    Cook's probably the racing fav on sheer weight of runs. Huss not far behind, but did fail twice at the MCG.

    I reckon if Anderson has a very good game then he'd be quite a deserving candidate. He'd be my pick anyway.

    I'd probably go with Anderson as it stands tbh.

    It's fair to ask what Cook has to do before I'd pick him. Learn to bowl. I just think they could have retained the Ashes without Cook's contributions more easily than they could have without Anderson's.

    Well IMO MOTS = man who had most impact, and whilst statistically Cook is the standout, the Ashes was won by England putting down our top order and for that Anderson takes the major credit.

    I'd give it to Burgey - present it whilst he's having his naked lunch.

    Anderson 7
    Finn 6
    Tremlett 6

    Seems spread around more then Anderson. It has really been the consistency of England's bowling attack that has hurt the top order.

    As I said I would only give it to Anderson if he has a really good game here.

    Hussey if he gets a good score at Sydney. Faced up to some seriously testing bowling and came out on top more often than not.

    Hussey/Cook

    Certainly not Anderson tbh. It's not like he's had a Mcgrath-like series.

    I've decided my Player Of the Series to be the six jars of co-op coffee I've managed to get through.

    Couldn't do it without you fellas.

    It's player of the series, not player who retains Ashes. If Hussey greatly helps Australia win this test and the series is tied, than I'd definitely give it to him.

    If Hussey scores and Australia don't win, it'll depend also what Cook does I reckon.

    But it's definitely only between those two IMO.
