2 down already. 283 behind.

I can see defeat by an innings and 120+.

Just so embarrassing in so many ways.

We have been beaten 5-0 a few times by the Aussies,but this 4-0(will be,when you wake up) is the most humiliating of all.

Every batsman and bowler outplayed and apart from one day,yes just one day in the whole series,the Aussies were the better team every day.

Another innings defeat to add to the collection.
Given the Australians were, and are, barely pushing 'good' that's a pathetic display.

Management, coaching and development all need an overhaul.
How someone like Vince can go out and play the same boneheaded shot to get out over and over again is ridiculous.
And someone should explain to Root that it's not compulsory to get out once a 50 is in the bag.
Which begs the question; why the fuck is Ramprakash, who was never a test quality batsman, batting coach?

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Not a bad guess 8-)

Agree with Nev, overhaul needed.

I'm not sure why our batsmen can't seem to be able to play test match cricket in test matches rather than 20/20 - the Aussies manage to switch between the two no problem!

Jimmy Anderson says "It's not disastrous"... :shock:

I'd like to know what it is them Jim.......No offence Jim think you were OK...
But even then...They had bowlers not as good as you,taking wickets,when you couldn't..

That's what hurts the most,is having your arse's kicked by someone who probably isn't as good
as you are.....that leaves no excuses in my book...

Anderson "we were in every test", is he fucking joking. Other than under the lights, he has bowled, as if he were using a tennis ball. Broad, other than 1 session, has not put the effort in. Ali cant bowl.

The Aussies, definitely knew all of the above. They have set pitches up, that in the main were lifeless, knowing there quicks, would be quick enough and their batsmen, could bat all day.

So, fuck off Anderson, give me my sleep back, you northern monkey

Anderson "we were in every test"


If he thinks that,then we have no chance in the future.

I know we have lost 5-0 a few times,but I can`t remember a Touring Ashes Team to be this bad.

A total disaster. :(

Well, thank fuck Cook and Broad got bang back into form, it saved us from a right embarrassment.

I clearly couldn't have been more wrong about them.
