    Guilty as charged.

    Unless weather intervenes its going to be 5-0 easy. The Poms have had their hearts ripped out and its going to take a miracle to avoid a whitewash.

    I said from day one the Aus bowlers would be the difference and it is (Steve Smith the exception). England have no answer to the pace barrage and their own bowling has been shit and thats a compliment.

    Really happy for Tim Paine, to think the guy was going to give the game away a couple of months ago - I remember when he debuted he was earmarked as the next captain after Micheal Bingle.

    He just has that professional, competent edge that has been missing since Haddin retired.

    Well done to Cook on his 100.

    Easily the most likeable bloke on the English team.

    Very rarely complains about anything & just gets on with the cricket.

    pakis had more chance to win a game that series than England ever did

    from memory they needed 150 odd runs to make in one innings to win and the collapsed or may be it was to bat out one session with plenty wickets in hand to draw and they ended up losing that game.

    England cant even bowl aussies out, atleast pakis did in couple of games.
