One player who won't be in the Lancashire line up:

My worry is that the young guy they call Baby Boycott may bat for three days and kill the chances of a win:

I guess Liam Dawson is their main man but his Championship stats are horrendous.
Hangs are in a bit of a bind. They need a result but daren't produce a green top.

A bit depressing that I should feel I need to worry about what they do.

What worries me is how motivated Durham will be now that their safety is assured. Will they, for example, leave out the two Slurry bound players and blood a couple of youngsters? We can't afford to hope for any favours from Durham, we need to beat Lancs, simple as that.

Wish I could, and certainly will in my retirement, but currently my work commitments mean I am unable to get to any game played in midweek as my end of working hours comes after the close of play.

If you told your boss you were sick and had to lie down in a cold room, he wouldn't know you were talking about the Edgbaston pavilion.

He'd probably tell me that enduring a stint of watching the Bears this season would not be conducive to improvements in health! He would know this as that boss is me  Tongue

I think the appropriate saying is: No-one on their deathbed ever says "I wish I'd spent more time in the office".
Having said that and having been my own boss for quite a few years, I know all about how much harder you can be on yourself than anyone else would be.
Whatever you do next week, you will still be a Bear at heart.

I see that the ECB have "asked" Warwickshire to rest Chris Woakes for this game.

As our oldest member was wont to say, "Ay, there's the rub"
Yorkshire are at odds with the ECB over Jonny Bairstow:

Be nice if some don't jump off the bandwagon yet and come to support the guys in the most important game of the season

I will be there however long it lasts. The ECB stance over Bairstow is just stupid as he has barely played in weeks and is not even centrally contracted which I really cannot understand. So Yorkshire should tell the ECB where to go or is Strauss afraid that his old side will be on the end of a 'Johnny Special' which can turn a game on it's head. Makes a nonsense of the game and where do the ECB think all of it's England players come from, the CC and this stance devalues it.
