ZC Facebook page

Post by sloandog »

There’s a video of all the players and staff dancing, and I honestly think it’s fantastic! Go and have a look if you haven’t already. There seems to be a wind of change in ZC. Better coverage in terms of photos and videos, the NPL, some younger lads getting selected like Shumba and Wez, finally debt free after so many years...the positives are there to see. Hopefully this is the beginning of something good..

Absolutely loved that video as soon as I watched it yesterday! I have now watched it a few times already. One of the bright things ZC have done. Kudos!

If there is one thing about Africa I miss, its the vibe, and when they dance, it's too good.

Who's the man mountain in the coaches group?

Also, I kind of want one of those training tops and red floppy hats. Let's hope an online store is the next thing ZC work on. Would be an added income.

Yeah, the training tops look pretty good!

The guy you are referring to is the physical trainer Webster Karimanzira.

And just adding, in that video, we definitely missed possibly our best guy when it comes to dancing - Chris Mpofu.

Tendai Chisoro looks in good shape! He almost looked like Brian Lara in that part of the video where he is practicing batting...

Yeah great stuff, Zimbabwe miss such a great opportunity by not doing more of this stuff or interviews and background stories with the players.

Fans want to get to know the players and hear their stories, they want to relate to their stars or hear about how they’ve grown up in different cultures.

Zimbabwe has an advantage there because as a country it’s so intriguing and diverse, the stories we know as die-hard fans about players growing up with crocodiles under their beds etc would be lapped up by overseas audiences

Any chance he knows how to hold a bat and clear his front foot?

They probably had to sew two shirts together for him.
