Do you like the new blog?

From: Ian Canaway

Hi Cricketer!

What do you think of the new blog? (To leave a comment follow the link at the end of this post). I’ve gone with a Christmas theme as it seems appropriate given the time of year, I’ll get something more Cricket related up after Christmas and once The Ashes fever dies down a bit.

I’ve added a guestbook to this blog too, so if you want to leave your thoughts about the website or tell me how the tips I’ve been sending have help you, post on the guestbook here 🙂

Well England are really up against it now, 2 down with 3 to play in the series, England are going to have to pull something special out the ‘bag’ to hold on to The Ashes. I’m not one for making predicitions, but I struggle to see how England can recover with the way they have been playing lately.

Have you entered The Ashes Competition yet? If not get your entry in ASAP, you’ve only 4 days until the first deadline closes! So click that link, read the post and click ‘post reply’ to enter, if you’ve haven’t registered for the forum you can do so through this link.

Once you’ve entered try and guess who said this,

“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we fervently believe, and upon which we vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”

I’ll tell you in a moment who said (it’s not someone you would easily guess), but if you want to be a really good cricketer (or want to achieve success in any discipline for that matter), you need to study that quote and understand what it is telling you.

Have a think about it and I’ll elaborate further on it’s meaning in my next post.

Oh the person that said it was no other than the famous (and successful) artist Pablo Picasso…

All the best,

Ian Canaway

    Hey , the site rocks plus the fitness tips in the site are awesome, well talking about ashes . I thought that English cricketers in the last sesssion of the second test last day came out totally demotivated . Well i just have to say one thing 150 odd runs in 38 overs ,last session of the test match , what were u thinking . ppl they could have easily restrained aussies from ball one , but there body language sounded as if they came out to lose . I was pretty disappointed to see them , well i hope they give some though time to aussies at waca (perth) till the last ball(lolz) and they should give monty a chance this time around as we had seen in the last test at waca between AUS vs SAF last year that the pitch was taking more turn than pace for which the waca ground is famous for.

    Hey Ian, loving the blog, as well as the site as always!
    Can’t wait for the next ashes test, hopefully england will show a bit of backbone and regain some pride.
    The time difference is annoying though, I think i’m going to have to readjust my bodyclock completely so that I’m waking up at 5am every morning to watch the cricket opposed to staying up all night like i had previously been doing!!
