Bowl bowling attacks, you'd imagine, will be very strong so it comes down to the blokes at the business end. Both sides are, overall, stronger with the ball with a couple of blokes utterly dominant on the team sheet but get the feeling England will handle the Aussie bowling attack better than the reverse as nothing I've seen of late suggests the Aussie bats are going to be particularly good at handling the swinging ball (always has been the case, really). Will be a tight series, though.
Lyon a sleeper for a good series on English soil as you reckon the English bats will be more worried about the pace attack and plan accordingly. Depends on the time of year the series is being played. Anyone have any idea? Because a late-season series could really bring the spinners into play.

Think 93 was the last Ashes to start in June, or possibly 97
Is anyone else tempted to treat both 5-matches as two legs of one big series, despite the fact we have a random 7 match ODI series in India in between (which will surely rate as the most meaningless of all time when played)?

we build our own unfolding.
i dunno know the 5 match OD series again England this year is pretty meaningless too
