Agree with all that. A lesser factor is that the Aussies are always fired up. Oh for a tiny part of that in our ranks. One or two players cannot carry the team. Dead Wood has to go this winter.

Didn't realise his injuries were that bad.

I've been stitched up, m'lud :D.

He has to stay fit and stay.

That hit to the head has Broady malfunctioning. Suddenly thinks he can bat now. :moo:

Oh look, feral sandpaper tw@t couldn't resist opening his big ugly gob :D

Wonder if anyone will retire halfway through the series like Graeme Swann did?

0-5 against this Aussie team will go down as the worst tour in English cricket history.

Woke up to see Malan and Root has got us to 150-2. Went back for a snooze. Got up again and see itís 220-9. Astonishing, abysmal, dog shit. Yet completely expected.

Silverwood and Root canít survive this. Can they?

Root is such a poor captain. He just has nothing about him.

Didn't we lose 5-0 last time in Australia seems to be par for the course!

We don't have the mental toughness or quality to compete against the top teams.

Silverwood is cricket's version of Steve Sherwood.

Root needs a captain to take the weight off his shoulders, much like Mike Brearley did for Ian Botham. I have no idea who this captain might be, given the paucity of County Cricket. Oh for a Mike Brearley now.


Edit: Brain-fade. I meant Tim. Cheers, Worksop

But he is the only senior player guaranteed a place in the team. Stokes I guess is an option but not sure he is captain material. Too injury prone, a bit hot headed and I suspect on a downwards curve

davech 18-12-2021 10:17 AM

Follow-on? (I don't what the weather has in store). But can they bowl us out again.....? You bet they can :(

art malice 18-12-2021 10:18 AM

Graham Thorpe needs some one-on-one batting coaching with his line manager

The old joke used to be England pick 10 players and then a captain. The Aussies pick 11 and make the best one captain.

Do we have a captain out there with a bit of nous, who can score more runs than, say, Burns?

davech 18-12-2021 10:23 AM

Here they go! They want to grind us into the dirt, don't they?

Prince Phillip 18-12-2021 10:26 AM

Not wishing to make light of a serious subject, but can certainly see Buttler being released home. He's really got the thousand yard stare now.

That's what Mike Atherton would do to the ball ....

Where is a Mike Atherton when you need one?

0-5 is regular but this is not a great Aussie team by any stretch.

Biggest indictment for me is how they can have half a bowling attack missing and still look frightening. Anderson and Broad with 1100 wickets under their belt come in under helpful conditions but for Aussie bats it looks like a serene summer day at the beach with wine and caviar on tap. No trauma out there for them.
