Wow

No words.

Ian Bell - hero.

Graham Onions - hero.

Paul Collingwood - hero.

Graeme Swann - hero.

England you rule.

What an end.

Words, these are words Nightmare.

yes alright. Thanks Stani. NWG wasn't being literal.

Stani Army said...

I know....but you should have known with me around....

By the way. What you think of Swanny as vice captain? I woulda said captain but Straussy a good chap. Swanny's got that cockiness about him no? Cook? I mean come on? They're even sending Cooky for press interviews just to get everyone used to him. Sly.

By making Cooky vice-captain, they're basically saying to him that your gonna be picked no matter what.

I think 'you rule' may be just a little out of context when snatching a draw.

Was exciting though (even in Tesco's car-park at -5C)

Onions Colly Swann - Heroes

About time Bell did some work!

Rob- come off it. It was bloody brilliant. NWG wasn't going to watch it and then she got sucked in and couldn't move from where she was sitting for about 2 hours.

Those last few overs were the longest in history.

Stani - Swanny for vice-captain is inspired. NWG thinks he will be brilliant, way better than Cook.

Rob said...

I went into Tescos thinks we had already drawn and came out to find we were about to lose. Every little helps.

SixSixEight said...

Swanny for captain, Staussy is a bit Tim nice but dim.

Swanny definitely for vice captain. Cook is just dim.

Stani Army said...

Yeah, I'm serious. The opposition would hate him because he's got that get-under-the-skin-ability.

....and he'll be called for interviews and press conferences more, and Swanny does love those.

....and it would get choir boy off our screens.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

It's decided then. Swann is officially England vice-captain.

NWG will inform the ECB immediately.

Stani Army said...

Can you change the weather for me too Nightmare? I do like the snow because you can shove it down people's backs, and it does look lovely outside when it glows at night, but it means I can't go play footy. So if you could just turn it off on Thursdays....and maybe the weekend, and put it back on again for the rest of the week for me? I appreciate it.

SixSixEight said...

Good luck NWG!!!!

You have changed your tune Stani - not so long ago you would not have it that Swanny was even a bowler!

He is the new Flintoff, and I hazard a guess - better at captaincy. I shall die if we have to sit through eyeliner boy making us wallow stupidly in the field. At least if it happens with Swanny I'll know that I only have myself and you lot to blame.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Stani - NWG will try and organise the weather, but to be honest she thinks you have severely overestimated her powers.

Swann bowls? Even better! No, I still hate his guts and his punchable face hasn't turned unpunchable over night, it's just that I'd do pretty much anything to be in Nightmares good books :)

Nightmare
So it's not true then? The cape? The 'NWG' on your chest? The unidentified flying object above cricket grounds where England are losing? The ghostly hand that came out of the sea to tip over Freddy's pedalo? The mysterious force that made Morne Morkel bowl the last ball of the 3rd Test a metre outside off stump so Onions could leave it? Is this not you? You know what? Don't tell me, I'm heartbroken.
