As a Norwich fan I’d love Wes to do well and Irish Messi is a perfect description of him and by that I mean I never once saw him kick with his right foot in his entire career :stoked:

Anyway …….still on a high from putting Man City to the sword last night :happy:

Can the Irish Messi fire the Jets to glory?

But good work getting the word ‘temeritoriously’ onto the Roar

England have no moral high ground over ball tampering

I’m just saying what I see.? I don’t see the English media bringing up the sandpaper thing at all.

England have no moral high ground over ball tampering

Errrr, Monty answering a question In an Indian newspaper….referencing a newspaper article about a 2010 series …..yes ….what a hot take…

England have no moral high ground over ball tampering

Well…….. you’re normally fairly sensible Ronan..but…. you’ve got to get over it. I have not heard one England player ( in current squad ) or to be honest, in the media, go on about so called “sandpapergate” at all this summer.

Do you feel better now that’s out ?

Did Australia really win the Ashes?

What criticism has he faced ??
(This is not an accusatory question, I genuinely didn’t know much about him before this series ,I’m not Aussie.)

Warner's ugly but crucial Ashes innings

Pick your own adjective! Mine was tiresome :thumbup:

Smith cops sickening blow as Aussies scrap at Lord's

Fairly harsh, watching it live , I thought both were going down the leg side….as did the commentators ….as did the bowler…as did Paine

Smith cops sickening blow as Aussies scrap at Lord's

Good summation Ronan, all results still possible, brilliant day of test cricket. As an Englishman I agree the booing is tiresome but as far as Joffra/Jos situation , obviously I don’t know what they’re thinking but…
As someone who’s job is medical and has mandatory yearly CPR/life support etc training … in almost any situation if youre faced with someone in an emergency and they’re breathing/conscious and especially talking you immediately relax and if they’re being taken care of then all good.
(Also Jos is a saint)

Wallabies beat All Blacks after dominant second half in Bledisloe 1

Imagine if White and O’Connor had been playing Super Rugby in Aus for the last couple of years instead of plodding around up North ………Wallabies would have won by 40 points!
(Can someone tell me how to do emojis please – this would have been a smiley face to signify extremely gentle ribbing!)

Wallabies beat All Blacks after dominant second half in Bledisloe 1

That is an unbelievable squad of players, I would say you could pick any player from the first 11 and they would walk into any international team today. Suppose you could maybe argue Kohli over Ponting.
Who was number 4 – Mark Waugh?

Remembering Australia's Ashes domination in 2001

“Ashes shellacking shows England must invest more in women’s cricket”

Also Mary: “A £20million investment has been announced for women’s domestic cricket in England”

Ashes shellacking shows England must invest more in women's cricket

Looking forward to it Ronan, to be honest I have literally no idea how the series will pan out, but as I’ve said elsewhere ………….. it’s a brave man that buys tickets to days 4 and 5 with these two teams!

Jofra Archer in line for debut Ashes Test

Hi, Onside, my point was that if a lower tier club was playing at home (in a relatively big game) and the lighting wasn’t sufficient for broadcast then it would be incumbent on the the broadcaster to sort that out ,should it want to broadcast it. (Shouldn’t it??? )
(I don’t actually know the answer to this)

There'd be more magic in the FFA Cup if teams could play at home

Ps , at least we’ve cemented our opening pair…… Roy and Leach……. will be like Hayden and Langer in their pomp!

England humiliated by Ireland - 85 all out

Sorry Chris but this is ABSOLUTELY an Ashes warm up and nothing more.
You can say England took Ireland lightly, they’re arrogant , expect to win, yada yada the usual phrases that get trotted out but I for one am well happy there was a match between the World Cup win and the Ashes.
I feel there was always going to be a bit of an adjustment and even watching it took me a while to get used to the white clothes and red ball, seems so long since I’d seen it!
I’m an England fan and looking forward to the series but can’t really tell what’s going to happen except… best wishes to anyone who buys tickets for days 4 and 5!

England humiliated by Ireland - 85 all out

Seems odd that there’s enough light to play the game but it can still be switched at the behest of….. whoever wants to broadcast it. You feel it should be a case of – you want to broadcast it, bring yer own additional lights!.
Don’t think people would mind too much if for an early round there’s a few highlights that aren’t in ultra definition.
If a lower tier team gets on through to later rounds then there’s an onus on everyone to make sure it goes ahead at the “little” ground, no better atmosphere than an underdog going at one of the big boys at their own patch.

I miss the days of us being 100 for 5!

Stop what you're doing and watch England getting skittled for 85... by Ireland

Malan was good…I think….but I think it’s a World Cup hangover, I can’t seem to recall England’s team or test form !

(Apart from Cooky retiring ;( )

Bancroft or Labuschagne could take Khawaja's Ashes spot

Happy for him to chance his arm (within reason) as long as selectors tell him he’s got all 5 tests whatever happens.
I’m ok with Vince too, I just hope he somehow he gets a big score. He’s one of those players who never looks out of touch, strokes his way to 30 and gets out!

Bancroft or Labuschagne could take Khawaja's Ashes spot

It’s nice to have so many options. It seems so long since England have played tests my memory is hazy but I’m fairly certain over the last 2-3 years we’ve ,only about once, not been about 100 for 3 down.
Might as well chuck Roy in to open, everyone’s hoping he’ll turn out like Warner (who , it must be said,when it was first suggested about him playing test cricket most people were against it)

Bancroft or Labuschagne could take Khawaja's Ashes spot

I can confirm England DID have a civil war, the memory’s hazy as we did it at school when I was about 13, think it was 1640’s ish. Oliver Cromwell an all that.
Quite possibly due to Brexit there will be another but as long as we win the World Cup on Sunday at least I’ll be happy ….as the country goes down in flames!

(To be honest It won’t be too bad if it’s NZ who win, if it had been Aus though……..that’s another matter)

Clinical England boss Australia in World Cup semi-final

Cheers Scott, I think I’ll be taking a break from the Roar for a bit
(unless England can squeak into the semis!)
Did I ever tell you about my Kiwi cousins?
