Re: Academy Granted Category 1 ststus

This work started when Jon Pepper took over as academy manager in 2016. Eddie Howe appointed Jason Blake as academy manager, Blake all but lost us category 3 status which would have seen the academy shut down altogether. The work started by Eddie Howe is now firmly, and mercifully, behind us. Tony,...

Re: MIGHTY CLARETS versus SheffU

So different from the last game. Such a shame we lost Cork so we couldn't play the same way.

Pieters injured, possibly Bardsley too.

We're sitting ducks for West Ham but let's hope we can string something together.

Rodriguez is in a different class on the ball. McNeil nicks the ball of their player, runs into trouble and Rodriguez steps in buys the foul. Excellent stuff.

Re: MIGHTY CLARETS versus SheffU

The stars on the BBC are quite interesting, we have had more possession The way possession is calculated doesn't always make sense like you think it would. It's based on passes more than how often, or how long you have ball. Interesting read if you have the time: http://leastthing.blogspot.com/2012...

Common. Just what we needed. So damn lucky. United defending too deep for our freekicks. Didn't do their homework in defence.

Brilliant from Tarkowski staying onside and reacting first. That's what you get when you're marked at the other end by a centre forward.

van Aanholt should have been booked for a deliberate clip earlier on in our own half and still didn't get booked for this. He must think he can foul all he wants in this game. Ref very poor.
