    Mate, it'll be driving you nuts 15 mins into the first test when we've lost it already and the series with it.

    Well, it's been going since the 1880s, so it mans a fair bit to England and Australia supporters.

    It's the first one for 2-and-a-half years, same way the last one was the first for 1-and-a-half, and so the pattern goes on...

    No one questioning the importance of Ashes in the Cricketing world. Only concerned about all these prediction threads. Aussies will own the English ...............Again!

    I don't know what it's been like in the brief periods when England have dominated Ashes contests (1977-1986/87; 1953-1956; even 1926-1928/29) but my limited experience tends to suggest Australia's dominance of the contest 1989-2006/07 has actually caused the "Ashes is much more important than everything else" nonsense that perpetuates so much and has done in recent years. As I say, I might be wrong - maybe it was the same even when England were regularly emerging victorious; I have no memory at all of said time.

    I'd near agree with you on that Richard, It became important for the poms to get it back off us crims, while it became our utmost duty to ensure the poms never get their filthy mits on the urn again.

    Avatar now by choice. 5-0 in the Ashes and all.

    I have to agree for too long Ashes is more like a one sided winning streak. God knows what happened to England after the won the second last Ashes.....Simon Jones gone, Steve Harminson forgot how to bowl. Freddie getting injured regularly...Michael Vaughn went into a hibernate mode forever.....and now they have Bopara......who looked good but against Mitch, Lee, Clarke.........he will be toasted...........Further......
