Orlando Pirates beat Bidvest Wits

Posted: 24 November 2012 Time: 19:55

Goals from Thabo Matlaba and Tlou Segelola saw Orlando Pirates beat Bidvest Wits 2-0 at Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.

With Kaizer Chiefs having lost to Platinum Stars earlier in the day, Bucs were desperate for the win to close the gap at the top of the standings.

The Clever Boys started the game in a very defensive manner and seemed to have frustrated the home side until a moment of brilliance by Matlaba secured the opening goal.

It was a goal against the run of play in the 33rd minute. Matlaba got the ball just over the half way line and he did not wait too long until firing in a thunderous long-range attempt, which sailed high and over Ryan Harrison and into the top corner.

In the 42nd minute Calvin Kadi and Sibusiso Vilakazi combined well, but Pirates were quick enough to stop the potential danger.

It took three minutes into the second half for Bucs keeper Senzo Meyiwa to have his first save of the game from Ofentse Nato, who just could not get enough power behind his effort.

Then in the 55th minute came the moment of controversy as Wits had a penalty appeal turned down. Calvin Kadi beat Siyabonga Sangweni for pace and the Bucs defender seemed to clip the striker in the box, but the referee waved play on.

And it was Pirates who scored the next goal. This time, Matlaba supplied the ball to Segolela, who flicked the ball over the advancing Harrison for another fine goal.

ORLANDO PIRATES coach Roger De Sa has made startling claims against his ex wife, saying she owns an unlicensed gun.
In his court papers before the Randburg Magistrates' Court, De Sa hit back at allegations made by his ex-wife earlier this year when she applied for a protection order against the coach.
This after De Sa started harassing and threatening Henderson and her new boyfriend Deon van Rensburg with violence.
In her founding affidavit in May, Nicole Henderson claimed, among other things, that De Sa owns a gun and that he is mentally unstable
About Henderson's claim that De Sa was always threatening to beat her and her new boyfriend - Free State businessman Deon van Rensburg - with a baseball bat, the former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper(De Sa) said he kept the bat for his own safety.

When we are playing teams that rely on their attacks coming from our left,which is their right,I think it would be a good idea to play both Matlaba(as a left wing) and Phungwayo(as a left back).
With Matlaba's work rate,he sure will provide sufficient cover for the left back whoever it is.
This would mean that Jele would be playing in his rightful position,since he won't last the whole game he can be substituted after plus minus 60 minutes.
Matlaba would go fill the right back position,then that is where you will put in a fresh Daine Klate to finish off the opposing team.
In some games I think this approach will be necessary

Just as I thought and true to what we in the Bucs camp have been saying about you homos and hobos from NaZoorena; nothing but vile hoodlums that are prematures at birth, level of thinking and in the sack!

I read your little piece towards me and I couldn't help see how directionless and chopped up it was. I had a hard time trying to figure out what "sex" game you on about where I was supposedly you and your goons bitch. Sadly the only thing I noticed was your female hormonial bitch-made deficiencies getting the most of you.

From where I'm sitting and how you described how Chimps would "f*ck" me, I could tell that either you're still a virgin or wageja ikuku yentombazane 6x before you finally stuck it in the hole when you lost your virginity. Lemme not remind you how I had your mom on top of my d*ck with my FAMOUS middle finger imukopa endunu yakhe yoku kaka and later stick the same finger in her mouth to lick on; and that was only before the four play by the way!

And you ask why that was before the four play? Well that's because when I was finished I spilled my condom of sperms on her chicken skin body belly with Zebra stripes that you came from and I went off to take a shower while your b*tch mom smudged my sperms on her p*ssy as a measure of four play. I came back and she still told me I have the most good looking d*ck that has a head better than yours and gives brain shinnier than yours.

So the next you see my finger on this site, just remember ibikopa ubuni na kuphi. And let that be a shout out to you and your goons that are yet to lose their virginitys to even Carol Manana!

Now who's bhebhing who? Tsek mgodoyi ka Bobby!!!

One of the reasons why we call Orlando Pirates BARCELONA is because of the similar style of play (carpet football) by the following similar players!!!
1. Manyisa = INESTA
2. JALI = XAVI
3. MATLABA = JORDI ALBA
4. JELE = ABIDAL
5. SANGWENI = PIQUE
6. LEKGWATHI = PUYOL
7. DK7 = DAVID VILLA (DV7)
8. MASALESA = FABREGAS
9. NTSHUMAYELO = SERGIO BUSQUETS
10. MYENI (#11) = MESSI (#10)
11. JOSEPHS = VALDEZ
12. PHUNGWAYO = ALVES
13. SOX = SANCHEZ ALEXIS
14. JUJU = PEDRO
15. MAHAMUTSA = MASCHERANO
So , BUCS + CELORNA =BUCSELONA FC …………Once a Pirate ,always a Pirate! Since 1937
PIR 4-0 kaizer+balck leaorpads+chiefs ………..yes I was there at the stadium dancing next to Bucs first Lady (the now No.1 supporter ya Pirate)


THERE IS NO WAY KAIZER CHIEFS CAN WIN AGAINST PLATINUM STARS W/O YEYE SIMPLY BECAUSE IT IS A ONE-MAN TEAM .FACT!
===========================================================
Buccaneer! your qoute on friday. You were so spot on my bucs on this yeye kaizer chimps. I like your analogy of this two great teams in Europe and Africa, spot on...
A ghost is hot on the heels of the chimpanzee and the chimpanzee have its eyes filled with tears out of its sockets and its tongue out of its mouth, with saliva drooling out of its mouth running for its life. Thier comment on being on top despite yesterdays games are only sour grapes. We will finish them in their kraal at FNB.

its not easy to the zebras, i mean just 2 regular players were missing in their line up which are Mathoho and Letsholonyane and they were clueless,
pirates on the other hand have been missing about 5 key players: Josephs,Jali,BBM,Mahamutsa and Sangweni who played in Wits game but have managed to win all their past games so now who has debth
the Question now is is Mashaite deserves a bafana call as they have been making noise about that because on Saturday he was not a marshall at all he was actualy a confused security

It appears you are only happy simply because tortoises are on top of the log, whereas you should be concerned of the gap thats been reduced to only 1 point, whereas it was at 7pts at some stage(on Wednesday morning). League race is a marathon and like any marathon the crucial part is to have a big gap in between you and those coming from behind, and not having them closing the gap especially if they have won the title more than once in the past 7yrs whilst you won none, as the road to the triumph is very much fresh in their minds whilst you may have no clue

For those with short memory, its something new and somewhat worthy to be celebrated to be on top of Bucs when the season isnt even halfway through, but for us its not something new as it occured (during first round) several times in the past 7yrs to current season but tortoises won no league title, and are still searching for league title in virtually a decade now, meanwhile Bucs has won league title more than once in the past 7yrs. While to others being on top of Bucs is an achievement, to Bucs lifting the title at the end of the season is, while where we are during the 1st 15 or so games of the season is just viewed as part of the marathon as league race is a marathon with league title the prize, not a "im on top of Pirates" competition.
