    How many sets of goalposts on wheels does WW need to break before the shop runs out

    I quite like WW, he's a passionate and sensitive fan who always has high hopes for his team, it's unfortunate that the reality is different but you can't fault his spirit however volatile it may be !!

    What "egg"? i made my position clear after it was confirmed Narine was being left out!!.. .

    Anyways that's in the past now. Gibson's departure has now been CONFIRMED by the wicb. Now it's a matter of getting in the replacement in due course whether it's Arthur or somebody else.

    Gibson gone

    IT’S NOW OFFICIAL! Barbadian Ottis Gibson is no longer the West Indies’ cricket coach after serving four years in the job.

    Official confirmation came late last night that the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and Gibson had mutually agreed to terminate their association.

    In a Press release, the WICB expressed its gratitude to Gibson “for his unwavering commitment and professionalism during his tenure as the coach of the West Indies team”.

    WICB chief executive officer Michael Muirhead thanked Gibson for his services but did not give any reason for the coach’s sudden departure.
    One day world cup winners- Champions trophy winners- T20 world cup winners- 29 test series without defeat record- Highest run chase in test history record and some think we're minnows? :P

    There's nothing wrong with being passionate. The problem is with posters who continually shift goalposts to avoid ever admitting they were wrong and lost fair and square.

    Why sink to his level in response though?

    Saying our best weapon was left out and blasting the coaches for changing a side that won by ten wickets isn't "moving the goalposts"..it's stating a fact...any fair minded person would admit that those two things played a huge role in WI losing the series.

    But anyway guys lets just move on aye? Gibson is GONE and i'm too happy right now to be arguing over silly stuff .

    Welcome back Windie.

    But you do owe us a series review post. After we won the 3rd test we kept waiting for you to come online and post your thoughts. Even if it was blaming the selectors for excluding Narine.

    Cheers Hurricane...mate i was too bitter to do that...and like i said i didn't want to get banned so i left you guys to enjoy your win. In the end i think i made the right move.

    Congratulations on the win..and i say that to all the kiwis here. It's over now and i'm glad to say my team is moving forward in the right direction now. Honestly mate if before that series you would have told me we'll lose 2-1 but the selectors and Gibson would be gone as a result i 100% would have taken it because longterm this is great for us. No doubt i was in a dark place after that 3rd test..but in the end it's all been worth it .

    Yeah I'd have been so cut if I was a WI fan and had to deal with that scoreline having watched the selectors make a complete mockery of themselves. Narine would have made a huge difference IMO

    It was spectacular.
