    bring back alex tudor!!!

    y isnt alex tudor ahead of simon jones in the pescking order for the england pace attack?

    he is surely just as good a player if not better
    and another thing poor old paul collingwood has seemingly dissapeared following the emergence of strauss key and now ian bell.i would like to se both of these players get another chance with the test team

    sure they cannot be overlooked forever

    and as for agareth batty well he needs no more chances i have seen enough of him along with the linkes of philip schofield

    Tudor isn't anywhere near because he's been injured and when fit underperforming for Surrey. Besides, it's hardly as if our current pacemen are underperforming is it?

    Batty won't displace Giles as he's always been a much lesser performer when playing alongside him.

    I assume you mean Chris Schofield, not Philip, but seeing as Philip does seem to bowl about as much as Chris at the moment, maybe I'm wrong there?

    Collingwood - who exactly do you propose him getting in the side ahead of?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Okay, we've got the best England side of my lifetime, and you want to bring in a consistently under-achieving, injury prone and inconsistent paceman with an attitude problem. Why?

    Collingwood has not been picked because he's been in the wrong place at the wrong time - that's bad luck on his part, but who are you going to drop?!

    Tudor is more aggressive, if not better, than Anderson, Saggers and Kirtley.

    He's only better if you're facing him and you want to win.

    The best I have seen of Alex Tudor was in the home Test series against the Lankans in 2002. A pity he can't replicate that form. And the batting form he displayed against NZ.

    No arguing that he has potential, but the attitude and injury proneness make him not worth bothering with.

    What attitude problems has Tudor posed?

    SL Test 2002 @ OT... Hoggard was bowling himself into the ground, the ball was thrown to Tudor, who complained about a "niggle" so Hoggard had to run in again.

    He's famous for his attitude problems...he just doesnt put the hard yards in. Bowlers rarely bowl 100% fit, but they get on with it...something Tudor wouldnt do. He also had a major stamina problem, he just couldnt bowl long spells...and it was hardly like he steamed in every ball.
