Cricket: Chris Jordan's catch to dismiss Bravo yesterday
at 07:27 17 Apr 2015

Was absolutely stunning. Only just missed repeating the trick a few minutes later too.



Proper Test cricket yesterday, WI digging in and not giving anything away. England should take eight wickets in a full day though.

Must win games and all that
at 08:52 11 Apr 2015

It's been said a few times this season but only Bolton has been before today. This one definitely is a 'must win' game.

We all know it won't be straightforward, too many years of hardship following Town to think otherwise. We'll win though, probably by a couple.

Whatever anyone's frustrations with Mick and certain players, put them to one side at three and get behind the team. The atmosphere last week was superb - loud, supportive, defiant - so it would be nice to get some of that today.

Win this one, beat Cardiff and the table won't look quite so bad. Then Wolves becomes a very big game.

Hey Gav - that Redbull Music Tour ad is awful

Appears at the bottom of every news page and won't go away. Even clicking on it brings up the whole thing which then reverts to an annoyance at the bottom of the screen.

Some pieces on Richie Benaud
at 08:01 10 Apr 2015

There's a clear contrast between the affection for Benaud and the grubby, avaricious ways of those running the game today. I think Richie was right up there with Sir Bobby as a man held in genuine affection by all right-thinking people.

Varney or Noel Hunt?
at 11:16 7 Apr 2015

Assuming we're still in this division next season which would anyone prefer? I think Hunt would probably score more goals but Varney seems to add more to the team in terms of his overall play.

This may be of interest, given that Hampstead and Kilburn is apparently the most marginal constituency in the country:

Well last time we lost to Huddersfield we got promoted
at 07:49 7 Apr 2015

It was that long ago that Marcus Stewart scored.

It's hard to escape the feeling that we've blown it since January, six defeats in eight away matches is such a contrast to the pre-Christmas resilience.

The season isn't quite done yet though, we need to win the next two but do that and let's see where we are. Overall though, a lack of guile and creativity couple with a defence that seems to give away a goal almost every game looks to have cost us.

Bugger.
