BrianT

Time the rules relating to hours of play were revisited. 6.45 yesterday, could have played for another hour. They could have microwaved the umpires' tea.

via SMS

Love you Marchy!

Thats it for the day

The rain has become heavier and the umpires have said thats it. we'll come back and try again tomorrow. Hampshire still 77-3.

4:22pm

bryn

plooting it,again! gonna ask work for todays hols back as i havnt actually done anything :(

via SMS

Brandonia: According to bbc no play today due to rain so that's that folks.

via SMS

Brandonia: Will LMC be on next week for when the other sides play? So we can all keep each other in the know!

little_smudge

Well, methinks it will be a draw then. I'll be hoping for a positive result when I go down to Trent Bridge

daleslass

Still mizzeling outside

via SMS

Brandonia: Still hanging around down there?

Tynevalleylad

Bell's bowled.

Tynevalleylad

100 for Cook.

Tynevalleylad

Critisized Sky too much v Hamps in T20, this must be its punishment.

marchy22

bell dropped at1st slip ha ha

BrianT

Don't know how they're bottom of the league with their team. Unless Cork has been playing every week.

marchy22

why wouldnt we, diva, smith, muchall, rocky, benks, blackwell, mustard, is that not capable of 400 plus thorp, rushy and claydon are capable

BrianT

Let them get 300 for 9 declared, forfeit our first and their second innings. Playing for 19 points then. Won't happen though.

christoff

There is more points available for the win, a gamble but it could be vital extra points, plus doubt we would get max batting points with our team and the weather

marchy22

we wont do that, we wont forfeit bonus points by declaring the first innings and we wouldnt give them a 77 run start too

christoff

It would mean we were playing for 17 points as apposed to 11, I think I would be having a word with Adams see if he fancies it!!

christoff

Wonder what the chances if today is a washout of both teams declaring to make it a 1 inns contest, with 77 run first inns lead for Hamps

marchy22

203-1

Tynevalleylad

England 199 for if anyone interested.

marchy22

yeah a bit but not much longer, luke eveans has took the 1st wicket v middlesex and will giman 6-92 for gloucs, good to see ex durham lads being sucessful

christoff

still 4 hours before close I would think they would wait a bit yet marchy

marchy22

no but itsw gonna be soaked with rain falling for the last 8-10 hours and then u have the bad light to consider, there is gonna be no play today

Tynevalleylad

My address was County Durham till the government of the day changed it to Tyne & Wear!

bryn

im watching carry on cabby on ch4,beats being at work (only just!)

BrianT

are you there Marchy? How wet is the outfield?

marchy22

the umpires must be close to abanding the play for today

BrianT

But it nearly always does.

myboyharry

Chucking it down. It really would be a shame if the weather rather than cricket decided the CC.

myboyharry

This weather, rather typically, isnt supposed to break until 6pm. Drizzling ATM - no chance of play anytime soon.

via SMS

Brandonia: For the record I am neither Newcastle or Sunderland. Nor did I bring football up. I am DURHAM. Cheers.

christoff

I'd give my left arm!!

via SMS

Brandonia: What I'd give for the SUN icon right now.......

marchy22

well said

corkball

Why does you being a football fan have anything to do with cricket? to be honest I think you should all get over yourselves. Football is football and not cricket

marchy22

im a black and white, does that mean i have no rights to follow durham?

stephsafc

just watched the north east weather forecast and its basically saying theres rain till saturday night.... not looking good for the cricket.

via SMS

FENNERS totally agree with you branders no place for black and whites in county durham

via SMS

Brandonia: Has it stopped raining yet?

via SMS

Brandonia: Should you not be following Northumberland bigwolls?? ;-)

bigwolls

Aye lad - Geordies from Tyneside on the north side (the good side)...where it is still chucking it down and so have called off any chance of me being there today...waste of time. Hopes for 2morrow.

via SMS

Brandonia: Well I'm from Durham and am certainly not a geordie. To me geordies are from NE postcodes..... I've always thought it being similar to ***neys - you're only a proper ***ney if you can hear the Bow Bells.

BrianT

Here in Sunderland it is raining not. As Tony Han*** would say.

daleslass

Right going to have lunch and a break from editing photos. See you all when I get back

daleslass

Corkball - at least you're listening to what I say even tho it doesn't normally make sense

corkball

Thats alright I got out years ago

BrianT

Used to have to work in Seaham Harbour from time to time. Played footy at Dawdon and I was just a towny. Smart place now mind Seaham. That's not a dig either.

corkball

Well technically its a dialect and not an accent

corkball

yeah I just nod and smile

BrianT

Could be from Sooth of the Tyne as well. Years ago I was quite happy to be called a Geordie when I had to work in Glasgow or Worcester or Wellingborough. Now I don't like it. Was in Southampton once and they thought I was from Leeds becasue of my accent.

corkball

I'm not a Geordie and would never call myself a Geordie, but then Seaham isn't on tyneside

daleslass

corkball - Really ;)

daleslass

I consider myself a geordie and I was born and bred in Chester le Street.

via SMS

Brandonia: Northern I think daleo, if we Durham'ers use it. Geordies are from Northumberland.

corkball

Hey I sit with you and and half the time I have no idea what you're talking about

daleslass

Thats the word - mizzle. A combination of Drizzle and Mist. Called it Mizzle when I was down south and they had no idea what I was talking about. Must my a geordie word

Weather Update

Still very wet at Emirates Durham, Ive been informed nthe technical term is "mizzle".

