    Remember the good old days when men used to just chin someone they had an issue with? Sigh.
    Damn Brumbers makes a case much better than me again, but kind of what I've been saying all along.

    Trego also said something similar

    Is that what you say to yourself when you can't get it up?

    Well the bowlers union have their say

    Anderson
    Kevin talked about having issues within the dressing room. What’s frustrating is that this was, literally, the first we knew about it. Kevin has mentioned nothing to us.

    Broad
    'Certainly within the four walls, I wouldn't have thought there was a problem.

    Swann
    I'd just say that, if there were issues, we pride ourselves on having a very open dressing room and he certainly didn't mention any problems to anyone else.’

    Bresnan
    "I was very surprised when he said those things in his press conference at the end of the Leeds game, and I think a few of the other lads were as surprised as I was.
    "I didn't feel anything had changed inside the dressing-room - there was no bickering, no fighting, there was nothing."Personally I've got no problem with Kevin.

    Then Prior had that talk with KP and in his unretirement video said he was now fine with the dressing room and couldn't wait to get back.

    Then the texts to some SA players.....

    Wonder what the dressing room will be like when he returns?

    Pretty disgraceful stuff really. Yet it's the Torygraph, so not surprising.

    It's a peculiar piece for Oborne to write. Now I usually lean towards the "only good Tory is a dead Tory" style of old-school unreconstructed leftism, but I have a lot of time for him. He's from the anglican, paternalistic, one-nation wing of conservatism and has campaigned at various times against Apartheid and Israel's occupation of Palestine, so could arguably be said to be somewhat to the left of New Labour on some important issues. He also noteably wrote a wholly excellent (and, if not definitive, then certainly the tome against which future efforts will be judged) biography of Basil D'Oliveira, who represented Blighty with great honour and no little skill, so for him to say:

    Seems quite a stunning volte face.

    His article ignores SA-born players like Robin Smith, who was one of the bravest and least selfish players to wear the three lions when I was a young shaver, for no other reason than Judgey doesn't seem to fit the ugly Saffer archetype he's constructed.

    For my money the thing that unites Greig & Pietersen could just as easily be that they're avaricious arseholes, not that they're South African.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Funny you should mention Prior, I remember few years ago talking to one of the Yorkshire players and somehow a similar topic got brought up and he said apparently Prior's meant to be a bit of a hard bastard.

    Can't imagine too many of the England players or cricketers in general ever having too many fights ever, probably won't know how to.
