Australia did beat England 5-0. McGrath's premonition was just 18 months early.
You do realise that if Australia win at Headingley then Australia is in the box seat to retain the Ashes. Remember, Australia doesnt have to win the series. Or are you still under the impression England are the current holders of the Ashes because you wiped the 2006/07 series from your memory?
I am talking about the presen
t Ashes series. McGrath and Clarke said their piece on the 2009 Ashes series only. and for your information, England are 1-0 up in this series. It is you who is living in the past mate.
