Opinion: Pirates need a great goalkeeper, not a good goalkeeper.

I am not surprised that some players are struggling to adjust to life at the Sea Robbers because Orlando Pirates is a big team and there is too much pressure there. 

As a goalkeeper, it’s not always easy to handle that pressure. 

There is no consistency. For example take someone like Richard Ofori, today, he plays well and then tomorrow, he makes a mistake. So, there is no consistency. 

Pirates need a great goalkeeper, not a good goalkeeper. 

Another concern has been the performances of defender Thulani Hlatshwayo.

That’s another downfall of Pirates. That’s the position that has been making Pirates struggle. He is not the Tyson Hlatshwayo that we know. 

He is not playing like how he was playing in the national team, so that has been a big worry. 

It’s an area that they need to work on so that they can improve going forward.

Recently, Thembinkosi Lorch also spoke about how the team is playing as individuals. 

It’s difficult when those things happen. If you want to play as an individual and you expect personal glory, then it’s a problem. Pirates are a big team and once you do well as a team, then you can win everything. 

But if you have players who want to shine as individuals, then it’s going to affect the team badly.
