News from God's Own County (TM) (aka Yorkshire)
 
BBC seems to think Moxon will be back along with Gough? But as what? Will we get Donald after all?

Fatslogger 1st March 2007 05:55

Gough is an interesting choice of captain isn't he? He says he can still bat and bowl, which seems a little self aggrandising to begin with but even he doesn't try to pretend he can field. Whether he'll be fit enough to play a major role remains to be seen. He's been paid an awful lot if he isn't fit for the whole season.

Some of my concerns over Gough have been assuaged a little....or perhaps the boundless optimism shown by many Yorks supporters on another site is rubbing off on me. Anyway, for the thousandth time this winter, the team that will probably (or rather, probably won't) face Surrey on April 18th is:

Sayers
White
Elliott
Rudolph
Wood/Gale/McGrath
Rashid
Brophy
Bresnan
Gough (c)
Gillespie
Hoggard

I can't say that side would fill me with fear were I a Surrey fan. The batting looks short to me. The attack isn't bad, mind, especially if Rashid has a useful season.

Rey 1st March 2007 13:27

The middle order looks a bit empty without Mags, but Bresnan, Gough and Gillespie are more than capable of sticking around, a la Chapple, Cork and Hogg at Lancs. The bowling will depend on which Dizzy decides to turn up

Rey 1st March 2007 17:40

And it looks like we've got our coach too. Juat a couple of pieces left in the jigsaw

High Druid Nathan Barley 1st March 2007 17:42

Am I being a bit slow, but has Byas been ditched. I assume he has for Gough to return?

Rey 1st March 2007 17:45

Yes, he's been ditched, and yes, you are slow ;) That happened 2 months ago

High Druid Nathan Barley 1st March 2007 17:48

I've had other priorities recently....

Rey 1st March 2007 17:52

I don't blame you. There's been so much coming out of Yorkshire this winter, it's damn hard to keep up.

Aye I've just seen this, I don't know whether this is good news or not... It must be overall... But this winter has seen my heart-strings tugged like NatashaX's banjo-string, and it's wearing me out.

Jon Wallflower 2nd March 2007 00:26

"Moxon said: "This has been a very difficult decision to make but the travelling from Wetherby [north Yorkshire] to Chester-le-Street has affected my ability to fulfil my responsibilities to the high standard that both I, and the club, demand."

Aye, that 45 minute commute must be a bloody killer, that. And we think Steve Harmison is soft?

V4never 2nd March 2007 08:37

I laughed when I saw that too - what sort of woos is he?

However he hasn't done too bad at Durham and now we've spent the money on Gough perhaps we can't afford too much on the coach.

Hang on, he could easily take 45 minutes on the A58 (if it's peak traffic) getting to Headingley. It's going to kill him, unless he's taking on Bardsey to see whether he can get them gelling...

Ronny Roundarm 2nd March 2007 11:12

I have to say I'm happy with this move. Always rated Moxon as a coach.

Interesting that he had a falling out over money originally. That one must have been smothed over.

kyle 2nd March 2007 12:25

Just coming up on the BBC Sport news ticker that McGrath has decided to stay for the 2007 season.

Blimey - are things going right?

The top order is now looking moderately solid.

White, (I imagine we'll go for Wood over Sayers, but that's no guarantee), Elliott (replaced by Younus), Rudolph, McGrath, (probably) Rashid, (I think they'll go for Guy over Brophy initially), Bresnan, Gillespie, Gough, Kruis.

I'd prefer it if we could play this team, however:

Sayers, White, Younus, Rudolph, McGrath, Lyth, Wood (wk), Bresnan, Gillespie, Lawson and then either Gough if he's fit, and most likely Kruis.

And the reason I'd not go for Rashid - it's likely his bowling will be found out this year (viz. Jon R Theory of Young Legspinners: Season 2 - The difficult patch) and Lawson had this problem early last year, but he's worked and worked on hitting the right spots. Besides, I want to see at least one young batsman, bowler and spinner in the side!

Wow. Doesn't look like he had anything 'lined up', eh Kim? :D

Edit: Ooh, speak of the devil
