Bournemouth (Away) Sunday September 15th

Recommended Posts

The dreaded international break.  You hope and pray everyone comes back healthy.  It’s gotta be the same team that started against wolves for me.  Positive result and they deserve another run out.  They are weak at the back and midfield in my opinion.  They will play to win which favors us.  3 points is what I expect, they are a lower half side and if we expect Europe we need to expect wins in these matches.

                        Kean

If we are injury free the team picks it’s self for this one. 

Bournemouth will struggle to contain us if we play like we did against Wolves who are a far better team in all areas, I think we take this 3 or 4 1.

Only change I would make from this is sub Gylfi ( just to give him a small timeout) and put Matts dad in.

I can understand the reason behind that but I would have thought Davies could have been given the opportunity, after his England exploits his confidence must be soaring, and he did play the holding MF role.  

For the u21.  Kenny lookman and many others of ours looked like world beaters in the u21 World Cup and loook at them now.  Foreign league hoping to find their footing.  Very few academy players make it to the first team and then even fewer become regular starters.  He’s a hometown hero which is great but I just don’t see a place for him in this side.

That’s fair enough after all it’s a game of opinions, having said that I think you will find many will do. 

Looking back over the last 2 seasons he comes out of them looking very good when he played, a lot more pluses than minuses even a couple of Motm votes. 

The lad isn’t finished here he’s got a big future a head of him at this club, Silva doesn’t want to go the way of his predecessors and be in fear of putting the youngsters in because he’s scared of results, as we’ve witnessed some of the senior players are more prone to let us down so should we keep persisting with them. 

I know it’s only conjecture but if it was true that Schneiderlin was pairing up with Delph I would much rather see Davies.

It may be foolhardy but I am confident about getting the result tomorrow. Bournemouth leak chances and whilst they can create themselves, if we actually turn up and put in a professional performance, we should have enough to win the game and win well enough. This will be a great opportunity for Kean to break his duck if he starts.

There is mention of Gomes being dropped and I wouldn't be completely against this. He was terrible in our last away game at Villa and he has that hit or miss element about him. The difficulty is that we don't really have that player on the bench to come in and take his place. In the future that might Gbamin but we have Davies and Schneiderlin. We could play Siggy deeper but we are away from home at a side that will beat us if we don't respect them. It might be the case that we do play Schneiderlin and Delph to control that midfield and pen them in and build pressure but there wouldn't be enough movement in midfield for my liking whereas I feel we would be too open with Davies and Delph together.

We are undefeated in 2019 when playing on Sunday.  Long may it continue.  We could go 3rd if we win.  Big match, these are the types of games we need to win if we wanna be top 6

Here we go again we could go third but what happens,  we get nose bleeds if we go too high and end up waving the white flag. 2-1 to Bournemouth.

There’s a lot of confidence which is great 👍 but let’s not forget Bournemouth on their day can be a hard team to beat, then had to that our not to good away record and we’ve got a tough game a head of us. 

I think a hard fought win with only one goal in it, I really don’t see us slaughtering them, but I hope I’m wrong because I’ll be watching this in a bar in Spain, and I love larging it up in front of the expats when we are banging them in COYB.

I’m not sure with that line I’d have gone with Davies in stead of the of Schneiderlin, also not sure on DCL but surly he has to perform now to prove he’s number one striker, and Cenk must be gutted. 

But in Silva we trust and its a good sign when players we think should be playing are sat on the bench or done even make the squad, it shows we have a team with depth and we are heading in the right direction.

I think you’ve hit it on the head there. We all think we know better, and it shows we have enough depth to mix it up now. 

Dare I say we have a plan B yet?

No idea what to expect from our team from match to match.  Exception is Digne, maybe Delph and Coleman.  Thus, no idea whether we’ll be alert, aggressive, smooth flow, challenge-for-top-6 — or dull, mistake-prone, incompetent in final third, mid-table mediocrity.

Could be 0-3 or 3-0.  I guess 1-1 more likely.
