Suave's Republique Cricket


Angry Andre Nel signs for the mighty Essex Eagles

Gunther feels the rage, so would I, if I had to bowl alongside halfwits like James Middlebrook!

Andre Nel is to return to county cricket with Essex, for the third season in a row.

This my friends is very good news for The Eagles.  Our bowling line up is shit.  And he is only here for the beginning of the season, whilst Danish Kaneria is away.

It puzzles me why he’d want to go to Essex though, maybe it’s the, bright lights of Bas Vegas.

The delights of Old Leigh, and The Crooked Billet for cockles and a pint, on a summers eve.

Maybe he likes bowling on the flattest deck in the division.

Maybe he’s running away from the incestuous thoughts about his sister.

Maybe he really likes Chelmsford/

No, sorry, no-one really likes Chelmsford.  That’s like really liking watching paint dry.

Whatever the reason is, I’m happy that he’s signed.  Here’s to you Mr Angry

Can i just say, that it’s a shame Dirty Dirk and Andre didn’t get to play in the same side.

That would have tipped the angry quota over the top. The ECB couldn’t have that, what what.

I like Chelmsford.

Why? Does not compute…

Nostalgia. You should never lose sight of where you’ve come from.

Are you a Chelmsford girl!! Brilliant.

I never lose sight of Basildon, it’s always there, haunting me!

Comment by Suave

I sure am!
Yes, Basildon would do that, yes.
Chelmsford: if nothing else, it enables me to win HANDS DOWN the argument with people who say that only cities have cathedrals, and that’s got to be worth something.

Comment by Miriam

That’s a fair point. They’re probably the only town with a football club called ….. City too (although I can’t be bothered to check that).

Comment by Suave

[…] – have kept Andre Nel, and Bopara should play a fair bit, but the Eagles still lean heavily on […]
