The game plan went out of the window after 50 secs and that 2nd goal was really unlucky. I’m not panicking yet as we’ve played well in both games imo and deserved a point. Just not got the rub of the green.

Wes is too isolated and we need more bodies in the box to support him. Those floating balls in from out wide won’t work either, any centre forward would struggle with that service. We need to wise up quickly.

Heaton dropped a bolllock but I don't have any concerns about him; he made a terrific save in the second half to deny them a third.  What does worry me is that we created umpteen chances and put only one of them away, and that one was a screamer.  I still wonder where the goals are going to come from.  Our first choice striker doesn't inspire confidence and I'm not sure how many goals from midfield we can count on.  AEG has been way off the required standard.

Jed was a decent shot stopper.  There’s no difference.

I think Heaton will inspire confidence in the back 4 and organise them better. I’ve heard he’s a shouter we’re Jed is a bit quiet.

Jed played a fundamental part getting us into the PL yet is fcuked out at the first opportunity.  Yet Elmo, Taylor, Elghazi the latter of whom has performed awfully so far are shoe ins.

I’m not sure AEG will play against Everton, also think the full backs have done what they’ve been asked to do.

I’ve no problem with Heaton playing over Jed.

Always amazes me with MOTD they have 5-6 minutes of highlights yet miss out obvious shots and chances. For example the grealish curler at Holte End that just went wide wasn't included yet it made the Sky 3 minutes highlights. Also no focus at all on Billing fouls.

Was also surprised something they did show wasn't seemingly checked on VAR as really Bournemouth should've had a penalty, Trez kicked their player in the box.

Its looking like we may be a winger and a striker short as we suspected. El Ghazi was very poor today and Wesley looks like he will take a while to settle in.

Luiz wa impressive after the poor error and Mcginn was exceptional.

El Ghazi has been poor for both games now, but it's the much more impressive Trezeguet who gets subbed.

El Ghazi was the first player subbed today.

Horrendous start, which would be hard for any team to overturn. 

We showed some resilience, team spirit and flashes of good football.

There was always going to be a problem with DS's method of playing it out from the back until the players got up to PL sharpness. I agree with a number of posters who have said we need 2 DCM's a the moment, one of whom can deliver a crunching tackle when required.
Early days, jury out.

Among the many depressing things that game highlighted, one of the ugliest is the way "game management" has spread unchecked into the game.  The way the Bournemouth players kept blatantly breaking up the flow of the game by feigning injury once they knew they had a weak referee was shameful.  But of course there is no shame in cheating in the game any longer.  It will never happen but any player who rolls around as though he has a multiple fracture one minute then magically is sprinting the length of the pitch the next should get a retrospective card for being a cheating twat- sorry, simulation.

Do we still refer to those as ‘a Westwood’?

It will lead me to a heart attack, I swear. It just boils my blood, the lad who had no number on spent most of the second half on the floor, rolling around prentending to be hurt. Wilson up front, slightest touch and he was down.

The worst part was, an experienced ref fell for all of it.

Bournemouth are just the PL equivalent of QPR.
