Lets hope he can get over his personal issues and really make a difference to Essex in 2014.

As a Member who saw Monty's home appearances I have to say I wasn't impressed with him, he came across as a defensive bowler who sent plenty of 4 balls, his fielding is laughable at best, he also cannot bat to save his life, apart from that....
I would be surprised if he lasts the 2 years of his contract, also by signing him we haven't done Tom Craddock our promising leg spinner any real favours either.

Whilst he's certainly a character, I'm not a big fan of Monty as a cricketer...his "turn" just isn't threatening to top class bowlers.

Considering he also appears to be several sandwiches short of a picnic, I think it's a bit daft by Essex tbh...especially if it's to the detriment of one of their up and coming spinners.
