Very sad day for the Cherries, if they survive another season in the prem, it will be a miracle.
Poor old pommybird. I watched the game to it reminded me of saints earlier in the season it was embarrassing poor quality football even players had dropped their heads early in the game this is what upsets true home fans.I don't like to say but, you have moved in to my three teams who have had it
NORWICH
BOURNEMOUTH
VILLA
The only team who played worse than you were villa, this is the wrong time of year to be where you are all i cane say is thank gawd it's not us good fortune mate you will need it

he's jinxed for sure

2 weeks ago the 11 on the pitch got 24 points with the 4 on the bench getting 45, which sums up my judgement this year.

Vardy retired from England duties, apparently has been chased to come out but won't unless he's a starter.
Kane, obviously (if fit). Although nowhere near his best before injury.
Ings, deserves a shot - might flop, might succeed.
Rashford, I feel like he deserves to be there, for sure.
Sterling, 1,000,000,000% has to feature.

If Kane's out, I suspect Vardy would be starting most games. It's a shame that a player of his ability feels the need to dictate that he has to be a starter or he won't play for England...... If that is his attitude, I'll take him off my list.

It's what I've heard on a podcast...but they're generally quite accurate and well enough connected to see it as truth, not just a good guess.

Ings should be given a fair chance. He has proved himself.

It's nice to see England with a few options up top again. It did get a bit bleak for a few years.
