    Pah, we felt like a permanent non entity up until the Adams revolution. Then it was amazing, and now we're rubbish. Cyclical.
    Yes, I don't think it's a coincidence that our two strongest periods in the past few decades were when we had two really strong captains: Barclay and Adams. There were very different characters and captains but they both pulled up under-achieving sides and made them winners. I wonder if the solution is to find a strong character at another county and offer him the captaincy - can't think of anyone off the top of my head - but it's one idea

      I didn't know he hadn't signed. He's promising but I can't see there being a big rush of counties looking to sign him, I wonder what's going on there.

      I do think Hameed is worth a go - Sussex have got a good record at rehabilitating players who have lost their way or struggled with injuries (Panesar, Jordan, Anyon and possibly Topley), I'm sure other counties will be looking at him though - he's still young.

      Wells is the real mystery though. He was on the verge of the England team a few years back (mind you, half the openers in England were) but he now struggles to score runs in the Second Division. I don't know when his contract is up but if it's this year, he'll get another year to put things right.
      Rawlins - I’ve read in a few places that his contract is up. Hard to be entirely sure though as Sussex don’t reveal contract lengths. If he’s available I would think he’ll get other offers based on his potential. Anuerin Donald, slater at Notts.....examples of average players who got big moves. It’s not often players of his profile are on the market (if he is on the market).

      Wells - it all sounded good after his spell in Australia but he seems to tie himself in knots at times. perhaps he is one who might have benefited from a change of scene. He nearly left when he was on the up a few years ago. From memory , it’s been hard work since then. I hope he finds a way as it will be a sad day when the wells dynasty ends

      That's makes two of us . Held membership since early 1980's I haven't enjoyed this year at all
      Gave mine up this season, mainly due to work. After many years of membership thought at least the club would email me and ask why, not looking for discount or anything but if one of my clients stops at least I ask why, to learn something at least. Felt liked I'd paid for 10 years or so and wasn't really valued. . No idea but it may be different in football, but cricket, County Champs and 50 overs, hardly sells out
      Still love it there tho

      England are in the market for a good captain too, so we have competition.

      Well not quite...if my memory serves me well one Mr Michael Yardy held the position until recently.








      Although anyone could have been forgiven for not realising that we had a batting coach for all the difference he made.

      Did you not receive multiple e-mails to renew. All the members I know (myself included) are just set up on Direct Debit so it automatically renews unless you call in to cancel it. That's the only way you get discounts that I am aware of, also you can opt to give the savings you make to Blackstone youth academy trust.

      Sorry to lose you, Sussex need the support in these days of people drifting away. If you do not get the separate 20 20 membership (reduced £75 charge for members) and just the regular one day, I paid £205 but that may include a donation to Blackstone as well. One days adult CC entry without membership is about £22 and one day games must be about £28. You only need to watch 6-7 days of cricket a season (which is not hard) for it to pay for itself. Also you get reciprocal deals to Horse Racing and other Cricket grounds, as well as access to away pavilions and our pavilion. I think its great value, as you say its just a brilliant place to spend some time to unwind, and like the Albion is an interesting work in progress at the moment.

      No, nothing. Difference here is I always paid for mine in one lump at the ticket office. Frankly never thought of dd. Around April I normally get a small investment bonus so always used that, with no change!. Have no issue with price, its great value. I doubt it but I really hope the long game survives till i retire, 6 years to go. This year my job changed and I could only get there twice. My old membership was the county/50overs. Being a bit lazy and asking yourself rather than club, is the direct debit monthly, as in 12 payments a year? In which case I might swop it for the gym (honest, I will start again next week) membership that gives me little more than guilt.

      I have been disappointed in the output from Jordan. As an experienced international I would have expected him to have shouldered more responsibility on the bowling front and supported Ollie Robinson much more. His batting has also been underwhelming.
      Adding to my wisdom and a regular basis. But still rank as dumb and daft.

      Yes two games is pushing the boundaries (no pun intended) of getting value out of the membership.

      No its one off charge taken out of your account at the end of January. Mine was £280 last year with both membership's 20 20 in the pavilion and CC and one day.

      Nice thing to spend your bonus on, I always longingly used to look at the life time memberships that were priced to your age, I think they may have been £2.5-3K at the time (more money than sense purchase).

      We need a signature signing to get us excited, someone like Rashid or Carey.

      Well one game left a dead rubber, then we do not have to think about it until spring 2020.
