38/3

WICKET - Hughes lbw Swann 1 (Aus 36-3)
The review confirms what we suspected, Hughes plumber than Plumby McPlumb. Australia, quite simply, are being crushed by the England steamroller. The Aussies are 36-3 chasing 583!

Flintoff on Twitter yesterday suggested we should even it up and let them bat three innings!

I remember Australia playing England back in the early 90's at the MCG.
Even though they copped a pasting The barmy army were in fine form singing about the Pound being 30p to the dollar.

Role reversal, now its you guys with the shite economy and winning the bread and circuses to keep your mind off your troubles.

pffft pull the other one mate. What about all the interviews for mining jobs they've been doing in London & Dubai.

as an aside, I drove through Liverpool last year. (very quickly and with the windows up and locked) Mind you that was after a quick trip to the zoo (Blackpool). 2 places I'll probably never see again

Quick stat courtesy of the BBC:-

The last time Australia lost four successive Ashes Tests was between 1926 and 1928/29 when England won five in a row.

I've never been to either place and am not particularly fussed about going either.

Funnily enough, as soon as I posted that I got a linkedin request from Perth and a CV immediately after that. "Willing to relocate anywhere, work is drying up here".

And that is interesting, because after that the Aussies with Bradman turned things around only to see those cheating bloody Poms invent bodyline bowling.

You don't need the bit in red there. It was a one man test side.
