Simply a comparison of Crawley being as shit as Burns. A point I made last week iirc.

Imagine posting that when youíve literally brought Burns up in your first post of the day.

Fíkin brilliant stuff

That's exactly what you did. It's becoming difficult to tell whether you're more obsessed with Wolfie or Burnsy....

I am able to post about the erstwhile England opener without it being an invitation for you to prove once and for all what a **** you are.

Now, if you donít mind letís leave it there. Iíve had a gut full of your self centred nonsense already.

Everyone already knows that youíre right all the time. Well done Captain. Well done.

As above, it was simply a comparison of openers.

Anyway, the Nipple is just here to cause a ruck so Iíll bail.

Sees ya laters taters :p

That may well be true. But don't be calling out other posters for doing exactly what you did yourself. You were literally the first person to mention Burns this morning & yet felt the need to chasten Wolfie for doing it.

Look at this post from yesterday :

No need to reference Burns at all. But you chose to, with a sly, petty dig. IMHO, the constant sniping detracts from what is one of the better threads on the BBS - as most of the cricket threads are.

Maiden Eagle 27-12-2021 09:46 AM

Look, I know Burns has a pretty 'quirky' technique but up to fairly recently, in spite of that, his Test record was not that bad. The very good Australian bowlers have exposed his faults ruthlessly, as they have to a number of Batsmen.

Now Hameed may play in a straighter fashion but he bats way too deep in his crease, so even when he plays well forward to the ball, the stride is not that big, so the Aussie bowlers pitch the ball well up to him and he keeps nicking off. So you could argue that his technique is crap, as well. And it's a shame, because he looked really promising in India, a few years ago.

And BTW, I couldn't care if Burns played for Surrey, Durham or The Roundhead Cavaliers, like any England batsman, I just want him to get some runs !!

Yeah that is the one

Tbh I hope we do go down 5-0

Silverwood & Root is a hopeless combination.

I’d put Morgan in charge off the pitch. Captain? God knows.

LuieJack 27-12-2021 10:24 AM

Oh dear it's to embarrassing to expand on what has already been said previously, and this was only the end of Day TWO. Can this seriously end up being an Innings Defeat? what after the Aussies could not even muster 270 runs in their innings. Shameful.

I think most line ups would have been at least 2 down against that onslaught!

Thats all from me, I'll go back to enjoying the sniping! :D:hi:

Yeah, I make you spot on, Jim. Pretty impressive from an 'over the hill' Starc & Boland on day-boo :p

Innings defeat here is quite possible

Eagle's Nest 27-12-2021 11:10 AM

It's all a bit late now but I'd have Burns and Bairstow at 1 and 2 for the next Test. I don't think Hameed or Crawley will get anything from this, so I'd rather go with experience.

The crowd getting behind them like that reminded me of going to tests as a youngster with Lillee and Thommo in action! :p

Someone was praising Warney because he will criticise his own, but he doesn't necessarily do that, so much as create personal vendetta's.

The one against Starc was deluded as his personal life!

Could not disagree with your sentiments, as the simple fact is we are in the mire when looking ahead unless wholesome change happens. But sadly how often have we said this after returning from being humilated after a tour, so will this time be any different?
I said yesterday we need to replace the clueless Silverwood with hopefully Gillespie for starters, take away the captaincy from Root and let him focus on what he does best, then somehow find a capable Opening pair which seems like mission impossible, then somehow try to replace the irresistable pair of Anderson and Broad, oh i nearly forgot find a spinner who can actually get the ball to spin.
How we achieve all of this when looking at the County scene only heaven knows:( but we must before we travel to India, NZ and Australia again to save further humilation.:rolleyes:
