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.

Not really bothered by myself and yeah England are utter shit at it lol

If the Aussies ever got good at football now that might be annoying.

And fair play in terms of your answer, I think thatís exactly what sport should be about :)

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 I’ve bore witness to. Shitty result but still amazing.

Warne doesn’t shell that total dolly off Pietersen on 15 at the Oval you’d have won.

We needed it more than you though.

Havenít looked but Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide will allow capacity as it stands now. If Tasmania gets the 5th test which I believe they will, theyíll put a limit of 10000 from what Iím hearing.

It’s a shame as England are so crap it will be a boring Ashes.

art malice 10-12-2021 01:26 AM

Test in Tasmania wow. Hope that happens

cockneyrebel 10-12-2021 01:28 AM

I imagine the last couple of batsman will just whack it around. Then wrap it up by the end of today in all likelihood.

Tests over in three days aren’t up to much.

PauLo 10-12-2021 01:29 AM

Yeah, Iím done. Congrats on your opening test win, Australia.

This is like watching Palace under Hodgson. A couple of good players and shit tonne of average.

Unless itís you whoís winning them.

cockneyrebel 10-12-2021 01:30 AM

It’s just boring to be honest. It’s like watching a premiership team playing someone from league one.

Even then itís not up to much. Winning a tightly fought game is more satisfying and better to watch. Although yeah you would rather be an Aussie supporter right now :D

Football. Weíve got some pretty decent talent but tbh itís not our number one game compared to you guys.
Itís a fair way behind AFL, cricket and rugby league.
Itíd be great though if we did get really good and gave you guys a kicking. Would laugh my arse off personally.

Yeah itís the only game England really cares about so if you did England over then it would mean a lot of bragging. Canít see it happening.

cockneyrebel 10-12-2021 01:37 AM

Aussies not even caring if Lyons is on strike now.

Bones14 10-12-2021 01:38 AM

Not with your team at the moment. You got some pretty impressive young talent playing and some real quality backing them up. You just got to win a trophy with this group as it could be another 30 years before you have this much talent and an opportunity for success.

art malice 10-12-2021 01:39 AM

Burns doesn’t drop one though.

As Dan ‘knobhead’ Knorcross would say, ‘is that the turning point’?

Bones14 10-12-2021 01:42 AM

Montgomery Burns.
He’s had a mare the poor fellow.

Great 150 by T. Head. Wonderful innings. Well done young man.

greybot 10-12-2021 02:54 AM

Burns playing like he's picked up a bat for the first time. All over the place.
