Did the umpires get bood, or were they shouting Boon?

I thought that the umpires were really good this series.

Total and utter capitulation. Canít field, canít bat, canít bowl.

I always want England to win of course, but I suppose the one positive of the series ending like that is there is no hiding place now.  Having scraped a draw in the last test, had they somehow managed to get a result in this one, they would have waffled on about how they improved and will take that into the next series etc. etc.

The nature of the defeat today though means there can be none of that and they will all have to face serious questions.

Only positive I can take from the Ashes is that it wasn't 5 0 which is what I anticipated to be. :(

And so it ends just as it began... Capitulation and humiliation.  I await the ECB's considered review...

Ok, let the post-mortem begin.  Start with Silverwood being ditched, sharpish.  Our preparation was diabolical but there are no excuses for the batting collapses.  Embarrassing defeat and I imagine Root will also step down.

Terrible stuff, probably good it ended like that as thereís no hiding from how bad it is.

Silverwood has to go and I think Root will survive as captain due to a lack of credible options.

Our batting has been in decline for several years, itís reached a new low on this tour but itís no massive surprise that itís been so poor.

Yep, that's how I see it.

The only other options as captain of Stokes and Buttler. It's too much to ask of the former and the latter isn't worth his place in the side at the moment.

Silverwood had to go, Giles will be under pressure, Root has to lose the captaincyÖ.unfortunately the money grabbing scumbags at the ECB will all survive the cull. 

Root was spot on in saying any England test success is despite county cricket rather than because of itÖ.nothing good comes of playing proper cricket in April & late September in UKÖ.bin the E number snacks nonsense BS competition & play Blast & 50 over around the proper gameÖ.test cricket is king & always should be

Giles has made some terrible decisions, not least amalgamating the coach and selector roles. He should go, heís utterly failed. Silverwood should go, but I have some sympathy - he was the wrong choice in the first place, but heís been given absolutely no chance because of the role heís been given.

Getting rid of Coach/Captain etc is like rearranging the deck chairs. There is not much they can do when they have no international class cricketers to select.  So how about playing some serious red ball cricket and making Test team the top priority?

It's a fair point Aftab, I think it goes deeper.  They need to split the roles of one day and test for me too.  Paul and Gareth are also correct about playing red ball cricket at the worst times in England.  The whole season should be restructured and there is absolutely no reason, if it is done properly, that they could combine both formats at the same time.

It is like rearranging the deckchairs however all is too cosy in the England camp, itís a mates culture when you hear players calling the coach by nickname.  They need a coach who wants to coach not be their drinking buddy for nights out.  Kirsten seems a logical choice, get him in and put a bomb under the test side, toughen up these players

Who was it that predicted we wouldn't score 300 across the whole series? Fair play that man or woman.
