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.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  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. 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

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

    Ask any of our friends.
