Who looks most like Gus?
Posted by Vietnam Swans on August 10, 2012
This weekend, the mercurial, the magnificent, the man who needs no surname, Gus, returns to the Swannies. He has finished stints with both the Singapore Wombats and the Jakarta Bintangs and now returns home.
Chief sporting columnist for the Swannies’ website, Dave O’Shea, wrote of the Great Gus in his Champs Preview:
“Gus made his comeback match for the Saigon Reds last week and kicked a bag of six (sic) goals. After the match, he said that he would have kicked 10 but he didn’t want to disappoint the fans of the Saigon White team.“
The Skipper, Dukes, in his notes to members of the touring squad, wrote, “…speaking of Asian footy relics, Gus has resurrected himself and dusted his Swannies guernsey off and is back again. Gus is where the saying, ‘You can leave the country but can’t leave the club’ comes from. Fresh off a bag of seven (sic) on the weekend, he will be dangerous up forward.”
Six or seven? Does it matter? All that matters is that his name is Gus.
And Dave O’Shea believes that, as well as fans, he has plenty of look-a-likes. Dave writes:
“Gus had his first training session for the Swannies for a long time on the weekend and many of the new players were confused as to who he was. Was it the famous Aussie singer Paul Kelly? Was it the Irish comedian, Jimeoin? Some thought it was another comedian, Carl Barron? Somebody even mentioned Mr Burns from The Simpsons.
