The Times review of the season today stated that Middlesex should show contrition for their sorry performance. Sounds as if contrition was pretty thinly spread.
As for cricketers unable to settle in London this is as pathetic as it gets. Millions of people have to commute and don't have the luxury of living in St John's Wood. Somebody tell Jo Denly that Kent isn't exactly the Hebrides. This reminds me of Emburey's excuses for not signing players that nobody could afford to live in London.

The point made was that London can be a cold unfriendly place if you live a long way from the other players and do not meet socially. Those who play for say Somerset tend to live within 20 mins of the ground.
It may only be a small point but it does help team bonding and spirit.

Similarly about not coming back to the dressing room and not saying no one can play that. Its ok to say the umpire is blind but not other kinds of negativity especially when you have young players in the side.
Again a small point but one Law wants changed.
