Arthur is a traitor!

It even rolls off your tongue easily. Mickey Aurthur is apparently open to coaching England if they ever ask, like they almost did before Andy Flower was appointed. Says Mickey,

"I think Andy Flower will be there for a long time, but England's a temptation for my family and me to explore. There's such history and culture in England with cricket, and that really fascinates me."

It doesn't even have to be the national team, it could be some miserable county team as well. What has gotten into you Mickey? Is Graeme not paying you enough attention now that he has a girlfriend? And the only history that England has with cricket is that they invented it, forced other people to play it and then regretted the move because every other nation got better than them.

Seriously, is it every coaches dream to drag teams out of their slumps and put them on top? After which the team loses its appeal? Well this can't be done with England. Winning the Ashes against a limp Australian team does not count for anything, as the ODI's are proving to us. If you want to coach anybody coach Australia. They have great training strategies, talented players, an extensive selection process..and they still lose! Now that's a challenge!

There is something suspicious about this article though. I found it on the Cricket Australia website. I checked all the Proteas related websites after and could not find a single thing. Hmm, it could be some evil doing on Australia's part to turn the Saffers against their coach. Upon which they will hire him in hopes of regaining their number one spot.

Message to Australia: He kind of has..you know..players that deliver? It's called the magic of actually playing cricket.

It sounds like he has his eyes set on England for some strange matter. It is kind of strange how it is only coming from the Australian press, though.

Unfortunately, The same news is coming from the English Press too : http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cricket/england/8241024.stm

Traitor!! Traitor!!
I'll kick him out of England and back to SA if he comes here! Mind it Mickey!

Looks like SA will be the last to find out. If he wants to leave, then by all means he should.

I just find it strange that he is choosing to go now when SA is at their best. Unless he thinks SA will faulter and he wants to get out before he gets blaimed. (Just a thought)

Well Mickey probably feels bored with SA after so many years and wants to sell out plans....

But I doubt whether he'll move....

The Cricket Corollary said...

Strange, it still hasn't reached our news sites.


Purna said...

Bon, can we use our stalking skills to find out what his real deal is? I don't think he meant to move right now, probably just a future plan. But why mention it? Also, why isn't it being featured in SA sites? Are they trying to hide something?

MJ, make sure you kick him hard..so he really feels it!

Chris, sell out plans did you say? Is John Buchanan his idol then?

The Cricket Corollary said...

Oh, no. Is this true? That ba$t@rd!


Purna said...

I don't know Bella. Maybe some future plans of his. Whatever it is Arthur better sleep with one eye open!
