  3. The old thread's disappeared, so here's a brand new thread for discussing storms and convective activity on the European mainland, which do not directly affect the UK... A coupe of useful links for storm tracking http://www.estofex.org http://www.sat24.com http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime today certainly is a busy day for storms on the continent with some lively storms over the western med heading towards the Italian coast

    Hurricane Michael

    blimey, am watching the ABC feed in a hotel and just saw the roof get blown off and down onto a couple of SUV's
  5. if the GFS is correct, walk out sunday morning and you'll end up landing somewhere near Denmark!

    apart from the 'fast bowler' bit....lol......if he's a 'quickie', then there's still chance of a call up for me then...lol....an excellent first series for him, but I reckon he'll be a batting all-rounder, at least for the forseeable future as on flat tracks, he'll be cannon fodder for good batting sides...he needs a yard of pace and the art of bowling cutters etc to develop further as a test bowler.....I reckon his brother's a better bet as a test bowler, Tom has something of a 'dale steyn' about him

    even when amassing a probable match winning lead, england still manage a collapse....lol....321/2 to 356/6....rather academic in the grander scheme of things but still made me chuckle......Cook batted superbly, and I wonder given england's top order plight whether the selectors will kidnap him, & bundle him in the back of a plane bound for sril lanka

    off the top of my head....Greg Chappell did it, not sure about any others without looking it up

    Wilson is an abysmal umpire.....useless in the last test as 3rd umpire and has had two lbw howlers in two overs.....he needs to go back to umpiring school....lol

    jeez, yet another shambolic collapse....england/'s 'batsmen' are a laughing stock, and without a shadow of doubt the worst test batting line up in england's test history.....thank god we have quality bowlers.....184/7

    and the 4th wicket goes down as Bairstow goes for yet another duck, he's going through a very bad run at the mo, and england will yet again have to rely on the lower middle order to try and dig themselves out of the trouble they're now in.....pitch looks flat, so a lot of work to do

    Cookie out for a well compiled 71, then Root falls for a duck.....from a position of strength, england are tring to throw it all away, and Root's argument about feeling better batting at 4 look a bit suspect now.....he needs to give up the captaincy, it's affecting his batting and he's not a particularly good captain....Eng need Buttler as captain

    Starting to think that abysmal 3rd umpire has cost eng this test and who knows the series...eng desperately need a breakthrough as these 2 have put on nearly a hundred

    Who is the 3rd umpire?....who ever it is, is clueless....moeen traps kholi bang in front and somehow the 3rd umpire with the replays thinks kholi has hit it when it's blatantly obvious that his bat hit the pad...shocking umpiring from the tv umpire who is the one man who should never get it wrong....England robbed
  17. just seen on the bbc website that U2's berlin concert was cut short due to concerns over Bono's voice........surprised it's taken them 35 years to realise how crap he is at singing....lol

    good days cricket today.....just got home from a long drive with work but listened to TMS all day.....well done Moeen, a super spell of bowling (not forgetting a valuable supporting knock with the bat) and England after a disappointing first innings with the bat now hold the destiny of this test match (and series) in their hands.....If they bat well and bat all day tomorrow they will be in a match winning position.....bat poorly and get skittled tomorrow and we'll be looking at a series decider at the oval.... weatherguru, do you genuinely think that Flintoff was over-rated are are you posting for reaction?......genuine question, as to think Freddie was over-rated infers a basic lack of knowledge in the game to be frank, or perhaps in your world, the 2005 ashes never happened?

    I disagree, over a lengthy period of matches, averages are not misleading at all, he has one century and 5 fifties in his last 10 matches (17 innings) ,,,hardly a case of failing way too many times so your comment that his batting has been 'vitually non-existent' is wrong....Stokes is a number 6 no question at all IMO
  20. beerandkebab

    Cricket - Summer Season 2015 and onwards

    over his last 10 test matches, his batting average has been identical to his test career average (source cricinfo) i.e 34......I disagree with your assumption that Stokes is 'protected' he is a proven test match player who IMO is as good technically as any other batsman in England

    Stokes out.....jeez h christ, what another absolutely abysmal collapse.....an utter disgraceful effort from england and quite frankly they should donate their collective match fees to charity as the players simply don't deserve to get paid for this shambolic test match performance

    and we have the predictable collapse.....*sigh*

    173/4 at tea with some proper test match batting from Stokes & Buttler....Still a huge mountain to climb, but nice to see some defiance.....Moeen's just smacked a double ton, so I'd expect him to come in for Bairstow and his bowling will add some variation to the attack and give respite to Anderson & Broad a bit

    both openers gone after just 15 mins of play....oh dear, humiliation awaits for England unless someone can play the innings of their life......Jennings is a waste of space,his techique is so bad, and surely now, Cook's days are numbered, a great servant to English cricket over the past 14 years, but his record is going downhill rapidly now.....the only problem is that there is no-one who can replace him!
