Orlando Pirates jumped to second place after thrashing AmaZulu 4-1 on Saturday. With morale high among the fans, praise was heaped on head coach Milutin "Micho" Sredojevic for his team selection for the fixture.
Soccer Laduma reader Factsvsopinions seemed very excited about the starting line-up that included the likes of Luvuyo Memela in attack:
"Thanks for the goals, gents. We want to see more goals and coach Micho must refrain from trying to defend, we are not a defending side. Good to see Memela. I can't wait to see [Thabo] Qalinge as well."

In prior matches, fans pleaded with Micho to give other players in the squad a chance as they also have something to offer. The team selection against AmaZulu seems to have pleased supporters such as Mandalah Mubizah 86, who feels certain stars reacted well to the game time:
"That's it, coach! Giving other players the chance has worked for us, especially for [Kudakwashe] Mahachi, the guy is really good. Up the Bucs!"

While fans appreciate Micho's choices during the game, others also expect to see more of the same going forward. Soccer Laduma reader Spokemini wants consistency and more trophies for Bucs:
"This is what Bucs should be, Micho! I expect consistency going forward. We've got quality players to trouble any team, so use them, stamp your authority, we (supporters) are hungry for trophies, please!"
