    I know mate, all England fans love to hate Ricky because he's been so bloody good and turned us over so often, but you can tell, off field he's a good bloke.

    It's important we bounce back in Sydney and give the fans something to be proud of. We've got to prove to ourselves and the fans that we're still good cricketers.
    That's ITSTL.

    I was more coming from the POV of "the end of one of the finest batsmen in the history of the game".

    Congrats England, too good. Ricky will maybe get his farewell at Sydney then retire from tests.

    Argh I hate that I feel a little bit sorry for Ricky. I guess I wouldn't mind if he got a pair in Sydney before having an amazing 2011 and finally retiring before the next Ashes.

    Wouldn't mind if Sydney was a decent game of cricket without a ridiculous collapse from either side.

    For all his faults on the field, Ponting is always gracious and speaks very well when the Australian side loses. Not what you'd call a sore loser at all, just an emotional competitor in the heat of the moment.

    I think Sri Lanka but it's a fair bit a way.

    NZ could be above us in the rankings by then. I doubt we'll beat anyone in the next 12 months, certainly not SA or India, obviously.

    **** sake, that's probably the 2 tours I'd most want to avoid if England were in Australia's position.
