  1. Cheltenham defending strongly, if somewhat crudely. Fair play tothe BBC: Sean Long on for George Lloyd for Cheltenham and he will play scrum half.
  2. Some (too many) years ago, I used to frequent a rather pretentious wine bar in Ascot prior to a weekend evening out. Whilst my regular pre-dinner drink was invariably a dry white wine, a young, attractive, but equally pretentious hostess (more fur coat and no knickers, if truth be told) would often try to tempt me to try one of their ridiculously overpriced apéritifs or cocktails. I would always decline, but, boorish young man that I was (little has changed, apart from my age), I would often delight in asking her whether she had a particular French vermouth. As I am sure you are
  3. I suspect you may have misunderstood the purpose of the ‘multiple post’ function
  4. Of course, it is very easy to say that JH should have been selected, but difficult at that time to say who should have been dropped - unless you are biased towards Somerset players . Incidentally, I am sure that, whatever the official MCC site might say, there are three Somerset players in the current England team.
  5. I'm not really sure about that. The current pitch has benefited from a prolonged spell of hot, dry weather, whereas weather conditions for the First Test included some extreme rainy spells.
  6. He will be almost 40 by the end of the 2022 season, which will mark 20 years a Somerset player and, in the traditional sense of the word, an icon of this Century! I still consider it a travesty that he was never awarded an England cap, although, of course, he did 'play' for England in the Ashes at Lords, where he caught his former teammate, Ricky Ponting .
  7. That was my proposed solution, although it would seem that Shift Key is the correct one.
  8. Angelo Mathews, who scored a fine century today, reckons it will start turning tomorrow if it stays hot - quite possible in Sri Lanka at this time of the year , especially as there is no rain forecast. Whilst that might assist Jack Leach and Dom Bess tomorrow, it does not bode well for England, especially as, unless they make a massive first innings score, they will be batting last.
  9. Well, would you believe it? JET was man of the match.
  10. Worse, would be the pedants saying that it is 'bearing' gifts .
  11. To be fair, I had seen snippets of Szmodics before we signed him, and I must say I thought he was quite a useful player and, as with Liam Walsh, I was looking forward to seeing him break in to the team. A shame for all parties concerned that it didn't work out.
  12. Surprisingly , he is turning out to be quite some player - a goalscoring midfielder at Peterborough, just the sort pf player we should be signing. I appreciate it is easy with hindsight and, of course, we were overwhelmed with midfielders when we let him go, but it doea seem a shame as, apparently, he really liked it here.
