it's funny - i'm sure most aussies get a similar warm, fuzzy feeling about harmy's first ball in 2006/7...

That's hardly suprising Lies. Most Australians I've ever met take more pleasure in England failing than they do in the success of their own team. Symptomatic of the massive chip on their shoulder, imo.

unbelievable, all the poms here continual gloating of the so called demise of the Australian team after the countless beatings they recieved.

I think you are mistaken on whose shoulder the massive chip is.

no point scoobeck - the irony of my post was clearly lost on poor old grim...

Ah the old "irony" card....ranks just one below "I was fishing, guv".

i could have argued that 2006/7 was more about the success of australia than the failure of england...

You could. But you didn't.

2006/7 was more about the success of australia...

the failure of england was just a nice bit of icing...

So we're into factual argument now, rather than pseudo-irony. Very good.

I could say nearly choked on my morning tea when I read this. However, I am Australian, I took it in my stride.

Grim, if we were to take this post of yours, reverse it to apply not even to 'most English people' but just to yourself as represented by your posts on here, would it not be more accurate?

I sincerely doubt most Australians care more about what happens to the English cricket team than they care about what happens to the Australian cricket team. Your post did give me a chuckle though, I was wondering whether the clear irony in your post was deliberate or accidental?

"Most Australians I've ever met"

The clues are there if you read them. If you want to engage in fantasy reverse extrapolations, please feel free.

Maybe my sample wasn't representative, who knows.

Fair enough Grim.

What do you personally derive more pleasure from, England performing well, or Australia performing poorly?

pseudo-irony?

Thought he was just taking the p.ss
