N0 blame to anyone here, I'd have thought - Goodwin simply played one of the great one day innings.

It was a great innings from Goodwin, but even then, with only Sami and Kirtley left, we should have been able to finish things off. There's always criticism to be had in these situations, in my opinion, and I think that one way or another, whether at the death or earlier on, Andre Adams was under-bowled and Mark Ealham over-bowled. It might not have made a difference, probably it wouldn't. It was just that, at the time, I instinctively felt that Adams, with his cutters and changes of pace, would have offered a bit more than an ailing Ealham.

Ealham, nearing 40, can be forgiven a lot of things now, including yesterday. I think that his batting has gone entirely now and his bowling is starting to fall away after some good performances in the early-middle part of the season.

David Lloyd wondered whether you might have tried Mark Wagh's spin. Im not sure hes ever bowled for you thpough and Im not sure hes fit enough but - though probably the most obvious chucker Ive ever seen - he did have his moments at Warwicks.

Sorry to bring this up but who was it Read dropped? Because other than that, you didint miss any chances either. It just never looked like happening once your spinners went off. Thought Swanns dismissal of Adams was superb bolwing. Really intelligent.

Read dropped Martin-Jenkins, Jefferson then caught him the very next ball.

Ready knew RMJ would be out next ball anyway to dropped him to maximise the dot balls. Duh.

Reoccuring theme for Notts this season, total inability to kill off a game from a winning position.

that is where we really miss Mr Sidebottom. Charlie and Pattinson, just don't have that mean killer instinct.

There was also a cut shot from Goodwin that Bumble thought he knicked that Read dropped and hurt his thumb, but they didn't show replays so I'm not sure whether it counted as a drop. Though Prior was given out having not hit it so there's a chance that if Read had held it then they would have won the match

Having not hit it? What?

He (mistakenly) thought he didnt hit it which is different.

You're ruining my trolling Kim. Prior is a walker so I think he didn't hit it. From front on it looked like he didn't. But it was a fair enough decision.

AJ Harris released.

Mick is quoted as saying "wanting to give younger bowlers a chance"!!! Glory Be.

steady county bowler cheers for all the effort AJ!. especially 2005.

Major cock up my Newell and Read in my eyes. Where was Paul Franks?

I did find it very strange that Ealham had so many overs but my god what an innings. Shocking over by Shreck too.

I said last week that I thought Read's keeping powers were declining with the captaincy and after watching him again I think that it could be the case. too many fumbles. I may retire from that debate (but then maybe I wont)

That should light the touchpaper nicely. Good one Virgs! The chances of Fireworks being more economical than Ealham or Adams, expensive as they were... slim to none.

yes mfb that game against kent was bril and harris was fantastic that day.

wants to give young bowlers a chance what like this year. I dont expect newell to throw all the young ones in at the same time but surely he could play keep a place open every game for either footit or fletcher or alternate them. Was going to include saxelby but hes gone now

Im hoping to hear Franks has been dredged up from the bottom of the Trent!! Certainly dont ever want to see him on a cricket field again.

Ealham is usually an economical and very reliable bowler. There was possibly a case for bringing Adams back on, but I cant blame Read for continuing with him. I was at Trent Bridge earlier in the season when he was taking a bit of a spanking against Yorkshire. Surely Read will bring him off after this over, I thought. He didnt and he went and took 3-0 off his next 14 balls and swung the match totally in our favour.

Ealham has more often than not always managed to pull summat out when we have really needed it. He just didnt manage it on Sunday. He will still remain one of our finest ever signings mind

I thought so too. His keeping hasn't been the same since the 3 am armed robbery and since the captaincy it has been average. I don't think he can be called the best keeper in the country anymore. I don't think there is anyone that can claim that title. The top five are all about the same. Good days and bad days.

Feel sorry for AJ, don't think he's a division one bowler any more but still better than fireworks. Good luck to him finding a new county.

Anyway, Read's keeping. Average!? He dropped one on Sunday, one in the Sussex game (where he took an absolute stunner in the same session) and I think one earlier in the season. This is considered a very bad year for his own standards* and he also has the pressure of the captaincy.

*FFS Ready three!? That's as many as Donkey Prior dropped in his last Test match!! What are you DOING!?

dropped one in the durham pro 40 too.

I am not saying he is not still great he is just not quite as good. Foster has looked spectacular this year.
