    I've been criticised in the past for not giving your average Aussie supporter enough credit for being objective or not knowing Yerasfrom Yerelbow (didn't he used to play for Leeds?), so this time I took the statement as gospel.

    Apologies if I`ve been contradictory in the past, but it was just pretty lame reading 10 posts in a row moaning about something we all know is crap.

    No, that was Gillespie.

    His barber gave him one of those fashionable 'greasy gyppo' cuts and those nasty Barmy Army people gave the poor bloke a hard time, made him cry and basically stopped him performing. They wouldn't so much as buy a peg, let alone his 'lucky heather'. Then, to add insult to injury, after Gillespie had been wheeled off to the Bounce-a-Wee home for worn-out bowlers, they turned their foul attention on Shaun Tait - and for what stupid reason? Because he's crap.

    How unfair is that?

    No apology necessary. What do you want - sheep jokes?

    L@L?
    Against West Indies and South Africa he was slightly better than he had been previously, nothing more. Still, South Africa dealt with him without many problems about half the time.

    Hayden had far more than 4 poor Tests.

    Even at The WACA, those 2 ("great" and "short") do not go together.

    Yeah - you said "you've dropped your only match-winner".
    I was referring to Gillespie, as he's the only match-winner Australia have dropped recently.

    Really? Far as I can see there's no such thing as "cricketer of the decade" and quite rightly, it'd be an utterly futile award.
    Incidentally - in the previous decade, an Englishman (Alec Stewart) finished top-scorer ahead of an Australian (Mark Waugh).
    Being a Haydenesque flat-track bully is nothing to be proud of.
