Aye Chris has just rang me from his work in boro and he's saying its really hot.

tomb

Dont think hes a great one day player.

via SMS

Brandonia: Fair enough Ash. Glorious sunshine in Hartlepool now!! Unbelievable!!!

tomb

Chance of rain on Sunday at Colwyn Bay, might get away with it

safcluke

I think Onions could be playing for Englands ODI team v Windies & Australia.

tomb

Doesnt seem to, I think Brathwaite wont play either, Rushworth and Harrison may come in for Onions for a couple of games

safcluke

apart from Thorp cos he doesn't usually play One Day cricket does he?

tomb

I think Geoff may rotate the seamers for the t20 maybe with Claydon playing them all

safcluke

It sounds stupid but Harrison has done so well, i'd be tempted to leave him out of 20/20 and let him play 2nd team championship cricket instead where he wont stand the chance of getting wacked all over. Keep him sorted for Worcester in July.

tomb

Suppose Smith might got the nod as he is a good fielder.

safcluke

that batting is in no particular order.

tomb

Sorry Plunkett instead of Harrison

safcluke

mustard, gibbs, colly, stokes, benks, smith, muchall, plunkett, breese or scotty, rushy, mitch/onions

tomb

Mustard Gibbs Rocky Stokes Benks Colly Blackwell Breeze Claydon Onions Harrison

ashleys army

Live in shields not born in shields brandy

safcluke

lets predict our 20/20 team.

tomb

Most of the wickets will be out caught in the outfield. Like the evening games but three Sunday games? Why not play two games on a Sunday?

safcluke

if you can bowl 90mph+ and straight you can win 20/20 single handed.

safcluke

20/20 silly season now. boring boring boring!

tomb

Worcester game could be crucial

stephsafc

Never know, but I agree Luke, much better effort. At least it gives the players an extra day to nurse any injuries.

safcluke

Dont think we would of won the game personally. But much better effort by the lads.

stephsafc

Gutted that the umpires have called it a day. We weren't doing badly at all. Can't help the weather I suppose... :(

via SMS

Brandonia: Here Ash, you're not one of them NS Ultras are ya?!!

via SMS

Brandonia: Sorry, that was for Ashley.

via SMS

Brandonia: You should follow Northumberland then surely Tomb?!!

tomb

The way its going two or three wins may be enough to stay up

ashleys army

Story of season so far,rain stops play

tomb

Wow, so soon? Unlucky lads, better performance, would have backed us to win from this position

Update

The umpires have called it a day, it's still raining here - match drawn

12:53pm

ashleys army

North shields for me mate

tomb

Just a bit of teasing chris

via SMS

Brandonia: Less of the Tyne-Wear bashing kids. There's no question that neither of the two can hold a candle for the might of Brandon United.

ashleys army

I'll b there Sunday mate keep smiling

chrissafc

obviously half term this week. oh well this looks like a draw. back sunday

ashleys army

Nice one tomb

ashleys army

What? That's q bit low isn't it?

tomb

Have you ever seen a mackem in Milan, have you f**k

Tristan

seems as good a time as any to say ciao all, off to work i go

chrissafc

newcastle gave derby tickets to drug addicts a few year ago

tomb

Sunderland give away thousands of tickets a match

ashleys army

As Murray used to say,1 moreseat n I'll b happy

Tristan

record number of season tickets sold apparently but im not sure i really believe that

Update

Still raining here!

12:40pm

ashleys army

Don't take it to heart o-nil will soon have em piling in

chrissafc

average of 40000 not a big crowd like?

Tristan

hilarious

ashleys army

Nice to see a big crowd at sunderland yesterday for a change!

chrissafc

ha ha. he'll be whinging about expectations within a month

Tristan

apart from team selection, substitutions, motivation & tactcs he did fine

ashleys army

Don't know Chris I thout he did a gud job

via SMS

Brandonia: Hull fans have it bad enough living in Hull!!

chrissafc

i feel sorry for hull fans

Tristan

guess we will never know. wonder which hull city player will become his next future son in law

tomb

Have they taken an early lunch? Rain is easing here

tomb

Deluded fans wont give him a chance. Mrs Doubtfire has returned

Tristan

give him more time marra, they just need time to gel, 10th place finish etc

tomb

Not much of a Geordie at Man U, his accent seemed to come back when he went to Sunderland. I still think he would have done OK if Bent had stayed. Guiness in Dublin is fantastic, sweeter and less bitter than the version we get.

via SMS

Dion Dublin?? Is he going to become Bruce's first signing at Hull? I wonder if the Sunderland fans get him the sack.

