Simon you mustn't personalise this... Concerns over the structure and make up of the championship are legitimate. I believe there has to be change... You don't ... and fair enough.

I'm in Barcelona at the grand Prix... But I'm pleased to see that Leics actually won.... It is rare.  But I'm afraid over 70 percent of wooden spoons this century have gone to Leics, Derby's or Northants .. and that speaks volumes... and even with a Durham side on minus 40 points last year it still happened.... and even though Durham are in disarray.. it may even happen this year. Not sure who is bottom of Division two ... But it's probably one of the usual suspects? Division two is very poor compared to division one.... A relegated Bears side starting to romp away with it already. The red ball game needs a shake up... the structure is failing the game and the England set up. Players used to loosing don't help when it comes to test cricket.

Anyway... Really pleased to see that the Bears won... We really need to be in division one. Excellent to see Rhodes make that score.
If the gap s is so large how did promoted Essex win the championship last season?!

You will always get a team come through occasionally...but I'm afraid some counties are continuously poor at red ball cricket... Better suited to the white ball game in its two formats. Clubs like Derby's, Leics and Northants would be more competitive and commercially viable at 50 over and T20.

Generally the standard of division two and some clubs in particular has been poor for some time.
