James Anderson spent too many years _ mostly as a kid, recently as a player _ watching Australia embarrass England Down Under to want to let up on the old enemy now.
With a chance to win the Ashes outright instead of just retain them with a drawn series, the 24-year-old pace England paceman is eager to win the fifth test in Sydney beginning Monday to complete a 3-1 series win and end a 24-year winning drought in Australia.
Anderson said Friday that "when I was growing up as a kid, watching us come over here and struggle, then being involved in 2006-7, that was really tough."
Australia won the 2006-7 series 5-0 to regain the Ashes.
