Yeah am I the only one who thinks that the Barmy Army just sound like:
?WOAAAAAAHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMMMMMMMMMMMMUHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHH BARMYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY ARMYYYYYYY BLUGGHHHHHHHHHHH RAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR DWOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRR ING-ER-LAND YYYYYYYYYYYYYYY WOOOOOOOOOOAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH BARMYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
That's what they sound like to me too
They sounded like
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAA
Description had something else then I tried to listen to actually what they were saying....
Still, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I really think that if they come into our stadiums and sing bull**** songs about OUR players, we should be legally allowed to evict them from the stadium. What a bunch of ****s.
Nobody want Barmy Army there anyways.
^Obviously I'm NOT the only one, as Rager and CD just said they agreed.
And the only time we don't show up to matches is when we're losing horribly and having to watch Cook & Trott bat. And honestly, can you blame us?
Where is the ambulance then?
Because we got bowled out for 98 and then proceeded to bowl garbage that Geoff Boycott's mum could've hit for four. That's why.
And besides there were like 90,000 people there on the last day of the MCG test. It was just that it was fancy dress day and 85,000 of them decided to dress up as empty seats.
Well she is cheap...
I don't get what's so bad about fans not turning up to watch their team get raped.
Do you expect them to turn up to watch the wonderfully exhilarating batting of Cook & Trott as they plod their way to painfully boring tons on a flat pitch against a bowling attack that can't put two balls in the one spot?
Nobody likes watching their side lose.
Why do you think the Barmy Army are called what they are. A lot of Aussies think like that.
Frankly I think it's piss poor to be honest. When your team has just bee bowled out for 98, on the most important day of their lives, the last thing they want is the crowd rushing out. The home crowd are supposed to lift the side in situations like that, and it's no surprise that you all bowled such filth after the break. You needed a pick up from someone; it didn't come from the crowd.
Also I don't like the lack of hope they have. Football fans often leave early when they're losing, and then they miss the most epic comeback in history. Imagine if the SA fans left when they got bowled out for 96 in Cape Town, they would have been devastated.
Finally, isn't it kinda morally wrong, that you've spent lots of money on a ticket and you're just leaving because your team aren't doing that well. It's not particularly grateful either as there are lots of people who would love the chance to go, yet they can't because these ****wits, who only care about they're team winning, bought all the tickets and were the only ones who could afford it.
We don't mind losing, but when we KNOW we're going to lose and have no hope of winning at all, we're not going to stick around.
Let's face it, the writing was on the wall after we got bowled out for 98.
Do you really think there was no chance you'd skittle us. Most English fans would have been a touch nervy still IMO.
Also worth a note that we skitled Pakistan for 99 and lost just a few months ago. I know we'd be much poorer that series than we had been in the Ashes, but you had just beaten us convincingly.
I'll make my dollar count, I won't leave until everyone leaves. I'll stay there and watch the sky.
I remember watching Greame Smith and Neil Mackenzie bat all day. The day's play was like 240-1.
Also I find it ironic as Cook and Trott actually scored quicker than Watson by the end of the Ashes. I wonder if CSB left the room when Watson was batting
That's because Watson wasn't bowled pies every over.
If Watson had been facing the garbage that Cook & Co. did, he would've smashed a run a ball ton every match.
Also, strike rates aren't everything... stylishness makes play interesting as well. And nobody is more stylish than Watto.
Trott would be fine if he didn't take half an hour to take guard. It makes him seem completely obnoxious and you can tell he only does it to piss bowlers off.
That's the main reason not many people like him.
