    MARK Rudan has compared Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold’s critique of Adelaide United to the witty dialogue of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho. And he reckons there should be more of it.

    WEST INDIES legend Curtly Ambrose has revealed he threatened to “knock out” Steve Waugh during their famous mid-pitch stoush 20 years ago.

    IT is certainly a unique clash of the tennis generations. Aussie young gun Nick Kyrgios is getting ready to face Roger Federer for the first time ever.

    JOCKEY Danny Nikolic is under investigation for financing a betting account held in his girlfriend’s name that put massive sums on horses to lose.

    THE “Fight of the Century” did not live up to the hype, and Manny Pacquiao’s injury may have played a part. Floyd Mayweather has a solution.

    The MCG: A Stadium Reborn

    "The MCG: A Stadium Reborn" front coverFollowing the successful completion of the MCG redevelopment of the Northern Stands, the MCC has commissioned a 192-page photo essay ‘coffee table’ style book as an official record of the project.

    The Melbourne Cricket Ground: A Stadium Reborn’ is a magnificent book authored by Stuart Sykes which shows the ground undergoing significant changes during the three-and-a-half year project.

    The book acknowledges the unique history of the MCG, celebrates the stadium’s rebirth as Australia’s premier venue for the 21st century - a process seen through the eyes of several key figures on and off the sporting field - and sets the MCG in the context of contemporary stadium architecture.

    Noted photographer, John Gollings, provides stunning photography of the ground while the MCG’s Icon partner, Herald and Weekly Times, have provided valuable assistance towards the completion of this book.

    As well as a record of the changes taking place at the ground, the book takes in the AFL Grand Finals staged during the redevelopment, the annual Boxing Day Tests, Anzac Day matches and the Commonwealth Games.

    It also showcases some of the events staged soon after the completion of the redevelopment, such as the 2006 Commonwealth Games, the 2006 Boxing Day Test Match and the Socceroos v Greece match prior to the 2006 World Cup.

    MCC members have the opportunity to purchase the book from the club for a discounted rate of $60 inclusive of GST. The book will be available for pick up at the ground or can be posted to members at an additional cost.
