    Peter Brackley has gone - one of the better commentators of the last 30 years.

    Because he’s a c**t?

    Agree with much of that. Costacurta would, in any other team, be heralded as one of the best in the world - yet because of Baresi, got overlooked by many. One step further, almost no one remembers Tassotti - yet he won 5 scudettos and 3 European cups.

    Agreed. Disagree, obviously !

    Not even the best defender from his place of birth

    I’m at Bramall Lane today. Quality of football is poor to say the least.

    Tottenham haven’t looked like winning anything for years. They still don’t.

    Quite - but that wasn’t what you said.

    I’m not for a second suggesting it’s true in this case, but history is littered with false admissions.

    Looks like the cabbage has had the desired effect.

    Suspect you’re probably right. Denly will know Smith & Farbrace far better than he’ll know Root, so getting into the team may prove far more difficult than getting into the squad. Getting my jabs next week for Sri Lanka - doubt I’ll see a Kent player in the side but at least in watching a test at Galle I’ll have taken one off the bucket list !

    The wooden seats for sure! Leg room a non issue and the view is far worse at many other top flight grounds as an away fan.

    No comment made after one game of a league is a reasonable comment.

    Passing has never been front and centre of any Allardyce team.

    Is it still true it’s going to be a long hard season?

    Went to Goodison a few weeks back for the first time in a while - quite easily the best top flight ground in the country.

    They were a lot better at Arsenal in the 3rd game, and could easily have got something from that game, than they were in the first two games of the season. Another month on and they’ve got used to each other some more.

    Yes, yes, unlikely, no... ...to expand, yes I’ve seen plenty of Denly both before and after his spell at Middlesex. He was always a talent and as a youngster had 100% confidence in his own ability - which wasn’t always a good thing. Took him a long time to mature and was one in his youth who believed his own hype. He has done well since returning but that is at 2nd division level - suspect he’ll get found out in the 1st division let alone test level. His bowling in one day cricket, and specifically T20, has been exceptional given until 2 years ago he didn’t bowl at all. However, am pretty confident he’d be diabolical bowling in a test match. Would love to be proved wrong mind. Lastly, was at the oval for Cook’s 70 odd in the first innings - what a player. I will definitely we going to our games against Essex next season and won’t even mind if he scores a century - an absolute privilege to have watched him bat on many an occasion. Cheers chef

    Then you were watching with your eyes closed. I’ve seen worse West Ham sides finish mid table. You didn’t once think it might take a new managers ideas a while to bear fruit? A Paraguayan who’s never played outside South America a while to bed in? A 21 year old centre back new to the premier league a few weeks to settle? A brand new defence some time to learn each other’s games? A team who’s best player is out injured for the season? Yeah, write them off as having a long hard season based on a couple of matches in August

    Who knew it might take a new team and manager a few weeks to gel
