    Sam Oji: Former Birmingham City defender and Arsenal youth player dies at age 35 - BBC Sport Oji had a spell at my club, Hednesford Town , a couple of years back and everyone was unanimous in saying what a nice guy he was. Not clear what happened to him, but 35 is no age. RIP
  7. Hopefully I'm not offending anyone or breaking a long established convention, but I saw this and thought to myself that there is no limit to extent to which people will use the law to seek retribution (normally hefty financial settlements) for alleged infringements of their own human rights / privacy etc Nirvana sued by the baby from Nevermind's album cover - BBC News Presumably this guy feels slighted by his parents / Nirvana and society in general, but if he does win his case then it opens up a can of worms. Personally I think it is pretty cool , but this chap is evidently short of cash.

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    I remember watching Hendrick bowl on TV and benaud used to berate him on commentary for not pitching it up enough. Apparently had he done so, in Benaud's opinion , he would have taken more wickets. Funny how little things like that stick with you. RIP

    From R&D FC twitter AFC Rushden & Diamonds (@AFCRD) / Twitter I support a non-league team and when Griggs took over he merged Rushden Town and Irthingborough Diamonds. He then bankrolled a meteoric rise through the pyramid and in a sense he was to blame (in my view) for a number of clubs throwing money around they didn't have in order to try to keep up with R&D. A number of clubs in non-league went full-time as a result and since then we've seen a number of clubs endure boom and bust times. My own view is that this is a bad thing, but times have changed forever. R&D then spent many years being a tenant of various clubs after they were locked out of their own ground which was subsequently flattened.
  10. A difficult question to answer, but I guess the highest Test run scorer in history , or, pinching inspiration from LFN, the most prolific porn star in history with the biggest cock on record into the bargain.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/56971321 Alan igglesden hasn't got long left unfortunately. He was wheeled out to play against the Aussies in the late 80s after every other English fast bowler either got injured or dropped after being smacked to all parts. In cruel twist, one of his team mates at Kent, Richard Davis, succumbed to a brain tumour at a relatively young age some years ago.

    Having watched, and cringed most of the time, if I were his legal advisors I'd be thing him to keep his gob shut and avoid cameras in future. Gems like "his death was a miracle " made it quite a bizarre and at times , stilted, interview.

    It transpires that the ECB has requested that all recreational cricket next Saturday is paused between 3pm and 4pm. Really good idea given that covid restrictions mean that players cannot go into changing rooms or clubhouses during the break. Spending an hour in the car looking miserable is the only option!
