JW, an excellent and detailed summary.

Just a few random points from me:

all the other end of season forums (fora?) I have been to were much better attended;

the round of applause for Scott was very half-hearted;

apart from the four we know about (Compton - no other mention - Franklin, Patel and Fuller), everyone else is expected to be around next year;

no particular targets for recruiting at the moment;

the negotiations for the new deal (2020 >winking smiley will be very tricky;

the ECB are behind our proposals for a new ground, for which funding will be available that might not in a few years time;

we are definitely going to go ahead with a new ground (unlike the last time, with the arrangements at Radlett);

RG now convinced the 100 will go ahead and if it fails it will be a disaster for English cricket;

RG also cannot see Lord's hosting only 4 matches every August, with the advent of drop-in or hybrid pitches and electronic advertising boards.

Happy to answer any other questions from those unable to attend, so post away.
