England are by no means out of this. They've lost the day but it's not like they've been bowled out for 100. A good spell or two from the bowlers, a better batting effort in the second innings and maybe a bit of luck and Eng could still head to Adelaide at 0-0.
Of course, Australia have the advantage and will look to push it, but England can take some comfort from the fact that the first two sessions were dead even. This still has the makings of a very tight series.
Swann is a cracking bloke, he loves playing the game. I think if he fails it will be because he wasn't good enough, I don't think he's a bottler; for example I would say MJ does not fail because of lack of quality, he is a bottler.
