London Lite Friday, 10 July 2009 19 Wonderwall night (even if sound fails Oasis again) Soccer ladies go weak at knees Women who play football are more likely to suffer a knee injury than men, according to scientists. Researchers say women use their knees more when kicking a ball, while men use the thighs and hips, which generate more power. Porsche drivers more manly SPoRTS cars really do make men feel more macho, says a study. Canadian scientists have found that driving an 80,000 Porsche increased mens testosterone levels, and taking a clapped-out banger for a spin did the reverse. Oasis make an unlikely stadium act. Not for them the usual palaver of exploding elephants, Michael Jackson lookalikes or literal and metaphorical fireworks. instead, aside from some giant video screens, they treated the first of their three Wembley stadium nights as if it were their local pub. Noel Gallagher put his head down and played, while younger brother Liam put his hands behind his back and sang. For Oasis, its all music and no frippery. its also a way of ensuring their survival. Just as The Rolling stones have spent 40 years attempting to emulate their golden period, Oasis have spent the last 14 trying to eclipse masterpiece (Whats The story) Morning Glory? The stones filled the void by reinventing themselves as a reliable stadium act and these days Oasis play Wembley more often than the Gallaghers beloved Manchester City. Unusually, Liam was in a lighter mood than Noel last night. The sweary singer dedicated Cigarettes and alcohol to custom- ers of his new designer clothing range Pretty Green (how ironic that someone who seems not to have changed his clothes for a decade should emerge as the Mancunian Brno), calling the crowd soft southerners before deciding youre the b*****ks. although Noel sang the won- drous The Masterplan as if he knew it was the great, lost Oasis song and dedicated songbird to the missus, sara MacDonald, he was clearly frustrated by the sound failing -- as it had at Manchesters Heaton Park last month -- during Wonderwall. He was quick to note that, nobody is getting their money back, not one f**king one of you to a not entirely rapturous response. Later, he introduced a heartstrings- tugging singalong through Dont Look Back in anger as another joke you wont get. He was right there. it must be the way Britains grumpiest national treasure tells em.
