    Easy Tiger, we haven't won this yet - I would love us to be batting this first innings into day 3, really grinding these Aussies cunts into the ground. Our bowlers need a nice long rest from their 18 over exertions today

    He made this call and was right.

    To be fair no one would have predicted this level of fuck uppery

    I love Ryan and I love how he never fails to stick his neck out in cricket threads...he just doesn't always get it right...

    More importantly, this has to be the worst Australian team to tour England in more than 30 years. The 85 team was poor but this shower are even worse.

    Before he changed his original post he was spouting his usual win the toss win the game nonsense as he thought Clarke had won the toss and decided to bat!

    He was and I saw it as well. I can't be arsed with getting into an argument with him about about it. My wife is an Aussie (I've been keeping a strategic silence around her) and I've been yarning away to my Aussie family and friends all day. All of whom took the whipping in good humour as I knew they would. Brilliant day for England. Tragic for the Aussies. Clarke's a gonner!

    I'm quite lost for words JJ! I think we just saw a day that will live long in the 130+yrs of cricket history! They were on about Jim Laker FFS! What a day!

    Just watched the highlights again on channel 5. The bowling from Broad was sublime. They say he's a 'streaky bowler' - what a time to find your groove. @Ryan thoughts? I'm not being a dick about this - I'm just interested. My Aussie buds are hating Clarke at the moment!

    Well, I predicted Broad would run riot and there'd be fireworks first up, so your timing's not the best lefty. Besides, I didn't see any of you lot predicting a 3-1 win to England in this series. At least I had the temerity to make a call, it's easy to be all high and mighty in hindsight.


    That's incorrect, and you know it. In my original post I wrote that Australia had won the toss, which is what I'd read on twitter as I was waiting from my fucking stream of the action to stop buffering. I edited it as soon as the vision came on.

    And then proceeded to say it was the right decision, and that England would run riot. Which happened.

    But anyway, the action itself... I went to bed after Australia's innings, so pretty much 3 minutes or so after a first ball was bowled. I don't think I've ever seen anything like that. As good as Broad was, and my word he was good, Australia were worse. A collapse as unlikely as you'll ever see. Every single one of them. Prodding at things, reaching for stuff, shit footwork, playing across the line, and looking back at the deliveries i think there was only 1 or maybe 2 of them that was actually going at the stumps.

    Incredible, and if you play that bad then you don't deserve to win anything. But credit to Cook for the decision to bowl, and to Broad for that spell. In one half hour he won the Ashes. That's big-game bowling.

    Good for you! The Aussies were rubbish in pretty much every facet of the game.

    This innings will affect Aussie cricket for years.

    Hvae to say that in the circumstances at 34-2 that Joe Root innings was absolutely sublime, almost as if he was playing a different game to everyone else in tricky conditions. Fantastic batting.

    I actually think Ryan has given some good insight into the Aussie team, there are players i've never heard of that he's given the low down on.

    I'm still confused by the Aussie decision to lose a seamer. Such a big call and one that I think will lose them the Ashes today.

    I think everyone is TBH. It's as though there was no thought as to how they'd bowl England out if England weren't miles behind as they were at Lords; i think they were gambling on the batting line up getting 400+ which was a big shout given the conditions and the Edgbaston performance! Johnson and Starc are good bowlers but seem to lose their radar if they're asked to bowl anything more than a 4 over spell which they can't really do now with just the 4 man attack
