    TBH, it's not entirely surprising. Trott has been awful for a while now. England haven't scored over 400 in a long time. Bell was going to fail at some stage.

    They might need to go through a bit of a transition and get some of the younger blokes in.

    Aye, batting needs looking at, you'd be hard pressed to find an England fan who will disagree. Basically I have no concerns in the long run about Cook, KP, Bell or Prior. Carberry is unproven and not a long term option, Trott looks shot, Root needs a chance to settle into a role and prove himself.

    The only ground M Clarke has a better record at than the Gabba is the Adelaide Oval.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Draw the favourite for this one IMO. Most of the Australian batsmen - in particular Warner and Clarke - love the place to bits and if England can't put up decent scores on this deck they should be dropped. Or shot. Or both.

    Adelaide has actually produced a high % of results over the last few decades so its rep as a road is overstated. England to drop Trott to 5 as his last chance in tests. Bell to 3. Agree that Eng need a pace boost. Anderson and Broad are still bowling at effective speeds. The Tremlett gamble has failed. His 33 runs per wkt in the 2013 season was an accurate predictor as to how much his form has dropped away. Bring Finn in for the rest of the series. He has the pace England need. Yes he has a history of bleeding runs but he takes wickets and always has. A mistake not to have him in the side for Brisbane. He'd be a greater danger to us coming in behind Anderson and Broad.

    11 days until the second Test. I wonder if their is any possibility that Rogers, Watson and Bailey goes back to Shield Cricket and play the first couple of days, just to get some time in the middle. They could play on 29-30 of Nov and the teams just nominate a like for like for the final two days of the matches. England will be playing a tour game on those 2 days too.

    Yeah just remembered last years. But before that? Seems to often produce results late on in matches.
