Saturday in the Prem

It's another busy, packed Saturday of Premiership and Championship fixtures today. We start on the South Coast with Bournemouth v. Spurs, a real test of Tottenham's ability to be real title challengers. Then we've got the usual 10am fixtures, including Arsenal v. Boro and Leicester v. Palace. Then we finish up with Liverpool and West Brom at 12:30pm. Join me for all the action today here on the LOB!

Unfortunately for the Cherries, they lost their top scorer Junior Stanislas to injury in training during the week and then lost Andrew Surman during the warm-up just a few moments ago.

7:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great to see two sides playing in their traditional kits.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, Bob. Great to join you . How was you r week?

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Cherries nearly scored two minutes in when Lloris , doing his best impersonation of Banksie, superbly deflected a close range effort from Charlie Daniels on to the bar off a corner.

7:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, MUR - great to have you on board as usual. I had a busy but good and productive week. October is always one of my busiest months. You?

7:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Whenever I hear the name Charlie Daniels, I always expect to see a bearded bloke playing a fiddle.

7:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LOL. I always think of his brother, Jack Daniels AKA J.D.

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wilshere puts through Callum Wilson, whose shot comes off Vertonghen for a corner

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner is off of Wnyama for another.

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The curling corner is caught by Lloris. The Cherries have already won five,

7:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Lamella shot nearly crept in the Bournemouth goal - off the angle. Deathly quiet in the ground as that shot came off Lamella's foot.

7:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And Lamella promptly picks up the game's first yellow card.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A rare Spuds attack as they break and Lamela is picked out by Alli and the long range effort clips the outside of the post as Boruc was rooted to the spot.

7:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That was for a foul on Adam Smith. Is that Voodoo economics, mate?

7:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wanyama's not a popular bloke around these parts, after his time at the Saints.

7:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I should say so, not exactly the "invisible hand," or "invisible foot," I should say.

7:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This is a competitive match, just as expected.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks for the clarification. I always enjoy your economics analysis

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. The Cherries have shown their depth by replacing the injured Stanilslaus with Josh King and the ill Andrew Surman with Dan Gosling. Not too shabby for a supposedly tiny club. The Cherries have depth thanks to some astute signings by Eddie Howe.

7:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Cheers, mate.

Eddie Howe has done a splendid job here on the South Coast.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

AN update: Burton Albion defeated the Blue Noses 2-0 yesterday. A creditable start to the season for Burton Albion in their first ever season in the Championship.

7:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Powerful run by Dembele but his pass comes to nothing. Most of Spurs' attacks are being broken up on the 18 yard mark.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Who would have expected the likes of Jack Wilshere playing for the Cherries ? a sign of their progress.

7:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Definitely. I don't know much about Burton, but there must be a moneybags owner behind their success, right?

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boruc does well to turn around a deflected effort from eriksen

7:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

They've made some canny purchases and loans, including Wilshere and Jordan Ibe.

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Eric Dier's header was one off the corner from Lamela. Enough said about that

7:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Is Eddie Howe a potential future England manager or would it not be worth the headache for him?

7:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Spurs will be expected to win this one but The Cherries are no mugs.

7:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Eddie was even in the frame this time but was thought too young in the end.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I actually agree with that. He has one full season of top flight experience and with a small club. Now that he's showing that he can manage some egos, his future prospects should improve.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Vertonghen is booked for a foul on Callum Wilson on a potential Cherries break.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Delli Alli is booked for sandwiching former Spuds trainee, Adam Smith. Is that economical?

8:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lamella's in trouble here with the ref. Surely that should be his second yellow but Referee Pawson gives him a break. Surely that's his last chance, though.

8:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lamela fortunate not to be shown a second yellow. Like Fred, he must have nine lives.

8:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Spurs boys don't seem to have any time for the free market this morning.

8:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Is Fred watching with you this morning, or is he catching up on his kip?

8:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Harry Arter seems to be everywhere today; certainly The Cherries' most industrious player.

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Danny Rose booked for nasty foul on Josh King, who must seem like a royal pain to the former LUFC trainee. Did he learn that behavior at the esteemed LUFC Academy?

8:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Danny Rose is the latest recipient of a yellow card from Craig Pawson. This is building up for sure.

8:13 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I don't think so - we run a clean academy program. Must have picked that up at Shite Fart.

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. That accolade could go to a couple of other Cherries such as Adam Smith and Charlie Daniels.

8:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks for the clarification. You have been of great assistance this morning.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Two minutes of stoppage time.

8:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A great run down the left by Jordan Ibe and snatched wide by Callum Wilson.

8:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Well, this first half has slipped away without too much incident and without any goals.

Peep peep - the half-time whistle goes.

8:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 0-0 at the end of a half that has been far more entertaining than the scoreline would suggest

8:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Plenty of effort, intensity and all that, but two statistics stand out: there have been two shots on target, and five yellow cards. There probably should have been six, Erik Lamela fortunate to escape a second booking. So the second half will be a card watch for sure.

8:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Teams coming back out on the South Coast.

8:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Delle Alli warms the hands of Boruc early on. Decent effort.

8:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

No half-time changes for either team. I don't know why more teams don't try one change at the break.

8:36 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm back from taking Melanie to ACT testing. That's her last SAT or ACT , so as they say, let the chips fall where they may.

8:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lamella went streaking through there off Ericsson's flick but Daniels got back to win the challenge.

8:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Best of luck to Melanie this morning.

8:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I don't think the Cherries need to make a change. I'm sure Eddie Howe is content. It may be wise to replace Lamela, who is on the brink of a meltdown that would please Donald Trump.

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cheers,mate. Greatly appreciated.

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lamela with a wayward shot in anger , which also seems like Donald Trump.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Josh King is off for treatment due to a head injury . The Cherries cannot afford to lose another striker.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Josh King is back in the thick of the action as he concedes a free kick.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Max Gradel, a former crowd pleaser at ER, is on for Jordan Ibe.

8:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Number One Son makes his last contribution and then off he goes.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Number one Son must feel like number two as he's replaced by Vinny Jansen.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

One of your former LUFC favorites came on for the Cherries a minute earlier.

8:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sad to see what has happened to Max Gradel. He was a hero at Leeds - now he's an also-ran coming off the bench for a middling Premiership side. I hope the money is good.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kyle Walker is fouled just outside the box by the Wee former LUFC player.

8:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Those changes were made right on the hour mark - regular as clockwork.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lamela curls a free kick straight to Boruc.

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's a good pint. He did well in France, but I think he's had injury problems too.

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LOL. It does seem that substitutions have to be like clockwork. Not like the good old days when substitutions were made because the manager deemed them necessary.

8:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This is exactly the kind of match that Spurs have to win in order to prove to me that they are true title contenders. Unfortunately, they draw far too many of these.

8:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Agreed, MUR - it's as if modern managers have a handbook that they all consult.

8:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Grades into the book now for a pull on the shirt. More of a culmination of offenses.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nice trickery by Gradel then his shot is blocked by teammate, Wilshere. Gradel is then booked for pulling back a player.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. The Spuds failed to deliver in key matches last term. It may come down to their form at the tail end of the season.

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Dan Gosling is down, holding his hammy.He is up, but Eddie Howe will be keeping an eye on him.

8:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Wanyama is down off a challenge from Harry Arter. Is this footie or a world title fight?

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Delli Alli, who was sandwiched by the Cherries players, is off for Sissoko.

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sissoko on now - can he help Spurs break the deadlock?

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I was surprised to see Alli go off. If you want to win the match, you'd leave him on and withdraw someone defensive like Dier or Wanyama. Throw caution to the wind, a bit.

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. It's like for like, but he could have supported Delli Alli instead of leaving him sandwiched.

9:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A comfortable near post save by Boruc from Danny Rose.

9:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Harry Redknapp is back at the place where his managerial career began. That was at a time when he was in football for the right reasons.

9:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sisokho with a nasty push on Harry Arter, who doesn't appreciate it as a fight nearly breaks out.

9:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Big decision here for Referee Pawson. He giving Sissoko and Arter a bollocking. Clear elbow from Sissoko - don't know why he went off.

9:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The replay shows that it was a clear elbow. Surely, he will be suspended once it reviewed on video.

9:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

An intriguing final fifteen minutes, particularly for Spurs. A point is fine, but a much better result for Bournemouth. A win after such an even, intense encounter would feel momentous.

9:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree. How did the ref not see that?

9:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Afobe on now for the last ten minutes.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Banik Afobe is on for Callum Wilson. It's one striker for another, but Afobe is more physical compared to the pacy Wilson.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

To last ditch tackles to prevent close range efforts for the Cherries.

9:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Again - why bring off your goalscorer at this point! So negative from Eddie Howe.

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A three match ban means that Sissokho will not be available until the weekend before Thanksgiving thanks also to an international break. He will only be available for a CL match prior to the break

9:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

More subs now....(sigh)....

9:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ryan Fraser , a winger signed from Aberdeen, is on for Josh King. I think this change was due to an injury.

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gradel wins a tackle , goes on a speedy solo run, but his final touch is poor as he's tackled for a corner.

9:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner is headed away instead of elbowed by Sissokho.A cross by Simon Francis is headed inches over by Afobe.

9:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into three minutes of stoppage time.

9:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Howe the Cherries would consider a draw a good result.The Spuds may consider it a shite fart of a result.

9:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This match between the Captains of Industry finishes 0-0.

9:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's it - a dull 0-0 draw in the end with six yellows and precious few actual scoring opportunities.

9:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Spurs show themselves again to be not ready for the title push.

9:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Next up - Arsenal and Boro on NBS Sports Network and Swansea on CNBC.

9:24 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'll be watching the Arsenal, who I do think are a true title contender. These are the teams lining up now:

Arsenal: Cech; Bellerín, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Coquelin, Elneny; Walcott, Özil, Iwobi; Sanchez

Middlesbrough: Valdes; Barragán, Ayala, Gibson, Friend; De Roon, Forshaw; Clayton, Traoré, Ramírez; Negredo

Oh - nearly a freak away goal for Boro there. How did Traore not score there. Cech with a fabulous double save.

10:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A rare attack for Boro and Cech makes a close range save from Adama Traore then saves the rebound from Negresdo then George Friend is fouled just outside the box.

Goal for Burnley against Everton. It’s a dreadful mistake by last week’s hero, Maarten Stekelenburg. This week the giant Dutchman may well end up being the villain, with Vokes poking home his second goal in as many matches after netting at Southampton on Sunday.
