Well Palace won 2-1 at OT so miracles DO happen and England are 125 for 2 as I write. It's the hope that kills you. So Aus remain strong favourites for me......but ...

H K Rodd is reincarnated.

Magnificent innings by Stokes and superb support from Leach.

In all the excitement I'd completely forgotten who pissed off it makes Snorvey.

Sorry old buddy :cry:

On the contrary Leo, I enjoyed the spectacle - and it's keeps the series alive, which can only be a good thing.

But come on....one decent innings and a knighthood?

Losing.....grasp....on....reality....

But hey. Lizzie gives out the gongs. She's English, so why not?

....not forgetting of course Nathan Lyon fluffing the easiest stumping in history and an appalling LBW decision.

<sigh> It could have all been so different.

I'm not for giving well paid sportsmen honours. So not saying I agree with it but I bet that's what will happen if England win the Ashes.

The 2005 gongs were frankly embarrassing.

Looks like Friday will be a washout. The other 4 days look OK so seeing that, for the most part, the bowlers have dominated, a clear result looks likely.

Great expectation on JA understandably but I do hope Root does not overbowl him. Short fast bursts with him using his ability to vary his pace are key I think. The last thing we need is for him to get injured.

English morale must be good, so I expect another close battle hopefully assuming the English batsmen have learnt to be patient.

Ben Strokes is not the messiah. Out for 1.

So, Ashes gone now?

Yep, fraid so. In all honesty the Oz is a better all round outfit. OK they rely on Smith but who wouldn't? This test has demonstrated their superior bowling attack as well.

Been a good series and I hope England can level it at the Oval.
