Scotland would work as the incumbent's shit. You'd just need to prove why he's shit in an election thread.
Who else is going for national positions?
I'll stay as USA assistant assuming Akmal wins.
Only decided to play my young leggie at the last minute, (crumbler pitch), and he did this.
Otali to Page : [dropped] Page plays the cut and gets a bottom edge. The deflection is just enough to cause Carty to grass a tough chance.
End of over 13 (1 run) - Dem Bucketz(63-8). 119 runs required from 7 overs. RR 4.85 RRR 17.00
C. Page 8 (14b), O. Winfrey 1 (4b), C. Otali 4-0-6-6
Could have had 7 without that dropped catch off his last ball!
FTR, they were 1-43 off 5 when he started his spell.
How do you think it can be proven that he's shit (apart from the bottom-most position in NAT OD rankings)?
I'm not running your campaign for you. In fact I'd prefer you didn't run as I don't want the thread posted with 10 live updates of Scotland nat matches each tour day that nobody cares about.
That said I'm a nice enough guy so ill help out but really, my top tip is to aggressively question him in his own thread
By aggressively I mean the questions themselves being tough not being a cunt ftr
Looks like father and son will be Nat managers for Netherlands.
Never seen that anywhere
Challenge me. Team name: Fitta's Army
Draft election speech, thoughts?
About My Club: I have joined this game in October ’12. During the 4 full seasons since then, I have managed 4 promotions in Senior OD, 4 promotions in T20 and 2 promotions in Youth OD. Whether I could have achieved more with my club in this period of time is for you to decide.
About Me: I am a very active player of this cricket management game. I apply common sense while devising match orders. I put emphasis on managing fatigue well. To me, it is important to balance short and long term objectives. I am a person who likes to spend sufficient time to take an informed, judicious and intelligent decision independently; and takes complete responsibility once the decision is taken.<O></O>
Assistants: I believe in the concept of teamwork in general. However, I think teamwork can bring in a lot of confusion and chaos when it comes to strategizing and decision-making. Therefore, if I am elected, assistants are likely to play a relatively limited role in the Scotland Nat scenario. For the same reason, I shall be looking for inexperienced but talented learners as my assistants.<O></O>
Previous Nat Experience: I am familiar with various tools in the Nat page thanks to spending a short time as an Assistant to an ex-National Manager in the past.<O></O>
Why Scotland?: Why not?<O></O>
Because you're not Scottish?
Because you don't play in Scotland?
Explain why you were only assistant for a short time. If I didn't know any better I'd have assumed the manager fired you when really it was always going to be a one month apprenticeship which looks a lot better for you
I would be hesitant in voting for a bloke who had limited experience who planned to work with a team of limited experience. Just saying.
That's not a necessary condition though, Gary Kirsten did pretty well for India.
You would always be hesitant to vote for anyone called 'weldone'. Just saying.
Nah I'm reading that as if its a random candidate.
It's like bringing in a random businessman to be the prime minister and then him appointing his cabinet with blokes who've never been in politics
But I'm not random though - my track record in FTP is better than all other candidates for Scotland.
Irrelevant, if I approached an election with a sense of entitlement like you seem to have even I'd lose despite my record
Does this work Rusty?
Why Scotland?: I’ll be very honest here – Scotland is the country where I anticipate my brightest chance of winning. Besides, I love tough challenges. With due respect to the previous management team, Scotland’s Nat scenario doesn’t look particularly rosy now. Improving that to a respectable position with the limited player resources available is a really tough challenge that I’ll be looking forward to.
