In our house, lying is never forgiven. Our daughter knows it very well. If I catch anyone lying just once, I never can trust that person. Then again, can you trust any politician? BD politician or not.

From my viewpoint, I have been a successful Head Coach with Dhaka Gladiators and was asked to return by Mustafa Kamal in February to be with the national team in some capacity. I have heard nothing from the BCB since.

In life, you can only ever judge people by their actions and not their words. This is never more true than in Bangladesh. Those of us who have worked there understand that.

Your post showed that you truly are a sage. However, I would say that there still are a lot of honest men and women in Bangladesh. I met quite a few in Bangladesh this summer. They proved their honesty by their actions, not words.

I was raised by my parents with the understanding that a promise or a commitment must be kept to fulfillment even if it breaks your back...next time don't make such promises! I was taught by my religion that the laborer must be paid for his work "before the sweat from his brow dries." Clearly those who made deals with Coach Fountain and those who contracted you to coach in BPL weren't raised with such ideals.

But knowing this, people like you and Richard McInnes have the passion to continue and try to help a nation that really doesn't care to help herself. We as fans can only salute you and wish we had the same conviction in our day to day lives.

So I ask you, why wait for the BCB, why not put in an offer for the HC job yourself? Get your people to talk to their people. We could use a guy who unlike Pybus is under no false assurance of what to expect once the plane lands.

When will they get a permanent coach? Did they even make a short list?

They should take notes from the Lakers.

Making Nazza! coach and captain will solve all of our problems, including cricket related ones. Give it a go and see what happens before presuming anything.

In the meantime, it's great to almost always run into the coaching staff at the North End Coffee Roasters. Always in uniform with their iPads, Facebooking the week away.

We don't have any international games after WI series for like 4/5 months. SO whats the point of hiring a coach now? To give him paid vacations?
All the national players will be busy with NCL franchises, DPL and BPL after WI series is over.

BCB has enough time to think about a new coach. BCB always hire good head coaches for national team. Have patience guys.

Hang on a minute.. wasn't this the very point that successive head coaches made about wanting to go home when there was no coaching for them to do?

And haven't successive head coaches been slammed for wanting to be away from Bangladesh?

You either have an active Head Coach who works with players or you don't, but you cannot have it both ways if they want time with their family because they have nothing to do....
