    Luckiest defence will win - have we used up all our luck recently?
    bring Bertrand back and we will win 3-1

    Djenepo out tomorrow (re-occurence of previous muscle issue)

    Redmond could be available though (decision tomorrow)

    That's not surprising about Djenepo. When he came back on to the pitch to celebrate with the rest of the players on Saturday I noticed his thigh was heavily strapped up, and in his post-macth interview Ralph praised the physios for getting him available to play in the first place.

    Save Redmond for Tuesday, especially it Djenepo will still be out.

    Given absences then, I would go with:

    Gunn

    Danso
    Bednarek
    Yoshida
    Bertrand

    Romeu
    Hoj

    JWPy
    Ingsy
    Boufaly

    Adam's

    On the bench: McCarthyy, Vestergaard, Cedric, Armstrong, Redmond, Longy, O'bafemiy

    I'd play a 3421 as that has been our most reliable formation so far. Have jwp back at wingback and play

    Gunn

    Danso vestergaard bednarek

    JWP Romeu Hoj bertrand

    Adams Ings boufal

    If we had redmond or djenepo I would drop bertrand, have danso at lb and play a 433 with JWP in the 3 man midfield

    Just off the blower to Dave. He reckons we need a front sweeper for this one.

    Hey Dale, Dave said Derek is missing the game this weekend as visiting Brian in Shropshire.

    Lack of creativity if both Redmond and Djenepo miss out. Amazing how quickly Boufal has become a key player.

    Though it pains me to say it, in the cold light of day, Bournemouth and Spurs are more important games than the cup game, so if players need resting, they should be protected for next weekend - Ralph has a balancing act on his hands.
    Next week could see the first local derby in history when we have rested players.
    A sad reflection on the sorry state of them.

    Why would anyone need resting? 8pm Friday > 7.45pm Tuesday (possible pens but no extra time, in a game we should win in second gear) > 3pm Saturday. Even the traveling time for the 2 aways is pretty minimal. If they can't manage those 3 games without needing a rest (genuine injuries aside) they really shouldn't be playing at this level.

    Two very interesting stats from the BBC...

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49684490

    Bournemouth have never won a match at Southampton in any competition (D6, L9).

    Southampton have lost their last four home league games on a Friday, although three of those were in the Championship between 2007 and 2012.

    I know its a Friday night and on TV but surprised at how many tickets are still on sale, mostly at the Chapel end and Itchen / Kingsland South.

    Hopefully 8pm Friday will help get the atmosphere going, the bucket rattlers don't tend to sing much though.
    If either side wins tonight they'll be 3rd in the table, for a few hours at least, would love that to be us but going for 2-2 draw.

    They beat us on their own ground then in a 2 legged tie. The game at the Dell was a draw, so they have never beaten us at home. Let's hope that continues today.

    They'll beat us tonight. 2-0.

    Really? Our top scorer is Djenepo (who sadly won't be playing tonight) with 2 and theirs is Callum Wilson with 3 after that neither team has much in the goals department.

    Yeah rush hour traffic on a Friday is so much fun. Probably no chance for a beer just about enough time to grab some food if I'm lucky. I much prefer making a day of it on a Saturday to working all day and then rushing to get to the game but each to their own.

    Big match today, these are the type of matches we need to win. The Cherries are around us in the table, either move above or fall back into relegation battles

    cricfree has a very odd message

  45. Default

    Cedric, JV, JB and Danso behind

    Hoj and Rom

    with JWP, Boufal and Reds ahead of them

    Adams up front

    or maybe JWP and Cedric as wingbacks and a 3CB

    or even Reds up top with Adams.

    Lots of potential ways to line up there.

    Bit worried about tonight. Think they're dangerous. And the sort of team we underestimate. Would take a draw.

    I think it's a Bertrand thing, not a Danso thing. Bertrand is out for whatever reason and Danso is deemed the best option.
