I keep dipping back in. A most welcome diversion during this period when I have no live cricket to toddle off to.

Why was Boycott attacked

Bizarre event. Boycott attacked after getting out last ball of the day. But by opposition fans. Was it something he said or are they just hooligans. Amazing how so few from the next generation of W. Indians go to cricketer.

That'd be Lord's 1973. I believe Boycott had been given not out off a caught behind appeal by umpire Arthur Fagg earlier and his innings, and that has caused some dissent amongst the Windies team, which transmitted to the crowd. Fagg initially refused to officiate the following day until he received an apology from the WI team. This was also the era when Boycott got himself into regular trouble attempting the hook.

Close later said the blow to his ribs made him very nearly pass out. You can see him trying to conceal his reaction..."don't let them know you're hurt". A phenomenally brave man, bordering on lunatic.

It makes me laugh when modern day observers decry the state of English cricket (despite results in recent years often being pretty good). England were in such a parlous situation in 1976 that they had to open their batting with a 45 year old and a 39 year old, against the most hostile attack yet seen on these shores. At least there was youth at number 3, with 34 year old David Steele.

Absolutely. It was like Dads army at times. Quite a strange era.

And then those three tough nuts - having done relatively OK - were all gone within a couple of Tests, never again to wear the England sweater. It did feel desperate during the mid-70s.

I hate to sound like an old fart but....younger England fans these days, they don't know they're born!

One of the issues I have with those denigrating a retiring great, suggesting that players who retired 10 years before they ever started watching cricket were so much better.

If only we'd had an Alastair Cook back then - he'd have lapped up the short ball too!!

Nostalgia and time does leave some false memories or only good ones but equally annoying is those that think everything current is better. Top tens or top100's are always biased towards the present. Cook said Jimmy was England's best cricketer ever. Star Wars wins best film. It's all subjective.

Cook actually named Anderson as 'England's all time greatest cricketer' which is always going to be bobbins as that honour cannot go to anybody bar WG Grace, the greatest in all the game, regardless of respective playing abilities down the ages.

'Best cricketer' is slightly more realistic but still pretty far-fetched.
