Now then Ray how do you fancy our chances of stopping the whitewash? I think we have a chance we need a big score here but no doubt if we hit 400-500 Australia will do the same or better as usual.

Doing my best Schwarzer impression at 5 a side. Saved a rasping drive and bang, there goes my index, middle and ring fingers! (the rasping drive was going high and wide)!

And Ray, was that "fingers crossed" line meant to be a pun?!

re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

Morning Raymondo..234-4 is a reasonable score without being anything to get excited about. Collingwood and Flintoff will have to carry this on tomorrow as we have a long tail and failure to get over 400 will leave us under pressure when they get to bat. I think that our best chance for surviving the whitewash is for it hoy it down for a couple of days.

re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

Englands bowlers must class themselfs lucky to have two wickets as the bowling has been too short and either side of the stumps .

Chappy_112 Posted on 3/1 4:30
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

Yeah like I've said before I'm relatively new to Cricket but the bowling looked very erratic.

I was just thinking earlier on what has happened to Simon Jones? I thought he was amazing whenever I saw him! Will he ever play again?

ray192 Posted on 3/1 4:31

Another magnificent display from England’s tail….4 runs from the last 5 batsmen!!



England 234/4 to 291 ao

Australia 155/4 to 450+



You do the math!!



What price a Warney century in his last test innings!!!

Stuar_Tripley Posted on 3/1 10:07
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

did you see Ponting's face when Symonds tried to hit Monty out the ground in the last over not a happy chappy

good spells from Anderson and Harmison, but we didn't make them play at enough balls at the end of the day. We need wickets early tomorrow...look at Australia's middle order compared to ours.....the difference is huge!!

Celestron Posted on 3/1 10:41
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

All too predictable I'm afraid..232-4 at the start 291 all out. One of the main problems and there have been many on this tour is that the tail has started at 6. Apart from this innings Flintoff has done little with the bat and those below him have shown very little aplication when we needed them to eek out any runs to give us a chance. The top order also have not performed we have plenty of players making 30 40 or 50 but no one with the exception of Collingwood and Pieterson at Adelaide has gone on to make the big hundreds we needed and this has unfairly put the tailenders under pressure that they cannot cope with. Tomorrow we need to split up Hussey and Symomds very early and hope that their tail goes under like ours but I wouldn't count on it.

ray192 Posted on 3/1 10:57
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

Celestron

This is true what you say but you must also accept to many of our team are mentally not tough enough . When the going gets tough get going like the Aussies.

Our openers highest score is 51 totally unacceptable at this level .

LOL @ you .

How are you? .

Celestron Posted on 3/1 11:18
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

I said before they came out that the man they would miss the most was THE CAPTAIN..it was Michael Vaughan who galvanised these players into the team that overpowered the Aussies in 2005 it was him who gave them that mental edge that the Aussies could not cope with and when retiring players like Langer Warne or McGrath write their memoirs in the years ahead they will say excactly that...Remember in 2005 when Hayden dabbed a ball back to Simon Jones and Jones picked it up and threw it straight at him from 5 yards and hit him on the chest Hayden went ballistic and when Ponting was injured and no England player went to see if he was ok....this was Vaughan getting in their faces and the look on Ponting face when he was run out at Trent Bridge snarling up at the England dressing room....Vaughan pissed all over Ponting in that series and he would have done so again in this one.

just to pick up on your discussion last night ray, Harmy's best test figures of 7-12 were against the West Indies...a magnificent performance when he was undoubtedly at his peak. Let's hope he finds some of that form tomorrow...he's looked a lot better in the last couple of tests, maybe it's the thought of getting on that plane home!!

Don't even get me started on Strauss. The bloke has had failure written all over him all series. Appalling effort.

England's players are mentally weak in my opinion. They have no staying power and are too easily fazed.

Stuar_Tripley Posted on 4/1 8:50
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

now now ray....you have to take your hat off to what is an exceptional Australia team.

I fully agree with you that the entire England team should be made to read Steve Waugh's 'out of my comfort zone' in order to learn a thing or two about mental fortitude...however, sometimes you just have to look at the class differential between the sides and hold your hands up.

I have been really impressed with Clark this series, he's been the best bowler in my opinion. With the bat, they are stronger than us, with the ball they are stronger than us, and they have greater match awareness than us. This just goes to show what a fantastic effort it was for England to win the Ashes last summer.

There is however hope, the average age of the Australian side this series is 33, England-27. Average tests played by players in each side this series reads Aus- 70, Eng- 30...so I am fully confident that when the young England players get a few more hairs on their chest and gain a bit more experience, we will be ready to take on what will be a vastly less experienced Australian team in 2009 and win back the Ashes- how's that for a positive ending

ray192 Posted on 4/1 9:07
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

S_T

So the way we totally just buckle in a whimper is acceptable for you well i'm sorry it certainly isn't for me .

Yes i agree the Aussies are the best in the world.

England are a clueless unfit bag of shoite.

Management team are a disgrace poor preperation before series started plus poor squad selection.

ray192 Posted on 4/1 9:18
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

S_T

I welcome your comments as you make some very good points!!! but surely you can't even be satisfied with the ASHES series displays can you?.

Stuar_Tripley Posted on 4/1 12:25
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

i'm not happy in the least- the thing that seems to strike me is that England’s players are very much in their comfort zone- unwilling to challenge themselves against the world’s best, willing to accept events rather than making any attempt to influence situations and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!!!

