'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
Neither Farmer or myself are there. Farmer is at a much more important event and I'm in Hamilton watching this on SKY where we have already been dubbed the 'nearly men' by Mark Butcher within seconds of switching on. It is definitely the media view that we are second favourites today. I'm happy with that view. Hampshire win the toss and will bat.

Back to the long stuff at the County Ground after the variable but eventually glorious 50 over competition. Marcus, the two Jacks and Steve return to the crease along and Farmer starts a four day opus on the proceedings.....
Hampshire take us apart at home in front of a full house. We bat for only 80% of our time and Hampshire need only just over 60% of theirs to put this one to bed. Not Somerset's finest hour in 2019 as Farmer White will now recount.
Kent RLODC Relentless
Tom Banton and Craig Overton have 'decent' days at the start of the Somerset Royal London One Day Cup as the side take a weakened Kent apart in pretty ruthless fashion. Farmer gives us the long view.
A first day where Lewis moved himself into the top echelons of the Championship with another storming bowling performance. As I'm doing this late I know what happened. Read the reports in order and pretend you don't know the result. Makes Farmer's muses more of a satisfying experience.
Somerset Rush Their Fences
The first of hopefully many Farmer White summaries of play. I will endeavour to put up Day 1 of any four day story and link into his website so you can get the rest of his labours. Thank you sir.... thankless task yesterday as the batting slumped from 140 for 5 to 171 all out. But I'll let the Farmer open up the vista for you.
A Month Out
Welcome to 2019 people. The Domestic Cricket season starts in about a month. The CC1 is either side of a mass of cricket in blocks and with a World Cup and an Ashes home series there's going to be a lot about. How does it all stand? Well maybe we ought to look at a few things.
Notts - (A Trent Bridge) too far CC1 Sept 2018
An update for the CC1 games as we frontpage them with the Framer White reports. I'll offer the first day report and leave it to you to either read the rest ont he thread attached or follow the link to the Farmer web site to follow on from there.
The Changing World
We have one season before the cricket world in the UK alters. Next year we will have an Ashes tour AND the World Cup in the British Isles and the mayhem to come related to that and THEN we have the new world of the 'Hundred' in 2020 which no one seems able to give concrete information on. Meanwhile the country is looking to leave the European Union in March of 2019 with no real infomration about how that affects 'kolpak' rulings (I doubt the government has much time to discuss cricket aspects) or the roles of 'Commonwealth' players. So the whole thing is in a state of flux.......
It has been a while
It has been a while since I did a frontpage. It has been a while since we got to the T20 Finals. It has been a while since we looked this good in a Championship run. Let's have a chat shall we?
