All one-way traffic the English foot firmly pressed into the gasping Aussie throat.

BRILIANT performance against the sad Aussie twats, their most diabolical day's cricket in 42 years!

If you like watching a coin toss decide a test series. It'll be like watching paint dry for the next 4 days. That drop in pitch is a joke.

I don't understand why they say that England has already won the Ashes. Still there's one match left and if AU wins it, won't the series be a draw 2-2??

Australians these days actually don't really care about cricket. Hence there were far more english fans at each test match than Australians. Apparently more people play Baseball in Australia than cricket.

As the holders England retain if it is a draw.

Sometimes you talk absolute shite. I went to the Perth test and whilst there were plenty of English voices around the place the majority of people there IMO were Australians.

England hold the Ashes from the last series so in the case of a drawn series, the holders will retain them.

Oh dear, yet another sad lost pom who doesn't seem to realise that they are lucky enough to be a guest in this country and should behave accordingly.

By the way.... there are two 'L's in Brilliant Einstein

Yeah I was at the Perth test as well In the members. Aussies were a minority all expats at the match English 4/5. If you look at Cricket crowds in Australia since the early eighties they've been on a massive decline. Cricket is not as popular in Australia like it is in England. Or it's not as popular in Australia as the english like to put it on as.
