    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Whether his motives are right or wrong, Furball's observation is pretty much spot on.

    I wasn't in there too often but long enough to notice grand generalisations being drawn about players abilities after a single day.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    There is maybe a bit too much of fans of one team telling everyone else who good they are and they everyone else gloating at the misplaced hubris when they get owned by visiting South Africans, er, another team.

    No-one pumps up their team's tyres worse than the English and I always die inside slightly when I read "We're great, us. 2-0, no doubt" posts. The potential for egg on face is massive.

    Also a few to many of the

    "You're a ****"

    "No, you're a ****. Worst post ever"


    styley posts too.

    There are three main problems IMO:

    1 - people jumping to conclusions about teams and players based on one day or game, and then using this warped conclusions to support their prejudices
    2 - ****s who think cricket is played on Microsoft Excel
    3 - a poster who shall remain nameless posting unfunny drivel throughout the thread, only diverting from this to be condescending and smug

    Appoint me as mod and I'll have these problems fixed by December

    I don't think anyone except for an English fan could have made this post as it would have been untactful of us neutrals. But yes I agree with your post.

    There are certain English fans who just don't like when people call it as they see it and don't call the English team the best cricket team to have ever played the game. They throw little girlish tantrums. Saw it in the Pak/England series and we're seeing it again. Boo ****ing hoo.

    How does that explain the rest of the people who agree with Furball's sentiment.

    Do you always have to be so obnoxious. For the record, not just me as I know of plenty of non-Poms who agree with this general sentiment, but clearly the world revolves purely around you and your opinions so those of others clearly don't count. Don't treat me like you treat those other people you feud with as it's not what I'm looking for.

    Touchy much? All you do is complain and talk about cricsim these days. If you want to do that, then shift off to cricsim permanently. Not interested.
