incidentally, I can't find the post where, according to Tom, a previous poster described our players as "disinterested" - or even uninterested, which is what he presumably meant (they are not synonyms).


in my experience of the Gazette they did well to spell his name right, they don't after all know which of 'practice' and 'practise' is the verb


On the whole, I'm quite glad it's not up to me. But my team, if I absolutely had to be the one making the final decision: Azhar, Trego, Bartlett, Hildreth, *Abell, +Davies, Gregory, Overton, Bess, Overton, Leach, Brooks.

A wonderful post, Mike, and I share you're (Sm124) disdain concerning dis/uninterested and practice/practise - would you believe that I received recently from an English client a letter in which my correspondent stated quite vehemently that 'he would of'....

On a slightly different note, I do admire your proposed team selection for today's match against Surrey, and I am sure that selecting twelve players would only improve our batting....

Mike: you can be sure that, in matters of good English practice, you will have an ally in me. I don't care that dictionaries may allow the "wrong" definition of "disinterested". I cannot see why people should choose "disinterested" when "uninterested" already exists.

One particular usage that always annoys me is the use of "refute" when we already have"deny". "Refute" actually means "disprove".

“Back-to-back” and “gifted” drive me mad. Mad, I tell you.

Somerset Seconds, unbeaten so far this season, added to the feel good factor away to Sussex in a three-day match today.

Unbeaten centuries for both Ben Green and Tim Rouse in a 311-2 dec total; then 1-9 for Jack Brook and 2-3 for Jack Leach, as Sussex finished the day at 13-3.

CJM, Im really chuffed to bit's with the 2's score today, which, looking at the team is surely good practise for next tue's.

I understood bringing in Jamie O - he was our highest wicket taker in white ball cricket last season. But he needs a score to defend. He's unlikely to be the bowler to give you 10-2-38-0, more the 9.2-0-62-4.

Mystic Bagpuss!

Thanks Phil. I can believe it all too easily I'm afraid.

Wondered who'd spot that. Well done Pike.

Nice one Tractor!

Doesn`t it, sadly, tell you rather a lot about the Grockles website (invaluable though it is) that comments on Somerset`s defeat by Hampshire last Sunday - thread title `Outplayed` - run to five pages, while reaction to Tuesday`s win over Surrey - thread title `Surrey 50 All or Nothing` - can only stretch to two pages?

During your working life, CJM, how often did your bosses convene a special meeting to get a better understanding of why something had gone *right*?

But I bet they had a few when things went wrong, no?

It's simple human nature to have more to say when things go wrong than go right.

It pretty much boils down to the difference between:

a) Well done, one and all

vs

b) What can we do to get it right next time?
