I think it's pretty clear we're in decline. It was bound to happen after dominating for so long. I doubt we'll see us struggle to beat Zimbabwe or Bangladesh on a consistent basis, but against the higher quality teams we will struggle a fair bit.
Can see us going through the summer 6-0 however.

The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
Nah, they are and will continue to remain the top three. I think in fact this is close to the bottom as they'll get, which is pretty scary for the rest of the world really. Their domestic system is too good.

When was the last time we lost 2 Ashes series in a row? Not since the 1980's, when we were useless.
1, the 1980s is only a couple of decades ago;
2, Australia haven't lost 2 Ashes in a row, they've lost 2 out of 3;
3, The Ashes isn't the be-all-and-end-all;
4, only once previously in Australian cricket history did they win in England as often as they did 1989-2001, and that was in the Bradman era. Aside from that, there was only ever the odd victory here and there.
In the manner of Bill Shankly:-
I agree with Richard - the Ashes are much more important than that
