Sorry, welderman.
Fair comment scoundrel, on both players..
we all know the nightmare ian bell had in 2009, but in his own words
"I have a point to prove"
as for trotty, 2009 on debut. in the 5th test. 41 in the 1st innings then an amazing 119 in the second..

Fantastic knock by Captain Strauss-lets not forget that Australia won a game so they can build on it, but its worth noting that an Aussie paper said that Australia were in disarray while England were calm and enjoying their cricket. All I can say is Bring It On! and Pietersen please shave that silly moustache off!

I was in Australia in 1986, when the aussie press were slagging of the the English Squad..Bill Athey and Jack Richards..{Bill who and Jack who}.Check your records, Both played their part...
P.S I was at the Sydney cricket Ground when Allan Lamb scored 18 0ff 5 balls, and lying on Bondi Beach when Beefy opened the batting in Perth {without a helmet} and scored 76 in around 40 balls...

He didn't do too badly with the bat either. The problem for us is that when he gets his England call up; next year we'll be short of experienced players for the county champs.
C'mon you Bears.

Yeah Man ..I see what your saying..Wickets might well be a problem, but with the likes of Boyd Rankin, Neil Carter and rikki Clarke all chipping away who knows....
We do need bowling cover that is for sure..
on a brighter note we have 2 new Batsmen in Laurie Evans and Irish captain..William Porterfield..

This was the last series win by England v Australia for 18 years. England possessed very experienced middle order players, their openers, Athey and Broad, exceeded expectations, the England seam attack outperformed the raw and relatively unblooded Australian seamers (only Bruce Reid really bowled well for Australia) and John Emburey demonstrated that an orthodox right arm finger spinner can be highly effective in Australian conditions.

After a really disappointing 1985 tour of England, the Aussies had devoted care and effort to rebuilding and they were quite confident. But the tone was set on the first day of the first test: Ian Botham put on his serious head and played (for me) the most polished and mature innings of his career. His shot making was superb, his scoring rate very quick, but every shot was authentic and full of concentration. His 138 was the bedrock of the England 456 and sent a message that Australia's bowlers held no fears for the England batting. So much of cricket is played inside the heads of the batsman and the bowler in their personal duel, and Botham seemed invincible that day, getting out in the end to the very first loose shot of his intensely disciplined innings. The innings also demonstrated the huge importance of a good start, of being prepared inside your head; Botham did not say "Lets stop talking and play some cricket." He said nothing; he let his bat do the talking.

We need some of this from our team now.

I hope this series is a close one. While I enjoyed our 5-0 whitewash the last time England was here I prefer to see a close contest. Hopefully our boys will do us proud. If not we'll have to step up our Don Bradman reanimation program.
