Norwich vs Bournemouth match thread

Recommended Posts

Bournemouth pressing quite high and we seem to be gambling with the ball at the feet of Krul, Zim and Godfrey.

Cantwell with a few poor touches, but definitely some bright spots with Buendia, Pukki and Duda. Buendia just goes wide on a header from Aarons.

FFS, why did that even go too VAR - the guys diving like a keeper with his hand in the air. Ridiculous..  Cool as you like  from Pukki with the penalty.

The VAR review was apparently for the Redcard, but they even checked to see if Pukki was offside on the initial through ball.

Apparently to check for offside before the handball.

Good save though by Cook. 🤭

But why on earth would you do that? How could that possibly end in Bournemouth’s favour?

Cantwell through to Pukki on goal, saved out towards McLean who chips it towards goal and Cook puts his hand up to save it.

Wasn't it Duda who did well to shoot and Cook saved it with his hand?

Lovely penalty- I'd forgotten last seasons penalty woes until the commentator mentioned it. Absolutely have to win from here.

Utter farce it went to VAR though- it was one of the most obvious decisions I've seen in ages yet we still get 3 or 4 minutes of checks.

Nuffo, the brain is a strange organ, sometimes it short circuits. He wouldn't do that 999 times out of 1000. Glad he did though,  the idiot.

Agreed. 90th min to try and save a point, fair enough. Halfway through first half, even if it stays 0-0 you’ve got an hour to play with ten men. Crazy.

Good first half, a lot of control but not too many chances, never feel safe with a 1-0 lead with this team!!!

Duda has looked very handy with a few nice flicks and first touch passes, need to keep up the pressure in the 2nd half.

OTBC!!!

And Duda denied a goal by Cook too. Pleased he seems to be having an influence.

Enjoyed that half. All us of course but we were on top before the sending off. We are playing a variation of Total football im midfield with some great movement off the ball. We do need that second though. Bournemouth know we can't go above them so will look to stop us.

Amazing how the pundits never really talk about Buendia being worth a small fortune.
