Never liked him mate, he’s always come across like he fancies himself as the Ronaldo of cricket. Came across as a right dick in the first innings as well, although I accept Root started that in the ODI series.

 

England making a mess of this tail dispatching now as well as fucking up chance after chance with Kohli.

 

England players aren’t shy of acting like pricks - always rated Kohli and love watching him bat.

Seems to happen constantly , Cap'n , and it's up to us to stop him farming the strike as easily as he is. We are clueless in our bowling and field settings.

 

Having said that I would have settled for a first innings lead no problem after we were all out.

Our own worst enemies here, basically giving a totally set batsman as much of the strike as he wants to get a ball or 2 at a tailender. Prime example of poor thinking was when Anderson missed a massive trick not bowling a bouncer at Kohli when he was bowling at him last ball of the over (much) earlier.

 

Lack of a proper paceman hurts too, it’s been our issue at mopping up tails for ages now. This lot were over a hundred behind with 2 wickets left and I’d back them to have a lead of 30 or 40 at this rate.

Works every time...

 

Also explains why I never win much betting

Cricket is a weird game at times , Rashid was absolutely shocking in that spell, real park bowling,  and ends up with two wickets.

 

No wickets tonight & I make us favourites.

A good test side has their opponents 7 down and you think it won't be long before they end the innings. England have their opponents 7 down and you think there might be at least another 100 runs to come.

Did you see th ball?!

Yeah I know but it isn’t just this innings he throws his wicket away far too often, that ball was a peach fair enough

What a player. India massively off the hook with two lives on 5/100. Game set up beautifully now though.

Granted it was a good ball, but it didn’t turn at right angles, pitched middle and hit off stump.

 

Cook is a high standard opener (despite what many might say) but for me he seemed to be overthinking and got his front foot out too early and was stuck hanging his bat in front of his pad

 

Thought he was playing the man rather than the ball.

    • No, they should have waited until the situation could be reassesed and not jump at the first chance they get to grab at financial help they don't need.  Greedy bastards, always have been. And not to "save face" whatever that means but to at least pretend to stay true to the clubs ethos and values past and present for the sake of the supporters who make LFC what it is.  FSG cunts. 
    • Can only hope that they have something else up their sleeve , huge donation to local NHS  workers or suchlike  ?   Jurgen won't be happy if this is the case alone 
    • This needs to be paid for and the people paying for it are the same people handing over their money every week. The same people will face higher taxes for the next 10 years to pay for this. I have rarely criticised FSG in the past but I hope John scrapes his boat the next time he sets sail. Prick.
    • You see you've bought into it. It's fsg's fault. Or whatever that prick of a CEO is called. LFC is no different to a large portion of businesses in this country. Because of this governments mismanagement of the health service for 10 years and their absolutele shit show at handling this crisis, their cash flow has gone. So what they were bringing in money a while back? You think that's not accounted for? If we end up not finishing the season and sky want their money back, clubs everywhere will be facing bankruptcy, although admittedly probably not ours. This fund off the government doesn't last forever, it lasts for 3 months. It's get it now or don't get it at all, yet the ramifications of this crisis could go on for many more months or years. Nobody is questioning any company who's taking this money, except those in the premier league. It's fucking double standards and the government themselves put it out in the media to get people critising football and worrying about what is on a national scale just pennies, when there's plenty we should be worrying about how this crisis is being handled. No PPE? Who cares, what are the footballers doing. Failing to test front line workers for covid? That's not a problem, some football clubs might do what the entire fucking country is doing and put people on furlough, oh and they'll still be on 100% wages.    I don't get what ynwa has to do with anything in this instance, you think John Henry is one of us? Everyone will take home exactly what they do today. Everyone is keeping their jobs. As someone pointed out earlier today, the club had already paid the stewards (and I assume other match day staff) up till then end of the season. The rest is just the Tories making you worry some fucking prick from Boston who's made his money out of the stock market has more obligation to the people of this country than Branson, Ashley, Martin and Langsam.
