@lord vincent......i applaud your attitude of demandind perfection from our beloved bucs.perfection is in our DNA unlike others who go over the moon with a mere draw.but the thing is this win is not a bad result.those Zanaco boys were completely neutralised by Jali and okonkwo.good game from Klate and tlou.howevver my worry is Meyiwa's failure to handle corners
Perfection is the key! We must always strive towards it. Every game we must be better than the last. I've seen Barcelona win 5-0 but Pep Guardiola demanding more effort in the press like they won by a mere goal. That is what made Barca such an impressive machine. It is that kind of mentality that make payers like Segolela become more complete players that do not depend solely on speed. That kind of mentality will make players like Gcaba play like they are natural center backs each time they are deployed there.

I'm happy we won and I'm happy about the effort put in midfield. Jali was just awesome. It's the team effort that I'm not happy with. The parts were brilliant but the whole was not and I blame Roger for that. He is too afraid of losing
we beat mazembe

Listen to these critics with their spew of halitosis! Even their favourite grazing ground Dickoff told them yesterday that Pirates has the better of their Southern African counterparts. I even had to dumb it down for them in basic arithmetic but they still wouldn't let it knock in their skulls.

To the haters: GTFOHWTBS (Get The F*ck Outta Here With That Bull Sh*t)!

I wonder if Gordon was watching the game and how can he not even being convinced by including "The maestro Jali" in his squad.... What I like about us we are a team with great talent that can be seen by everyone we don't need to be included in Banyana Banyana to be seen how great we are... On the contrary. Gordon should know he doesn't own the team....

As much as we shud hv scored 3 goals up, I think RDS shud b given a little pat on the back for starting with a positive lineup, 2 wingers, 2 strikers upfront did show intentions to get a win. Our guys lacked aggression sometimes, first half zanaco showd too much respect we shud hv buried. Again 1 nil is a slim lead, bt we are on to the nxt 1.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that we won I'm just not happy about how we did it. To me the parts were excellent but the whole was not. I can't be happy with that. I can't be happy with Jali playing well but the team lacking that special something. In the last stanza I saw 3 Pirates players facing 6 defenders with no incoming support. What is that? Being happy with a 1-0 scoreline against a team that is on the backfoot? What more when we face teams like TP Mazembe! How are we going to attack while we are so concerned about losing?

We have to be demanding while giving credit. In the beginning Roger was winning while playing good football. Now every game he says the same thing about how the game was not pretty. Why is that? Must we always blame it on the opposition? Complaceny will result in us winning nothing this season. If me demanding more effort even after a win that could have been better than it was, so be it! Had Zanaco equalized from Senzo's mistakes then comments would have been very different and the so called positives would be none existant

If one is looking to celebrate a win afta de team achieved dat perfectly wthout any faults....den in soccer u've chosen a rong sport

zanaco had 3 strikers upfront, mwape, namba 15 n mkandawire wu was introduced....Pirates dominated position, even de stats frm de game which wher shown on TV agrees wth me....

Eish, some pple failed to even notice dat had Pirates took all their chances, we shuld hve scored many goals....our playas wher scrumbling in dat box, but i blame it on de pitch. De pitch neva allowed a free flowing soca, big ups to both teams fo trying by all mins to put de ball on de ground

de ball was uncontrolable dats y zanaco even made many defensive errors....some may argue dat dey shuld get used to de pitch since its their homeground, fogeting dat ur advatage can work against u

de ada positiv is dat our defence protected senzo well.
To those wu ar goin to comment, stop embarasing ur pathetic selves. Mabena scored wth a header n at pirates penalties are taken by Jali

dat ref was great, wish he was frm PSL, he stood his ground infront of a big crowd.

Question (Beyonce voice): Where was Zanaco's "plan" for Pirates? Did Mwape score as the Zebras said he would? Did we lose as they said we would?

Independent Bucs! Sing with me Zebras! hahaha
