Should JZ walk the plank?
The humiliating defeat at the hands of rivals Mamelodi Sundowns should raise more questions as to the capacity and abilities of the current coach to deliver. The fact that the outcome of the game didn't surprise not one Bucs legend but two namely (Steve and Tso Vilakazi) should serve as an indication of the problems and directionless that exist within the club. Watching both so called team leaders in Hlatshwayo and Jele play like amateurs was probably the best indicator of the mess that has manifested at Mayfair.
The team has changed it's style of play from patient build ups to one-way football hoof the ball over the top and play off the second ball a tradition or style very foreign at Orlando Pirates. The midfielders who are used to playing "carpet football" and renowned for their finnes and style are now compelled to play off the second ball as a result they're rendered redundant. Vilakazi said " with this guy you never know what to expect because he likes fixing things that don't need fixing".
Yes he won the Mtn8 and yes his record over 50 + game is impressive however having said that is he our best option? Has he managed to deliver at the highest stage? Has he managed to introduce a beautiful brand of football that we are witnessing from clubs coached by young Germans like him all over the world?
The answer is a big NO.
