Australia have been more like a disorganised rabble in comparison. They definitely have to look to be more consistent with the bat and ball for the remainder of the series.

Has been a revelation , has it not ? Mustn't get too carried away with one game ; Australia will not go away easily. But England have indeed looked a great combination in this game. I think what poor old Moores was saying was true : the potential was there , and the spirit was good. They just needed to get a bit more confidence and experience and we'd see some results. And in fairness , I think Farbrace helped them relax and enjoy it a bit more...and Bayliss seems to have - very quietly - helped that along.

May not be world beaters yet , but this looks like a good start.

Must concentrate again now with four still to get...

I hear you brennomac. But you didn't mention Haddin, he's a douche of the highest order. Australian 'cricket' is very unlikeable. The great spirit and style that England played recently against NZ means that I'm stoked for them. Rub it in lads.

All good thanks v much.  Had a poorly old year last year but much better now after getting well and some much needed changes.

How are things in Aussie land?

Really glad to hear that.  I knew you had a rough time for a while there , great things are looking up. I'm not complaining at the moment (though the weather has actually turned pretty nasty this weekend at least by Aussie standards : Polar Blast ! Is the headline , as the temperature hovers around ten Smile Some people don't know when they're well off )

We were in your corner of the world this January and I thought it looked pretty good even in winter ; will be visiting again some time soon - when the sun is out I hope.

Very Happy Sounds like our reaction down here when it sleets "carnage as blizzards hit". Some areas don't do winter weather too well.

Yeah we had a lovely mild winter mostly.

The problem with coming here is you can never tell when that will be. Oct and Nov were pretty sunny, as was March. April, May June had plenty of cloud and rain though. Always a nice place to be though.

I think the signs that things were coming together was the New Zealand series. Players brought in such as Wood and Ali (new to Ashes) have proven to be able to trouble the Aussies more than the Aussie players themselves thought I reckon. They earmarked Ali as the man to attack and they have paid the price.

Cook shuffling his bowlers around - he has done that much better lately.

And Wood does the trick...pending the inevitable review Smile

Wood taking to Test cricket like a duck to water. A lot to like about him. Bowls a disciplined line, uses the crease to the full, great attitude, spirited and can bat a bit.

Good. Most Welsh people are proud apart from a few who support England in cricket, England in football (but will no doubt jump on the Welsh bandwagon if we qualify for next Euros) and anti-devolutionists

A good choice though being with a Welsh girl. Unless she is from Cardiff...those woman are nuts Smile

I will bet you a million pounds that many of them though are ardent Welsh rugby fans and back the Welsh football team so would say it is a false analogy of sucking up to English people.

I am a Scot who has no qualms seeing England win at cricket and certainly wouldn't say just because I do I suck up to anyone.

I think he has the highest % of lbw dismissals of any Test batsman who has played a meaningful number of matches. 14 of 35 against England alone...

We're proud in Cornwall but as we don't have a national team the Cornish follow a mixture of Wales or Eng and sometimes both so It doesn't really worry us you people follow.

each to their own I reckon.

she was from Ponty. Still pretty mad Very Happy

Yep ebop forgot about the delightful Haddin, he really is a piece of work too. A real pleasure to see him hand Eng 134 runs after he dropped Root on 0 and then bat like sh1te

This game,, depends on Johnson really, he can get a big score but probably for sure.

Just checking.. is it a rule that young Aussie boys must be named "Mitchell"?

it's a fashion I can guarantee will never take off in cornwall where it is a surname associated with folk from the, shall we say, rougher side of the tracks.

Pity the Aussies capitulated so spectacularly. Mitchell and Mitchell showing that the pitch probably could have been more conducive to a 400 chase than most.

Opening we have Mitchell and Mitchell, followed by the excellent Mitchell, Mitchell. Then we've a gritty middle there from Mitchell, Mitchell and Mitchell before we hit the deadly bowling attack of Mitchell, Mitchell, Mitchell and Mitchell down in the tail.

Great team effort : no bowler took more than three wickets in either innings , but the combination did the job beautifully .

No justice that Anderson went wicketless today ; but he won't mind. Think Moeen has proved a point or two.
