Jah neh, it is not raining but pouring for the Buccaneers, i suppose most players are tired of dry seasons.
On a different note, i think Mabopane Y. Masters really mean business, and it should not come as a surprise to see them in the PSL in the 2007/08 season.

the owner shouldn't changed the name though. some fans might stop attending their games because of the name. atleast when the name says Mabopane, people feel like they are part of the team. Wink

You are very much correct sober-master.
I stay in Mabopane, and use to associate myself with the team even after being taken to Laudium because the name Mabopane was retained.
But changint the name altogether tells me it is not my taem anymore but belongs to a certain community, maybe they should have included a name like Tshwane or Pretoria if they wanted to get rid of "Mabopane".

Nna I think it permissable for Pirates to take stock of the past season. The players that have been released did not set the scene alight either and in the case of Dinha, he is the wrong end of the 30s. As a long standing supporter of Pirates, what I saw in the last two games is enough to convince me that we may improve. We have too many "stars" and we need to get rid of some while introducing fresh legs. I agree with the management approach: first get rid of the undesireables then plug the gaps with more capable players. Therefore, I am not pertubed by the constant releasing of players (as long as the core is kept)... By the way I am beginning to enjoy this site. Well done Vhamblidinho...

i'll try and reduce the width of the banner to make sure it fits well. thanks for highlighting this to me.

Maritzburg United’s midfielder David Makgale will hold talks with the club regarding his future after Orlando Pirates made it clear that they are interested in him.

“Look, I have one year left on my contract which has a clause stating I can leave if another club wants me. I have considered that age is not on my side and if a tempting offer, like the one Pirates has propose, I must consider it,”

“All I will be discussing with Maritzburg’s management is a better deal, or else I will have to take the Pirates’ offer,” said Makgale, who was voted the club’s Player of the Year last season.

Copenhagen-based newspaper, Ekstra Bladet, and Denmark's most popular football magazine, the Tipsbladet, have both been quoted as saying that Nomvete's move to the Scandinavian country has signed and sealed

Sources inside Aalborg BK have, according to the publications, also confirmed that the club was on the verge of signing an unnamed South African player - who has 50 caps for his country.

Orlando Pirates are hoping that their inspirational captain, Lucky Lekgwathi, will extend his contract with the team.

Lekgwathi's contract expires at the end of the month and has been reportedly pursued by Moroka Swallows and SuperSport United, but the 'Buccaneers' want to hold on to him.

Orlando Pirates start their pre-season training today, but club captain Lucky Lekgwathi is still uncertain of his future with the Buccaneers.

Lekgwathi says there are clubs that have shown interest in his services, but he has decided to wait for the meeting with chairman Irvin Khoza, who is currently in Germany at the Fifa 2006 World Cup.
Sir Beast

Mara whats this nonsense of PSL teams waiting for players contracts to come to an end before renewing them, and cry foul when the players leave because this send a signal that the team does not want you!!!.

Why cant they be professional and if they want a player for more seasons they can renew the contract way before it comes to an end. If Lekgwathi leaves there will big noise from peirats but it will be their lack of professionalism.

Benedict Vilakazi is leaving Orlando Pirates.

The most cultured Bucs midfielder has in fact been given the green light to pursue his career overseas.

The star player, whose career has been stymied by off the field issues and a serious injury at the beginning of the year, has been given permission by club chairperson Irvin Khoza to go abroad.

Vilakazi's manager Mike Makaab confirmed that "Tso" will certainly be lost to South African soccer when the new season kicks off at the beginning of August.

"Benedict has served local football with aplomb and it is about time that he ventures into the unknown and make a name for himself," said Makaab.

"I am glad that Irvin gave his blessings for Benedict to further his career abroad, especially after his sterling performances at Pirates and Bafana Bafana were blighted by off the field issues in the past year. One thing, though, he still needs to be physically fit before his next move."

With teams from Turkey, Russia and France knocking on the door trying to snap the 24-year-old midfielder, Makaab said the latter was the ideal place for Vilakazi.

"I prefer France because of the number of African players who are doing duty there. Most of them are now world-class players."

The departure of Vilakazi will leave a big void in the midfield at Pirates. With Edelbert Dinha and Sailor Tshabalala having quit the Soweto giants for Mvela Golden League big spenders AK FC, Pirates will definitely miss the diminutive midfielder.

"Benedict is a special player whose contribution has been great for the team," said Pirates spokesperson Mickey Modisane.

"So far there is no indication on his departure. Should there be anything to that effect, the chairperson will be able to inform us on the matter."

Orlando Pirates have signed Sudanese international striker Haytham Tambal from Al Hilal according to the Pirates website.

Hilal’s deputy chief executive said a number of other clubs were interested in the striker, Fenerbahce of Turkey, Al Ahly of Egypt and Ahli of Jedda, Saudi Arabia.

“We advised the boy to take the Pirates offer because from next month, the world football focus will be on South Africa as hosts of the 2010 World Cup,” he told the Pirates website.

Bucs official Floyd Mbele told the clubs website: “We are obviously very happy to have signed a striker of Tambal’s calibre. We have been following his progress with keen interest,” he said.

“We have been working at solving our goalscoring problems, especially with a new coach [Milutin Sredojevic] coming in.”

by just looking at the clubs that were chasing him, he looks like a good addition to the team. only his performance during the Telkom and Vodacom cups will tell us how good or bad he is.

Orlando Pirates has finally ended months of speculation by signing Lehlohonolo Seema from Bloemfontein Celtic.

The Lesotho international started training with Orlando Pirates yesterday and revealed that he has signed a two-year deal with the Buccaneers.

Although he did not want to talk much, he sounded happy with his move.

Meanwhile, midfielder Peter Rabolele and striker Aubin Takutchie have both signed one-year contracts with Manning Rangers.

This was confirmed by their manager Steve Kapeluschnick, who surprisingly did not want to comment on Seema’s signing for Pirates, saying he is still waiting for the Buccaneers’ chairman Irvin Khoza to return from Germany.
