Welcome To TFT – A Home Of Independent Cricket Writing

We’re a community of cricket fans who follow the England national team. Or, in other words, a bunch of neurotic, obsessive cricket nerds who have far too much time on their hands. We’ll be here throughout the year to celebrate, bemoan and worry incessantly about the team’s fortunes.

This is actually the second incarnation of TFT. The blog was initially founded by Maxie Allen and James Morgan back in 2009 – the year when Graham ‘Bunny’ Onions famously blocked out the last over to secure a famous draw against South Africa. This first chapter came to an end in October 2015 when Maxie retired to the stands.

After a brief hiatus, James (that’s me by the way) resuscitated the blog and took things in a slightly different direction. The spirit of the old site remains though. We’re still a platform for cricket lovers to express their emotions – whether it’s about the team selection, management, officialdom, the spectator experience or the many problems facing our brilliant sport.

If you want to get something off your chest, please use this site as therapy. We’re generally a polite bunch (mostly) and discussion is the name of the game.
