Only just realised that this comment was directed at what I said. I think that you'll find that I justified my comment. I made it clear that in no way did I think that Freddie was at fault BUT that as such a major part of the team (being an all rounder) he should be able to focus on his game rather than that of everyone else.
I can't be bothered to justify this further as it's all over now. Never mind. I would like to say that I enjoyed watching it but as it was on in the middle of the night I hardly saw any of it. I'll get to see our lovely boys later this year though.
We won with a whitewash :hyper:
The wonders of dual citizenship mean that my team never loses
When it comes to footie, well you're fooked then.
probably still better off sticking with australia there as well, these days.
You were right in what you said anyway. Vaughn is able to captain without his ego or his emotions getting in the way. Freddie aint...
I'll think you'll find Vaughan's batting was massively affected when he took over as captain and it took a while for that to be sorted out.
I think now that yes the captaincy did affect Flintoffs performances, hopefully with vaughan back now he'll get the best out of him and we'll win the one-dayers, although we're shitter at them than test matches so it'll be hard work.
Yes, his batting was affected, but damn, we need his captaincy. And yeah, I finally agree with you on Flintoff. Hopefully we will now start to see the best of him again now the burden is lifted. Good god, do we need him to get back to his peak...
But we need Flintoff to perform, its a must and if the extra burden of him captaining means he won't then he can't be the captain, his performances with bat and ball are key to any success England are going to have.
