Selectors Prefer Blondes?

with 4 comments

It is the debate that has split the country in two. The nation has not been this riven since a roundhead first offered a cavalier outside to taste his musket. It’s Blur vs Oasis. Moore vs Connery. Pro-life vs abortion.

The latest hot spud demands that each and everyone of us ask fundamental questions of our own worldview and decide exactly where we stand. Do you prefer brunettes or blondes? State or private education? North or south (Leicestershire)? Burly or willowy? Tall or really tall? Swing or seam?

Yes. It’s the continuing discussion as to whether the England selectors will opt for Tim Bresnan or Stuart Broad for the first test at Lords.

I’d go for Bresnan. The selectors will probably plump for Broad. I don’t know really.

  1. I like Bresnan.He bowls a heavy ball.Broad’s a simpering poser with a rubbish strike rate.

    • Bresnan does bowl a heavy ball. It’s probably made of York stone. Broad’s ball is made of poodle fur.

  2. Broad is like Flintoff – he takes wickets in big games that everyone remembers, and the rest of the time he’s rubbish.
