Hohns says Neville wasn't selected as keeper because "he wasn't making enough runs".

Paine who wasn't even keeping for Tassie recently gets a guernsey and promptly drops a dead-set sitter off Lyon just when we needed a wicket.

Next thing you know Hohns will be saying that someone like Shaun Marsh could be dropped for the Adelaide test because he wasn't taking enough wickets.  Ermm  Clown

What with the incessant appealing of the Australians, and the commentators on 9, don't see myself bothering with much cricket this summer.

Few of us find the Aussies "appealing" per se.

But we still want them to flog the poms.

Listening to much of the Slater drivel would have me in need of Judge Holden's dysphoria psychiatrist mates.

Steve Smith and Cummins may have injected some interest and faith back into this Series.
What a top Man is Steve.

I recall going to the Gabba when the West Indies great sides of the 70's and 80's toured, got bored watching it, similarly when the poms were playing against Thomson and Lillee, I haven't got the attention span to watch even the best of test cricket.

MAX , You are a brainy Man .       . I watch Nothing direct.    Tape everything ,     2 at a time ....    NO ADDS.     . I haven't seen an add since they were selling Fur Coats .( always sus as to where the fur was coming from )
   

But I watch Current Affairs in 4 minutes.       The Fiji Football last night in about 10 minutes.       It's called Modern Technology.
   I must confess I do spend some time on the Trivago adds ... I fancy the beauty queen there.

How much medication did you need Cabo.     .To sit through 6 days of watching " cars in neutral" would need powerful tranquilisers .

They're off on the run down the straight.

The Poms scored well 1st 2 overs.        > Appears to be plenty of runs on offer so the pitch is standing up.     2 for 50 at this stage.

The only Bancroft I know is Anne (still have daydreams about The GraduateHeart)

... but if Justin Langer reckons he's as tough as any player he knows, I'll have him in my team!Thumbs Up

Went to the Sydney test last Ashes series and when the Poms are doing well, the Barmy Army are more annoying than that mosquito on a summers night!Angry

You can appreciate what they bring to the series when we are whipping their asses though ... cant help laughing when they sing "God Save YOUR Queen"! (Malcolm and the other socialists must just quiver with rage!)LOL

Joel Garner and Viv walking home to their hotel across the Harbour Bridge after a big night out - still rates as one of my favourite jokes everLOL - I'm sure JA would know it, he should tell it at his next presser, he'll get a massive swing in his favor!Thumbs Up

Unreal how life is so different .   Glued to an old radio with poor crackling reception.      The day War was declared The English announced an urgent message =    Tragedy strikes The Empire ,   Hutton is out for a Duck " ( yoke yoyce )
We had nothing better to do but I'm sure life was more simple and much happier.
