Apologies for another cricket thread but I know there are a few of us interested!
Since I first heard about this new competition I really did wonder why cricket needed to provide something for those who can't concentrate on one thing for roughly three hours. Having now read the details, link above, it sounds very much like a load of old bo11ocks to me.
I support Essex and England so have no affiliation to a north London franchise or, indeed, any other. I doubt very much I shall be watching but would be interested to hear what others may think.

Extraordinary innings. I’m lost for words.

Chuckaturd no more as Leasing.com are the new sponsors. I would love to know how EFL manage to find any sponsor for a competition so widely avoided and disparaged by football fans.

Signed on loan for Ipswich. Shame.

I buy the EADT Monday to Friday to read on the train to work and it's been very noticeable since the end of last season that coverage of the Us have declined to almost nothing. The last two headlines are as follows:
20 May - Mandron & Gondoh released by Us
27 June - Szmodic's 16 year stay at Colchester is finally over
Not a word on the Us between those dates nor since, despite a flurry (by Col U standards) of transfer activity in the last few days. Carl Marston keeps reporting on his park runs though!
Needless to say there is no shortage of "stories" about our relegated neighbours, although there has been very little to report in terms of actual events down on the farm. Also plenty of column inches about local non-league football.
Just wonder whether anyone else had noticed? Perhaps the club fallen out with the EADT? Or vice versa?

Just announced he has passed away after being taken ill a few days ago. Only 49.

...as I think there may be a lot of people wanting to argue with McGreal.
One assumes this "brilliant" season will not have gone unnoticed elsewhere. I'm sure the chairman is already fielding calls from other clubs keen to secure the services of a manager such as JM.

Typical commuting chaos this evening at Liverpool Street, compounded by zero information from Lesser Anglia. As I was about to board a train someone told me it has just been cancelled but the next intercity service would be on platform 12 and that’s where he was heading. The gentleman in question was none other than Dion Dublin!

Someone set fire to several pallets of artificial turf. Cost of damage reported to be “six figures”.
Who would do such a thing?

Or it will be when it opens!
Can't believe I'd not heard of this until this morning. A feather in the town's cap in my opinion but can Colchester claim any other world record holders...past or present?

Not trying to start a Brexit debate.
Just in case anyone was planning to drive in the EU any time soon please be aware you need to take action to ensure you are travelling legally on the correct IDP. Action also required if you a UK licence holder living in the EU. Failure to do so may require you to take another driving test!
Another note of caution...you will need a form, or forms, from the Post Office (not all IDPs will be valid in all EU countries so you may need more than one). As the majority of people knew nothing about this until very recently there was a bit of a scramble for the forms and, naturally, every Post Office within a reasonable distance of my office in central London ran out last week.
If you are abroad for Easter best check it out.
