2pts separating 4 teams. With the exception of Essex (way out in front) and Warks (way behind), the rest of the final table is pretty much a study in mediocrity.

I'm off too now, got to feed the troops. Thanks to you all, i've loved all the debate and laughs. I'm a cricket lover who has been lucky enough to talk to cricket lovers all season. Hopefully this will be here next year, it would be really sad if it isn't. Anyway, thanks guys and girls, I will miss you in the long winter months.

Thank you to all of our benevolent reptilian overlords, see you on the forum!

DFishman has been enabled, and with that I'm off too. Will catch anybody else as they come through. Hoppsy, Vitu, Tim Wigmore, Sir Edwards, Mr. Culley, the President of the Rikki Clarke Fan Club, and everyone else involved in this: thanks for another great summer! Slash autumn. Slash spring.
Take care everyone, winter well. Hope the blog is still here next year if not see you on the forums or on twitter

Well least Crane will be well rested, Hampshire hardly picked him
by Lawrence Payne9/28/2017 4:11:46 PM
take care Kieran

I'm off- if this blog doesn't exist next season, it's been a pleasure!

Hampshire contributing nicely to the England cause. 2 players for the Ashes squad...........Kolpackshire?
by Mugshot1209/28/2017 4:09:26 PM
someone explain how the best 3 teams last year, become 3 of the worst this one?

Rod also enabled. (Oo er...)

I'm very cross(bow) about it.

by Joe Tompkins9/28/2017 4:06:14 PM
it is ironic that the 2 point penalty sends them down

JoeT is enabled.

last chance comes tomorrow when ECB intervene
by Lawrence Payne9/28/2017 4:04:28 PM
I felt Carberry had been fortunate to be picked in the first place, (should have been Compton anyway), but certainly was unlucky to then be dropped having performed respectably.
by jeevans909/28/2017 4:04:14 PM
new ball.....Middx's last chance?
by Joe Williams9/28/2017 4:03:40 PM
he discarded himself
by Lawrence Payne9/28/2017 4:02:38 PM
I presume we're not mentioning Kev- (apprehended by ECB Special Unit)
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 4:02:11 PM
Carberry was treated poorly for sure
by Lawrence Payne9/28/2017 4:01:53 PM
His county form since hasn't exactly proved me right, but I always thought Carberry was hard done by to be chucked after being fairly respectable in the 13/14 debacle
by Will Colwell9/28/2017 4:01:16 PM
Compton first time around must be in with a shout George.
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 4:00:24 PM
The moral of which seems to be, pick your Kolpaks wisely and you shall do well in the first division.
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 3:59:45 PM
Whilst Onions is in the news, is he the most prematurely discarded England player of recent years?
by GeorgePotter199/28/2017 3:59:34 PM
Well its been interesting season for sure

SJacko7 has had their account enabled.

He'd have been a good "fit" at Northants.
by PT10799/28/2017 3:55:07 PM
Just signed a new contract I think PT.
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 3:54:31 PM
Would be good if the ECB could sort out the points system for next year. Reward wins better. As it stands, it seems a bit of a lottery, settled by overrates and crossbow bolts.

If anyone poaches Stuart Poynter, there'll be hell to pay next season
by PT10799/28/2017 3:54:07 PM
Although it is amusing that it's going a bit pear-shaped for India.
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 3:53:24 PM
As it states in the small print of many financial documents, past performance is no guarantee of future success :)
by MisanthropeGirl9/28/2017 3:53:19 PM
Given that nothing's going to happen and I suspect people will start to trickle off, this is going to be the LAST PLUG for where you want to be to rend your garments and wail at England's Ashes performance with the rest of us/discuss DISGUSTING POACHING that occurs during the off-season.