Tristan

honestly you will never look at another scotch egg again, its like they say about having guiness in dublin

via SMS

Brandonia: I don't mind messy, I'll give it a go like. Always keen to try all these new and exotic recipes!!

Tristan

Steve Bruce set to take over as Hull City boss. How long before his geordie roots come back to haunt him?

Tristan

Brandon; you must try your hand at scotch eggs, they are very simple to make, just messy, but they are absolutely smashing when eaten fresh, you will never look back sir!

Tristan

aye, but you arent guarnateed an exciting finish in any form of cricket

tomb

I am mad! I certainly enjoyed our batting in that game but it was more of a point on what can happen in 40 over cricket to make it a boring finish. Of course Rushys bowling spell wasnt dull either.

via SMS

Brandonia: Here Norm, HOME to Parklife tomorrow. It's about time you came to Brandon to sample the Teas and have a pint bought by me!

via SMS

be eaten before the second game!

via SMS

Brandonia: Nah, never made the Scotch Egg, just making the Tea. Telt our lass though I won't start it until full time of Poland v Greece and that it must

Tristan

home made scotch eggs then i assume brandy? food of the gods that, dripping yolk, big blob of mustard, sizzlingly hot meat,crunchy breadcrumbs lovely stuff mmmmm im hungry now

via SMS

Brandonia: No fish today Norm. Just had a Scotch Egg like. Having Chicken wrapped in Chorizo with Spicy Wedges for Tea - all made by the hands of me. Top chef

Tristan

tomb; you must be mad, if you cant enjoy a win what can you enjoy? i would be happy to watch us in form, bowling well, fielding well etc, plenty of good performances to cheer on. you cant tell me you left the lancs game happier than against notts?

SixSixEight

*sigh* I was not there to experience that exquisite dullness....in my book it is never dull if we win no matter how one sided :)

via SMS

Brandonia: Dinnar Tristy, I ha it on the wireless, 603MW. They went off at noon though. They'll return if there's any play.

tomb

Was Onions named in the test side?

tomb

The finish against Notts on Sunday was extremely dull, we had it won after 10 overs of their innings

SixSixEight

True

Tristan

agreed 668, but if its a one sided game it tends to be dull whatever the format, the more cricke the better is my motto

SixSixEight

40 tense finishes if the teams are well matched but if not - dull dull dull. And not as good as a Championship tense finish!

Tristan

in fact its all tennis?

Tristan

brandon - is tms suddenly started boradcasting some french stuff over teh top of it or is my computer/brain going crazy??

SixSixEight

I'd like to go to more T20 but the disadvantage with not living near the team is that it is a very expensive afternoon out for not much cricket. And a late finish means having to stay over cos there is no transport back. It is at weekends too and is far too short to make taking a day off worth it.

Tristan

although for teh sake of domestic/international continuity i think our pro40 comp should be 50 overs

Tristan

prefer the 40 over stuff to t20, teh game has longer to develop, as a result the tense finishes are more interesting because of the build up. its like if they made football 20 minutes matches, i can see how it suits some people due to all being over quicker but its not really for me

tomb

I will still be going as I have an OCD thing with cricket, I don't like to miss the games. I would prefer them to drop the music and the 'hi-ho's

SixSixEight

I like T20 - not so fussed with the 40 stuff although I'm going to give it a go at Colwyn bay. But the Championship is the real deal! I've met quite a lot of people who started with T20 and have seen the light so it has its uses :)

poolynorm

What fish shop you stalking today Brando?

tomb

At least theres only 5 home games this time. I cringe when people at those games say they only like T20 and find the 4 day stuff dull. Aargh!!

via SMS

Brandonia: TMS is very interesting and funny this morning. Despite the rain!

