Default Fire Whatmore

Fire whatmore now! What more can he show us? It looks like BD team is trying to keep scores. They should not be score keepers but score makers. Also players that played irresponsibly should give back the air tickets that was spent to send them to UK. We always say BD won against Zimbawbe. THey are the worst team and non of the star players are playing in that team. Make the BD pitches similar to Lords; then the players won't be able to say this and that. Nachte na janle uthan baka. Shameful display.

we should never say something like this, if Bangladesh achieve something big in the near future, it will solely be because of Dav Whatmore.

I THINK THIS THREAD SHOULD END WITH THIS POST.

Thanks

Yes... Fire Whatmore. His mind/soul is no more with our team. He thinks that by coaching Bangladesh, his career is hampering.

We should find someone we really want to coach our team + has the ability to do so.

Where can we find masochists on such short notice though?

This is just rubbish! Firing Whatmore doesnt solve anything at all for the moment. If we are going to achieve something we have to do it with Whatmore. We have to remember that he is just a human being not a dam magician.

calm down lads, i dont think there is anything wrong because whatmore. because he came to my uncles restaurent in Durham and i met him, i did ask him that why the player performed very bad, he said i cant do any thing because i dont have any power, the manager is everything, [MODERATED UNTIL THE INFO IS VERIFIED], at the morning what more fixed a timetable which is everyone has to wake up at 8am to go for practice in riverside where the player still sleeping until 9am even the mana, so whatmore walk round the place waiting for them to get up. when they go to practice the batsman sees 2 ball incase of one ball coming to them, so i wont blame whatmore he tried his best with those idiots. he said he will leave if they do same as loards. i think hes totally annoyed. i wont blame him.

MODERATOR NOTE:

Member has posted some very serious allegations which need to be verified. I have removed the nasty allegations for now!

care to suggest us who are we supposed to replace him with???

easy to say fire bashar, fire whatmore....if it was a team like india or australia, your suggestion would have made sense, but in bd, we got the best captain (out of all the players, has to be bashar) and the world's best known coach......

if we cant prove ourself after all this, then doom on this whole team......

Welcome to the board kisermatin.
And I strongly suggest not to post any comments/threads which solely aim to raise controvercy rather than positive/thoughtfull discussion!

Enjoy your stay.

Is it after the second test? Are you sure Dav said exactly what you quoted on your post?
I am confused! MA Latif blame Dav and Dav blame MA Latif ( the manager ). Sounds bad to me.

See other thread on MA Latif's comment

You know what? You have the right to post anything that you heard. AND it is very difficult to corroborate what you wrote right now. But as it is quite serious, you know what? I am going to do that. I will personally call up the manager to verify what you wrote. So if you have made up all that, now is the time to remove it from the board. Other wise i advise everyone to read it as BASELESS RUMOUR.

One bad series; that is against England and you want to fire the best coach we had by far.
Just exactly who do you want to hire as a coach?
Is there anyone better than Dav who is willing to coach this team.

What are you smoking KaiserMatin?
What do you want Whatmore to do?
Whatmore will not go in the middle and play it for you!
The players have to do it.

I think we should seriously stop bashing coaches for our own sake. As a cricket nation, we don't yet have too many professionals playing the game. The results show that we have not mastered the idea of professionalism yet. Amidst all of this, Mr. Whatmore stands one island hope who could potentially instill some principles of professionalism. I am sorry to hear Dav setting time for prctive at 8:00 AM (if it is true). If I were him, I would set the time 5:00 AM for everyone.

Back to the point of bashing coach: really, we lost good coaches like Greenidge in the past for simply lacking professionalism. Bangladesh cricket does not lack talent, or potential. Only thing we are missing is the drive to succeed. In other words: professionalism. Please leave Dav. out. On a related note, I can certainly appreciate an authoritarian as McInes for Bangladesh team. I think Dav and McInes can play "Good Cop", "Bad Cop" in tandem.

KaisarMatin please clarrify your post a little bit more for us. Why do u think whatmore should be fired? Do u have reasons like this:

1. He dont have the real passion to coach Bangladesh anymore?
2. Do u think McInnes would be better than whatmore?
If u think so why do u think so?
3. Is coaching Bangladesh ruinning whatmore's carrier?
4. Is he not successful enough?
5. Is he driving just for money like writing sports column in the various printed and electronic media?

You might have other good reasons to fire him. I dont know. Please clariffy your post when you post something that important
