      Watched the full 90 minutes of the west brom game and then the full days play from perth. Is there any therapy available?

      My God that was sh*t from the England bowlers, its bloody embarassing to only get 1 wicket in a whole days play even if you were bowling to completely negative ultra defensive players which they weren't!
      Whitewash here we come unless Australia get bored in the 4th or 5th test.

      Lucky that the Aussies are still batting away then. Christ knows why?

      Smith does seem quite cautious as a captain

      On replay looks like the cracks in the pitch did a lot of work there. Either way 🤷🏽‍♂️😂

      Also I would edit my original post but the iPhone isn’t letting me so hence the thread spam.

      At the end of the day the real urn stays in London so nerrr.

      Seriously though even with that mega partnership we have vhance to skittle the Aussies this morning and if we had we'd be 4 down and near parity now. Instead we're looking at an innings defeat.

      Ou just know this will be over by Lunch tomorrow.

      To be honest i'm not sure how they can call this a sporting contest anymore then if ots as bad as what is being said and the Aussies would have messed this up for themselves if they did go off.

      Congratulations Australia.  Much the better side.

      England's bowlers fairly woeful on flat lifeless pitches.  The batting hasn't been great principally because Cook is finished and they gave Root the burden of captaincy too early but I don't think batting was the major problem.

      England's bowlers are conditioned for pitches and conditions with something in them and this kind of stuff is totally unsuited.  They never look capable of taking 20 wickets in 2 and a half days and if you can't get the wickets then you have no chance.

      Well played - can't see past another 5-0 here. 

      Cheers England - you've ruined a lot of us fellas excuses as to why we have to watch tele for 5 days after Christmas! Nice one.

      Oh well, move in to Melbourne and go again, the Australian bowling and steve smith have been the difference,  hope England don't sacrifice young mason crane just for the sake of it, time for broad, cook, root etc to lead by example

      Cook doesn't look as interested any more, hes certainly stikl young enough to do it, but is he hungry enough anymore?

      Yeah it's been a poor bowling performance really but again its all in the conditions. The batting has collapsed a few times in traditional English style and the tail has been blown away every time.

      This is looking like a 5-0 and a few of the established names will now be playing for their futures with questions asked of Cook and Broad in particular really.

      Our lack of a top quality spinner and the loss of stokes have also contributed i feel.

      It's a shame for the series but at least I can lie in now between xmas and new year. Well done Australia. Much the better side in the series.

      May as well try some other players now with no pressure on them, every one expects a 5-0 thrashing so you may as well get thrashed trying out some new players because the current team have tried and failed. Cook in particular needs to be binned, he adds zero to the team and its always a bad idea to have an ex captain in the team unless they are exceptional players.

      Yeah usually love sitting up Chrimbo night going into Boxing Day watching the first day's play at MCG. F**k all to play for this time, unless of course we're trying to avoid a whitewash and at the moment that still looks a distinct possibility.

      the Australian bowling and steve smith

      Disagree about the Aussie bowling. It's not been amazing. We've got a poor batting tail and Cook and Root have been poor. New lads have done fairly well.

      England's bowling is the primary cause of failure in this series. We hit 600+ runs in the last test and lost by an innings. That's a failure by bowlers.
