    I've always thought Anderson is an overrated piece of **** bowler. So yes.

    Maybe. Not sure. Sounds close.
    This was a serious post:

    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

    Care to elaborate?

    All the signs point to yes. Of course, class is permanent etc, but it'd be interesting looking at their records over the past few years.

    Over the last 12 months Broad has outbowled Anderson, obviously needs to do it for longer but it looks like Broad has now become the top class bowler we expected him to become and Anderson has just got older and less effective. They are still the best pair of bowlers we have and with Stokes emerging and the opportunity of picking Onions in the summer this train wreck of a tour hasn't been quite as bad for the bowling as the batting.

    If I was an English fan the one thing that'd kick me in the guts and annoy me is people downplaying Anderson as a bowler and his career. Would frustrate me, would need to bite my lip hard..

    Yeah, it's just down to their respective ages isn't it? Anderson may well out-bowl Broad in the occasional test matches when conditions favour swing, but other than that he simply doesn't pose enough of a threat nowadays.

    Broad's still not the finished article imo. There are still too many times when he leaves his brain in his kitbag, which is why we need a strong captain to keep him in check on those occasions. It's also why I wouldn't want to see him as captain.

    Don't think its down to age. Harris and Johnson are even older and out bowling both of them. Jimmy's looked flat and maybe these conditions aren't the kind he prospers.

    He's just bowled too short and hasn't gotten movement. His pace has been fine.