SixSixEight

Pooly I'm back in London now. When I'm at any match I have no internet or any other way of getting on LMC. Also work occasionally gets in the way too! So not seeing much LMC action at all this season - will be on for some of the weekday T20s

poolynorm

Sure David Miller and his brother were in a group?

Tristan

i think he was the lead singer in 'support and encourage'

Tristan

are you thinking of karl kennedy pooly? another fantastic aussie

poolynorm

Long time no hear Sixy.Welcome back.

SixSixEight

Real shame about the weather - with Rushy looking as good as he did the other day you'd have to bet he would have been in line for a 10fer for the match if he played again like that.

poolynorm

Is that the guy who was in a band Tristy?

Tristan

hoesntly cant remember how he did for us, did we sign him after warner pulled out was it the other way round? may even have been in different season tbh

Tristan

yorks have signed david miller for the t20, likely to make his debut against us

Tristan

life as county cricketer is one long lunch break at the minute :(

bryn

If I may speak for dales lass it's plooting down in cls :-(

SixSixEight

Tomb I like T20 when it's played by teams that know what they are doing; decent bowlers, good tactics. I'm going to give 3 away games a go. Herschelle Gibbs - I can't get excited about him. Would like it if we got our bowling right for the very short stuff. If they ain't going to play Thorpy in CC I wonder how he would do bowling in T20?

stephsafc

Well its looking dank and awful in Wheatley Hill...

poolynorm

Can someone check on Yvette.I think she's fell asleep again.Has Dales Lass got the latest weather report?

Tristan

sorry for my awful typing btw

Tristan

there was rumours doing teh rounds that rollig stones would be at the sol, we passed on springsteen because of that and now will have to wait another year to do a gig at the sol, still not been to one like, i bet its canny

via SMS

Brandonia: Re - Chris Martin, he's just not rock and roll enough for me. Anyway, is the sun out yet?!

Tristan

good lad bryn will need your runs around the top/middle order

bryn

Trists put my name down for the coach on Sunday it'll make a pleasant change getting soaked abroad!

Tristan

would much rather have 4 day & test matches and a 50 over competition domestically & internationally and nowt else. leave 20 over stuff to the villages

Tristan

though i would obviously want dccc to do well in it for the players sake i would take one championship win in return for losing every t20 mach

Tristan

i dont really rate the t20, its all over too quickly, a large amount of skill is eradicated from the game, just seems pointles to me

Tristan

tomb; someone made the same comment on teh smb, honestly think they probably will :(

tomb

Anyone on here actually like T20? I hope Herschelle Gibbs pops into Austins, he's a bit of a livewire apparently

Tristan

i dont think uefa listen to anyone. their statement about the holland training session mentioned anothing about racist chants, just said loads were there 'enjoying themselves, oohing and ahhing' funny how te dutch captain van bommel didnt see it quite like that

tomb

Do you think the tv coverage will have the crowd noise turned down so any morons chants wont be heard? I still think if the players walk off a few people will be quite happy with themselves. Lets hope that it isnt as bad as we are fearing though from Hollands warm up session that seems unlikely.

Stan Drop

Tristan, do you think that UEFA follows LMC?

Stan Drop

Let's put this game out of its misery /sic) now and look forward to the second half of the season. After recent performances I am quite optimistic that it will go a lot better , weather always permitting. A few more good results in the CB40, and even the awful T20 will help to boost morale as well.

chrissafc

platini obviously brown nosing poland/ukraine for votes for his election

chrissafc

uefa would be interested if it happened in england

Tristan

totally agree with you standrop

Tristan

no it wouldnt. the racist people in the stadium dont go there to hound the players off the pitch, they go to a stadium to rip on the players. if the game gets called off they dont get the opportunity

Stan Drop

That sounds as if UEFA is condoning racism. The captains of all of the teams should make a joint declaration that they will agree with each other to walk off in those circumstances.

tomb

Its raining steadily in Durham

poolynorm

Talking of Yvette any news of umbrellas and covers etc.

tomb

I dont think the players should walk off, that means the idiots will get their way again.

