Mature response.......

I think you will find the person who mentioned the pitch originally is a Somerset fan.

I don't follow. Why would Durham's introduction upset you on the basis that they joined the ranks after you got into cricket?

Why are we such a joke when on tele!? Pretty much down to skipper now because Ealham has been in wretched form with the bat since the first CC game...

Its doesnt upset me, I just find it hard to see them as a county team on the same level as the other 17 thats all. Dont take it personally, I have the same issue with Dagenham & Redbridge.

I'm used to us being the whipping boys. It has been the case virtually since we joined. Now however, we are starting to play like a proper side and the two trophies last season was the icing on the cake.

In fairness, if we were to revert back to 17 at any time, I'd prefer to keep Durham than Yarkshire

Well we lost a tight game but yet again an absolute ****ing joke of how to win a game when on top on Sky. Sorry but quite frankly we should be beating this Lancs side.

I am shocked anyone supports Durham after they got away with that pitch!!

On a different point I am a massive Read fan but his keeping seems to be a little weaker than it used to be.
Quite correct, Taunton has hardly been a road this year.
