1 question: How the F**K can you lose a game from where the poms did? It was a gutsy move to declare with only 550 on the board. I wouldn't have done it, but it seemed like it paid off when JL was out cheaply that arvo. However the only way England were going to win is if they only had to bat once (or maybe for a bit on the last afternoon). After we avoided the follow on, we were never really going to lose. But that's no excuse for capitulating. All the poms are willing to talk up how much mentally tougher their team is these days ...... can't see it myself.

Let's face it, Australia still has a better team, both mentally and physically.... but especially mentally.

sorry to gloat, but that's how i see it

Shane Warne can easily make a batting team crumble. Once Pieterson was out for 2 England were in huge trouble. Last day always is unexpected-the pitch has huge holes made by the bowlers over the last 4 days and with the uneven bounce and Warne's turn you can't rule anything out. Reminds me of Trent Bridge last year.

i think the country is divided:
half are saying "stop gloating, we won last time, so nah nah" trying to deflect criticism
the other half are like "'ere we go again, we suck so bad, our guys just fluked it last time and now we're bottom of the pile again"

One wag in England thinks they should give back the gongs the Queen gave them for the last effort While they're at it they should strip away those farcical knighthoods from the actors and singers... what a bloody joke that is.
