Pirates' biggest problem
Most people believe that injuries to the strikers like Lepasa and Mabasa is the main problem for the lack of goals for Orlando pirates. I'll admit that the injuries play some role in the goal scoring problem, but the main issue is much simpler than that.
The biggest problem for Orlando Pirates is composure, particular in the last third. The players are too quick in moments where they should compose themselves. That's why it's so easy to get them to be off side.
The technical team must look to vary the play a little. It seems the players are too concerned with just running the whole game. This lack of composure leads to players giving the ball away cheaply, and hurrying their shots at goal where a calm finish would have been ideal.
Yes, the speed is necessary during transitions from defense to attack, but once in the final third, accuracy in more important. You cannot have accuracy if you're running faster than you can think.
There's a certain calm about Azola Tshobeni, he might be the solution. Only time will tell.
