Brett Studman and his short shorts

-

In Saturday night’s 5-2 thumping of Bankstown City Lions, Brett Studman and his Sydney Olympic teammates leapfrogged Sutherland Sharks and Sydney United to sit atop the NSW Premier League ladder.

Listen to Matt Greenlaw on The Football Sack podcast.

After the match The Football Sack caught up with Brett in a candid interview about the game, the length of his shorts, and Belmore Sports Ground.

TFS: Happy with the 5-2 result mate?

Brett: Yeah of course man, a win’s a win and especially coming back here after such a while. We’ve got a lot of boys from this team [Bankstown] that used to play here so it’s good to get the win yeah absolutely.

TFS: And your individual performance?

Brett: To be fair I didn’t do a whole lot in the first half – pretty sure I touched the ball about three times in the first half.





TFS: We did actually catch one of those times on camera.

Brett: Really? Wow, you must have been attentive if you caught that – I’m pretty sure I did nothing when I had it but the second half was a bit busier. To me I’d rather sit back there and do absolutely nothing and win but I guess I did alright. To be fair I could have just said that – would have saved us a bit of time but that’s alright.

TFS: Are you happy with the length of your shorts?

Brett: They are short aren’t they?! Ordinarily I do Veet the legs, but they’re hairy at the moment. I’m trying to add a bit of man to my frame – I was copping a bit of stick out there about it.

TFS: I think that was from your own fans as well?

Brett: Well they’re short! Yeah I know, I’m absolutely not responsible for them at all! They’re pulled down, I’ve got skins on underneath so I’ve pulled them down as far as they go.

TFS: All the other players shorts seem to be knee length…

Brett: Not responsible.

TFS: Are you looking forward to getting back to Belmore Sports Ground for the string of home games?

Brett: It would be nice to play there, I mean it’s five minutes down the road from my house it’d be perfect. Saying that that stadium’s looking a bit under construction at the moment so I don’t know the chances of that actually happening.

TFS: Do you think it’ll be ready?

Brett: I don’t think so to be honest. Odds are looking a bit slim. Every time I go there they [construction workers] seem to be sitting around having a cigarette. Maybe it’s just when I’m there that they’re doing that…

TFS: You do realise we’re recording this right now?

Brett: Absolutely, I have a tendency to be honest… What is this for again?
