Desperately need Roberts at least.

I doubt Roberts wants to come back.  If he did, I think he'd be here by now.  He'll probably be able to get a high end Championship or lower end premier league offer.

Not a bad 1st half, just toothless yet again offensively. I'd like to see Tav come out of the 3 in midfield and play just off Britt and Fletch.

Playing this formation it's important to get the midfield into the box and get lots of crosses in - we are doing neither at the moment.

The stats said we have had 15 crosses tbf. Only 5 successful though.

Id have Wing on for Saville. At least Wing can shoot.

Christ you can’t have watched him in the cup

Well that was a pretty decent half...right up until that corner.

Bournemouth lucky to be 1-0 up at the break...don't think they deserve to be. Both sides were pretty evenly matched and neither side had looked like scoring until then.

Don't know if thats because the Cherries are playing below par, or Warnock & co worked out an effective lineup and game plan to deal with them.

Either way we looked a lot better than in recent games...just failed to really test the visitors' keeper. We're going to have to change that second half.

Off the back of what? A failed spell at Norwich and the odd game for us?

Spence’s crossing is so poor and Johnson’s isn’t much better either

Think the big thing for me on the crossing is the lack of consistency. Both them, particularly Johnson, are capable of decent crosses. But where do you stand as a forward in that box when they are ready to deliver? It's a bloody lottery. Johnson ranges from spanking it all the way across for a throw-in to a casual tap in the direction of the box straight into a defending midfielder.

I'd put Morsy on and move Howson into Savilles role personally.

I wouldnt, Savilles 3-4 times this game has anticipated passes when theyve played out from the back and won the ball high up the pitch. Wing all he seems to do is give the ball back to opposition recently.

Sorry I meant crosses from our wing backs.

He's been a passenger since his first 1-6 games in the 1st team. I honestly don't see a player in there 

Neither do i really. He’s similar to Wing. Came into the team and completely took the opportunity and couldn’t do much wrong. As time has went on, the real standard of both players has shone through, specifically Wing.

Bournemouth definitely don't deserve to be ahead, but i don't think we do either. We've shaded the general play but you need to create chances to deserve a lead.

Wasn’t expecting bournemouth to have less than 60% pass accuracy when the game started

I think it's the first time since Warnock has been here that we've had a higher passing accuracy than our opponents.  It's certainly not been that common.  Good pressing from us has helped as it's knocked them off their game a bit 👍

    • Does anyone else think we will struggle to get any players from the Premier League on loan?  I think the managers might look at the Roberts situation and think that their player might get more game time elsewhere.. just a thought. 
    • Every football manager players eyes light up as they furiously scout South American regens.
    • Tav's injury has probably heightened the need for some creative flair needing to be added to the squad. Am I the only one that is wondering if it's the boots that Tav is wearing that is causing him to slip? The Ground staff didn't have a normal summer to reseed or relay the pitch or whatever they normally do but lets face it the Riverside pitch is still light years ahead of many if not most at this level. I didn't see Spurs or Man City players slipping any more than their lesser opponents in the cup. Come to think of it I didn't notice Blackburn players slipping much either. He seems to be wearing these laceless Mutator Predator boots (happy to be corrected) if my eyesight is not deceiving me. Are they also the same boots that Marcus Browne was wearing? If so that is two players down due to footwear as much as the state of the pitch. About time NW issued them with good old fashioned brown boots as I used to call them with real "men's" studs! Meanwhile we are now scouring for loans and additional wages that the Club can ill afford.
    • The new work permit rules will make it harder to sign European players but it will now be easier to sign players from outside the EU.
    • That's really sad. I think for the forseeable future we can't really buy top-level proven championship players. So we have to rely on international and young unproven players. I was a little bit worried last season when our new signing like Bola, Dijkstell and Browne did not deliever. I'm much more positive about the future this season, I think we have a solid squad now. If we do some smart transfers next season can be great.
