Slane, Agree ! Not sure how Cameron seems to escape the blowtorch.

The coaching scrutiny ladder

Yeah fair point Gyfox. I just think that PA is a somewhat volatile organisation but going very well at the moment.

The coaching scrutiny ladder

Yeah hard choices !

Richmond versus Carlton: Best teams of the last 50 years

👍

What’s a wicket worth? Part 1: Baggy green bowlers

Thanks Matth yes you could well be completely correct about bowlers dismissing bunnies. There are so many caveats about all of this. The spin is mixed of the current lot at any rate. Lyon has an average over 30 and Ashwin just over 26

Test batting averages: What’s in a number?

Thanks- that is useful

Thanks !

Thanks- yes I have in mind to look at the reverse at some stage

Great article. Despite the closeness in score I found little to be enthused about from a magpie standpoint. Same errors from the same personnel. I think it is time to bite the bullet and play Moore forward. Maybe Keane or Kelly down back when they return?

More of the same for Collingwood

Peter Hi. Yes you are right George Young kicked 8 for the Saints that day.

The greatest Magpies of the last 50 years

I once saw Carman kick 11 in the mud at Moorabbin including 6 in the last quarter

Thanks agree with all that. Cant help feeling that if the Pies had snagged one premiership in the late 1960’s, early 1970’s that a great era could have beckoned. Then again there were superb Carlton, Richmond and later North Melb and Hawthorn sides

Hi I believe Grant Thomas said as such

The greatest Magpies of the last 50 years

Good side

The greatest Magpies of the last 50 years

Thanks Peter the scribe, Yes I was torn on Didak and Daisy is a tad lucky but just thought he was more versatile and would add more pace to a somewhat one paced lineup. Totally with you on Cloke he was great in that 2010-2011 period and kicked 6 in the losing qualifying final against Hawthorn in 2012

Only Leon Davis possibly could be in the discussion?

Don, yes I know- trying to squeeze in players !

The greatest Magpies of the last 50 years

Hi. Yes I did agonise over Anthony Rocca. In the end I went for the superior running power and aerobic capacity of Cloke

Hi. Tony Shaw won the 1990 Norm Smith medal

The greatest Magpies of the last 50 years

Yes fair point thanks

England’s best Test side of the last 50 years

Yes that is what I felt. The best England line up of the last 50 years would be comfortably beaten by the best Aussie, WI teams

England’s best Test side of the last 50 years

Thanks Bear and Jumbo. I was really torn on Gooch.

England’s best Test side of the last 50 years

Fair enough

England’s best Test side of the last 50 years

Yes Kim Hughes is a case in point. Burdened with the captaincy way too soon, he played the mighty West Indies many times over a short space of time.

The best Australian and Indian sides of the last 50 years

Thanks Matth. Doug Walters was a beauty.
