    Surrey vote of confidence

    The Surrey board have vowed to stick behind their manager, despite 2 relegations this season, since he did a fine job the season before.

    An anonymous member of the board said - "At least we get to visit new places next season"
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Well Marc it's been nice knowing you

    Managers dread that vote of confidence, they are always sacked within a week after it.

    how much did you pay the board Marc? 5 wins out of 20 matches. A stunning 25% success rate. You r supporters must have expected so much, but you gave them back so little. You made them believe your bowlers sh.t didn't smell, but as the season begun it was suddenly smelt from all corners.

    Tell me at home games, what kind of reception do you get?

    If anyone knows how the bowling attack that was the best in the game in Season 2 could all suddenly become rank in one go, can they let me know? It made absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    they were always playing above their weight that season, and this season their normal abilities come out to show...
