That's 7 league goals we've scored from 85+ mins this season.

Our last two games have been away from home, gone behind in both and we've come away with four points.

Good return.

I had a feeling we would drop points today.

Glad to get a point.

We've lost 1 of the last 10 in the league going back 2 months. W7 D2 L1. We're doing alright.

Nowhere near good enough, but at least we scrapped something out of the game. We really need to get a grip defensively, we’re conceding a lot of soft goals and chances.

Need to be so much better on Wednesday.

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’m sure Emery will keep improving as will the squad also allowing us the ability to rotate them when needed. MON moved us forward then backwards in his last season.

For a long time it looked like we would lose, we, or rather Diaby and Watkins found a way not to, and I'll take that. A point is better than none.

Big mistake leaving Cash out, they killed us first half down that flank. Carlos too slow Zaniolo should have come off before half time, the Premiership is too quick for him. JM carrying an injury? certainly missed his usual performance. Lucky to get a point.

I always thought it was only admin that could start the match/post match threads. Can any of us start them?

We got a point where we didn't really do enough to deserve. We struggled against their physicality & intensity, as we often do. We never really got the tempo of our game going. Playing on Thursday won't have helped.

Having said that, if the ref had any bollocks they'd have been down to 10 men with more than an hour to play. Woeful performance from a ref I'd never seen before. You can guarantee we'll get an elite ref for our games against the elite teams this week.

But we need to cut out giving away early goals in almost every away game.

We can't win them all but it's the disparity of performance between home and away games that bothers me.

Obviously we need to rotate players, and we have a squad that should enable us to do so without suffering a massive drop off in quality.  But we seem to really struggle when Emery rings the changes.

We already know we need another RB in January, but the way the entire defensive line has to change to give Cash a break is not ideal and clearly doesn't work.

I'm all for giving players time but Zaniolo just doesn't seem to be working out. Maybe we can manage with everyone else fit, or maybe we need to be looking at another midfield option in January too. Might depend on how Buendia is progressing.

It was a bit disjointed. But we kept going.

Bournemouth were much better than I thought they’d be.

We really need to bring in some competition at right back - Ezri is not the answer there. Any injury to Cash and we are massively weakened.
