County cricket eh..... What a frigging sport! 1 run win.... Excellent stuff..... And you know what... I'm REALLY coming around to this 3 conference format, first time in 7 years we've played nthants, great stuff
For a while Hampshire have been a top class 5 a side team (Vince Northeast Dawson Abbott Abbas) but there's nowhere near enough beyond that, the top teams have much more depth. (Swap Abbas for Edwards in 2017-2019, Northeast for Bailey in 2017)
Looking at today's team, Weatherley & Organ average about 20 with the bat, McManus and Alsop both under 30. Barker being back strengthens us, and Holland is a solid allrounder, but if you look at say Surrey or Lancashire's XIs, you find no such weaknesses.
I can't really knock Alsop and his two 100s this season, but essentially Hampshire get skittled unless Vince or Northeast get runs, and its been like that for a few seasons.
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
