Nobody’s ever made 3.5 not out.

I THINK HE’D BETTER LEAVE RIGHT NOW!

Lovely stuff. Very happy or Lawrence, who now has a very healthy test bowling average

BBC live text basically unreadable this morning. Staffers and public comments declaring we’ve already lost the ashes, will lose at least two by an innings, this is the worst England side ever. All actual comments in the last 15 minutes. Granted it’s not been great but we haven’t actually lost yet and were missing several of our world class players. Get so bored of the “We’re the worst” arms race.

Yeah, it seems like if a team isn’t like 80s Windies or 00s Aus then ‘it’s just not good enough’

One person claimed we can’t bowl. The team with two of the three highest wicket taking fast bowlers of all time. Can’t bowl.

James bracey is having a seriously bad time of it, that’s for sure though

I think the drop off in fielding standards is having a big effect on people’s perceptions too.

Went to Edgbaston yesterday and eventually felt like Indiana Jones.

Also missed Wood’s cameo with the bat due to being late in. Besides that, was a good day.

It looked like we’d miraculously limited the damage but of course we can’t shift 10 or 11 on the slog.

Ah, fuck.

It’s OK. Crawley’s in now to keep things tight.

Fuuuuuuuu

Really hope Crawley gets a score here (sorry in advance) not just for today but for his career, because for all the low scores he’s had, he looked SO good in that innings. Surely someone who can play that 267 can be a test batsman?

crawley having the same test career as his hero, rob key would be ironic

Well he’ll have to prove it in a few years time you suspect.

Shit the bed.

These lot don’t want to miss the footy tomorrow.

loathe to get all body language expert about it but bracey looks fucking terrified all the time
