The Ashes

Postby Melbourne Red » Tue Nov 21, 2017 2:33 am

Are any other shots fans going? I’m flying up to Brisbane on Friday for days 3 & 4 and then going to a couple of days of each of the Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne tests. I don’t have a flag, but I will be wearing my shots shirt. Hoping our boy James Vince will show what he can do.

Andy Porteous is in Brisbane and Adelaide, I think. Great day for Vincey, until that disaster
Reckon he could do well down there

Aldershot Originals flag shown on BT Sport for a good few seconds. Didn't get a screen grab in time...

That picture was at guiseley last season, the owner of that flag (macca) is the tall bloke with grey hair on the far right as you look at it holding the corner of the flag!

Looks like he was practicing to hang it the right way up for his current trip to Australia.

Ps, he reminds me of Alexander Armstrong (but maybe not as rich).

Oh dear.....

Don’t turn scores into 100’s and your up against it

Dear Alex,

I stand by my original ‘oh dear’ statement. If England want to save the Ashes they need to get the Ben Stokes ‘incident’ swept under the carpet pretty quickly.

Yours sincerely

James Riddle ( cricket expert).

Stoneman 53
Vince 83
Malan 56

Smith 141 NO

There lies the difference. If Vince had not needlessly run himself out( brilliant throw, but there was no need to take any risks in a test match) we would of been ahead and probably not had had to hang on in there in the final hour. The Aussies gaining a small innings lead gave them all the momentum they would ever need.

Not sure why you put 'oh dear' though :?:

We are doing ok. Could go either way still.
