@Orlando_Pirates-All four Orlando Pirates goalkeepers should be ashamed of themselves?

Orlando Pirates goalkeepers should be ashamed of themselves with the way they conceded goals. You wonder if the problem is goalkeeper trainer or is the matter of saying Orlando Pirates goalkeepers are all not deserving of wearing that black and white jersey.

1. Felippe Ovono-When Orlando Pirates signed this guy I was one of the person that applauded Irvin Khoza for his decision to bring the guy at Orlando Pirates but he never live up to his expectations but you could tell he was a good goalkeeper. Eric Tinkler gave Felippe Ovono a chance against Bidvest Wits but he couldn't grab it with both hands making a blunder that costed Orlando Pirates a win but some of us do understand that such mistakes do happen in football. Ertugral Muhsin gave the guy another chance yes he made some good saves and again you see that the guy is talented but again the two errors that he made against Golden Arrows and Bidvest Wits were unforgivable and many people thought he was the worst goalkeeper at Orlando Pirates. Since then he never played a game at Orlando Pirates.

2.Brighton Mhlongo-A very good promising golkeeper, he is so vocal, brave and entertaining same as the late Senzo Meyiwa or Moneeb Josephs. At times any coach or team can rely on him but his handling of the ball is very bad. when Fellipe Ovono made such mistakes many were calling Mhlongo's name to come and rescue Orlando Pirates. Those were the same fans that were questioning Ertugral Muhsin's decision for benching Mhlongo. He got his chance as usually conceded soft goals I'm not sure if its a world record or what but conceding six goals in less than 40 minutes for sure that have a place in record books. Orlando Pirates kept on believing in him but he never stops conceding.

3.Jackson Mabokgwane-Orlando Pirates caretaker coach opted to give Jackson Mabokgwane a chance and again the problem is the same ball handling. against Chippa United I think he made the difference in fact Orlando Pirates won because of his individual brilliance but there was a sign that he can also commit the blunders that were made by Ovono and Mhlongo I remember a ball that didn't have too much but he failed to handle it properly luckily goal post came to rescue him. Against Highlands Park in the dying minutes Jackson Mabokgwane conceded a goal from Goalkeeper then you must know that once a goalkeeper scores a goal against a big team like Orlando Pirates there's a problem in paradise. Against Bloemfontein Celtics Jackson Mabokgwane gave them early christmas by allowing a ball to go straight to the net and you ask yourself what was he thinking?

4.Siyabonga Mpontshane-I can't say much about this guy hence I don't know why he was signed in the first place.
Yes 2016 was a horrific year for Orlando Pirates but goalkeepers were very poor and the goalkeeper trainer also need to take a blame as well.

  1. To say Orlando Pirates doesn't have goalkeepers won't be an insult indeed there are no goalkeepers in that team....
