Still no explanation about Coad's omission and Brooks inclusion? No breakthrough after 12 overs and it is looking very ominous.

During the Scarborough Festival, Adam Lyth and his wife were guests of the YCCC Supporters' Association one evening. His wife stated that their baby was due on 9th. September, so it is already three days overdue. He will hardly be able to concentrate on cricket.

Always had the feeling if we were to get anything out of this match we'd have to bat for what seems like an eternity.

Surely someone is due a big innings.

Was hoping for maybe a couple of early wickets with the 10.30 start and the new ball which might have restricted them to only 500, but now........

Me thinks we are dooooomed 🙁 Somerset likely to beat Lancs. at Taunton. Maybe early (for us) introduction of spin is result of Middlesex being docked points for slow over rate at the Oval?

1) Even if Somerset win we are not doomed

2) In any event, how can we possibly say that Somerset will beat Lancs 90 minutes into a four day game!

Here we are again with lots of pessimistic doom and gloom comments after LESS than 2 hrs play on the first day.
Surrey have got off to a great start but anything can happen. How many times have we seen 2-4 wickets fall quickly so 100/0 can easily turn to 180/4.

To add a degree of optimism, Lancs stuffed Somerset at Old Trafford. They're near the bottom of the table for reasons (as we are), and unreliable batting is the main reason, in Somerset's case.

Also, if they're put their faith in spin, Lancs can at least challenge them in this department, with four potential spinners in their side. (Though I would back the quality of Leach and Bess above Lancs's quantity.)

Middlesex wash-out is another plus for us
Bowlers win matches
