The Ashes

Postby Woody » Sun Nov 12, 2006 4:42 pm

Only 11 days away now. There may well be some long nights ahead.

Tour has started in predictable fashion, getting mullered in the 3 day tour match going on at the moment too.

Glad to hear that Read has been dropped for Jones though, his experience from last summer has to be more of a benefit to us, and as players there is almost nothing between them in my opinion.

I'm not looking forward to this at all. Its been nice having the ashes for a while, but I can't see us regaining them, unless Warnes arm falls off, and McGraths, and Lee's, and Pontings...it gets depressing cos the list goes on.
Have fun

Can't we just give it them back and save on all the air fares?

I can't see us doing very well unless the bowlers perform to their best and I'm not confident of that happening.

Bell's been declared fit, think he could be the key man of this series to be honest. If he can get over the psychological strangle hold the aussies had over him last year he could well be the man that wins the series for us

Ian Bell is a stupid Princethorpe bumboy.

Lost the toss and they're batting. I'm off to Rileys - the only place I know which is showing it! Although can't see me staying up past about 3am. Got lectures in the morning :(
