Here's a chance for us to look back and prove how right we were.
Australia win 2-1
i would put a score but i don't understand cricket.
England 345-9, Australia 7234-2
i expect some money.
It'll be a draw. I've gone from thinking that they will win to building up some crazed sort of optimism from out of nowhere. I think I just stared at a picture of Monty for too long. Seriously, he's got mesmerising eyes that fella.
IF certain England players have big series' then I see no reason why we can't draw the series but they are big IFs.
I'm going for 3-1 Australia but one test will be particularly close and could go England's way to make it 2-2.
In other words, I have no idea. I can't wait to find out though.
It'll be a blow if Bell isn't fit on Thursday.
I might have a pyjama party
Good. Sans tutu worries me.
Desmond Tutu there will be no party

I'll bring drinks. And I have some lovely pyjamas.
by an innings and between 1 and 6 wickets
To the aussies...Have you heard Knobhead Fletcher's gonna play Ashley 'no wickets' Giles ahead of Mount Panesar? What a loon! Way to go on the defensive before we've even started. Crazy motherfucker!
batsman though, so it could be seen as attacking in that sense. Especially as it seems that the first pitch won't really be suited to a spinner. It's a difficult decision.
because Fletcher is worried we'll not get enough runs in the top order so he's trying to eek them out in the tail...how bad an attitude is that? Anyways Giles is never gonna take more than 2/3 wickets in an innings, Panesar could take 5+...is that worth less than 20/30 extra runs? i think not. You wouldn't see the aussies employing this kind of mentality...we're shooting ourselves in da foot.
on a series draw at 9-1
Am a bit worried about the middle order in the first test though, if Bell's out it leaves it quite exposed.
and rumour has it he'll sit out the first test...
I will kiss you.
Whether you like it or not. Don't try and stop me.
win 5-0 I'm having a sex party and EVERYONE'S INVITED!
Make Pigfoot's day!
He only hugged me, and you get an entire kiss. My life feels so empty :(
Whoever wins the first test win win the series, simple as that. I can't see England coming from behind for some reason, probably owing to the inexperience of playing in Oz that virtually the whole team has.
If Cook, Panesar, Jimmy A and Bell can be at the top of their games, and everyone else brings their usual big match form, then all will be well, but I can't see it happening.
I'm holding out for a tied series though.... which completely contradicts my opening statement.
...England can beat anyone if they play how they all can, but we've not got the annoying bat-out-the-month players that Australia have, which is my major concern.
I can't wait
Jay got 9-1 on a draw ^ up there. You were robbed.
I reckon we'll go 1-0 down in the first test, pull it back to 1-1, draw at Perth, lose at Melbourne and win heroically at Sydney to retain the Ashes. Yeah.
as long as someone somehow manages to make Warne look like a twat, I'll be happy. I don't know why I hate him so, i think its just his sly digs in interviews I don't like. That and that he's a fat knob who gets too many English batsmen out.
Ricky Ponting I like, but laughed when he went mad last time round. More of that, but with Warne to laugh at, please.
I like Warne, but don't much like Ponting and his antipodean wasp chewing face.
