    Which club, man for man, has a better first team?
    Not even close tbf......don't think a single Brighton player would make the Bournemouth first 11.

      Solanke @ £19m 8 appearances, 2 starts, no goals, couldn't even score against us.
      Solanke is another that fits the Eddie Howe mould... Young, British, and bursting with potential... He just needs a chance with us, something that up until now he's not been able to get... He's set up a couple of goals in his cameos and always looks lively... Trouble is when you've Wilson and King ahead of you, you're going to have to work damned hard to get ahead of them in the XI... He'll definalty come good next season adn I reckon he'll push hard for a starting spot...

      Stats can very often be misleading...

      To be fair I thought Bissouma looked decent and caused us a lot of trouble it the first half... Drifted as the game went on and his attempt to get back to defend Wilson's eventual goal was laughable... he may as well just stood and watched...

      I've seen a lot about how well Bournemouth have done in the Premier League

      BUT have they really?

      2015/16 Position 16th Points 42
      2016/17 Position 9th Points 46
      2017/18 Position 12th Points 44
      2018/19 Position 12th Points 41 (4 games to go), maybe 46

      Their record is good up to a point, but successful? It's arguable. Reportedly they have spent more money than a fair few clubs and in four seasons their highest number of points is 46. Not much sign of the progression that people seem to expect from our team and Hughton?

      That said, would I rather watch their brand of football to ours even if it got similar results? definitely yes.
      And that I think is a key point.

      And for a club their size and history (and ours for that matter) that's respectable, and as they've rarely been caught up in relegation battles - impressive.

      I must have seen them about twice this season (apart from our games) so i've no idea. But you've clearly watched them A LOT Icy. So fair enough.
      Lol that would have been a good answer in the 1950s before the advent of modern communications

      I'd happily take their final positions in the league and the type of football they play. With our infrastructure we could build very well on top of that.

      Stephens allowing Wilson three touches close to goal without a tackle was way worse

      I like Bissouma (maybe more the potential player than the actual player) - but on reflection he goes missing in second halves quite frequently. In a few games he's dominated midfield for a period and then become quite ineffectual. Don't know if that's fitness, concentration or teams figuring him out.

      Everyone thinks this about their team especially after what happened Saturday.

      Go back to the FA cup game when you were struggling for form, it would be a different story.
      The greater their ignorance, the stronger their opinions.

      I'd buy that for a dollar!
