    Good for him to get out of Liverpool. He's too good of a player to keep going out on loan season after season. Shame he'll be playing against us though.

    I watched a bit more of this last night, though I couldn't make it through the whole match.
    Things I hated:
    The roving 'reporters' engaging with 'fans'.
    The live music between innings.
    The onscreen graphics.
    Michael Vaughan (though, to be fair, I don't like him in other forms of cricket either)
    The way the commentators felt the need to explain basic bits of cricket (proof that they are not speaking to actual cricket lovers).
    The constant need of the commentators to tell us how great it all is, even as everything fizzled out in that way cricket does so beautifully.
    The team names.
    The team logos.
    The constant feeling that this only exists because the ECB had their noses put out of joint by everyone else doing T20 competitions better.
    The feeling that if this catches on, it will throttle test cricket in its sleep.
     
    Things I liked:
    The feeling that there's no way this is going to catch on.

    It's got a weird "we had to do it because commercial contracts but no one really wants to" vibe to the whole thing.
    I'll probably watch it loads when it's on before forgetting it immediatly after.

    The graphics are terrible.
    The 'cricket' is no different to T20, so hard to see the point. 
    Nasser climbing up it's arse is quite nauseating, Ebony is ok though.

    Certainly a game of "oh, if we have to recount things, I think I might count this pot of money which I didn't last time"
    If everything was peachy anyway why did we change the accounting policy in the first place .........

    Tour Manager (as above)
    @MuespachRam
    .................as he knows how to get to America from America and if you don't know already, he saw Derby County play Bristol City in a Pre Season in America and I know you do know already, because he's only mentioned it 19,567 times, but that just highlights his strengths in advertising.
    He also knows where the beach is, as the family sunbathed on the Ripley Rams St George Flag whilst @MuespachRamthrew a load of Bristol City fans into the sea, as he mistook them in their Red shirts and with their weird accents as Liverpool fans!
    He unfortunately missed the tour to America in 1999, as he accidently locked himself into the Asda toilets all week in Ripley, whilst trying to work out where his beloved Rams had disappeared too........

    Love my cricket but boycotting this. Unnecessary distraction which is destroying the 50 over domestic competition. Can’t get behind it when I don’t care who wins the games. All the OTT glitz is annoying too. Apart from that it’s great 😊

    It’s a strange one - I fail to see how an over of 6 balls is more complex than an “over” ( for want of a better term) of either 5 or 10 balls. And that is fundamentally the difference. As well as the weird graphics

    Against every preconception I had, I'm actually quite enjoying it. Don't think there's room for this and T20 though.
    If this is a success it's down to it being on terrestrial TV.

    RadioactiveWaste reacted to Van der MoodHoover in Independent Regulator for Football   
    I read the letter, which seemed a reasonable start, albeit with some can-kicking of the knottier issues. 
    Then I read the terms of reference. 
    Then I re - read the letter and was less enthusiastic. 
    It seems that any independent regulatory body is envisaged to work alongside, rather than instead of, the existing structures. 
    Some contentious issues eg parachute payments are being bathed in warm platitudinous comments that lead me to believe there is no appetite to tackle entrenched vested interests. 
    And there were some areas in the terms not mentioned at all, such as the widely derided fit and proper test. 
    Expect more heat than light.

    I believe I could be a significant source of activity, have a long half life as a manager and follow the "Alexander Litvineko" approach to team discipline.
    The fans would be glowing.
    However, ultimately, the job really should go to @Curtains

    Curtis Davies (if we re-sign him) always strikes me as the perfect captain. But Curtis will always be a leader whether or not he wears the armband. If making Tom captain helps him to reach his undoubted potential on a more consistent basis I'm all for giving it a go.

    Agree with that now, but it would have to start with the kids and carry on through the age groups. Not many (if any) of the current womens internationals would be able to switch as of now.

    It's quite the reverse, T20 is very successful. The ECB didn't take ownership of it and now wish they had done, so invented the hundred so they could own it because it's not T20. Oh, and kill off small counties, the ECB wet dream of a generation. They wanted to scrap having promotion and relegation in the county championship but kept finding counties they like were in div 2.
