    Great game. Didn't think they had it in them. That second collapse felt like the end!

    I think that need was sated by getting Shaqiri (much to my dismay, i would've preferred waiting and getting Fekir). I don't think Fekir was earmarked for midfield. He was going to be what Shaqiri is, a wide striker, who could play 10 if system needed changing. Probably suited to replace Firmino as well.

    Don't think Liverpool need another creative player. Keita and Shaqiri will just have to step up. While Shaqiri isn't exactly a box-to-box midfielder, he is quite similar to Ox in many way when Ox first joined. He has impressed so far whenever he got the minutes. Plus, whoever they get in January will take months to adapt, thereby negating their need by the time they are ready (cause Ox will be back and probably Lallana from his x-th injury :P). The problem isn't that they don't have creative midfielders, it's just that the two creative ones are injured and Keita haven't fired so far. More minutes could do the trick. Hopefully. Worst case, switch to 4-2-3-1 for some games and play an additional forward.

    Pakistan declared. They'll win it from here. Don't see the Aussies lasting a day and a half.

    Heh, there is the Pakistan we all know

    What is really shocking to me is how well Pakistan is batting. I kind of expected Aussies to suck. But wasn't expecting such a strong batting performance from Pakistan (they always bowl pretty well, so no surprise there).

    How shit is the pitch that even Aussie batters are doing well?

    No way. His average self is way better than anything Aussies are used to. I expect he will slice through the Aussies like butter today as they try, in vain, to play defensive shot against spin (which they are so awful at because they push at the ball so much, zero soft hands.....). The only chance Aussies have is a Pakistan collapse, which isn't out of the question either despite playing well first innings.

    Don't think this batting lineup can grind anything. Shaun Marsh is probably the only one who has the mindset. The rest are all relatively flakey. It's not like the aussie batters have good defensive techniques, so I expect they will fall while trying to defend.

    Aussie bowlers are getting battered. Can't see them winning from here. Considering Aussie's fragile batting lineup, I am not very confident that they will be able to salvage a draw here :/
  11. wha...? Edit: read that post like 4 times and still not sure i get it....
  12. It does get a little easier as you find tactics that work. When I played, the timer made me rush and die a lot until I realized that it isn't too tightly tuned and there is no benefit in finishing way before timer runs out. So I started to rush less. My first squad member usually travels the furthest (like a scout) so if I trigger enemies I can still set up the rest of the squad to minimize casualty, by either focus firing and taking out hopefully one or two of the enemy squad before their turn, or setting up defensively. If I don't trigger enemies, then I always assumed i will run into them next turn and set up an overwatch ambush (instead of going further than the first squad member). Smoke bomb is your best friend. Try to get it as soon as possible. I've found it more useful than grenades as it can save your squad from getting wiped. Still sucks when your squad miss so much though. That bloody Aim base% could've done with a bit more tuning.

    Do we have any batsmen that fits that bill? lol It will be fun to see Australia coming up against a Pace attack that is better than theirs (considering the injury to Aussie pace lineup). Don't think that happens all that often!

    Idiotic shot from Ashwin. And not sure wtf Shami was doing either.... Hopefully England keeps the lead. Cause with their batting lineup, they will need every run!
