    2005 Still kills you though, doesnt it?

    It may be 5-0, but enjhoy it while it last, who knows, in 2009, when you cannot start crying to Warney, or turn to Mccgrath, you iwll be in so much trouble.

    The Aussies have been more graceful in victory, IMO. While this is obviously a sweeping generalisation, there was a fair bit of rubbing in done by certain English members *looks at above two posts,* and I do remember an email from one member here (not naming names, but he has over 40,000 posts ) with a picture of Warnie dropping the Ashes. But I think the fact that it was the first time they'd beaten us in nearly twenty years meant that they had just a little bit of pent up frustration inside, whereas for us, it's merely order restored.

    You'll have to introduce me to your Pommy mates then, because Poms rubbed it in horribly after 05. I am going to give it back 5 times as bad. They are a disgrace.

    Hang on..........

    We are a disgrace if we rub it in, so you are going to run it in 5 times more. Doesn't that make you 5 times the disgrace we are?

    The English cricket team are a disgrace, not their fans.

    And to be fair I'd like to thank the majority of Australians for not going overboard.

    Funnily enough it seems to be the more mature, well respected ones whose posts are usually entertaining and well written.

    Wonder if there's any link between the 2?

    Why are they a disgrace? Obviously they have played like ****, but it's not through lack of trying (which is the worrying bit).

    In my opinion, being a disgrace it not trying, giving up and behaving poorly, none of which the England team has done, if you want to see a disgrace, look no further than Ponting when he gets out on a bad day.

    Swearing and abuse is way too far, you fon't get fined for being annoyed. Anyway, plenty of other players mange not to start swearing at people when they get out.

    Agreed with marc tbh. I wouldn't mind if someone like pasag or Fuller did want to rub it in to me personally, I probably deserve it

    What's irritating is after England's home Ashes series we got all of what 13-14 months before it's off to the old convict colony. The Aussies then get twice as long after their home series before England get a chance of restoring the Ashes to their rightful home, so Australia gets twice the gloating time if England win at home then Australia win at home... totally unfair. It's like saying oh Australia won the World Cup, lets not have another for 8 years then.
