You'd think after bowling to a guy yesterday who excelled and accumulated by being watchful and leaving balls outside off, England would at least try this a bit today. Yet again silly shots, no paitence. Pathetic. (Boycott mode there)

Lots and lots of problems, and no obvious solutions. But to start.

Root has to stand down as captain, revert to four and just bat.
Roy, three tests too many really - never an opener at test level. There's a reason he doesn't open in the Championship with Surrey. Never understood the decision to play him there, particularly as we tried it with Hales a few years ago and that didn't work. It immediately puts the team under pressure and on the back foot when he inevitably gets out early swishing at stuff, but I presume he's been told to play his natural game, so maybe not entirely his fault. But enough already, it's already tainted his OD heroics - just let him do that.
Denly, again, I like him, but clearly not good enough for this level.
Sam Curran has to come in at least, and Woakes should be pushed up the order (three??) as he seems to be the only player with a bit of technique right now.

There is big argument to bring in Morgan as a Mike Brearley style skipper, isn't there, even if the middle order is a bit packed (or not even functional at the moment)

Who would you bring in? Jennings, Sibley, Ballance, Pope?

Now matter how shit we are there is always something exceptionally pleasing seeing Warner go for a low score.

They have to look to the future so no to Ballance and Jennings unless the selectors think they have improved technically? Pope and Sibley are worth looking at. Sam Northeast is also well up the averages.

So frustrating that we’ve blown the Ashes by that excuse of an innings

The Aussies can build a total so quickly and they realistically only need another 60 runs
