Onions is a walking joke book. Whoever holds up the 'I Onions' banner i'm guessing will be MadForIt.

Ha! gotta laugh at Aus today. What the fuck is that team? worse than some of the sides we put out in the early-mid 80's after Lillee Marsh and Chappell retired.

Watson... LOL!!!! scored 60, but fuck he's awful. Honestly, the second Haddin was ruled out I was officially going for Enlgland in this test. There is noone here genuinely worth rooting for. Katich, North, Clarke and Siddle are, but the shit outweighs the good here.

Boo to the selectors. Write it down 30 July, 2009, the day Australian cricket died

^ but that wasnt the point was it. The point was they for some inexplicable reason, love Watson. How many chances does a guy get? I mean, he is a liability just because you cant gaurentee he wont be injured 2 minutes in. Other than that, no matter how bad he is playing or whatever, the second they get an excuse, he is in the team. Hughes was just the unlucky one who didnt score runs in two tests so he got the arse.

How bad is Hussey going? How did he retain his spot over Hughes. Hughes has scored 472 runs in the last 5 tests, in that time, Hussey has scored 213. Hmmmmmmmm

Hussey has played 11 tests to score his last 472 runs. That DOESNT include the abortion that was his effort in the first innings of this game

i'm still outraged he got dropped. he paid the price for johnson's woeful form. watson shouldn't even be a consideration, and border agrees, and hussey is of course a protected species. mate me and you we might be armchair experts but i reckon we'd do a much better job as selectors...

meanwhile inte.. surely you aren't quite so anti-clarke anymore? i mean come on, he's made it now. though the garbage he dribbles out to the media makes you want to vomit. you look at past captains of the side, border, waugh, chappell, chappell.... they had a bit of colour. clarke is a pr robot.

No wonder the Poms are increasingly apathetic (let alone crap at) towards cricket when it rains all the time.

I was there today
it was very hot

Saw Lee and north warm up in the nets first thing

Then was annoyed by the 12noon start when it was bright and sunny
Flintoff and broad batted so well
Prior looked great

Johnson was shit as usual
Hilfenhaus was pretty good

Swan is a legend for bowling ponting
ONIONS was pretty damn good - star for the future

Was surrounded by some aussies - they seemed ok. Knocked back the pints. Dressed is some aussie rules gear

Chants of the day

Stand up if your 1-0 up.
Your even worse then New Zealand.
Where's your ponting gone?
Theres only one mitchell johnson.
Johnson, Johnson give us a wave.
Your just a shit, fucking colony, shit fucking colony.
Who are ya?

Probably a draw now