12:54pm

daleslass

Just had the mutt out. It is that fine rain that wets you.

Tynevalleylad

According to The Weather Channel no sign of sun over C le S till Sunday.

via SMS

Brandonia: Disgusting ground and disgusting club. 6-fingered bairns running about all over in that cow field.

Jakeye

Is any1 at the ground Tht could tell me the situation

Jakeye

Is any1 at the ground Tht could tell me the situation

Jakeye

Is any1 at the ground Tht could tell me the situation

daleslass

Yeah please do. If we get any play over the weekend I'll be just down from the players dressing room

poolynorm

It was at Teasdaleville.Due to be featured during this test.Low Moor Road is my spiritual cricket home.Also loved playing EW at West Terrace.

BrianT

Ignore last post. Will say hello next time.

BrianT

Good job I didn't speak then Might have got a slap.

daleslass

If it was a T20 then yes I spent a couple of games across there

daleslass

Brian T - Don't think so. I tend to be around the members stand.

daleslass

That's the worst kind of rain.

daleslass

That's the worst kind of rain.

bryn

just been down to the ground+theres more stewards there than supporters also its that fine rain that soaks you :(

via SMS

Brandonia: Was it at Evenwood norm? Or even if it was at l.park - could've picked a better ground! Evenwood is like the Deliverance.

BrianT

Daleslass: were you sitting on South Terrace with all your cameras at a recent one dayer?

daleslass

Can't see any rain in my puddle

BrianT

Not raining in Sunderland but light would not be good enough at present. Must get these windows cleaned.

Rain...

The drizzle is becoming heavier and the full covers are on, I think well have to just wait for it to stop before we hear from the umpires.

12:00pm

via SMS

Mbh: doing the same myself BT. As soon as it starts I'll be down. Raining steadily in CLS now.

poolynorm

Totally agree Corky about not being playable although warming up. My point is playing footy on a wet outfield.Might try a chicken sandwich for lunch Brando.Hoping that the Evenwood v Parklife feature is on during the bait stand at Edgbaston.

BrianT

Not yet but was yesterday. Will decide on going when play starts as I'm sure it will.

daleslass

Brian T - are you at the ground ?

BrianT

Met someone yesterday who had travelled up from the Isle of WIght to watch all four days. The he's off the Chesterfield at the weekend to watch Yorks v Notts. Proper fan when you're bottom of the league.

BrianT

I hope the umpires are decisive today, unlike yesterday. Or maybe not, I can't decide.

bigwolls

Lunch extending to an early tea .....

corkball

Lunch at home methinks

bigwolls

Yup - the ongoing drying up operations are only taking out the rain that is falling now...not what has soaked in to the ground overnight so even if it stops now (ha ha) will be at least one hour or after lunch start.

daleslass

Getting darker outside and the puddle I'm watching has the odd spot in it

corkball

Its not always playable just because the players are warming up! The Umpires have to take into account thesafety of the players all over the out field

bigwolls

Absolutely chucking it down now north of the Tyne following a gentle drizzle for 30 mins. looks like this will be the norm for today....not much good when one has to factor in a journey thro the Tyne Tunnel so miles and weather play a part....boo hoo

via SMS

Brandonia: It must be playable for cricket if they're playing football. Sometimes I think the umpires don't like their job. They'll do owt for a skive. What's for lunch today norm?

via SMS

Brandonia: It works for Davie Charlton like.

poolynorm

Too wet for cricket yet they're playing footy!!!. Get the dominoes out Cooky.

corkball

No covers according to Marty are on

daleslass

How certain are we of play before I decide to come down? Are the covers off yet?

via SMS

Hi Yvette, I'm now in the members lounge. It would be good to see you. Stand Drop

marchy22

totally agree, i bet they are feeling pretty stupid today, ha ha will do FJW

Frankjw

marchy - send them off down Marchies Terrace on a bike with no brakes - they won't bother us after that

corkball

Thats what my English teacher used to tell us. swearing is the inability to express yourself correctly

Tynevalleylad

Sign of a limited vocabulary if you have to use abusive language.

marchy22

some people are just fools, one person always spoils things for everyone else

Tynevalleylad

Pity we aren't like the Med, downpour for an hour then sunshine & warm for rest of day. Ah I see marchy22.

daleslass

If the outfield is so wet why are they warming up and risking injury ?

marchy22

regarding the swearing, some idiot had a foul abusive ago at me, was totally ridiculous

corkball

apparently they're out warming up but the covers are on and the players are slipping over

daleslass

Still don't know wether to go down or not

daleslass

Still don't know wether to go down or not

via SMS

Brandonia: If they can warm up it must be close. Hope we get a start soon.

corkball

covers back on

via SMS

Brandonia: if LMC closes my life will end..... On a brighter note - what was the outcome of this 11am inspection?

