    The Ashes Infractions: Australia, mainly due to the fact that most of the trolls tend to be Australia. Probably England out of pre-existing members though.
    Other miscellaneous: Warne to become main selector for Australia, and convinces England to select Jim Allenby at Perth because "he knows the local conditions".
    Result: Oh dear
    Most runs: Tick, tick
    Most wickets: Cross, cross. Neither an awful guess but neither panned out the way it did.
    Left field selection: Went close, he did make the squad.
    Surprise dropping: tick.
    The Ashes Infractions: ????
    Other miscellaneous: Well, tongue in cheek this one
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    That's not a thought which especially fills me with a great deal of joy, mind you.
    g00d stuff
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Miscellaneous: Clarke to miss at least one Test from his back, Johnson to be rubbish but still play at Adelaide and Perth, Smith to take at least 5 wickets.
    One out of ten, get around me.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Surprise dropping: Shane Watson once the selectors finally realise he's hopeless
    The Ashes Infractions: We've got sledger, although none of his infractions will have anything to do with the series.
    Other miscellaneous: Australia will smash us at Perth. David Gower will get fired after strangling Shane Warne live on TV after he utters the phrase "have to be prepared to lose in order to win" for the 14,000th time that day. Nasser Hussein will shortly follow suit after taking exception to Warne explaining that "if it seams, it spins."
    I'm claiming a small victory on being one of the few to predict an Australian win, even if the margin was hopelessly out. Believe KP was England's top run scorer, and I'm claiming my Australian left field selection. Also claiming the "Australia will smash us at Perth" - unfortunately the sentence is missing "and Brisbane, and Adelaide, and Melbourne, and Sydney."

    England - Compton to be brought into the side when Cook's back gives up the ghost
    The Aus win was predictable to anyone who'd actually watched the series in England, but obviously I never saw Johnson coming, and I did think we'd have a more resolve than what we actually showed.

    Was KP our top scorer? Doesn't matter either way, they were all a ****ing disgrace.

    Yeah yeah, that's all well and good, but how fantastic was me tipping Johnson for MOTS?
