  1. Bumble: "I wonder what the bowlers think of the batting efforts" I fear that if their precise feelings were broadcast, the program would be taken off air.
  2. Spineless, clueless shambles. At least another hit and giggle white ball tournament will solve all the problems though.
  3. The average age in the skateboarding final this morning was 17 which suggests it's very much a younger persons sport, in terms of the top level competition at least.
  4. Yep. They'll bring him in in about 2 Tests time when he's gone a month without any cricket.
  5. If we lose this series then go and get thumped in Australia then Root is done as captain, he'll probably jump before he's pushed.
  6. They absolutely shit their pants about the balance of the side whenever Stokes is missing. Not playing a spinner at the height of summer is mind-boggling.
  7. Gatland has done what he usually does when under pressure and reverted to the Welsh lads that he knows.
  8. Agreed. And, if we're being completely honest, the chances of all 4 of Bell, Britton, Conway and Janneh becoming established first teamers for us are probably very small. However if we can get them a taste of this level and the opportunities to test themselves a bit lower down the pyramid, the ones that don't quite make it here can still go on to have good careers elsewhere.
  9. Don't forget that it was Bell who was getting the opportunities last season until he got injured, then Conway stepped in for him.
  10. The low scores are because of the pitches.
  11. They sell them, or at least they did the last time I was there, at Cardiff's ground.
  12. That Italian lad who won the 100m earlier - 27 years old, only took up the event a couple of years ago and hadn’t broken 10 seconds before May. Nothing to see here.....
  13. The landing wasn't on his head or neck. Murray has done him a favour by managing to break his fall before he landed.
  14. Now pulled out of the 200m with a hamstring injury.
  15. Rassie Erasmus appears to be having some sort of breakdown https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/58012090
  16. Yes, that bit did leap off the page somewhat.
  17. The replies to that tweet are noticeably split into 2 categories - Ipswich fans liking it and saying how good it is to have someone who is visible and communicative (oh boy are they in for a shock when things start going wrong), and City and Watford fans cringing at him and telling them they don't know what they're letting themselves in for.
  18. I watched a bit of tonight's game, listening to KP on commentary it's not hard to see how his team mates ******* hated him. Absolutely unbearable.
  19. If you didn't know any better, you'd genuinely think he was the manager on seeing that. A penny for Paul Cook's thoughts...
