    A most bold of predictions

    If England can win in Perth, we will retain the Ashes via a series draw.

    So, I predict the outcome of the series will be settled in the next 2 days.
    World XI Since 1990 -

    1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

    Not very bold if you don't put something on the line here

    Will be hilarious if England win the series from here. Would be one of the worst Aussie chokes ever.

    Yeah look, if we manage to win in Perth then we're right back in this and there is no reason at all to think we wouldn't pick up a win in either of Melb or Syd. The big call is whether you are saying we can or will get the win in Perth or not........

    Before a ball was bowled in this return series I posted twice somewhere that we'd win in Perth this time..........but that was before Michael Clarke went all Jihad on us, Mitchell Johnson turned into Thommo the 2nd and our obvious dislike for 150 kph balls at the throat was hopelessly exposed. Last place in the world we want to be playing now based on what we've seen in the first 2 tests would be Perth.

    There is absolutely no logical reason or evidence at all to suggest we will win in Perth.........but I say **** em, I think we will.

    The problem we have is how the hell are we are going to take 20 wickets anywhere, not just in Perth - unless Broad has another hot streak I can't see it happening, which surprises me as I thought that would be the least of our problems. I still think that our batters are capable of getting a decent score, but if they do all that will get us is a draw

    Again this might be blind hope on my part, but I think if our batsmen can manage to bat some time and give our bowler more than a session and a half with their feet up we might just see some more penetrating bowling. Apart from day 1 Brisbane I also thought we bowled well day 1 Adelaide, it was only missed opportunities in the field that saw us lose the honours that day.

    The word I'm getting from my spies is that Tremlett looks a new man in the nets. He was awesome at the WACA last time out and Broad never got to play.

    In summary, England by an innings.

    I thought I spotted Johnny English hanging around the nets during the week.

    Let's get one thing straight first of all. There is no "we" here. You people are not part of the team. You are simply a bunch of internet nobodies who support the English cricket team because you lead very sad existences and/or are some sort of masochists who enjoy getting absolutely pummeled 80% of the time. Either way you have absolutely nothing to do with the team so give the whole "we" thing a rest and avoid further embarrassment.

    Now that we have sorted, no, England will not retain the ashes.

    I think he was probably looking for a different forum
