Ashes to Ashes

Bollocks anyway.

You're Day 1 analysis is a rather verbose offering. Get to the point!

They've scored over 800 runs and our bowlers have not taken 10 wickets yet....
Fair play to Ponting. There's loads of time left and he's properly grinding us into the dirt.

I never expected the Aussies to enforce the follow-on with that number of days/sessions remaining... they usually bat again under those circumstances and rest their bowlers before the next onslaught.

Terrible performance from England with bat and ball. Apart from Flintoff, the rest of the bowlers are toothless.

England won't recover from 1-0 down this time around either. It'll end up 4-1 or 5-0.

Picking Giles and Jones screams of panic and negativity. I don't think this Aussie side is as good as the one beaten last year. We've gone backwards.

That said, Australia got a massive boost when Watson was ruled out through injury.
