'I Don't Even Know What Kind Of Football Pirates Are Playing...'

In a recent Soccer Laduma interview, Orlando Pirates assistant coach and Bafana Bafana legend Bradley Carnell said that he was pleased with the chances created by the team so far this season. The supporters, however, do not seem as convinced…

"Editor, please tell Carnell that, as Buccaneer fans, we're not happy about the way our players are trying to serve us. We are not convinced at all about their displays. He should have been shameless to come out publicly and say that." – LeCowhlohlo

"This guy is not being open, if he is trying to hide behind a finger, which Pirates has he been watching play? They don't have any identity or any team play moves. They are doing a 'come what may come'. The only time their Ndoro, though enterprising as he is, gets to touch the ball is when he drops back to at least the touchline, leaving the forward line barren and ineffective. The midfielders have failed to create much threat to the opposition and most tend to be self-centered in providing clear chances to their teammates in good scoring positions. I wonder what Carnell is watching…" – Tindo

"The problem with Pirates is that they always play the ball to Ndoro, hoping he will score…" – Why I'm burned?

"We are not playing well at all, I don't even know what kind of football are you guys playing, from the back up to the front, to me this is not the Pirates that I know. You and Ertugral have to come with another plan as soon as possible, because this is terrible, especially our midfield, which is dead. I would like to see Gladwin Shitolo pairing with Gift Motupa in the middle of the park, and Memela and Qalinge on the left and right wing. Let Manyisa fight for his position. You also have to pair strong central defence Chabalala/Gyimah or Chabalala/Mobara. Also, Matlaba is not effective any more, let Phungwayo or Mthiyane play left back. Otherwise we are not going anywhere. Everybody must fight for his position." – Sbo$Bucs

What do you make of these supporters' assessments? Have you been impressed by Pirates this season?
