Good draw for us. Thought Salisu was very good for a debut.

Good performance from Armstrong , he might have had a hat-trick on another day.
Excellent assist from Nathan Tella who was only on pitch 3 for minutes.
Salisu a bit shaky at start, but grew into the game and won few crucial tackles...will improve.
Yet another clean sheet for Fraser Forster...
Danny Ings - goal poacher - what more can you say,
.....and the rest ......all DAJFU when it mattered.

How can anyone give more than a 1 to Redmond?? He has been totally useless in last 2 games. Can't pass, can't tackle, can't beat an opponent, can't shoot.
I was trying to work out why he doesn't get substituted. I believe Ralph keeps him on to distract the opposition. While they are laughing someone else can score.
Armstrong excellent as usual; Salisu nervy but did his job as did rest of defence; Tella quick of foot and mind; Forster to start Sunday.

Can't disagree with any of the comments above. I thought Armstrong was the best player on the park irrespective of his miss. Glad the Beeb thought likewise. The much maligned Bednarek was excellent, too and Fraser Forster looked solid when he had anything to do. I'd like to see Tella start instead of Redmond on Sunday.

WHAT A DRAW!!! Exactly what I’d hoped for in the team news post! Still great result and an even better draw! What a way to get to the Semi-finals at Wembley of the FA Cup!

It's been pointed out to me that there's a precedent for a team losing 9-0 in a season and then reaching the Cup final. Crystal Palace in 1989-90. They also avenged the 9-0 (against Liverpool) in the semi-final - which is a possibility for Saints too. Omen?

I presume Shane can't play against us?

That aside, the Bournemouth team will be easy to motivate.

If we play like tonight, I think we can do it but it's not going to be the easy stroll that some seem to think.

Fifty years ago yesterday, Colchester United of the 4th Division pulled off the greatest cup giant-killing ever, beating 1st Division Leeds United 3-2 at Layer Road. Watched by 16,000, and the Match of the Day cameras, Dick Graham’s U’s, a rag-tag band of mostly aging journeymen, defied the odds to defeat arguably the greatest club side in Europe at the time. “The greatest cup giant-killing ever” is a bold claim, and over the years various football magazines and websites have run their own polls of which was the greatest. Whilst that day at Layer Rd always features, as the years have gone by other feats fresher in the memory have been put forward as a candidate – we probably all remember Ronnie Radford’s screamer against Newcastle, Sutton’s exploits, or even Bradford City quite recently at Stamford Bridge – but these pale into insignificance when you pause to reflect on the Don Revie side that we beat that day. Sprake, Cooper, Charlton, Hunter, Lorimer, Giles etc – all full internationals, all household names – the only one missing was Billy Bremner, and that was because he was injured. By comparison, all we had to offer was Ray Crawford – at his peak arguably on a par with some in the Leeds side, but that peak had been ten years earlier playing for Ipswich and England. Eleven heroes didn’t just try and hold out against Leeds United, they took the game to their illustrious opponents with such tenacity, grit and no small amount of flair, and before we knew it, the U’s were 3-0 in the lead. As legs tired, Leeds got back into the game with goals from Hunter and Giles, but we held firm – typified at the death by Graham Smith pulling off an impossible save to ensure the U’s achieved the greatest cup giant-killing ever!

And so the dust settles on another transfer window closing, and despite (my) expectations that the possibility of incoming business was going to be remote, we have instead seen a veritable flurry of activity, with no less than three coming in. Big Frank Nouble, making a very welcome return on loan from Plymouth Argyle, of course needs no introduction. Neither really does feisty Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu, here on loan last season, and this time signed full-time from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee. Actually paying hard cash for someone did come as a surprise, presumably offset by the sale of Cohen Bramall to Lincoln for a similarly undisclosed fee. However, the fact that the Addicks have insisted on not only a sell-on clause, but a rarely used buy-back clause too, suggests (a) Wiredu’s signing fee probably wasn’t too high, and (b) Charlton are protecting those finances with these clauses. The last one, which would have been a complete surprise for me were it not for a contact leaking me the news earlier yesterday, is left-back Josh Doherty on loan from Crawley. Josh was only announced once outgoing left-back Bramall was confirmed, and presumably his loan is directly related to part-time fashion model, TV and radio celeb and former left-back Mark Wright signing for Crawley on a non-contract game-by-game basis in December. We have also released seven from the academy, Ollie Kensdale, Miquel Scarlett, Sammie McLeod, Michael Fernandes, Ollie Sims, Danny Collinge and Matt Weaire, and I’m sure we all wish them the best for the future.