Tristan

we need yvette to leave the us the keys again like she did last night

poolynorm

How about a LMC rave on Satda night.Spread the word but don't let Yvette find out.

chrissafc

uefa have said theu will get booked is another joke

Tristan

i really hope the players do walk off if there is any racial abuse going on. referees instructed to book them if they do, its gonig to be a farce

chrissafc

Uefa what a joke they are

Tristan

uefa say the abusing of the holland players was not racially motivated. apparently it was just ooh and ahh ing, done very quickly to make it sound like monkey chants :/

Tristan

plenty of space under the living quarters to fill up with grub. ive had a hot tub and a pool table fitted in the back

Tristan

we'll come and cheers you on in the bowls, then all head down in the super luxurious lmccc coach

Tristan

iw as encouraged by stephsafc's performance, so i think the bowling is sorted how it is. chrissafc can come in to replace bryn. half price prok sarnies mean s we can buy double the amount as normal so thats good. check the best before date though. dont want us gonig down with a case of the bonettis

poolynorm

Tristy whats the arrangements for Sunday? Are we travelling down on Saturday and stopping at a Travelodge?I've a Bowls match so will need picking up at HQ.Ridgey will provide the music whilst Brando reckons he can get pork sarnies half price after 2.00pm.No drinking on the bus probably means bryn won't be coming.How's the rest of the squad?

tomb

It was an exciting finish at least. I would love just two or three days sitting at the cricket, no rain, just watching the game, bored of retreating to the members lounge this season.

Tristan

tbh the lancs game would have been a different game if not for the rain, no telling how it might have ended otherwise

tomb

And I really need to learn how to type...

tomb

Have we declared yet, bearing in mind there won't be a full days paly, possibly no play. Its so frustrating waiting 6-7 months for the season to start and then to suffer the amount of rain we've had, even though the Lancs game was completed it was ruined by the rain, havent been able to sit out and enjoy the paly much this season due to the cold and rain.

stephsafc

Nah I drove so no bother to me. Had to pick my best mate up though. I didnt see Colly no, but I do know he was there. Apparently he had an xray on his hand and its just bruising. Obviously, that isnt definite.

salmon

Any further news about his hand

tomb

Colly? He was in Austins around 6.30.

Tristan

did you see colly?

tomb

Hope the metro strike didnt cause too much bother

stephsafc

They did a bit of both last night, it was a great night.

tomb

I find the bloke a bit annoying, however I prefer their more recent poppy stuff to yellow, trouble etc.

stephsafc

Correct Tristan, and correct tomb, yeah the support acts were rubbish!! And yeah the piano broke just before paradise ha ha, it only took them about 3 minutes to get it working again. It was amazing Brandonia, the Xylobands were crazy!

via SMS

Brandonia: Interesting that. Stage was in front of the South Stand for KoL last year. Not really a fan of Chris Martin like.

tomb

Heard the support acts were a bit naff, hiding under the covers. I believe a replacement piano was needed?

Tristan

i bet they didnt stop people from standing!

Tristan

there must have been tons of people there? what so the grass was all people, then the south stand, corners, and east & west stand were all people too?

stephsafc

the grass was covered with plastic covers though so that it doesnt ruin the pitch though.

stephsafc

Yes, the stage position differs, but last night it was in the north stand, with a bit coming out of it, and there were people on the grass and in the seats in the rest of the stadium.

Tristan

*sol

Tristan

not been to a gig at the, where do tehy put the stage etc? centre circle with people around or in a corner, im imagining people are on the grass rather than in teh stands?

poolynorm

ancs game.

poolynorm

I've seen plenty of Cold Play in the DCL.Sure Brando has as well.About right Bri just proves you sometimes need a bit of good fortune to help you on the way.Not forgetting the L

BrianT

Looks like 4 draws, all rain affected. We may have lost to Somerset at home, who knows what would have happened at Surrey and we had a chance to win at Lords and today. Maybe 50 points up the spout.

stephsafc

Gig was cracking! No time to sleep! Great night, just suffering now lol.

Tristan

surely you got plenty of sleep during the gig, or was it too loud steph?

Tristan

im jsut munching on a bacon & brown sarnie meself. otherwise i wouldve answered much sooner

stephsafc

Morning everyone. Looks like its going to be a washout today, but we'll see. It will give me a chance to have a nap this rain, as I didn't get in last night till 12.40am from Coldplay. Haway Durham!

