The future is bright?

I hoped that we'd get a bit more straight talking from Paul Collingwood - it seems that he's fairly happy despite losing yesterday!!

We don't have that young a side to make losing to the West Indies OK. And the most disappointing aspect was the fielding....we dropped a lot in the Tests v West Indies too so I hope England's fielding picks up.

Perhaps a fairer assessment from Collingwood would have been something along the lines of "We made the same mistakes as before...we didn't bowl with discipline, we dropped crucial catches and we didn't make batting starts really count. Moving forward we have to change that, and quickly." They must do an extra media training course before they are allowed to captain....
