Afternoon Links

Sports News - January 26, 2009

So as I wait for tomorrow to arrive (Arsenal-Chelsea? Real Madird-Barcelona? Oh my!) I thought I'd share a couple of links with you guys to move your day along. Here we go...

**Jimmy Bullard has a sit down with his teammates**

After scoring a late equalizer for [Hull during their match at Manchester City this morning, you wouldn't have thought that midfielder Jimmy Bullard would have felt the need to have a sit down meeting with his teammates](http://soccernet.espn.go.com/report?id=270034&cc=5901).

But that's exactly what Bullard did, arranging his fellow Hull players in a circle and pointing to each of them in turn after slotting his penalty kick home.

Why, you ask? Well, Bullard was poking a little fun at his always tan, notoriously crazy manager Phil Brown. In his team's last game at Man City, Brown ([who for some reason always wears a silly looking headset on the sideline](http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/02ZiaIn7kK8iX/610x.jpg)) decided to [berate his entire squad on the field (instead of the locker room...) at halftime](http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/match_of_the_day/7800708.stm).

The very-public team talk was widely pointed to as the start of Hull's tremendous decline last year. We'll have to wait and see what effect Bullard's speech has on the team.... **Davies rehab going "fantastic"**

U.S. National Team striker Charlie Davies - who suffered severe injuries in a fatal car crash on October 13th -- is said to be [making 'fantastic' progress in his rehabilitation efforts](http://www.fcsochaux.fr/en/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1316&Itemid=106).

Davies is being treated by head U.S. National Team trainer James Hashimoto in Delaware, where he has temporarily moved. Fellow U.S. National Team player Oguchi Onyewu, who is recovering from a knee injury, has joined Davies in rehab in Delaware.
