Predicting sport is probably the thing I’m worst at in the entire world. But our first innings has got c.170 all out with Root being the only lad to post 50+ written all over it.
🦗 Aus vs Eng - First Ashes Test - 23-27 November - Gabba, Brisbane 🦗 with last minute sponsorship from Stuart Binny and co
it’s never too late for a late sponsorship deal
Find cricket (and rugby) much more predictable than football but yes can still end up looking silly sometimes.
One thing I can predict with certainty is I’ll be shouting at Australians for being cunts within about 3 minutes.
The man has never let anyone down in his life, m9
TIL that its England and Wales cricket team. was mightily confused by Ruffers’ comments upthread.
Remember Simon Jones boyo
nope. don’t watch cricket!
anyway that’ll be it from me. hope you all enjoy your terrible, terrible sport.
Robert Croft airbrushed out of history YET AGAIN.
Fucksake, gonna get Aussies talking to me about this like I give a shit about any game that takes 5 days to play that’s not made by Avalon Hill.
don’t worry, neither team are worthy of taking these games to 5 days.
Anybody got any podcast recs? Should I just stick with the TMS one?
The Andy Zaltzman one (The Unbelievable Ashes) should be good.
I’m (probably stupidly) optimistic. I don’t think this Australia team is anything to be afraid of.
I keep telling myself that too. It’s the home advantage and the 3 bowlers in the op that’ll make the difference.
Appreciate the recco coho but I really cannot stand Zaltzman.
The cricinfo Switch Hit is frustratingly infrequent a lot of the time, but they usually get more reliable around big tours - I think they’re going to be weekly (or more) for the next couple of months. I quite like it, tends to include Mark Butcher, always enjoy his arguments with George Dobell. They’ve got a couple of aussies doing sections that’re more aus focused, so that’s good too.
Sounds like they’ve got a bit of Ballance Cheers man, will investigate.
