Seaxe Man often refers to David Warner as the "Pocket Rocket".

Pedro Collins has been omitted and for now perhaps we can call him Super Ped- unless someone can think of something better?

Kimmy has some further nicknames for the Ice Man which for legal reasons can't mention here.

Ha ha....

The sky sports team called Morgan 'popeye' as he has large forearms...

The players whilst fielding called Finn 'Finndog' (?) and Berg 'The Bergermeister' (usual spelling!)

For those who don't know Hifi for Finn came from the Scotland trip last year where he supported a large pair of headphones and looked like the cartoon charater 'hifi' from the raggy dolls!

Adam London was also known as 'fingers' last year after batting with broken/dislocated ones bless

Newman also answers to 'gobby' after you can hear him shouting and..... can't think of the word... sledging the batsman whilst in the field.

I could think of a few things I have called Gilchrist in the past.... by he playing for Middx now so I wont mention them!

And I've just bought his book... If the words are anything like the photos it'll be a good read...

Scott Newman is 'Randy' to my group - after the American singer, and not due to any knowledge of his love life!

No Pedro in the glossary , surely "the shadow" becomes appropriate then ?.

Love to see him ghost a few batsmen in T20 mode , how many game s he gets who knows , if it's none "the invisible man" becomes rather apossite .

IOB was continually referring to Owais as Oasis on the Lecis commentary the other day.

David Warner could have been Morgan (a suitable a case for treatment) if we didn't already have the captain.

I've seen Sailor used for AC by a legendary poster elsewhere. No idea why. And Monkeyhanger for ASBO as well.

Last season I'm sure I heard HiFi shouting (well, speaking in a slightly embarrassed way) "Come on, the apprentice" as Big Al came into bowl.

I did like Robert Croft shouting "Come on Dai" last year at Swansea as his captain, Jamie Dai Rymple, came in to bowl.

Surely Mr Dalyrmple is known as Dai in Glamorgan because of his origins - Middlesex Till He Dai.

Well spotted the absences etc.

A slightly fixed version will be up in a jiffy.

Keep the comments coming......

On 9th May I wrote "In the England dressing room, it appears that Steven Finn has been given the nickname of 'Avatar' due to his height while he has told a few newspapers and magazines that for similar reasons his uncle called him 'X-ray boy'.

According the Guardian, Tom Smith's nickname when he was at Sussex was "The Seaford Plumber"".

On 18th May I wrote that Adam Gilchrist's nickname of Churchy was born out of an autograph hunter once asking him "Are you Adam Gilchurch?". The story can be found in the Hounslow Chronicle, Wembley Observer, Ealing Gazette, Uxbridge Gazette, Staines News, Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle, Woking Informer and Surrey Herald

Churchy? Actually legend has it that one very young and extremely enthusiastic fan downunder was asked for Adam Gilchurch's autograph, and the moniker stuck.

No Mr C (Cricket) in the lineup? Surely there's one player in the squad who suffers to the nth degree for their craft?

Come to think of it, I'm a little stuck for a suggestion myself...no Hussies in here. Perhaps when Scotty returns?

With IOB's recent contributions to BBC London internet coverage and the Spin magizine evening out surely "Outside Broadcast" has a chance as a nickname for hime .

Can someone please tell Vic Marks that the Iceman is Gareth Berg, not Eoin Morgan. Marks refers to Morgan as the Iceman. His temperament at the crease may be befitting of being called the Iceman, but his surname isn't.

On the subject of players' nicknames, my dad has a habit of referring to Tim Murtagh as 'Hi-Fi', and he claims that is due to Murtagh doing high fives whenever he takes a wicket. Hi-Fi is of course Steven Finn.

I guess Vic doesn't read MTWD JW and as his audience is "slightly" larger than ours he can get away with calling people what he likes , I can see his point as well , as a finisher Moggy has ice in those viens of his . Trouble will be the confusion it will cause Kimmy on his return to County colours .

Re: MTWD Glossary 2.0
Jonathan Winsky 03 July, 2010 19:38
I would like Vic Marks to stop writing about Eoin Morgan full stop as tonight he wrote in the Guardian that Middlesex may no longer be able to keep hold of him.

You know how people on MTWD think. Last night I said that David Warner will be unable to play v Somerset at Taunton tomorrow, and it made people speculate that he had been dropped or his spell at Middlesex had come to an end.

I suppose if Morgan breaks into the England Test side then it would make little difference to Middlesex whether or not he held a contract with us as he would seldom be available, although that would simply lessen how attracted the other counties would be to signing him, a similar situation to Kevin Pietersen. I have read in a couple of newspapers that Morgan lives in Finchley, so I don't see why he would want to play for any county other than Middlesex.

We could always call our new captain 'sexy' as in sexy dexy, however I'm not sure how the male fans would feel about shouting it out and how he would feel hearing it!

Or, having watched the 20/20 last night he thinks he looks like Shaun pollock... What a load of Pollocks that it, but calling him pollock might be funny?

If pollock comes into it Kimmy surely "Colin" will do ?

Google search colin/pollock you young'uns !!
