are there now any doubters left as to mcgraths powers of forsight?
My favourite is the one about Flintoff being the world's greatest player. Flintoff - can't bat, bowl, field or captain. All round useless. One series doesn't make a player great....but one series can really make a player look ordinary.
Back off on McGrath - I can't remember him making any predictions other than for the 2005 and 2006 ashes. His predictions are more often than not about who he's going to target...and 99% of the time he nails his man.
Back in 2004 when England were playing well McGrath was asked how the'd fair in the 05 ashes - I distinctly remember him saying 4-0 or 4-1. He made the 5-0 after Lords, and I have no doubt in my mind that if he didn't step on that ball it would've been 5-0.

@ all those that doubted McGrath
before the series started. The main point though is that it wasn't so much an arrogant dismissal of England's ability as a statement of his positive attitude towards every match. He believed that he and the other Australian players should accept nothing less than winning every game.
