    Class match between South Africanand Sri Lanka. Amazing finish and win for the away team.

    Yeah Dubravka made an arse of it even though he was fouled. He was trying make sure we won the game by get a hold of it (something he's usually done very well) but given the pressure he was under, a punch would have been much safer. I'd in no way be in favour of dumping him a this stage though. He's been very good for us much more than he's made errors that have cost. And Scharr should have blocked off the goal scorer like Lascelles did with the other player.

    I know they are missing Holder this match and certainly haven't been helped by the injuries, but playing a correctly balanced team with an actual top order, even a far from great one, has helped massively I think. Jennings will be, deservedly, jettisoned after this match and unless he completely remodels his technique you can't see him getting back in. Christ knows who's going to replace him though. Apparently Nick Gubbins is one who they have looked at but his average is nothing to write home about. Roy looks as deserving as anyone as at least he's shown himself to be more than capable against top class bowlers. But of course that's not in red ball cricket so we'd be just about back to square one in terms of playing middle order players in the top order.

    Great to see Wood come back at a real pace yesterday. The last few times I've seen him he's looked like he'd lost something but whether it's down to his fitness or his new run up, he was superb yesterday. Just in the nick of time for him too with Stone coming into the squad and Archer likely to get some sort of call up in the near future.

    Yeah I looked it up on IMDB. It looks interesting, I'll try and see if I can get it online somewhere. Alita. Absolute dogshit (although not as bad as Robin Hood). The visuals and the fight scenes were pretty good but the script is fucking dreadful. I may have missed the point and maybe it's a kids film but it was a massive disappointment given the people involved.

    Root's comments about not winning games by scoring slowing were ridiculous really. The only player we have who seems to trying to convert to playing in a 'test' way is Stokes. But he's probably the player, given that he's the all rounder, that want to play in the way the rest of them are. The top order is the real problem though, the stroke players can't come in and play their way because the bowlers aren't being tired and ball isn't being worn. But when you look at which top order batsmen are scoring runs in County Cricket all you have is Burns and Hildreth (who's 34 I think) and Bell in division two. I think Roy may as well be given a chance even if he's just told to go out and get a quick score. That might not do the wearing down job of an opener but it might mean that by the time we're a couple of wickets down we have some sort of score on the board.

    I'm not sure what that film is but this is very much in colour.

    Aye I think they need to look at changing how they do things. I suppose to be fair they recognised how far we'd fallen behind in white ball cricket and changed things successfully there but I think it's been to the detriment of the test team. I think that might be partly because of having Bayliss as coach. He's definitely more of a white ball coach. I think it may be time to look at splitting the role after his contracts ends.

    The batting has been utterly pathetic so far. I hope Hammeed has a massive return to form at the start of the county season because we're seriously lacking in a top order.

    Overlord. Was ok but a bit disappointing after the trailer looked really good.

    Not to make light of this, as it's clearly terrible news if something has happened to them as it looks like, but I must admit my first thought was there's another excuse for Ashley not to break our transfer record!

  13. Mike Ashley -- Football Cunt

    The FA are as much to blame as anyone for allowing football to be ruined for tens of thousands (if not more) of supporters of clubs throughout the country. There's no chance they'll ever do anything about it unless something catastrophic happens to Liverpool or Man Utd either.
  14. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    Of course it's mental. Unfortunately premier league players are on mental money, even the ones who play for us. And when we put ourselves in the position of weakness that we have done, half decent players won't come to us on the cheap. We won't pay any significant fees out while Ashley is here.
