    Must be furious that Flintoff is returning the same week as him.

    he's a massive dick imo.
    You take my pawn, I take your rook. You take my bishop, I take your queen. You take my knight, I buy Mayfair. Because while you were busy playing chess, I've been playing Monopoly the entire time.

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Typical arrangement would be for KP to be paid fees for naming rights and design of programs etc. - I would be very surprised if he is risking any money at all

    Market is massive as expats spend a fortune on after-school activities for kids and there are literally tens of thousands with high disposable income from cricket loving nations

    Also, I would not be surprised if KP became a resident of Dubai as it is tax-free so he might be around more than you think

    Yeah I knew that most of the money for him would be in the naming., never really thought about it as an after school thing. Reading the site it clashes almost entirely with the Big Bash and IPL which he plays so I wouldn't see him being there much, probably like the DLCA here.

    Suggested dates are winter/spring so no real surprise as summer is too hot and main school holidays (10 weeks) start at end of June

    Paid after school and holiday activities are massive as there is no real club setup in many sports plus many people use it as glorified babysitting

    Also, the bigger the name, the better as it is a bit of a wankfest with many people e.g. ManU football academies are huge

    This could be a real money spinner for the promoters as I cant remember anything comparable

    TBF to KP that was a pretty reserved article. After Downton's ill advised comments the other week one would forgive KP for a bit of retaliation, but apart from a little dig at Flower he didn't really say anything out of line IMO.

    Sounds like he's moved on and bears no malice..........which is a good place for him to be.

    This article strikes me as being totally disingenuous tbh.

    Is he allowed to write that article because the term of the CA has expired, or because the CA was terminated due to Downton's comments?
