‘The bottom line’: Ex-England captains lament ‘abject’ collapse https://ericjohnsonweb.com/the-bottom-line-ex-england-captains-lament-abject-collapse/ Mon, 17 Jan 2022 06:44:28 +0000 https://ericjohnsonweb.com/the-bottom-line-ex-england-captains-lament-abject-collapse/

Former England captain Alastair Cook said England had reached ‘low bottom’ with their abject batting collapse in Hobart on Sunday as the Ashes’ latest loss in a calamitous run ratcheted up the pressure on skipper Joe Root and trainer Chris Silverwood.

Australia crushed England by 146 runs with two days to spare in the Day-Night Test as the hosts finished the series 4-0.

The visitors were competitive in just a handful of sessions across five Tests and the collapse at Hobart, where they lost 10 wickets for 56 runs, was hard to watch, Cook said.

“It was very difficult viewing, it has to be our background, there can’t be a worse place than getting knocked down in an hour and a half,” Cook said on BT Sport. “The conditions are tough and some good bowling, but there was no resilience there.

“It’s the biggest shock as a batter and a professional playing cricket…once they’ve lost one or two, no one steps in and stops the slide.

“We have to look at everything, start to rebuild this test team. No stone can be left behind because it has to be better.”

England suffered heavy defeats in Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne before salvaging a draw in Sydney.

Former skipper Mike Atherton agreed there needed to be an overhaul of England’s leadership after another “utterly abject and humiliating collapse”, although captain Root said he would like to stay in that role.

“England haven’t mastered the art of the stick, not by a long shot, but they’ve mastered the art of collapsing,” Atherton wrote in his column for The Times.

“Root is an exceptional man, a brilliant drummer but a captain who has run his course. Previously he said this tour would define his role as captain and here we are.”

Atherton also lambasted coach Silverwood and England men’s cricket chief executive Ashley Giles.

“There is no way, surely, that Silverwood can continue as head coach and manager after this, and no way that Giles will continue as general manager of men’s cricket either, given the decisions that he took,” he said.

Bow Fiddle Rock: River City star Iain Robertson talks about his love for the Moray monument https://ericjohnsonweb.com/bow-fiddle-rock-river-city-star-iain-robertson-talks-about-his-love-for-the-moray-monument/ Sat, 15 Jan 2022 15:00:04 +0000 https://ericjohnsonweb.com/bow-fiddle-rock-river-city-star-iain-robertson-talks-about-his-love-for-the-moray-monument/

Bow Fiddle Rock, near Portknockie, on the Moray Coast.

Why are you going there?

It is a magnificent and dramatic spectacle. I love that the North Sea has carved this amazing landmark out of rock for countless years. I heard that the rock, which looks like the tip of a violin bow, was once a cave and the sea eroded it over time to leave us with this impressive sight.

How often do you go there?

At least once a year. But in all honesty, if I’m ever in the area, I find every excuse I can find to make myself understood.

Bow Fiddle Rock, near Portknockie, on the Moray Coast

How did you discover it?

I was reading about the Moray Coast Trail, saw a picture of it and just knew I had to go. I actually had to nail a section of the Moray Coast Trail on my Speyside Way walk to make sure I was snapping my eyes at the great beauty.

What is your favorite memory?

Probably more recently on the final stretch of my extended Speyside Way walk. The waves were breaking and it brought a great sense of excitement.

On a recent visit, although not so much a favorite but a memorable one all the same, my buddy Delane, who lives near Portknockie, arranged to meet me there.

Unfortunately, on her way to the rock, she tripped over a rock and broke her ankle. A walker approached me and said, “Are you Iain?” When I asked why, they said, “There’s a woman down the road screaming for someone named Iain!”

Who do you take?

Anyone and everyone. My girlfriend Joanne Gallagher was with me on my recent visit while we were filming Iain Robertson’s new series Rambles. Like all my hikes, I like to share the path as often as possible to create memorable memories with friends.

I think sharing these walks together really helps bond and solidify friendships. So if I’m nearby and the buddy I’m with has never seen it, you can be sure we’re passing by.

What do you take?

Raincoats to protect against those aggressive waves and a camera to take even more pictures of the rock to add to the many already in my collection.

I recently got into packrafting, so I hope to visit on a day when the North Sea is relatively calm, so I can paddle through the rock.

What are you leaving behind?

Absolutely nothing, except maybe footprints.

Sum it up in five words.

Amazing. Toning. Impressive. Romantic. Spectacular.

What other travel location is on your wish list?

Hopefully a foreign beach in the scorching sun, but failing that there’s plenty of Scotland to explore.

Iain Robertson Rambles continues on BBC Scotland, Friday at 8.30pm. You can also watch it at River City on BBC Scotland, Mondays at 10 p.m.

Colts don’t face ‘serious’ injuries, though Rock Ya-Sin needs surgery https://ericjohnsonweb.com/colts-dont-face-serious-injuries-though-rock-ya-sin-needs-surgery/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 22:41:15 +0000 https://ericjohnsonweb.com/colts-dont-face-serious-injuries-though-rock-ya-sin-needs-surgery/

INDIANAPOLIS — The Colts believe their roster has come to the end of the season without dealing with any new injuries that could linger into the 2022 season, an issue that became a significant issue at the start of the 2021 season.

Darius Leonard, Quenton Nelson, Eric Fisher and Dayo Odeyingbo, among others, showed up to training camp with lingering injuries.

Rock Ya-Sin, the third-year cornerback who became a front-row starter this season and left the season finale against Jacksonville due to hip and ankle injuries, is expected to undergo surgery.

“I think he may need surgery, but it’s not major,” Colts general manager Chris Ballard said. “Coming out of the game and out of the season, I don’t think we have anything major. I hope I’m not mistaken there.

Indianapolis Colts cornerback Rock Ya-Sin (26) sits on the ground injured during the first quarter of the game on Sunday Jan. 9, 2022 at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Fla.

Two Colts, whose injuries were known before, are undergoing rehabilitation.

► Free safety Julian Blackmon tore his Achilles tendon in training in October and is doing well in his recovery, although Ballard would not make a prediction on whether or not Blackmon would be ready for the start of training camp. Veteran running back Marlon Mack tore his Achilles tendon in the 2020 season opener, and he was able to return early in training camp.
