You must still be suffering from dreams after your hospital visit, Mike. Another innings defeat in the offing.

Buttler treading on his on Stumps was the icing on the cake.

The other chant is " we are **** and we know we are" repeat ad infinitum

I think it comes from the Chelsea fanzine!

Think you need to replace the "we" with "you" for the chant.

Somehow I don't think calling the Aussies **** is all that convincing when you are 0-2 down!

Oh dear yet another abysmal performance. And Joe Root thinks he will score a century in the series, maybe if you add several innings together. The team is a national embarrassment :whistle:

Solid start by England, Australia 84 for 3. The danger man Labuschagne gone for 1. Small glimmer of hope for England

England 31-4 at the close

51 behind with 6 wickets remaining

Root and Stokes at the crease so a faint glimmer of hope

Don't think there will be a need to set an alarm clock for play on Wed/Thu :whistle:

So far I think I have only heard one session so I am determined to set the alarm for 4am tomorrow morning , hopefully Root will still be batting with a ton in the book or will it be Leach and Anderson hanging on for dear life!
