#2995467 And the Cricket County Champions are?

Posted by marklaspalmas on 14 September 2014 - 07:21 PM

Yes and no. If he's not good enough now, he may still be at some point.




In a selfish way, to have lads like him, Johnny B, Brezza, etc. on the fringe of the test side but not quite there is perfect for Yorkshire. And as I said previously, they more than pull their weight when it comes to producing international players.

Mine in the 46th post on a thread about a total non-story.


Cas Vegas is ace. Pass it on.

I remember Ronnie Gibbs wearing them.


And Peter Shilton.

Monkey/back removal completed. Let's hope we can push on from here.

Yes, as NS says, you just sit there for hours waiting. Impossible to warm up, apart from walking to the middle. In an extraordinarily long stand, the next man in might get switched just to give him a break. But there has to be someone padded up watching and waiting.

Oof! And a mere four and a half months later comes a riposte!


The worldwide interweb eh?


I wonder if any tight-shorted, tattoed players/bearded hipsters/folk clocking off from the pits of the frozen north will have time to reply to you in a similar timeframe.

Enjoyed that. Mindst, I enjoyed last night too. Come to think of it, I generally do enjoy a game of RL. Well done both sides.

Sounds like Fev's shopping list for next season, oh hang on Mr Moneybags has left :lol:


Thanks for the emoticon, that way we know your comment is hilarious!


Three ex-Fev players in there anyway.


###### list. On current form I think Sharp, Worthington, Mendeika, and Ellis could be in there.

I know the there's-no-one-else argument and it's a perfectly valid reason why Cook wasn't sacked on the spot after the aussie tour, one of the most disgraceful efforts of recent decades, which is saying something.


But now it's got to the point where simply anyone will do. Carberry, Compton, Lees, Boycott's Mother would all get more runs and literally anyone could skipper the side better.


Make Bell the fall guy for the rest of the summer, he's senior player and doing sod all to justify his place anyway.

Just goes to show that top 8 for the playoffs is about 2 too many. All those clubs have had mediocre seasons.

There is an easy solution. Won't go into it now as it is being considered.


Do tell.

I can't get hold of a copy myself, but I believe Terry Clawson's autobiography "All The Wrong Moves" is an absolute classic. It was self published with assistance from Yorkshire Art Circus, but they sold out quickly and sadly a second print wasn't done. Any copies available on Amazon, etc were snapped up in no time when Terry died.


Well worth persevering with to try and get a copy. Open, honest, hilarious, touching. Terry wrote it out himself in biro on A4 sheets. No ghost-writer, very little editing. Brilliant.
