I'm confused. Really, really confused.
We're certainly under pressure again. England have played consistent cricket for two days in this match and have certainly played more consistent cricket than us in the series. That sees us in another challenging position that we'll have to sit down and think about it.
England are doing to us what we've done to a number of teams for a number of years.
But we'll keep on. There's a long way to go but all the momentum is with England at the moment.
England are doing to us what we've always done to other sides.
He (Vaughan) sets a field and the boys just bowl to it, bowl to the plan and execute it perfectly.
So it's been very difficult for Ricky, I think.
You can't be part of the side that loses the Ashes after all these years.
I can understand why the New Zealand team are feeling disappointed and frustrated at that.
It is difficult batting in artificial light with a red ball but it's a horrible task for umpires to make a judgement, particularly if they're going by light meters.
Whilst there's a competition still on we're still a chance.
It's just been a real challenge for us to try to find ways of getting these guys out. It's been tough work. It's been physically and mentally taxing.
It's a wonderful occasional and it's wonderful to share it with a great bunch of people. It's an emotional time and a reward for lots of hard work and preparation.
There are strong opinions being thrown around about who should be in or out of the side at a time when they are pretty easy to throw around.
But Test matches generally the quality wins out over time and they have great depth in quality and we feel like we have got it (as well), they will definitely put up a fight I am sure.
He just keeps coming back, so I've got no doubt he'll play as long as he wants and he's got the hunger. He just loves it.
They'll come here confident they can bat for long periods against us, which a lot of teams haven't been able to do over the years.
Shane is a wonderful cricketer and I'm sure he has all the attributes of a good captain, ... He has a good cricket mind and he helps Ricky a lot.
If he were injured, England would immediately be deprived of their leading bowler, one of their most reliable and destructive batsmen and their most inspirational personality.
He is probably right (about the) longer format, one-day cricket or like Twenty20 cricket the shorter the game the more of a bit of a lottery it can become.
It was a seaming wicket, plenty of moisture there. We take the game plan in of playing two spinners, obviously hoping to bat first and have them bowling on day five.
There is no doubt the rest helped me immensely, as it has done in the previous four years. People are questioning a couple of guys having a rest. We have been doing this for a long time now.
I have just spoken with Pigeon [McGrath] this morning [and he is] very optimistic and very positive. If anyone knows how to deal with it, those guys do.
He's going well. I know it sounds dramatic - a knee infection, in hospital, on a drip - but I went to visit him in hospital this morning and he was in good spirits. The improvement in just 24 hours has been amazing and just talking to Brett, he's certain he'll be turning out on Thursday.
It is just a matter of doing the work and having faith in what has been successful for me in the past. Very few series come down to one man. I don't think one player is going to control the destiny of the Ashes.
