Thulasizwe Mbuyane scores twice as Orlando Pirates win

Posted: 16 October 2010 Time: 17:28

Mamelodi Sundowns tasted their first defeat of the 2010/11 Premiership season on Saturday afternoon, losing 2-1 to Orlando Pirates at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium.

Thulasizwe Mbuyane netted a brace for the Buccaneers, while Mabhuti Khenyeza scored late on to ensure a nervy finish.

The first 35 minutes were a disappointment, with neither side able to provide any kind of penetration. Bucs enjoyed the majority of possession put pressure on the Brazilians’ defence whenever Daine Klate and Ruben Cloete combined down the left, but too often the final ball was lacking.

The match finally came to life in the 35th minute when – almost out of nowhere – Pirates took the lead. Mbuyane took advantage of some a defensive lapse from a throw-in and Ezenwa Otorogu’s lay-off to fire a beautiful long-range shot past Calvin Marlin.

Sundowns were disappointing and only managed their first shot on target in the 40th minute, but Moeneeb Josephs hung onto Franklin Cale’s free-kick.

And then Pirates added a second in first half injury-time – a beautifully worked goal which Mbuyane finished. Otorogu played a well-weighted pass to put Andile Jali in behind the backline, and the young midfielder pulled a fine ball back to the far post for Mbuyane to bury.

Sundowns made a double change at the start of the half, throwing on Khenyeza and Lebohang Mokoena. The former almost scored with his touch, hooking a volley onto the crossbar from a corner-kick.

On 55 minutes Mbuyane spurned a glorious chance for a goal that would have brought him his hat-trick and effectively ended the game as a contest, failing to beat Marlin from point-blank range after a great low cross from Klate.

It seemed as if Sundowns’ were destined to be frustrated for the entire 90 minutes, but with just a minute of regulation time left, Khenyeza fired home a volley to make it 2-1 and set-up a nail-biting ending.

There was almost nine minutes of added time – most of it added due to the many injuries suffered by Pirates players in what was a bruising encounter – but the visitors managed to hold out and claim a famous 2-1 win.

This Jali guy is a marvel to watch!!! He outplayed this overrated Matthew cow.m if Madala Nyandoro was not there and Jali did not get injured, it was going to be worse for Matthew.

i will repeat this again, soccer is won on the field not from the media utterances or history as records were only made to be broken.Well done pirates once again for proving that the impossible can be made possible and also opening the title race wide open.For sundowns your only pride can be the fact that you were relieved of the pressure of the unbeaten record maybe you can now play better as there is no more pressure.
PERSONALLY I AM TOO HAPPY COZ MY TEAM ARSENAL WON,BEAUTIFUL FOOTBALL PLUS RESULTS VIVA GUNNERS.

Motsepe must deport this Pakistan Hamas guy. He did not read my comments. I said Cheeseboy make Sunflop play and the Cow Khanyeze always has a good game against pirates. i laughed when I saw Cheeseboy in the bench and I celebrated to see the cow Khanyeze warming the bench. Secong half when I saw these two, I knew that we are in trouble and it took Krol long to react.

You know,,,,,,, I`m proud to have lost to a Pirates side that is playing the football of their lives, bar the last minute antics ofcourse which were totally unsportsmanlike and not consistent with the spirit of fair play.

Overall though, the Barks were all over us and I have no qualms whatsoever over this defeat......it was necessary, mh! a wake up call for the boys to keep at it for the entire '98'mins. from start to finish since leaving it late can never work for you every game.

Antonio got it totally wrong from the onset with regards to his defensive minded line up that is,,,,,,,,,Franklin Cale Oh! Franklin Cale! What a waste of a bodybuilder-cum wrestler-cum Heavyweight! He would have been a top contender at the Commonwealth games hhayi e-grawndini! Yoh! Idlala amasimba consistently le bhari, but Lopez keeps selecting him Nx!! But then wvwv my all time favourite u-Moriri bekasindwa yikhanda! lol!


And then.........It would be a crime if we do'nt all bow to the new 'big thing' in Mzantsi football,,,,,,,,,ANDILE "The marvelous lil' genius" JALI! He! hee! heeeeeh! Iyababa le laaitie bafethu!

Fatty Patty ate dust together with our old 'used to be' reliable trekker Esrom Nyandoro.....What a fine talent thi boy is, Jali deserves all the praise in the world Wow! Thinkin' of it, he could have given Fatty a shibobo or two but kept it pro, Ay! Ngiyagcwala san! Aweeeeeee! Mabhakaniya!

Well done to the victorious Bucs family......Kidkudu, The King of 'Galaxi's', Superbrand a.k.a Nosi, Lilwitchy, Shakira ,,,,,,nabobonke abalandeli abasha be Pirates abozaqala ukuvunduka from ema tjotjombeni! lol!

A proud Brazillian still! We are still the Bafana baDowns!, "Angeke Saphelamandla"! You won the battle not the War! Ka bo Yellow!

Sunflop tried using kicking tactics, the referee did not handle the game very well. It was too physical. At one stage the game resemble a hospital and Supersport has this red cross hospital sign everytime a player is injured as well. It was surprising that after the game Sunflops complained about delaying tactics. The only injury faked is when two Pirates players were kicked and the referee did not give us anything. joseph decided to go down as well to buy time and get our players back in the field of play. Remember last game we played against sundowns, they scored late equaliser in when Mahamutsa was out being treated. we went on to lose that game, it was a painful lose because we were all over Sunflops.

@Sweyts,

I have respect for you. you are a good loser giving credit where its due. Hhayi lama Kaizer Cabbages who throw cabbages when they lose and blame sunflop. Keep it up. I am glad that we beat one of the best teams in Mzansi with the best players kept on the bech i.e. Cheeseboy. Bench Cheesboy and that cow Khenyeze when we meet again and the sun will go down on you.

@Sweyts,

So you wanted to play with Pirates minus two players? Thats unfair. Thats what you did last time and it was nearly reapeted. its also unfair for Sunflop to kick our players.

@Sweyts,

Josephs deserve to be no.1 for what he did, he read the game very well. Was Sundowns that desparate wanting to play against 9 men.

Referees also never add time on the added time, Sunflops were given 10mins. There is no excuse. 6min was indicated but Sundowns was given extra 4min on that time.

@All psl penties,

Thanks to all the Kaizer Cabbages including the chief Cabbage a.k.a All psl penties. They had the loudest nose as if they were going to play Pirates. They gave Sunflop the bad luck, usually Sunflop beat us or draw, of cause the use dirty tricks like kicking our players. Sunflop will get red cards if they can play like that against Kaizer Cabbages.
