Huge win but

Post by cricketfieldclarets » Sat Dec 21, 2019 4:55 pm

That was bloody dreadful. One shot between us all game.

Wins a win especially in a six pointer but we definitely need some pace, skill and creativity especially out wide.

Can we just cut and paste all the Newcastle comments so we don't have to go through all this again...

Given we now have 24 points from 18 games, and third from bottom only have 15 from 18, it's looking likely that less than 38 will be enough to stay up. 35-36 could do it meaning just 4 more wins from out remaining 20 games.

I hope this can now instill a bit more confidence and looser purse strings next month.

Poor game. It could be worse. We could be at home with zero shots on goal and points.

No pleasing some people. Great result, played some good football in the first half, a little under the cosh second half, not helped by the weather. Bournemouth didn’t look anything special either, they suffered because of the conditions too

We can’t control the call or pass but who cares - we are in the top half of the table

Fantastic to get 3 points but needed match sticks for the eyes

Conditions were poor of course. And im one who prefers results over style and can appreciate a backs to the wall performance. But we really need to take this opportunity now to improve our style and squad age.

Indeed. And absolutely agree thats the most important thing. But theres little wonder attendences are dropping and we struggle to attract players who get fans off their feet.

I know Taylor has not played many matches BUT in the minutes he has been on the pitch for us we have yet to concede.

Yep, I was thinking of mentioning that before KO... I thought better of it though :)
