i've got mixed feelings about Compton. I truly believe he stitched Somerset up when he left, having had his head turned by Gus. So part of me is pleasantly happy that it has all gone worng for him. But, he was ace when at Somerset and by all accounts a thoroughly nice bloke, so i can;t hold a grudge and do hope he comes back and does a 'Trescothick' for Middlesex. If he can motivated, he could be churning out runs for another 7 or 8 years easily. Will never be as destructive or as pleasing to the eye as Tresco, but can score a bucket full of runs if he gets motivated.

He will need some mega runs to get back in the England side though now youd think.

i don't think England will coming knocking again, even if he does score a boat load of runs. Two fairly spectacular failures at the top level don't get forgotten easily.
