All I know is I backed England to win the final and it was a fookin tie.

Bookies must have cleaned up - easiest money since a certain Essex Gull robbed two CI chaps in broad daylight.

I know nothing about cricket and so cannot offer a worthwhile opinion on it. If I had a chance, would I go back to my sporting competitive years and learn how to master it?

Probably not, as it hasn't captivated me in the years since and I would have had to cut back on other sports and hobbies to play it. Life is all about selecting what you can do in a limited time, which means that sports such as cricket, golf and kabaddi have fallen to the wayside. If I am honest, the reason why I have never really watched cricket, nor tennis at Wimbledon, is because it's usually played when the weather is good and so I resent the time sitting in a darkened room watching sport when I can be outside. Winter sports fit the tv viewing mood better.

I went to watch my first live football game in years on Monday evening, can't say that I'll be rushing back.

Where you in borstal or a similar safe institution during the summers of your youth ?
I first watched cricket on a field, with the sun on my back, enjoying the sound of leather on willow and the smell of freshly mown grass and I was instantly smitten. So much so I also learnt to play the game of gentlemen at school and have taken part in many a tactical battle of spin and seam against the skill of the batsmen defending the wickets and the astute field placings to prevent the ball racing over the boundary rope during the long summer nights on village greens and recreational parks throughout the East Riding. Essex Gull, old friend, you have never lived.

I'm in total agreement (there's a first time for everything).

Well said.

Aside from a few overweight locals playing on a rough patch of grass and reaching 17 all out (both sides) my first real contact was at a racheous Circle watching Yorkshire in the JPL as a kid.

I also saw Yorkshire play at Fenners for the Geoff Boycott testimonial tour. Think he was out for 11 or something LBW and that was that.

Not a massive fan but intrigued. At least they ban the cheaters when caught (no fookin pun intended ok) which is more than can be said for foota.

Apparently John Snow the seamer and former England bowler was staring in Game of ?Thrones but as I never wat he’d it I can’t confirm that.

One has to wonder if the Gull really was brought up on Holderness Road don’t you?

And to think that I was once described as 'divisive', when actually I've done more than anyone to heal the schism caused by the Allan regime.

I don’t know about divisive but you were definitely called a “bet dodger”.

More slander.

I acted as an unregulated exchange to facilitate gentlemans' wagers. I cannot, nor shall not, be held responsible for monies lost through reckless behaviour. You requested a sartorial thug to manage your financial affairs, don't be surprised when it backfires.

Slander is a false statement, old bean. Nothing false about “Gully whelched on a bet, leaving Frankie Banks and Sir Cheatham with no beans for their toast”.

No fake news here, just hard fast cutting foota talk with proper geezers, Tenfoot Tiger excepted, who is a bit of a tosser.

Yeah, pay up or be damned forever and a day, free transfer to the bottomless pit of Not606.
