The poor crossing from our full backs is costing a lot of effort and no result

Yes, I agree.  I'm a fan of Elmo but his crossing was poor today.

Possibly another introduction next week following Luiz today?

It's early days I know but, i honestly can't see Wesley and Davis getting  into double figures, goals wise. Combined.

Maybe the solution is to play them together.

Would rip up the Dean Smith blueprint of pretty much his whole managerial career. Guess 3-5-2 is feasible with the squad but didn't he rule that out in pre season at a fans forum?

If the blueprint is get it wide to the wingers to throw in crosses for the striker he may have to rip it up, at least short term. It's well documented Wesley's main weakness is his heading. Whatever the solution, he needs to find a way to score more goals.

Well it got us two goals in the play off final that way.

His default formation through his time at Walsall and Brentford was always one upfront with a fluid midfield behind him. Certainly McGinn looks good in this league already, could've scored today easily.

Don't see him going to two upfront anytime soon. If Kodj is available for Everton or Palace you could well see him come in out wide for El Ghazi. Won't offer as much protection to full back but would possibly give us more unpredictability in final third.

I think both McGinn and Jack are struggling to pick up the pace and power of the prem and need to pick up on their performances.
Once they do though I think we will see a big improvement in the results.
Yes. From what I saw today.

It's two games in. Once the silly mistakes are rectified there will be an upturn. We have a squad with a fair degree of strength in depth now. Trust Smith to get it right

First ten mins we were poor then dominated. I can’t think of many saves heaton had to make. Trez was excellent as was Douglas. Wesley needs someone to play a bit closure to him and thought jack was too deep at times. We will get there.

We put in a decent performance today and Bournemouth should have had a man sent off. By my reckoning he committed three yellow card offences and stayed on the pitch. It looks like sticking the ball in the net might prove to be our problem.

I see 'Super Scotty Hogan' scored for Stoke today.  ;)

It's shit getting beat but I didn't feel that we were out of our depth at any point. I agree with Dean regarding the ref but he should keep his countenance for now. We made some silly mistakes, cut them out and we should be ok but anyone who thought that this would be a cakewalk has had a rude awakening.

The first 15 mins Heaton gave away a penalty and almost missed controlled another one gifting them a goal, i thought our goalkeeping curse was striking again, he redeemed himself somewhat thereafter.

By the way, does blatant time wasting and histrionics not get punished in this division?

On Villa Park food offerings the boys enjoyed Guru Spice in the upper Witton End and despite looking hard I did not spot  any cobs on menu.  As for the other it was a lovely warm day😊

I thought we looked tired in the last 10 minutes or so, with the result that the all out offensive for the equaliser didn’t quite materialise.

I would say that if little old Bournemouth don't get punished for it then there is no chance any of the so called big guns will get punished for it.
