This test match had it all, and is why, despite many thinking it is dull, proves all the doubters wrong. Also a magnificent series. Jos Buttler came of age as a red ball batsman, Cooky deserved to finish on an absolute high, and it was fitting for the Burnley Express to end the match with  his own personal record, still a magnificent athlete at 36. A 14 over spell to finish. A special summer for the long game.

Lancs allowing Yorks back into the Roses match. Chasing anything over 150 will likely be tough for us at the moment.

 

Yep. Poor day for Lancs, essentially all out for less than 150 today, Yorks well set 84 runs ahead with 7 wickets still in hand and Hants already have the win in the bag.

Poor do Matty. 

Big questions need asking about the whole management/coaching/playing staff. Surely we can do better than this, or does it not matter in the big scheme of things? Regular fans deserve proper answers and to see a whole new approach from the club. It appears they don’t have the real drive or ambition.

"Everybody has to look to themselves. The players have to look at themselves...but so do the coaching team"

Head coach Glen Chapple says everyone involved with #Lancashire has to take responsibility with the county on the verge of @CountyChamp relegation. https://t.co/ZnudU8j3Rp

Would you like to see Allott and Chapple remove from their positions and who would you like to see in? I would like to see Andy Flower or Greame Flower there but looking at things I dont a change in structure. I think Allott and Chapple will stay. Do I think we see a big changes in personal? I hope so. Glesson signing is a good one. But we need more

The club took its eyes off the (cricket) ball years ago. 

Seems largely now to be a conferencing  and events operation with a cricket club bolted on. Having dinosaurs like Allott still pulling the strings on the playing side says it all.

Im not sure how it all works committee wise and money wise at Lancashire. 

The playing staff isnt good enough

I think it needs a clean sweep to be honest. 

Couldn't give you a name, but the club has huge potential, and that must be a pull for any young and aspiring coaches. Needs someone with real desire to succeed and who can't accept getting beaten easily - bit of a grizzly Aussie attitude. What's Ricky Ponting up to these days?

Takes a special kind of team to skittle out arch rivals for 209 and finish 105/0 on day 1. Only to lose the game before lunch on day 4 by 95 runs. We’re weak and fold like a pack of cards as soon as Davies gets out.

As far as the season goes slightly unlucky with injury to livi, no one could have predicted both Jennings and Buttler would get selected for the test team and Hameed averaging 9 was pretty pathetic. So with effectively zero batsmen and 50 spinners wasn’t going to end well. 

As for the club I’d like to clear out the jobs for the boys lot. To replace Chapple Stuart law perhaps. I know he’s ex Lancs but he’s been away. We’re crying out for an outside voice. I’d like a main man then a respect coach as the no2. David ripely from northants. An offer to farbrace maybe. Justin langer perhaps someone needs to drive impeccably high standards and to be someone who players look up to and who are intimidated by.

Failing that lot I’d like us for once to think outside the box and take a risk-Shane warne, sangakkara someone inexperienced managerially but with high end international pedigree.

Will any of it happen. Hell no.

I would like to appoint Andy Flower in charge. He would install discipline and a plan. 

Maybe get Greame Flower involve aswell

I expect Farbrace will take over as Head coach of England when Bayliss goes. 

Would Law leaves the West Indies coach or Langer leaves the Australia Coach job for Lancashire job? 

I think Flower could be an option? What do you think?

If we couldnt get Flower why not go for Graeme Flower or Paul Collingwood the head coach job. With someone like David Lloyd as director of cricket. 

We missed Livingstone alot but our batsmans arent good outside Livingstone, Davies, Buttler and Jennings. No young batsman coming through from looks of it. So we need address that massively this winter. Brown and Croft need to go. 

Glesson looks a good signing. 

You watch Lancashire win the 20/20 comp on Saturday now. 

Matt, do you think Allott and Chapple will go? If not can you stated why. I havent follow the behind the scenes stuff and how decisions are made.

Collingwood a decent shout, always sensible, worked very hard as a younger pro to maximise his talents. Durham still struggling financially, not too far from home.

Fowler a long time out of the game, does he have the desire?

David Lloyd, I'd have him as a president, he's too immersed in the tv world to spend quality time at the club.

Anyone on a view on Broad reported to be drop for Sri Lanka? Right decision? 

I'm assuming he's being rested rather than droppedI TMS was suggesting on the last day of the test that Broad and Anderson would be doing one tour each to Sri Lanka and the West Indies. The problem with that was who was going to tell Jimmy he wasn't going to the Caribbean!

That’s about the shape of it. We got 4 tickets but that leaves another couple of lads who will be using touts. On the internet tout sites the going rate is £150 they won’t pay that so they’re going to see what the crack is on the day outside the ground.

So who is going from the Blackburn area?

It's about that time when sellers start getting a bit nervous . . . I wouldn't pay those stupid made-up prices. I've already seen tickets going for more or less face value in the last few days.

The worst one I saw was someone on Ebay selling  a 'wheelchair user and carer' ticket (2 people). And the reason given for not going was 'I broke my leg'. 🤣🙄

Wouldnt drop Anderson at all. Broad probably deserve dropping tbh. 

Was this discuss during the Ed Smith TMS Interview? 

Talking to a friend about Lancashire woes and he suggest Tom Moody which I thought was a good shout. Also suggest Stuart Law.

No chance. They are not yes men (Lancs Venkys style).

They are not being dropped Chaddy but rested. I don't know whether it was in the Ed Smith interview as I didn't hear it but it was discussed on the commentary during the last day's play.

why would Broad or Anderson need resting when we only got 6 test matches in 4 months? 

Anderson has said he feels great even tho he just play 5 test matches without much rest

It's 11-aside Chads. You'll have to chose between Croft and Villas.

Looks like a competitive side on paper.

I would drop Lilley actually. Croft and Livingstone can bowl spinner just as good as Lilley

But Lilley is the pinch hitter that can potentially clear the ropes. Villas can hardly hit it off the square, can't bowl. . . and Butler took the gloves last time he came back (though admittedly he was a bit dodgy - especially keeping to Khan).
