End of the English era? ;)

Well they played three good games (after 16 odd years it was bound to
happen), but is their dominance now over? Is English cricket now in turmoil,
as Australian cricket was supposed to be? ;-)

games, now suddenly its gone very silent.

Thing is this is how the tabloids work, they sensationalise the here and now
to make the papers look good. They couldn't give a toss about what might
change or happen later in the series. Sounds like a lot of pommie
supporters are like this on the r.s.c forum too.

Is it different on asc?

There were no posts here during the week when Aus lost to
Leics/BD/England, yet as soon as Aus won a game, all the usual suspects
started posting again.

I don't believe it was the Australians making claims that it was an end of
an era, that Australians dominance of cricket was over. So were we meant to
be saying something? If you lose and don't want to say anything that's fine,
but when you win don't sprout ridiculous claims.

No, you're right, it wasn't the Australians claiming it was the end of
an era after 4 losses in a row (including one to Bangladesh). The
Australians simply said nothing here and didn't post.

Of course, they all came back in droves after they managed a win,
claimed that the English era was over, and then started chortling about
how the poms go silent when their team loses.

I guess the term 'irony' would be lost on you.
