Poor stuff from them.

Signed Chanderpaul (Aged 42) and Dane Vilas, SA keeper as non-overseas players.

Add to their recruitment of McLaren.

Then remember they signrd Buttler not too long back and a Yorkshireman as coach and I am struggling to see the "Lanc" in Lancashire.

They won a county championship in 2011 with a team full of local talent, now they're signing 42 year old Kolpak's!!

Dane Vilas averages just under 40 in first class cricket, he's a better option than a Sussex born keeper who is not up to the standard required.

Looks a bit desperate.

Chapple calls it drafting in some experience to help his young squad.

Presume he wants to help them by keeping them out of the first team!

They already have a popular decent keeper in Alex Davies!

I know they have always like to play a 'wall' at 3 or 4, but Chanderpaul might need a bit of re-pointing at his age.

Peter, Moxon guided the club to relegation in 2011 and then subsequently went upstairs. All I've ever stated since the season ended was that replacements are needed for Gale and Hodd, this still remains the case.

When you say "all I've stated since the season ended" you're pretty much spot on, I'll give you that!

In the context that nothing is controversial about it, most on here are protectionist so therefore that's the reason consensus isn't possible.
