Re: Return Of Local Cricket - Madness

Think the problem with cricket is not so much the social distancing aspect but the handling of the ball as potentially every player could be touching it. I know with tennis the guidelines were that only one player should bring a set of balls to play with, balls picked up by foot and racquet and ser...

I wouldn’t think he was close to the first team to be honest. He’s very quick and strong but I’d suggest Glennon has gone ahead of him in the pecking order behind Taylor & Pieters. He did well at Swindon last season and he does need to be playing first team football. Good luck to him if he chooses ...

Pieters looked comfortable on Thursday, a natural footballer, as you'd expect of the Dutch.
Cahill and Milejovic are big strong lads in the air. If Jay isn't playing, I'd play 2 fast little uns, and keep the ball on the deck.

It can't be as simple as that though, because what "backing him" means is entirely subjective. If he wants to sign Harry Kane, then we shouldn't back him, because it would bankrupt the club.
