              Hahaha well there has been a lot of issues that have come out during the series with on field bantry with Australian captain Michael Clarke being caught on stump mic as saying to English Medium pacer James Anderson "get ready for a ******* broken arm" during a fiery exchange during the last innings of the first test and countinued threw other test's among Australian and English players. Also there has been a lot of ill feeling with very un sportsman like actions during the three test's with opposition players not applauding individual player achivements etc half centuries (50 Runs) Centuries (100 runs) both sides are guilty of it so there has been a lot of bad feeling between the to sides during the series it has been interesting to watch.

                Couple links to vids of Mitchell Johnson bowling in this series and this stuff is lethal bowling 150 Km/h (90 M/h)

                http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1CMFxm5rhk

                This second vid is the second test in Adelaide on a flat wicket not suited to fast bowling and Mitchel Johnson tore England apart.

                    You only sing when you're winning I see. Seriously though Australia have played very well and our (commonwealth) team has been dreadful. Pietersen in my opinion has been bloody selfish. His ego has got him out 6 times playing 20 20 shots in a test match especially when we've been up against it. Swan has been very poor. I think they were too cocky and thought it would be easy and didn't prepare properly. David Warner is still a though. There's always next time. Congrats Australia. Least you can sing for a change.

                    PS Ignore those Yanks, they don't know about real sport like cricket. You have to concentrate to understand it

                      Actually the result was a real surprise: -to me anyway. On paper the England team seemed far better and they certainly looked the business in the Ashes series in the English summer.

                      I'll have to get to the MCG to view the 4th.Test at some stage, although the initial Boxing Day tickets have all been sold.

                        On paper England is the better side however most of them if not all have played very, very badly. Only one century in the whole series so far compared to Australia's 7. I've never seen such poor shot selection by a supposedly world class side. Swinging wildly over their heads trying to cut obviously tempting bouncers. One by Cook was unbelievable. Reaching out for balls purposely delivered further out of off stump to be caught at gully or slip. Pietersen constantly slogging high into the wind. Really school boy stuff.

                          He'll probably still be a next time too.

                          At the end of the second test something like 19 of the 40 English wickets had fallen to catches on leg. I didn't see much of either English innings in the 3rd, but noted that there were still more soft leg wickets than there should have been. It shows that it's a focus issue more than a talent problem IMO. The need to get back to some real schoolboy basics.

                            An attitude like that certainly explains the current state of English football.
