Fixtures are out. A bit uninspiring although we do get a trip to Colwyn Bay. The teams we don't play twice are Middlesex (yay!), Derby, Leicester and Gloucestershire. Sorry Terry, no home fixture for you.

A 50 over game at Blackpool could be fun. Bring back Jim Stewart!

How stupid is that fixture away Kent on the 20th June, and then starting on the 25th June away Durham. If we loss at Durham i don't think any of us on here could complain if we did, only at the mupet who came up with this fixture.

The guy doing the fixtures probably thought "Canterbury and Chester-le-Street - Ah they both begin with C".
Another season where the CC starts just after the end of winter and finishes just before the start of winter (well I know, it's the start of Autumn)

I suppose it could be said that it is a true test... played in all conditions.

Thanks Terry... Interesting as alway.

T20 finals day gets later and later... Mid September is too late IMHO for the games premier one day final.

Perhaps it is time to start putting roofs on stadiums.....

It must be awful for you having to endure the pyjama pantomime game in a month when they're playing proper cricket

They should have built the Etihad Stadium in Birmingham, not Melbourne:

You might have thought that it was hard to make the Donkey Slog even more of a farce but, seriously, finals day in mid-September when the last game will be played with a heavy dew settling? What are they thinking?

Simple GB - they are following the ECB Maxim - If it AIN'T broke - fix it.

George says in today's Ashes report:
"But when this series is reviewed by the ECB in a few months, it's worth recalling a couple of things. For a start, they - 'Teflon' Strauss et al - were the ones who pushed the County Championship ever further into the margins of the season - thereby negating the need for spinners and fast bowlers - to create windows for white-ball cricket. And they are the ones who appoint the coaches and set the policies at Bluffborough where, for all the millions invested, the number of quality spinners and fast bowlers produced is negligible."
Bluffborough - not heard that one before!

Evening folks, I usually start to get the new season buzz around February, if the Ashes haven't beaten it out of me!

Anyway I am on a training course the week before we play Middlesex at Lord's and I fancy extending the trip with some cricket; I haven't been to Lords for a county match since we beat Essex in the last B&H final back in 2002. What is Lords like for a Championship match? Specifically are any stands closed and what level of food is available? (Guessing little like most Championship matches but thought I would ask)

Thanks in advance; I tried to find this out on the MCC site but couldn't find what I was looking for.
