Interesting post that mate. I wouldn't say it was all doom and gloom though for Surrey despite your position. I watched the CB40 game against Glamorgan where your batters smashed them to all parts. Hamilton-Brown and Adans are both inexperienced in their respective roles but they're seemed to be a good spirit around the team and a feeling that things were on the up. Davies is a real star (although surely England bound) and Jason Roy looks a big talent. Dernbach needs some support but Meaker has some pace and Tremlett has shown he can do it in the past. A bit of confidence and that team could go places. They hinted on TMS last night that KP is going to Middlesex so you might be dodging a bullet their. I'm more positive when it comes to English talent. I think there's a lot out there but some need to kick on and start making big runs/taking wickets. Guys like Taylor, Vince, Rashid, Malan, Payne etc could all be top players and form a strong England team in the years to come. I agree though that the county game needs looked at AGAIN!. I'm a fan of the championship and 2 divisions, I think it's been a big success. Having 40 over cricket though makes no sense to me and there is too much 20/20. I also like the idea of having a set day for 50 over cricket, but SKY would never go for that and ultimately it's them funding the game so what they want goes. Having say 2 under 21's per side is a good suggestion too, i'd be all for that.
