'One day you're the cock of the walk, the next a feather duster.'
My team for Melbourne: Cook, Carberry, Root, Pietersen, Bell, Stokes, Bairstow, Broad, Finn, Rankin, Panesar.
Let's be clear, this wasn't a 'disappointing' Ashes defeat. This was a fiasco of 2006 proportions, and heads must roll.
Won't do Swann/Prior/Anderson any harm being dropped. Big egos, but all had a dismal series. #Ashes
Great sides are ruthless after abject humiliation and failure. Cook's a great batsman, terrible captain. Flower's run his course.
Time for an England shake-up. Drop Swann/Prior/Anderson for Melbourne. Axe Cook as captain at end of tour, and Flower as coach. New era.
9 down. Bresnan wicket a perfect summary of the series - England dumb, Australia brilliant. #Ashes
Swann's had a shocking series with ball and bat. He should be dropped for Melbourne. #Ashes
