Decent point given how shit we were. Hopefully don't see Zaniolo starting for a while, especially away from home.

A point we don't really deserve so hopefully its one we look back on as pivotal by the end of the season.

Martinez our best player by a distance which against Bournemouth isn't great. Lets hope thats the last we'll ever see of Konsa at right back.

Why didnít we deserve it? I saw nothing to suggest they were better than us to deserve  the win

And a world class header from Oliie Watkins to salvage the point. The only real sniff he got of goal all game and he took it.

Didnít play well but came away with 2 goals and a point. Iíll take that.
What is evident is that we need an upgrade at RB in January. Sticking Konsa out there when Cash doesnít play isnít the answer. Konsa is our most solid defender and we need him in the middle.
Zaniolo poor again too. Has he had enough time to prove himself now?

Not great, not a disaster. Need to win one of the next two.

Beginning to remind me of the MON era, Not convincing away from home but picking up points.
UE, does need to sort the away set up but I think part of it is squad rotation and we have a few that are not up to it.

I think physical is acceptable, but the majority of challenges made by Bournemouth are illegal according to the rules.

Awful performance. Didn't deserve it but we got a draw so that's something.  Emi our man of the match otherwise Bournemouth would've been out of sight.

They did a job on Douggie in that one just couldnít get him dictating play. Diego Carlos was far too slow and casual all game. Still battled for, and just about, deserved a point against one of the inform teams in the league. Our inability to hold the ball in advanced positions was a real problem and despite his goal Bailey is a huge problem in that regard ( as was Zaniolo) and it means we constantly lost the ball in midfield.

Onwards to Wednesday and letís see how we do against Cit£h.

As I said elsewhere we have written off players like Bailey before and they are doing really well now.

Maybe I am too patient but I am not writing off an italy international just yet

Tough afternoon.

We played against a rugged, snidey side and thoroughly incompetent officials.

A lot of their breaks and chances came from being allowed to man handle us in a way we were denied to them, so credit to us for getting something in the face of that pitiful display of refereeing, again.

Got out of jail there
Great performance from the worlds best goalkeeper and world class goal from Ollie
Fear for our goal difference after the next two games if we have repeat defensive show.

They were the better team on the day. They created more chances and generally outworked us. If not for Emi then they'd have had 4 or 5.

You surely can't have thought we played well today?

I would like to apologise to the world for starting a post-match thread before the final whistle. I now realise that this was a grave error and shows disrespect for women, former slaves, trans and gays, union members, the 35,000 people in the queue for season tickets and balti pies.
