It's a three-horse race - the draw was a bigger runner than an AEK win (about 6-1 I think).Agreed …I looked at those odds for last nights match and thought they were a bit crazy for basically a two horse race ..and even more so considering our non existent experience in Europe, as against the opposition.
Again I feel Sundays are attractive for a punt (one you hope to lose lol)… but maybe a draw
I was happy to take those crazy odds ..but would gave been happy to loseIt's a three-horse race - the draw was a bigger runner than an AEK win (about 6-1 I think).
They basically work out the draw/away odds as a function of the shortest price, so if a home team is 1-5, like we were last night, the draw/away odds will always be around 6-1 and 14-1.
Does he? Serious question. I don't know. The thing is with flair players like him is that they tend to be really good or (look) really bad with often little or nothing in between and no apparent reason. He could win us the Bournemouth match single handedly or almost so or he could be a passenger. I guess if he does need a rest that RDZ will know and do the right thing. Could be a difficult call, though. Imagine the meltdown here if RDZ left him out and we drew or lost.Did he mention Mitoma? He seriously needs a rest.
I actually think having a physical tough game might work in our favour . Bournemouth won’t be as physical.Sorry to be a buzzkill, but I am far less confident about Bournemouth this week than I was about Utd last weekend.
It's not just the injuries...
Bournemouth have looked better than their results would suggest so far this season.
They will also have had a whole week to prepare compared to 2 days for us. Thursday evening fixtures are well-renowned for having a significant impact on EPL team performances/results for the following gameweek and this will be our first experience of having to handle this.
