Yes, I am aware the home advantage has changed. But my other points about comparing to 09 are pretty valid.
ENGLAND PLAYED WELL
ENGLAND PLAYED AWFULLY
Also, invert for Australia.
Haha, very true.
God knows what will happen in Melbourne. I don't like this ability we have to trade good with awful during test matches, and from one test to the next. Consistency is a wonderful thing, if we can manage it.

It doesn't really make for the best cricket either. I hope they both manage to turn up at the same match at some stage.
Yeah, it'd be nice. Preferably in a test that goes right down to the wire. I doubt we could have both teams firing with both the bat and the ball and end up with scores of 350+ in the first innings leading us into an exciting match. An up and down contest would be nice though, rather than one team not turning up much at all.
Yeah it would be good to see and I think we might do, Australia are surley not going to go back to being utterly awful and England nearly always responds well these days.
Sez The Guardian.
Think we need a change, but Bres as part of a four man attack scares me a little. If the Kookaburra refuses to swing he'll be fodder.

Yep, but they weren't runaway top scorers or wicket takers in 2009. They were fractitionally less worse than the guys who they finished ahead of.
Anyway, it will be a mortal blow for England or Australia respectively if either Anderson or Ponting can't play.

Just herd Anderson probably won't play the next test because of a side strain? Anyone have news on this? He was playing with his boobs alot last match and looked to have abit of soreness...
