Pretty much Wasn't the best days cricket I've ever been to....Rashid's batting was about the only thing preventing me looking for the nearest rope and the nearest tree.

Gagging for a bit of kinky autoerotica, eh? At least you got your fix from Adil.

Caught at long leg hooking apparently.

Five-fer for Clare, if I just heard right. Fleming out for 243.

Yes, Clare's done OK, 5 for 90 in a score of 548 for 9 declared. That sounds a bit like faint praise ... Clare's done very well.

This batting has been a complete disgrace, lets not lie to. Only one batsmen has even remotely performed and he is so sick of holding it together that he is not coming back.

we can blame misiing key players like Welch and Harvey but these were not top order batsmen so that doesn't wash. The first 3 games we made big scores but since then a minor counties team wouldn't be proud of the runs we've made.

The averages don't lie, Birt has been a dreadful excuse of an overseas player who only has a respectable average because he takes a liking to Bristol.

what can we do, who can we bring in that will at least give some backbone and fight??? Its not as if we've been done by excellent bowling, some of our collapses have been mainly through horrendous shots.

Ballance has become the fifth player to leave Derbyshire having accepted an Academy contract with Yorkshire.

What about the following?

Birch (done very little apart from scoring century against weak opposition)
Birt (poor season as overseas player for Derbyshire)
Borrington (failed to make single 1XI appearence this year)
Cusden (hardly played for 1XI)
Dighton (hardly set the world alight in his short spell with Derbyshire)
Harvey (been unable to play for 1XI because of registration problems)
Hodgkinson (bowled 10 overs in one CC match which went for 75)
Hughes (who hasn't even appeared for 1XI despite 14 1XI debutants)
Hunter (been injured most of this season)
Klokker (scored century in one match not seen in 1XI since)
Taylor (likely to be granted his wish to leave)
Weston (very poor season for Derbyshire with the bat)
Whitely (who hasn't even appeared for 1XI despite 14 1XI debutants)

Of the other 28 players there are 13 players which Derbyshire could afford to release without lose much in the way in terms of quality. 4 of the remaining 15 players who are not already on the staff (Clare, Patel, Poynton and Saffell) should be offered contracts for next season.

Next season's starting XI

Stubbings
?
?
?
?
?
Pipe (+)
Wagg
?
Lungley
Dean

Derbyshire need 4 new batsmen, a batting all-rounder, spinner and a captain to take the squad up to 21.

SMoD - Getting Lungley and Wagg to sign was a good thing to happen. These two along with Stubbings, Pipe and Dean at least give you a basis on which to build upon.

In 1996 we lost six capped players and whilst we struggled initially we managed to turn things round and get where we are today. What is needed is a strong leadership which comes from the coach and captain.

thanks for the support

the captain has not been very good this year, he has been a wonderful batsmen but not been as good as Welchy or Sutton. Welch was a huge huge loss and is probably just as big as the whole Harvey issue.

Derbyshire must sign Welch on as the first team coach because i think we'll fail with Morris on his own, Morris sounds like a very good manager but maybe not the greatest coach so hopefully we can bring Welchy back to provide some of that grit and determination that we had over the last few years.

I'd try and keep Greg Smith, he is a good cricketer who can perform a lot of roles and this year has come on a fair bit. I like the energy thst Smith has and he has really turned me round after i doubted him a lot earlier on. Dighton has shown promise and i'd offer him a deal, with more experience of English conditions he'll hopefully get stronger. so we have:

Stubbo (though he needs to regain his form)
Dighton
?
?
?
Smith
Pipe
?
Wagg
Lungely
Dean (although his injury record worries me)

I'd get an overseas player as a batsmen and i'd try and tempt somebody who has a point to prove with the captaincy, I'm told Morris was selected because of his good contacts so lets hope he gets on the blower quickly!!!

Middx are my 2nd favourite team but I had to support Derbys again today as Clare was playing. He nearly got a run out from some great fielding. Is he being kept on next season. He hasn't even got a number on his shirt. 3 wickets - Joyce, Morgan and Compton. 2 bowled and a c&b.

Giles watched him bowl in the nets and was impressed with his bowling action and what he can do with the ball and Mike Hendricks speaks highly of him.
It was nice Atherton mentioned him to Katich as an emerging talent. I have decided to have him as my 3rd favourite bowler after Anderson and Broad.

Don't know why Lungley couldn't bowl at the start like he did at the end. Why isn't Action Man staying at Derbys. Where is he going?

Weston - complete rubbish
Lungely - looks rather jaded at the moment
