Lane: Bucs Must Focus On Regaining Their Dominance

Pirates Legend Gavin Lane says Pirates must regain dominance

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 01, 2018 11:04 AM

Orlando Pirates legend, Gavin "Stability" Lane, believes that 2018 should be a year where Pirates focus on regaining their dominance.

The legendary defender told Soccer Laduma that the Buccaneers' inconsistent displays have made them a less dominant force in the league.

"Pirates must use next year to regain their dominance," Lane tells Soccer Laduma. "I feel that Pirates aren't the same force as when we were playing. Teams no longer fear Pirates. They are able to get points from them even in their home games."

"The first order of business for the new year should be to win home games against opposition and then build from there," adds Lane.

He further tells Soccer Laduma that Pirates are a big team that rely heavily on reputation built on dominance. "The best teams in the world are those that manage to stay dominant even if the league continues to grow and other teams become stronger. We have seen the emergence of teams like SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City."

"Pirates will have to maintain their dominance if they want to continue being title contenders. I wish to see them bring in the right kind of players who will represent the club with the right kind of mentality," concluded the former defender.

Mr. Stability, you are right. This team no longer carries any threat. The strikers can't score a goal to save their lives, the midfielders can't find a pass and the defenders are always finding the back of their own net(maybe they should swap positions with the strikers because they at least can score). The keeper comes out in war paint but he can't hold his position and has soft squishy hands that cannot even parry a shot coming from the opposite end, let alone hold onto it.

@Superbrand "Man let's give Micho credits please what I don't like to him is that he like to beg his cow Gabuza to score more goals but he is failing but I suspected our management maybe they said to Micho if he failed to win games with this players then he will be fired let them give Micho more quality players now there is a change to his plans than before now we must also give credit more to Rhulani and Khoza mustn't disappoint him he must give them fresh blood before this period ends I don't support what are they doing with Chippa

Indeed we need a right type of players who will represent the club with the right kind of mentality,adding to that we need to release lazy players and cows like Makola,Gabuza,Gcaba,Morrison,S ar and Memela etc,these culprits almost get us to religation and the only way to move forward is to get rid of these stumbling blocks,you cant clean your house with a dirty water

Micho cant handle a big squad. He is confused....every game we have plenty changes. He did the same when he first coached Pirates and he was not successful. You need consistency. Micho does not know his back 4 and his keeper. He pretended to know his striker in Gabuza and so far it has backfired

Well said my Captain, Mr Khoza need to be very involved in this team for us to move forward. He must sign top quality players from now on, and stop signing unknown players from psl teams(Chipa United) and lower divisions. He must also transfere list of the dead woods and give 100% support to the coach. Should he fail to do so, we gonna loose sponsors and fight for relegation.

I think Khoza should give his legend's department at Mayfair like the management and technical director the like of Gavin Lanes, Helman Mkhalele,William Okpara,Jerry Skhosana and Dumisa Ngobe because I don't think Screamer and Mbele 've kicked the ball in their life's

Long time Legend. It is not easy. Bucs and fau are the victims of small teams. I expect the situation to remain the same for a very very long time.
