Orlando Pirates haven't had the best of seasons. The Buccaneers finished in 11th position, outside the top eight. It has since been reported that the Sea Robbers will make some changes to their squad going into the new campaign.
Kaizer Chiefs are now the only club of the so-called big three that hasn't won the CAF Champions League after Sundowns won it earlier this year. The Amakhosi faithful cannot wait for the day their beloved team is crowned the African champions.
Where would a team be without a lethal man or two up front? Orlando Pirates have had profound strikers in the past, who had the supporters celebrating on the stands as they continuously slotted the ball into the back of the net.
Although it is seemingly no longer the case in modern SA football, back in the day strikers used to be the source of goals for every team. Kaizer Chiefs have had many striking combinations during the PSL era, and a lot of them have yielded results in terms of hitting the back of the net.
Mamelodi Sundowns' dominance in the PSL era is credited by many to their strikers. The Brazilians have long had an eye for good attackers, and have seven league titles since the beginning of the PSL era in the 1996/97 season.
The Buccaneers have had a number of hard-tackling and composed central defenders over the years. Today, Supporters Club takes a look at the central defenders who have played a role in Orlando Pirates' success, and we would like you to suggest your best Bucs central defensive combination!
Mamelodi Sundowns star Khama Billiat has a year left on his contract with the Chloorkop side, and is reportedly happy to extend his stay, but would like his buyout clause (currently €2.5 million – about R35.8 million) to be decreased to keep his options open.
