its the bottom line, fear based, impatient mentality in the current team. they dont understand this - they think its all about 'making the team' and everythign will be sweet- instead they should be concentrating on being the best cricketers they can, no matter what.
thats why i like bolly n harris- they seem to know their game well, and harris himself said that his fc match last week was more important to him then the gabba test- good attitude.
Agree on England being potentially the stronger of the two outfits. Could easily see Australia going down if things don't change. Having said that, we were inconsistent in England last year too, things could quite easily change around this test.

As long as he's furious and not shocked...surely he must've seen it coming when he was moping around the Gabba during the test bowling a steaming pile of ****.
If the report is true, not wanting to bowl to the team before the next test is pretty piss poor (unless it interferes with the domestic schedule of course). It seems getting dropped is ok for some but not others.
I'd lay a twenty on less than 25 wickets falling this Test.
Will be interesting with declarations as well. I doubt we'll see too many adventurous first innings declarations and setting a total will also be highly conservative. Hell, could see the first team ever chasing down 500 to win the match late next week.
Rest In Peace Craigos
but even warne himself has said that the difference between someoen that plays 1 test and someoen that plays 100 tests is their attitude towards their training, preparation and their motivation to become the best cricketer THEY POSSIBLY CAN BE
i dont think this current lot have the right attitude. for the ashes and looking past that in the future- have seen it coming for a while- was evident in india.
just seem to not be adequately prepared and planned for whats coming. ie jonson, clarke, the way theyve dealt with spinners, north .
**** off. It would only be ironic if all the batsmen in the QLD side were English, they were playing at the Gabba, on an identical pitch, and he takes a 10-ferJohnson is expected to return to his adopted state of Western Australia and he will, ironically, play against his old state Queensland in a one-day 50-overs-a-side match at the WACA in Perth on Friday.
Bad feeling about this game, reckon Aus will rack up 600+ if they bat first and from then on its not so much about the pitch but whether we can stand up to the pressure. Hope we win the toss and bat
What a ****ing prima donna. Should realise that bowling turd tends to get you dropped,Johnson is understood to have been furious at his omission and indicated that he would not train with the Aussies in the Adelaide nets in the besieged teamís last full workout before an optional session on Thursday, the day before the match starts.
