    Actually, McKay gets a little bit shape sometimes with the red ball so I'm probably being a bit generous.

    Weirdly timed cry from Lehmann.

    Also if he is pro-walking, I'm not sure he is as in-tune with the 'baggy green culture' as has been made out

    It's very odd. And it's a close call whether his lying about the edge carrying straight to first slip is worse than his hypocrisy about people not walking. I couldn't call that one, tbh.

    Listening to the interview this morning, I wonder whether he's decided to jack it in after this series and just doesn't give a damn any more.

    I'm afraid if I pull my head in you wont be able to find it..

    Seriously though ****, we have a squad where 3 batsman have all been dropped due to their inability to contribute to the team. The selectors figure a right handed bat is the better option, so Faulkner is in.

    The only reason I've posted it here is because I think he wants to ruffle some feathers. He can't be that stupid as to think Broad actually hit it straight to slip.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    But Faulkner's not really a batsman. Its arguable the batting maybe stronger with Faulkner instead of an underperforming Cowan, Hughes, Ussie but the likely fix for our problems in the top order isn't coming from a bits and pieces all rounder who bats right handed.

    Nah he made that up. Very typical NUFAN post. No-one is more obsessed with batting handedness than him. Not even Swann.

    So we picked Faulkner because we are that afraid of Swann? If true that means the NSP is as mentally weak as most of our batting lineup.

    Didn't really have any idea what Lehmann was like before he was made coach, but I gotta say I'm disliking the guy the more and more I see of him. Really arrogant personality.

    Cribb, are you laughing at Tangles, or did I accidentally make a joke?
