The Special One


So many flashbacks to the Oval 2005. Totally driven, reaching a different level and getting wickets through sheer will-power, feeding off the noise of the crowd and we fed off him.

But today, he was bowling on one leg.

And we won this one!

You could almost imagine him telling the rest of the team to climb on board and he'd take them to victory.

How long can it last?

Amazing wasn't it?!

Nothing to do with Frederick, but given the pic to the right, thought you'd appreciate me wondering into a pub the other day that had a painting of Knotty hanging up in the bar - a proper portrait, too.
