    This whole England being poor away from home is news to me. Think England were a poor team under Moores, home and away and they were also pretty ordinary in the last couple of years under Fletcher. If anything until the last year and a half they have been equally ordinary both home and away.

    It should be a close series, but I don't see Australia losing to England at home. 2-1 to Australia.

    Well, atleast you didn't say you'd run naked somewhere if England were to win.

    Awesome Johnson is awesome. He's Australia's best bowler and shouldn't be dropped for the odd bad match regardless of how **** he looks in that match. So glad to have backed him to come back strongly.

    Now all we need is Bollinger's return for Melbourne so I can post the same thing on Boxing Day.

    Believe the word you're looking for is "gloryhunter". He'll be back in our camp when Bell hits a triple ton and Jimmeh takes 15 at Melbourne.

    Hmm, I think that you really have to give credit where it's due here. I'm not sure we would have seen the turnaround without him having some time for some remedial work. Even without the swing, he managed to be a lot better with his line, especially to the left handers.
