Fraid not Cookie (can I call you that, sounds cheap and dirty!).

Though if I had written a memo to Auntie beeb about that, I think it would have failed the censorship test (by a massive margin!)

EC, would do! Plus, your quote is still ''effed up'', think you are missing an / somewhere.

He's better than some who just state the obvious and are boring.

His idolising of the Aussies is fairly embarassing. I can only imagine he is doing his best to hold onto his Channel 9 job in Australia where they employ the most one-eyed, biased commentary team in the history of sport.

Nicholas is a twit. I can only imagine his appeal in Australia is as some sort of novelty hapless, plummy voiced Englishman, like a poor man's Henry Blofeld.

At least Blowfeld had a good command of descriptive language (when he wasn't sozzled). Nicholas just shouts. His "you little ripper" is truly excruciating, like listening to a middle-aged father desperately trying to prove his street-cred to his children.

Frankly he can p*ss right off.

Funny you should mention Mark Nicholas.I posted on his article today.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/mai...equestid=50430
I had a dig at him about McGrath because he wrote in his article on the SAvsAust game the highlight of the day for him was when McGrath chundering to himself when he was was hit for a couple of fours in his over.
I don't like him but I don't mind his commentating he does praise all players when they perform.It is just that reading his Telegraph articles I can see how two faced he is.At least he published my post,assuming he has say on what is posted.

Welcome to the board!

He does my head in too..I think he thinks he is gorgeous and we should al swoon at his feet when he just reminds me of a twit. That's a bit mean really, he is probably very nice.

I love David Lloyd, I need more of him, and I could listen to Michael Holdings voice forever.

Good to have you aboard the board Fils. Good post although I'm surprised to find no mention of Bob Key.

Definitely agree with you about Coney - shrewd, yet underrated and understated, just as he was as a player.

I can't quite understand what's wrong with the old fashioned clip round the ear though.

Alison also secured the last interview with Bob Woolmer, which I heard the other day, an excellent interview but very sad to listen to.

It was both an excellent interview and extremely poigniant. The feeling of a man being robbed of a well deserved rest and half retirement while still being involved in the game he loved was very strong.

How can you possibly say that about a commentary team featuring Ramiz Raja, whose comments about Ireland showed no trace of bitterness whatsoever.

"Just showing a lack of fight" I believe someone said, not sure if it was Ramiz or Cullinan.
