Thread: Bournemouth (A) - Build Up

  1. Default Bournemouth (A) - Build Up

    Ugh. A win could do a lot for the confidence, but we don't have the confidence or defenders to be able to win.

    I'll go 3-1 Bournemouth. Saints score first, then panic and start dropping deep. The usual.

    3-0 Bournemouth. Too much pace, will cause our shambles of a defence all sorts of problems.

    CHERRIES are sweating on the fitness of striker Joshua King after he curtailed training with Norway yesterday due to an ankle problem.

    Small blessing I suppose.

    I honestly don't know if I care about the result any more.

    Bournemouth are an odd one, win 4-0 one week, lose 4-0 another week.

    Defensively neither team are particularly good.

    Need at least a point from this and I think we'll have to score to get that much. I just hope that we don't try to shut up shop too early in the game because we can't defend when under pressure. Three points would be a massive lift all round so I'm staying positive and going 2 - 1 Saints.

    3-0 Bompey, too good for us at the moment unfortunately

    They'll be too quick for our slow and clumsy defence.

    2-0 Bournemouth.

    Can't wait to see us fail to defend a corner in the 93rd minute...

    2-3 to the Saints! Put your house on it!

    Can't really see beyond a comfortable 2-0 home win here, they're a better side than us at the moment and our defence is incapable of shutting out teams with pace.

    They're far the better side but they usually bottle it against us. Score draw.

    Defeat. Including goals-against late on in each half.

    Hughes will say we spoke about not doing that during the week.

    Vestegaard to open his account with a scrambled equalizer.

    I actually agree with this- usually we are better away- so I’ll say 1-1, but we will dominate first 65 mins

    Yep nothing suggests anything but home win. Go one better and nick a 1-0

    We canít hold a lead and they are best at recovering from conceding first,

    As usual with Saints, almost impossible to predict. But we are better away from home and if Hughes cannot lift them for this he should walk Monday morning. I think we might get something out of this. 2-2 perhaps.

    My enthusiasm this season has got so low, and the constant International Breaks have led to me never knowing who our next game is against or when!!

    A few weeks back I took some last minute leave back to UK and only then noticed we were playing Liverpool and I was going to be in the area. (Un)Luckily I managed to get a ticket, but nprmally my 1st part of leave planning
    is to try and make it coincide with a Saints match!!

    This weekend I had to look on here to find out who we are playing.

    Sadly I don't think I am alone in this lack of caring mode.

    Unfortunately i don't see points nor the sort of thumping that'll heap pressure on Hughes.
    Probably a 2-1 defeat, where he'll try and deflect blame onto ref.

    This thread is pretty damning.

    We are massive relegation candidates. In truth, probably the side most likely to drop after Cardiff and Hudds.

    Hoping for a draw and a point earned against a well drill side who like to play attacking football with a never give in attitude.

    Traffic will be utterly horrendous getting into Bournemouth. If you haven't left by Friday lunchtime, forget it

    Jeez, weíre crapping ourselves silly over Bournemouth smashing us, and Iím getting pelters from the Cherries fan at work.

    I canít believe this is what we have become. If ever there was a time for a morale boosting victory, this is it.

    Anyone thinking of driving needs their head testing. The Spur Road is an absolute joke, no fun commuting on that every day I can tell you! Just park up somewhere, anywhere, and get the train into Bournemouth.

    Win or lose I just hope we give it a go and try and win the game. If we do that and lose, fine. But playing ultra defensive, looking for a draw and then ****ing it up again will be hard to take. If we play like that and get thumped Hughes is done. He already has a worse record than MP2 in the league and we know how **** that was.

    Just think, even if we do lose, they'll always be ****ing Bournemouth, they'll always have a support of mostly Spurs, Arsenal & Utd fans, and they'll never leave Dean Court.

    Oh, and one day we'll probably have their current manager (he's very interested in coming here).

    So it's not all doom and gloom.

    Les has outdone even my pessimistic expectations and made us worse than little old Bournemouth

    Definitely winnable. Hope to see a performance full of pride and purpose. Massive local derby. Time for the players to step up for Hughes. Getting close to make or break time for him.

    Anyone driving, then recommend you turn left before Ringwood & head to Sopley & across the Avon Causeway - will still add 20-30 minutes to journey but gonna be less than the carnage on the A338

    Bournemouth are an average squad but they have a really good manager and a couple of good finishers, so they'll beat us.

    Think it'll be close but 1-0 or 2-1.

    I mean Hughes isn't going to win a game is he, not unless half the Bournemouth team are out injured.

    The key is that if its a derby to their players then ours have to treat it like that as well.

    They are high tempo so we need to match that or have no chance.

    That's a decent option but can be queued as far back as Hurn Sports Centre on a bad day. Another good option is take the A35 as far as Christchurch, cut across past the station thorugh Fairmile and join the A338 there. Or just go straight on at Christchurch and don't use the Spur Road at all.

    Pressure is totally off now. An already relegated Saints (ok I know it's not mathematically done yet, but it's done) against currently one of the leagues best teams pushing for Europe. We'll probably win!

    Easy money at the bookies again. Like every week with Hughes in charge. If we want him gone we sort of need to lose badly
