Re: 2 homes wins for top spot starting with Hamps

Yeah, one or two posters back!

This performance was as predictable as night follows day.

We won 4 on the trot, and have now lost 3 on the trot - probably be 4 after playing Surrey on Tuesday.

The batting was never going to be strong enough right from the start of the campaign, so it has proved, and so it will continue to do. There is no consistency, we rarely get off to a good start and have to rely on a few spasmodic good scores from a couple of our batters when we are in luck. But look at the rest of the time.

I didn't see anything of today's match, but I am perturbed although not surprised by comments above this one to the effect that we not only played several rash and stupid shots, but the fact that we appeared to look disinterested and gave up.

As far as team selection and effort are concerned, the club's management have a lot to answer for.

These blokes are well - paid and professional sportsmen, whose role is to entertain the thousands who attend, and pay their membership subs.

They are failing us. It is all so predictable. And I have not mentioned the bowling!
