We all know what he can do. If we want to learn anything useful about Luke Shaw, start him, rather than give him 20 minutes from the bench when the game has become disjointed after 10 or so substitutions.
I would not be happy about them putting out a weakened side on Saturday. Only playing Sunderland, who they would expect to beat with a full strength side. The FA Cup had opened up with the 4 biggest clubs playing each other. what else are they going to win - the PL, the Champions' League?
with almost the exact blueprint which stuffed us in the Ashes. Lose early wickets, middle order recovers, Johnson blows away the batting, Warner is hugely aggressive on the back of a big lead, Johnson blows away the batters again. Maybe we have been underestimating the Aussies?
Was impressed with Derby. McClaren has done a really good job. They kept the ball on the floor & moved it swiftly. They also defended well at times & worked incredibly hard. Was disappointed with QPR - they showed a lack of ambition. Would have expected Kranjcar to have been more influential & Barton was a nightmare. Looked well off the pace & wanted to get involved in every incident, before he picked up an over-due yellow. I can see Derby as a real contender for 2nd place.
will, as usual, probably get what he wants. They have already agreed to pay an additional bribe to his merry men to work on boxing Day this year, despite that being part of their contract. And his drivers already earn £40-60k per year, over double what a bus driver gets, for a 35 hour week in an easier job!
for the full time England job, hasn't he? The 1 day performance has been at least as bad as the tests. He continues to believe Root is a 20/20 batsman (?!?) & continued to pick the abysmal Dernbach, who went for his standard 12 an over again today.
hard to see any other verdict, bearing it was his word against the woman's. Unfortunately, this usually applies in rape cases as well. Was also surprised that his son was allowed to be a character witness - no surprise that he gave a glowing reference.
