At least we're used to England being crap, with a few glimpses of the promised land.

Watching this Australian side must be tough for their fans.

art malice 10-12-2021 12:28 AM

Why is it tough for us to watch our team?

Not you Bones. You enjoy watching Australia even when they lose to England.

I imagine for most it must be like watching Liverpool for the 25 years after we beat them at Villa Park

Because youíre far from the best team in test cricket.

A lead of 250 and above and we will lose by an innings

Itís not pleasant watching us lose but if the cricket is great then so be it. The series where Flintoff and co went ballistic was absolutely captivating cricket, as well as the contest between players. Hated losing but loved watching it.

Fair play Bonesy. But, as ever for us, success is not sustained. Great as those Ashes were, we get whitewashed the one after.

And Stokesís Headingley heroics, which unlike anything else iíd ever seen physically made me shake towards the end, was followed by defeat at Old Trafford and the Ashes lost.

Whereas you bastards used to just steamroller on like gum-chewing, sledging robots.

Not this lot though. They might win this series then lose to New Zealand

Ok fair enough. Thanks for your detailed answer. Quality.
We might be a fraction in front of your lot though, which is always a good thing.

I enjoy watching new talent like Harris, Green, Carey and Head. Sometimes youíve got to be patient and have a look at what the future might hold with some of these guys.

We might not be the best but weíre a long way further forward than a few years ago. We donít have to be the best for me to enjoy watching test cricket. If itís a good contest or some players are performing at a really high level Iím in.

Bones14 10-12-2021 01:08 AM

Gum chewing sledging robots. Brilliant, I love it.

We can play some decent cricket on our own turf to.

The Gabba must be the only cricket ground in the world with an adult shop across the road from it.

Aggers’ll know

Obviously purchased some larger anal beads after getting reamed yesterday

Makes a change from some hardcore Vaughan

Exactly how cricket should be

Worksop Palace 10-12-2021 01:18 AM

What sort of crowds are attending ? I know it’s a big ground but looks very sparse

Agreed. To much emphasis on the shorter versions nowadays sadly. The battles in that series were quite simply incredible. It still sticks with me to this day. Greatest series Iíve bore witness to. Shitty result but still amazing.
