    I really didn't think we'd take a beating like this after being in two great positions to win.

    Pathetic.

    The trouble is we did and you could always see it happening as the weaknesses in the side are as clear as day.

    I couldn't really see it at 122-8 on the first day, but when Australia started their second innings and knocked off our 90-run lead with relative ease at around 4 an over (sure, they lost 3 wickets but they were scoring too freely for my liking), I could see it then. I couldn't believe Win Viz was giving England a 70% chance of winning on Saturday night with Smith still at the crease at stumps.

    Should be fun. We went 75 years without beating Australia at Lords between 1934 and 2009, although we have won 2 of our last 3 against them there since. Got battered by them last time out though
