DSCF4017-001Whilst I no longer broadcast sport as much as before I still take a very keen interest in what is happening.

You will be able to find my thoughts on myriad issues in sport here on a regular basis with both written & video blogs.

And, from time to time, they may just move away from the realm of sport and delve into other areas of society.

I hope you enjoy reading and viewing the following blogs …. no matter the topic!

David Warner is the key for Australia

Date: November 4, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

Australia is set to face Test cricket’s best current day fast bowling arsenal. South Africa boasts a depth in its pace attack that is presently unmatched. It is led by a man who could well end his career as the greatest quick of all time. Dale Steyn has terrorised batsmen around the world over the […]

Mitch Marsh needs to go

Date: October 28, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

Mitch Marsh’s position is currently the most problematic in the Australia team. All the other contenders for a place in the top-six have made a case to be considered. David Warner and Steve Smith are the two definites who demand selection. Even still, they have shown form in the current round of Sheffield Shield fixtures […]

Date: October 21, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

Two weeks from today Australia will embark on what shapes as a very tough summer of Test cricket. South Africa has arrived in the country on the back of a 5-nil sweep of Australia in the recent ODI series. The Proteas, somewhat bizarrely, are ranked number five in the world. They are a better side […]

The Phillip Hughes inquest became something it shouldn’t have

Date: October 15, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

Sadly, the Phillip Hughes coronial inquest has become something it was never meant to be. It should have been simply about safety levels in cricket. Unfortunately, it descended into an inquest about Phillip Hughes. As a result, there has been angst, anger and unnecessary comments aired. Hughes’ death resulted from a freak accident. That was […]

Jobe, about the Brownlow …

Date: October 14, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

Hawthorn’s Sam Mitchell is in the news at present. He will back in the headlines again next month. His footballing life is about to go through a massive change with a proposed move to West Coast and the likely being awarded a Brownlow Medal.

Maxwell, not Head, should have been selected for South Africa

Date: October 8, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

A month ago Glenn Maxwell scored 145no off 65 balls in a T20 match against Sri Lanka. That innings at Pallekele has been surpassed by only one Australian player – Aaron Finch’s 156 versus England at Southampton in August 2013. In the second and final T20 last month against Sri Lanka at Colombo, Maxwell made […]

It’s the white collar Swans versus the blue collar Bulldogs for AFL’s grandest prize

Date: October 1, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

In 2005, the Sydney Swans ended the longest premiership drought in the history of the VFL/AFL. Its four-point win over West Coast brought to a close a 72-year run without a flag. On Saturday, the Western Bulldogs will be hoping to snap the longest current premiership drought of the existing 18 clubs. Footscray’s only triumph […]

The Western Bulldogs have been the story of the year

Date: September 23, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

The Western Bulldogs are one win from a grand final berth, their first since 1961. To reach the season’s finale they must beat a side that has never played in a grand final. Much has been written about the quantum leap in performance this season by Greater Western Sydney, the most recent club to enter […]

Anthony Morabito shows again that will and skill is not always enough

Date: September 9, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

It is often said that sport is a microcosm of life and life, as we know, is not always fair. Never has that tenet been given greater voice than in the case of Anthony Morabito this week. After years of being cruelled by injury he was told by Fremantle that his services were no longer […]

Soak it up Australia, arguably greatest fast bowler of all time is coming down under

Date: September 2, 2016 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell

Modern day cricket is more of a batsman’s game than ever before. Shortened boundaries, massive bats and regularly benign pitches have seen batting averages greatly boosted in recent times. In the 139-year history of Test cricket only 43 batsmen have played over 20 innings and averaged more than 50. Twenty of those – or 46.5 […]
