Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff was not mincing his words at the Sky TV party at The Oxo Tower on Tuesday night. Speaking to the Londoner, all his bonhomie turned to scowls when the subject of his erstwhile England colleague, former captain and now Sky TV and Times journalist Michael Atherton, came up.“He’s  a p***k,” said Flintoff. “He’s a f*****g p***k.” Why so? “He sits there making judgments about players that are much better than he ever was, believe me, he’s a p***k.

Asked whether he minded saying this to a journalist, Flintoff, who was accompanied by his glamorous wife Rachel, said: “I don’t care. Say what you like. There’s no love lost there.”

no love lost. sounds like ramdin :grin: :grin:

I like cricket & sachin, Dhoni, Shourav, Dravid all of them like cricket. The difference between me & Sachin is additionally they play cricket. There is no so much difference.  Right ?

I love cricket mostly..Shakib, Tamim, Mushfiq also love cricket so where the difference. People say there is a difference. When I watch their play I(we) pray for them. If there would a difference we would not pray for them & there are like more than kith & Kin to me/us  Right ?

Atherton was a bloke who got his pants pulled down to his ankles by 'real' cricketers like Glenn McGrath. He then tripped, fell flat on his face and couldn't ton up at Lord's for the only time in his career he got a useful start

I do not think you have to be a great or the greatest player to be a good judge, Coach, Commentator or expert in the field.
 
As a commentator you are paid to comment on a job in an impartial, balanced and non personal manner. In my humble view, Richards crossed the line into personal insult and none of his comments were constructive towards Ramdin. He also had more deserving candidated to whom he could have channelled his bile.
 
Atherton do not have the best numbers but he lead from the front both as Captain and opening batsman at a time when England was weak and fumbling.
 
Freddie and Athers are both Lancastrians so not sure what the bad blood is but with Nasser I have never heard Atherton in a negative light when commentating as he is balanced and very objective and I see him as a future head of the ICC if he chose to.
 
Freddie drinks too much and is incapable of holding back.
 
Atherton has lead with great dignity and honour, the same cannot be said for Freddie. Atherton has Captained more times than any other Captain in England's illustrious history, although Strauss in on course to overtake him, in difficult times.
 
Atherton was gutsy and never gave his wicket away.

Wasim Akram was the best bowler I faced, and the most difficult due to the amount of swing and reverse swing: says Grant Flower.

Guess which team has been dismissed for less than 100 most often in Test Cricket? Australia, 36 times!
