As for calling me a whinger, if that had happened to England in Australia you Pom's would initiate some sort of war!
Anyway I still think we can defeat the pommie/umpire team and hold our 75 year ownership of Lords at which point it should be renamed "the Australian Cricket Ground". Aso if you want to see some whinging check this out:
Now that's blaming everone but your own team. I mean I know we played pretty ordinary in the first innings, but at the end of day four the scoreboard should be reading 3 for 313 which would have you guys shitting yourselves. Actually it would be more like 3 for 350.pommie phil in reference to the blame first test wrote:....rests firmly on the shoulders of
A. Our brainless bowlers for continuously bowling wide of the wicket on a track that offered little swing and demanded full straight deliveries. I would have taken a few aussie wickets if i had been playing in this match and i mean that.
B. The ECB for putting money before honour and allowing this match to be played at Cardiff on an unfamiliar wicket prepare by a groundsman who has never prepared a test wicket before. If the match had been played at Old Trafford in front of a passionate Lancashire crowd on a proper test wicket we would have whupped the aussies.

Mate, calling you a whinger is all tongue in cheek. As for going to war if it was England, I doubt it. There is one thing we have had to learn over many many years and thats how to lose against bloody good Australian teams. That is the reason we let you know so much when we are winning. So the more we let you know the bigger the compliment.
