A bad day for Australian Sport

Yesterday was bad for Sport in this country.

The Australian cricket team was disgraceful. Ever since the last Ashes tour we simply have meekly caved in when pressure has been applied. It has been the cast thus far this summer. There is no fight in the team.

Get rid of most of the batsmen and replace them with batsman who can fight. Oh for a modern day Ian Redpath.  Greg Chappell scored his best ton at Lords in 1972 on a pitch doing things together with the ball swinging all match.

In Football we drew with Thailand a very weak nation. We could very well miss out on going to Russia for the world cup. Ange needs to have a good think about the Left back position and whether Rogic does not have the work rate or defensive capabilities for the midfield.

Why oh why when we have three speedsters up front did we not play the flanks? Why are we giving away silly goals.
In the end we should and could have won by 5 or 6 goals but we did not.

Lots of work for Ange to do if he can
