I thought it was a thoroughly good night's cricket actually, whoever you supported, there was plenty of action.


P S Who are Chelsea?

We've dug ourselves out of a few holes in the last year with the tail wagging well let's see if we can do it again against these if we can we really have arrived, although I doubt it

Hoggard can dig in and has done in the past, I believe that'll be the key.

erm, get your facts right. I have not slagged off the team, in fact I said it was a good nights cricket all round. I didn't post any angry faces, I thought this was just friendly banter, similar to the exchange I was having by email with my mates in the UK.
Congrats Fraser, you probably just picked the wrong day to do that post, but you may well have driven me off the forum. I was looking forward to the same patter tonight, and all in fun, but obviously I have said something slagging off the English.
I'm quitting anyway, but if you could point out the offending phrase I'll gladly apologise before I go.

I wasn't talking about you Polly but about FB's comment about he couldn't care less if England sunk into the north sea, which I found a bit insensitive as we were being bombed again in London.

Anyway as strange as I found it, my traitor comments were only banter and I hope you wont feel the need to desist from future treacherous comments on my account

Maybe you should've said 'he' not 'they' in that case.

I grew up aware of a constant threat from the IRA and other such organisations. I am currnetly watching Sky News, and my heart froze last night when listening to the cricket and hearing the ABC break in with news of the latest explosions. Whoever I support, I have British roots, and I could never abandon them (apart from on the cricket pitch).

Get over it Polly I called you a traitor for supporting the Aussies against us, I stand by that. I was referring to you gloating about your own countryman losing
wickets and FB is worse as he's only been there five minutes at least you're married to a native so have a very small excuse.

Dont worry lads - There is a few England Players (Strauss, Bell, Flintoff, Pieterson, G Jones) who are making their Ashes debut and were bound to be nervous in their 1st Innings - They will get stronger as the series goes on and will get the runs!!!!

Some have got the Aussie "chip on the shoulder" down to a tee!

Don't think this 1st test is going to last the 5 days somehow.. The groundsmen at Lords seem to have been doing some dubious work with preparing the wicket.
