Be A Man

Injuries happen to the best of us. We've all been there. Stubbed a toe. Hit a funny bone. Sprained an ankle on a night out....

But the England team has had a horror attack of the injury train.

Same thing has happened to the England rugby team. But that's rugby. It's meant for injuries. Huge men, running at each other, it's a given that people will get hurt.

But cricket?

There is no physical contact. All that's required is some running, a bit of throwing, holding a bat, avoiding being hit on the head (or face, no Ricky, NWG has not forgotten the state of your lip at the Oval) by the ball.

James Anderson has a bad knee.
Stuart Broad has hurt his shoulder.
Alastair Cook has a bad back.
Paul Collingwood also has a bad back.
Graeme Swann has done something to his muscles in his ribcage.

Looking at the state of that list, England's tour in South Africa does not look good.

What can be done to protect the cricketer? Some say they play too much of the game and it's bound to happen that players will get injuries. But that's not true.

The England team need to stop being whiny. So your shoulder hurts? Get over it. Run it off. Think about something else. Be a man. Pull yourself together (and any other platitudes anyone else can think of).

Your country needs you.

Who knows, someone Asian may get a game now.

Or they need a good physio...

Stani Army said...

....yeh, they probably went for the bad Caucasian one instead of the good Asian one right :)

Thanks for the comment response by the way! Makes a change.

They've been playing football to warm up again, NWG. I thought you told them to stop that?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG tries to help England with some common sense but do they listen? No. And who do they have to blame? Themselves.

Hang your head in shame England.


Stani Army said...

...only because it's the best game in the world.


The Nightwatchgirl said...

Who's Irons Stani?

Stani Army said...


What kind of London girl are you? I disown you Nightmare....that was poor.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG would like to disclose which football team she supports, but that may be giving away too much information. Needless to say, she doesn't support West Ham. Sorry Stani.

Stani Army said...

It's Charlton everyone.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG will say two things:

1. It's not a london team.]

2. And no, it's not Man Utd.

Stani Army said...


Ok glory hunter, which is it? I've gone through every team but cannot find a player that looks like Matthew Hoggard.

I assume it's a midlands team right? Must be a team Hoggard supports.

I knew you was a fake Londoner. Booooo. You're probably not even a English cricket fan.....or even a girl. I think you're some filthy fat bloke with a laptop trying to trap innocent boys like me. Well? Come clean whatever your name is.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG is a born and bred londoner and she can assure you Stani that she is indeed a girl. You've seen the picture with her and Matthew Hoggard, remember?

And her football team has nothing to do with the Matthew Hoggard. Just to be clear - she's not that crazy.

Stani Army said...

Born and bred Londoner and you didnt know West Ham are also known as the Irons? Not an avid football follower are we my dear?

That pic with you and Hoggard dont prove anything. That coulda been anyone.

Am I detecting the fact that youre getting over Hoggard? Woooohoooo! Can I take the credit for that? Please?

Ok, if its not a team in London then there's a reason other than it being your home team that you support them. Can you give me that reason so I can carry on guessing. Also, are they in the premier league?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

They are in the premiere league. That's all you're getting...

Stani Army said...

A boring one like Villa or Bolton?

I'm not playing this game any more. You aint giving me enough clues :P

Can't you just tell me the first 3 letters and the last 9?

Just questioning if eBay makes it possible for you to market [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] on the internet? Do you know if you can find any restrictions depending on what country you are in?

My parents have just known as me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to some concert as they wont have the ability to make it because of an additional family event.

Apart from asking close friends etc, i thought ebay would be a fantastic place to market them.

But whats ebay's policy on promoting tickets? Ive heard alot about it on the news but ive forgotten what happened.

and if it matters, the concert is inside of this coming month

Thanks in advance for your advice.
