    The 3rd Ashes Test

    At 136-2 I was seriously p e e d off,it should never have got to that........if we’d been more disciplined they’d have struggled to get 120.

    These Ashes depend on Friday’s first innings for us I believe.

    I don’t expect we’ll get more than 230-250 but if we could get 300-350 I think we’d not only win this match but also win the series.

    Just as well for them that Anderson has been missing because with him and Archer and Broad we would’ve destroyed them.

    Gloomy, overcast conditions today so an excellent toss to win. The weather is now set fair for the rest of this test so our batsmen ought to do the business. I feel the Gods are on our side for this one.

    Oh dear. 130-150 looks more likely.

    I know Roy is not an opener, Surrey and cricinfo also know it why don't England selectors?

    I’m sick of hearing about the batting order.

    It’s irrelevant......most of them are not good enough.

    Root has been pathetic,no doubt it’ll be all down to “batting at three”.

    This is the worst batting line up at test level since I started watching in 1972.

    You could put them in any order and it’d make no difference.

    6 down for 45 utter shambles. If Root can't win this test after our bowlers shoved it up em yesterday than he really ought to resign.

    We might as well reverse the batting order!

    We need to find some “stodgy” batsman like David Steele from the 70’s however boring he might be.

    I’d even consider throwing the bat right at the start with “pinch hitters” than watch this s h I t.

    Foakes has to play next match.

    Just not good enough! Yes, the Aussies have bowled superbly but there is no excuse for some of the dismissals. What was Stokes doing playing at a ball that wouldn't have hit the proverbial 'barn door'. Why didn't Roy just shoulder arms instead of playing it? I could go on. I can't see us saving this game let alone winning it. Archer's now out, ducking a short one but with his bat standing up like a periscope. I give up!

    When I went to lunch we were 2 down couldn't believe the Aussies were in when I got back. Where's me bat?
