They thought it was all over

Some predictions from Australia's finest, made before the series began:

Jeff Thomson: If you put the players from Australia and England up against each other it is embarrassing. There is no contest between them on an individual or team basis.

Glenn McGrath: I think I was saying 3-0 or 4-0 about 12 months ago, thinking there might be a bit of rain around. But with the weather as it is at the moment, I have to say

Terry Alderman: I definitely believe if any of our batsmen get out to Giles in the tests they should go and hang themselves. But I'm confident that won't happen.

Many more amusing examples can be found in this posting on a Motley Fool discussion board - found via PooterGeek.
