Vaughan thinks he's looked very good today.

So do I. Been very impressed with him this morning, he's looked like a decent opener.

Strange technique though. His head almost points to leg side mid-wicket at the point of delivery.

It is a bizarre technique, there's no doubt about that, loads of moving parts and strange idiosyncrasies. As we've seen with Smith though, it's not about how you do it...

Another big inside edge deflection given out lbw and reversed on appeal. These umpires are shocking.

10 errors for the match and it’s just after lunch on day 2. 

 

Awful.

When Root reviews straight away you know he’s not out. 

I thought the opposite! Against Ireland he reviewed straight away when we'd hit it...

Rory Burns now has the highest score by a (specialist) England opener not called Alastair Cook in a home Test since Alex Hales' 94 against Sri Lanka at Lord's in 2016. #Ashes

Anyone see the plane this morning? It had a banner reading, 'Arise Sir Ben Stokes- the Barmy Army'. 

 

Wankers.

The rampant nationalism at these events freaks my nut out.  There always has to be some sort of army, too.  Fuckin' armies.  What is the obsession with armies?  Raging inside, here.  

 

Come on England!

They've just been singing god save the queen. I hate all that Barmy Army stuff. I went a six nations match between England and Ireland at twickhenam about 10 years ago and had agreed to meet some fella I worked with for a pint before it. Turned up and him and his mates were dressed as knights from the crusades. Last time I ever spoke to him. I could shoot every single one of that England football band. I would happily do time for it.

That's cos there was someone in fancy dress as the Queen, but yeah fuck 'em all.  Why can't they just get behind the team without being ultra nationalistic bellends all trying to outdo each other?   I hope that guy in the Union Jack suit in the crowd gets hit by lightning on the way home.   Zzap!  Review that, you cunt.

If you're talking about Boycs, I may have to beat you to death with a stick of rhubarb!

    • Well that’s just bollocks as Rafa had left the club before Comolli had joined. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given little credence to those individuals who are using any possible reason to downplay the achievements of Liverpool this season.

      The Reds are just four wins away from their first league triumph in three decades, and are on the verge of wrapping up the title in the quickest period of time in the modern era, currently holding a 22 point lead over Man City.

      But as recent games against relegation threatened sides such as Norwich and West Ham have shown, there is certainly no such thing as a easy win.

      The fact that this team has only dropped points once this campaign is remarkable, however there is a theory around that it is to do with the failings of their main rivals, not so much the overall strength of Liverpool.

      Speaking ahead of the game against Watford on Saturday evening, Klopp was having none of that.

      The Daily Mail reported the manager as saying:

      “I couldn't care less (what people say).

      “Look, it is completely normal. 

      “I don't think that we should have any concern for things like this. If other people think like that – if they think City are not as good as they were – they ARE!

      “They have scored a little less goals than us, conceded a few more, and if you look why it is clear they have been missing some players. 

      “The other teams are really strong too. 

      “Yes, Bayern beat Tottenham and Chelsea [in the Champions League] but they are really strong over a season.

      “Yes, they (Spurs and Chelsea) have had some problems, that's all true. 

      “But in the moment that you play them you don't feel that they have these problems.

      “The points they have, we have no influence on that apart from the games when we play them.

      “So it says nothing about the quality of the Premier League, especially when you look at City v Real Madrid. 

      “I know that people look at these things and you saw that one of the best teams in the world maybe in the moment and City were clearly better so that shows as well how strong the League is.  

      Despite the outstanding consistency and success of the past two seasons, Klopp is certainly not one to rest on his laurels and be content.

      “There is still a lot of work to do and a lot of space for improvement.

      “You see our games and result wise it looks okay but performance-wise there is a lot of space for improvement. 

      “That is what we work on and try constantly through the week.

      “Result consistency is maybe difficult to improve because that is close to perfection, obviously, but it is possible to improve the performances in all departments. 

      “There are so many things you can improve that that will never end.”

    • This will become a worry soon. Fucking Ludogorets players travelling to the San Siro stadium with face masks on. Its all becoming a bit hysterical; some more reported cases in the UK and all bets are off. Got to get this wrapped up in the coming weeks. Bomb out the Cup and get this wrapped up in the next 3 weeks.
