    Looking foward to anothe underwelming CC for Yorkshire, Younis Khan better do well, although I knew we should have recruited Mohammed Yousuf.

    They've just signed a whole new bowling attack?

    Me too. Seriously considering converting to Hampshire. We're just too dire for words.

    Might see a bit more of Lancashire this year, given school finishes mid-June. Unfortunately, that coincides with the Twenty20.

    Only reall interested in the Championship, TBH. Twenty20 is alright, I suppose, until your team gets knocked out, but I can't see myself watching much of the one-day stuff this year. I would do if they had a proper knockout, plus a proper 50-overs league competition, but it's a shambles the way it is.

    Lancashire & Hampshire will be favourites in division. Hoping that Lancashire can finally win the title.

    Players wise looking to see:

    - big season for Steve Davies

    - big season for Rashid

    - presuming England will have its first choice attack back, the likes of Broad, Plunkett, Onions, Tremlett to have solid seasons with the ball.

    - The forgotten Gillespie to have a big season with Yorksh*te thus pushing for a place along with the Johnson/Tait/Hilfenhaus to partner Lee/Clark next Australian summer.

    Think we'll miss Knight a lot this year. With Wagh going as well our batting will probably be very reliant on Love. There's Maddy as well, but I've never really rated him that much.

    Bowling probably won't look that good either, I'm assuming we've lost Harris seeing as he's played for South Africa. Streak'll lead the attack again, being backed up by some young fast/medium bowlers. We might also have Gilo back, seeing as he's unlikely to figure for England again.

    Langer is carrying on though, and Cameron White, they were Immense against Gloucstershire in the Twenty20 last year.

    Don't need to tell me mate, I was there. Quality performance. Still though, we're going to need a lot more than just two batsmen if we're going to compete. Some bowlers might help.

    I watched it on Sky, White must have hit it out of the ground at least 3 times, they were monster, and we wasn't slogging either, beautiful hits.

    Lucky bastard. Seriously I haven't renewed my membership of Somerset because I'm not going to give money to them to waste on a ridiculous scheme to bring a Test to Taunton instead of trying to do better in what really counts.

    I think Essex have a good chance of promotion this year because the pace attack should be a bit stronger with Nel and Bichel being available at different points and hopefully Tudor hitting some form and the young lads coming through. The batting is certainly strong enough.

    Yeah, some gigantic hitting. The game after that against Warwickshire, he hit Heath Streak back over his head, out of the ground, onto the Sky truck outside. He wasn't even wearing a helmet at the time.
