Bullets dominance has diluted BT derby – pundit


One of the country’s football pundits Enos Chatama says the Blantyre derby has lost its flavour as compared to the years gone by due to Nyasa Big Bullets’ dominance over sworn rivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers.

Nomads vs Bullets

Bullets have dominated previous meeting.

Nyasa Big Bullets versus Wanderers remains Malawi’s Football heavyweight and titanic clash ever since the introduction of Malawi’s top division League.

But as the two sides set to face each other in the first round of 2016 TNM Super League this afternoon, Chatama who has fond memories of how it used to be back then insists a lot has changed regarding the derby as the hype and flavour it used to carry has long long gone.

“Back then the derby was a high profile match not as it is today, in the first place it was like a war, Bullets and Wanderers had to launch a fierce fight at the Kamuzu Stadium and the hype was high and the tension was high as well.

“Supporters used to mock one another, it even took 3-4 weeks people talking about the derby but nowadays it is lacking the tension,” he said. Chatama attributed the lack of excitement before the derby to Bullets’ dominance over their old enemy in recent years.

He said: “So to me I think it has lost the flavour because it is being dominated by one team, while in the past it was like a seesaw whereby the other game Bullets won and the other game Wanderers were also winning, but these days Wanderers have lost a lot of derbies, in the past 15 meetings Bullets have won 10 games.”



  1. Bullets has indeed dominated but l don’t think this would have any impact on the hype of the derby. l think that it’s just maybe the time for football to go down just like education.
