Imagine a team line up something like this: (4-1-3-2) Josephs - Jele, Mahamutsa, Lekgwathi, Cloete - Jali - Mabalane, Modise, Klate - Mbuyane, Otorogu Maybe Krol should stop using 2 defensive midfielders, then he could attack with one extra player.
Imagine a team line up something like this: (4-1-3-2) Josephs - Jele, Mahamutsa, Lekgwathi, Cloete - Jali - Mabalane, Modise, Klate - Mbuyane, Otorogu Good analysis, Pirates can only be effective when playing with a big central striker wether evn if he is ineffective.
But the likes of Schalkwyk, Mashego, Mark Mayambela and other talented players must know Krol is the man in charge and he is managing one of the biggest squads in the Premiership.
His primary task is to get results, and he is going to pick players he can trust to do the job he asks of them.
Just replace the damn Jujuman Mbuyane he is not effective.
@Elija good line up however dont undermine the role of the two holding midfielders, they are the reason why we win games, why our defense is hardly threatened.
if anyone here is a qualified coach then I want to hear his views...
In Pirates’ modern-era history, Krol has stayed longer than any other, including Kosta Papic.
So far this season, Mbuyane, Andile Jali, Ezenwa Otorogu, Klate, Lucky Lekgwathi, Isaac Chansa and Moeneeb Josephs have been Krol’s key warriors.
It’s looking good, and full credit must go to Khoza for patiently allowing the coach and players to work together towards building a team capable of winning silverware again.
Krol always tells me that I create more options for others with my runs.” Read the full interview, and you will realise that Mbuyane is a better player than when he arrived at Pirates because he has learnt from his coaches.
Those who don’t get as much game-time should perhaps ask what they are learning. Devastating for Bloemfontein Celtic last season but up against Daine Klate or Dikgang Mabalane for a place at Pirates, he has had to wait his turn.
