After 2 tests i knew the worse was to come, this is the worst cricket tour in Englands history full stop.
After so many collapses in the Australian batting order, England has been pathetic. Even by 90's standards.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
It's quite obviously the worst series ever when GIMH is still posting ridiculously optimistic nonsense by predicting a 150 run win for Australia.
At least in 2006/07 we lost to a team that a) was quite possibly the greatest side ever seen on a cricket ground b) having a last hurrah and c) hell bent on revenge after losing the urn for the first time in 18 years.
This Australian top order is still absolutely dreadful. It is a damning indictment on how badly our batsmen have done (and I don't intend to take anything away from Australia's bowling attack which is IMO the best in the world now when I say this) that Australia have strolled to a 5-0 win. I refuse to place much blame on our bowling unit, which by and large has done well enough for England to be competitive throughout the series. Any half decent position England have been in has been utterly wasted by the batsmen.
I sort of agree, have said the bowlers don't deserve too much flak. But it's they who have wasted our dominant positions in every game bar the MCG. That's not been good enough.
It's understandable that the team don't want to be out there any more, but unforgiveable that they make it so ****ing obvious
Our bowling has been **** at times, but it's a hell of a lot harder following 160 ish than 300+.
I didn't bother watching last night, and nearly peed myself laughing when I woke to 155 all out.

Until this match I thought 1989 was the worst. My view now is that, as a complete and utter drubbing by a team with whom we should have been competing on more or less even terms, this is unparalleled.
It really has been a remarkable series, never seen such a brutal destruction of a side, just look at the England side in the last test compared to the first.
Never looked forward to such a long gap between Englan tests before.
