The County Cricket Thread

Did anyone go to the Q & A after play yesterday with Guy Lavender and Matt Maynard?

I was at the day's play but left before the end, so fed up I couldn't be bothered to wait around for it.

Under Brian Rose we behaved like one of the wealthiest best supported counties that we are.

Under this regime, we seem to have gone back to the days when we were the poor cousin of the county cricket scene.

Thinking that giving us Chris Gale for a few matches, good though he was, just doesn't wash with most members. I think we're the second longest standing first division team, the club has all but thrown in the towel as far the championship goes, making half hearted attempts to do well in the T 20 by signing Gale, Anderson and Allenby, ignoring the LV leaving us relegation bound which is such a shame.

The Red Rose march to the Div 2 title continues. We'll probably go straight back down again next year like, but nice to see all the same. If anything our batting lineup this year is stronger than in Div 1 last year, getting Petersen was a good bit of work.

 

We've got a quick bowler from Zimbabwe called Kyle Jarvis, arrived last year and struggled to even make the 2nds. This term he has 57 FC wickets by the middle of June. He can spray it a bit, and regularly goes at 4 an over, but is bloody rapid.

Will be attending our annual away victory in Bristol.

Remember going in there last year after the game singing city songs some local gas kid got all fiery

No idea of names of stands, as you go in neville Road entrance there is usually a small marquee with a bar in it, usually stand around there. Had a great laugh with Gloucestershire and Somerset fans last season

 

 

It's a cricket match, keep the City songs for the football season.

This is absolutely spot on, the Chris Gayle thing has just been a complete farce, and the powers that be at Somerset seem to think his three appearances are papering over the many cracks of the team.

 

I thought things couldn't get any worse after last season, but things are certainly looking bleak at the moment

We'll welcome you back to the basement for 2016 ;)

Bugger - that puts the Super Pears bottom of the lot

 

We are just shockingly bad this year, which doesn't surprise me. Batting line up is terrible, I'm not sure Gidman has scored 100 runs in total as yet, and the 2nd innings fold is becoming law around these parts. Not that I expected us to stay up, but I'd hope for better than getting done by those ******* Bears in two days

 

So, what has gone on at Somerset to change things so dramatically? Must have missed something, but as you've all alluded to, you are one of the big boys, a well run club (or were), now you're scratching around for your lives
