    I think Patto's gonna take 15 wickets this game.

    Draw, IMHO.

    It's how they roll in Brisbane.

    Taylor in at #6 & Tremlett in as the third seamer is the way England will go.

    Personally I'd like to see Compo or Robson to open and Root back down the order, but don't think it'll happen.

    Wow. Holy ****.

    Anyway, momentum is key here. I reckon England scraping away with a draw in the first Test in the 2009 Ashes and coming back hard in the 2010/11 Ashes first Test helped them majorly in the series. In plenty of our big wins winning the first test heavily set the tone for the series.

    Then again this didn't happen in 1997 and 2005....

    Nah, you had 70 odd years at Lords FFS........this team put an end to that and we can do the same at the Gabba. Except we always start series really badly.
