Aussies are not hairy enough, not rude enough, not angry enough and are lacking in the mass anal bunting stakes? http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/blog/2009/jul/24/ashes-australia-swearing-hairiness
“So to Dirk Wellham, state captain, Test centurion (and moustache sporter), turned schoolteacher and thinker. Writing of Allan Border’s captaincy technique a few years ago, Wellham described the central place the word “fucking” played in forging a formidable Aussie team, observing: “[The] reliance on strong, decisive, male, independent players is symbolic of ‘fucking’, and the absence of collective psychology. Paradoxically, fucking can also be a group, sharing arrangement, of mateship.”
To be honest, I am not quite sure what Dirk is driving at here, but it seems to me his advice to Ponting would be: use more expletives and cut out the occasional net practice in favour of an orgy. Over to you, Punter.”

The Manchester City revolution continues http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/teams/m/man_city/8149488.stm I hope one of their prima donnas gets in a hissy fit because there are too many high profile strikers to go around now: Tevez, Adebayor, Santa Cruz, Robinho and that doesn’t count the lesser strikers – Bellamy, for one.
