'If They Continue With This Policy, Bucs Fans Can Forget About Trophies…' – Fan's Comment

Orlando Pirates will be looking to beef up their squad ahead of the 2017/18 season after a disappointing 2016/17 campaign. The Buccaneers secured an 11th-place finish, and are out of the top eight, which has not happened in 30 years for the Mayfair team.

One supporter analysed Pirates' transfer policy, and pointed out that the abundance of players the club has been bringing could be having a negative effect on the team.

"When teams like Sundowns pump out cash, Bucs go for swap deals, they are not afraid to give away three players for one player in return. That comes from their signing spree where they brought players in combos like when they signed Mpho Makola, Manti Moholo and Ayanda Gcaba from Free State Stars. They did that again last season where Mobara, Norodien, Jafta, Nkosi and Chabalala joined Bucs from Ajax and Free State Stars, with Okwuosa, Van Heerden and Lorch joining Bucs in January from Chippa United.

"If you look at the players Pirates got in combos, not all were quality. Should they continue with this transfer policy, Bucs fans must forget about trophies. Even in the mid-2000s, these combos were never successful." – ZaxBucs-5
