    I love the way cricket has attracted "The masses" - But can't stand their noise, why do they have to chant like they're watching football?

    There not really chavs, they can't afford to do stuff like this. They're just passionate.

    Love their noise. I wish they'd come up with some proper songs instead of sticking to boring, universal soccer chants, though.

    In the coverage I heard right at the end there was an obviously refreshed punter who kept yelling, "Freddie doesn't like you, Stephen." after Harmy wasn't given the new cherry.

    Legends, England fans, cricket and football (the good ones) are the finest support going. Always come back for more, singing louder than ever, and they annoy the Aussies so what more do you want?

    The Fanatics? Pfffttt. Amateurs.

    It made me chuckle after lunch when Holding was commentating and they were talking about the fanatics but Mikey kept referring to them as the fantastics

    The fact they kept cheering even though England were getting pretty hammered is fairplay to them.

    They started out as tennis supporters, what do you expect. Singing at the cricket is just wrong. Cricket Australia commissioned Greg Champion to come up with songs to combat the barmy army, thankfully I haven't heard any of his work, there's no doubt they would be cringeworthy to begin with but after they have been been through the censors at CA, I shudder at the thought.
