    Sounds like we might be getting the final English chapter coming up very soon.

    It certainly seems that's what is being hinted, mind you I don't think it'll be the end of the story.

    Oh and if true, I think we can say they're totally disregarding Giles, so I don't see much hope for him.

    Anyway, busy day for Clarke, getting rid of his bÍte noire, and ruining International Cricket.

    Piers Morgan saying they've got rid of him on twitter. Big fan of this if true, even if it is only because of how angry it's made Morgan.

    It's certainly a big plus, I quite like how he keeps saying it's "gutless", surely it's anything but?

    Yeah probably does, but you got the feeling Cook didn't want him around, so I can't say I'm surprised. I genuinely believe his close relationship with penis, actually has played a part. The way he (moron) was mocking Trott for going home as well as Swann. Was disappointed in freddie for going along with it too. It was time to publically say he was out of order, whether you be KP, Vaughan, Warne or Flintoff.

    Instead they all seemed so desperate to stay in with the ****wit, they just praised him for the Lee debacle. It's all a bit untenable. I do think the great Irony of Morgans rant here, is he played a big part in it all.

    Even though we've got hardly any bats now, so I'll not be putting out the bunting.

    @grecian - Brumby had a quote in his sig last time KP was axed, something like 'There is no situation that isn't made worse by the introduction of Piers Morgan'

    Enough said I guess

    Better now than another 12 months along the line when the next coach decides that KP is like cancer for the dressing room as seemingly every other coach has decided. Just glad it's all over and we don't have to deal with this debate again and again.

    Oh, that's good, wish I had sigs turned on to read it.

    Kinda my thoughts, but I can see why people are upset, and he was a thrilling player, been around over a decade too. Yet you are just waiting for the next spat. TBH, I'm pretty sure he's not that gutted, he'll get squillions playing around the World, and I bet Surrey will do well out of him.

    It would be interesting to know what he's actually done to earn the big boot. Since his readmission after the SA affair in 2012, that is. Sure he's probably a prize arse at times, but he's hardly alone in that. And managers are paid to, er, manage, aren't they? I'm going to take a fair bit of persuading that there are four better middle order batsmen available to us.

    Reminds me a bit of Gower being ditched when Gooch was captain. Obviously a different character, but equally unjustifiable in purely cricketing terms.

    Expected, shame. Best player I have seen for us but to be honest he probably underachieved for his talent despite being a bloody star.

    Winner in this will be Prior as we will need his experience in the summer so he CAN'T be dropped.

    Only in England... This is comical. Oh well, at least they have a load of other exciting players to draw in the crowds.
