      Well I'm all in now mate..

      Stand to lose 80 or win 210 depending on today..

      Nice one PD!

      I think there's no chance our top wicket taker will be anyone other than Harris or Johnson but Harris may be rested for Adelaide so i'd have gone for Johnson.

      Aussies 1-0 in the series. 300 run win. Too, too easy.

      Well done Aussies

      England got a lot of work to do before the second test.

      Not too comfortable with how The Aussies conducted themselves in the last half hour there, no need for it.

      Hoping for a great series

      I turned off by then  ;D

      What did they do?

      I know Mitch Johnson's a jumped up little c*nt, wouldn't surprise me if he was involved with this kind of conduct. Classless w@nker.

      They were all into Anderson, don't get me wrong I like tough cricket but it seemed a little unsavory.. Clarke seemed a little too much and some foreign commentators were saying stuff was being thrown around about hurting him, breaking fingers and over bumping his head.. Off the stump mike

      I like funny sledging, not too keen on telling players you're gonna hurt them.. Especially when you are so dominant.

      Just seen that Clarke was telling Anderson they were gonna break his arm..

      Now I actually love Aussie cricket, I love the ashes, I grew up with the great Aussie side and couldn't help but love them and have followed their cricket all my life as I do with England. Cricket is a hard sport but there is a line and telling a no.11 that you're gonna break his arm when you have a near on 400 lead?
      I've lost a lot of respect for Pup there.

      Win and win well.. Smashing England by that many was enough of a statement, tell them you are gonna do it again and again, I even like the bit where Warner was taking the piss out of Trott's bottle to the short stuff but threatening to break a no.11s arm at that point?

      Take a look in the mirror pup


      The Aussies were great in this match, fully fully deserved win. Well in lads

      Great start from Australia - dismal start from England.  Probably the best result to set up a cracking series.

      Poor sledging from the Aussies though.  It's one thing giving that kind of verbals to the openers but shows a bit of an inferiority complex doing it to a tail-ender when your about to romp home with the win.  All smacks of a lack of class.

      Great win Aussies.

      Smashing bet PD. Glad you're in the money.

      As for me, turned off the telly at the 2nd rain delay thinking they're not coming back on. Some 5 hours later find out they did and we won.  :-[

      Think Broad has been the only highlight for England so far, bowling wise anyway.

      Fair play to the Aussies, they were in full control from the toss. Hopefully England can put it right and the Aussies get sloppy.

      Just a shame they have lacked class so far.

      England need to get used to the extra bounce in the pitches over there, they really look to be struggling and lacking conviction in shots when the field is up to Lyon..

      Stop trying to show how big your dick is and take on the short ball, sway out the way, let them get bored with no success and force them to pitch it up.

      Pressure was the key to a few of the wickets, but it was self forced.

      Johnson bowled great but could go either way next test,Harris always does.. Siddle is line and length, just get used to the slight extra bounce off a length.. The fact Lyon out bowled Swann is a worry..

      The kookaburra doesn't swing, so Jimmy needs to pull his length back a little and make it get a little steeper.. Tremlett worries me, he has lost 5mph and is only getting around 80 out of it, not quick enough to worry test batsmen.
      Doesn't surprise me Broad is the best bowler so far, his natural length suits the wickets.

      Mentally our batsmen are fu**ed currently.. Trott is really struggling and walking to the off side to get away from the ball leaving his weight off balance and not getting through his shots.. KP is trying to dominate the bowlers as usual and not getting in before he does, not really playing the ball on merit.
      Cook will be fine, Carberry the jury is out.. Played nicely first dig and was unlucky second. Prior's head isn't right, is so desperate to make runs that he wants to hit everything no matter the match situation, to get out leg slip to Lyon twice in a match is embarrassing for him.


      Lots to work on.

      I tend to look past the behaviour our team showed when we were copping a lot of sh*t from the British media last series. Warner was hammered by the press, Watson, Johnson, Lyon, all copped a hammering. And three of those four won us this match.

      Yeah the words were definitely over the top but meh. It's the Ashes. I wouldn't complain if the shoe was on the other foot.

      The media are cu*ts we all know that..

      I'd think it was utterly out of order if it was our bowlers telling Lyon they were gonna break his arm Crouchie.

      No need for that for me

      Trott to return home due to stress related illness

      Jonathan Trott: England batsman leaves Ashes tour of Australia
      England's Jonathan Trott has left the Ashes tour of Australia because of a long-standing stress-related condition.

      Batsman Trott scored 19 runs in two innings during England's first Test defeat and struggled against the bowling of Mitchell Johnson.

      "I don't think it is right that I'm playing knowing that I'm not 100%," said the 32-year-old.

      England coach Andy Flower added: "He needs time away from this environment and time with his family."

      The tourists will play an Australian Chairman's XI over two days from Friday, before the second Test in Adelaide on 5 December.

      Trott scored 10 and 9 in two innings as England suffered a 381-run defeat in the first Test at the Gabba in Brisbane.

      "I cannot currently operate at the level I have done in the past," he added.

      "My priority now is to take a break from cricket so that I can focus on my recovery."

      The displays of England's batsmen were branded "poor and weak" by Australia's David Warner after the opening Test.

      England captain Alastair Cook labelled the comments "disrespectful," a view shared by Flower who says Warner's views had no impact on Trott's decision to leave.

      "Jonathan has been struggling with this condition for quite a while," added Flower.

      "We have been on tour for about a month and he has had his ups and downs through that month and it is not directly related to that.

      "I would also say players commenting to fellow professionals in the media is disrespectful and I think on this occasion he [Warner] has got that horribly wrong."

      That could be the end of Trotts career..
      I say could, and I really rate the fella, hope he gets his head together for himself and his family

      I see Clarke had been fined for his "sledge" at Anderson..

      Any of the Aussies over there, what's Melbourne playing like?

      Adelaide is a bit slower and lower by the sounds of things..
      Perth will be like Brisbane..
      Sydney will spin more ..

      England need to bounce back at Adelaide and if they do it could come down to Melbourne, if they lose it could well be 4-1.

      Bell will probably bat 3 which will mean pressure for him

      Agreed. The Aussie's (in cricket only IMO) don't know how to win gracefully, expect more thuggery and slurs thrown England's way. They're under the burden of underachieving in comparison to their great sides in their past, they're excess intimidation & thuggery (worked) is a means to justify their desperate ends.

      Shocking first Test.

      Need to sort it out for the second both with bat and ball.

      One thing that is certain is that the review system hasn't come into question so far unlike the Ashes over here during the summer.

      Hi mate, don't know what the rest of the country is looking like but the weather here is beautiful at the moment, should be a typical MCG pitch nice and bouncy with some spin the last couple of takes coming into effect.  I always said on the MCG pitch that a score of around 350 is a good one, anything after that is a bonus.

      This.

      Fellas, it's the Ashes. Someone coming out and saying their opposition were weak is hardly anything to boil over. Warner was the scapegoat of the British press and now he has a ton under his name he gets bombarded by bullshit again.

      If we lost and said derogatory things about England we'd be laughed at and the same treatment would be thrown our way that we have been saying about England. It's true because that's what happened a few months ago.
