Santos beat Orlando Pirates 3-0

Posted: 14 March 2012 Time: 21:33

Santos gave Orlando Pirates a 3-0 footballing lesson on Wednesday night.

Erwin Isaacs opened the scoring, before Eleazar Rodgers got a brace.

Santos came out of the blocks like lightning, attacking from the first minute.

Two minutes in, a long ball from the back found Erwin Isaacs, who beat the offside trap and whipped round Moeneeb Josephs and tapped into an empty net.

Pirates were put on the back foot and resorted to tentative long-range efforts, while Santos were bouyed by their lead and dominated the midfield.

Isaac Chansa sent a rocket into the crowd, which didn't really trouble Pa Dembo Touray.

The Santos goalkeeper had a solid game and made comfortable stops from Benni McCarthy and Dikgang Mabalane towards the end of the half.

The match reached half-time at 1-0, but Bucs came out of the dressing-rooms with more confidence and intent.

Nonetheless, Santos managed to double their lead on the half-hour mark, when a great free-kick from Matthew Pattison found the head of Eleazar Rodgers.

The lanky striker made no mistake, and the Capetonians were up 2-0.

Pirates looked out of chances, and in the 73rd minute Santos made sure of the win.

Pattison was at it again, and sent the ball through to Rodgers, who hit home past Josephs to secure the People's Team all three points.

Ricardo Skippers and then Vuyisile Wana were unable to make it four for Santos, who had to play out seven minutes of extra time, but held on for the win.

I wonder what will happen if Pirates doesn't do well @ all in future because every time it loses most vocal fans disappear on this blog.Is it regrouping?

Last night I said I don't want to see Pirates on top of the log because of the noise level & if they do get there,god be with us all.

Yes we lost.Its time for every Dick & Tom to celebrate.Anyway,thus football,but to us the Bucs fratenity,the most important thing is who celebrate forever.When Ajax beat us last year with the same score,fools celebrated,but when we beat Arrow in our last game,we celebrated and even today we are still celebrating.This is a reminder to Zebras and Flops.

Moving on to the next game Id like to see Cloete on the bench. Matlaba on the left, Nzunga on the right. Sangweni must stick to his position instead of playing as mid fielder. Bennie and Rantie must come in the second half when the opponents are tired and less organized. Jali must take his position back please. This is not the time to experiment.

The only blemish is the fielding of 2 left backs at the same time.The timing of the substitution was spoton.Only i dont know what hit us.Chansa must be benched then a striker takes his place to attack with BBM.In that way we can easily cruise past Zebraz.Chansa waste a lot of chances with his useless long drive.Dont panic maChamps,though its hard to swallow.Remember the only thing we can quickly eraise this nightmare is through both Zebraz and Flops.I cant waite for those games.
