106 degrees in the old money.
That should be fun.

Meh. Four of six series still ain't bad.

Nothing like looking to the past.

On a personal note there comes a point were anger is replaced by contempt and then comedy.

I'm enjoying it more now as I view it as some bizarre comedy.
Try it, it's just a mindset.
It's really funny the worse it gets.

Cook is like a rabbit in headlights, he's as proactive as the captain of the Titanic.

Just give them the urn now and come home for Christmas, save the embarrassment of a 5-0 whitewash!

Indeed. Ridiculous shot. Bell not much better, either. No need to be aggressive all the time, especially when you're severely on the back foot.

Just think, a few more sensible innings like Stoke's and we'd be looking fairly comfortable.

They are already doing it but when it is 3-0 I can see the Aussies really tearing into the English attack like one day stuff and compound the humiliation.
It may backfire if they do, but there is always such as Haddin to bail them out if it does.
It's the Aussie psyche ...attack!

It's a funny series.
It's not a particularly strong Australian side, and the English side does look pretty strong on paper, but it's like they have no fight in them.
Hopefully they show up and make a game of it in Sydney and Melbourne.

Meh, I can't remember being as apathetic about an Ashes series. The Ashes have become stale, and the poor standard of the cricket has taken some of the shine off it as well. The Aussies deserve it, but I'm not sure anyone in England really cares.

Swann is retiring from all cricket - rats off the sinking ship.
