Bucs Need Stability And Consistency, Not Talent

As the second biggest club in the country and one of the most successful, the need to compete in all competitions gets tougher season by season.

Teams in South African football generally have patches of dominance; one could think back to SuperSport United where they claimed league honours for three seasons in a row. We could also reflect on our very own double treble success a few years ago as mini patches of dominance.

How, though, could we get that back, looking at the current situation at the club?

I feel that at the moment, we don’t need star names in the team or decorated coaches. We need a foundation, ground works so to say… comprising of stability and consistency.

We have all the elements to succeed, but at some point it needs to come together. There is no doubt the team is playing some attractive and effective football in recent times, and could also be sign of the club finding identity on the playing field.

That would be the consistency element in our rebuilding phase. With regards to stability, the management team should now make the bold decision of the either appointing Eric Tinkler as head coach, or start fresh with a different mentor at the helm

On a positive note, a new coach could revitalise the team with fresh ideas and plans, but with Tinkler seemingly on the right path, why should we fix something that isn’t broken. In Tinklers’ favour, he knows the fabric of the club and knows what it means to honour the Bucs crest - which is something no foreign coach would understand.

We have the players, they are doing well… all we need is guidance in the form of stability and consistency.

Do you think those elements will spark a Pirates revival?
