    I think we might have reached saturation point with Fletch... look for better, longer words in an upcoming feature...

    Tom Moddy and Bob Woolmer are far better coaches than Fletcher and would do a better job.

    It's more of a case of who wouldn't, really.

    Disturbingly enough, Chappell might be available even if we win a series in SA (making it two successive away series won outside the subcontinent, which would be two more than the amount won in 20 years). It would depend on how we do in WC.

    Crazy bunch, us Indians. If he's available, he wouldn't be a bad person for the job. I think he is a very good coach, and so is Tom Moody I think.

    So youre saying the County Championship structure is right as Kolpak's can strengthen the comp?

    No, he's saying that because of the employment laws meaning the ECB cannot stop Kolpaks, that reducing the number of teams would probably mean a large reduction in places available for English players.

    Youth, Club and Second xi need Tweaking, it time for a overhaul as players get lost, and are in a comfort zone

    You say "tweaking"... that suggests minor alterations.

    Ideally would be a grade-style system where clubs have several different levels of sides, feeders up/down and a strong community basis for young players to progress; but because of the way towns and villages are in the UK, that is impossible, and we have to have a system that supports the County Championship.

    It wasn't bad 15 months ago...

    In Sydney and Other States around Australia we all have a grade comp of 12-20 Teams Underneath the big one NSW or whatever this seems to work quite well and Sydney Grade is the strongest local comp in the world I would think it be higher than County level if you ask me many a county player come each year and struggle and end up in 2nd and 3rd grade.
