Re: Somerset not raking in the points

I'm reminded that at least one football club (it might even have been Leeds) went into administration very late in the season, possibly after relegation was certain, in the hope that the points deduction associated with administration would be applied that season (when it made no difference) rather than the next one. That was seen through.

If deductions could not be carried over, you would be giving a free hit to a county to do what they wanted in the last match of the season if there was all to gain and nothing to lose. Whatever you think about the pitch in question, there has to be a meaningful sanction against going too far.

It is fair comment to say that some counties look as if they are producing pitches to favour their seam attack but it is much harder to prove and visiting teams have, at least for the time being, the option of putting the home team in, which would be pointless on a bunsen.
