    Haha. Just when I thought the 5-0 thread was the worst one going around.

    I can't believe the amount of people who have given serious responses to what is clearly not a serious thread to be honest.

    It's pure quality. My original idea for a thread was entitled "Would England have won if Popeye and Superman were in the team" But then I thought that would be pushing my luck a bit too far.

    I think Popeye's influence would greatly depend on if they decided to declare spinach a performance enhancing drug.

    Come off it, it's not as if anyone has suggested that Australia lost on purpose because the current generation coming up to retirement wanted to add "regaining the Ashes" to their CV having previously never achieved that feat.

    I think its quite clear to me that both Hayden and Langer are 2 players who would have struggled to average in the 30s had they played in an any era before the late 90s. The fact that both had mediocre records before that bears testiment to it. Even now against a quality attack on a pitch offering any sort of assistance you can see their deficiencies being exposed quite easily. For mine while this current Australian bowling attack is still looking quite strong(with Johnson presumably coming in) the batting largely revolves around Ponting and Hussey(and to a lesser extent Clarke) while the rest are either ordinary(Langer, Hayden), past it(Gilchrist), or just rubbish(Symonds).
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Hayden has shown that he is very vulnerable when the ball is seaming around and bouncing. He looked weak against the remnants of the great West Indian fast bowlers, and couldn't cope with the extreme pace of an unfit Shoaib Akhtar.

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Yes hayden must be vulnerable when the ball is seaming and bouncing....being one of only 2 batters to score good runs on a pitch that finally did something for bowlers in melbourne.

    I think many of the people who responded seriously, including me, were being sarcastic. To counter attack a silly thread you need a sarcastic response.
