    It's hard enough trying to engage any Aussies in conversation about the cricket as it is, and when you do the theme seems to be how they are being cheated out of this series, as is also the consensus of media coverage here. Another shocking DRS decision has gone against them so expect the same reaction to the current test. Usman Khawaja wrongly being out will make the most minor of differences to the outcome of this test. It was an awful decision though!
  2. Best team in the world :notworthy: My aussie husband is not a happy man......:laugh:
  3. i have been told its bad luck to kill a cricket , this one has took resident in one of our cordaline plants and slowly ruining it .......ive tried to scare it away by showing it pictures of my wife but it keeps coming back.......any help please !!!!

    Cricket Teams in Perth

    Hi Moving to Perth this year and I am looking to join a cricket team in the Northern Suburbs, Tapping area. Just wondered if anybody had any contacts or plays for a team themselves and can point me in the right direction. Thanks

    World cup cricket anyone?

    Hi all, thought I'd better open up a new thread on world cup cricket. I'm a big fan and I'm sure there're lots of you out there... Did anyone watch yesterday's match? It was exciting but nerve wracking.... England had it in their hands and then lost it and got it back only to tie. Would've been nice if they won it but hey, it's better than losing! :cute:

    Whoa! Hang On! Cricket

    I only visited this forum by accident. Then I registered out of curiosity. I had a couple of weeks off taking some time out, which wasn't a proper break because I've been doing paperwork mostly, but it wasn't the normal 100 mile an hour routine that I'm used to running a business so it was nice to sit back and chill for a while. I'd taken my laptop back to our narrowboat (temporary office) and had some lovely days just watching Spring burst forth. While working of course. :wink: So I stopped by with an open mind just to read the posts of others, from which I've learned a lot. Having returned from living in Australia for 7 years back to a nice part of England, it was like revisiting the past all over again. Almost like looking through a window into another life. I recognised some things I missed, others I didn't and this made me realise that I was happy to be home in England. Some of you made me remember all kinds of nice things, happy memories and good times in Australia and some of you made me realise how difficult life is for you right now and how much you are pinning all your hopes on moving to Oz. I do genuinely wish you all well. Some of you seem to dislike any favour of the UK which I do not understand. If you're as happy as you say you are in Australia, I don't know why you would be concerned to the point that you would post negative comments especially on the MBTTUK forum?? This surprised me more than anything. It's one reason why the Brits are regarded as negative thinkers abroad. It's not the best of adverts but luckily the Americans, Aussies, Kiwis and Japanese don't believe you because they keep coming back to the UK.:biggrin: I think their nice comments cancel yours out anyway so mostly no one takes much notice of anyone moaning to much. They seem to see past the negative things and look only towards the big picture. I must admit, I too tend to avoid the doom and gloom brigade. I am very proud to be British, I have no problem saying this. Last night on the news, there was a report about International Women's Day and in front of one TV camera in Birmingham stood an Afghanistan woman wearing a burka. She openly wished for a level playing field for all women. I thought how fantastic are we? The British, US, Aussies and other allies had made it possible for an Afghan woman to finally have the freedom to stand up in public and ask for what she wants without her being stoned to death. Then I remembered the nitpicking on this forum about Britain. :sad: I know my posts on life back in the UK as I am experiencing it have been of help to those hoping to return and frankly, that's really where I've focused much of my attention. I'm glad if it's helped people. That's the good side of any forum. But truthfully. I'm not a forum person. I'm not a Facebook, twitter, blog or social networking person either. And in all honesty, I don't have time. I'm back at work now and it's full speed again. For those who are hoping to move back to the UK, I hope my posts have helped you plan your return as far as costs are concerned. Some people have asked for my contact details but obviously I can't post these on the forum. The only person who has these details is in fact Quoll and one or two others. But as most of us know, it's never a good idea to plaster your real identity or that of your families and children all over the internet. Goodbye all, I wish you all success and happiness. Cricket

    England Cricket team.

    My first post on this good looking forum. I lived in Brisbane with my parents from 14 to 24, I am a refrigiation engineer and trying my luck back in London. Ohhh the pain of not being able to rib my aussie workmates about how easy the England team is finding this aussie team is killing me, after years of ribbing the recent win over them and what looks like a good England team at last is buzzin me :biggrin: Bet you English lad out there are enjoying the ashes up to now.

    England cricket team.

    Just when they looked down and out in the last test against Pakistan now the 7th wicket partnership has scored in excess of 300 and taken them from 100 for 7 to 405 for 7. An absolutely amazing batting display from Trott and Broad, both have reached their 150.

    Kids football and cricket

    Sorry title meant to say Kids football and soccer. Hello, we are looking to move to the Gold Coast around March time of next year. My kids play school and club football and school and club cricket. Do the schools have such teams and are there any clubs that they can play at as well? We are looking at Helensvale,upper coomera and the surrounding areas. Now I know they have trials for football here in October.Is it the same there (if there are any) or can they join anytime? My youngest who is 10 really doesn't want to move, so I will need to know if he and his brother can carry on with their sports. Thank you. Julie

  15. Hi All Im coming out to Melbourne on a working holiday visa in November 2009 and I am putting out some feelers for a footy and cricket team to play for whilst I am out there.
