I thought it was interesting to read that it seems changes are on the way at Edgbaston .Farbrace is reported as not being at all happy with the jobs for the old boys setup as it is at the moment.I did not realise that all our coaches are made up by ex players Troughton,Frost,Westwood and Welch .There is talk of David Saker the ex England coach joining

I can understand why heíd think that, itís been jobs for the boys probably since Inverarity and how long ago was that? David Saker would be good but Pop Welch has none nothing wrong and the bowling isnít really the problem at Edgbaston, itís the brittle batting in red ball cricket thatís the problem.

That is interesting to hear.

There used to be a Warwickshire fans forum (think it was bearsfans.co.uk) - does anyone know what happened to it?

The Bears forum just disappeared, I've no idea why.

The rumours about Farbrace not being happy with the behind the scenes set up  seem to have been true and i am not surprised to see Troughton has got the bullet.I would not be surprised to see Ian Bell added to the set up

There were clear problems this summer but I also think there's enough promise in the younger players that it won't take a huge effort to get things on a better track for next year. Part of the problem is that the 2 best bowlers were missing all summer, it's great that England are interested but it didn't help the bears in a shortened season and an extended international schedule which ran through it almost completely.
