Who should start against Bournemouth?
11 fit , jack bastards
Naughton (if fit if not Cork). Mawson Fernandez Ollson
Fer Cork (if he's right back then Leon)
Narsingh. Siggy Montero
Have a right go at these bunch of twats
will Llorente be fit? If so then obviously go w/ him.
what about Naughton? If not then I say go w/ Tyler Reid or Connor Roberts. I really didn't like Amat at RB.
other than that, the standard Clement line-up b/w Narsingh over Routs.
----------------- Fabianski -----------------
Routs/Naughton - Fede - Alfie - Kingsley/Olsson
--------------- Cork ---- Carroll ----------------
----Ayew -------- Siggy ------- Narsingh ----
---------------- Llorente/Baston ----------
If we need to change shape it could be done with one player change.
If either injured
*. Tyler Reid or Connor Roberts
Naughton - Mawson - Fernandez - Olsson
Cork - Carroll - Fer
Routledge - Llorente - Siggy
Alternative if players are out:
Amat - Masson - Fernandez - Kingsley
Cork - Carroll - Fer
Routledge - Siggy - Narsingh
Ideally Routledge isn't anywhere near the starting XI.
I'd be quite surprised to see Routs starting this weekend; I finally had the nerve to watch the game back and Clement's blatant disgust at Routledge's second miss makes me think he wants him nowhere near the attacking three.
Also speaking quickly of the Hull match, the worst thing about that match was that it was Hull who won and got closer. It was a fucking awful match of football and two defensive lapses cost us the match. On another day and another pitch we probably would've got something from that. I fully expect us to be playing well against Bournemouth this weekend. I think our performance against Hull was a blip and one that should be rectified.
Second attempts was on his left foot ... the one he uses for standing on ... so wasn't abad effort for him.
Watch some of the ManU Chelsea game and there were several misses far worse than Routledge's.
Read something that made it sound like Llorente will be out for a few weeks. I hope he isn't pushed into playing if he's not fit ... just think to his first few months!
I've seen Ayew as Routs' natural replacement and with a ratio of 1 goal in 5 in the PL he looks to be more productive in the final third. Not sure we a defence that would cope with another stay up front midfield player!
Narsingh scores 1 in 15
Montero 1 - 34
Routledge 1 -10
For me, Rangel is a bigger loss than Naughton (who also may not be fit) because of his impact on the selected squad as well as on the pitch.
As yet we don't know if Clement prefers better players out of position, lesser player in position or 'your professional - play with pain killers' so his selection will be interesting.
I feel we don't have a team that is capable of beating Bournemouth. (Glass isn't even wet let alone half empty!)
Olsson ........Fede ........Hoorn .........Kingsley
Routledge..... Fer .............Brtton ..............Ki
I know Routs would infinitely prefer to have two right feet .... but FFS he was not more than 6 yards out. A firm side foot with his left peg would have planted the ball deep into the back of the net. My dead aunt could have done that. For a Prem league player not to have sufficient composure, competence and confidence to do that is mind boggling. In fact it was so bad that I thought a Hull player had managed to get in the way and deflected it for a corner.
And as IanABS94 said, Clement was absolutely out of his mind with that miss.
A professional footballer who can't use his weak foot to put a ball in an open net from 10 yards? He needs to use it for standing?
I haven't seen anything on Llorente so we'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out exactly who is missing. I saw a video earlier than had Olsson training on a stationary bike so he might be fit enough. If Naughton or Olsson can't play then we'll probably see a youngster and Kingsley.
I saw the highlights of the U23 game against Wolves. Montero played and did not feature in any of the highlights .... pretty sad state of affairs.
LATEST INJURY NEWS

PLAYER CONDITION LATEST NEWS EXPECTED RETURN AVAILABLE?
A Rangel Metatarsal Fracture June 1, 2017 Major Doubt
F Llorente Dead Leg March 18, 2017 Slight Doubt
M Olsson Ankle Injury March 18, 2017 Slight Doubt
K Naughton Hamstring Injury March 18, 2017 Slight Doubt
N Dyer Achilles Injury No Return Date Major Doubt
Hmm, hopefully Naughton, Olsson & Llorente can shake off their injuries then. Would be great to have them back for this one. I generally hate international breaks but this one might be critical to get some fitness back.
Let's just compare Narsingh and Routs per whoscored. Looking at their history for all competitions.
18 goals, 8,134 minutes played = 0.19 goals per 90 minutes.
22 assists, 8,134 minutes played = 0.24 assists per 90 minutes.
0.19 + 0.24 = 0.43 goals created per 90 minutes.
16 goals, 13,771 minutes played = 0.10 goals per 90 minutes.
16 assists, 13,771 minutes played = 0.10 assists per 90 minutes.
0.10 + 0.10 = 0.20 goals created per 90 minutes.
Narsingh per the numbers is about twice as likely to score as Routledge, and almost two and a half times as likely to assist a goal in an average 90 minute period.
129 appearances 18 goals 22 assists

As we can see Narsingh is 100℅ more effective than Routledge.
Same result I got in a slightly different way. Nice work there.
Interesting stats - when a player leaves us and scores in another European League (Bafe) or doesn't score for us having done so abroad (Borja) those goal are written off as being achieved in Mickey Mouse leagues.
But as a stick to beat Routledge.....
