    Wrong on all counts. Warne was probably third or fourth in line for MoTS after Ponting, Clark and maybe Hussey, but nothign else was all that close.

    Hakon with the best tips pretty easily.

    Pretty crap predictions really, none of the cricketing ones right, and I fell asleep twice.

It was done in the official thread last year, and we can all have a good chuckle at those who get it horribly wrong ie probably this blinded optimist right here. The rose tinted glasses are firmly attached to my head and will be as long as those Ashes are ours.

    Score: 2-2 TBF this was more a prediction for what I think England's score will be after 1 over in the Twenty20
    Top Runscorer: Strauss Dire, but I wasn't alone. Strauss has mixed some silly shots with some bad luck, but I expect him to come back strongly.
    Top Wicket Taker: Warne No, but not an unreasonable prediction I guess.
    Most catches (wk excluded): Bell Think he made a couple, but again, incorrect
    Biggest surprise: Mahmood (changed to Anderson) Dire on both counts, though Jimmy A looked half-decent this time round
    Biggest disappointment: McGrath Correct, in that I'm disappointed he got his prediction right .
    Man of the series: Flintoff Humbug.

    Score: 2-1 Australia Well, that was always gonna be optimistic
    Top Runscorer: Pietersen Not far off
    Top Wicket Taker: McGrath Wasn't counting on Clark's awesomeness
    Most catches (wk excluded): Hayden Have no idea if this was right or not
    Biggest surprise: Bell That was a decent one, only Clark was a bigger surprise really
    Biggest disappointment: Hussey Erm....
    Man of the series: Pietersen Could have been if we weren't so utterly dire in general

    Not that bad an effort really, TBH. Just the one shocker.

    Top Wicket Taker: Lee - NO. CLARK MOVES WAY AHEAD OF LEE IN THE PECKING ORDER
    Most Catches (wk excluded): Hayden THINK THIS IS RIGHT, TIED WITH COLLINGWOOD
    Biggest Surprise: Pasener not playing a test while the series is "live" FLETCHER CAVED IN ONE MATCH TOO SOON FOR THIS TO BE RIGHT - WORST PERSON
    Biggest Disappointment: Above YEP
    Man of the Series: Ponting. YEP

    England to win in either Melbourne or Sydney, but nowhere else. God knows, it don't rain down here much anymore, so I'm predicting no draws.
    Not bad. Thought England would do the crappy salvage some pride thing, but the retirements and the awesome focus of this Aussie team meant that wasn't to be...

    Lets see:

    Score: nah.
    Top Runscorer: yup. Not an especially long punt tho, tbf.
    Top Wicket Taker: nah. Ankle & captaincy ****ed his chances.
    Most Catches (wk excluded): yup, partly. Shared the honours with Colly.
    Biggest surprise: Nah, has to be Clark. Bell went ok tho.
    Biggest disappointment: Nah, miles off. Harmison's 10 @ 61 carry the day for mine.
    Man of the series: yup. Always a fair bet, but his captaincy has suprised me.

    3/7. Must try harder.

    I'll pick 4-0 to England in 2009, then.

    Matt and Dav were on form, too.

    Well i got the first 2 right, Warne failed me big time though. Marto was probably the biggest surprise, but not for scoring runs. Thankfully Pietersen didn't dissapoint too much otherwise the series would have been even mroe 1 sided.
