Ndoro, Mhlongo and Qalinge (NMQ) vs  Castro,  Billiat and Dolly (CBD) has fallen.
Congrats to Orlando Pirates for their win. The character demostrated by the Buccaneer during today's match is that of Champions. Nothing fancy, Pirates just stuck to their guns. From the minute go, Sundowns looked the part and had Pirates on the back foot and chasing shadows, Castro and Billiat combined well to cause menace to Pirates and it was all for no good. Meaningless!

The middlefield was winning every battle there is but no end results.

For the entire 120 minutes Mohlongo stood his ground and became a shot stopper his is supposed to be, he kept Pirates in the game. Gymah was making most of the crucial tackles and interceptions. The red card was well deserved for the reckless tackles he was carrying out. Matlaba was awful, totally out of the game. Gcaba and the other defenders stepped it up as soon as Pirates played with 10 men. As for Sundowns players they all deserve zero ratings for their efforts, no agility, no sense of urgency, poor decision making by our forwards, unable to be clinical, poor crosses into the eighteen yard area especially by the leftback.

Overall it was Pirates who were more dangerous whenever they came out of the bus parking mode and attacked. Their defense and middle-field put an extra shift at the back and made things really difficult for our attackers. I really wanted Pirates to be trophyless at the expense of Mamelodi Sundowns' quest for the treble, but I have to admit Sundowns is supported by some fans who feel pity for other team and I m not for it, I m totally against it. I dont like Pirates, nor Polokwane City, Ajax, Chiefs, and so forth. All teams are rivals, Mamelodi Sundowns must always win against any team that they play against.

The boat has been rocked by this result and I hope for the unit to recover as soon as possible, there is no time for tears and tissues.

Ka bo yellow!!!! Q4 and the league are Downs last hope!!!!
