Flintoff, Oval to you

AdvantagesBar managers get your barrels full - Flintoffs in town

DisadvantagesJust for a pot of ashes

"...yourself 127 years onwards, and England and Australia contest the ashes; which is an urn about 6 inches tall, and weighs several grams. Not much to look at unless you're an undertaker. =============================================== '''Flintoff, Oval to you''' O ============111 My favourite phrase for watching the ashes this year is 'You muppet!' and that's while viewing England's one and only victory against the Aussies this Summer. - Now that ..."

Bloody South Africans! Review with images

AdvantagesGood series

DisadvantagesNo bowling

"...the first test on the England tour this winter I certainly think we are going too far by selecting Trott. England should not be stuffing itself with ringers to get results. Bopara or Bell should be at number three. It's like having three Germans in the England soccer team to me. Stop! Results wise in South Africa it was a positive start going into the all-important test series, losing the soggy T20 series with South Africa setting their highest ..." Read review

The Ashes 2006/07 Preview

AdvantagesIt's the Ashes!

DisadvantagesEngland will seriously struggle to regain the trophy

"...generation…there you go, but maybe England were missing a trick in employing a Swede as a foreign coach - Zimbabwean's like Duncan Fletcher make successful teams look as straightforward and as common as Sven having another affair. (Hmm, make that two stabs at him then…) But can England really do it all again? Every Englishman will say 'yes' if Freddie Flintoff is fit, and every Aussie will say 'no' if he isn't, but when he takes to the field for ..." Read review

England Cricket Team Part 1

AdvantagesSide hard to beat

DisadvantagesOften wrong team selected

"...WRITTEN AUGUST 2000 LIFE AS AN ENGLAND SUPPORTER I first started watching England on TV in 1970 at the age of 8. In those days the BBC1 commentators were Jim Laker and Richie Benaud. Peter West introduced each test session. 1970 England was due to play South Africa but this tour was cancelled due to the sports wide ban due to South Africa’s apartheid policies. Instead England played a test series against the Rest of the World. ..." Read review

Proof that England beat Australia sometimes

Advantagesa great day- a memory to treasure

Disadvantagesall too rare for the England cricket team

"...match today (2nd March 2003). England need to beat Australia to have any real chance of progressing in the Cricket World Cup. In order to raise the spirits of the nation, I thought I would write a review about my greatest sporting moment. I love the game of cricket. So much so that my wife has to prise me off the sofa when the coverage is on. Two years ago, however, my love of the game obtained a new dimension. For my birthday that year, I ..." Read review
