A Spark amongst The Ashes

Celia Walden in today's Telegraph quotes England Cricket Captain, Freddie Flintoff thus:

"My team-mate Mathew Hoggard called the Prime Minister a nob when we were celebrating winning the ashes at a Downing St. function, and do you know what? That's the first thing Hoggy's got right in a while. Blair is a nob".

Blair could respond from his luxurious Bee Gees 'cheapy' holiday hideout, "And I'm not the only one"

I suggest that for the last test at the SCG, Freddie pins up a 'spoof' bowling master plan on the dressing room noticeboard. Something like "Mathew Hayden - start with a long hop towards 2nd slip like Harmison bowled in the First Test, then two easy-to-hit slower balls down the leg side to create over-confidence, and then smash the 4th ball into his box". Should work better than the last master plan.
