  1. Bat tomorrow like its day one. Just bat time. We have to get enough to ensure we don't lose the game. The track looks like an absolute road but no harm in then letting the bowlers steam in
  2. Harsh on Evans in my view; but I suppose we don't know if he has a niggle, or something else going on and of course we don't watch them in training/nets etc.
  3. I don't know that either because I don't think that; because I don't see two things and just assume direct causality between the two? Not sure what more I can say?
  4. I agree. Now ask yourself when having lots of players in a position actually stopped MUFC buying a player. You even mentioned VdB. They also have Lingaard to go back there. Point is, I'm not convinced JM is quite as focussed on LCFC as some would like to imagine.
  5. Not fact mate; just opinion in this instance. I do agree with you, but also our owners just don't tolerate damage to reputation/brand. Principle means a lot in a club like ours. JM10 wants to play for Manchester United, but we all know that, that's pretty much a matter of public record.
  6. I suspect JM10 would have been moving on irrelevant of this; but that's another thread.
  7. Maybe it was all a bit last minute and that was where he could get in? I don't really know how it all works. I'm not a golfist.
  8. I have often wondered what the club would think of either Maddison or Vardy playing golf for this reason. I have never really taken any notice of whether either played, but I suppose we now have our answer. FWIW I would agree with you that its not ideal. Maybe its more an 'impact' sort of weakness though? I'm almost past caring.
  9. Oh yeah, for definite; he's a brilliant player and if he had gone this season uninjured, I'd expect him to have pretty much leading stats for his position.
  10. There is another point here which is that Maddison's hip is a real concern and has always been a bit suspect, but hasn't really improved in the way they hoped, despite some procedures and being 'managed'. Other teams are also noticeably targeting his hip (if you can be bothered, go check the last half hour of the Man City game).
  11. This I am happy to comment on; I've heard slightly different things, but I BELIEVE that MOST of the players (possibly all uninjured, but possibly NOT all uninjured) have had to report to the ground and train properly, but separately from any other squad, ie not with the academy, not with the first team etc.. What the plans are for next week I don't know but it may be different for different players. From the interviews so far, it sounds to me like he wishes to re-integrate them.
  12. No idea what you're talking about. Must have missed that one. Just have a little patience.
  13. Not really, but: - Read between the lines on Bert's recent post. - Could very easily have been even worse (and we'd have heard about it earlier!) - Keep an eye on twitter/MSM and anything the usual characters post on here over the next week (but very likely tomorrow) That's all I want to say for now.
  14. Phew. I thought there might be some negative PR around it, which would be damaging to the club and the brand as well as the indirect impact in terms of possible squad divisions and unrest. You've put my mind at rest now.
  15. Yep; and it might not all be up to BR. The owners have shown before what importance they put on reputation. Look at the aftermath of the orgy/thai sex thing.
  16. We're going to see a stage managed, half-arsed apology aren't we? They better bust a gut to get us top 4.
  17. Yes; cricket is a bit less tribal than football, obviously, and I don't dislike any side in a major way, but somehow if you'd posed the suggestion a keeper from a county would do this; McManus and Hampshire would be near the top (or at the top) of the list. Notts I don't really like, but mainly as they seem to endlessly poach our players. The correct play; even if they aren't sorry in the slightest, was for Vince and McManus to come out for that limp, spineless interview Vince actually gave and to just apologise for cheating. It would have now blown over.
  18. No; don't take the wind out of their sails I'd say; try to big them up. Work them hard but don't run them down.
  19. Mentioning Joe Root - by the way - Billy Root (his brother) has just got 100 and got it off the bowling of Joe Root. I do wonder how hard Joe was trying to get him out. Actually, I don't. He'll have been trying very hard!
  20. I can believe that some of the other players didn't know. The correct thing there is for the keeper to tell his captain and for his captain to call the batsman back. Interesting dynamic as James Vince has effectively sacked off a load of cash from IPL to play for Hampshire to try to force his way in to the England side, and he did bat beautifully. He is also the captain in question here. He probably big-time regrets not having called Azad back; not least as they were cruising to victory regardless. Even from a selfish view; James Vince could have framed himself here as the 'good g
  21. I never played at a particularly high level. Good village level I suppose and you're spot on... there are certain things that just aren't cricket. Poor decisions happen and tempers sometimes frayed, but cheating and running all over the wicket were simply not tolerated in any way, shape or form.
