`Cept he's not really a Geordie: he's from Ashington!

And will I be able even to see highlights of this? No, I chuffing won't, `cos I can't even get bastarding Channel 5!!!!!

Thank you whichever incompetent, money-grubbing bastards in the cricketing authorities who sold their souls to Murdoch & couldn't even manage to sell ther highlights to a channel we can all get!

Boxer,

Can't you get a freeview box? I recently got one from tesco's for £25 and it now gives me C5 (not that I usually watch it) but also Film4, Beeb3 & 4 and lots of other rubbish!

It's not at all clear that we can get Freeview where we live either: no broadband (despite what the telcos say!); no mains gas; no C5; thankfully no DAB; and all this 25 miles north of Newcastle!

Marvellous!

I stand corrected Boxer, but I know he's a fan of the Barcodes. Regarding the cricket whether we like it or not Sky is de rigeur nowadays for the serious sportsfan. They have 2 hours of highlights tonight at 8pm.

Channel 5 are only showing half an hour and that will be interupted for some adverts and 5 minutes will be wasted for the preamble.

I'm not saying it's right but I pay £42.00 per month and get all Sky sports, I wouldn't be able to take my boy to a Premier League game for £42.00.

Cheers BB

England 168-2 at end of play. Do this right and get agood lead and we can beat them here.

Still think they declared too late in the last test match. Hopefully no silly mistakes this time.

Swings, roundabouts, yep!

And there is absolutely no chance that I'll give that thieving ex-Ozzie scumbag any of my money!

Surely for this one no brain is needed. Bat to a massive first innings total and then try to bowl them out for an innings win.

153 ahead at lunch Day 2. Time shouldn't come into it.

The boys did good - took wickets at important times to really put the pressure on.
