look at those last 20 minutes, we were dead on our feet, against a decent side who benefited hugely from 24 hours extra recovery.
I was urging us on to give it another go towards the end but our side was totally spent. Bournemouth are very much another Brighton, they've got a bit of money and a good side to build on next season, I'd expect them to be a threat next year also.
Eddie Howe is clearly a decent young manager but being a bit of a football hipster cost Bournemouth all three points today, frankly we were pretty average but still scored two goals and could have had another simply because Bournemouth use zonal marking for set pieces.
when he was sacked but despite being an odious man, I do think Billy Davies is a decent manager at this level, however why is it, his sides always tend to burn out towards the end of the season and fall off the pace, does he work them too hard?
If you look at his Championship record, he does appear to suffer from Burley syndrome, very few of his sides ever seem to get over the line, just look at Forest now, they're well off the pace!
They looked a very cynical side, the number of times their was a soft foul and they rolled about on the floor like they'd been shot.
Chris Martin went down at one point, writhing about on the floor, then saw the referee hadn't given it and got straight back up.
Derby are clearly a confident side, they move the ball well and they're dangerous on the break but they look very vulnerable down the wings. Wigan look a far better side imho, they can actually defend!
On a side note, as soon as Cresswell gets back on the corners we score, why on earth was he ever taken off corner duty? Hunt's corners are simply not in the same league!
I just saw the result and couldn't believe it, the Netherlands chased down 190 odd in 13 and a bit overs!
Ireland must be gutted, given they're the best Associate Nation on paper and really should now be playing Test Cricket imho, particularly having already done the hard bit with their victory over Zimbabwe.
