    tbh I'd have dropped Hilf before Johnson - Hilf bowled fair rubbish and even when he bowls good he doesn't take a lot of wickets. At least with Johnson he can still take wickets with rubbish balls.
    Yeah that's true, by the sounds of it he is likely to play. Really don't get that though, because it will probably be a very flat pitch in hot Adelaide conditions. He is mainly a swing bowler, and I doubt there will be any swing on offer.

    bingo.
    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.

    Well, that and the fact they had some of the best players in the last two decades going around. No amount of preparation will make our current batch play in the same manner.

    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.

    Yeah I agree.

    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 could understand this if he got Beer, Hogan, Mitch Marsh out, but he got the two key batsman in Shaun Marsh and Voges out. Good signs for Hauritz.

    I'd lay a twenty on less than 25 wickets falling this Test.

    I'd take that. Lightning twice, etc...
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    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.

    .
    fair enough
    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 .

    Johnson 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.
    **** 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-fer

    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

    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.
    What a ****ing prima donna. Should realise that bowling turd tends to get you dropped,

    Yeah, that pissed me off too. There is literally no interpretation of irony that could mean that would fit.
