    Totally outclassed us, well played.

    At least our lot don't start crying when they win a series though.

    Couldn't watch the final rites but heck, well played Australia. The natural order is restored, now get down to Africa so we see the real top two bash it out.

    For me, the Ashes is everything in international cricket. From my POV we could beat every other team home and away, but it wouldn't matter to me as much as winning the Ashes does. It's just about the oldest rivalry in sport, and from an Australian perspective to bore it up the oldest enemy is the thing which matters most. I don't even think an Australian team would consider themselves successful unless they hold the Ashes. It means that much. It isn't that winning them makes you a great or even a very good side, but I don't think you can be a very good or great side unless you have them.

    It's very gracious of Corrin to open this thread because, although he's a ****, I know he pretty well feels the same way I do. Fair play to him, and in fact to most all of the England fans, who have been very decent for the most part through both series, aside from talk about stick shifts. There's been a bit of aggro (my OTT rant during the first test included), but it's nothing like what you get in the threads when the lesser nations are playing. For that we can all be grateful.

    Well said Burgey. Bring it on in 2015 when we get the urn back.

    The astonishing thing for me as a neutral was how quickly it happened.

    Boom
    Aus won the first test: "Well that's an interesting development! Hey, I always thought Johnson would do better as part of a more consistently threatening attack!"

    Boom
    Aus bowlers destroyed England's first innings on a flat Adelaide pitch.

    "WTF. Ummm, are England going to figure this out in time, or at all?"

    Boom
    England's batsmen destroyed again.

    "Nope, they're not. This series is over. Wow."

    The third test seemed to go by more as a formality than anything.

    Just such a brutal, shocking kill.

    Well done Australia. I'm sick to the pit of my stomach but that was a serious, old school flaying and a ruthless exhibition of skill. To come back from 3-0 a few months ago is remarkable. Enjoy, ****s.

    This was only the third Ashes series I have followed. Despite hoping for a battle, ideally a 3-2 fight decided in the last match, Im glad Australia have won. Its now 2:1 for England in my Ashes reckoning. Well played Clarke & the gang.

    Thank you mate, very sporting of you. Looking forward to the next clash over your way (after we win this 5-0 of course ).

    Just to remind, the series tally is still at 3-3 after eight Tests.

    Might want to replace your clutches.

    Yeah well done Australia, have been brilliant and it's been excellent cricket to watch, not that I have enjoyed it or anything.

    Amen to Burgeys post......so ****ing true!!

    I had a fair idea before the first of these 10 tests were played that the Aussies would hold the urn at the end of them.......but never in my wildest imagination did I think it would be this ruthless and convincing!! I can't possibly see how you could have played these 3 tests any better.

    All respect to the worthy winners and my special note to Michael Clarke.......what a gem you ****s have got in him!! Outstanding player, outstanding captain, and I love to know what those ****wits that booed him in Sydney 3 years ago reckon of him now

    Today hurts it really does, but hats off to you blokes and bring on 2015!!

    Yeah congratulations, very well deserved. Total domination in all aspects, we look a million miles away from them for the foreseeable future.
