Some talk about Paine or Carey.
I'd like to think Nevill.

Paine didn’t even keep for Tassie. That’s how f***** the decision will be.

And if they pick Shaun Marsh or Cartwight at No.6, I don’t think I’ll bother watching the 1st Test.

Just when I thought we got rid of the biggest dud of a selector in Rod Marsh, along come this crew...

The fuckeits have picked Shaun Marsh.GAGF you pathetic mofos. This is the 8th f****** time he has been recalled. FMD. Love ya Boof, but if you can’t see past this dud then perhaps you should hand over the reins.

Shit Marsh last 10 test innings: 63, 15, 16, 0, 66, 9, 2, 53, 4, 1

And what’s he done this summer?

63, 11, 2, 91, 17, 52

Stellar stuff

:roll:

Ahhh but Hohns has just stated that Marsh is in "the form of his life".

Methinks the selectors have managed to get great odds from Ladbrokes for the Poms.

“The form of his life” doesn’t mean it’s any f****** good.

Hohns can simply GAGF. Another hack like Hilditch.

Spot on. And Brett Geeves wrote something even better.

Fact is, the only person deserving to be picked at No.6 is Ellyse Perry. Great bat. Top bowler.

"Australian coach Darren Lehmann has a more-recent Shield century than the Tim Paine of 2017." :roll:

The selection of Marsh makes me want to paint good old St George Cross on my body and join the barmy army...

To the tune of “Drop The Pilot” by Joan Armatrading...


DROP THE SCAPEGOAT

Drop the scapegoat
He’s right on target
His bat is straight
Selectors are in love
We say what of it
Things can change
There's always changes
Selectors wanna try
Some rearranging

Drop the scapegoat
Try the Marsh buffoon
Drop the ‘incumbie’
Tell him real soon
Drop Glenn ‘Maxy’
He’s the easy rider
Join the barmy army
To fight this stupid battle

Typical, cynical, pitiful, comical
Marsh is the one you need
Marsh is the one you need

You're pissing reasons
There's no smoke
No flame
If we lose the Ashes
Selectors are to blame
If you want solid crack
Go on and try Marsh
Oh he will take you so high
That you're never gonna wanna
Come back

Drop the scapegoat
Try the Marsh buffoon
Drop the ‘incumbie’
Tell him real soon
Drop Glenn ‘Maxy’
He’s the easy rider
Join the barmy army
To fight this stupid battle

Typical, cynical, pitiful, comical
Marsh is the one you need
Marsh is the one you need
I said
Typical, cynical, pitiful, comical
Marsh is the one you need
Marsh is the one you need
Marsh is the one you need

Paine is the best keeper in the country bar none.

All depends on that bloody finger as to if its an inspired selection.
Essendon Football Club- We arent arrogant, just better.

Interesting that they say that. Can they explain why Tassie consider Wade a better option as keeper than Paine?

Men’s Ashes = Mashes

Ffs they can’t even pick a team based on form and the least deserving isn’t even fit :roll:
