Bucs Fan: 'Ah Tinkler... We Meet Again'

Orlando Pirates will look to carry on their fine start to the season at the top of the Absa Premiership when they take on Cape Town City at Orlando Stadium tonight. It will be an interesting affair as the two floor-crossing coaches match off against their former teams.

Supporters Club caught up with Orlando Pirates fan Gio de Waal to gauge how he feels about the upcoming fixture.

"Ah Tinkler… We meet again. It is a fresh wound for us, Bucs faithfuls. This guy caused me much heartache and head pain in our time together. I did enjoy the type of football he gave us but the results… I certainly lost my money's worth," he said.

"In terms of results, Tinkler curses Pirates, so I won't be surprised if Cape Town City actually walk away with the three points in this game, just because of some freak of nature. But if everything goes according to plan, then Pirates should be fine.

"We have Ndoro, we have Ace, and hopefully they have left Ovono on the training ground. Provided that all happens, then we should be fine with the three points today.

"I would like to imagine that all 22 players and two coaches will go for a beer afterwards. I mean, Muhsin will want to catch up with his former players, so will Tinkler. But who knows what happens behind the scenes? All we can hope for is continued happiness for the Happy People."

What is your prediction for the game tonight?
