Bucs miss a host of chances but get the three points

Posted: 14 September 2011 Time: 21:20

Orlando Pirates were wasteful in front of goal but still managed to secure a 1-0 Absa Premiership victory over Santos at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.

A single goal from striker Ndumiso Mabena just before halftime was enough to give The Buccaneers all three points.

Santos made a bright start to the match and Pirates goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs had to be at his absolute best to keep out an effort from Vuyisile Wana as he turned the striker’s shot around the post.

Bongani Ndulula should have done better with a short free-kick awarded inside the Santos box as Zairon van Beulen’s backpass was inexplicably picked up by Lee Langeveldt in the home goal. The Pirates striker blasted his effort over the bat though.

The game looked to be drifting towards halftime before Pirates grabbed the lead as Mabena rose highest to head home Daine Klate’s corner.

Mabena might have made it 2-0 soon after the break but his shot misses the target with the keeper beaten.

Langeveldt produced an excellent save to deny substitute Rudolf Bester with his first touch of the game after coming on, while at the other end, Santos’ on-loan midfielder from Kaizer Chiefs, Siyabulela Songwiqi, forced a fine save again from Josephs.

Pirates continued to create chances but failed to find the back of the net. In the end, one goal was enough and Bucs take home the points.

It was refreshing to see Ngobeni in the centre circle, dictating terms thus allowing Manyisa to see the ball more often while Klate made timely and clever runs. The game was more compact in the first period, however as we have come to expect, the boys upped their tempo and there was more rhythm and poetry in their play. We have the best Centre Midfielders in the Country in Ngobeni, Manyisa and arguably the most promising young talent in the continent, Andile Jali. Once the telepathic aspect is in full operation the football will be simply irrestible and only comparible to the great Brazilian team of 1970. individually gifted players are abundant at Pirates as always, however the team chemistry of this current crop, makes them a Great Team. With Benni upfront and Bester/Chansa/Bester behind him, scoring 3 to 4 goals per game is an eventuality for The Dream Team. With Doutie and Klate on the sides, drifting inside to allow Jele and Cloete to open spaces, Pirates will always have possession of the ball as Ace adds melody to the tune orchestrated by Jali. This brand of football seeks to positively enhance players' creativity and intent on and off the ball. Only Mamelodi Sundowns stands a chance in competing with Bucs, in the next 4 to 5 years. Champions we've always been, all we've done is raise the bar.
'The Dream Team'...sails on!!!

Jack Sparrow: Jack Sparrow has spoken

Jack i can only see passion in your writing, Clifford General Essien Ngobeni is unfortunate at the moment because the THE ROCKET SCIENTIST and UMKHONTO WESIZWE are doing a great job.

but Leal is smart coach who believes in rotating players.

In Leal we believe

Shapa! Bhakaniya Shapa!!! Because these Chimpanzes combined a league game and cup game and said they beat us 6-1, they must pay. It is pay back time and they will pay for each goal, one per match. We dont count the 1-1 last season and we dont count the pre-season games. So these means you paid back one goal and are left with five. which means the next five games you will lose definatley!!! We dont waste goals and we dont give goals away easy.

A narrow win is a good win against a bus. Its not our fault we score only one goal per game, all teams panic when they play Pirates. They cant attack us they park a Bus and hope for a counter. Zebras did that on Sartuday but yesterday against Ajax they played their normal game. Only Sundom have the nerve to attack us.

Phela against Santos we cant even see the goal poles and the net because the bus is obstructing us. So we must guess as to where the net is.
