About time England showed up to the Ashes. Should have made bulk team changes earlier.

You seem to have avoided the fact you made stuff up earlier
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

are you suggesting he was injured in the 4th test or are you referring to the injury that saw him 'managed' in the first test...remembering that both he and Broad declared that they were fit to play?

im suggesting he couldve played in Tas like he couldve played in Brisbane. there is nothing in any media reports that indicate he didnt get selected because he was injured.....in fact, quite the contrary!!!

BTW - thanks for not answering the question.....de javu....

I'd have thought it was answered when I told you exactly what I was suggesting.

Oh and "de javu". :lol:


You obviously read different media to me, I even heard it from Jimmy Anderson himself.

No excuse for England to not win this test. If they don't win there is something very wrong.

Strange you picked 15 as your number to use.

Hadn’t a hope in hell of winning this series but the lads turned up and gave it a go when it would have been so much easier for them to pull out. See it as a catalyst for a much needed re-focus. The BBL alone has shown English talent is out there, just needs better direction. Aussies (and Labuschagne) can have their day this time but I’m not pessimistic
