Well done, the poms
They deserved to win back the Ashes. The Aussies were off their game and the Poms played brilliantly, with none of their past hesitancy and lack of confidence. Freddy Flintoff looks like a truly world-class athlete - the kind the poms have missed for a while - and leader.
Now, the questions is: how quickly can the Aussies rebuild their side with younger players of the same ability? They've gone on too long with some of the ageing warriors and it's time for that difficult period of intergenerational change.
We'll seeya in four years, Pommies ...Posted by Hughie at September 13, 2005 8:46 AM
