A question there though shambles is did I realy have the faith? The truth is to some degree it was "fighting talk" over here and didn't actualy equate to my expected outcome wich was like yours. The other side of that "faith coin" though is that I did believe the capabilty was there within the team.

As for the 280 target, I think on the face of that game, a higher target could have been achievable and certainly looked that way until Flitoff got those 2. There was a point where say 280-3 would not have suprised me... but isn't that just cricket with all it's twists and turns?

Perhaps Jon should have credit for his prediction. For he did have faith and predict an England victory at a time when others (me for one) were a lot less sure and he was only 20 or so runs short of predicting the final total.

Interesting that a side has still to make more than 280 to win. As this run chase was started on the 3rd and and not the 5th - it is a bit surprising.

Well done, Poms. I saw the last finish like that one twenty-odd years ago when Allan Border and Jeff Thomson nearly pulled off an equally unlikely victory at the MCG, and lost by three (again when the fast bowler was caught). There were 20,000 people at the MCG for a day that could have lasted just one ball and went for over an hour.

Thommo's other claim to fame is that he made damn sure Kasper didn't go back to rugby (but I tried!).

Now, who is going to explain this to the hotshot marketing men who decided we needed that Twenty 20 crap?

I bet your blood pressure went up a bit :-)

I know mine did, and the missus saying "come on, we want to go out - bloody cricket" LOL

Great win.

Its not about how many you win by, but have you got the guts to take the pressure.

England proved that they are up with the tops.

Its great to see English bowlers giving the batsman a lot of bruises. Been a long time since we saw England dishing it out. That will make the Aussies think a bit.

"We've GOT to," he said.

I like that. We've got a battle ahead.

The most exciting Test Match Ever!
What a tail end fight back and what excitement.
We did however make it difficult for ourselves with a bad second innings batting performance and the result was that we were lucky to win.The fighting spirit of this team pulled us through.This will be a big moral boost to the lads and it would not suprise me now if we pulled of an Ashes win.
Warne and Flintoff were the stars and it was a shame that they both did not get man of the match awards.
A great win over a great team.

May I remind you Shambles the word Scotch is whisky, the people from Scotland are called SCOTS

You may indeed remind me but perhaps I can remind you that this is a thread about cricket and England even had a Scotch captain once.

As a resident in Scotland for twelve years I do not need reminding that (some) folk in Scotland do not like to be referred to as Scotch.*Smiles*

And I have (in the earlier thread) made the point that many English people do indeed support the sporting endeavours of the Scotch and Welsh.


I think that had Australia won - Warnes contribution to that victory would have made him man of the match. As England won - it was Flintoff's individual contribution to that victory that deserves to makes him the man of the match. Without his 73 and those sixes - there would have been no match.

Nice to see him console Bret Lee at the end. That probably sealed it

I get annoyed by the racing too but I can remember at least one occasion where they did manage to delay going over because of the state of the game. If they have to do it, wish they did it the other way round and make those with the satelite equipment (for Film 4?) watch the horse racing. I gather the cricket goes elsewhere next year which I think, even alowing for horse racing and ads, is a bit of a shame as I have liked thier coverage.

Rain at Old Trafford eh? My bet with myself for the series was 3-1 to Australia with 1 draw. Perhaps that one will be the draw then...

Scotch is an adjective and can be applied to anything. It just so happens that some tight arsed Scotch Presbyterians don't like to be compared to whisky. Read your Burns Tam the man and you'll find there are Scotch lawyers as well as Scotchmen ... lighten up.

Perhaps a word for the umpires (it is a good job they are not Scotch)?

Seeing their decisions subject to slo-mo and all the other gadgets and gizmos - the surprising thing is not that that they may sometimes get it wrong (in the spit seconds they have) but how often they are shown to be right.

There are of course some good and not so good decisions but they do tend to cancel each other out.
