    Tresco, local boy... he's doing very well, batting brilliantly... as an actual captain he could be better, Freddie has had to go and advise on the field placements himself, but he's not our top choice anyway.

    Freddie did well too, but got out a bit cheaply, would rather have seen a 200+ lead... but I guess I have no right to complain with the match as it is.

    Vaughn is missed actually, he's the best captain in the world, and Collingwood is the person replacing him, and he only got 10 I think... chances are he'd have got more. But we're still in a great position.

    It's nice that Pakistan are going for the win, they need to stay positive or the match wont be interesting... but their next few batsmen are crucial as they have no tail at all...

    200 lead... I think England can chase that... we'd be on 190-9 though and just scrape it.

    Andy Roddicks game plan: try and serve the ball as fast as you can and hit as hard as possible.

    BRILLIANT
    a) How do you know that is his tactics are you his coach?

    b) If they were his tactics he wins far more matches with that tactic...

    c) His serve is not something that you just decide to do one day! its bloody impressive and his forehand to match!

    like the other guy said what makes Andy Murray so great?? sports based on results not saying "hes this or that".WINNING is what makes a player great.Whats Andy Murray won? Think uve been listening to the british media a bit too much. After all if you had no knowledge of tennis and switched on wimbledon while tim henman was playing, you could eaily mistake him for being the best player of his generation? And whats he won of any significance in his career? NOTHING.

    Right now andy murray is a decent prospect but nothing more.he has potential for sure, but potential doesnt mean anything unless its used. if he was spanish or some other nationality you would never have heard of him.for every great player theres always 50 that "had potential" or "could have been"

    Night watchman, just like England used Hoggie right up the order...

    Good batting from Pakistan, but now the big man (literally) is out... Butt was run out just after his 100 and it wasn't given, it better not cost us. :mad:

    We can chase anything they get really, they only have 4 people who can bat at all left from the 7. So we only need 3 big wickets... or even better get all the good ones out and have tailers at either end.

    Just came back from a hectic soccer training session, 2 hours of interval running.

    Ive also been boxing for about 2 years. And wehn i started i found out that the cliche that boxers run long distance all the time is totally wrong. Since then i have been taught to interval run.

    i was wondering if any of you do any martial arts, or sport, and do regular running? where do you go? hills? mountains? beach? what kind of runnign technique do you use?

    i do the following.

    monday/wednesday/saturday: interval running type #1 and #2. (15 minutes of each.)
    type#1: 10 seconds sprinting, 10 seconds jogging, repeat.
    type#2: 10 seconds slow jog, 10 seconds run, 10 seconds sprint. repeat.

    tuesday/friday: hill running. elevation 1.1 km, distance 4 km.

    New horse was mad when he arrived. Rearing, ramming into people, charging off, etc. Threw his full weight against the stable door before we could bolt it and sent the yard owner flying. People on the yard were watching and when he pulled up the wagon was rocking from side to side and you could hear him screaming inside.

    Thank god he's settled down now!

    What are you using him for? Just hacking/fun or competing? Sounds a bit skitty, but I suppose a new stables does usually make them nervous.

    Ah Yes. Firey Chargers. How well I rememebr... it took about 4 or 5 people to gte my horse (before he was mine) onto the lorry to get him here. He then spent 2 months throwing continual tantrums. Luckily he's better now. I mean he still throws tantrums. I'm just better at dodging!!

    Its alright if you have the money, unfortunately the rest of us just have to make do
    I didn't even mean that really, whilst it's fab to have my own horse I just miss my instructor really, and knowing the horses and being able to actually have a fun lesson where you can mess abotu a bit but learn at the same time. This deadly serious dressage. No 'Lilly, that-was-so-incredibly-crap-that-you're-going-to-do-it-again-and-if-you-don't-get-it-right-this-time-you-WILL-be-jumping-minus-your-saddle.' It's fun. It's just the atmosphere and the people and the...everything!! I'd rather just have lessons at my yard than have my own horse at that one.

    On of our yards girls has gone to work in America :eek: At a big eventing yard and she's going to get to compete loads and be in charge of stuff and generally have a good time. Whereas I'm reading about medical negligence. Life is unfair.

    God, at least he isn't that bad! lol. Glad to hear yours settled down though. I'm off to the yard soon to see how he is.

    I wish I still had lessons too, they were always so much fun. Can't remember the last time I had to trot without stirrups!

    He's really unfit at the minute so I'll be getting him fit until the spring, then I'm not sure. I was going to do showjumping on him but I think I may see if I have the guts to try eventing him. He is a bit skitty but I can see that he'd have a good attitude for competing (as long as he doesn't act like that every time he comes off a lorry!)

    just a correction.

    the decison of salman butt run out was not out and given rightly and naseer hussain proved it at the break.



    some newspapers have gone bonkers, english media is quite known to whine alot.

    another reason

    The Butt Run Out - Correct Decision

    Stop crying Allott, the bails were broken by Geraint Jones' lower arm, before he had full control of the ball.

    Well done Asad Rauf, correct decision made.



    check what those idiots at guardian have to say about it.

    and Butt is run out. Except the third umpire says he isn't. That is a truly appalling decision! The bails were out of their groove when Jones collected Paul Collingwood's throw, but somehow Butt has survived. Is that the decision that will cost England victory? Staggering!

    71st over: Pakistan 240-3 (Salman Butt 102, Inzamam 57) The third umpire is a chap called Asad Rauf, who happens to be a Pakistani. Now I'm not for one moment suggesting any bias - please be quite clear on that. But surely the third umpires should be neutral as well, just to avoid even the implication. What is the point of having TV umpires if they can't even make simple decisions like that based on numerous replays? One run off that Flintoff over.

    Are they livid or what?!



    More whinging from the Guardian reporter.

    74th over: Pakistan 246-3 (Salman Butt 102, Inzamam 62) Butt has gone into his shell against Giles, although I'm sure it has nothing to do with a guilty conscious. After all, it wasn't him who gave himself not out after blatantly failing to make his ground in the first over after lunch. I'm still catching my breath at the ineptitude of that decision. The only reason I can give for it is that third umpire Rauf thought the bails were not dislodged, even though the stumps were broken. If that is the case, the bails were probably defying gravity. "Well well, it seems we've had what might be described by an old man as 'not the rub of the green' and by me as 'a total disgrace'," writes Guy Hornsby. "Shakoor Rana where are you?"
