From The Barmy Army -Slip inside Ricky Ponting’s mind
He’s trying to find
Some new players to play
He wants to play his older team
But that’s just a dream
They’re too old to play
He said he’d start a revolution in his head
But he’s been through all the players A to Z
Now there’s just a summertime of doom
If he loses the Ashes race
He is going to lose his place
Losing three would simply tear his heart out
So Ricky can wait
Shane Warne is too late
And there’s no Glenn McGrath
Gilchrist’s had his day
And don’t look back to Langer
He cannot play
Fishbowl was probably bigger than most English grounds too..
Probably influenced by Botham's hilarious 'spot the Aussie' feature at Brisbane on day 5, tbh.Fishbowl was probably bigger than most English grounds too..
It's interesting this bagging of Australian crowds. I'm sure I've seen a lot of matches in England where the grounds are less than full, notwithstanding their small size. There are also thousands less Poms out here this time than the past few tours. Suppose it's the economy there, dunno.
You may have missed the point, not really sure tbh, but I was suggesting that during the Lunch break even those queuing for refreshing beverages from our brilliant climate would heavily out number the sorry number that fill your match box grounds
