Men and women of the jury, I draw your attention to Exhibit A - a reasonably well-written piece by the former Hampshire Captain, Mark Nicholas.

www.espncricinfo.com/magazine/content/story/703093.html

In particular, ladies and gentlemen, you might be interested in the fourth paragraph, reproduced below...


A not uncommon view is that England's cricketers had it coming. We know which of the team's more colourful characters encouraged that view - and a cocksure style is the sum of it. But the very certainty of cocksure was one of the reasons for their success. This is no different from the Australian side that walked the walk for so long. Shane Warne could intimidate with a look; Matthew Hayden with a word; Ricky Ponting with a narrow eye; Glenn McGrath with a sneer, and when the lot of them were on top - as one, like a pack of hyenas - they became excruciating to play against. Call this bullying and you wouldn't be far wrong. And that is what the best teams do: they bully the game out of anyone who shows the slightest sign of weakness against them.

Sound remarkably familiar? Lofthouse, you knob!

Top quality internetting my good man.
How embarrassing that this Lofthouse loser can't string two words together and resorts to a cut and paste job.
Another fizzer from Mr Johnson. ;)

Besides being an absolutely top drawer piece of 'sleuthing', again by the boy Holmes, he has again managed to accentuate the total divergence of the Aussie visitors to this site.
I think its fair to say, we have had one or two posters from the Antipodes who have actually been net contributors. Sadly they have been vastly outnumbered and undermined by the stereotypical buffoons who have plagued us every time they win a game.
Mitch, you are a breath of fresh air mate. Please don't just disappear as the series draws to an (very sorry) end. We need the diversity of posters from afar, it brings some much needed perspective. Along with Bobby Tony you are welcome guests, wish there were more like you.

Lofty .....Do one.
