Now then Ray - can we use this thread for a little friendly banter (it will be friendly while we're winning)?

We're off form ATM for sure but never count us out of the ashes. Punter's due for a good test.

This partnership is vital, if they can play for an hour or so after lunch then I think we can push on to a decent score.

If the convicts get an early wicket after lunch we will be under a lot of pressure.

Yes depending on these two , seeing off the next 15/20mins . Otherwise the nerves will take over and slow the rate down . Nobody wants to lose the 1st wicket of their 1st innings for cheap runs Like the captain has just done . With Morgan snniffing down the necks .

This is why England will lose the Ashes. Our batting line-up is just too brittle.

Timboi Posted on 25/11/2010 04:50
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

My folks were English and they went back to blighty wehn I was 12.

I lived down south (it gets worse, eh?) but I decided to go to uni up north. Lived in the halls of residence on Linny Rd and used to hear the singing coming down from Ayresome Pk and I liked it.
That was during the Robbo resurgence period and I grew to like the Boro over the years I was living in the town - a team from a small town come good - a bit of an underdog.

Never actually made it to a match unfortuantely (being a tudent, all my money was sepnt on other things) but used to listen to all the matches on Century and when they were on TV.

I'm not sure when I became an actual Boro supporter but I am now - although as I imagine everyone feel, it's not an easy task ATM. [smi]

That's the short story, anyway.

I did manage to watch Boro last year away to Fulham. I believe that was close to the start of the mighty fall so not a great experience but I loved it - actually seeing the lads in person, playing on the pitch was quite surreal for me.
I was seated in the neutral area and was getting a bit excited; I was getting a few strange looks from the blanky brigade (who seems to have me surrounded).

Big trouble now ,hope the bowlers can pull a few rabbits out the bag with the bat .[^] .

Well maybe it's not as flat a wicket as people were making out, pitch it up at pace and you get wickets.

Somehow or other they got to scrape 300 out of this.

Tim what a goodlife you appear to have had . Somebody thats seen a fair bit in a short space of time with referance to moving around , and a level headed lad you sound . The Boro have a fair few ex-pats in Oz . Ive close friend of the family in Perth and says she will never come back . A lot say the same thing . One day i hope to get over . Always wanted to visit , but one thing or another never got around to it . Good on you supporting the Boro from far afield . A student life un Boro , bet you have some tails to tell .[^] I think we will have you batting tonight at this rate .

Mornin' Ray,

How are you? All as well as we are here, I hope.

Just got up and put Sky on. That England scorecard after winning the toss is very unflattering, to say the least, and an unexpected battering by Siddle. A hat-trick FFS.

Still they have to bat on this surface, but it won't be until tomorrow, and hopefully we can reach 300.

hewielewie Posted on 25/11/2010 06:33

I know it looks dire but I wouldnt be too worried. Dinger is showing how bad the Oz bowling really is. Siddle is on a promise from his sister tonight as its his birthday so he is playing out of his skin. He wont be like this for 5 matches

I actually don't think England were doing too bad, they had them on the back foot for a while earlier and with a bit of luck, would have at least 1 wicket if not both.

They seem to have ridden it out well mind now we really need to break this up and look for some momentum.

I was totally surprised that the Assie's scorecard when I got up this morning. Getting Ponting out early was masterly but we must remove Hussey on 81.

Monty won't play until maybe Sydney barring injuries of course.

Swann has to stay in the side so Monty only plays where we might fancy two spinners, only Sydney really offers enough spin for that.

You're correct offside, but I do trust both these two umpires, Dar and Doctrove, and we all make mistakes.

I hope the luck balances itself over the series, but to be fair The Gabba was always going to be the toughest test for us.

Can't believe the not-out given by Dar on Hussey. Sure, he heard 2 noises, but the first rule of an umpire is not to go on noise but to go on what you see with your eyes. if it had been an inside edge, the ball would have deflected towards Hussey. Instead, because it hit both pads, it actually deflected away from him, so in the opposite direction...

I think that the only reason he gave it not-out was because he had a decision overturned a couple of minutes earlier and wasn't confident so chickened out.

Whatever the reason, it was a rank, rank bad decision which could cost us this test match.

Sea_Harrier Posted on 27/11/2010 02:40
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

My dilemma is whether to go to bed now, or stay up.

There's not much possibility that were going to shift this pair any time soon and the level of excitement is low.

However, if I do decide to walk the wooden hill to bed then something will surely happen, as it invariably does, and I'll wish I'd stayed up.

I used to be so indecisive, but I'm not so sure now.[:D]

offside-again Posted on 27/11/2010 02:52
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Yeh Dar is usually an excellent umpire, along with Taufel he is the best, surprised he never got that one right, just not our day, Aus are 1.37 to win this now and that looks about right we have it all to do to avoid defeat now. [:(]

TurnbullsCans Posted on 27/11/2010 02:54

I am thinking the same, SH but if we can shift one of these two, you never know when the new man comes in.

This match is turning into a joke - England could have had 5/6 wickets easily with luck, if not more.

Sea_Harrier Posted on 27/11/2010 03:06
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Why isn't Jimmy trying something different?

A beamer or two to entice the hook, or a couple into the block hole might bring a result. He's concentrating on line and length orders from the management I suppose.

There's two Aussie centurions at the crease, the partnership looks unbreakable and could possibly continue to Christmas Day without either breaking sweat.

Well really we may as well have these two bat on and on, then hope for a bit of weather and some decent batting for 5 sessions could sneak us a draw, very unlikely but you never know, we can't win it now though that is for sure.

TurnbullsCans Posted on 27/11/2010 03:30

[^] Assumed you had gone to bed fella.

