    Does it have to be partnership? To extend it a little, the greatest fast bowling unit of all time was Holding, Roberts, Garner and Croft (not forgetting Marshall, Ambrose and Walsh coming through). Does anyone disagree? I can't see how. :p:

    Yeah that does my head in bro.

    Calzaghe is good, and has the skills to be the best, but he needs to fight better opponents. He had a contract signed to fight Jeff Lacy to see who was the king of the division, but it has now fell through because of his broken hand. Lacy is accusing him of being scared and using it an excuse, and Calzaghe is saying he wants to fight him more than ever. Hopefully a fight for February.

    Amir Khan is a good boxer with a lot of speed, but i think he is more suited to the amateur game. The guy he fought lives in my town. It will be interesting to see him fight strong punchers, and fight opponents with winning records. Personally i don't rate him yet, but he has a long time to prove himself so hopefully he will be.

    I just hope Frank Warren puts him against the best fighters and doesn't just use him.

    It will be nice to see if he can take a big shot to the chin aswell.

    400 : 49.5
    Thats fast! One of my best mates does 400m and his could run in around 50-52s. In year 11 he was 2nd best in county, probably the best now. Now he changed to 800m though, dunno why.

    Anyone do any interesting Martial arts, i am 1st kyu in Karate, 3rd Kyu in judo and 2nd Kyu in Aikido, this evening i am starting Tae kwon Do, should be fun? anyone able to tell me what its like?
    i used to do Karate (Shotokan)

    i was 2 belts off a black belt then i moved which was really annoying! I tried joining other clubs, but i didn't like it, it was a bit too male dominated.

    i think i might take it back up when i go to uni as they have a shotokan society. I really fancy doing kick boxing as well

    Any "fighting system" is impractical.

    Well, I'm just gonna say one thing and that is GO TO A GOOD SCHOOL! I assume, anyway, that with your experiene in the martial arts you will have picked a good school. But, I know people who 'think' that they're a 1st dan black belt in Shotokan and I tell you what.... they couldn't kick a chickens arse. There have to be high standards in any class for your belts to really be valid, in my opinion.

    As for Taekwondo, I would never go for it because I've got shoddy knees and I simply wouldn't be able to take the strain of the kicks. So, yeah, it helps that all your lower-body joints are in good nick..... obviously.

    Sorry, that's probably all info for beginners.

    I've never had first hand experience of Taekwondo.

    Speaking of sledging, a good one from Jimmy Ormond of Surrey:

    Mark Waugh, "You're not good enough to be playing for your country, mate."
    Ormond, "Maybe not, but at least I'm the best player in my family."

    One of the horses at the yard was sold this week and Jo delivered him on Saturday. The people that bought him have all their children at private school but don't want to pay livery fees, and said they had a paddock (and a stable, I think) behind their house so they'd keep him there. There is no stable and the paddock is their back garden!! It has a trampoline in it and a swing. What on earth were they thinking??
