A Boyhood Hero – A Tail of Feud and Intrigue

2016-02-01T17:18:14+00:00February 1st, 2016|Fun, News|5 Comments

Today we have an elegant piece of nostalgia from guest writer Phil Ryan. Can you work out who his hero is? I really enjoyed this. Over to you Phil .... I was born in Yorkshire in the late Summer of 1966. Like all Tykes I was brought up to enjoy cricket. But [...]

That Was the Tour That Was

And a very warm welcome to my first guest post for Eat My Sports! Thanks for dropping by. It's quite an interesting experience, actually - returning to the backbenches after so many years at the despatch box on The Full Toss. Once lord of the manor, I am now a mere footman. Thankfully, James has allowed [...]

The return of Caesar’s wife

It was Tregaskis who kicked it all off. https://twitter.com/Tregaskis1/status/659746123993751552 Then came the replies. https://twitter.com/JohnSunCricket/status/659750708896473088 I couldn't resist adding my three penn'orth. https://twitter.com/MaxieAllen/status/660018469610627072 To which came the responses (one of which was surprisingly testy): https://twitter.com/JohnSunCricket/status/660027699717632000 I defended with a very straight bat: https://twitter.com/the_topspin/status/660057424271958016 It's a shame that both Lawrence and John appear to [...]

Should Monty be going to the World Cup?

2015-10-29T18:31:35+00:00October 29th, 2015|News|0 Comments

Kevin Pietersen: Not bad for half a batsman

2015-10-29T18:31:35+00:00October 29th, 2015|News|0 Comments

England clinch place in ICC Test Championship playoffs … if only

2015-10-29T18:31:35+00:00October 29th, 2015|News|0 Comments

Sydney Morning Herald readers would be choking on their vegemite sarnies if it was 2013. After Australia’s recent 0-2 test series defeat to India, the Aussie headlines would read something like this: ‘Aussies choke as England snatch semi-final berth’, and ‘Ponting in crap captaincy shocker (again)’. Admittedly the latter headline would be [...]
