The start to our 3 games in quick succession we face Bournemouth. Who currently sit 7th.

Hopefully we go in to the match like we did today and not give them any respect. After the home match with Gus's very soft red you would hope the boys would be fired up for some revenge.

Feels like a free hit as such and a draw would be a brilliant result.

Go for it, but no sendings off please. Their player Billing is one of the best players in the division imo. Should be in the PL.

Would take a point after today, but I hate this "free hit" nonsense. Every game is an opportunity to take points and should be seen as that.
Completely agree no such thing as a free hit at this stage of the season . But would happily take a point now . Let’s try and get to the last game of the season safe

Not a free hit but perhaps more stress free than some other games

After the results today I would be delighted with a point here.

We have to play the same formation and personnel though. Get them used to playing that system as that's what we should be doing for the rest of the season. Accepting a point is a good result doesn't mean reverting to 3-stodge-1 no energy, no pressing shitball.

We obviously should be going to win the game ...but I'd be fucking buzzing if we walk away with a point .

However realistically

Bournemouth 3-1 city

Hope they have a bad day and we work hard to get a result

Back to 5 in midfield as we're going to need the extra man there.

I can see Walker starting as Godden has only just come back from injury and took a knock

Hopefully keep it tight and nick a point.

Godden is a conundrum. He needs minutes but at the same time it looks like his injury still needs managing.

I wouldn’t let him anywhere near the Bournemouth game. Imagine him getting injured in a comprehensive defeat and being unavailable for Rotherham, gutting

While it’s likely we lose this idea of just writing off games is half the problem. Play the same way we did yesterday and if Godden tires send on Gyo. We don’t really do ‘holding it tight’

Whoever is at RWB will be a target for them. They are strong down that side. Didn’t all their goals come from that side last time out?

not writing it off just protecting possibly our greatest asset for a bigger game. Why not start with Gyo and bring on Godden (maybe) when the pace drops later on?

feel like if we play like yesterday we might get a point out of this, a win then it takes the pressure off the rotherham game, id leave godden on the bench till 60 minutes regardless of the score.

Also an option, just think we’re likely to give them a harder game by not making it an attack v defence training session. Let’s have the confidence to play the same way against anyone.

Our away form has been terrible, so the best we can probably hope for is a draw. Easter Monday’s results did us a few favours.

Bournemouth are one of the most cynical teams in the division (along with Cardiff and Swansea). I wouldn't risk Godden getting an 'accidental' injury from one of their players. I look forward to Hamer coming on as a sub though and hopefully playing like someone with a point to prove (as well as a score to settle!)

Its not about confidence though, its about managing a key player with an injury.
He may be ok. He might have just been being cautious when he went down yesterday but it would be gutting to lose him for some of the so called more winnable games.

Got a lot more confidence in Gyokeres deputising after yesterday.

Agree. No criticism of Eccles who did well but this is really not his position. Problem is Dacosta would worry me more.

MASSIVE ask but win this one and beat Rotherham and you're very close to being safe, I'd argue you'd only need another point from the remaining 5 games left.

I was meaning more in terms of the shape/game plan rather than Gyo vs Godden

I agree. Same again. Hopefully Godden was just being precautionary when he went down holding his foot.
He seemed to be moving ok immediately after

The Bristol game was all about the result...3 points or we would be staring at relegation.
Bournemouth game more about performance. Build on Bristol in terms of formation, attitude etc and we may just surprise ourselves (and them). But even a narrow loss with a decent performance will still give players and supporters optimism for the following games.

Godden could probably do with coming off the bench instead of starting for the time being, Biamou is better than Baka, Bapaga could bring the pace and trickery, Hamer shouldn’t start as the midfield was so good yesterday, Reid should have a chance, Thompson because I dont know anything has happened to Rose or Hyam, Wilson is no.2 for now as Marosi had a good game to be fair

Isn't Max injured - hence Baka's inclusion against Brizzle?
