They got a parade when they won. If they lose the ashes and don't improve performances, they should be made to do a slow walk of shame down right down The Mall and into Buckhingham Palace to have their MBEs ripped off by Prince Phillip. Hoggard, Collingwood and perhaps Bell would be excused.

What a bloody great idea.

Could we take rotten fruit and veg to contribute to proceedings?

(Let's face it if they threw it back at us Anderson, Giles and Harmison wouldn't hit us)

Yes indeed, flour, eggs, water bombs, stale milk and jeering would all be welcome.

Hang on peeps, they haven't lost yet.

No, and if they come back from this I will gladly eat my hat and write letters of apology to all of them. However, I have followed England through thick and thin since 1988 and I have never felt as bad as this, and there were some pretty thin times in there - to name but a few; Mark Illot, Peter Such, Peter Martin, Foster and Emburey recalled for ashes 1993, Gatting picked for Aus tour 94/95, Illingworth trying to remodel Devon Malcolm's action and England losing 1-0 in S Africa having drawn the first 4 games.

It's not so much the losing to a team we could and should be matching, it's the manner of it, especially contrasted with the hope that has built up over the last few years.
