I generally support Australia in these types of things.
I had a period when I was supporting England because it was great to see how professional their bowling attack was. They seem to have regressed from there where it's no longer enjoyable; I used to be able to watch them meticulously bowl to a plan, whether with swing, reverse or just plain line and length and watch as Australia's batsmen eventually and inevitably succumbed.
That won't be so much fun when Aus's batsmen are no longer as powerful. Moreover, it will be quite interesting to see how the young Aussie quicks go.
So yeah, Australia.
But I don't really care.
Been quite an interesting read for me this thread, being new here and seeing what the populous thinks and how the neutrals feel about this series. I discuss cricket on 2 other forums, the Barmy Army forum and another which has a heavy Aussie bias (no, not the fanatics)......so this thread is the first time I've seen for want of a better word a more objective view on the two sides.
Just surprises me that some people are barracking against England for the sole reason of our press being dogs
South Africans have a rivalry with England; South Africans hate Australians.
I find it quite funny though given that so many end up emigrating there anyway. I wouldn't, I'd emigrate to New Zealand, but plenty would and do choose Australia.
Anyway, am I the only one who doesn't feel quite the excitement for the ashes as compared to usual? It just feels like ever since the Aussies became weak, the series doesn't hold the same sort of esteem to me than it used to.

Disclaimer: I am a biased South African. Anything I say is likely to have something in it that ultimately favours the Proteas.
I've just always grown up with a dominant Australia, and an England team that despite being inferior, always made you believe they could upset the big boy. Now it just seems like a frail old Australian grandmother waving her walking stick at a slightly pudgy 14 year old who has developed a lot of "stuff" recently but doesn't quite know how to control it all.
Care to elaborate? (face)
