Good or bad appointment? Has this been a certainty for a while and that's why KP was retired?

I very much doubt it.

The fact that Peter Moores would be highly unlikely to call on the selectors to pick KP might have been a factor in his appointment though.

Whatever the case, my main feeling is one of relief that Ashley Giles didn't get it.

Funnily enough I think the appointment of Moores, who to many might be considered a retrograde step, is actually an unusually left-field choice by the ECB.

Pietersen was not the only player who questioned Moores' management style at the time.

And the temptation for the ECB might have been to go for the Sven Goran Eriksson option - he must be good because he's not English.

But Moores is English,experienced in the county game and guaranteed not to bring back Pietersen.

I'm not 100% sure why but I feel excited and comfortable at the same time.

Game on.

As I've said previously, mixed emotions about the appointment, mainly from a selfish Lancastrian point of view :oops:
Hopefully he will be as successful as he was with Sussex and ourselves (in the main) and we can move on from the recent calamities.
The relief that AG didn't get it, and that all the facets of the game will come back to be under the head coaches control are a major step forward. It will be interesting to see who really is going to be number two, and how that delegation of responsibility will actually work, if the media stories are correct.
Onward and upwards.

(Bit disappointed I didn't even get an interview after the level of support I've had on here)

Yeah, I'm with most of you here in the "thank f#$k it's not Giles" camp. Mixed feelings really, I don't think it is an incredibly inspiring appointment but I don't think it is a poor one either.......lets just hope that Moores and Cook work well together and can bring some form of stability and consistency to our team.

Personally I think Moores is a very brave man, he's taking on a shambles and having had 10 years of relative success the English public and press are going to expect that he delivers results........especially Ashes results. With the team that he has inherited he will have to do something absolutely remarkable for that to happen.

Have to be honest I feel decidedly underwhelmed by the PM appointment, although there is the silver lining that we are not lumbered with Ashley Giles...for the time being anyway?!

I remember PMs last stint and it is was not good (even ignoring the pointless management speak that spouted out of his mouth), he seemed to have lost most of the senior players (nopt just KP) in the dressing room by the time of his departure and simpy seemed out of his depth (ala a certain David Moyes or Steve McLaren). No one seemed to respect him...

He seems a decent bloke and is obviously a good coach at county level winning the CC with Lancs even though he did also get relegated, but has he developed since his last stint? Has he coached any teams overseas to develop his coaching/knowledge of the world game? Not that I'm aware of...so his previous shortcomings could still be levelled at him now.

Seems to me this is a nice safe apppointment for the ECB, I still maintain we need a clean sweep of the England management/backroom structure. So can't help but feeling this is a missed opportunity for England to finally get their house in order and move forward instead of going nowhere fast on another trip on the magic roundabout. More of the same ahead I fear...

Also some of the shite spouted by Downton at the press conference beggared belief and simpy reinforced my view that England cricket is not in very safe hands atm...

This bascially sum up my views on Peter Moores appointment and is written/researched far better than my post above... ;)
