    Oh what a shame, missed that completely, haven't been able to listen/watch any UK coverage this year...

    Having a quick google of it, I have got to say that it all makes him look pretty terrible. I sadly rescind my nomination.

    Instead, I put forward the oft maligned Nasser, because who doesn't love a Shakespearean fool.
    I don't think those messages were in the public domain until the **** in question (Liew?) published them, and to be fair I'd probably call someone a **** if they accused me of racism.

      I always thought Aggers was the chosen son of Johnners who was destined to be the next fatherly figure that TMS could coalesce around. I thought his Twitter meltdown absolutely shocking.

      I don't do Twatter myself but it's pretty obvious that it is a public platform, if it had been an email spat it would not have been in the public domain.

      Barney Ronay writing in the Guardian said that he and others had been on the wrong end of some abuse from Aggers off and on over the years. Not good.

      You can send "private messages" on Twitter.

      Cricket has always had brilliant pundits and analysts, but it has never been as good as when Test Match Special had Brian Johnston, Trevor Bailey, Henry Blofeld, the Alderman Don Mosey and Vic Marks.

      Of the current crop I like Nasser Hussain, Jeremy Coney is also a good call.
      Possibly before your time? But the BBC TV team of the late 70’s and 80’s were also great ... Richie Benaud, Jim Laker, grumpy Fred Trueman and Peter West. I first got into cricket as a spectator sport, as a kid, by coming on across their test match coverages. Great memories of the era onwards from Randall, Gower, Emburey, Edmonds, Gooch.

      Ah, I see. As a non-Twatter I did not know that was possible. Mind you, still not a nice thing to do.

      You should read his autobiography, he's had a few " scrapes " over the years, been a bit of a bad boy but mostly shot himself in the foot. Overall, he's a good listen.

      I actually don't have much of an issue with the word, I think it's a fantasticly underused thing.

      I do however have an issue when, from a quick search, it is clear to see that he cannot take public criticism for things which he has every right to be called out on. The reason he told Liew he'd see him next tuesday, was because of this (https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/...-a8887246.html) completely justifiable article pointing out that the cricketing world cannot have concerns over one player's eligibility but not another's. The difference of course being skin colour.

      No one gave a damn when KP became eligible in 2005, he was a player who could clearly carry England to victory. Archer showed this potential and has now demonstrated it. It was right to call Agnew, and others, out on this. Agger's reaction is childish whether in the public or private domain (and I would argue that as it is a professional relationship between media and press it was hardly a private matter).

      I don't agree. Aggers lost his shit in a private message to a self-righteous journalist who has completely miss-read the Archer situation for his own ends. Takes a lot to bother me but when I read that article I was annoyed.

      I think C*** is a measured response.
