A new county season - will Somerset actually win something?

So today marks the beginning of the new county season, less than a week after the World Cup final. Cricket really is a 365 day a year sport.

Somerset look like they might be able to improve on their treble of near misses last year. As well as powerful batting - Trescothick, Hildreth, Kieswetter - they have boosted their bowling attack. Steve Kirby is an astute signing, while overseas spin, in the form of Ajantha Mendis and then Murali Kartik, will get plenty of wickets, especially given that most English batsmen seem allergic to using their feet to spin. And George Dockrell could be an excellent signing too.

In the meantime, here are 10 county players to watch (click the links to read why)-
Simon Jones
Alviro Petersen
Owais Shah
Amjad Khan
Graham Onions
James Taylor
George Dockrell
Danny Briggs
Jonny Bairstow
Tom Maynard

What are your thoughts on the list? And, indeed predictions for the new season?
