    from atherton's piece:

    "and there were no senior players telling him Pietersen should remain. Pietersen had one or two young acolytes that he surrounded himself with"

    gee who does that sound like
    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

It's so frustrating, they're undoing all the good work done by Flower in the last few years because of one bad series. Gonna be a long way back for England now, I'm expecting a miserable series in Sri Lanka.
    I am sure the ECB are hoping that KP just plays twenty20 around the world from now on, him making county runs would certainly put them in an awkward position. Hard to see him turning out for 4 day games though.

    Farcical.

    Probably the most spectacular batsman I've ever watched bat live.

    AWTGingerfurball. There's a clique at work. As is typical of the MBA types, the ECB probably don't care who's at fault here. All they're interested in is in confirming that the situation is unsalvageable and in deciding which side to sacrifice that would result in fewer casualties. But they've shot themselves in the foot by not realising that you're better served chopping off three fingers than by sacrificing the thumb.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    The Swann clique do come across as the most unlikable bunch of tossers, who take themselves far too seriously.

    There was something always very 'school bully' about Swann.

    Wonder why Piers is getting his info on what happened in the meeting today?

    Kevin Pietersen ran out of runs to outweigh obnoxious attitude

    Thought this summed it up reasonably well.

    Swann has retired tho + Prior has been dropped

    So there really isn't much of anything left. That's probably how they like it. Nothing left over from the previous generation means they can start with a clean slate.

    The Swann clique are the people who were following the fake KP or whatever it was on twitter. Not really a construct of this forum.

    Not sure why Prior's name always gets lumped in there

    He was the one who called KP last time round as well. Cook is probably more in the clique than Broad funnily enough.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..
