    Icon8 Somerset v Derby 21-24 April 2004

    I was very disappointed in the way our skipper approached the last day of the match. Presumably he was acting on the instructions of the esteemed coach, but surely - just over 2 and a half runs an over - and making sure we did not lose before trying to win. I have a feeling - the same feeling as at the start of last season - we have no ambition! Mike Burns has been quoted as saying 'no more Mr Nice man!' - if the attitude today is being nasty God help us all! I've always understood you have to sometimes take risks to win - could we get promoted with 16 drawn games? I thought we were told he had his strongest bowling team out!

    Welcome to the forums.. Where you from in Somerset?

    if you want ambition, then take a look at what our "esteemed chairman" said on the radio last week... (its in my sig)

    Just enjoy the sunshine and the cricket, and forget about ambition, because I dont think it exists any longer...

    Don't forget this is against arguably the worst side in the country [sorry Derby fan(s)].

    It's another season of division two for all money.

    We pummeled them actually... It was a scorcher of a day and the runs flowed, it was the best Somerset performance in the field that ive seen for a long time though (extras were far too high)...

    Caddick, Laraman and McLean bowled with a lot more pace than I expected when they pitched the ball up.. The pitch is stupidly dead as usual, its quite funny seeing them try to bowl bouncers on it...

    Derbyshire were good in the field but they looked completely anonymous with the bat except Graham Welch. If DiVenuto is with them this year, they are missing not having him around...

    Photos to come in this thread tomorrow James if you are reading then i will email you some tomorrow mate

    Hang about. Are we talking the Somerset v Derbyshire game from last week, the one where Hasan Adnan scored an undefeated ton in the first innings? Graham Welch went in number 9 and scored the same (9). 10 points to 9 sounds a real pummelling, as does setting 284 to win in 2 hours.

    Di Venuto is out for the entire season - he had surgery on his back. They're also missing the irreplaceable Cork, of course.

    Rich is talking about the NCL game on the following Sunday when Somerset won by 100+ runs and Welch bludgeoned thirty-something with a couple of sixes.

    OK. I thought it was a follow-on to Bob Andrews' post castigating the captaincy (implied)
