Love them or Loathe them??
At least Aussies now know what a "chav" is...
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?

You've got to love the great Barmy Army.
Love their noise. I wish they'd come up with some proper songs instead of sticking to boring, universal soccer chants, though.Originally Posted by Langeveldt
Whats so bad about the Barmys songs.
On Sky today, there seemed to be one excessivley drunk bloke, shouting at the top of his voice (I couldn't understand what he was saying), did anyone else hear him?
Sky had the FX mikes turned up waaay too high.. It was like being in a pub
I was thinking that about the stump mikes. FX?Originally Posted by Langeveldt
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.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

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
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.Originally Posted by UncleTheOne
