Pure Facts: Orlando Pirates

Written By Themba Khumalo on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 | Wednesday, February 22, 2012

It is really discouraging losing out on the first round like we did on Sunday. I got to remind whoever cares to read this that loosing up with 3 goals has been a habit now.

During Ruud Krol's tenure, we lost to Kaizer Chiefs with 3 goals more than once, Ajax Cape Town also whooped us with the same score line.

Under Julio Leal, Tottenham Hotspur brought us to mother earth with a 3-0 whooping, Bidvest Wits did the same thing followed by the Angolans on Sunday.

On all these occasions irrespective of media and the haters ruling us out, we prevailed hence I maintain that, although that said fighting spirit seems to have faded away, we may fight back.

I pray, wish and hope we prove our worth. The 3-0 Losses then served as wake up calls thus we won the competitions. Just like Wits beat us 3-1 with a defender pulling one goal back for us, we can do this as a team.

We lost the Battle but we didn’t lose the fight... ask Mamelodi Sundowns who were meant or intending to hold us to a draw in the MTN8 semifinals.

You don’t sit back and intend to defend against my beloved Pirates. If Mandla Masango can score 2 goals to his team, what can stop the UEFA Medalist Benni McCarthy from doing the same thing with Siyabonga Sangweni pulling one back?

Analysing the game, we had about 64% of ball possession against their 36% so I bet this team is in the mould of Qwa Qwa Stars or Bush Bucks thus had we not made defensive errors, we could have faired well.

I wish you all feel me. Thugacation!
