England won something. They actually beat a string of teams to win an actual trophy.

They are world Twenty20 champions.

They thrashed Australia.

KP was man of the tournament.

There is simply too much good news, NWG can't take it.

But she would like to reiterate that she predicted England would win about a week ago. And she was right.

NWG is happy.

NWG is finally satisfied that England managed to deliver.

Mare, you should be glad that KP got out otherwise people would have said that England won the final without an Englishman scoring a run....and you can't get more English than Paul Cauliflower.

MWilson said...

Yes,the WC is ours finally.This is for all of the fans to savour who have been with England no matter what.
Well done England!!
I was wondering whether we will need Straussy when he returns.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

MWilson, England will always need Strauss, even if, like James Anderson, he sits quietly on the sidelines and chews his nails.

Stani - NWG declares KP a complete Englishman. His reaction when Collingwood hit the winning runs was genuine.

Stani Army said...

Noo Mare,
That is the reaction of a man tasting victory. It has nothing to do with his Englishness.

I believe you though (clears throat)....I was just highlighting what some people may say, that's all.

Stani Army said...

...and leave Jimmy alone

Dear Ms NWG,
After all the anguish England finally have a trophy. At least for tonight who cares where they came from.
Next , the Ashes. But beware the wounded jackal...
Congrats to all you England supporters.

"NWG declares KP a complete Englishman. His reaction when Collingwood hit the winning runs was genuine."

No, he just wanted to make sure he got on camera at the right moment.

Unknown said...

NWG do you realise Sideshow Bob is also a World Cup winner? Who would have thought heh.

Stani Army said...

Did you watch the women's final Mare? The Aussies won it.

And no, I wasn't perving like you do with the men's cricket.

Good Cricket Wicket said...

Wow, people still don't like KP. Let me put the cat among the pigeons:

Kevin Pietersen is a better team player for England than Andrew Flintoff ever was.

Let the controversy commence.

P.S. NWG, what did I say about optimism?

The Nightwatchgirl said...


OK now that's out of NWG's system.

Ben - you are more cynical than NWG. That is an achievement in itself. And no, in her eyes, Ryan is still rubbish.

Stani - no NWG didn't see the women's final because she was emotionally exhausted.

GCW - You are bold with your statements. Let's see just how much beer KP can hold and whether there is a pedalo involved as this is the direct measurement for true Englisheness.

Unknown said...

G. Swann seems to agree with you.

Swannyg66: I'm off to find a pedalo!

Unknown said...

Your prediction happened to come true, but you would have had more chance of picking England to win the football WC and they have bugger all chance of doing that.

Stani Army said...

Well I did tell you to get the woo out of your system but you didn't listen did you? A typically frugal NWG. Yes, Stani notices.

with the last ball bowled, and the victory finally confirmed, my first thought was of you going "... wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo..."

It seems I was right. :)

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Chinaman - how NWG has missed you. And yes, you were completely right - NWG was wooing at the top of her voice.

Ben, NWG knows what you are trying to do - make her say that England will win the WC so they win the WC? Well she won't, football is vastly inferior and frankly below NWG's system of caring.

Ben - NWG is psychic. Fact.

nice to know was missed.
I have been around - always just an email away from friends.
