    Vaughan: Fredalo ruined the world cup

    I don't know why, but Vaughan has given another interview about how the 'Fredalo' incident ruined the world cup.

    http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/engla...ry/296939.html

    What's the point in him giving these interviews? Surely it's better to put it in the past now and look forwards.

    What an idiot. To hang a teammate out to dry like that is unacceptable not to mention he's in total denial if he thinks Flintoff's incident had any effect on England's overall position in the WC. Perhaps he'd be better off looking at why he was there in the first place and how he got selected when he's clearly a rubbish one-day player. It's dire players like him that were the reason England didn't do well at the World Cup, full stop. I've lost quite abit of respect for him with this tbh. What a knob.

    Agreed. Vaughan's gone down a bit in my estimations.

    Interesting man-management by Vaughan. I wasn't expecting a return to Boycott's days of a senior player loathing the captain, but we appear to be heading there.

    Well it seems to have been the case of late, certainly. Why and since when I'm less than sure.

    Yea, you should never hang out your team mate like that. Especially considering he's no Viv Richards in ODIs.....

    That's not how it works these days, really. Cricketers are together so much now that if parts of a team don't get on something has to give.

    Naturally, with Flintoff out for the foreseeable future it's not an immediate problem, but as with his comments about being shut-out during The Ashes... I just don't see what he gains by saying this. Think it, fine, write about it in your book in 4 or 5 years' time, fine, but FFS don't go shouting off about it.

    Maybe he's trying to out-Graeme Smith Graeme Smith? (Honesty)

    All I can hope is that he's thinking by saying this now there's not going to be stuff bubbling under and that he and Flintoff can clear the air.

    And that's the biggest thing. It really does just strike me as being yet more clutching at straws, trying to find ways around the fact that the players were simply not good enough. I had a good thrashing-out in the GMCG thread of all the nonsense that was said during The Ashes about why things went wrong. This just strikes me as something else.

    Pretty optimistic afaics. Still, England's net sessions should be rather lively once Fred's back in action.
