    Imagine how good the Windies could be if they weren't weighed down by the massive chips on their collective shoulders.

We have a few matchwinners, nobody give us a chance, every game somebody stepped up - good to see Carlos play like that in his debut World Cup. Shows the T20 depth we have in the Caribbean, hopefully we will continue to improve. People were wondering we would plays this tournament, we had issues with the board, Mark Nicholas called us players with no brain. But all of us came together, these 15 men put adversity aside, play this type of cricket in front of such passionate fans. It was tremendous. I want to thank the coaching team, Phil Simmons. We had a new manager in this tournament. Got to give credit to the entire team here. This is for all the fans in the Caribbean. I don't know when I'm going to be playing for West Indies again, I want to thank my team, thanks my coaching staff. This is for the CHAMPIONS!"


    I'm not sammy, trust me. But as you can see the entire team was insulted and that's the problem. We shouldn't be insulting champions with BS comments. Racist etc .. But we won it all and i'm happy about that - keep your pretentious class in root. kohli etc and we will keep the power hitters and continue to win.
    You're about as likeable as Marlon Samuels.

    Talking of Marlon Samuels....

    Geoff Lawson acuses Marlon of being a gangster. If that isn't libel I don't know what is!

    “He’s tied up with some pretty shady people back in the West Indies, he’s a guy you don’t muck around with on or off the field,” Lawson said. “He’s tied up with the gangs there and it goes well beyond cricket.”
    .

    I don't pay him much attention. Could my Aussie friends tell me if he is a few marbles short of a set?! It certainly seems that way from those comments. I wish Marlon had kept his mouth shut. He has just provided a bunch of loons the perfect opportunity to moan.

    In my experience, he is very level-headed, intelligent (qualified optometrist iirc) and normal to the point of being boring

    Interesting. So either he has lots of evidence for this statement or he has had a complete brain fade. If I were Marlon I would sue the daylights out of him to be honest. Those are serious allegations.

    Well Samuels did get banned for 2 years and his association with at least one Asian gang is a matter of public record so .......

    That is a different kette of fish from basically calling Marlon a Jamaican gangster though is't it? Prety hard to defend that statment. Mind you Marlon said Shane's face isn't real so they'll all end up suing each other. It's all very childish and detracting from an amazing perfomance by our team. Oh well. Marlon should have kept his mouth shut, he hd already won the battle with his innings.

    Warne can't sue for that face thing surely? Lawyer can correct me if I am wrong but if the statement is obviously a joke that is normally protected speech isn't it

    He also can't sue if the implication (cosmetic surgery) is true, which it is.

    Maybe it's a Dungeons and Dragons gang.

    While I maybe a loon, I've disliked Marlon Samuels long before he mouthed off in his presser.

    No shame there, most people do. He's an idiot. I was more referring to it giving people the chance to talk about negative stuff rather than focusing on an incredible few months for West Indies cricket.

    All said and done, nothing else matters if they celebrate their victory like this:



    Champions!
