The 2017 decider between SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday ended up being a 4-1 thrashing of the Bucs‚ to the dismay of its legions of fans.

Only laughter can bring an end to tears‚ so here is a selection of comments we hope can bring a smile this morning:

Pirates came to Durban 4 -1 reason - to see the sea

What! Me ? Nooo friends I never said I was a Pirates fan‚ I said I'm a Pirates of the Caribbean fan

Do not throw away the Exs clothes‚ donate them to us. See graphic for drop off zone. #MyExstaughtme

Some fans comments were more despairing than others: Consulting top legal minds regarding performance of @Orlando_Pirates‚ we feel very strong that the matter should go 2 the Con Court‚ hai man

Every Orlando Pirates fan went through one or two of these emotions since last night #NedbankCupFinal
