  1. Wouldn't mind seeing a few younger players chucked into the squad, we are going be needing them soon enough, especially in the bowling department. Porter of Essex looks okay, averages 26 odd I think in red ball too! Saying that for the batting I think it would be better for the county experienced players, its the rash thinking of modern bit hitters that causes test problems, something I would be more confident of Malan or Stoneman not being like.
  2. Bit of a redundant about them not playing in the prem right now when you think about who our leading striker is......
  3. Got to agree here, but I always tend to enjoy a trip to Oakwell, especially the few in the championship relegation scrap season!
  4. I'm backing him to make a fantastic manager one day. You look at who he played under he has learnt from all of the best and there have been numerous clips where he talks about passages of games etc and just talks so well about it all.
  5. I don't believe amartey at centre back would be the worse thing in this game. I wouldn't trust him in a Prem game due to play style but the way athleticos play it could work as he always reads the game quite well and won't have to deal too much aerially. Saying that I imagine Wes will be loaded up with every drug possible to get him out there Tuesday!
  6. "Middlesex has a unique position in playing at a ground [Lord's] that is likely to be a host venue at the tournament, yet not benefiting from the revenues associated with that status. " Lets be honest here they are doing it on a purely selfish perspective of not wanting to loose revenues, don't get me wrong I'm not saying I support this new tournament but they aren't voting no for what many people would probably view as the right reason I'd say.
  7. That's interesting cause his last few runs do match up in terms of not really put the hammer down but not getting terribly beaten, got to love a rogue bit of information like this
  8. Yeah I've seen about the crowds, hipflask isn't a bad shout, easy enough to get in then is it? Heard the bookies queues are enormous and to think of using your phone to do so too. I keep seeing djakadam being backed I just don't think it has enough compared to the rest of the field
  9. I more meant that in the prem it has been on the rise past few years and many teams have struggled with it which in my opinion is due to a lack of class on the ball. Even the "top 6" have struggled at times with it. Germany it is used often but teams are more comfortable with passing in my opinion, as for atletico the class going forward also helps there but again in la liga they are all much more confident and capable on the ball then the average prem teams. This isn't a knock at it because I'm not saying possession is everything we proved it last year, but the general effectiveness of this is the prem at present is down to the weak standard of players on the ball.
  10. The rise of pressing tactics and them being so effective just shows how the prem lacks a bit of quality on the ball in comparison to other leagues etc
  11. Going Cheltenham for the Gold Cup for the first time, can't wait! What are people's views on the champions races then, I'm liking the following: Champion Hurdle - Buveur D'Air - can't say Yanworth has impressed me hugely, D'Air always looks so effortless whenever I've seen Stayers Hurdle - Unowhatimeanharry 6/5 just can't look past him at the moment Queen Mother Chase - Douvan just a monster absolute monster Gold Cup - Sizing John - I really like him, take out Douvan and his record is brilliant - 10/1 fantastic odds and proved he can do it over 3m in the Irish Gold Cup with a great run Couldn't be more wrong come next week I'm sure!
  12. I played in it last year when I was at uni, It's basically just one big tournament. Games aren't too long but we started in a group of 4 and those teams all stay on one pitch and rotate, top two went through to the KO stages. I imagine its a fairly standardised set-up in terms of group then KO stages. It's a decent event imo free football can't complain!
  13. No one man is bigger then a club, its sad to have to do it but that's true the club comes first and this is the right decision for the club And anyone who cares about what other fans think why do you give a shit its not a school playground ffs who cares who likes us
  14. I know its so difficult to pronounce some of names like Morgan, Root, Ali, Hales, Roy, Stokes, Buttler, I mean two t's what?!
