@M.O.M. I can see you only started watching football when Dunu FC got that back door CAF. Nyauza, Makola, Gabuza & Matlaba were there when we won Nedbank Cup under VV. You must get your facts right before you comment football, football is not for banana's like you young man

@Bucs_10...well said Buccaneers we are excited about all the developments taking place within our beloved team and clear indications are there that our team is heading into the right direction and we will not easily get intimidated or be shaken by criticism thrown at us by the zoo and yellow prison faithfools...we are Orlando Pirates...more than just a team...
