terrible, the bigger question is why have we become so use less? I still think the last series flattered us greatly aided by the weather, but this is shocking.

Struth ! What a shambles.

I could smash Shane Watson back over his head with a brush handle off the edge.

Crikey ! A five test series against Scotland is not far around the corner

I'm going out to cut the grass even though it's 34C. I only cut it yesterday.

We are going to get absolutely trounced in this game.

In hindsight possibly not the best time to blood three new players when the Aussies confidence is so high and we are playing them in their own backyard.

Also some of the field placings and the players who seem to be making them is very strange. Perhaps it's time for an overhaul?

As someone who doesn't know much about Cricket, I thought we had the Ashes last summer and we either won them or retained them?

So why are we playing again? Why not have it once every 2-4 years where we alternate where it's played?

I remember being on holiday last summer and it was going on then. 6 months later and it's STILL going on.

I think it's something to do with The Ashes not being almost immediatetly followed by The Cricket World Cup

Go on then who was the tool that said Ingland would win five nil.

We've had a decent start in more than one Test, but have ended up being trounced. All in all, we've been pretty bloody gutless throughout.
Sadly, we deserve to be whitewashed. :blue:

'Go on then who was the tool that said Ingland would win five nil?'

Ian Botham.
But even at his age, he would be an improvement on this shambles. >:(

I cringed when Warner said a few England players had " scared eyes" but as this series has progressed, I'm starting to think some of your players lack a bit of ticker. I mean, what's with Swann deciding to hang up his boots mid tour? He was playing for his country for Pete's sake! Also I find it hard to believe that Trott didn't know he wasn't 100% before your team left England. He should've made himself unavailable beforehand (this is the 2nd time Trott's had to go home on Australian tours, both times it's been when England has been finding it hard going. Hope you blokes can bounce back for the 2015 Ashes tour of England.

England international cricketers getting 23 for 5 is about 22 more than me and 4 mates would get who haven't played cricket for over 20years.

Just shows what real pressure can do to a player and a team. The Aussies have totally outplayed us on the pitch and mentally. The Aussie bowling has been amazingly accurate and dangerous and our batting has been pathetic apart from Stokes. He and Broad are the only 2 English players who can hold their heads up after a spineless series.
Looking to the future the cupbord is bare. No decent spinners, fast bowlers or proper Test batsmen on the horizon as far as I can see. How the mighty have fallen.:blue:
