Sat and watched the wickets tumbling this morning for the Aussies and it appears they dont have that passion and determination we have seen in the past from Ashes players. They had it in 2005 even though they lost, they still put up a fight, and still wanted to win. Brett Lee, Mcgrath, Warne, Hayden just to name a few put the fear of god into opposing players but no-one other than Mike Hussey can do it now. I know many England fans would disagree but I think its a shame. For years we have been humiliated by the Aussies but now we are doing it to them its a bit uncomfortable. I want to see them put up a bit of a fight at least. I am looking forward to the lads retaining the Ashes but winning them outright on Aussie turf would be truely fantastic.!

Agree chris broad,he would have played 100 tests had I been a selector.likewise dean headily.in the years when the Aussies dominated Graham Thorpe was our top batsman. Unlike some in the sky box,he could leave the ball outside off stump without giving the Aussie slips catching practice. In his early years, Gus fraser had a great record against the Aussies,but like headily, injury robbed him of taking 300 wickets. Let's not forget deadly Devon, today's more consistent selection process would have ensured he had the confidence to be himself and not worry about going for the odd boundary,Steve Waugh openly admitted he used to dance a jig when ILLY and Athers selected steady eddies ahead of him.

Here's one for everyone to ponder. There was one England player in 2005 who really stuck at it. Matthew Hoggard. Even though all the attention was on Flintoff and Jones, Pietersen and Trescothick and Strauss, Hoggy opened the bowling for us and always got us off to a good start, more than once getting early wickets and, also along with Freddie, bowled us back into a strong position at the last test match at the oval. Bearing in mind Australia were persuing 360, 370 odd and were 320 odd for 2. And Hoggy got 4 wickets there. He wasn't as explosive but got the job done and I think was very underappreciated as an England bowler.
