  • Ashes 2015: Second Test

    Tim Newman
    24 Jul 2015 | 12:21 am
    I only caught the first two days of the second test because on Day 3 I was flying to Thailand, where I am now.  By the time I arrived, the match was all but over. Having predicted in my previous post that England would edge this match, I could not have been proven more wrong with Australia trouncing their opponents in a 405 run win.  In doing so, the whole situation between the teams has now flipped 180 degrees: it is England who will go into the next match pondering personnel changes and wondering what went wrong, and Australia who will look to capitalise on a potentially demoralised…
  • Ashes 2015: First Test

    Tim Newman
    13 Jul 2015 | 4:46 am
    Well, it seems the cautious optimism I displayed in my Ashes Preview post was justified: England have thumped Australia in the first test mainly due to their batsmen being able to withstand the Australian bowling attack and the Australian batsmen being crap. A word which used to get bandied about a lot during the good times under Andy Flower was “businesslike” or “workmanlike”.  England’s success came mainly off the back of serious, concentrated, graft rather than displays of brilliance or raw talent (KP was the exception, hence his reputation).  These terms…

    In a rather confused article entitled The Arrogance of Power, the BBC gives us this gem: Some European countries have no [Presidential] term limits, including Italy, Switzerland and Russia. According to the Russian constitution, Article 81 Clause 3: One and the same person cannot hold the office of the President of the Russian Federation for more than two terms running. Good journalism there, BBC. Having started talking about African presidents hanging onto power beyond their constitutionally determined limits, the article then veers off into an opinion piece by one Lord Owen, former British…
  • Ashes 2015: Preview and Predictions

    Okay, the Ashes are upon us again with the first test kicking off tomorrow.  As is customary around these parts, I will weigh in with my uninformed, narrow views as and when I think I have something to add. Many Australian pundits (including former players) are predicting a 5-0 stroll as per the last series in Australia.  This is monumentally stupid if for no other reason than the English weather can normally be relied upon to force a draw somewhere.  What I have yet to figure out is whether this is the usual Australian media and public gobbing-off, or whether this is what the actual team…

Don't compare your rocky beginning to their triumphal finish. Keep focused on who you are called to be and walk in the joy that He has for you!
