|Looks a bit blustery at Chelmsford...|

Can confirm, very windy in Chelmo. Fence panal down but good start at FNWS from the champions elect. Glad I'm not fielding today, not cricket weather!

Well at least we've got a decent bowling attack as it all goes to sh*t....

Me and the old man heading up on the train in an hour or so for our first game back in at least four years, can't wait. Unfortunately a few of the places we we're going to head to for a beer look to be either shut or don't open till the evening. Brairbank, Arcade Tav & St Jude's to name but three. Any recommendations for a good pint of beer that'll be open this afternoon??
|Quite a remarkable crowd for Tuesday...|

Really looking forward to it, first time back in 4 years for me & and the old man....assuming we're still upwardly mobile after an afternoon pub crawl round town. Assume St Judes Tavern is still going?

Absolutely, the greatest athlete of all time, and hopefully just a phenom. Great bloke as well. (Hopefully)

Big Jet TV on YouTube is well worth a watch right now. Incredible watching the planes try to get down. About 50/50 strikerate....

Dave was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them."
Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Dave, how about Tom Cruise?"
"No dramas boss, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it." So Dave and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door, and Tom Cruise shouts,
"Dave! What's happening? Great to see you! Come on in for a beer!"
Although impressed, Dave's boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise's house, he tells Dave that he thinks him knowing Cruise was just lucky.
"No, no, just name anyone else," Dave says.
"President Biden," his boss quickly retorts.
"Yup," Dave says, "Old buddies, let's fly out to Washington," and off they go.
At the White House, Biden spots Dave on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, "Dave, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a beer first and catch up."
Well, the boss is very shaken by now but still not totally convinced. After they leave the White House grounds he expresses his doubts to Dave, who again implores him to name anyone else.
"Pope Francis," his boss replies.
"Sure!" says Dave. "I've known the Pope for years." So off they fly to Rome.
Dave and his boss are assembled with the masses at the Vatican's St. Peter's Square when Dave says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." He disappears into the crowd headed towards the Vatican.
Sure enough, half an hour later Dave emerges with the Pope on the balcony, but by the time Dave returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.
Making his way to his boss' side, Dave asks him, "What happened?"
His boss looks up and says, "It was the final straw... you and the Pope came out on to the balcony and the man next to me said, 'Who the f**K is that on the balcony with Dave?'

Few more senior figures for the chop too. Hopefully Butler, Malan, Hameed & Burns have been binned

Looks like Jimmy and Broad have been dropped for the tour to WI. Nothing like binning your two best (and fittest regardless of age) bowlers because the batters couldn't amass 200.

Every chance that Bayliss will be the next Aussie coach by all accounts. Interesting dynamics going on there if JL gets the Eng job. I'd be in favour of either Langer or Kirsten for the test job with the short form reigns handed to Colly.
