Breaking News

Another Englishman will play instead of Bopara.

His name is Trott and he's English. Alright?

English, NWG tells you.

Totally from England.

Ok. You've got it out of NWG.

He was born in South Africa.

Big deal.

And?

Just thought I'd remind you.

Much appreciated. But being English shouldn't automatically qualify you for England duty. There should be no restrictions when it comes to putting on those bright whites. So your born in another country? So what?

When was Forest Gate not in London? London being the capital of our fair English Nation.

Ravi is a geezer - are you thinking of Shah who was born in Karachi?

Anyway Trotty is fab! And if he is in it's trading Saffer for Saffer [KP's missing spot] - as it should have been at the last test. He should also get on with Andy 'Saffer' Strauss.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

No, NWG was talking about Trott. NWG knows Ravi is London born and bred - just like her.

Christopher Poshin David said...

Why does English have so many South Africans playing for them???

Christopher Poshin David said...

And Ravi's parents are from india I believe.........

Stani Army said...

Why do the Asians in the England side always get a raw deal? Cook has done f-all but he still makes it. No mention of how rubbish Cook is NMG?

At least you can be happy that you got what you wanted hey?

(This comment will be ignored as usual)

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Stani - ahhh, are you feeling all ignored? NWG is not Cook's biggest fan. That's never been a secret. But Cook has at least made some runs this series. Bopara has not. He looks frightened and out of his depth. But NWG is not discounting him forever. She knows he could be a great batsman. Now may just not be his time.

And, NWG loves Shah. She agrees with you Stani, that he has definitely had a raw deal.

Stani Army said...

Amazing! He gets her to respond.

Yes NMG. When NMG disagrees with people, she ignores them. It's easier to ignore than having to agree with something you don't want to. NMG is an expert at this.

When Bell came in, why didn't they move Ravi to 4 and put Bell in at 3? Surely this was obvious because when Cook the ladyboy gets out early, Ravi has to come in like he's opening. Fair? No. But the twats do it for Trott don't they? Geoff Miller is a dog....the dog from the Churchill ads....he looks exactly like him doesn't he? Ohhh yessss!

It's not just Shah NMG, be honest. Or do I have to work on your honesty as well? It goes back a long way. I will let you know when I have a bit of time.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Get out of the wrong side of bed this morning, Stani? Chill the hell out.

Stani Army said...

???
I'm chilled. You?

My bed's against a wall....impossible to get out of the wrong side.

D Charlton said...

Cook made 95 at Lord's and set up a win in the first session of that game - that's why he's still in the side.

And Stani you are a bit mean to NWG, especially with your nickname...

I support you NWG - more cosmopolitan our team the better.

Stani Army said...

DC,
Cook and Bopara have the same average over the last 12 innings. You mention Cook's 95, by the same token, has anyone, NMG included, mentioned the awful decision Bopara got in his last innings? YES it makes a difference. If he scored a 95 it woulda shut everyone up (or maybe not). But no one says anything about that. Would you have used that 95 to defend Bopara? I doubt it.

How you can defend Cook's selection and his recent FORM is quite sad really.

"more cosmopolitan our team the better"???? That is what I'm arguing for!

I'm not mean to NMG and she knows that. It's good to debate. What's the point of having a blog where everyone agrees? She's a big girl from South London, I'm sure she knows how to handle herself.

...and there's nothing wrong with 'Nightmaregirl'. If NMG didn't like me using it she would have said. In fact, she once called my play with names 'inspired', so there!

The Nightwatchgirl said...

D - NWG really appreciates your kind words. Stani is a mean bully (only joking Stani). NWG thinks he has a secret crush on Bopara and that's why he's so upset. She also suspects he's very jealous of Cook's long lashes.

Stani - you can buy fake eyelashes now and have them dyed. You too can look Cook-like.

Stani Army said...

NMG,
Errr wrong! I actually have a secret crush on you which by the middle of this sentence has cease to become 'secret'. But, ever since you told us about your love for Hoggard, I've had to disagree and argue with everything you say....as a means of dissenting see? So there, not so secret anymore is it? Now you know why I hate your guts.

When I'm a famous cricketer too, I bet you'll come running after me then won't you scumbag? Typical.

Why would I be jealous of Cookies lashes? My dimples do me just fine thank you very much.

.....and tell Cookie you can't buy fake dimples!

D Charlton said...

NWG - he really loves Bopara ... That's a huge crush.

And Mr Army, if Bopara had scored 95 at Headingley i would have been delighted and defended him completely. He's a great player to watch and he'll come again - i think everyone in the world would prefer to see a Bopara hundred than a Cook hundred - uggh - it is just a Cook hundred is a tiny bit more likely at present. And only a tiny bit.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Stani - NWG is blushing.

Stani Army said...

DC,
I stick up for Bopara because he's from my hood. The same way that NWG sticks up for you because .... because Charlton is in south London where she's from.

NMG,
Too late now isn't it? You've missed your opportunity. I've given the second in line, Katie Melua, a chance now. Don't worry, there's no need to get suicidal and jump in the Thames. Maybe another opportunity will come your way in the future if I change my mind. Until then, you'll have to watch me at book signings, on tv or at the ground. I do hope the stewards do their job though.

Stani - sob.
