Maybe.... maybe we're not actually that good any more.

500+ to get and Root and Pietersen play shots like that.
Might as well surrender right now.
No balls and not prepared to graft.
Despite a mini revival England are dreadful.
Losers!

Extra.....
I rose to find we were all out for 170+.
A tail of six batsmen who don't muster a handful between them and Johnson creaming himself in delight.
It's a shambles and complete humiliation
Man up or ship out.

Mitch Johnson is on fire.
17 wickets at an average of about 8 so far, and he gets to bowl at Perth next week.
He could turn to crap at any time though. He is the most hot and cold bowler in the game.

I don't understand the shot selection in the slightest. Cook gets out to one going over his head - just duck out of the bloody way!

One day, English batsmen will learn how to bat properly again.

And once again we let the Aussies off the hook after a great start. Where's the ability to finish a team off gone? Dreading tomorrow.

We are fooking useless at bowling, field placing and catching.
We let the opposition play the same shots in the same gaps and never close them and the bowling, tailor made to put through the covers or pull.
Terrible!
5-0
Can't even win a toss ..... they are toss!

If I am any judge it won't take much more for England to give in.
Mice.

And another thing the sight of Root all rigged up in a helmet ducking and cringing like a coward before he even sees where the pull shot is going makes my blood boil.
Would a kitted up Aussie do that?
Mouse!

Lehman has really turned the Aussie side around.

Micky Arthur was the worst coach possible for Australia. He actually dropped our best allrounder for not writing an essay he had given them for homework.

Lehman has got them being aggressive and told them to enjoy themselves.

The turnaround since Arthur was sacked has been massive. It took 3 or 4 tests to get back to a more natural Australian style, but it's great to see.
