    Old One-Eye's Match Report

    Each Derby County home match, I write a match report for one of the fans' websites. It's not intended to be totally serious, but it is intended to give you some kind of a feel of what Pride Park and Derby County means to me. Please bear in mind that the reports are NOT intended to be a balanced...

    Mile Sterjovski

    Yorkshire deny Itinerant Problem

    Gillespie story It has been announced today that Jason Gillespie will be joining Yorkshire County Cricket Club during 2006. I really hope that for Gillespie's sake he puts his career back on track again after his 2005 Ashes debacle. He was a superb bowler until quite recently.

    Weber Cup - Tenpin Bowling

    We English cricket fans love to put it over the Aussies, but in other sports the big rivalry is with the USA. So it is with bowling - and for those who have Sky Sports, tune in to Sky Sports 3 for the annual Europe v USA Weber Cup. I'll try to keep you updated if anyone's interested. It's...

    RIP Cloughie

    I have just been told that, sadly, Brian Clough, arguably the greatest football manager of all time, has passed away today. I am heartbroken, and if it is true, will be posting nothing else today.

    So good a Freudian slip it deserved a mention

    I was listening to a radio programme last night whilst driving home from Winchester. It was a discussion about the rowing, and the medal prospects for Great Britain for today (Saturday). One commentator felt that the fours was a 'nail-on', but the bit which made me sit up and take notice was...

    Devil Ducky's match reports

    Spain 1 Russia 0 <quack> The great thing about this tournament is the preparations the Portuguese have made in ensuring that all goes smoothly. They have employed advisors from all around the world, making sure that they are aware of customs, foibles and other areas of potential embarrassment...

    Steve Waugh - preparing for retirement

    Steve Waugh has gone into print today suggesting that a) Injured batsmen should not be allowed a runner b) Leg-byes should be abolished from the game Full story (?) here Personally, I can see the benefits in both ideas - and also the very obvious drawbacks. Is Steve just spinning a line of...

    Dr. Robin Smith retires

    link goes to CW front page story My two pennyworth - Robin Smith is one of the few 'English' players of the last 20 years I would cross the road to see. When he was 'retired' (dropped) from international cricket in 1996, England's test side went into an uncontrolled decline for the next 3...

    Darren Gough retires from test cricket

    Cricket Web's lead article The Dazzler has knocked test cricket on the head. He has been an exceptional servant to England in the past and it was very brave of him to give it 'one more go' for the current series, but that little extra which he always had, that spark, is no longer there. With...

    No Hollioake game for Indian stars

    I bring to your attention Andre's lead article Andre's article regarding the BCCI's refusal to allow Mohammad Kaif and Yuvraj Singh to participate in the Ben Hollioake Memorial game. The waffling reason given by the Indian board pays lip-service to a supposed policy regarding players...

    S. Africa will demolish England - Wessels

    Kepler Wessels, in an interview published in the Northampton Chronicle and Echo, has written off England's chances of beating South Africa this summer. Wessels report I think he's wrong (although he makes a good case for Thorpe's inclusion)

    Twenty20 - live internet coverage

    This should help - the URL of the ECB website which carries the URLs of all the UK local radio stations who are providing live coverage of the Twenty20 games. Don't know how good they all are, but Ian Hall at Radio Derby is always good for a laugh ("In my day we wouldn't have stood for this...

    Sensational start

    What a sensational start for Richard Johnson in test cricket. 2 wickets in his first over (and actually on a hat-trick). Brilliant!!!
