Now I know that Peter Fitness and others down there in Aus have not stopped laughing yet, but after a day in which the British Governments cabinet became made up of more non elected people than elected, making a mockery of the word, democracy, English Cricket really did die.

Beaten by a team that only has 6 grass pitches in it's country and sports 6000 mainly amateur players, the might of England were humled by the Dutch (or is it Netherlands....I never know the difference!!). The Dutch were magnificent, played like their lives depended on it, a credit to their country and their flag. England on the otherhad were woeful. There should be a shirt burning ceremony this morning at Lords, followed by a Memorial Service for a game that has truely and finally died...............................

Barry, I didn't see your post earlier, but I'm not laughing.......honest
Australia got beaten, too, but it's only 20-20, not REAL cricket, and now our boys can concentrate on the ASHES

Bring it on.

Peter,

Now that I am really looking forward to. Reckon your lot are favourites, but you never can tell. Modelling will have to take a back seat for that.

blimey, Peter is it a year ago since we got into a tirade of abuse against each other over the stately game, lol
 
Are you ready for more of the same matey,  lol
 
I'll start , by saying there's no truth in the rumour that we're bringing back Boycott and Botham to give your lads  a chance.

Botham would be good, I used to love watching him play, but NOT Boycott - he was far too boring.
 
I can take it, Neil, I've got broad shoulders, and a thick skin (to say nothing of my head ). I'm not too cocky this time, either, I reckon the teams are fairly even, although it would be a blow for England if Pietersen doesn't play. It should be a good series.

Peter.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
