    Baseless?

    Baseless was the wrong word. I should have said "blind optimism". You've definitely got grounds to be optimistic, but I get the feeling that even if you didn't, you would be anyway.

    I'm looking forward to a year in which no team, however victimised they might feel, takes matters into their own hands and refuses to come out and play. Realism is not a word I understand.

    No I understand that, and I am not questioning him getting ecstatic over a draw in England... but it's just that WC means so much more to me.

    I want to believe you SS, I really do.

    But surely winning the World Cup would mask the fact that there are problems with your Test team?

    Not to these people though.

    Obviously that's for the Ashes, but you get the point.

    Yea, WC is nice and everything.

    But really nothing would match winning or drawing in England, unless we do it in Australia. Same in SA as well. I'll trade you all the world cups you want for that.

    I'll swap you WC87 for our away victory in SA 04-05

    Only kidding. Would only swap THAT victory for one thing. No prizes and all that...
