    Surrey (1) v Yorkshire (6) at the Oval 20-23 Sept 2022.

    As far as I can tell from the YCCC website Patto is pencilled in for this week's game V Gloucester (and following his stand-out performance for the bowlers in the Surrey game if there was such a thing) The item is almost (but not quite gushing) as he brings the curtain down on his career. Has...

    Quiz - Yorkshire 2015

    In the old days I'd either trust my memory or research it. But, damn, gave all my year books to charity so that somebody could complete their collections. Now I've seen your list Newby, I couldn't bet against it!

    Rugby Football 22-23

    Yes disappointment. That's 4 wins in this competition for St Helens on the trot, they are strong, skillful and have that extra bit of detetermination, the finished article. Leeds are not. Not yet. But for a season on in which they at one time seemed relegation material, Leeds have made great...

    So India women won the 3 match series 3 -0 against England with a run-out (Mankad?) I say, it's just not cricket. Standards and manners , oh dear. Not professionalism. Don't know why but I never expected this from a lady.

    The shape of things to come!

    All really good, well-researched and well-made points. I can't, so don't, do detail like that but I appreciate it!

    Rugby Football 22-23

    Strangely enough I know Ireland Avenue Beeston and coincidentally, I'm waiting for Notts County to come on the pitch at the LNER Community stafium v York City. County have an ex-York player , sod's law he' score. And professionalism doesn't mean losing human touches , just learning some new...

    The shape of things to come!

    I do like the logic of what you've set out DaveMorton 10/8 split with the aim to win, rather than playing with the constant fear of losing. I'm all for change, if it's an improvement. Prefer to keep what we have ( preferably without a Blundered though I know that's not open for discussion). I...

    Surrey (1) v Yorkshire (6) at the Oval 20-23 Sept 2022.

    Look, Donnylad if you've got something to say about the parentage of Strauss and the Board of the ECB for goodness sake, don't hold back, get it off your chest! Playing Dukes as stumper/batter and and Tatts as captain/batter/fielder/bowler(?) has merit (for the Gloucester game) I personally...

    Rugby Football 22-23

    Our Daughter lived at West Bridgford, Ken Clark was local MP and sometome chancellor, didn't agree with all his politics but I like him a lot. Daughter just bought a property a few mikes away at Beeston, lovely place but not convenient for me strolling to Trent Bridge or staying overnight...

    Off The Field continued

    Just clearing e-mails and out of interest checked out membership at Trent Bridge for next season: Senior £ 144 That's about £60 less than Headingley basically like for like as far as I can tell . I know they're Division 2 but hopefully not for long, Nice ground at Trent Bridge, good...

    The Rafiq case

    I assume from your presumption that Essex might have a top-heavy coaching staff, too many sponsors, quality players thinking about moving on and about £2mill going spare. Just as well they don't host Test Matches

    The shape of things to come!

    I recall speaking to some senior executives at a major British company. They were full of bu**sh** most of the time eg 'there are no problems, only opportunities' One thing I did take on board however was not to think and talk about change Instead, to think and talk about improvements A...

    Surrey (1) v Yorkshire (6) at the Oval 20-23 Sept 2022.

    Great descriptions Tykemania and byased, as though I was there. But I wasn't and didn't watch Livestream. I'm therefore speaking in ignorance (never stops me usually) Maybe Tatts, in addition to 'the over rate reasoning by' by Hawke, seeing the writing on the wall, thought that he would bowl...

    Surrey (1) v Yorkshire (6) at the Oval 20-23 Sept 2022.

    I think the applications and CV's for chief exec have to be sent to the ECB. They then toss a coin, look at tea leaves or spin a bat to decide.

    2nd Pakistan v England T20 complete turnaround. Salt and Hales seemed slow to accumulate runs, Malan a golden duck, Brook out to Rauf All five England wickets bowled, how often does that happen? England's bowlers failed to get a wicket . Bit of a pasting

    The Rafiq case

    I didn't see the item, but it does not surprise me. I don't mean the charges of racism but rather the route of going for the Parliamentary Privilege method of getting unchallenged allegations across rather than an evidence and witness based independent investigation. I'm not saying there...

    Surrey (1) v Yorkshire (6) at the Oval 20-23 Sept 2022.

    Not much I can add to all these carefully crafted and enjoyable insights I did notice though that so far Yorkshire have earned exactly 32 bowling points. Surrey have earned 32 bowling points also For batting it's 47 v 33 and only two teams have so far more batting points than Yorkshire (the...

    Surrey (1) v Yorkshire (6) at the Oval 20-23 Sept 2022.

    Lovely description of the game and your day too. I too would also be happy to give up my seat to Warks on the relegation bus

    The shape of things to come!

    I may have got the 'wrong end of the drift' in relation to The Shape of Things to Come by Dobell 20/09/22. However, under a photograph (I think of the late great Shane Warne), there is the following: "A County Championship restructure will be voted on by the 18 first class counties in the...
