    V Bournemouth

    2nd game in and A must win! 41,000 sell out. So many debuts, it has to click.

    My Team:
    Heaton
    Elmo
    Elgens
    Mings
    Targett
    Hourihane
    Mcginn
    Grealish
    Trezequet
    Algazhi
    Wesley

    I think Taylor did more than enough to keep his place in this one. There was something like 20 successful crosses from the left against spurs, so Elmo has to make way for Guilbert for me, as Fraser plays on the left of the attacking 3 for Bournemouth.

    I think it'll be a tight game, but the VP Crowd will be the 12th man.

    I'd love Wesley to score on his home debut and quiet down the neigh sayers about him.

    I think defensively we were very very good in the middle of the defence against Spuds and dealt with a lot.

    I'd like Luiz to start too

    Heaton
    Taylor
    Engels
    Mings
    Guilbert

    Luiz
    McGinn
    Grealish

    Jota
    Trez

    Wes

    Well no disrespect to Bournemouth but these are the games we should be winning (especially at home)

    Think itíll be same team starting that started against spurs although would like to see luis and guilbert start.

    This is Wesleyís game to make his mark and think score will be 2-0 wesley n Jack 😃

    Glass half full - Heaton won't make too many of those, wasn't luck though - blatant pen, 2nd goal goes in off the post and it's a different game had it rattled the woodwork - but, a very good strike nonetheless, again not luck.

    Luiz excellent, couldn't be shaken off the ball with 2 on him and what a strike!

    Good build-up football but.....

    Glass half empty - Bournemouth in the final third looked far more threatening despite all our possession and pressure. Some of Jack's deliveries were terrible, El Ghazi not beating his man, getting caught offside and no overlap from Taylor. Jota sloppy with his passing after looking strong in pre-season, Wesley huffed & puffed. Clearly the football gods were smiling on the Cherries today allowing them to sit back and let us have the ball - there's a long way to go.

    Back to half full - we haven't seen Targett, Guilbert, Konsa or Nakamba yet!

    Nicely summed up WCV, just where are those fullbacks? Attacking, good crossers of the ball. We had a great pre season but already too many questions. Its a baptism of fire and we are getting punished for bad decisions, we need at least a draw from Everton. Some game thats going to be!!
    Oh well, dust down and go again and hope we get a bit of luck to get us off the mark.

    Could be a blessing in disguise for the team and DS to lose at home in a fixture we need to take points from to have half a chance at this level. Someone has written a great article on Twitter on how we're not using the strengths of Wes who is not an out an out striker like Abraham - his goals to assists ration is almost 1:1, Tammy's was almost 8:1. He's known for holding the ball up and playing in the runner but who is making these runs? Suggestion is a 5-3-2 using Guilbert and Targett as wing-backs, Luiz with Mings & Engels and a midfield Trio of McGinn, Grealish and Hourihane. Trez playing up top with Wes - I like it.

    Bit of a concern that wes isnít seen as an out and out striker when we paid 22 mil for him to be that eh..

    Agree with what ya saying though about giving him some more support as he seems like a real confidence type player that will thrive once heís scored imo so letís do whatever is needed to get the best out of him !
