    How does Hoggard feel now about his pre match comments?

    BWAHAHAHAHA.

    That was a BIG mistake.

    Especially given the fact that not only did both bowl like genius' but then compounded by the fact that Hoggard had a poor match, and was the worst of the English seamers.

    Pretty stupid, I'd suggest. It's one thing for McGrath to target Strauss and Vaughan when he can back it up, another to criticise the best bowler in the world and then have him rip your team apart while you bowl tripe. I quite like Hoggard as a bowler and I'm sure he's not that much of a fool all the time, but he sure looks like one right now.

    As the saying goes "let ur actions do the talking" but in Hoggards case he didnt and he's been made to look like an idiot... maybe he will learn for furture matches not to say something and then not be able to back it up

    But in all seriousness, he must feel like the biggest tool. For someone of his average at best skill level to suggest the things he did is extremely stupid and shows arrogance on his behalf. I would love to see him get carted all over the park and end up with figures of 0 for 200 next match

    Yeh he was really stupid to say what he did about the best player and team in the world.. but he knows that he was wrong now (hopefully)... King figures of 0 for 200 is a bit far fetched lol try 0 for 150

    That's what it comes down to. As annoyed as the English might be when Australia say things, THEY BACK IT UP

    So even if you disagree with it, fine but it doesn't fall into the same catagory as what Hoggards done.

    What Hoggard did just came across as so forced and smacked of desperation. It just heaped more pressure on him, given his already poor record v Aus.

    Backfired bigtime.

    Maybe he honestly thought that McGrath was past it... tho he wouldnt be the best player in the world if he was... Or he said that to put more pressure on to McGrath knowing that he would want to go out there and prove him wrong and the Hoggard hoping that with the pressure he would be proved right...

    Probably the same as the whole England team at the moment.

    Whatever he said was just hype, just like this thread is just anal gloating. Australia are by far the best team in the world which is why I predicted 4-0 in the predictions thread.

    There'll be many more out of the woodwork before the end of the series I fancy.

    I have some empathy for Hoggard, 'cause I feel a bit of a fool after my pre-match predictions that he would be the leading English wicket-taker in the series.
