Swanny’s World of Sport - On Ballance, a bad decision

Nick Compton is a shotless wonder.

Trust the English cricket selectors to ruin one exceptional decision, by making a couple of bad ones at the same time.

It’s good that time has been called on Ian Bell’s Test career. England need to look to the future now which makes it bizarre that Gary Ballance and Nick Compton have been recalled. They are both shotless wonders from the recent past whose only purpose will be to make Captain Cook look less of a tortoise.


I can’t think of a more inappropriate manager/club relationship than Rafa Benitez and Real Madrid.

A thrilling club being run by one of the dullest managers in the game. There was never a chance of success.
