As England lick their wounds from a humiliating 7 and a bit session defeat to "An average Aussie bowling attack", England national selector Geoff Miller has refused to rule out recalling Surrey batsman Mark Ramprakash for the decisive fifth Ashes Test at The Oval.

A season average of over 100 for Surrey but hasnt played for England since 2002.

A lot of the recent former players say England should not re-jig the side too much with as many 5 players positions with a ? over it. Cook, Bopara, Bell, Harmison, Onions, with Anderson and Swann being criticised for poor performances with the ball. 5 of those 7 have been sent back to their County sides for match practice (Anderson and Harmison still with England).

There were so many glaring mistakes in that 2 day test match it was amateurish and laughable. When pundits praise Broad and Swann for "excellent knocks" in this situation then you know you have problems.

News on Flintoff better come in the next few days or just rule him out now. As Australia showed - if you bowl enough good balls in the right conditions you will take wickets.

And as I finish typing Anderson and Flintoff both expected to play.

Worst thing that came out of this last test match was Broad got wickets.

While it was a terrible performance, this lot arnt the first to have a bad match.

Oval will be full of runs - If we can get a score - I still believe if we pick the right attack we can bowl them out twice for less than 500runs in a match.

Not at the Oval I fear. It is a batsmans paradise that always sees draws. We will bat "well" and all will be forgotten when we post a 450, with no batsman really going on to make a big one.

Then we will be shown how to do it as the Aussies post 700 and put the game and the urn safe, with Ponting and Clark at the least making centuries. Then if anybody is taking 20 wickets, its them not us.

Thats assuming we bat first.

If not, they make the 700 and we probably crumble, losing 20-550 and lose by an innings....again.

Or...we could try having faith...
