So is this once again where thereís a bit of pace in an attack and we fold like a deck of cards?

That's the thing, I don't know what can change because the fundamental issue is that our openers fail time after time so we never have a foundation. With our middle order we'll often get our way out of it and survive but on a pitch with a bit to it and some aggressive bowlers like this you always run the risk of being blown away. We are desperate for a couple of decent openers, Burns deserves more time to try to step-up but Jennings is out of his depth unless teams open with spinners, he just can't play bowling once it gets up around 85mph+ and almost every test side has a bowler or 2 that can top that.


As a bear I'm worried that Rhodes will be high on the list if he starts the season well.

The sooner the Test is over, the sooner Steve Bruce will be in charge at Wednesday.  It's almost as if the England players are all Blades fans

Yep. Curran has a lot about him as a cricketer. However, there is no way he is an opening bowler at test level yet. I'd probably have him as 4th seamer at present.

Getting absolutely mullered by the West Indies, the batsmen are weak.

Yes it was a pathetic performance with the bat but it was a fantastic spell by Roach.

I was listening to Darren Gough a couple of days ago, saying, yeah, I reckon 3-0 to England.  Bloody arrogance.  A disaster of a batting performance and the Windies making it look like a different track altogether.  I agree with others, Sam Curran isn't ready.  Bloody shame Olly Stone is injured, he'd be excellent on that pitch.

61-4. Not even two days in and 24 wickets have fallen.

Sam Curran absolutely is ready, heís proven that. Heís just not a number one or two seamer.
