    Anderson or collingwood for thursdays test?

    although its harsh on collingwood i see his selection as being very negative and gives the impression that england are playing for a draw. Despite it being a huge gamble i would go for anderson, with it going to rain a fair bit the match looks like it will be a draw anyway, and with teh weather being the way it is the cloud cover gives anderson the chance to really swing the ball as that is his main weapon (and deadly it is to when it works)

    who would everyone else have ?

    collingwood or anderson?

    There's already a thread for this - perhaps it could be turned into a poll to make it more useful?

    Mods please take note.

    Picking Collingwood may be playing for a draw, but picking Anderson is like playing for a speedy loss...

    Well they'd both come below:

    1) (A fit) Andy Caddick;
    2) Chris Tremlett; &
    3) Dominic Cork

    in my book. However, of the two, much as it's the conservative, pessimistic call, I'd go for the little ginger Mackem. I cannot see for the life of me a reason to recall Anderson now, aside from his (surely soon to be withdrawn) central contract.

    I can see arguments for both sides.

    Either way, screw it - I ain't worrying. Whatever Big Dunc calls is all right by me.

    echo Barney and Neil, just as long as Fletcher and Vaughan go with who they think will be best to regain the ashes, and aren't influenced by media or Aussie tongue wagging

    I think that's a given, does anyone take anything the Aussies say seriously?

    My view is keep the winning formula and play James, I can't see Colly doing much against Warne tbh. I do like him and he's got guts, a world class fielder to boot, but feel he may be found out against the Aussies. James can swing the ball at pace, which is a great gift.. He can bowl magic balls and tripe, bit like Blee I suppose in that regard.

    Going to have to go with the man to keep the shape the same.

    Of course, if Collingwood would like to be named 12th man though...

    For me this is a no brainer. Who would the Aussies rather come up against?

    I'll tell you ......... Collingwood

    This whole series has been about the England pace attack dominating the Aussie batting lineup with SUSTAINED pressure. To do so. England have relied on FOUR quicks.

    It's not like Australia's attack where they can afford to throw the ball to Warne after 12 overs.

    I think you'd find Australia would be more than happy to come up against Collingwood or Giles after 12 overs on day 1. Talk about releasing the pressure !

    As for lengthening the batting to save a game.......I can show you a thousand examples where this has backfired (at Grade level at least).

    Uh-huh. That's exactly it.
