    Personally, silence = death in running between wickets.

    Still think that if Katich goes when Watson calls/whispers that they make it without fuss. Whether it's Watson's call or not, Katich could have made if he went rather than dawdling.

    Clarke 6 Gutsy 2nd innings knock under pressure
    Hussey 7 Looks in prime form though threw it away on last day.
    North 2 Surely his last match?
    Haddin 5 batting very well but dropped a dolly
    Harris 5 Pick of bowlers, not saying much though. King pair
    Doherty 1 Not good enough
    Siddle 2 Bowled utter garbage
    Bollinger 1 So much hype so little delivery
    Might want to run through that teamlist again, champ. Pretty sure D. Hussey wasn't playing, let alone opening.

    Cook - 9. In the form of his life.
    Trott - 8 - might not be box office, but he is playing bloody well.
    Pietersen - 10. Declared himself an all-rounder after removing Clarke, who am I to argue. Piled the misery on Australia and took probably the most important wicket.
    Collingwood - 5.5. Steady with the bat, useful in the field. Did enough.
    Bell - 7. Good innings, easy though the going was he still managed to look a million dollars.
    Prior - 5.5. Steady but could have cost us with his drop. Should buy James Anderson a pint.
    Broad - 4.5. Looked good without the end product but supported Anderson well on day one.
    Swann - 9. Did his job in the first dig, won us the game in the second. A true national hero.
    Anderson - 8. World class on days one and five. Disappointing on day four.
    Finn - 6. Atrocious first dig but came back well second time. Hussey ball might not have been an ATG but the execution was spot on.

    clowns

    Katich - 3. His dismissal set it all off.
    Twatto - 4.5. Hasn't got it in him to score big ones but did okay both innings. Bowled like he was playing a practical joke on somebody, on day two.
    Chimpy - 0. It's pasag's fault for making that tribute thread.
    Clarke - 5. Got a pearler first dig but fought back well second time. Doesn't have the balls to see the day out. Would lose points for letting his dismissal be reviewed but as he apologised I'll let him off.
    Hussey - 6. Did well both times, but the shot to get out was slightly questionable.
    North - 10. Integral to England's retention hopes.
    Haddin - 4.5. Ok first dig, did nothing in the second,
    Harris - 4. Australia's best bowler. Although that is like having the best vision on the blind ward.
    Doherty - 1. Seems like a nice lad.
    Siddle - 2. Hat-trick seems a long time ago.
    Bollinger - 1. Atrocious.
    Ha ha

    Colly is a 0.5 - couldnt buy a run atm
    Prior was correctly given out but given a reprieve and cant catch a cold - 1
    Bell comes into bat with no pressure and runs arent worth anything - 4
    Broad is Eng's 2nd best bowler - 7
    Jimmeh is back to form ( good one day, total **** the next) - 7
    Swann's figures are massively flattered by the tail - 6

    Australia - 0

    Bell's runs were pretty much the difference between England batting again and winning by an innings.

    If you don't bowl out the tail, you don't win the game.

    I know you hate giving us credit, but **** me, that's two ****ing stupid points there.

    Yeah always pisses me off when people denigrate bowlers because they can only clean up the tail or whatever. Such a stupid point, getting rid of tail enders is just as important as getting rid of top order batsmen.

    Social - -1

    And Collingwood got 42 ffs, it's hardly 'not being able to buy a run'.

    Australia:

    Katich - 4: Freak dismissal in the first innings, failed to convert a start in the second.
    Watson - 6: Solid performance. Not really match-turning though.
    Ponting - 2: Horrible performance with the bat, uninspiring as a captain, though not much he could've done.
    Clarke - 5: Fought hard in the second innings in a difficult situation. Ultimately failed again.
    Hussey - 7: Australia's best batsman. Loses points for his atrocious shot in the second dig.
    North - 2: Not much more can be said. Expected performance from North.
    Haddin - 4: Scored a 50 on a flat deck, then failed with the gloves and failed in the second innings, though he got a genuine good ball.
    Harris - 4: Probably the most encouraging Australian bowler, though that really doesn't say much. Kingpair coming in at no 8 is pretty awful.
    Doherty - 1: Tempted to say zero. Felt sorry for him, clearly not a test bowler.
    Siddle - 2: Toothless performance.
    Bollinger - 2: Same as Siddle.


    England:
    Strauss - 5: failed with the bat, but led England to their first live win on Australian soil in years.
    Cook - 9: Chanceless hundred basically, thought he actually batted better than in the last game.
    Trott - 7.5: Edgy innings, displayed a clear weakness to the short ball but still made runs. Got a vital runout.
    Pieterson - 10: Peerless performance in every capacity.
    Collingwood - 5: Average performance really, though didn't really do anything wrong.
    Bell - 7: To me still looks arguably the best England batsman. Didn't get a chance to show much.
    Prior - 6: Solid stuff
    Broad - 4: Not great. Took one wicket and got injured.
    Swann - 8: Bowled well in the first and beautifully in the second.
    Anderson - 8: Brilliant performance in the first innings on a flat pitch.
    Finn - 5: Showed some promise, also some vulnerability.
    I think you're nailed it for mine.
    Aus: 39 points.
    Poms: 74.5

    Well and truly reflected in the scorecard.

    English poster ratings after two Tests:

    BoyBrumby - 6. Does ok for himself despite the obvious handicap.
    flibbertyjibber - 4. Jesus weeps after every post.
    Marcuss - 2. Usually good value, but the decline has been sudden and quite noticeable. Might be terminal.
    Goughy - 7. Gets the highest rating for being a self-hating pom.
    marc71178 - 1. Improving.
    zaremba - 3. Consistent drivel for two Ashes series now. Impressive.
    four_or_six - 5. Will you still need Watto when he's 64?
    Jamee999 - 3. Goes missing when England do poorly and then suddenly he's back when they do well. The ultimate bandwagon fan.
    GIMH - 0. Oxygen thief.

    Flibbertyjibber is rated too highly for mine. Sprays posts all over the place and is rarely accurate. Sledging is average, but does have the tendency to get under an opponent's skin by saying it with a grin on his face. 2
