We never lost to Bournemouth at the Riverside so therefore it's destiny we win this 1-0 

Lets hope the weight of history rests on our side. Though to be honest I'd be happy with a point.

I will accept anything today, but I dont think I’ve been more accepting of a defeat. They are miles ahead of us unfortunately. Blackburn got a couple against their defence but our defence just isn’t cohesive yet. I wouldn’t be surprised at a heavy loss, then Akpom announced to dull the pain, 0-3.

At the minute I think we might have a marginally better season than last. For us to have a chance of the play offs I think we need 4 more players. For me to wake up on a morning and think we definitely have a chance I think we need another 7, which aint gonna happen.

just go as solid as we can.
Fry to play right sided center back of 3. give him 3 games in his proper position to see if he improves if not drop him.
Gone with 3 at back because I don't think any of our center backs are good enough to play as a 2.
When not if Howsons legs go after 60/65 mins swap him with Paddy.

Bettinelli
Fry McNair Hall
Dijksteel and Johnson as wing backs
Howson Morsy Saville
Fletcher Assombalonga

Not very exciting but trying to make us solid and difficult to beat at home.
Bounemouth probably to good for us anyway no matter what team we put out.
Would take a draw now.

If we insist on sticking with this system i'd like to see us give this a try and see how it goes.

Bettinelli

Spence Dijksteel Hall Fry Coulson

Browne Morsy Tav

Fletch Britt

Morsy being the shield in midfield allowing Browne and Tav to be more advanced. Maybe we try it and the midfield is overran but i'd like to see us give it a try see if it helps us going forward.

Having Morsy on the bench somehow makes us look stronger. This could be the day we begin our title charge. UTB

Disappointed morsy hasn’t started, but I can understand why. Bournemouth still have a very strong side.....

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
