Five Things To Look Forward To At Pirates

Orlando Pirates have been exceptionally busy during the transfer window, leaving many fans excited for the upcoming season. But what exactly is there to look forward to? Let's take a look! 

The New Signings
Change is always good, and for Pirates it will be particularly so, as they have added great skill, depth and expertise to their squad. With nearly a dozen players already signed before July has even started, Bucs has shown they mean business. Now it is up to the new signings to prove the same thing…

Ertugral's Expertise
Muhsin Ertugral's appointment on the Bucs bench has left many fans excited at the prospect of what joys and positive results the new season will bring. The Turkish tactician is one of the most qualified coaches in the league, and he will surely better the squad.

Challenging For A Trophy
After ending the previous campaign without a trophy, the squad will certainly go all out to ensure they challenge for silverware. And with the squad they now have, it is almost certain they will put in a good run in all competitions.

Bucs' 80th Birthday Celebrations
2017 will mark the 80th year Orland Pirates have been in existence, making for a special celebration. The Mayfair outfit, which was originally known as Orlando Boys Club, was founded in 1937. Surely a special tribute or event will take place to honour the great Soweto giants?

A Fully Fit Manyisa
The Sea Robbers' season took a turn for the worse when they lost Oupa Manyisa to a terrible ankle injury, seeing him spend the majority of the campaign sidelined. This term, though, he is expected to be back to his best. Who doesn't want a fully fit Manyisa on the field? 

What are you looking forward to most?
