Congratulations to the English team!
Please don't call them 'Heroes' as this demeans our soldiers who go beyond the call of duty and merit the term.
Well done to the English team who all played brilliantly and did a good job.
It was a very exciting series in the end, shame its all over but pleased we won and no surprise that Freddie had to make his mark in such a vital day with the wonderful run-out of Ponting to turn the game. Can't wait for the next Ashes battle.
I hope the "powers that be" don't decide to give this lot MBEs like they did when we briefly won them back, and on this occasion will wait to see if we can retain the Ashes when they are up for grabs in Australia in eighteen months time.