We desperately need to break these 2, we have gone from being all over them to being owned by them. Need to be more aggressive and get stuck in. WE seem to be lying down a bit really..

DagenhamFox Posted on 27/11/2010 03:46
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Morning lads, so bored with the cricket I thought I would see if any Boro boys are up and posting. There's a few Leicester Roofers that speak highly of your board.

I haven't felt this let down for a few years, probably 4 years ago. We started so well today but haven't had any luck all game and any belief has now disappeared from all our bowlers.

offside-again Posted on 27/11/2010 03:49
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

It's a strange one TBH, because this pitch looks a doddle to bat on now, it's totally a new ball wicket once that goes it's hard work, the other thing is Swann has done nothing, usually when the new ball goes and you have a quality spinner that's how you get them out, but he is just not looking a threat the ball is sitting up nicely for them to hit, in England Swann gets a bit more zip off the pitches, over here it does not seem he is going to be as much of a threat as we assumed. [|)]

Very disappointing really, we had them 143/5 FFS !

Don't know why, we have gone from being right at them to being dominated by them. Absolutely every shread of luck has been with the Aussies, harsh on England but we need to pick ourselves up and go again. Heads have dropped.

Catch down as I type this. Bad times.

Welcome though [^]

DagenhamFox Posted on 27/11/2010 03:53
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Yeah I agree and missed catches like that don't help! That one was shocking.

Swann may be the best spinner in the world right now but if the pitch doesn't offer anything he needs to change something to try to make it happen. He hasn't done that IMO.

TurnbullsCans Posted on 27/11/2010 03:55
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

In danger of becoming an embarassment this I'm afraid lads. Abysmal day for England so far, potentially made worse if Anderson is injured.

On the plus side, these late night Ashes threads have been the best on the board for a while [^]

offside-again Posted on 27/11/2010 04:00
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Yep looking pretty grim I'm afraid fellas, could be an innings defeat even, but they must not get too down on themselves luck has played a blinder for the convicts. [ref]

We'll bounce back, no doubt. [8D]

Yeh this thread has been most enjoyable have to agree there..

They won't do it but it could be an idea to play 5 bowlers, Prior can bat at number 6, then bring in either Shazad or Tremlett, who can both bat a bit anyway.

DagenhamFox Posted on 27/11/2010 04:01
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

and we're only half way through the test match. We won't be able to bat out a draw either, there's too much time left for that.

I always felt one of the Aussie batsmen would get a ton but as the wickets fell 24 hours ago that looked less likely. Even this morning, I felt had we got the breakthrough we would have gone on to take the rest quickly such was the quality of our bowling.

Now, I reckon these two will be in all day and they will declare about 250 in front.

Gutted.

TurnbullsCans Posted on 27/11/2010 04:04
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

The danger for me is that because we get off to a bad start and lose this test, we go downhill from here.

A massive mental battle is now on the cards for us, we will be on the way down, the Aussies on the way up. We might need to write this off and regroup and but being able to do that will be crucial.

Unfortunately the English mentality is shyte at that.

DagenhamFox Posted on 27/11/2010 04:12
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

The close game as it was certainly offers a different proposition to us being hammered as it is now. The second test is next weekend so at least we go straight into it being able to make amends for this defeat, and I think that stands us in good stead. If we had to play another tour match in-between, I think that would have been worse as any backlash would be given to the regional team and not the test team.

TurnbullsCans Posted on 27/11/2010 04:28

Very pleasant surprise this morning. Sounds like a great fighting performance. Lets hope we can have a similar performace tonight.

Sea_Harrier Posted on 28/11/2010 07:12
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Can we bat for most of the 3 sessions tomorrow and get a possible, but probably undeserved, draw?

I sincerely hope so, as this would really dent the Aussies confidence and pride going into the second game of the Test series.

Yeah we've played very well today mate [:D].

I didn't go yesterday mate it was my mates sons birthday party at night and he didn't want to risk not getting back for it due to the snow,which i can understand [^] he takes me all over the country so i missed [cr].

Sea_Harrier Posted on 28/11/2010 07:15

Ray, you missed a classic 70s game. It took me back to when games were played whatever the weather. We couldn't see the South Stand from the North at one stage early in the game. Badly timed slide tackles, ball skidding across the icy surface, and players making daft mistakes because of the conditions. In all I thoroughly enjoyed it.[:D]

It was the sort of game that could have ended 4 - 4.

Dont forget also they have to knock off whatever England score so that also eats into the sessions [^].

Undeserved?

I've just watched the highlights, and they batted brilliantly. Apart from Johnson dropping one, and a couple of misfields resulting in singles, we hardly gave them a chance.

Great batting display,although they dropped 3 catches.
As they say it swings in round abouts, they had the look day3 us day4.

k_h,

That would seem to be the plan.

A 300 lead after the first session would ensure a draw, which would be a fantastic turnaround for us. However, it would give our bowlers an incentive to go for the unlikely win.

I think I would like to see us put them into bat just before tea and see if we can take a few wickets with the new ball.

That would really rub their noses in the dirt. Especially with them only taking one wicket in two days (so far).

The Aussie newspapers would make our job easier with the critism they will receive. [;)]

I would give it 15-20 overs. Demoralize the bowlers further. Pile on some runs, stick them in and try and ruffle some feathers with Finn and Broad aiming at Aussie heads!

Sea_Harrier Posted on 29/11/2010 02:44
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Declaring at 280 should be enough to go for the win, especially if we take the extra half hour.

Say 50 overs plus the extra 6 overs in the half hour should see a close finish and the chance of a win. We can't lose this one now.