It irritates me when I see such a lack of application from players such as Harmison who mopes around with sloped shoulders at mid-off, especially when you compare it to the energy Australia show in the field. Pietersen would be well past 50 already if it wasn’t for some exceptional ground fielding from the Aussies this morning.

but, for all that- i think England have been worn down (parden the pun!)- the intensity Australia have shown has been so relentless, that England have almost been left with a 'where do we go now approach'- granted this isn't acceptable for Test Cricket- and certainly preperations could have been better for this tour- but, we have to put this series to bed, learn from the mistakes, and figure out how we can challenge ourselves to be as consistently excellent as this fine Australian team.

ray192 Posted on 4/1 14:31
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

S_T

Agree with that I would start now by getting rid of the coach as he is so negative . We need passion, fight and commited players in all aspects of the game the man to bring this IMHO is Ian Botham the man is a natural fighter,who loves his country!!! but most of all he's a WINNER .

Ulcer no better i take my painkillers just before bed and everynight they wear off around 5 and wake me up. grrrrrrr!!

So now the end is in sight i'd like cheer everyone up with my favourite barmy army song:

to the tune of yellow submarine

In the town where I was born,
there lived a man who was a thief
And he told me of his life, stealing bread and shagging sheep.
So they put him in the nick, and then a magistrate he went to see
He said "put him on a ship, to the convict colony"

You all live in a convict colony, a convict colony, a convict colony....repeat to fade

If you can't go down fighting then you obviously have no pride in wearing the shirt. This session has been an absolute disgrace. They're a disgrace. They should have to come home via public transport. Absolutely pathetic. They've not really made the Aussies work for it all series. We've given our wickets away time and time again. To capitulate like this just says to me they've given up...... Something that you should never do wearing the jersey of England. Disgusting.

re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

whats gone wrong then??

got back on the 28th from aus wen to the boxing day test but that was it.

so is it

1) preperation
2) since the last ashes we've collected MBE's sat around, they've been focused on one thing winning it back
3) Vaughen's that great a skipper??!
4) simon jones?
5) harmison should be opening the batting at this rate!!

any thoughts

Mat_Evans Posted on 5/1 0:17
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

I agree, there's too much pressure on flintoff. Should have been strauss all along.

Dundee the auzzies would never do that they're too professional, plus it's langers last test too. He's opening.

Simon Jones was fantastic in the last Ashes so hes a huge miss.

Vaughan wasn't great in the last Ashes in terms of batting but obviously a great captain in terms of knowledge of the game

Flintoff has been nowhere near his best a mixture of the captaincy and his injury?

Trescothick was a decent batsman and would come up with a century now and then

Panesar should have been in from the start

Preparation for the Ashes was appauling

Well the England cricket team have well and truly embarrassed the nation. Thanks for making my first month as an Australian resident thoroughly uncomfortable as a sports fan you pathetic spineless losers.

England were soundly beaten in all five tests. In only the second test did they look (for the first four days) like a good team. Apart from that test, England were thoroughly abject and oozed failure. You can almost feel their desperation to get out of Australia as quick as possible.

I've never seen England perform so poorly in ANY series before and we've had some woeful teams over the last 20 years or so.

Stuar_Tripley Posted on 8/1 8:58
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

i don't think Both would give up his Sky salary to take over as England coach- although i definitely think he would shake things up a bit.

What gets my goat is experts like Atherton and Hussain critising England's performances. These are guys who may have been great Test cricketers, but who never even came close to winning the Ashes- so it's a bit rich when they start talking about England's failures (unless it's in a constructive manner of course!). At least the likes of Botham, Gatting, Gooch, Gower, Boycott, Willis (even though i think he's a miserable sour-faced git!) can say they've won the Ashes!

as for the one dayers- i fear the worst- we only have 2 world class one day performers (Pietersen and Flintoff) and Flintoff looks like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders (and a dodgy ankle!). The recall of Vaughan as skipper smacks of desperation- there must be doubts as to whether he can last the pace fitness wise and his stats don't make great reading at one day level.

ray192 Posted on 8/1 9:29
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

S_T

You make very good points again I dont think Vaughn if not 100% fit should be in the same country never mind captaining his squad of players into battle . Oh and Gower gets on about Cook being out playing across the line outside his off stump he ought to know he was a master at doing it .

Spoff_MFC Posted on 8/1 10:06
re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

I really don't think Botham would be any good. His opinion of players changes way too much.

Nasser Hussain would be interesting to replace Fletcher, but maybe too early as he not long since finished.

I doubt it will be anyone from the comentators, too comfortable workign for Sky.

How about Buchanan from Aus, he's leaving soon.

Personally thought, keep Fletcher. two defeats in 12 test series.

Mistakes have been made, they will be learnt from.

re: Australia ODI stats

nope it doesn't, but for some reason something inside of me makes me believe that England will somehow one day turn up to the party and produce sustained decent performances over the course of a tournament/ series!!!! you'd think that i'd have learnt by now

re: Australi v ENGLAND fifth test.

Strauss, Vaughan, Bell, Pietersen, Collingwood, Flintoff, Nixon, Dalrymple, Lewis, Anderson (gulp!), Panesar.

about time we threw Plunkett in, he's been on en extended holiday since he got to Oz!!! Play him instead of Anderson i reckon.

I'm amazed the great Vikram Solanki isn't in the squad he's had an extended holiday for the last 6 Winters
