    Based on what happened to Middlesex last season we should probably be choosing Essex for relegation!
    What we are doing here is future-proofing county cricket

    We want to make the game as simple as possible for them (mums and kids) to understand

    There was no wisdom in any of these predictions. Just a gut feeling to get the ball rolling lol

    I wonder of Keats rediscovers his form at Lancashire. He was actually more value as a bowler last season, his batting was so bad. If Onions stays fit that is also a good signing for Lanky but he spent the majority of last season on the treatment table so be warned.

    Some predictions,

    I think Kyle Abbott's wickets might keep Hants up - just. Surrey are going down post-Sangakarra I feel; you cannot lose those runs and not plummet. I have a sneaky feeling that Notts might go down for some reason. Middlesex will probably bounce back up. Kent or Northants also. I'm not sure who'll win the thing.

    I'm assuming Jennings and Hameed will open with Davies dropping to the middle order - I hope he's cool with that

    Jennings career is odd. He was a semi-**** to serviceable opener ave 20-30, got dropped at the end of 2015 and then had this freakishly great season in 2016 where his average jumped to 64. Last season he started well but then his form collapsed again - dropped from England also.

    Can’t see it ending well for Kent given they’ve lost Coles and are trying to force Northeast out the same door...

    If northeast left id assume hed prefer to stay south. But the whole point of moving is to play div 1. Surrey needing to replace sanga makes them favorites id say
    Middlesex need signings. I never thought rayner was top draw that was a one off season in my opinion and i expected him to drop off last year. Finn is finished, helm will play lots of white ball for england, trj will carry the drinks and malan will play all forms. Cant see us bouncing back up at all

    Not sure how you can say Kent are forcing Northeast out when he turned down a contract extension.

    Iím expecting Jennings to bat 3 for Lancs. Would be a shame to move Davies

    The Northeast situation is interesting, he hasn't signed an extension to his contract but presumably he is still under contract. As a result of not extending his stay they have taken the captaincy off him which I guess has forced his hand a little. I don't blame Kent for wanting some commitment off their captain and if he wants to move on then I understand why Northeast hasn't signed a new deal.

    So who do we think are likely destinations for him ? Hampshire have registered their interest, presumably Notts having missed out on Jennings might be in for him. Would Yorkshire be tempted following their struggles last season ? I don't think Essex will make a move but he surely fits the Surrey criteria, wouldn't be surprised to see them make a move.

    Lancs look like they are building a squad to have a right go at the title, might end up being harmed if Hameed or Jennings or both got back in the England side but the way we select these days (Vince) we have no clue what they will do. Think Lancashire may be able to do the old Warwickshire title winning way of scoring big runs and allowing scoreboard pressure to tell later on and not lose many at all over the season.
