    What's happening you guys !!

    Calling English, West Indian and now even South African Fans

    Whats wrong with you guys?
    Dont you love the game?
    Dont you understand that your teams are going to the dogs?
    Arent you overcome by a sense of national shame? (A different type for the Carribean countries)
    Cant you see who is responsible for it?

    I have not seen a single thread to kick out Bennet king, Duncan Fletcher and now even the South African coach (whatever maybe his name) !

    You guys are a national disgrace

    PS : Come to think of it I dont see too many former captains from your countries asking for their heads too. Aren't they interested in the job? Or is it that the money and the power that goes with it in India, isnt enough?

    yep, they don't love the game like we Indians do.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Haha, quality. Will finish my Flintoff effigy today and I'm just waiting for the paint to dry on my donkey, with Fletcher mask ready to be taped on later when I parade it through the village.

    obviously they dont feel national shame yet and dont need to call for the head of their coach yet coz they are still in the world cup and still have a chance to win it and to play well for the rest of the world cup. unlike india and pakistan who arent in the world cup and didnt make the super 8.

    England are woeful at ODI's, their sucess in the CB series was quite odd but deserved nonetheless. West Indies run hot and cold while South Africa should realistically make it through to the semi's. Don't see the point complaining and asking for people's heads, because quite simply India and Pakistan go over the top when their team fails.

    Is it just me or was SJS's post just a little tongue-in-cheek?

    of course, it was tongue-in-cheek.


    I guess I know SJS well enough to say that.

    Haha, yeah it most definitely was. I loled.

    Come to think of it though, who is the South African coach? I know Jonty Rhodes is their fielding coach, but I've got no idea about the other coaches...

    As an England fan I don't feel the need to push the panic buttuon yet. Although Vaughan's form is frightfully shocking. I'd Gladly see him dropped. But hey, we can still make the semis.

    Wishful thinking really mate, it'd be a major shock if England got into the semi finals.

    So, rather unusually, they should be looking forward to having the Mickey taken out of them?



    Exit, stage left.

    Its just a game and everyone needs to take it just like that, no fan or critic needs to go over the top while displaying their displeasure over their team's disappointing performance.




    P.S: West Indies are being criticised in all parts of the Caribbean islands, former greats have even demanded Lara to step down as captain during the WC itself.

    No offence, but poor effort in being tongue in cheek for mine from SJS. There are a fair few threads related to English as well. There have been threads on Fletcher in the past and can be more in future as well once English exit from the world cup. The Indians on the forum right now are pretty good and indulge in some interesting discussion.
