We scored twice in both league matches v AFC Bournemouth last season, but won neither (2-2 at home and 3-2 away). AFC Bournemouth took the lead three times in their last meeting with Swansea in March, with Steve Cook’s goal 12 minutes from time sealing victory. The last six league encounters between these two sides has produced a total of 27 goals (4.5 per match on average). Joshua King scored in both Premier League matches against the Swans in 2015/16.

Another loss I'm afraid. Was hoping to see someone else in charge by then to give us a boost but they have already said it will be Curt and Williams. With all due respect to both I can't see them getting us anywhere near defensively organised enough to compete.

Pick some, presumably

Lots of width and Llorente up top. Make best of what we have with the back 4. I'd consider resting Fab, too.

Be interesting to see his take on it in relation to the last 10 games or so. Also what the players attitude will be (as we see it from our seats).

Also will it be Curt plus Paul in that little box?

Hopefully give us a lift for Saturday. He's got to start Llorente, surely? As for Paul Williams... He's got to be bricking it now. He could be out of a job by Saturday evening. Defensive coach, be fked!

Why rest Fab he only plays once a week, unless your worried about him hurting his back having to constantly bend over to pick the ball out of the back of the net.

I'm just hoping for a positive reaction from the players - more energy, more spirit, more effort, better concentration. Squad may still be lacklustre for a few weeks but it will help if all the players perform somewhere near their potential, something they have spectacularly failed to do lately. It will give us a platform to build on.

Christ no. We really have to win this. Some way, any way. They can all carry on performing like townhill juniors up paradise park as long as they find a way to win this bloody game.

I fancy us for this as long as we come out of the blocks well. The crowd will be up given the Bradley sacking & Curt in charge.

The defence is still a major concern obviously but if we can go with 2 genuine wingers and Gylfi behind Llorente, then we've got the chance to get at them.

Is Montero still injured? Dyer and Barrow are probably our best two available, but I'm not sure either of them would be OK on the left.

Win against Bournemouth and we may only be 1 point my off a survival place. That's the only thing important here, seasons gone by are irrelevant. it's gonna be a low scoring 17th place this year by the looks of it which is also the only hope we've got it seems.

Win on Saturday and we're amazingly still well in the hunt with half a season to go and a chance with a new manager and players to rectify things.

It's the hope that kills you.

To be fair that is said this time of year quite a lot. To be sure we have to be looking at 38/40 points.

Bobbly said it. It's buried deep in one of his ramblings. He said that Williams had been bought in as defensive coach and would spend time (a day or two a week I think) working just with them on defensive drills. I don't think that's unusual, although it's always struck me as odd as defending is a whole team issue.

although i have no faith in him, montero was at least an option off the bench and now i see he's out for 6 weeks.

winger was already a priority over the january window and now you would have to think it's an absolute necessity.

so, does this mean Dan James gets a spot on the bench? i'd like to see this happen in the meantime as they go after a new winger.

Montero is far too mentally weak to be relied on. At least one winger is a must
