think we'll win this. bournemouth are worse at the back than us and worse up front than us, which is an impressive feat really.

think we'd have won it under pellegrini too, infact i think squad the disruption is the only reason for any doubts.

Just wait until you’re on the long march to the stadium: “Are we nearly there yet?”. :lol:
It should be ok, we're heading off early to grab some grub first

By my watch the pubs are open - few afternoon pints - halves of lemonade shandy for the boy and you'll both be in fine voice by kick-off .

Took my young nephew to Everton in '99 , found a nice little boozer and settled him down then we discovered a Z List Gladiator Celebrity was signing autographs across the road at a MacDonalds - quick 5 minutes in there and back to the pub - we lost 6-0 . :D

I've got a good feeling about this game. 6-0. Maybe 7.

I reckon a Masuaku hat trick.

Something magical will happen either way.

This could be a home win, away win or a 7-7 draw. There are few certainties in life, but Dominic Solanke has yet to score a goal for Bournmouth and Wilson hasn't scored in about a dozen matches...

I'm really looking forward to today, although I think there are going to be quite a few gaps in the stands.

I want to see us looking more disciplined at the back and quicker getting forward. I would like to see 3 at the back with wingers pushing up. It will be interesting to see how the 'new' gaffer deals with our shortcomings in the middle. I don't think Noble is the answer anymore, but I also believe that he will be the first name on the team sheet.

An optimistic 2-1 win

At their best, Diop, Balbuena and Ogbonna have been superb at times. In a back five, with Masuaku and Fredericks bombing forward down the wings, stretching play, linking up with our attack, it could work really well, I hope this may be the way forward.

Rice sitting, sweeping up, regaining possession, recycling the ball, filling in for either full back if needed, Fornals just in front to get things started, pressing high, making intelligent passes, Anderson and Antonio roaming, and pressing, whilst supporting Haller.

0 - 3 Bournemouth.

We beat Leicester. I was there mate, I saw it with my own eyes. Just like we beat Liverpool in that cup final in 06.

Nothing like a good old fashioned relegation dog fight, to start the decade off.

This is what it's all about.
