In ihrem Blute steckt ein Speer
Bluten leise in das Meer

Ashes starts tonight down under. Anyone putting their sleeping schedule in the bin to watch it rain in Brisbane?

Should be back home in time to watch a bit of the first session with 3 points in the bag.  Smiley
BT Sport though?
Not sure how Fletch, Jenas, Rio et al will handle the commentary.
Badly probably.

I actually quite like the look of their team - no Atherton and no Hussain obviously as they're contracted to Sky, which is a real shame but a lot of quite interesting people involved in the BT coverage rather than just the usual loudmouths - Butcher, Trott, Moeen Ali and Harmison are on the group. Might be a bit awkward with them not being there, but willing to give it a go.

The looks like a good lineup.
I know that Butcher will be very good & the rest will know what they are talking about.

This England team must score less than 200 more regularly than any other one in my lifetime, surely even the 90's one scratched 200 together more frequently.  Other than Root when in the mood and form, nobody ever looks in control when batting.

There's something vaguely comforting about waking up to a calamitous performance in Aus. The world may change, but you can rely on some things.

It makes me feel quite nostalgic. For most of my 20's we lost every ashes series and, particularly in Australia, there was no realistic expectation that we'd do anything but lose.

Rob's right though, even in those days the innings average was high 200s and sub 200 scores tended to be limited to second innings when the Aussies had piled on 500 plus and the situation was hopeless.
