    I think that there could be a bit of a language problem at the moment. Sarr was called off after a great afternoons work. He didn't look impressed, and when Pearson put his arm round him and said something, Sarr still looked as if he was about to throw a tantrum. Shortly after that Doucouré was withdrawn, and Pearson looked as if he was asking him to explain that he had not pulled Sarr for anything other than game management.

    I don’t mind them lauding NP, but credit must be given to Troy’s style of captaincy. When you watch the hghlights, I urge you to watch how he captains Doucoure during the celebrations after Doucoure has scored. Awesome.

    Gray tries really hard and seems to care about the team but I don't think that he is quite good enough for the Premier League. A bit like Vydra in that respect.

    It certainly was a 100% team performance.. And it is not the often there is not a player who does not make the mark...
    Onwards and Upwards!

    Great interview from Jon Marks with Troy. He said you must really have enjoyed being out there today. Would you have enjoyed trying to keep up with those two? I somehow think he was talking about Deulofeu and Sarr.

    NP And Sarr is reason we are on such a good run .Before NP Sarr was playing up front so all they had to do was stop Del boy .Buff took Ake out of his best position to stop Sarr with his pace and Sarr still got involved in both goals

    Speechless. What a great day, summed up by the togetherness of fans and Chalobah at the end. Amazing. Simply amazing. What a shame Bournmouth don't have an active not606 board...imagine the banter! ;)

    Ake was definitely not fit. I wouldn't mind betting that he will be out again now for a couple of weeks at least as he really struggled.

    Anyone that has to take on Sarr for 90 min will have to rest for a few weeks

    He was holding his back and bending over a few times, he should have come off or not been on in the first place. At least it shows his commitment.

    Doucoure was on painkillers and had not trained all week and played better than we have seen for a while
    Looks like he is back to his best
    The front six will just pick themselves for the next few games, the defence will be the best four out of who is fully fit but for the last five games that has not made much of a difference
    We do have a really good squad

    Ake is a class player he holds there center together and with out him they have been dropping like a stone ,But EH knew he had to try and stop Sarr or they could lose 3/4 nil

    After Man City's result against Villa and our clean sheets our goal difference is looking much better.
    Team wise one thing I have noticed is Delo is tracking back more and biting peoples legs when the need arises, in the past he has coasted a bit at times despite his obvious skills. Perhaps NP threatened to put him on the transfer list <whistle>

    They could not stop Sarr and since NP has played him in his true position very few have been able to stop him He is just coming up to 22 so still leaning
