"Won this event last year, enjoys the course. Stenson has been outstanding this year, winning the Race to Dubai, he#s favourite of this 5 man group A, but time for him to take the foot of the gas. Schwartzel defending his Title, or at least to top these 5. "
"Tied 2nd in the South African Open in November, despite two rounds of 65, rounds of 70 and 71, let him down. A South African in form, and after the death of Mandela, a win here by a South African would be fitting. "
Jbe Kruger (1st Round Leader)
"All South African entries will want to do well here in Mandela's memory. Kruger runner up in SA Open last Month, shooting 65 twice, can take an early lead. "
"England have to perform here, simple, they have not punished the Aussie attack and shown to much respect, playing bad shots. Losing the toss, did not help last game, the Aussies were 257-5, and made 200 more runs before losing their 6th. Not good enough, Cook should have got his bowlers more aggressive, bouncers and short deliveries, to unsettle them. Its now or never here, at 2-0 down with 3 to play. England to roll their sleeves up and get at the now over confident Aussies. "
England (Draw No Bet)
"England 2-0 down, with 3 to play. In danger of Losing the Ashes for the first time since the 5-0 2006/7 Series. Expect England to step up here, the Aussies have played well, but England have let them. Time now for England to stand up and battle, this side isn't that different from the side that beat Australia in Australia in 2010/11, with Cook and Pieterson smashing the Aussie bowlers every where. England are to good to go 3-0 down. "
"The 2010 Ashes Series in Australia, Johnson was the leading wicket taker with 15. Siddle was second with 14, despite bowling 12 Overs more. Johnson was not selected for the Tour of England in the Summer, big mistake by the Selectors. He was released early from the India Tour to get in shape for the Ashes. Will give England's Batsmen all sorts of problems with his left Arm Swing. "
CT Tremlett (England) (Top Series Team Bowler)
"Missing through injury for this Summer's Ashes Tremlett is back. The 2010 Ashes Down under is the last time the Aussies faced the 6'8" giant. He took 17 wickets in that Series, second to Anderson who took 24, bowling some 80 more Overs. No real value in Anderson or Swann, the Aussies Batsmen will not be used to Tremlett, they are more use to Anderson and co, 9s is value. "
DA Warner (Australia) (Top Series Team Batsman )
"Bad boy Warner had a few problems in England, missing 2 Test Matches due to disciplinary problems. Scoring 138 Runs in 3 Matches, Average 23.00, H.S 71. However he will relish being on Home soil, and after all the stick he took from the English supporters he will want to show his Class. He is a top Batsman, who can score runs against the best, if he can concentrate on his Batting he will score runs no problem. "
IJL Trott (England) (Top Series Team Batsman )
"Trott did not have the best Ashes Series this Summer, averaging 29, HS 67. However he does like the Australian wickets, in 2010 he scored 445 runs, second behind Cook, some 85 runs ahead of Peterson. Cook has struggled a bit with the Bat, and Trott knows he can pick up the mantle here, on pitches that suit him. "
"Everton are unbeaten in the Premier League after 4 games, including victory over Chelsea. New Manager Martinez won the FA Cup last year with massive underdogs Wigan. With new signings Kone, Lukaku, Barry, Everton are stronger than last Season, they have every chance of making the Final. "
"Madrid have won this competition a record 9 times, the last time in 2001/2002. Manager Ancelotti has won The Champions League twice as a player, and once as a Manager. With his experience and Ronaldo coming to the peak of his game and the signing of Gareth Bale, this could be Real's year. "
