RDS spoilt for choice

Posted: 11 February 2013 Time: 03:46 pm

Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa will for the first time have all his strikers available for selection for the match against SuperSport United on Wednesday at Orlando Stadium.

Benni McCarthy, Takesure Chinyama and Collins Mbesuma are all fit and raring to go for the second half of the Premier Soccer League season and De Sa admits it is a "headache" deciding who will lead from the front on Wednesday.

"For the first time in a long time we have all these three strikers fit… Actually, this is the first time ever for us and it's been nice being able to work with all three of them. It is a bit of headache deciding who to play or not to play. So hopefully we will make the right choice," he says.

Meanwhile, De Sa says he made good use of the break during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations. The former Bidvest Wits coach, who joined Pirates in September, a couple of months after preseason, says he used the break to catch up.

"I always thought of it [Afcon break] as an advantage for me because I didn't have preseason with the team so I was looking forward to doing things with a little more patience. So I had to use it the best way I can and I did. We had a five-week sort of mini preseason, you could call it," he concludes.

Kick-off for the match between Bucs and Matsatsantsa is at 19h30.

To the ghosts nation:

The 2nd half of the league is upon us. I hope we will stand resolute behind our team since the vultures in the form of zebrish journos will be wishing the demise of Pirates.

Should Pirates be on top of the league on wednesday, they will intensify negetive stories about us. They will say Pirates under pressure & will not win the league while they have failed to say the same against KC even though it is vivid to all that the 6 point lead is demishining.

- Stories of lack of unity among players will surface.
- Contract negotiations between all stakeholders will be interpreted as unhappiness.
- Unfounded stories of interference will be cited to destabilize us.
- Criticism of our players will be worse than the one that Khumalo faced, it will be the same as the one that Teko suffered. It will be intended to confuse us & give KC an advantage.
- Speculative stories of our players misbehaving will rise, etc.

Let us stand united...

He joined September and then we were close to 10pts behind log leaders, fast forward to december 2012 you went to recess with only 1 point behind. All without having pre-season with the team. I said it before and I will say it again, Leal achieved in just 6 months in the current squad the same thng that took the once decorated vv 3 seasons to achieve, and palacious in just 6 months achieved what vv failed to achieved in 3 seasons, ie. league title. If RDS or any other coach can come up with a good recipe he can utilize the ingredients (playing personnel) at Bucs and make success out of. All the best to RDS and the team for the remainder of the season. As fans we will always support you.

I heard Eto Mabena is planning to buy a tazz to go to training with after Lekgwathi increased the fare to ride in his cressida by 55%. Aparently this cressida was a gift from the chairman (thank u chairman) for winning the fair play award at the mice year end function. he was lucky to win after he kicked less balls than mahamutsa .
==============================================

Hahahaha.........the ride price was increased due the car(Cressida) being now fitted with a Blaupunkt stereo and the dash now has a fur cloth tht has a head-wagging dog figurine sitting on it....#Mayfair Street Customs 101#.....

Good but I'm still worried about him not buying a quick and mobile striker like Kadi or Henyekane to complement one of the 3 big strikers we have when we're playing the 4-4-2 formation. Otherwise if we're gonna play the 4-3-3 formation then we won't be in need of a second striker as we'll play Klate and Myeni on either side of BBM17 upfront. Our midfield is just packed with outstanding quality but my other concern was the failure to buy a cover defender coz Siya and Lucky will need cover with the hectic schedule that we have, Gcaba is not good enough to the job for me.

Other than that I'm satisfied with this team and we have enough quality in our ranks to retain our league title and do well in Africa, the Nedbank will just be a bonus.
