Swansea are awful.

Pass pass pass with absolutely no desire to try anything difficult or go by a man. They'll never create anything and will always take the easy ball by moving it sideways or backwards.

Palace are even worse than Swansea though.

De Boer will be sacked before the end of October.

That Syrian striker looked a handful, almost sent them through their with that free kick at the end as well.

As the keeper touched it before Pogba, is it still offside?
Yes.

When the ball his first played he is offside. Just like if a shot is taken and parried out, the attacker getting the rebound would have to be onside when the shot was first taken.

Bournemouth are being a bit naive here. 10 minutes left they need to tighten things up and see this out. No sense in continuing to go forward and leaving gaps for a team like Arsenal to exploit.

Eddie Howe is massively underrated.

Got a reputation for throwing away leads and conceding goals but he's kept Bournemouth up fairly easily for a few seasons now.

Considering they're the least attractive club and smallest club in the league, that's a pretty big thing to do.
I agree but they do throw away leads too often.

Think they are well organised though but sometimes he needs to have the team drop deeper and not leave so much space in behind.

Doing well today though and think if he learns he'll go on to a bigger club in the next year or so.

I do like the attitude Eddie Howe has got there, they do keep going. And they do attack. However, he does suffer a lot of the same issues as Martinez. If you were going in that direction, you might as well hold your nose and go for someone like Brendan Rodgers.
Argument would be that Howe is still learning and is more likely to grow with the club.

Not sure Rodgers would be anything but what he has been for the last couple years.

Still think Rodgers is a decent manager but just a massive bell. Howe seems a decent person so there's that as well.

If Palace go down we should move for Zaha.

Might compete with other big teams but he would start every week here and be a huge asset.

Should have gone for him instead of Bolasie two years ago.