Weather update

The main pitch covers are still on with drizzle in the air, the umpires have been out for a look and will continue to asess the situation. Both squads are out warming up.

11:10am

daleslass

Yeah I wondered about that as well

daleslass

Yeah I wondered about that as well

Tynevalleylad

See some idiot might get LMC closed for swearing, what's all that about?

corkball

Apart from being too sensible it will take about 20 minutes to get the outfield ready for play

corkball

thats too sensible Brandonia

via SMS

Brandonia: Can they not inspect at 10.45 with a view to starting on time? It isn't raining in waldridge......

daleslass

No rain at Great Lumley and it does seem brighter

safcluke

raining near the a19

corkball

raining on the coast

marchy22

it is unbelieveable that two teams challenging warks and lancs have been thrashed twice by us

corkball

I haven't had my holidays yet, don't want that much rain

JB1520

We (Lancashire) have had a season to remember as we were written off before a ball bowled. Having said that in both games against DCCC, we were beaten easily !

marchy22

lets hope we have 40 days and 40 nights of rain from now and we will be champs ha ha

corkball

Thats the whole point Marchy. you never know when a game is going to be abandoned without a ball being bowled

auldtimer

We only need to finish the season one point in front.

marchy22

and lancs and warks are at home to worcs and hamps next week respectively and you wud expect them to win both of those, lets hope it rains across the whole of the uk next week

JB1520

As a Lancy fan, we have been robbed more than most due to the weather. I still think that points on the board counts for a lot at this stage

corkball

Marchy, Lancs are always using that as an excuse for not winning the title

marchy22

even if we get maximum bonus poins its gonna put us 17 points ahed of lancs, 23 points ahead of somerset and 26 points ahead of warks and all have a game in a hand apart from warks who will have two, we may be out in front but the title will be out of our hands, the weather has robbed us

Weather Update

The rain has eased, though there is light drizzle in the air that is coming and going, the covers are still on but the umpires will inspect at 11am.

10:31am

corkball

or a game of Kwikcricket

daleslass

Martin Emmerson says the covers are still on and the players in the indoor nets. Sounds like they are expecting more rain

corkball

I'm sure you could

daleslass

I really couldn't say

corkball

worth coming through?

daleslass

Very dull

corkball

whats it like then

daleslass

No

corkball

So its still raining then

daleslass

We had better weather in April. Then after this weekend its four full weeks before our last home game. How stupid is that

bryn

least im not the only one,took today+tomorrow off to watch the lads who's for starting the season in feb? :(

daleslass

I had to fight for Wednesday and Thursday off. Not impressed

keenasmustard

I took the whole week off to watch this match. August eh?

BrianT

The five minute drizzle break at 6 yesterday did the umpires no credit at all.

daleslass

Come over very dark all of a sudden

via SMS

Brandonia: Not raining in Waldridge currently but imagine it will before too long. Very grey and dull.

daleslass

Back at work tomorrow

keenasmustard

Forecast for tomorrow doesn't look too promising either.

daleslass

I've read at least 3 weather forecasts and all say rain all day

Weather Update

Afraid the rain is still coming down at Emirates Durham...The groundstaff are out mopping up water on the covers. Well keep you up do date with conditions.

9:24am

daleslass

Moring from Great Lumley. Rain just stopped

via SMS

Stan Drop. Hi Yvette, I have no access to e-mail or Internet at the moment but would like to ask you a favour. Could you pls send a quick SMS reply to this number and I will call you. Thanks. BTW, no need to post this message on LMC.

christoff

Yorks did us a big favour last night beating Middlesex. Qualifying for the semi finals of CB40 is now in our hands, just win last 3 games, simples ;-)

via SMS

Brandonia: @bigwolls - stick with us on here marra, you'll find out everything you need to know.

bigwolls

Be nice if the club had a weather panel on the home page which showed exactly what was happening on wet days. time of inspection, start of play etc..

via SMS

Brandonia: True mate but they can't shake on a draw until late on Day 4 regardless of what happens so why not play for something? They could still avoid relegation, 3 wins out of 6 could do it for them. That's not impossible by any stretch.

christoff

@brandonia: no chance of sporting declaration, Hants are down and they know it, they will want to shake on the draw asap

bigwolls

just toss up for a winner - Mustard will win that !!

darlostu

Think the rain is forecast for all day today so we may not even get a late start. I suppose there is still Friday and Saturday.....................

bigwolls

Presumably umpires wont inspect until rain stops - could be another 3.30pm start - is it worth it ?

darlostu

Pouring at Darlo as well, suspect no play today?

bigwolls

Pouring north of the Tyne - anyone up yet at Chester-le-St ??

via SMS

Brandonia: Seeing as it's getting to this stage now - does anyone think Hants could be interested in sporting declarations to get a result? After all they need a win as much, if not more than we do - having said that, maybe they've resigned themselves to