Tristan

brandy, i look to the wicket takers over economy bowling. bob is a fine bowler dont get me wrong though

via SMS

Brandonia: Corned beef and brown sauce sandwiches for 10 o'clock folks. If someone cracks a whip I'll be away in a gallop!

poolynorm

Heard Marchy is guest of honour down at the races tomorra.Tristy if it came to the crunch who would you have Brando or Mark Davies.

via SMS

Brandonia: Complaining about my bowling yet I was top wicket taker in ye first innings? Weird. I'll let the results do the talking.

poolynorm

If a protests on the cards then bryn and Ridgey are probably the best bet.They still have the placards and chains from the CT affair.

Tristan

marchy is a fine bowler and i happen to think they dovetail beautifully, we are far from a one man team in the bowling department imo

Tristan

oh aye. i will fully support him. support and encourage is my, rather long winded, middle name!

poolynorm

He tends to get cheap wickets on the back of Marchy.About as lively as one of his packed lunches.Needs to spend more time under the watchful eye of Fenns up at the Riggs.

poolynorm

Brando wasn't impressed with the Umps around 5.00.They waited a short while before play could restart then they reached the top of the steps before it rained again.Then he mentioned Support and Encouragement.Never heard of them.Maybe Ridgey has their CD.

Tristan

do they ever declare to play one innings matches at test level?

Tristan

do they ever declare to play one innings matches at test level?

Stan Drop

Looks like no play will be possible at Edgbaston either. Alternating betwen rain and heavy rain all day! Could be a couple of pointless days play Saturday and Sunday

Tristan

bit harsh on him i think, he scored about 40-50 and took 4 wickets, was your closest competitior for MOM. i thought he bowled topper

Tristan

whats the crack with his banter, think i must have missed that?

poolynorm

Cheers Tristy.Looks like Marchy is going to be chomping at the bit.I suggest fining Brando 2 cricket teas for his banter yesterday.Totally out of line.Bit like his bowling and batting really. Welcome to bigwolls.Have you signed up to the LMCC? What's your CV like?

Tristan

billy doctrove is retiring :(

chrissafc

chuffed for rushy, he's had his tough times but the last 2 games for him have been great for him. 10 wickets is excellent.

Tristan

very happy for chris rushy. more difficult decisions for geoff coming up

chrissafc

rain seems to have killed the game. some good encouraging cricket and hopefully we can push on for our next game after the t20 madness.

Tristan

i suppose seeing as this match will probably end where it is it's not too early to give the man of the match award out; and that goes to departing captain poolynorm for his magnificient century in the first innings

Tristan

were lucky to have such a fearsome attack

Tristan

i think brandy would have had somethign to say about that, not forgetting stephsafc & ridgeley who also both bowled well in this match. its a team effort here at lmccc

marchy22

I would have fancied taking.8 to give me a 10 wicket match

bryn

Any truth in the rumour lmc now stands for live midnight chat??

Tristan

at least!

marchy22

I would have taken a 5fer at least for you tristan but weather isn't going to allow me to

Response to Tristan

It's not far off!

9:12am

ATM

At prsent it's not viable for us to have an ATM installed. NatWest have historically at certain international games installed an ATM but they won't be doing it this year. Be prepared!

9:12am

Tristan

so yvette is it true you fell asleep at the laptop yesterday surrounded by coffee cups and biscuit wrappers?

Tristan

cheers marchy. had you pencilled in for a five fer today :(

marchy22

Draw it is then. Stupid weather spoiling a cracking last days play. Everyone keep well and ill see yous all Sunday

Stan Drop

BTW, looking at the weather map this a.m. I don't fancy the chances of any play at all today.

Stan Drop

Excellent idea Bigwolls, but a bank would have to service it regularly and given that match days are relatively infrequent (taking the year as a whole) it might not be worth their while. Worth enquiring though. NatWest might provide a temporary one at the international matches they sponsor.

bigwolls

Incidentally, not that it affects immediate future but wouldnt it be a good idea for the club to have an operating ATM at the ground - the ability to draw cash there on match days would be of great benefit ??

Day four

Well it's raining here...

8:49am
