    Football: pool in to the Final Spur of the season

    I don't think Liverpool will sign another midfielder unless they let go of a few. It's the one area they will be stacked in. They already have creative players in midfield but they kept getting injured. Lallana, Ox, Keita, Shaqiri are all more creative than Hendo, Gini and Milner. I expect Keita and Ox to play a lot more next season (probably Lallana too), though I have a feeling that Hendo or Gini will always be a staple in midfiled and only one of Ox, Shaq and Keita will play at a time (in midfield) to keep the defensive balance. Hopefully Lallana and Ox stay fit and Shaqiri improves then that would largely solve our midfield creativity issues. As for City players singing, i didn't think too much of it to be honest. I doubt they are aware of the context of those particular choice of words (except the veterans i guess). What annoyed me was the club's statement. They of all people should know better and could've just said what Pep did later in the interview (i.e. apologized to people who were offended but defended the players' intentions). It is still weird they sang a song about Liverpool though. I could've understood if it was a song about City's triumphs and beating Liverpool etc being part of the song. But the whole song was about Liverpool so it was bizarre lol

    That's right, Shorten WAS the right faction leader. Albo was the lefty (thinking back on when they were going at it for the Labor leadership).

    It seems like the strategy of preference deals with one nation and palmer has paid off since even though LNP were down on primary votes, the preference flew strongly towards LNP. Shorten is probably gone after this. Cannot possibly stay on after this disaster. Senate is probably going to be a clusterfuck as usual.

    Adani probably played a bigger role in QLD. QLD is now the trashiest state. Taking the mantle from Western Australia

    Wow did they fuck up the polling majorly in QLD or what? So far it does look like LNP will be back.

    Even the informal vote is useful in that you can assess the number of disengaged voters. Like, you can analyze the trend that over the last decade the number of informal vote have increased so overall more people are unhappy with the option available to them. Or something along that line. That is still a useful matrix. Of course, then there are those people who just like drawing dicks on everything!

    Football: pool in to the Final Spur of the season

    I think Pool's priority will be a leftback. With Moreno and Milner gone at the end of season (assuming no extension), we will need cover at that position. They can switch things around at RB with Gomez who can play defensively and allow a more attacking RM (Hendo, Shaq, Ox etc). But LB is pretty sparse. Who would be a good LB at pool? I haven't seen many rumours about potential LB so not sure who are the leading candidates. Forwards can be covered with Ox and Shaq. And maybe Origi and Brewster. Although I would still prefer another proper forward who can fit anywhere across the front line and won't be a big drop in quality (*sideeyes Griezmann*).

    Just because someone decides to vote in a non-compulsory voting system, doesn't necessarily mean they vote with insight and forethought. USA and Trump is a perfect demonstration . (unless said voter is a Trump voter I guess)

    Football, a Sterling effort, but Virgil got Dijk'd.

    Holy fuck, can't believe it. Had so many nightmares over the last few days that we got battered at home or drew. Even had one where Liverpool won 5-0 lol. But always felt it wasn't going to be. To wake up to this though! Holy fuck balls! Exact opposite of last match! So fucking ecstatic right now! Just wanna call in sick and get rekt lol

    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    Same. But then saw that it is not being released in Australia (through steam anyway). Which is extremely annoying. Also, I was hoping it was going to be closer to AUD$1000 than $1400. Specially since my alternative plan was getting a Rift which was on sale for $400. But now Rift is discontinued and Rift S is around $700 and seems to have pretty average specs for the price. Gah, Not sure what to do now.

    Cricket 33: ODIs Still Aren’t Proper Cricket Edition

    I feel for the Aussie bowlers. Everyone is focusing on their stats vs Indian fast bowlers. While this was easily the best pace attack India ever(?) produced, they bowled to a fragile Aussie batting lineup while the Aussie bowlers bowled to friggin Pujara and Kohli! Indian bowlers barely had a challenge. Cummins was their biggest adversary Watching the highlights of the Aussie batters getting out is quite enraging. Ugh. I think both sides bowled pretty well. Indian bowlers were rewarded for it, while Aussies got dicked by Pujara. Starc is probably the only one who didn't bowl well overall compared to normal. Poms are gonna roll us in England....

    Pujara was the main difference between the two teams. He completely crushed the spirit of the Aussie bowler. By the time middle order came, the job was done. Aussie bowlers were spent. Beneath the Gold, brittle steel

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Art of the Rewatch edition

    I expect that the future Avenger arcs will focus on crossovers with the X-Men (Onslaught arc?) and Fantastic Four (Galactus arc?). Might explain why Disney spent so much money getting those rights from Fox. Plus, there aren't too many enemies more badass than Thanos, so I expect they will want to ramp up the power level of the next big baddie. I am hoping for Onslaught saga, as it crosses Fantastic Four, X-Men and Cable (and Deadpool) and could fit quite nicely. On other news, just finished watching The Dragon Prince and the latest season of The Good Place, both of which was excellent! Starting on the latest season of A Series of Unfortunate Events.
