    Yeah exactly - it's a pretty limited window of opportunity, so let's take advantage of it

    Meh, I remember in 2005 when it was 1-0 to the Aussies there were all sorts of jokes flying around. Think there was a thread of them in fact, which Scaly dug at the end. Might find it.

    What do you expect Clarke to say? Our 2 best bowlers are injured and the other out of form and that we have an opener not ready for an Ashes series and a middle order batsmen way out of form? Did English fans even believe Andy Flower when he said it would be no big deal if Pietersen and Flintoff were both out injured?

    Of course I realise England is 1-0 and 2-1 if you had to award wins for the draws, though Australia totally dominated the English bowling on day 5 at Edgbaston. But the series isnt over yet. The English fans and press are talking as if they've already won the Ashes. No one seems to be making the point that all Australia need is 1 win and the pressure is back on England. Unless England win at Headingley Australia can still retain the Ashes.

    While England has played the better cricket lets put some things in perspective.

    The top wicket taker and top run scorer are Australian.

    Australians have scores 6 centuries to England's 1.

    Flintoff's bowling average is higher than his batting average which is a very respectable 42.75.

    Anderson can only take wickets when the ball is swinging.

    Stuart Broad's bowling stats are way worse than Mitchell Johnson's. (he's only averaging 4 more runs with the bat)

    Nathan Hauritz has taken 10 wickets@32 runs compared to Swann's 6@57 runs.

    Its not like England is dominating the series like Australia from 1989 to 2002/2003 and again in 2006/2007. Not to say that England can't win or don't deserve to win. But the series is still alive.
    Yeah, England have been crap and are 1-0 up. Not much of a point?

    Quite.

    Mind you if there's a point to be made it's that from Day 1 it's been clear that this series was always going to be determined by which team played marginally less s***. And despite being pretty damn poor, England have been marginally less s*** than the Australians.
