Do you really imagine we're that bad that we can't beat those two at home, having failed to beat Sri Lanka at home so recently?
Lightning rarely strikes twice.
And I'm interested to know how the hell sacking him will improve our chances of beating WI and Ind at home?
And don't start banging on about "new ideas" unless you can give some examples of what these ideas may be.
New ideas: well id start by keeping them in a closed environment, no girlfriends wives around them 24/7. Spend more time playing cricket! which is definitely part of fletchers decision - (he had input on the lets only play a couple of mickey mouse games before the ashes idea)- hes being too soft on them, Stop giving people chances - like mahmood who i know you dont rate. Tell people like pietersen where to bat i mean hes good but come on he cant be commanding the coach to put him where he likes! Play monty in every game.
Well that would be a start, but overall he needs to get less chummy with them i reckon, let them know its a bloody priveledge to play for their country and any more whinging about "weve bowled 200 overs on this tour and we're knackered" and the like mentality should be rewarded with the boot.
There rant over!
