2010/11 was better than both.

Simon Jones the difference. 05 would win imo.
The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
The current side would hammer the 2005 side.
I dunno about that. The 05 side had a better attack all round, even accepting Swann > Giles. They had a five man attack which could make merry with the current line up, which didn't pass 400 iirc in the just completed series on pretty dry decks.
None of Broad, Swann or Bresnan would cause the 05 Australian batting line up to raise a sweat.
Broad at his best would. The Broad of the Durham Test this summer, or V India in 2011. And he's a better bowler than Harmison.
Similarly, whatever you think of Swann, he'd do better than 10@57 a la Giles.
