Well done Kent & all with a meagre return of batting points, with a chance to clinch the title with the ' play-off ' against Warwickshire. I'm afraid fulltime moaning fans are found everywhere & are a breed of their own. I support a football team which has done very well over recent years (with a bit of failure thrown in), but there are a good few who find something to moan about, even in victory the opposition were better or we were lucky. Top the table, but every other team are better, players are useless until they are dropped that is, when they become star players who are indispensable. The manager & board are hopeless, the tea bar is no good etc. The strange thing the same people turn up match after match, year after year. They must love the club, but finding fault all the time means they cannot enjoy the success of players & teams that come good after poor spells when they have written them off as useless. Players & teams are of course not above criticism, but it much more fun to look for the best & so enjoyable when success arrives.
We can enjoy the triumph for a while, before looking forward to the challenges of Division 1 cricket next year.
PS Shame Sky have opted for the Surrey v Essex match for broadcast next week, a game with nothing on it. At least Warks. & Kent have a trophy to battle over, even if they have both achieved their main goal. No disrespect to Surrey (congratulations on the title) or Essex, we shall just have to wait & see if Sky have chosen well.
