We never sing. We never dance.

What do you think then? You think that it’s ‘much the same’ don’t you? You’d be right.

Why not test out the comments though by offering a thought or two. Ideally not all of those thoughts would be negative, but we’re man enough to accept our punishment.

Also, don’t forget to subscribe again – or for the first time, if you’ve never made the plunge.


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. Nice shading on the banner. Ooh, the cricket ball says “KC” on it! Am I too easily pleased? Probably.

  2. Bloody hell.. This is all grown up, like I should be…. You’ve made me feel like I’m ten years old again!

    Ah, off to play army in the woods with sticks.. Those were the days, none of those fancy WEE’s when I were a lad.. The only wee’s we ever did were in a camp, that had a hole, called the piss and shit middle bit.

    I was a 10yr old rebel, as you can probably gather from my off the cuff use of foul and abusive language.

    Oops, I better make sure my mum’s not reading this, or I’ll be sent to bed with no supper, and I’ll have my transformers confiscated. And that would not be wicked.

  3. Also, instead of this “Your comment is awaiting moderation” rubbish, could it not be changed to “awaiting decision from the video umpire/3rd umpire), or some such?

  4. Very nice, but I feel the need to check – will the Blue Box be making an appearance on this swish new site? It’s the reason I visit.

    I’ve never commented before, but that was worth waiting for wasn’t it?

  5. You think I’d go to all this trouble only to renounce the blue box?

    The blue box is raring to go.

  6. As long as this new fangled upgrade doesn’t lead to any actual analysis of cricket, then I’m happy enough.

  7. Ooh I say, as Richie Benaud used to say.

    Oh bugger. It was Dan Maskell.


    Oh well. Still liking the nice new grown up site anyway. Surprised there are no pics/shrines for Mr Key, though…

  8. Oooooooooooooh.

  9. Try this page Rosie.

    If you’ve got Firefox, click ‘subscribe using live bookmarks’ and it’ll appear in your favourites, listing all the post titles when you hover over it and showing you at a glance if we’ve updated.

    If you’ve got a newer version of Internet Explorer it’ll have a ‘subscribe’ option at the top of the page that will accomplish much the same thing.

    We should probably try and make this easier. We’ll have a look at some proper sites and see what they do and then maybe copy them.
