    Jamal Lewis

    And yet Byram is so much better defensively than Lewis, and we look more solid with Byram in our defence. It's a very thin line and choice as both have different attributes

    Press Conference

    And if anyone gets injured, as first half has shown (embarrassingly) it a) shows we're in big trouble & b) we don't have strength in squad to replace them & c) shows that not strengthening is a very naive view to take. It maybe that Farke's hands are tied re: limited funds Can't believe farke has even added Amadou into equation as defensive cover-He's been poor more times than good in that position

    My concern about this, and looking beyond to next season "if" we get relegated were this defence wasn't good enough at Championship level last season, and a record haul for champions. No improvements means we'll struggle for rest of this season, and we'd expect some sort of overhaul next season regardless of where we end up

    Team for Bournemouth

    With Farke normally taking half a season to blood in his new recruits, we shouldn't expect to see Duda or Rupp very soon lol I think it's long overdue we see Amadaou in the middle and stake his claim as the purported £12m cdm we got him for. Would like to see Duda thrown straight in at No.10 with Cantwell and Beundia flanking him and supporting Pukki. Trouble is Farke rarely changes his starting 11, so expect Tettey will be in the middle with Vrancic, and probably McClean starting at No.10 We do seem to be the only team to get players and never throw them straight in!

    Lukas Rupp

    Says he can play anywhere across midfield, or can play full back! Let's hope he doesn't Rupp-ture anything early on lol

    Lukas Rupp

    Not sure how at only 5.11. Strange one this. Doesn't really address any of the areas we desperately need strengthening. Is he an attacking or defensive midfielder?

    Prudence v Naviety

    Totally agree with and been saying it all season. No one expected us to do a Villa nd spend £120m, and no-one expected us to repeat investment on the Naysmiths & Klose's of this world around £7-10m. But our scouting has been good and has proven that players like Hernendez, Zimmermann & Buendia are out there. So I can't believe that players couldn't have been bought for around £5m more or less that would have improved the squad. Byram is an excellent addition at £750k, but the summer signings have been extremely poor with his exception and we always needed to improve our defence

    Time to go Delia

    When has having a contract at a club ever stopped a player or manager leaving. It happens every window. We have a complacent Board. They have run this club well and say they have its best interests at heart. If Farke goes, they will stay and simply look to replace. We the fans will then have to see whether the manager can take the team forward again, or we are left with several years of mediocrity. At the end of the day they don't care. NCFC is a business to them.

    But like you, you'll keep watching him, whereas Dortmund might recruit him. Doubt we could compete with them. And then we 're left with unambitious board, and no manager

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    I agree. I think knew this season was a major uphill battle and would have little in terms of funding. But we have a great coach, yet if we lose him, we are royally f*cked. How long will he stay around?

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    Whats so frustrating is every time we get promotion, we go up with no lessons learnt and no backing. So one questions why have any ambition at all?

    Well said

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    Trouble is, due to Delia & Co's complete lack of ambition, if we lose Farke & Webber, it's back to many years of mediocrity. What a missed opportunity this season. We're back to Doncasters "prudence with ambition" yet Deila just wants prudence!

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    Nice to see us make subs on 65mins. Oh hang on too late we were already 3-0 down. I question why Amadou is here, given he can't get a run in the midfield position we've been overrun in all season?

    Srbeny off?

    Steady on. We did splash out less than £1m!!!!
