    Cant wait until I can have a lazy day at Old Trafford with a few pints of Thwaites and a newspaper.

    Saqib Mahmood giving it some proper wheels here https://twitter.com/lancscricket/status/­1383467837667250184?s=20

    Bit of a queue for an England cap these days but his time will come.

    Chilwell and James making City look ordinary.

    And Ziyech is lovely to watch.

    Foakes on his way there too.

    Surrey’s batting lineup is absolutely ridiculous in this game.

    Hopefully this’ll be the year that Matt Parkinson gets a chance to play some red ball cricket for Lancs.

    I’m generally in favour of spinners in particular getting lots of time to perfect their craft in domestic (four day) cricket but this wicket yesterday suggests he’s ready.

    Caused loads of crashes, insulted people, abandonded his family to sleep in an altitude tent as a 2nd cat....

    Fair enough. I assumed there must be some sort of egomaniacal behaviour attached to this story (possibly alongside whatever Sumo is alluding to).

    If he was juicing right, wouldn’t he have been able to help Skinny close Arlen down though ;)

    Damien Clayton and Jon Archibold were both latecomers to the sport who discovered a talent in their 20s after spending quite some time as amateurs.

    I’m not saying I believe anybody is above suspicion, just that it does happen.

    What happened to Arlen? Did he stop racing after his breakout season (at the age of 45)?

    What’s the story with Richardson? I understand why some people don’t particularly admire his route into the sport but it does seem to be the case for domestic ‘pros’ that they have to self fund their careers for a certain amount of time because they get paid eff all.

    Is he a bit of a whopper on top of that?

    I personally enjoyed him winning solo at that race (Lincoln GP?) without a team a couple of years ago.

    Edit: I know he lives in a big house and worked in finance but that increasingly seems to apply to half of this forum.

    Heard the Pidcock interview with Mitch Docker. I thought he seemed quite likeable. Got the impression he just loves riding his bike and doesn’t feel a great deal of pressure.

    Rival PM is left (NDS) crank arm only. Won’t tempt me tbh.
