    Russel Brand

    The latest hugely funny comment from this moron who hopes to influence the younger generation. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2896125/Russell-Brand-calls-Labour-s-Ed-Balls-clicky-wristed-snidey-c-foul-mouthed-rant-Channel-4.html Honestly, just have a whip round for the diesel and I'll...

    FC - Season 25

    Opening the season with a throw from the opposition. Lost the toss which is expensive as it looks like I'll be done in one day so will lose gate receipts (with the gate already down as usual in the early season). The players are off the field for the change of innings. End of Over 16...

  4. The Toss

    B, Been following the ME thread. As someone asked, can you break down the games by Pitch Type and/or weather. Could give us all a bit of an advantage...:winking:

    OD - Season 24

    First of 4 games against Akichita that will define our season. Nadeeka left so we're a bowler and batsman down. Currently deciding whether to sit on my warchest or go for a promotion push. Keping a beady eye on the transfer market. Lost the toss today but despite an early wicket we've...

    Will Mohsni/Hall leaving mean we can bring players in on loan.

    We have spent so much time in threads, concerning ourselves with the futures of Mohsni and Hall. I don't want to seem cold-hearted or indifferent but as far as I am concerned, if they are not going to play for us anymore, I don't give a toss about them. My club is Southend United and that is...
  7. If You Was Captain!?

    If you won the toss at the start of game would you shoot towards the north bank in the second half? I know i would as thats where our noisy fans are based and it stops crewe shooting infront of there fans second half

    4th Officials

    What is the point of these people? Surely the responsibilty to show the subs board and additional minutes board can be done by anyone. Surely managers are capable of behaving themselves without this guy. And who give a toss about technical areas when you can have a player/coach running the...

    FC - Match 5

    Queens Park CC v ShrimperZone CC Made a mess of the toss today, thought it was Monday so based it on tomorrow's weather. Won it and am now batting in PCH with sunny tomorrow :dunce: No disasters as yet though and if this game turns out to be the draw I'm expecting then at least we'll...

    OD - Week 6

    The Spankers v ShrimperZone CC 5th v 6th but I'm on a dreadful run of 5 straight defeats. Desperately need a win to get the morale out of it's slump ahead of FC next week. Won the toss and a decent start in sunny conditions, though we just dropped their star batsman. End of Over 8: 22-1...

    FC Match 4

    Tough away game for me against 5th place. Joint top is playing divvy whipping boys. Hoping to win the toss and bat. Have rested one bowler and bat for this due to PFL but still a strong seam line up on a green pitch. Easy OD on Friday and BT 20 next week mean all is set for an outside chance of...

    FC - Match 3

    Bob's Buffoons v ShrimperZone CC Overwhelming favourite for the division with a massive wage bill and squad to counter PFL issues. Gutted it's not at home to take advantage of my OTM confidence. For me to get anything from the game was going to mean winning the toss with PCH today and then...

    OD Match 1

    We can tell you that Duckers XI won the toss and elected to field. The pitch is looking slow and low. Tough for everyone. Could be a low scoring match on this sunny day. Let’s join our team for ball-by-ball commentary. End of Over 27: 116-1, runrate=4.30 Hooper 6-0-28-0 Sobers* 60 (82...
  14. FC - Match 6

    Here All Week (5th) v BATTY SHRIMPERS (1st) Chance to extend our 13 point lead at the top of the table. We should win this game well inside 2 days. Rested Lindop and Andre, even though both are at Sublime PFL, and have re-jigged the batting order as well. We can tell you that Here All Week won...

    OD - Week 6

    8th toss lost out of 9 and yet again we're batting first which in a tight game is generally a death knell. Though Sini has started well and losing Lamo may be a blessing as his slow innings cost us last week. Legendary Knights v ShrimperZone CC We can tell you that Legendary Knights won the...

    FC - Match 3

    Playing one of my usual many games against Gatley. I think I would have had enough to beat them had I won the toss and fielded a full line up with sun today and PCH the next two days but as I said I was throwing the season it would be a bit unfair to suddenly field a full line up. And we lost...
  17. OD - Week 3

    Marsh Harriers (7th) v BATTY SHRIMPERS (8th) Basement battle between the 2 pointless sides. Could do with a win, otherwise we might have to prioritise BT20 after our 3 wins this week :smiles: Left out Andre to try and save some PFL, but he'll come back in for Lindop on Sunday. Flat pitch and...

    FC - Week 1

    Off we go again and I have a great game to start with :unsure: Parkway Sports v ShrimperZone CC Yep, last season's double winners to start and with UGTF and Brianstoke to come next week it's about as tough a start as it gets. We won a good toss with sunny weather due tomorrow but I can't see...

    OD - Week 8

    Up Goes The Finger v ShrimperZone CC I sense a 300+ score is going to be needed to win today, solid start but need to up the pace. We can tell you that Up Goes The Finger won the toss and elected to field. The pitch is looking like a road. As flat as a pancake. No help for the bowlers on this...
