    I still can't believe the England followers who were nervous at any stage of a 546 run chase. How you would have coped in 1981 I can't imagine, or if you are old enough to remember it I'm surprised you lived to tell the tale.

    The reason I was nervous was because I knew that we really should win it. I was getting a bit jittery when Ponting and Hussey were going along nicely, but apart from that I was pretty sure of the win.

    I do remember, but I was at school for many of the big moments then. Anyway my nerves have got frayed and all my optimism in my cricket team has been utterly eroded through bitter defeats, or the eighties(barring Australia) and nineties as they were commonly known. Does make me wonder what Pizzorno will be like when he gets to my age
    Do I contradict myself?

    Team's a long way from right, yet, IMHO. It was nice (gorgeous, in fact ) to win, but really we've only papered over the cracks. For us to start kidding ourselves we have a great or even good side would be denial.

    I'm pretty devo but it's not the worst sporting moment of the season for me, that was definitely Roddick losing at Wimbledon. That was as hard to take as the Roosters losing consecutive GF's a few years back.

    Richo losing the brownlow last season and Aus losing the CB series in 06/07 for me (dunno why that annoyed me so much, just an ODI series, was going through a rough time I think and that just came out of nowhere).

    Roddick losing crushed my soul for days. Couldn't handle it.

    Yeah, won't forget the expression on his face after losing for a long time.

    Thanks to saggers, jondavluc & cokes for their congratulations, anyway.

    What a sport, eh? Lose by an innings and 80 runs ten days ago, piss it today. **** me.
    Yeah I was worried about the 10 day gap after the last test, would have loved it to have only been 2 days to hopefully carry on. England regrouped really well.

    Probably because we didn't really deserve to win.

    Feeling pretty devasted today. Not as bad as 05 though (or the recent home series loss against SA), but i'm assuming that's because we've lost a few recently.
