  1. Howe would (I imagine) talk to the Lansdowns if they reached out for no other reason than proximity. I think a lot of managers will see us as a good opportunity, there are A LOT of contracts coming off the books at the end of June and that provides opportunity that'll be viewed as a bonus, provided he gets the backing he wants. Given we have 39 points on the board, I can't imagine many managers not backing themselves to keep us up- 3 more wins and we'd probably be safe? New manager bounce would probably cover that off As others have said, he may be waiting for a PL job and if Palace comes
  2. It took Josh Brownhill at least 2 full seasons with us to become Josh Brownhill. Semenyo and Bakinson are the two that really have something about them. Neither are consistent, but they're both teenagers (still, I think?). Semenyo reminds me of Raheem Sterling when he was younger in some respects; comes alive when he's on the ball but lacks composure in the final third, something he'll probably develop. Bakinson probably needs to be put in the right midfield (which may not be ours, at least not with the injuries we have). Vyner is a solid championship squad player and may become more
  3. I don't know why people don't think Eddie Howe would consider the job. Not because I think we're particularly attractive right now, but because Bournemouth is just about commutable for him and after his experience at Burnley, it's quite clear that he doesn't want to move from the South Coast. I also think that the Lansdowns may have learned something from the Hughton debacle and that they may be prepared to make some structural changes for the right candidate, even if they won't go as far as getting rid of Ashton

    VAR

    I don't have a problem with the concept of VAR, but the way it's applied is terrible. I'd make the following changes: 1) the ref has to ask for it and ask the video ref to look for a specific infringement 2) the video ref has no more than 60 seconds to review the footage and the ref doesn't get a pitch side monitor. If it takes more than that to determine if someone is offside or it's a handball, then it's not an egregious error
  5. I think he has a point with the VAR; not sure it should apply in the cup given that some ties will have it and some won't. I don't think it was a terrible performance all things considered, but the set up of the team was clearly wrong; you could see that by the way Palmer and especially Semenyo changed the way we played when they came on. But Holden seems a little out of his depth at the mo, even if injuries tend to be working against him

    Towler

    I thought the game passed him by first half, but I thought he was one of our better players second half. Clearly not a wing back, but a good debut
  7. I can forgive Wells playing poorly when he's been in and out the team, played out wide and not had a regular partner. But I can't forgive the lack of interest and engagement he showed tonight. He was shite
  8. Ah, see what you mean. A separate sponsor. I guess it's a hard sell, given the lack of exposure
  9. Lack of sponsor is probably because we're sponsored by a betting company and there are regularly u18s playing
  10. I know it's edited highlights and it's League 2, but I think Edwards has looked pretty sensational so far. The way he uses his body and his turn of pace to get away from his man looks top class. Needs to improve his passing and how he uses the ball, but there definitely seems to be something there PS I hope he doesn't get Covid and that his team mate is alright!
  11. I think that Moore is superior to Vyner. And I think Vyner is a perfectly serviceable squad player provided that he has someone 'senior' alongside them. I think that the same is kind of true regarding Moore, but I think he does a better job of keeping his head above water without quite the same level of support. I'm just speculating based on observations, I'm sure @Davefevs or someone will come along with some stats that prove me wrong! Given that last night's back 3 included 2 inexperienced players and a left back/midfielder up against a very physical, young striker in good form and two very
  12. First time listening to the podcast and I enjoyed it. Perhaps you guys were a little hyperbolic when talking about Bakinson, but the comparison of Holden and LJ was fair and relevant. I'm not as down on LJ as many others, but you're absolutely right about him not trusting young players, where as Holden (forced into it or not) has set a stall out whereby if kids play well, they get a chance to keep the shirt. I don't think anyone though Bakinson would start the season as he has, but credit for Holden for sticking with him and not tweaking things to get the more experienced players on the pitch.
