    Boycott calls for Fletcher to go

    Full story

    I suppose it could be moved if it is in the wrong forum.

    I have to agree with Boycott on most, but you can't sack your coach less then a month out from the Ashes begins, it would be too disruptive for one and another it would take away any hope England had. IMO I think he wil lleave after the World Cup next year (unless he has already said or has said otherwise).

    Not going to happen so mute point, and whilst I'm not exactly a Boycott fan:

    "If I were playing for England and the team sheet went up and Yardy was batting in front of me, there would be hell to pay. I wouldn't let it happen. How do you think it makes other batsmen in the team feel? What sort of message does that send out if a left-arm spinner who bats a bit goes in ahead of you?"
    LOL! So true.

    yep it has been mentioned before dude, and i do believe boycott is right on most issues. Maybe there needs some fresh ideas, or atleast to pick the best and most attacking team

    Boycott is a great commentator, but he does occasionally talk real crap on various issues. England being the best in the world in both tests and ODIs after last Ashes, for instance.

    Love him in the commentary box though. My favourite after Benaud.

    What a complete tool.

    I used to think he was OK until I read that. I'm surprised too because he doesn't give the impression he thought that a lot of the time and, like Bob Willis, can be quite scathing of England.

    I'd expect that kind of tripe more from a cheerleader type like Dermot Reeve or Ian Botham.

    Too far. You can call Botham a fool, you can call Bob Willis a tool, but don't ever dare insult the greatest living Yorkshireman

    Sack Fletcher and make Flintoff captain/coach. Freddy's being a bit lazy and not really doing enough for the team IMO.
