Opinion - Orlando Pirates picking up form may be good news in the race to sign Thabo Nodada?

Just a few weeks ago it seemed that Orlando Pirates instead of fighting for titles and finishing in the top half of the DSTV Premiership this season

They were rather going to settle for none less than a top eight finish as they were in very terrible form having just lost the club's first team head coach in Josef Zinnbauer

What made matters even worse was that in the dressing room Orlando Pirates seemed to be all over the place as it was clear from the outside looking in that the players were lacking in motivation but also as well in unity and chemistry

That was further justified by a clip of an interview that was released in which Thembinkosi Lorch basically criticized his teammates on live television referencing the point that there is no unity amongst the club's first team players

But then again football is a small world and is also one of the if not the most unpredictable sport in the world and shortly afterwards

The club turned around what was a dismal run of form and picked up two wins from two after claiming crucial victories against Chippa United as well as Moroka Swallows

The most damaging aspect perhaps about Orlando Pirates being in such poor form and lacking a certain amount direction was that the club were going to struggle to attract players come the january transfer window

Because before the end of the now previous transfer window there were a couple of players Orlando Pirates were looking at that they couldn't eventually sign

And one of them was Cape Town City star Thabo Nodada who during the last stages of the transfer window was very much heavily linked with a move to Orlando Pirates and he himself revealed he would not have had a problem joining the club

And when Orlando Pirates were in extremely poor form it seemed unlikely that come the january transfer window the club were going to still attract a big name player like Thabo Nodada

Since the Bucs now look back on track in the DSTV Premiership and appear to be playing like a team again it now seems that they may after all be successful in signing Thabo Nodada come the january transfer window if they are still interested
