England Meltdown!

The Ashes.

Yesterday Australia looked out  on their feet at 132 for 6.
Brad Haddon and Mitchell Johnson took over a hundred from a pom attack on a roll.

This morning Broad and Anderson rolled up the tail under 300.
England cruising at 55 for 1 when the Aussies managed to get one more over before lunch and first ball Trott holed out to Johnson.
Pieterson and debutant Carberry took it to 85 for two then the wheels fell off, 85 for 3 KP, then three wickets fell on 87 (13 short of 100), 87 for 6, 89 for 7, 91 for 8.
Is six for nine runs the biggest collapse in Ashes history.

Can Broad make a difference to put the boot into the boorish locals again, after they lifted him to six wickets on day one.
Kama, these are sports fans who see AB fans booing Quade Cooper for repeated poor sportsmanship as bad, Ha ha ha.

As an opening to yet another Ashes Series, fascinating seems somewhat inadequate somehow.
