    How much of a concern is Anderson's output to England supporters? From what little I saw at the Gabba he bowled decently but not as pentratatively as he has been in the more recent past. He also wasn't great at the back end if the England series. Anyone know if he's carrying a niggle or heard whether he's a bit fatigued?

    Cue match figures of 11-82 in Adelaide now I've raised this issue.

    England's behaviour in not talking to the media at Brisbane Airport was pretty bizarre. Can't really see the point in it. Coming out and acting like everything was fine would've sent the message that they weren't that ruffled by Brisbane and would just get on with the job in Adelaide. Instead, they've decided to act like the Liberal Party and refuse to talk to anyone.

    I guess whatever works, but by doing what they did they look like petulant 12 year olds and let everyone know they were rattled by the Brisbane loss.

    The Aussie media are petulant 2 year olds though so why bother talking to them?

    Craddock saying that a member of the English coaching staff went over to the umpires and said that the bowling was intimidatory

    If this is true it is the greatest thing of all time.

    It's not everyone though...at least work out who you should and shouldn't be talking to. A blanket ban just makes the English team look like a bunch of sooks. We've all heard how professional they are, so it would be nice to see it in action. It made them look as childish as some of the media has been the past week or so.

    going to put it out there that i'm genuinely bubbling with excitement for the first time in a helluva long time that we have finally turned the corner, and are going to play proper cricket like we should. listening to warner and clarkeh build their innnings on the radio on sat i went from super nervous all the way to super confident, and then see us close out the match and win in such a way that the poms (pretty recently in the discussion as the best team going around) are running scared not just at one focal player, but in my opinion actually a majority of the squad - it makes me feel good about the national team for the first time in quite a while.

    That would be handy.

    But to answer your question, yeah I've been worried for a while now. He didn't take loads against SA in 2012 either, so I wonder if passing 30 is beginning to reduce effectiveness from what it was in 2010 & 2011.

    He just seems to lost a bit of bite off the deck. Still a fine bowler with excellent control, but without that zip or swing (which he won't get) then he does lack consistently effective wicket-taking weapons beyond control. Which may be enough - we'll see.

    We have proven we can knock over Australia with out him so for this series its not a huge concern, but going forward against better batting line ups it is.

    Stuart Broad in a sensational hat on morning news this morning. A rather large akubra.

    Am fully expecting an England turnaround in Adelaide too. You'd think there'd be a fairly determined fight back after the 1st Test.
