England made the harsh call on Thorpe in 05, he was a shoe in I thought for the Ashes, excellent record against australia, yet they retained Bell and debuted KP, what a good move in hindsight. I have such a strong feeling- like a lot of Aussies- that it could be so bad for us this series, and it all couldve been avoided months and months ago. But we'll see I gues, and hope for the bloody best.
I am a pom living in qld so should be interesting as usual, especially as I'm going to the Gabba for Day 4 with my Aus brother-in-law.
Really glad Harmison won't be bowling the first ball! I remember watching the first over and thinking, right, that's it, we're screwed.
Crucial questions for me - are the Aussie batters truly on the wane? Can England prosper with a 4 man attack?
If you're a Pom living in Queensland, how haven't you melted yet?

Thanks Burgey. The wonders of AC and swimming pools have kept me alive. Raining hard as I write tho. Hope 'tis just a bit cloudy for Jimmy to do his work come Bris.
Since as the series progressed Bell got exposed technically & thus they could have dropped him in the middle & KP could have made his debut in the 3rd test for eg.
Ponting would have to not make a fifty for the series to have his spot under threat, especially having just been our best batsman in the previous series against India (maybe Watson, pretty close though).
More I think about it, he probably wouldn't be stripped of the captaincy even if we lost with the World Cup just around the corner. Only way that anything will change in the hierarchy is if he jumps.
He has indicated that he would probably not keep the captaincy should we lose.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
That's what I thought. Finding a fielder is not bad luck.
