Alright, I've calmed down now.
Good on the Aussie boys for winning the Ashes, some fantastic cricket to watch.
Gotta feel for Cook though, so many saying he not a good enough captain. I don't see anybody else on the team ready to take up the roll.
Pup on the other hand, so stoked, he deserves this.

This may sound like a stupid question, how's Canada on the international stage?

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

As a lifelong Essex fan, and England fan, I have never wanted Cook as captain. He's the best batsman England have had for 40 years, and they've forced responsibility onto him. Big mistake.

Problem is, there is no-one else to choose from. For me it should always be a bowler - they know what they're doing when setting fields and changing bowler. But unless you give it to Broad, there is no-one to take it from Cook.

My fear is that his batting, which for so long has had him on track for hall-of-fame figures, will never recover. England need a new leader to allow Cook to do what he does best - win series single-handedly.

First World Cup qualifying game tomorrow I believe - not sure how Canada are for quality these days, but if they can't escape that pitiful group, then there is little hope for the game.

I will always regret not leaving England when I finished uni and coming over to Canada. I was offered a place in the Montreal second XI, a job and accommodation...turned it down like a fool. I'd have been in that first XI and in the international side so quickly too.

Broad wouldn't be a bad choice if that's what they want to do.
You've got some good younger players coming through, so maybe in several years time there will be a lot of options.
But right now, Cook really needs that confidence boosting win that nearly happened last night. Was actually hoping for that result, it would do the Aussies good to loose. I don't know if it's that they get full of themselves, but the media over here certainly do.
