First topic message reminder :

Western Australia next, which means staying up even later to watch the start of the third test.

You would think Perth is one place the Aussies should win, so what do we do?

Panic, and drop Swann, but leave Monty in? Or perhaps play four or five seamers? Has Stokes done enough? He showed plenty of attitude, so yes, he probably has.

Has Prior done enough to see him promoted to six, as Stokes isn't one..............yet? Maybe not but we have to try and win, and playing him at six, would enable us to play five bowlers again, with Monty dropping out.

Who comes in? Finn, the 90mph quickie, with a strike rate around 50? Reliable Tim? Just coming back from injury but will give 100%, won't get smacked around, and can bat a bit. Or rankin? This would be the biggest gamble imo, as he has no test experience.

My team:

Cook
Carberry
Root
Pietersen
Bell
Prior
Stokes
Broad
Swann
Finn
Anderson

Gerry you are one anti-British person oddly enough posting on a British-based forum.

Tennis boards you post of your loathing of Andy Murray, F1 board your angst is directed at Paul di Resta and Lewis Hamilton and here you are foaming at the mouth about England.

And why should posters not continue to post even if their team has been heavily beaten. To me that just shows they are not merely fair-weather fans.

Maybe I should do like a certain poster on here and suspiciously disappear, only to return half a year later.

Nah, that doesn't sound right. If I can't take delight at England, I'll most probably take delight in the team that have beaten them. So, once more:

Well done Australia, you proved me wrong. clap

Thanks Duty, Craig, Lucky, alfie and others for your kind congratulations.  OK 

It feels great to be a winning Aussie cricket fan again!

I'm Stoke('d)  Very Happy 

Guys, this thread has overflowed so I've set up another one here:
