    Most galling Ashes loss

    Yes none of these compare to England's losses in the same timeframe, but still some of these losses were pretty terrible.
    5-0

    The first 5-0 was almost acceptable as we were injury ravaged taking on an all time great team with revenge in mind. The last one down under was terrible as we had comfortably won the series just a few months before.

    If I was an Aussie i'd probably put this one on a par with 10/11 as the defeats have been so comprehensive each time.

    Our last Ashes whitewash is miles worse, although another hammering at the Oval would make this stand alone terrible from an Aussie perspective imo.

    I would think that losing at home (especially when that loss is as big a hammering as 2010/11 was) has to be the worst. I think it is the one i would vote for as the best from an England perspective.

    When you lose at home what have you got to fall back upon?

    I think it would have to be the 2010-11 one.. As bad as 60 all out is, it is still something that happens to a lot of teams overseas.

    I'm disappointed at the extent of the loss this series, but not surprised at the loss itself. I thought Australia would win this series, but certainly didn't believe all the pre-series talk that they were certainties given how poorly a lot of the blokes had batted in England before.

    Still think 10-11 was the worst series loss I can recall since the 80s.

    At least 10/11 was a loss against an England side at the peak of their powers and with quality cricketers throughout the 11. The current England team is carrying some serious passengers (and in the latest test missing their best player), and yet they're still absolutely pummeling the Aussies.

    Most of the pre series talk had Harris in the side to be fair...

    10-11 at home. 2015 // 2005 are close too.

    10/11 being at their peak of their powers is not an accurate description of both side coming IN to the series. Obviously in hindsight it is but I'd expect this side to be rated higher in 2-3 years time too (see root as the #1 batsman for example.) I could also see some revisionism about the quality of the side coming in going on (Johnson may never run through a side again for example).

    2011 surely. Not only a torrid anal hammering, but the only England win in Australia in the last 28 years , and inbetween two whitewashes
