Congratulations to England on wining the Melbourne game and retaining the Ashes. Australia still have some great cricketers in their side they are just not working as a team, they also need to find a decent spin bowler just having a seam attack is not going to work.

A great day for English Cricket.......but.....the job is not done yet. We need to keep the pressure on and try to win the series in Sydney. Australia are hurting now and are sure to come at us hard next week.

Why do we need a football team, we are no good at that game and never will be while we have so many foreign players and managers in the premiership.
The beautiful game, do not make me laugh  {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

Absolutely a great day for english cricket,and you have to also give credit to all the backroom staff and not forgetting the "Barmy Army" what support they are fantastic.
My only disappointment today was to read in todays "Sun" what a Melbourne upmarket newspaper "The Melbourne Age" had written about KP i thought it might have be more suitable for RP.

Well done England  :-)) Australia were outplayed in every aspect of the game by a much superior team. Most of the focus here has been on Australia's poor performance, but I think not enough credit has been given to the quality of a very well balanced England side.

Chingdevil is right in saying that Australia need to find a reliable spin bowler, especially for Sydney, which is traditionally a spinner's paradise O0.

Yes he has been sidelined because of further damage to his finger or that is what they say. Clarke is taking over as Captain for the fourth test and USMAN Khawaja is to take the first drop position vacated by Ponting. Bollinger is in the side but will almost certainly carry the drinks as the only spinner in the side Beer will have to get a start on a spinners wicket. This will be a chance for Australia to play for some pride and a look at Clarkes style as captain. I still think Hussey should have been given the captaincy for at least this test.

Australia 134 for 4......or should that be 4 for 134.........either way, not the best of days for them. The wicket does look a little dodgy to me, so there is still a long way to go!!! :-)) :-))

134 for 4 (or 4 for 134  :-) ) is not too good at all, but the one bright spot is Usman Khawaja's knock. He has just about scored more in his first test than Ponting has all series, and played some great shots as well. Unfortunately, the weather has been somewhat erratic, so I hope it clears to allow the game to go on uninterrupted from here on.

I originally started this topic to have a good natured discussion about the Ashes series but, unfortunately, some people are not capable of replying in a friendly manner. I have always regarded the sporting rivalry between Australia and England as an amicable one, but some feel it necessary to make derogatory, supposedly funny, remarks. Fortunately, the vast majority also look upon the rivalry as friendly, and don't feel the need for ridiculous or inflammatory comments.
