Superb player but his record in management thus far isn’t great.

Having a small squad can have its benefits. These are its downsides.

Had to work today, so missed the game, sadly (or not).

I’m told the performance was something of a blueprint. I’ve said all I can on the lack of experienced forward presence.

I fear we’ll plough on like this until January, with the odd decent result picked up here and there to just keep us out of the bottom three.

That may be classed as a success if we are at least entertained along the way. Sounds like that wasn’t the case today.

At least we went out to the eventual winners (which probably means we would’ve won it, or summat).

Great entertainment today. One wicket left to take.

Aye but Mahmood has just gone for 16 in his first over. We ripped through the top-order batsmen in the first innings before it went tits up. Hopefully not a repeat here.

As good as could be expected with only two wickets left this morning. Croft deserves great credit.

Up to the field now to either restrict the runs or take us the wickets for victory.

The trophy presentation takes place after the match, so it would be nice to get it on the back of a win.

I wouldn’t touch any of them, to be honest.

Jai Quitongo a few years ago was fast, strong and skilful. A nightmare to mark or defend against. Peterborough and Doncaster bid for him and Morton turned them down. Quitongo then got injured and was out for a good while. He didn’t come back anywhere near the same player. Morton were going to stick by him but he refused to sign a new deal and ended up at... Partick! Last seen in Iran.

The real interesting name on that list is Islam Faruz. Signed by Chelsea and touted as Scotland’s answer to Messi. A classic case of being given everything before achieving anything, sadly.

Tanner I’ve seen more than most, given a family link I have with Motherwell presently. Injuries aside, he always looked decent. I thought he was Bolton bound, but it didn’t happen.

I'm following with cautious optimism. We're effectively 142-3. I reckon we need at least another 150 runs to be in with a shout of winning the match.

As said pre-season, it’s always a risk going in with a small squad, as you’re basically relying on luck with regards to injuries and suspensions.

With a reduced budget, BBM said he was happy to put his faith in the young players. Morley has certainly stepped up in the early games but, mercifully perhaps, we’ve not had to go any deeper yet.

In my opinion, and I’ve not really changed this since the beginning of August, we are still a couple of experienced players light, especially up front.

Where do we find those players within our budget? If I knew the answer to that I’d be working for the football club.

There is still something that can be done until January with the existing squad, though. Starting positively and then reverting to a more negative style needs to go, for a start. It’s simply not how a home team should play. I know the risk is getting another Peterborough result but we could just as easily get another Tranmere, the irony being these were both away from home. That said, without the attacking options, it’s easier said than done.

The fact that BBM failed, despite his efforts, to bring in a forward before the transfer deadline won’t be lost on him. We can’t just hope it will somehow work itself out before January, however.

It will be interesting to see how we approach the next game now.

I’ve been watching this on and off today and as much as you have to tip your hat to Simpson for a fine innings, he was too easily backed up. Definitely looks a case of foot-off-the-gas syndrome.

Unless we get another centurion this innings I can see a first defeat of the season coming. A real shame, as Middlesex have been rank this season.

But with Davies gone and night watchman Mahmood in, its looking iffy already.

That’s just capped a tremendous summer of cricket. Hopefully we can get Maxwell back next year and make a decent fist of the First Division.

I’m not going to go over the top about this result or performance the same way I didn’t join in with the media hypefest over the Southend result and performance.

Our true level lies somewhere in between the two.

Denly looks much more like an opener this innings. He obviously wanted out in the first to get to the hospital for the birth of his second child :)
