    A bouncer from Tommo

    From the BBC website:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/4437317.stm

    We're ****e; Australia are great & will embarrass us. He's especially (& unduly TBH) harsh on Hoggy.

    Is he for real or is this just part of the long, tedious mental disintegration process?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    its just more stupid aussie banter which i doubt any of them really believe to that extent, they just all seem to be so arrogant or ignorant of anything englaind do, although in fairness justin langer has been very sportting in his comments,

    what tommo has just said is more trash in my opinion, we will see more in the coming weeks, im not sure how much of it the aussies belive themselves let alone anyone else.

    more mental disintegration methinks, lets hope hes made to eat his words.

    So it wasn't a rocket scientist who pointed Australia's superiority out to all of us.. Merely some tw*t haired crim... Nice one Thommo, your spot on, now go and take a seat..

    I need some convincing that he isn't spot on.. Hoggard isnt a net bowler, thats just rubbish.. but Im looking at 4-0? Depends on the weather maybe

    South Africa used to be a much stronger side than they are now, and they were beaten 5-1 home and away?
    England have progressed a long way without doubt, but Australia play a different game to everyone else in world cricket..

    i would like to think that england would be able to take at least one test of the aussies some way or another, after all the west indies did it when australia last toured there and they were no means a great side, of course they relied heavily on lara for a pivotal innings, but theyre bowlers were nothing special, i seem to remember lawson taking the majority of their wickets in the match that they won.

    england will probably win a test, but australia should wrap up the series pretty convincingly...

    Right or wrong, Thommo is far from the sharpest knife in the box. I wouldn't take him too seriously, or let him anywhere near a commentary box ever again.

    Ah well. He's paid to have an opinion, however outlandish, and can say what he likes. If England have any sense they'll laugh it off. They've let Aussie verbals cost them too many series.

    Everyone knows Tommo likes to portray a tough guy image. He's so full of **** and wind. Easier for him to just bash the Poms, rather than provide a considered, thoughtful analysis. Too much effort for Tommo.

    I think Thommo and few other pundits are in for a surprise this Ashes series, and I feel some are putting themselves at the front of the queue to eat humble pie !!

    Thommo's own "mental disintegration process" has been pretty long and tedious, given that he started out as "simple" and is working on reaching "dumb as f**k".

    No offence to Thommo intended.
