Perth has never normally been a happy hunting ground for us..... But this is where it changes and we WILL win the ashes from this test

Tremlett will be a decent replacement for Broad ( although I fancied Bresnan )


Cum on Boys !!!!!

This is not an attempt to be controversial, i have a feeling that Australia will get a result here. Johnson is a good bowler on his day and will come good at least once in this series and may well be this week.
good tactic of theirs sending England to play on a slow low wicket when the next test was to be on the quickest, bounciest wicket in Australia!
Despite what England are saying it must have taken something out of Anderson flying backwards and forwards from Australia and England.

Shame about that late kick-off, the extra 10 hours less sleep over 5 days will probably kill me but if it secures the Ashes it'll be worth it.

Remember - it's part of the masterplan for us. You lot will be feeling quite confident after the last 2 tests - perhaps even a bit cocky.

A perfect time for Australia to actually start playing cricket.

(y'know, it's surprisingly difficult saying this with a straight face)

TC - Perth is 3 hours behind the east coast.

It could be due to the sun rising later but I suspect they're just a bunch of lazy barstewards.

This will be a cracking Test match.

Watch out for:

A Strauss century

Punter gets 130+

Ryan Harris gets a five-fer in England's 1st innings.


But the match all hinges on Mitchell Johnson's performance with the ball.


But keep schtum about it, ok?

Serious comment - wouldn't you guys prefer it if we do win this test?

If you lot win, you've retained the ashes before Xmas and the rest of the series is going to be fairly boring.

I've been looking forward to the ashes but the one-sided disaplys so far have made it far from enjoyable.

I'm hoping a win for us this test, a draw for the next meaning it will all come down to the last test.

joshie Posted on 16/12/2010 00:50
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

No not really, I love the ashes, cant beat playing the aussies but I would prefer to win 4-0, after all you have done it to us far too often in the past.

offside-again Posted on 16/12/2010 00:57
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

I want us to win 4-0 timboi, seen too many heavy defeats in the past..[:(]

Oh go on then 2-1 England, but it will be a joke if we can't even retain the urn from here with Sydney and Swann yet to happen and a 1-0 lead and urrrm the better team, should be certs there(Sydney) so long as it's still a great spinning wicket.

offside-again Posted on 16/12/2010 04:34
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

No chance is that a 4 down at lunch pitch. Swann to bowl later, long tail for Australia pitch flattening out, main danger is obv Hussey, smith looks likely to go any time, be surprised if we don't get em for about 200-225. And to me looks a 350 or so pitch after the new ball, maybe even 400.

Then it should bake and break 4th innings..


But my predictions are rubbish.[8)]

Bukowski Posted on 16/12/2010 04:37
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Hussey appears to have Finn sussed.

Apart from that, it's been a great first session. [^]

offside-again Posted on 16/12/2010 04:40
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Nit picking is that 4 down is just one of those slight 'danger' scorelines but that's been really pedantic as they have a long tail and no top class spinner in the heat, hey I'd have been happy with 2 down at lunch. [smi]

Bukowski Posted on 16/12/2010 04:44
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

The only worry is that Hussey and, to a lesser extent, Haddin have been their form batsmen and could nullify our good start. Hussey still looks in great form and has the upper hand over us.

Really impressed with Tremlett so far. Great start from him. [^]

offside-again Posted on 16/12/2010 04:48
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

It's a good wicket post new ball, so it's great we have Swann for the middle overs as spinners like bounce,, you never know Hussey and Haddin(rod stewart) could rescue it all but we'd still be well in the game you'd think, either way the current 1.85 on Eng is very juicy.

65-4 dream land stuff. Early wicket after lunch and they will fold. We make 400+ from our 1st innings and its game over for aus.

Evening lads. I've finished work early with the next three days off. The fridge's full of beer, me tin's well stocked up and the kids are away so it's me, the couch and the glorious sight of Wicky P's last rites for the next three and a bit days.
Start of post-lunch session. Keep em to less than 250 and it's all ours. Less than 200 and it might be all over before I go back to work...

It's just heat/blisters that kind of thing they will be fine and Strauss would have snapped your hand off for 170 odd for 6 the next three are really poor batters too, so England should go in with momentum, just need to make sure they don't get up around the 300 mark that puts them in the game imo. Barring batting collapse of course.

Disappointed in our bowling tactics towards the end there.

Their tail were allowed to amass far too many runs. Johnson and Siddle got 97 runs between them ffs.

I'm used to the current England team being much more clinical than that.

Well played Oz, good for the series if we're honest....it was always gonna come down to who could get the initiative in the 1st hour, they have and now we must from here on in, be difficult though batting 4th dig on here, in saying that they have no class spinner and Prior and Bell are dangerous.

Interesting game, woke me up that's for sure.


C'mon England, but hey it's about time Johnson actually did something other than open his cake hole the doyle . [8)]

I knew there'd be an aussie fightback in this test. Now we'll see what this england team's really made of. Time for ian bell to step up again and dig us out of a hole.

offside-again Posted on 17/12/2010 04:45
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Right....[:X]. Nice game really, bit of a kick in the nuts but we are in Australia, they got the initiative just at the right time on an abrasive surface. Boring but again the next hour will take it one way or the other really you'd have to say oz from here suddenly favs but you really can't rule England out if they get somewhere over 200 and the Eng bowlers hit the right areas...overall poor stuff from Eng got complacent and paid heavily, we need225-250 range then it's a 50/50 game say.

