    I'm actually thankful we had a "pants pulled down"..now we've got a new selection panel and a new coach coming in...so thank you kiwis..we owe you!! .

    And i'm sure your team will enjoy sitting on the sidelines while we play India, Sa and Eng over the next nine months too .

    Better make sure you take that series against Bangladesh then. It'll be a long year otherwise.

    Don't worry Howsie..when the kiwis go back to 8th they'll have a chance to rise up again in November .

    This job will sink or swim Micky Arthur IMO. We'd have beaten the brakes off them with him as coach, at least 4-0, his Aus team was a total debacle. That said his S.A team where good, so will see who should take most blame for the issues. Normally I'd blame the coach mostly but Shane Watson is Shane Watson so who knows.

    Sport can be a funny old game..take for example Tony Pulis who was pretty much driven out of Stoke City because they felt his football was "boring" and his tactics were "old fashion". He leaves them and ends up taking over a club who were doomed for relegation in Crystal Palace..he not only keeps them up with ease but then tops it off by being named the manager of the year in the process. The moral of the story is a fresh start can do wonders for a coach...it's a different environment in the caribbean and he'll have time to pretty much mold his own side without being under too much pressure.

    It has been a fantastic week for West Indies cricket IMHO (ignoring the farcical ending to the CPL). As WW said, we've finally gotten rid of the worst selectors in our history and replaced them with people who understand our cricket and watch all the domestic cricket week in and out. It has been a terribly frustrating time under Clyde Butthead and co so here's hoping that from now on if we lose, which we probably will for a while, we'll at least lose with our best players who can learn and improve as a result of the experience.

    As for Otis, as I said a few times in the NZ tour thread, it was time for him to go. A home loss to NZ in our own conditions, strange selection decisions in series deciding matches and awful man management skills (falling out with every senior player at some point in his tenure). It is time for fresh ideas to help implement Pybus's vision. I've always quite liked Micky Arthur so wouldn't mind his appointment at all if that is indeed what they're planning.

    I've always thought Gibson was a good chap; certainly did well as our bowling coach. Could see him getting a county coaching gig.

    Arthur tho; not convinced. Think the bloke's a bit of a cock, tbh. Can't see him and Gayle getting on at all. From the outside looking in, Arthur comes across as a JFDI who rules by dictat.

    #27 because you failed to do your own homework properly by failing to post a joke yourself.

    If you're going to beat your chest then run away with your tail between your legs after a loss instead of owning the egg on your face then you deserve everything you get if you turn up months later and continue chest beating.
