To be fair, she is actually the hottest!

 

She's comfortably the hottest. 

 

Seems odd that India, Pakistani, West Indian etc cricketers don't appear to exist in the eyes of that website.

The adventurous style has gotten us to #1 as an ODI team (at the absolute detriment to the test team btw) but we do lack discipline as a team. Hindsight a wonderful thing but Bairstow should have settled down after his 100 & looked to bat out the innings.  The bowling from England was shocking though

Vaughn was saying something earlier today on TMS, about discipline and how England should be able to learn to play low risk periods during an innings, rather than just all guns blazing.

 

Good decision making from Plunkett today, allowing himself to get run out - crossing Butler to keep him in for the last over.

Someone explain how this lot have smashed 480 past Australia and got beat by Scotland?

Because they didn’t take the Scotland game seriously and essentially used it as a warm up for this series.

 

Showed why they’re currently the best ODI side in the world tonight, the India series will be a massive test though.

 

Isn’t that seven wins out of the last eight against Australia in ODIs ?

Fucking hell. That performance is about as good as the decision for the local broadcaster here to bring David Cunting Warner into the commentary box in some pathetic attempt to smooth over things with the public. 

 

It hasn't been well-received. 

 

You've got one free punch and Sergio Ramos and David Warner standing there...who gets it?

Ramos all day, i'm afraid. I'll leave Joe Root to lamp Warner.

I'm loving Australian Cricket getting a kick in the guts.  

We thoroughly thoroughly deserve it.

Justin Langer will just usher in a replica culture... same era as Lehmann, same questionable balls and morality, same ungracious, bullying "winning" mentality.

And trotting out Warner for commentary is just a sign that the cricket and the media cunts are all in this shite together.

 

I fully expect Smith to turn up at my son's cricket club for a clinic some time this summer.

You know, redemption, paying it forward and all that.

    • Well spotted. Klopp is so good he doesn't need other people to talk on his behalf.
    • I particularly liked ‘Jurgen said ‘when I first met Klopp’ !!! Amazing!
    • The hardest people to please are the people who pay their hard earned money every week to support their team?   Just the way it should be.
    • Former CEO Ian Ayre has identified some of the outstanding qualities that saw Jürgen Klopp become Liverpool manager.

      Ayre who held the position at the club between 2014-17 said there was an instant connection between Klopp and the big decision makers at the club.

      ESPN reported Klopp as saying:

      “I'm a big believer that when you run a football club that first impressions are everything.

      "And the first time I met Jurgen... I can honestly say within 15 minutes I thought this guy is perfect.

      Ayre said that it was clear that Klopp understood what makes the club special and gave him a lofty accolade.

      “It was one of the times that you know that your team, your city, your club and, with all the greatest respect to all the managers that came before him, I think Jurgen is almost like this prophet type level of manager and he is absolutely perfect for that club."

      From the early days of the Klopp tenure, the German has been extremely big on bringing a real sense of energy and enthusiasm to his role of manager.   And he certainly does practice what he preaches to his players.

      There is no sense of letting the game drift along, animated discussions with the fourth official are a common sight, as is making sure the Anfield crowd are constantly energised in the contest.   And the celebrations after a win are a symbol of true team spirit.

      Ayre says that those emotions is Klopp in a nutshell.

      “Everything you see from him, going on the field and hugging everybody [after matches] and that whole thing, it's very natural.

      “He doesn't do it for effect, he doesn't do it to make himself seem like a nicer person, it's just real and I just connected with him immediately."

                     In contrast, Ayre he was a figure who rankled with the fanbase in his time at the club.   Since leaving Liverpool nearly three years ago, the 56 year-old has spent time at 1860 Munich and is currently CEO of Nashville in the MLS who are gearing up for their first season in the competition.

      He talked about some of the challenges associated with setting up a new franchise.

      “Having patience is the hardest piece and that's why I think you have to be aligned as a group.

      “The owners, the coach, the management, the players, everybody has to be aligned with the plan and you have to stick together.

      "The hardest people to bring along on that journey is the fans. 

      “Everyone wants instant success, but if you keep aligned as people and you can look at all the people in the room and say 'we're on the same path,' then I think you can achieve great things.”
