England win, England lose, life goes on

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

When you win, all’s well. The captain says that you played well as a unit while adding a cautionary note: “We are not yet the finished article.”

When you lose, he talks about processes and learning curves. Lose a few in a row and he might even pull out the phrase ‘transitional period’.

What we’re trying to say here is that sometimes you have to go to the pub before you know who’s won.


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. Anyone follow the bbc live text. Why are the people that text in such morons. You get woakes is shit then good then shit again. Broad should be bowling then he gets tonked and he should never play odi again. It’s terrible.

  2. This is just a pathetic attempt to distract us from what’s really going on. England win a couple, you tell some story about eating money and England being good at ODIs, and lo – England get hammered twice running.

    You did this, idiot. Just you, and your outlandish proclamations. Don’t hide from the truth with win some lose some crap.

    1. We’re considering arguing that we predicted this and that the money-eating story was some sort of opaque parable.

  3. “You have to stand up and be a man. You’ve got knocked down; you have to get yourselves back up, dust yourselves down and go again.”
    Batting coach Graham Thorpe primes England for the decider after two loses.

    Something not quite right there but I can’t put my fingers on it.
