|U18/U23 at Chelmsford on Monday |

Hearing from my Cousin that we might be playing a friendly at Chelmsford on Monday ( her son is currently playing for them! ).
|A welcome return of crowds to the Cricket |
at 08:42 2 Jun 2021
Test match starts today at Lords. A very inexperience England side will play NZ. 4th choice wicket keeper James Bracey will play. Top 7 is quite easy to pick
The welcome return of the Sun has thrown a bit of a spanner in do we now pick leach. Both Broad and Anderson will play which means picking one from Robinson, Overton, Stone and Wood. I’d go for Stone as think he has the ability to scare batsmen with his pace but think England will be conservative and pick Robinson as he can bat at 8.

|England Thrashed |
at 09:21 16 Feb 2021
Well that ended pretty much as expected except for some Moeen fun at the end. India were just far too good for us on a turning pitch, they knew where to bowl and to keep runs down and there batters played better than ours.
Last time a day/nighter was played in India the Indian spinners didn’t take a wicket in the test! Be interesting to see what type of pitch they do produce.
England are definitely hedging there bets and named a squad of 17! We will see changes how many though will be like a game of Lambingo. One definite change no Moeen he wanted to go home and has been allowed to do so. Would be amazed if Anderson doesn’t come in. If it’s not a raging Bunson then I’d replace both Broad and Moeen with Anderson and Archer. Don’t think the Indian batsman would enjoy a double barrage from Stone and Archer!

Pick your poison and decide on:
1) Time of first shot on goal - 65 mins
2) what position will Judge play - number 10
3 ) Time of first Town sub - 70 mins
4) Most random selection- Nolan in for Dozzell
5) Will Town have a player sent off - yes
|Good win in the cricket |

Good work from England knocking off the remaining runs this morning. 5 consecutive wins away from home now which is some going especially as this team was really under prepared.
Still some issues though, I don’t think Sibley has the technique to open in India he is offering an edge to left arm and leg spinners. What do you do if Lawrence scored 100’s and 50 between now and opening test in India can you drop him?
Think England might play 3 spinners in next test with Ali coming in for Curran, don’t think they will change the top 6. Anderson and Stone will open the bowling.

According to Telegraph it might be decided by a toss of the coin then the 3rd round decided the same way.

Can I ask you all for a small favour. Morrison’s are giving our hard working teachers a well earned 10% discount however they’ve decided that 6th form teachers don’t qualify. My wife is a 6th form teacher and works equally hard as primary and secondary if you can tweet Morrison’s and tell them what a bad call this is my wife and her brilliant colleagues would be very grateful.
|IFollow revenue streams|
at 21:42 21 Sep 2020
Interesting from Colchester United explaining how revenue from IFollow works
Home club keeps all monies raised by home fandom they also keep the money from the first 500 away fans to buy the game, after that the away club keep the rest. For Colchester’s last game they sold 452 to col u fans and 2252 to Bolton fans! Colchester don’t expect to make any money all season from away games. Be interesting to find out how many we are selling.
|Essex into the Final of Bob Willis cup|
at 13:22 8 Sep 2020
The maths bods have crunched the numbers and found that Derbyshire needed to get 200 in the first innings and win to deny Essex a place in the final against Somerset.
Derbyshire were bowled out for 195, Lancy-Lancy-Lancy- Lancashire!
|Four into two |
at 08:57 19 Aug 2020
We have a bit of a quandary coming up, we have 4 number 10’s and realistically only 2 spots available one starting and one on the bench, so who starts and who’s in the bench out of
It sounds like Dobra will be used more as a wide player so think we can discount him for the moment.
That leaves Bishop, Judge and El-Miz fighting it out for 2 spots. For me I’d pick Bishop and El-Miz, El-Miz as he offers a goal threat and set piece too but I suspect he will currently be the one to miss out.
Was heartening to have all 4 play well though!
|2nd Test today|
at 09:51 13 Aug 2020
Lovely day here on the Surrey/ Hampshire border hopefully the sun is shinning down the M3 in Southampton.
England will make 1 change for sure with Crawley coming in for Stokes and possibly Curran for Bess other than that I don't think they will change anything else.
at 10:45 5 Aug 2020
Pakistan win toss and bat, England unchanged as Stokes not fit to bowl, Pakistan are playing 2 leg spinners, they must think it's going to break up on days 4 and 5 and hope England have a wobble against Spin.

Not only should the ISS be visible tonight we should also get the SpaceX dragon capsule visible as well.
ISS should be visible coming from the West at around 21.20
Dragon capsule if the launch is on time should be visible at around 21.50 also coming from the West

I'm sure most of you are aware that the trains down south are rubbish at the moment but due to the weather they have been even worse last couple of days. Line was blocked near Liss yesterday and they were cancelling trains after they were due to depart this morning. Leave plenty of time to get to Fratton tomorrow.
|3rd ever penalty shoot out win?|
at 08:30 5 Dec 2019
Am I right in thinking that was only our 3rd ever win on penalties?
Luton - ZDS cup
Shrewsbury - League cup?
Peterborough - Leasing.com
|2nd Test Tonight|
at 10:48 28 Nov 2019
Looks like Butler will miss it with a bad back, Ollie Pope will play as wicketkeeper. what team would you pick? I'd go for
don't think either Curran or Woakes do anything with the ball away from England and Leach isn't good enough spinner to take wickets, so would bring in Mahmood who is quicker than Stokes, Broad, Woakes and Curran and replace Leach with Parkinson who as a leggie will get some turn.
I'd have picked Bairstow as a keeper too but think he's already left for a South Africa training camp.
