Mark my words: Australia will squander this somehow.

Serves them fucking right, garbage garbage performance from everyone from the selectors to the captain. I don't blame the shit players selected because they cant help it if they arent the best cricketers around, id play if they picked me, and i bet im close now!

Ponting HAS to retire from captaincy. He is no good. We HAVE to appoint a full-time selector who doesnt have a 'NSW clear-out' agenda. We HAVE to bring back players like Hughes and Lee.

Shame on the Aussie administration.

And Madforit, I understand you're excited, but I mean SOME of those comments are fairly racist. I can take ribbing and banter and all that, but you've crossed a line there. We are all apparently prisoners to a past we never agreed with.

I was waiting for this

Ponting can't die happy now... knowing that he is only the second person to lead Australia to two Ashes losses in England and the first in over a century. He's already said he wants to pay until he's 38 so he can have a chance of winning in England.

And we dish out as good as we cop mate. Though most of those are pretty tired. Our insults evolve, they've been clinging on to convicts for 300 odd years now.


England didn't win the Ashes, mind. We lost them. The reasons?

1) Not being able to bowl out England's tail at Cardiff in a test we fucking dominated (Hauritz in particular. Warne would have wrapped that up in minutes)
2) Poor batting, mostly evident in that test.
3) Selection blunders, namely Hussey, who made a pointless ton and is only there because there's no alternative, and the Clark/Lee/Siddle/Hauritz crap.
4) Poor bowling. Watson is meant to be an "all-rounder" but was useless with the ball. Johnson was poor until late in the third test. No pressure built at crucial stages.
5) Poor captaincy, like I need to go into it.
6) Flintoff's spell at Lord's
7) Broad's spell at The Oval. Two bowlers who did little else in the series.

You break that down we lost the Ashes because: we couldn't bowl them out in Cardiff, Flintoff at Lord's and Broad at the Oval.

^ agreed.

Look, I agree we do give as good as we get, and I mentioned in the post that that was the case, but the bashing aboriginals stuff is not on

You say that as if I've been paying any attention at all. It's rugby season - I didn't even watch a full session of the Ashes, let alone keep track of New Zealand's woeful cricketing fortunes.

Well, to make it fair, you can hold me to a ridiculously premature prediction of the series being drawn.

I think it's funny , and then some are coming out and saying we should have played Horridz. Yeah, let's let England score another 100 runs per innings.

Lol @ us. I reckon it's awesome! Though it is sad that we lost to THAT bowling line-up of Swann, Broad and them other hacks, and ONIONS wasn't even playing!
