Alec Stewart the new England coach?? Nope its Colly (for nowl
« on: February 02, 2022, 06:58:35 AM »

As the title suggests, quite a few papers suggesting that Stewart will be named coach on a temporary basis for the West Indies tour and probably the Summer.

Thoughts??

I cant imagine its at all pleasant having the sack over you and played out in the media, but it seems imminent Giles will save himself and sack Silverwood and Thorpe. I think we need a better coach but its the management that needs removing - Giles and Harrison so we can get some sort of reset towards the test team.

Having said that some of us that watched Stewart playing know he is class and with a lack of world class players in that era he was one of our best.

In wicketkeeping terms alone he was a different class to what we have now and made himself about the best batsman keeper I can remember.

I think he will be appointed short term for the West Indies.

Root needs help and this sounds pretty good to me

He has been a bit hit and miss for Surrey as the manager.
We have been terrible for a couple of years.
But he was the boss when we won the champo (thanks Morne though)

The post Ashes clear out is about to be announced.

Giles, Silverwood and Thorpe all out

Harrison not gone yet though. He wants his bonus.

I get the feeling he is also a bit of a no nonsense type and with a real pedigree behind him maybe he can get a few of these pre Madonnas out of there comfort zone and which seems to be a feeling from a few senior figures reporting on that players have more say than maybe they should do given there performances and the teams outputs over recent years. Consequence management is a term I hear a lot in the workplace that you lose some perks when your not performing.

Giles has stepped down he must of had an option I think as they hang around as long as possible-or for the bonus in Harrisons case. He really is a leech.

Temp arrangement for the Windies will be fine. On the point of whether the team needs a firm handyesbut cricket has got like football and the players have more power than ever.

Just look at the ongoing saga of Justin Langer currently.

Whatever you think of Langer as a coach seems hes got a lot more class than the leeches at the ECB

You wont find many disagreeing on here with that viewpoint.

Silverwood gone, we need an experienced coach to help Root and get some test match batting thinking into the younger players.

But in some ways cheif selector and coach in one job plus the covid issues and bubbles, Silverwood had one hand behind his back before he started.

Seems the quiet money is on Richard Dawson for the interim role in the Windies.
I was at uni with him😂. But he has played and coached at Yorkshire, played a few tests and coached at Gloucester before being the Eng u19 coach.
