    Should we be patient with Jonathan Trott?

    2? wtf is that?

    Not good enough Jonathan. I'd consider not allowing him to bat in the second innings and dropping him, forever.

    Strike rate of 22.

    Needs to stop trying to be aggressive and revert to his natural defensiveness.

    When I emailed the ECB suggesting Hick's recall three years ago, they told me they thought it was "unlikely." And these ****s wonder why we didn't beat the crims 5-0. ****ing joke, game's going down the ****ter in this country.

    Should've recalled Gough, Caddick and Rampers. All games would've been won by an innings!

    Found the email

    To whom it may concern,

    In light of some poor performances over a period of three years now, I would like to offer my services to Peter Moores and the team in an advisory capacity. I believe with my passion, drive and selectorial expertise I can help England to regain the Ashes and become the world's undisputed champions in all formats of the game.

    If it was up to me, England would play the following line-up, I am sure this will help you make your mind up:

    Cook+
    Strauss*
    Anderson
    Broad
    Pietersen
    Hick
    Ramprakash
    Flintoff
    Gough
    Sidebottom
    Panesar

    As you can see, this is a well-balanced line-up. It mixes youth (Broad, Cook, Anderson) with experience (Gough, Flintoff, Hick, Ramprakash) and contains one true all-rounder (Anderson), a bowling all-rounder (Flintoff) and Stuart Broad is useful for a few fill-in overs. If the pitch is a greentop we can replace Panesar with an extra batsman for true depth.

    To further enhance my selectorial brilliance, I would like to tell you some tales of my time on the International Cricket Captain series. On the 2005 version I led Kent to the County Championship with players that I developed from a young age. Then on the 2006 version I outdid Duncan Fletcher and Andrew Flintoff by comfortably retaining the Ashes in Australia (3-0). On my most recent game I have only played one season in which I led Somerset to the second division title in spite of not winning a game until the 9th round.

    Just in case all this hadn't helped you to make up your mind, I already own replicas of both the Test and One-day shirts and would be happy to wear these in my official capacity. I will not, though, under any circumstances be seen wearing the Twenty20 kit as it looks somewhat like a Liverpool shirt and I am a Tranmere Rovers supporters.

    I eagerly anticipate your reply and the commencement of my duties. I have some committments this weekend but am happy to rearrange them for the inevitable press conference that will follow my appointment.

    Thanks
    Martyn Corrin

    "Not anymore, Will"
    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

    Translation: LOL at this guy!

    Will was probably short for Willy.

    Excellent trolling on your part.
