Hello fellow Buccaneers! Today the draw for the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup will take place and there is an air of positivity around Orlando Pirates and whether or not they can lift the trophy. Will the Bucs be able to defend their title?
After making so many cup finals last season, this was the only piece of silverware that our boys brought home after defeating Bidvest Wits in the final last season.
The 4-0 drubbing of Tornado FC has left the team buoyed with confidence and joy, as they cruised through to the next round of the competition.
It will take four more victories in the competition to ensure victory and that the silverware will return back home to Mayfair, and this year it looks highly possible…
The squad seems to be revived under Eric Tinkler, and there is certainly an air of confidence in the outfit.
With the strikers having found their scoring boots, and the defence is now tightly knitted together too.
Fellow Bucs, with the league and the CAF Confederations Cup still to play for, do you think it is possible that the Nedbank Cup will be the start of an accumulation of silverware in 2015?
