    Into the fifth round of the BT20, with a nine wicket win over Div.IV County Connells.

    County Connells 158/1, Keen 79 (66), Drench 66* (49), Bewers 1/23
    Cymru Gurgitaters 161/1 (19), Staveley 93* (60), Greening 32 (25), Noon 30* (25)

    Ratings on TIE.
    Cymru Gurgitaters County Connells
    Top Order: remarkable superb
    Middle Order: respectable respectable
    Lower Order: woeful feeble
    Seam Bowling: strong strong
    Spin Bowling: respectable proficient
    Fielding: feeble mediocre
    *
    MOTM: Staveley

    In Hindsight, took a bit of a risk TIEing. PANing tomorrow against Mind Twindows Tino, who, like me, have just been promoted to Div.III. They have more batting depth, but no stars, our bowling is roughly equal.

    Nandon, be bloody careful with that bank balance! Unless it's back under -£300K by tomorrow, then you'll only have five log-ins to save your team from bankrupcy. Do you not have any £150/£200K bankers to put on the market, just to be on the safe side?

    Later, Trev

    Managed to sneak through today, in what was my first real test in this season's BT20 comp.

    Code:
           Withington  Up the Irons
    Top:   Quality     Wonderful
    Mid:   Proficient  Proficient
    Bot:   Abysmal     Abysmal
    Seam:  Remarkable  Wonderful
    Spin:  Masterful   Wonderful
    Fld:   Mediocre    Woeful
    That was against a fairly decent III side...hopefully I'll be up against some proper fodder tomorrow!

    The worrying thing is my batting ratings (on a TIE) aren't much better than yours.

    Ugh, I wasted another $35,000 last night on the transfer market. That's $235,000 spent when I'm drunk now. I'm not logging onto Battrick while under the influence anymore.

    Players are aging tomorrow, which means that wages should be recalculated as well. My biggest increases will be Canning (currently 30,988), Terry (5,582), Potgieter (2,913) and Burger (702). Total wages currently at 63,983. Canning's wont be pretty at all, and I suspect Terry could be getting pretty high.

    Yeah mine will jump a fair amount, I'll be fine with my 80k interest though.

    How come your wages are so low? You get quite good ratings for 63k.

    My salaries are 98k and my ratings don't really show it. Though I do have pessimistic morale at the moment, which hasn't been affected by winning 7 20/20 games, lost a serious number of members too which hurts.

    Watkins will go up to 100k or so, Downer 80-ish, Ashton 35. My total wage bill will be 350k+ depending on who I end up buying. Actually looking forward to the age/wage updates as they usually settle the market a little.

    He has Canning bumping up all his ratings. If you take him out he'd get ****ty ratings.

    Indeed. I'd be replacing a wonderful bat with a respectable or competent, and a sensational bowler with a respectable.

    I reckon im going to go bankrupt if i don't get a home FC and OD game first up. I wish I didn't waste 2m on strong/strong bowler. I guess im going to have to sell Ellis.

    Could someone perhaps remind me of the amount of money that we'll be getting from the FC games?

    Will it be like an OD everyday?

    Must say, without the subsidy, my finances are not looking too cool. Especially with the wage updates...
