    In previous years the MCG has been pretty flat but has had some variable bounce as it wears. I don't expect this to change much.

    Is anyone else feeling sorry enough for Cook that they are hoping he gets a big hundred in this test (proviso being that England still lose)? He has been a player that I have loved to fail, but secretly admired. It was tough watching Ponting at the end, and even though Cook is an Englishman (vomit) I'd hope to get one last gem from him.

    Bollocks imo.

    This Smith-led side doesn't strike me as one sub-consciously content with the series win. They'll want 5-zip.

    Bill Lawry in and Kevin Pietersen out already makes this game more inviting.

England will somehow contrive to keep in the game before collapsing.

    Well certain England punters are giving England a good chance based solely of the potential unavailability of Mitchell Starc

    They do tease these Australians - we'll doubtless be told next that Smith has a touch of indigestion and is doubtful for Boxing Day

    Turns out that consuming so many of Broad's pies clogs up the system.

    I do realise England cannot just say, ''yes we're shite'' - especially with two tests looming - but these type of interviews are a bit ridiculous,

    As an England fan, Melbourne and Sydney are always my favourite tests. For some reason we save those two for not playing like arseholes. Surely we can nick a 1-4 for a party back at Trafalgar Square?
