    Broad wins (for me)

    Broad vs Gough is tougher. I'm leaning towards Gough. I'm thinking about it further before voting.

    Neither of them are relevant really. Broad wins easily.

    haha not comfortably at all.

    gough for a start took his wickets away from home at 26.9. he took them at 22 in asia. 27 in australia. this is an area he completely trumps broad.

    gough was a supremely gifted bowler who was unfortunate to spend the majority of his career carrying a **** england team.

    Gough was also a different style of bowler to Broad. Shorter, and therefore skiddier. Faster too, and more reliant on swing, including reverse swing from time to time.


    Maybe Broad vs Caddick is a closer comparison. If so, I'd take Broad thanks.

    Limited overs you'd be getting Gough to bowl over Broad at any stage of the innings. Test matches is closer. As you say England had a **** team, often had no scoreboard pressure (amongst other things). I'm going with Gough. I voted Gough. Another thing to mention - he is the best English yorker bowler I've ever seen.

    Some lovely stats but he didn't have half the career Broad has.

    Broad - was a **** but has become a reasonable human being - sadly the Dazzler made the journey in the opposite direction

    Would be relevant if they played in the same conditions against the same batting lineups.

    yes lad unless two bowlers have bowled on the exact same day to the exact same batsman in the exact same conditions then all comparisons are null and void and we should close this place down.

    Indeed.

    How many times has Broad hulked up and won us a match on his own with a demon spell? Countless.

    The last three home Ashes series were won by such spells.

    Heís blown cold at times, but heís won us matches consistently over a long period of time and been part of one of Test Cricketís best ever new ball partnerships.

    Iím a big fan of Goughy, but for me this isnít a question that needs much thought at all. We had some good players in the 90s, who were unfortunate to play then but as a result of that thereís long been a tendency to overstate them on here against contemporaries who didnít have to suffer the same fate.

    Anderson and Broad are the best seamers England have had in my life, Cook the best opener, Pietersen and Root the best middle order bats etc. You can list good players - some very good like Gough, or Thorpe but the reality is they arenít as good as the examples Iíve just listed. Maybe if they played in this central contract era they could have been. They didnít and they werenít.

    Contemporary bowlers are better than a pure stat comparison may indicate.

    Broad >> Gough
    Broad > Hoggard

    That said

    McGrath >> Anderson

    Does Gough walk when he edges it to second slip?
