Re: England Cricket: tour of South Africa

Stokes doesn't like to make things easy does he?

The first chance to catch Pretorius seemed a lot easier than the one he kept hold of!

How many defenders? not a single decent challenge. Gutless.

Legend down here in Pompey too - We beat his Pompey team by one goal IIRC in 1993 to gain promotion - He was also part of the double act with Redknapp that took Pompey up in 2003 RIP Bald Eagle My cousin used to work at Pompey and describes him as one of the most generous and funniest people she ev...

Re: Bob Willis RIP

Shocking and very sad news.

Like others I can remember watching the Ashes in 81.

Always enjoyed his punditry on Sky too.

RIP.

This is the first time I've read this thread in a few days, not much I can say other than to echo Smuts post below.
Hoping for the best outcome mate.

Re: KUMB Amateur Photography Thread 2019

Cheers Eggchaser. If I were to get myself a proper camera, what would you recommend? It would need to be 2nd hand probably as I'd be on a tight budget!! I don't think there's much difference in the functionality or quality of any of the major brands Matt. Canon and Nikon are probably the most commo...

Pablo - The Malmo scene is lovely, I like the colours in your first shot too, but would echo the comment about the branches on the left. Matt - the shots of the train and little girl are a really nice well-timed captures, I like the arch/hole in the wall to, but for me it it needs something to grab ...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Yes , agreed - South Africa may have won the Rugby World Cup but Japan put on a fantastic tournament , I thought their attitude to the sport was a breath of fresh air , happy faces everywhere , brilliant to behold . Absolutely and I will happily admit to having cheered them on in several games. We’...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Disappointing result but at the end of the day despite being 2nd best today we exceeded my pre tournament expectations. Thankfully, rather than sitting at home and watching on my own I decided to go to my old club and having resisted the beer until the last 10 minutes I can now drown my sorrows. It'...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

I'd just like to wish all the true England Supporters the very best of luck in next week's Final - your performance against the All Blacks was fully deserving of a World Cup win - had Wales gone through you would have lost but now at least you stand a chance . Commiserations TOMoS, I have to say as...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Hard luck Wales, an England v Wales final would have been a hell of an event. Can't help thinking Wales could have won if they'd opened up earlier. To go a try down and immediately go up the other end and score shows they had the ability to score against the Boks, but they didn't do it enough. It di...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

It wasn't the ex England players in the studio that said it , it was the ITV commentator - I would hope that the two English lads would big up England for next week and I'd be fine with that , completely different scenario . "One more hurdle" is not biased, no one knows who England will play next w...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Bit of an England bias from the commentary though ' Just one more hurdle for England next week when they meet either South Africa or Wales ' - as if Wales are only there for England to beat , surely ITV shouldn't be choosing sides ? I dare say the Welsh fellas they have on tomorrow will be talking ...
