  1. I’ve had this for a couple of years now. Great fun in the summer.
  2. Can’t beat a bit of The Smiths 👍
  3. He can’t be happy. Seems that whatever the state of any game, score, how we’re playing etc, he gets hauled off after an hour if he’s started ( Bournemouth at HT ).
  4. If, a big if, it’s say 0-0 with 20mins to go United will go deeper, and get a little jittery, hopefully. We have obviously set up to keep it tight initially, then go more attacking later, if it is all square.
  5. Not the first time is it regarding Archer ? New Zealand l think. I don’t get it at all, some are just unbelievably racist, and don’t care how offensive they are. I wonder if the BLM movement will/has made some racists more vocal, to almost counteract its affect.
  6. Definitely from the Shane Watson school of reviews ! 😂
  7. Time will tell but could've come off sooner l reckon. 280 lead would've been plenty. Game on.
  8. Some are saying England need a lead of 300. That is way too many, l reckon. A final day pitch, 250 could be plenty, providing we bowl well. We can’t afford to bat for more than an hour, plus we may need a second new ball late in the day.
  9. Plenty in this game still. England to bat for about an hour, just over maybe. A lead of 270/280 should be safe, WIndies don’t need to chase victory, and probably won’t. If we bowl well it could be a great day of test cricket.
  10. West Germany v Austria. That game pushed all final group/league games to KO at identical times. They played out a 0-0 game of walking football. Both qualified, eliminating Algeria l think.
  11. He is what England need. Too often we’ve been 30-3. I know he failed 1st innings in the last test but at least he wants to bat time. We’ve got/had too many Denly’s, who look good for an hour and nick off for ‘a nice 28’. We need to have one eye on the ashes too, can’t keep changing the line up. Stick with Sibley, Pope, Crawley, probably Burns. The bowling looks healthy too.
  12. Yeah, this situation is tailor made for him. An hour of this pair will be special.
  13. An hour of Stokes will be fun before tea. Stick 'em in for an hour, 3 down. Box seat.
  14. Chase is getting plenty of turn.....and he isn't known to spin a ball that much. Bess & even Root to get through a few overs l reckon.
  15. Yeah, this is a patience track. 2.5/3 per over. Not sure the Wlndies have that doggedness. They are better but not great.
