    My first thought was that it could be a blessing in disguise for England. I've never really believed in Anderson as a credible proposition in Australia, and if this means that Tremlett gets in the team then it may work in our favour. Finn, Broad, Tremlett makes for a worryingly one-dimensional pace attack, but they would not be a pleasant proposition on pitches with any pace and bounce.

    Surely if this was a big deal it would have been reported at the time? Or by Anderson on Twitter or some ****. "Rib broken, raped by Monty, thx".

    Guy involved was another bowler. Maybe he did it to get in the playing XI. Smart work.
    This was a serious post:

    I wouldn't be surprised if Swann disappoints slightly in Australia given the expectation after his recent form. His form before the last Ashes was pretty good too. We also heard a lot about how good Anderson had become before the last Ashes...and he turned out to be pretty much the same as he had been previously - good in conditions that suit, and went missing when they didn't.

    Swann may have improved mightily though, so it will be interesting to see how he goes in Oz. I certainly wouldn't discount him going well given how people have been talking him up of late. He did well in SA after all.

    It's conventional wisdom that banging it in is the way to success in Australia but there's barely been a bowler this millennium to go there and support that theory. Even the ones that bowled really well got absolutely smashed- check out how many wickets Kemar Roach and Ishant Sharma left with.

    Australia's recent home batting failures have all been exclusively down to swing. At the SCG last year against Asif and Sami, at the MCG the year before when Steyn took ten and at Perth the year before that against (of all people) RP Singh and Irfan Pathan. Jimmeh's absolutely crucial.

    Jimmy.

    Stupid Buchanan, I've no idea why we had to have one of his 'bonding sessions'. Didn't a couple of Aussies get injured at theirs last time round?

    ******** training strikes again. I thought we'd got over a lot of this when Moores got the boot, with the almost regular pre-Test injury.

    Can you imagine if Swann had gotten injured? ****ing stupid.

    Yeah that's true actually. Last time we were there our only swing bowler, Southee, was the one who had the most succesful innings. Even when Grant Elliott trundled in for a couple of overs in the first test he made Clarke or someone look a bit concerned when he was getting a bit of swing. O'Brien was the only bang-it-in bowler to look remotely threatening across the series.

    England will be missing a trick if they don't replace Anderson with another swing bowler I reckon. Who is the next best swing bowler over there?

    Shazad is being added I think. No-one else in the squad.

    Seem to remember about MacGill doing something to his knee, but can't be sure on that.

    Only a matter of time before Warne uses this injury as an opportunity to attack Buchanan, though.
