Peaches - I agree entirely that Somerset must not be relegated.

The Somerset v Middlesex match would have turned out not to have been a relegation decider if Hampshire had lost the next day. Would supporters have retrospectively felt deprived if the gut-wrenching tension (not that there was much of that, I fear) had turned out to have bee "meaningless"? I think not.

While a "nine and nine" move would be a bit different, in that it is not something that happened on the field, the retrospective impact on the Taunton match would be exactly the same, so why feel deprived, cheated or whatever?

I am not expecting, or particularly advocating, such an outcome but I can't see how Somerset or their supporters would be hurt in the slightest.

Creosote's illegal now, is't it? I've heard the expression somewhere before but can't pin it down - song lyric perhaps?
