The batsmen should feel utterly ashamed but on the plus side Lees scored 1000 runs last season.

I don't want a refund for my £16 entry and £6 car parking and petrol from Leeds I just want to see my team do justice to the name of the county.

A team in decline suggests it was once better than this but some of this team have sadly not been as good as some seem to think.

Siddy is an exception and now past his best but still a class above some others with effort and determination. But Brooks is expensive and military medium and being out bowled by youngsters like Coad so he must be on borrowed time with Fisher in the wings demanding a game.

The top order is just impossible to work out what to do. Ballance and Marsh would be helpful and even Though he's leaving Rhodes has to be a better option than all of the top 5 bar Lyth.

But these decisions are taken by Gale and Moxon along with Pyrah presumably. Three old boys with two to close to the current team so they select on misplaced loyalty and having eyes turned by runs they have made in the seconds and Academy on the way up.

An outsider may not appeal to some but they are impartial in thinking and don't have the same set of blinkers. I was ok with Gales appointment but have been proven wrong. We are not a county who should be with a coach who is starting out. We deserve an experienced coach with international knowledge and proven track record. I am sure others will tell me Dizzy was inexperienced and we took a punt on him years ago but he had worked in several countries and played top level cricket and learned from top coaches.

We need one of Gale or Pyrah to learn from a Dizzy equivalent but not both learning as they middle along sadly.

I think this has the makings of our most embarrassing defeat I can recall unless others know differently? It's up there with the defeats by minor counties in the old Gillette Cup in my view.

From dominating County Championship to relegation material in two years is disgraceful, where has the fight gone? Even in recent seasons when Yorkshire were under the cosh or weakened squad wise, someone stepped up to the plate and turned the momentum around.

The club has a lot to answer for and people need to be made accountable. The board are more interested in preserving international status at Headingley and getting on board with this City Based T20 game, while the newly appointed coaching staff are out of their depth and appear to have lost the dressing room.
No Pyrah, no party

Joking aside - and i know i can be flippant sometimes - i really do feel very sorry for anyone who has booked accommodation for three or four nights in Scarborough..
Not to mention the Scarborough Club itself who are presumably going to be seriously out of pocket from a two day game.
I dont know who's fault it is - or what the solution might be - but this isn't good enough.

Come on Gale, get your bat out of your locker. Even if it's just to beat the top order with.

The rest of them are making Leaning look like Tendulkar by comparison this innings.

It's worse than watching the Daleks from behind the sofa Talking of which, who should we exterminate in a cricketing sense obviously, I'm not advocating murder ?
I tipped us to be 6th and would be delighted if we finished that high. Supporting Yorkshire and Barnsley FC, albeit from afar, is going to be painful the next few months I think

What annoys me more than anything was the obvious batting deficiencies appeared to have been completely ignored by management. Did they really think that they could replace 2 or 3 batsmen of the quality of Root and Bairstow (who are once in a decade batsmen ) with homegrown players? They have known the situation re R and B for last 2 years so should have been looking to recruit from outside - Kolpak or otherwise.
