    No surprise that Neil Harris has gone .

    Since beating us think they have lost every game !

    Not surprised, they were obviously a physical team that focused a lot around their aerial ability under Warnock. After Warnock left that would've been a good time to transition to a more easy on the eye style of manager and to phase in the recruitment to match, instead they doubled down and got in Harris who's a significantly worse manager than Warnock, signed 6"6 Moore and expected much of the same. No real surprise that it didn't work. Over a third of their goals scored this season have come from corners alone!
     
  3. Will come back nicely refreshed for the next league game :-(
     
  4. They just need to add Gray and they'd be a promotion rival. Andre would gobble up those sort of chances....

    Cryptic but very clever, I took a little while to work that one out!

    Quite - too many cheap points thrown away due to many non super human performances!

    Burnley willing to offer Vydra to Bournemouth to get Josh King. Would be a serious strengthening of Bournemouth's squad, King has barely played and hasn't even scored. Would give them quite a lot of firepower upfront. Just have to hope that mahogany clown in charge keeps messing things up.

  11. Worst nightmare. Watch him go on to score a brace against us in the play offs while Gray continues to fire blanks.

    Surely King would much rather go to West Ham anyway though?

    Let's hope so. Bournemouth seem to be holding out for a lot of money for someone that could leave for free in six months...

    And now they're tripling down. Baffling.

    I had a little read on the Cherries forum and there was a suggestion that King is a disruptive influence especially where Danjuma is concerned.
    Also a few players making derogatory comments about William"s tactics/selections.

    Bad Away results

    0-0 against Sheff Weds
    1-0 loss against Reading
    1-1 against Wycombe
    0-1 loss against Barnsley
    1-1 against QPR
    0-0 against Bristol City
    0-0 against Notts Forest
    2-0 loss against Huddersfield
    2-1 loss against Swansea

    When you look at who we’ve drawn and lost too, I would say that’s 16 points dropped, excluding Reading and Swansea.

    Is it so baffling if you think of the owner - who seems to be a bit of a Berkeley Hunt and a bit short of football understanding? Maybe I've got him wrong.
    Mind you - I quite like McCarthy and he has had a lot of experience and some success.

    The 3 0-0s stick out as those matches I think we didn't attack the opposition's goal. That's 6 points dropped. After we went 1-0 up at Wycombe and QPR we should have pushed on rather than sat back, that's another 4 points. I think up to 10 is reasonable to assume we've dropped by simply being boring.

    Now we are in to the second half of the season, we have to start pushing for wins away from home.

    Er, it's quite clearly a mildly sarcastic joke about the immediately preceding quote from Munoz, claiming Deeney always gives '200 percent':

    "Troy is a special man for me," Munoz explained. "He is the big story here – it's important I have a good relationship with him because he's a special man and every time he gives 200 per cent for the team."

    Quite likely; the whole thing is what left me speechless.

    Maybe it was all the 'dislikes' from Watford fans?

    Ok. Seems like he's basically pointing out what we've all been complaining about for half the season (that our away form is abysmal and needs to be sorted out to have a strong chance of promotion), so makes sense to me.

    Arsenal close to signing Odegaard so guess that means they won't be chasing Buendia anymore

    Reversed 2 of them already. I’m more annoyed at the refs costing us 4 points against Brentford and muff.

    Big 7 days coming up,
    • Most of our rivals have the cup this weekend, apart from Brentford easily winnable for each of them.
    • We have a chance to make it 4 on the bounce on Tuesday.
    • Swansea and Brentford meet each other on Wednesday.
    • Reading play Muff next Friday.
