Default Is this an Onion article?: "Mushfiqur eyes revenge against Afghanistan"

I know this is being mentioned in mushfiqur thread but this deserves its own thread. What is going on? I am not sure if this is Mushfiques fault or Isam's fault.

Have a read:

Mushfiqur eyes revenge against Afghanistan

Quote:
"They [Afghanistan] will also be under pressure," Mushfiqur said. "They would like to do something in such a big event. But we want to take revenge after being beaten in the Asia Cup. Our first target is to cross the first round, but more importantly, we are concentrating on the first game against Afghanistan. We have two matches after that against Nepal and Hong Kong.

"We have found out more information about them [Afghanistan] lately. We have played against them, which helped in that regard. They might know enough about us but Shakib [Al Hasan], Mashrafe [Mortaza] and Tamim [Iqbal] didn't play the Asia Cup match against them. They must have seen these players on TV, but it is a different ball-game when they play against them."
How good of a captain can you be on field if your interviews are like this? Baba Mushfique, please talk less, and stop embarrassing yourself. What happens if you lose to Afghan again?

This is just to get our competitive juices flowing i believe. After losing to our arch rivals Afghanistan We might just focus on taking revenge against the other formidable foes like Namibia, Uganda, Cook Islands, Iceland etc etc later in the intercontinental cup.

Go Mushy!

PNG, don't forget PNG. Also China, when they're ready. Then maybe USA and Canada as well.

Mushfique should not be allowed to hold press conferences or interviews any longer. Muzzle him for good.

I won't consider it as an upset if Afghanistan ends up beating us. They have beaten us in the past.

That's being too harsh in him.

He is the best batsman Bangladesh has ever produced and has served us well in that capacity.

That he is a poor captain is as much the BCB and Coach's fault as his.

Let's not get too overboard.

I love him as a batsman. I don't have any issue against him personally. His hard working nature is highly appreciated.

But we are talking here about the captain Mushfiq, not the person or batsman Mushfiq. To me he is holding losing mentality as a captain. Mushfiq doesn't have any thing to offer to the team as a captain.

Well if it works for him and the team then let just support the team instead trowing missiles on every sentences what they say. They need a boosted support from fans. I am okay with what he is talking, don't wanna see everything in negatve way.

As an auditor you should know exactly what stats are used for. Ignore his early years when he was sent in to sink and swim and floundered just like his compatriots then.

I DO say so.

If you have an opinion to the contrary - pray, sir, who is the best batsmen today? I'm sure some of the new guys would turn out to be better but they have not survived the test of time.

Who's your man?
