Nice for England to win one occasionally tongue.gif
The Aussies will no doubt be fit to be tied next time they meet the Nigels.

They'll wait until the end of next season and then knight Sir Harry for services to sticking it up the Gooners, who are now without doubt a selling club!

You should have said. I watched it here. . http://ashes2009live.blogspot.com/2009/07/...ia-live_09.html


Have it live on a big screen,Sky 1,but couldnt sit watching that all day.
May watch a brief re-run of the lovely sound of falling Australian timber a little later.

Prefer to get on with other things, and just keep checking the text commentary which is far more entertaining, as its mixed in with a constant flood of hillarious texts, mostly taking the waters from our good friends down under,...speaking of which,...looking forward to see what R.H.has to say,...hope he hasnt fallen out of his boat... wink.gif

I have to say, Warnie is a superb commentator. Very astute in his commentary on Hauritz and Swann in particular for obvious reasons, but so revealing in the methodology of working out a batsman's weakness and suckering him in over the course of several overs. Better still, he gives great anecdotes from behind the scenes, albeit possibly too revealing for Punter and some of the recently retired Aussie's liking. His observations yesterday about how modern cricketers are overly professional wimps who need to drink more was brilliant, particularly his point about only using the ice bath to keep his beer cold.

By the way, this Mitchell Johnson is shithouse. He's certainly not the new left arm messiah, more like a very naughty boy (who can bat a bit).

Spratty, thanks for your concern laugh.gif

We lost, shit happens... on to the next test.

BTW I was surprised that it has taken you so long to actually beat us at Lords. It must feel good to finally take advantage of your home ground advantage wink.gif

Yes,I like Warnie,real good crack,speaks his mind.
Wonder why I get the distinct impression that he much prefers the British scene and the beer to down under... wink.gif

Told you people!!! I should have put a wager!!
The Aussies are human again and now they should come back to Earth!! The pace attack which England has should rattle the Aussies up in Edgbaston. I remember the Ashes when England brought it home, to the place where it belongs, where a four pronged attack just whittles the Aussies.

Where are the Aussie army!! and what about the talk of snatching defeat from Victory!!

Not quite correct conboy,
Just happens to be the first time on this particular ground in 75 years.
Its played every second year over a series of 5 games, on various grounds.
Every second year the venue switches between Australia and England.
This particular ground is looked upon as the home of cricket and so has slightly greater significance.
Over approx.130 years I think, till the present time there have been various periods of dominance by both sides.
Overall I think the Aussies are just slightly ahead in series wins.
England won the last series at home four year ago but were well beaten down under two year back.
Australia have been considered World champions for the last few years.

Hope thats some help conboy.

There are also other shorter competitions and versions of the game involving the various cricketing nations.

The question now is,...
Are the Aussies dreams turning to Ashes, as Andy and Onions,(certainly knows his onions),cut thru the Aussie batting order like a knife thru hot butter?
