  1. Given recent stories about his 'off-field activities' and trials in Ireland, it was, in fact, a genuine, albeit somewhat tongue-in-cheek, question.
  2. Due to a realistic desire to sign him or in order to receive compensation?
  3. Very Silly. The first innings run out was unnecessary, but why take such a risk when you still have 5 wickets in hand, are approaching the close of play and remain with a reasonable chance of winning tomorrow as the pitch is easing?
  4. Not only is Tom Abell a fine bowler, but he also has this wonderful knack for breaking partnerships. I just wonder why he doesn't bring himself on to bowl more often.
  5. COVE has just dismissed Adam Hose for the second time in the match, LBW for 4 have been dismissed in a similar manner in the first innings, although for only 2. I do feel sorry for AH; he showed promise for Somerset as a youngster, but left for 'better climes', and I am sure he would have been desperate to show Somerset what they were missing.
  6. Well, that could change things: Sibley out, caught at slip off Leach. Snap Tumbles!
  7. It certainly raised a smile with me, and, I must confess, as soon as I saw his picture, football socks (yellow, if I recall correctly) was probably the first thought that came in to my mind. Nevertheless, when the poor lad is obviously struggling, in more ways than one, I just thought it 'unfortunate' that the Bristol Post comments were belittling rather than supportive.
  8. Indeed. A certain Phantom74 suggested: 'I heard he is good at selling football socks?' Not our own @phantom surely. I seem to recall some time ago that posters on this forum were requested to go lightly with 'Hopesy', as I believe he was called.
  9. Especially now they are 1 down - Rhodes out for a duck, caught behind off Gregory.
  10. He retired hurt in a Seconds match today, so not any time soon. Unfortunately, he is a doubt for Saturday. I see that @TomF has mentioned this awful news already.
  11. I suggested earlier that we might be 5 0r 6 down by 15H00. It now looks as if we could reach this position at lunch and might not even still be batting come 15H00.
  12. I am waiting with fingers crossed for Trescothick to finally get a score, failing which I fear for his future, certainly at Taunton.
  13. All Out. We were looking at Leach's figures, which started off quite amazingly, but COVE's were pretty immpresive as well - 5/31 off 16 overs with 8 maidens.
  14. I suspect Markram (South Africa) may also be forbidden from playing - if so, it rather diminishes the match. Another maiden for Leach, by the way.
  15. Quite a good start this morning....110/6 to 110/9!
