Solanke proving to be a good player, a young player needs time to learn the mens game, who'd have thought it???
The only way to see if he's improved is to judge him in the PL, assuming Bournemouth get promoted.

Re: Incident in United/Arsenal game

So if a player is clean through on goal, the keeper drops to the floor injured, should the referee then stop the game before the attacker can put the ball in the empty net?

In our first season in the Prem under Dyche I seem to recall we drew plenty and the general consensus was that we were playing well.

Tbh, there are not many strikers outside of the big clubs who are any better than Wood. That's why he constantly gets into double figures.
