Anderson is an outstanding bowler but then what?
Bresnan and Tremlett seem to be done
Broad has just been dropped after a string of ****ty performances
Finn is useful but not as good as any of our young guys
That leaves Onions, who, with all due respect, has never been that great anyway
Given that the backups seem to be guys like Meaker, it appears that England's fast bowling stocks have gone from a feast to possibly a bit short-handed whilst we are potentially headed the other way
Anyway, long way to go before the start of the series and judging by the recent durability of our guys, half of them could be declared dead before it starts
Against that, I don't think their bowling line-up will have to bowl as well as ours to dismiss the opposition.
The writing off of Broad and Bresnan is a mistake surely. Broad especially.
Obviously a fit Tremlett is about as likely as a fit Harris.

To be very honest, I reckon an on-field Pattinson in the most dangerous bowler on either side but the chances of him lasting a considerable part of five tests don't seem high.
Writing off Broad, esp. if he completely recovers from injury and regains his pace, is definitely pretty foolish though.
I agree with the top part, Pattinson has the potential to rip through a side in England.
He's a similar bowler to Anderson in alot of ways, except that he's a fair bit quicker.
Australia's series is definately in the hands of Pattinson, Starc, Siddle, Johnson, Bird and Cummins...........

Wouldn't it be funny if Clarke got injured.

Harris has no chance as he's currently sitting behind Bird, Cummins, Johnson, Pattinson, Siddle, and Starc (alphabetical order not preference) so should never be risked
Cummins and pattinson would probably have been put down by now if they were racehorses
Johnson is ****e
Siddle is good, would have an outside chance of getting in our side
