    Mate I made monkey noises at black players when I was 17/18. I utterly despise myself for doing it but I can’t go back and not do it. My Dad was quite the bigot historically (something he also massively regrets now)

    reading the tweets, they seem to all be to the same person. Only one uses a racial term which black people use all the time. My son listens to music with the “n word” in constantly.

    the lad hits the pinnacle of us career, the press can’t wait to kill it
    Allardyce hits the pinnacle of his, press can’t wait to kill it

    it’s the British press in a nutshell.

    there are so many “woke” people who say “if you can’t take the punishment, don’t do it in the first place” like they’ve done nothing they regret in their lives. I’ve lied and cheated on exes (not, I may add, on my current wife),

    I shagged a 15 year old when I was 20 (didn’t know she was 15 as we met in a club but i still got arrested). If I suddenly got the England job, that would undoubtedly be all over the papers in no time!! (not going to happen!!)

    best part of us old lads did...it would be very loud and vocal in the crowd as an attempt to put black players off their game.

    as i tried to explain on another site, things were far different back then and there are many who will never admit to it but what we called 'banter' back then would be seen in a very different light now, many words used were just commonplace and meant nothing to anyone...yes, i am as pleased as anyone should be that things have changed and most of the civilised world has become a damn sight more acceptable, i have not seen what he posted and have no interest as long as his views are different now i honestly do not see the problem, otherwise a lot of young people are going to have maybe one or two posts that they 'used the wrong wording' on keep coming back to haunt them, people cannot live with that and in my eyes it is as far removed from racism and bigotry as you can get.

    The other day Sky were doing a comparison between the top six batsmen (oops not supposed to say that now) - batters in the 2 teams. In the NZ team only Tom Latham averaged under 40. In the England team only Joe Root averaged over 40 and you must remember the world no1 Kane Williamson is not playing for them. Men v boys

    6-8 months ago I had high hopes for the next Ashes series. Not anymore. Back to the most fragile batting unit in world cricket. Awful.

    So many changes have not helped, but still does not explain such a poor performance.

    They've only got themselves to blame. Chopping and changing in Sri Lanka and India.
