England cricketers taking penalties

Alastair Cook fails to keep it down for once

Worst. Collection of nicknames. Everrrrrr.

You can watch England’s cricketers taking penalties here. We’d have put the video on this page, but there isn’t a YouTube option small enough. A site redesign is probably in the offing, but really, how often do we feature videos? It can wait.

The video’s worth watching to hear Graeme Swann accidentally pointing out why these guys are better than ‘our boys’ in South Africa.

6 Appeals

  1. Does it really constitute a nickname if they’re just putting the suffix -y on the end of every name?

    Whatever happened to the days of ‘The Cat’ and ‘Beefy’?

  2. What do they do if someone’s name already ends in a -y?

    You remove it, probably. Or replace it with an S – “Yards,” for example.

    Special correspondent Dad is convinced that Martin Saggers’ nickname is ‘Sagnew’.

  4. I used to know two Australians, one from Queensland, one from NSW. They were insistent that in one state, “o” was added, and in the other “y”. Unfortunately I can’t remember which way around it was. That along with the facts that this has nothing to do with England and that this wasn’t a very good anecdote in the first place makes me wish I hadn’t started this at all

    Incomplete anecdotes that just sort of trail off are the best ones.

    Ask any of our friends.

  6. Who was in goal?
