Ugh, unchanged lineup. If Beer gets selected, plays like ****, does this mean we can get Hauritz back for Sydney? Please?
Any chance Cosgrove's name might be thrown in the hat if Ponting doesn't pull up, or is he still too fat these days?
Yeah he's in quite some form. It would make our lower order amazingly strong with Johnson back in nick.

So which versions of the Jekyll and Hyde outfits that are Australia and England will turn up in Melbourne.
Be nice if both play well in the same game for a change.
Hauritz will never play again...How can he? He solds his pads at a garage sale.

It'd be tough on Beer to be dropped from the squad, but there's no reason why the selectors couldn't have announced a 13 man squad.
I would not want to lose an Ashes series because the selectors were too stubborn to pick the best spinner in the country.