Overall poor from England though but they at least have the luxury of not losing the series now and have not lost this one yet either, Prior and bell can put on 100+ no bother, different game if that happens.


But fair play oz and timboi no doubt you'll turn up again now......[:P]

Mornin' Ray,

Are you well. I woke to a bit of a top order England batting fiasco didn't I? Is the pitch that difficult to bat?

Johnson's luck was right in getting Trott, KP and Colly out cheaply on LBWs.

Still it's game on, but I was hoping for better.

Come on England.[^]

Boro_Dave91 Posted on 17/12/2010 05:39

Well at least we have Bell in at the moment, he's looking steady and picking his shots well [^]

offside-again Posted on 17/12/2010 05:43
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Tremlett can bat very capable, even Finn can hold an end up, this looks like been a cracking game now, 6/4 Eng, and maybe OZ 4/6 from here, OZ have a long tail and a few dodgy ones in the top six, Prior and Bell a very dangerous combo at 6 and 7 with an older ball, and OZ with no spinner really, even game imo.


Even if we we're all out now we'd have a sniff. especially with 'rat face' Ponting as captain.


No need to panic.[?]

Johnson's bowling sling shot action isn't text book is it?

It's obviously been OK'd by the authorities and it's not as pronounced as Sri Lanka's Malinga, but the ball doesn't get too far above the his head at the point of delivery.

Sea_Harrier Posted on 17/12/2010 06:34
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

My ruling on this new breed of slinging bowlers would be this:-

Take Graham Swann's action as a spinner. He could quite easily speed up and deliver a much quicker ball using the same action of the ball leaving the hand way above his head.

Conversely Johnson, Malinga et al, couldn't deliver a spin ball with their action and that's why I think the authorities are lacking in their judgement. Slinging a ball makes it travel much faster, and if that wasn't the case then why do the boundary fielders throw in via a slinging arm from the waist and not an over the head throw?

I'd rather it have been Watson but gives us a chance against Punter with the ball still newish. Vital we don't let him settle in as he can take the game away v quickly.

Weather set fair for remainder of match so can't see a draw being a result at all now.

If we have 3 wickets by stumps then that would be a great scenario with Watson and Punter preferably added to Hughes.

Ray, spot on. He knew he had a tickle and should have walked.

Ponting is struggling badly, so here's a prediction. Ponting will be declared ill, or unfit, by the Aussie Test authority for the 4th Test and they will change the captaincy. A poison chalice for the new captain perhaps but I can't see Ponting surviving this.

Hopefully England can give us all a lift tonight by getting them out fast [^] I'm sure if we get them out on a low enough score we'll have enough time (possibly 2 days) to win [ref]

offside-again Posted on 18/12/2010 01:09
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

Plenty of succesful 300+ 4th innings chases at this ground, you would not want to be going for more than 350 though, but 300 is very gettable. [^] so we need them all out for about 230 or so. [xx(]

Evening lads [^]

My first night watching this test so hoping for a decent night. Pretty much agree with Dave and offside, if we can rattle a few out, and go in to bat with a reasonable total, you never know. Plenty of time and weather to bat it through. Calm heads needed from England, first time in the series we have a real job on our hands to save ourselves.

Keep the faith [^]

The good thing is it's only the 3rd day, so a big possibility of 2 full days batting for England and we've seen from the other tests we can hit big scores if we need to, hopefully won't be chasing too big a score though.

I fancy us to make the diff just over 400 and the game is there for the taking. I still think we'll win.

TBF your bowling hasn't been the best but some of our batting's been pretty poor.

There is absolutely no chance England can get 400 runs batting 4th on this pitch with it's bounce and swinging conditions. England haven't bowled well Australia have and that's the difference. Not the batting.

George1507 Posted on 18/12/2010 10:12

In 150 years of test cricket, England have never made anywhere near to 391 to win a test match, so you had a pretty safe bet there.

Anything better than 200 will be a good effort by England, but the series will be tied at 1-1.

It'll be a different series from now on I think.

Evening all. I checked the odds on England winning earlier, only 33/1!!!

The most worrying thing about this test is not so much that we are going to lose - that's accepted now - it's that Mitchell Johnson has burst into form. If he carries that forward, England have a big problem whereas we looked comfortable previously.

I thought we had a really good chance chasing 390 with 2 days to get it. Strauss, Cook, Trott, KP and Bell can all get 50-100, in the last test Cook and KP made that 390 on their own, if they bat like they can in the next test then we'll keep the ashes [^]

Obviously good test for us.

I'm going to enjoy Christmas just that little bit more now, and really looking forward to Boxing Day test.

See you again in a week (or maybe before that - who knows?)!

offside-again Posted on 19/12/2010 04:57
Australia Vs ENGLAND the ASHES.

The next two wickets should suit our attack a lot more, so long as we don't bottle it we still got a great chance of winning 1 of the next 2, do that and it's a win, all the pressure on OZ IMHO, I'd have took 1-1 at this point, not sure they would though.[;)]

Bring Shazad in though instead of bresnan, and bell go to number 5, that to me would be a stronger team, Shazad has got a decent 1st class batting avg, and some reverse swing at high pace.
