Yes we can! Fitting that it was Broad as well.

Has to be said though that it was pathetic from Australia, total capitulation.

And to think there were genuinely people wanting Broad dropped for this test.

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Joe average for a dozen tests then just explodes into brilliance, highly talented but just does not try all the time IMHO

But by Christ pretty boy turned it on today

Typical 'pretty boy' tbh, when thing aren't quite going his way is when he's most dangerous.

Without a shadow of doubt one of the worst australian sides in my living memory. I actually feel a pang of sympathy for the Aussie supporters. can anybody name a worse Aussie side?

No sympathy i'm afraid, they just make their own problems, they have a few good players who can be match winners but they don't work together as a team, this is where we differ, someone always tends to stick the hand up and lead from the front.

I still smart at the beatings we took under Ponting and Waugh so another 20 years of total domination may make things even in my mind.

Tough one, we really want to crush them 4-0 to make the Aus trip easier but as you say we could blood some of the fringe players, I expect one or two with injuries/niggles may be rested and i can see Bell having a rest and maybe Jimmy.

Like to have seen Onions play but i think his England career is over now, may try an new bowler on a bouncy Oval track or another spinner, return of the Monster?

Fifth test starts today. A dead rubber but it would still be nice to make it 4-0 and demoralise them a bit more given how close the next series is. I'm hoping to see better from Cook and Trott especially.

Can we still do this? Probably not but it would surely destroy they Aussie's mentally if we did. :)
