Where and What are we - Introspection Episode 1
During a slow day at Taunton I sat talking to a couple of people whose views I respect and a bloke I didn't know who doesn't like me or Grocklesit seems (possibly because I don't think our individual views have 'meshed' online at some time in the past). Both camps commented on the fact that the site had changed over time. For the better? For the worse? Was it fact or perception? Well now's as good as any time to investigate that and test the wind. Join the chat......
Royal London - a competition too far or THE 3rd Format?
As we reach the end of the group stage of the 50 over competition with the semis coming hot foot on the last game and the final squeezed into the actual season rather than being an event at the end of it one has to ask "wither the 50 over?"
Somerset Day. Ireland Day.........
Happy Somerset Day one and all. Hampshire are our opponents today at Taunton on a day when Ireland become a Test nation in more than just name as they take on Pakistan at Malahide. George Dockrell has unfortunately not made the side for their first game but will be there on the radio and we wish all Irish cricket players the best in a hard game. Hampshire at Taunton? Will we keep the momentum going?
Watcher at the End of Time
It's all over the place.The discussions about the game and its future. If you are a long term cricket watcher then you are being told you are watching the 'end of Empire', the last throes of a dying sport being kicked to death by its own governing body. But the games I see are more thrilling and full of excitement than many I've watched over my time and I'm talking about every format. Where it this all coming from?
No UberT20 at Taunton
Well its not a surprise, we knew this one well in advance but it has been interesting watching the suprise of others who it seems weren't aware of this strange decision to remove 'premier' short form cricket from the South West, unless, as some have,you try and say Southampton and Cardiff are in the region!! Here's the club's response.
On Monday Mr Cooper presides over his first Annual General Meeting at the County Ground. Mr Nash takes the top table for the last time and Andy Hurry is back for another but in a different position. What are we expecting?
Is it all new? Welcome to 2018
Happy New Year to one and all. 2018 arrives and it's less than 100 days to the first CC1 game of the new season and we are the side there by the skin of our teeth. What does this year hold I wonder? Here's a few things to ponder.
Monday Fun and Frolics
Mr Lee Cooper meets people tomorrrow to clarify the 'exciting' new membership packages announced last week. Some members are really excited and would like that clarification. One of our newer posters Steve Allison has very kindly allowed me to prooduce his letter to Mr Cooper with some information some of the rest of you might like. Thanks very much Steve
PHEW!! The end of 2017 was 'interesting'
OK so it seems we have still got a First Division four day pedigree that keeps us out in front of everyone else (at least in terms of time served in CC1) but it was a close call and it is still not 100% certain in the eyes of some (me included). But isn't that always the way for all Somerset supporters? The fat lady seems to be a little tardy in singing when it relates to us. If the situation does not change then massive comisserations to our SN friends in Middlesex and especially those at MTWD. I am constantly amazed at the good humour and courtesy many cricket website users show to each other in times of high competition. Many of the posters from MTWD posted some high quality stuff about their situation and ours over the last few days and it has been greatly appreciated by many. We are happy we got the result we needed but are, in the main, heartedly sorry it was at your expense and hope you bounce back in one season to the top level.
Somerset v Lancs Part Deux
A good performance which has to be split in two for our mobile viewers because of the number of posts. Cold but dry morning at Taunton and Jack Leach is already on at 11:30 to discuss the Lankies ability to play spin on this Third morning. Tanks to Bagpuss for starting the second thread and thanks once again to Farmer White for the front page description of the second day.
