    Na there's no tasting ever with Johnson. Johnson's so erratic even his ability to make people taste it can't be trusted.

    Nah you need to learn the definition of taste itbt.

    If all things go to plan injury wise, this should be Johnson's last test match, even if he gets 8 in the last innings.

    This thread was clearly the most cunning reverse jinx in the history of Australia.

    Yep. The problem with Johnson is that his best is further removed from his worst than almost any other bowler I can recall. And his worst is ****ing dire.

    Stuey MacGill stiff opposition you'd think.

    Nah, no way was MacGill ever as dire or as brilliant as Johnson.

    Johnson is either insanely good or insanely bad, which drives me insane watching him.

    Macgill was every bit as brilliant as Johnson can be.

    You make it sound like MJ is the only bowler to ever rip through a team.

    I thought it was a case of a guy who is occasionally so brilliant being so bad.

    I guess he is close to Fidel Edwards on that front as he has 165 wickets in 55 tests which is ordinary yet has 12 5'fers in his career. A definite case of boom or bust there.
