    Fair enough. I think he causes himself a major problem by rolling his studs over it the way he does, far riskier that controlling it in a normal way and it led to the panic of the rushed kick, when he could really have passed it to the centre back alongside him, who was still in a reasonable amount of space to receive the ball and work it out. I agree the ball back to him in the first place was far from ideal though.

    I've just looked at the highlights of the first goal, and taken a screenshot immediately after he touched the ball first.
    I didn't see the game, and haven't looked at the line ups, by judging where Ake is, they're either playing 3 at the back, or I assume he's left back.

    Honestly, if I'm the coach there, I'm ****ed with my cb's for two reasons.
    - firstly, the pass to Travers is slow: and goalkeepers are rightly wary of the ball in the central goal area, the most unpredictable surface on a pitch;
    - secondly, the CB about to receive the ball (Cook?) is too central. It's bad positioning for two reasons:
    a - he's too close to Travers to receive a pass that he can do something with, and also is reachable by Deeney
    b - he's condensed the pitch for the Watford press. The ball is only going to go one place. It's reduced the variables. In his current position if a mistake is made, he's not going to prevent a goal, therefore he's commited to being of assistance as an out-ball for the keeper. If you've done that, then do it properly, give yourself the extra 5 yds. that way Ake can really hug the line, and it means there is more space for the Bmouth player in the middle of the press to be a viable receiving option.

    That Watford press is exactly what you expect your offensive players to do as a coach. Bournemouth simply made their job easier.

    The full red lines are where I think the Bmouth players should be; the staggered red is where I would expect the Watford players to be if that happened, and the blue lines are the options that are then available.

    And yes, the first touch by Travers isn't great, but it wasn't horrific.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Certainly Travers is more to blame than anyone else. He has several other options there varying in level of risk and the “rolling” of the ball as opposed to taking a more assured first touch certainly seems to leave him if not exactly off balance then appearing awkward in making the pass.

    He can go long there, use the centre midfielder who has dropped back, forward it straight away on to his nearest team mate taking out the risk of a touch.

    It is tricky yes but he has options and he has simply messed it up.

    The fact that Bournemouth play out from the back doesn’t cut it as an excuse either, he is a goalkeeper and as such will have to do many things that may be out of sync with the tactical approach to the game. He has to have the confidence, decisiveness and independent streak to deal with that as he sees fit. (See Alisson for Liverpool at Spurs for example, just clearing it when required)

    He has said he will learn from it and I am sure he will.

    In fairness to Cook, I think he believes play has moved over to the right hand side, he's probably not expecting the ball to be returned to Travers, but to be moved on to the player on the very far side hogging the touchline, as it probably should have been. Even from your still shot there I think Travers can slip it quickly to Cook who can move it on to Ake. He could have done it more efficiently still if he controlled the ball properly. I'm with DCWA overall, regardless of the case to be made to incriminate some other players, it's a very poor moment for Travers and hopefully he will learn from it. I've liked the look of him otherwise.

    Gets another game under his belt, as Bournemouth bow out of the FA Cup against Arsenal, with Kilkenny on the bench. Unfortunately we probably won't see him again this season unless Bournemouth are assured of safety or relegated with a couple of games left: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/51208535

    I watched it. Couldn’t do anything about goals, not much else to do other than one good save in first half. I strongly feel he needs a loan move. I understand it’s not as vital for keepers but they still need to get as much experience as possible at a young age as there is only so much work u can do on the training ground; there’s plenty of aspects to keeping that u can’t learn on the training ground or playing Mickey Mouse underage games. Travers looks very good, but only has non league experience. A 4 month loan to league 1 or 2 would be fantastic, doubt if champ team will come in

    Ramsdale has got Corona virus, but I think he'll recover before the PL restarts, so I don't think Travers will necessarily get more game time.

    Won't Ramsdale have to sit out two weeks of training now though? That might help Travers' cause.

    Will partially depend on how bad his symptoms are. A friend of mine (mid 30s, physically fit) got it. Was sick for six weeks (never at risk of hospitalization). Took him another six weeks or so to be able to do anything more than a 10 min jog (he seems to be almost back to normal now).

    Yes, he will have to train at home for two weeks so will surely help Travers.

    Bournemouth have accepted an Ł18.5mil bid from Sheffield United for Aaron Ramsdale.

    This can only be good for Travers and there's a high chance he begins the season as their no.1.

    Fingers crossed they don't dip into the market. The fact that they have hired their new manager from within is a huge benefit for Travers. A new outside manager might come in and see that return and think of spending 5m plus on a replacement and have some spare change for the squad. Hopefully they trust him.

    Since they have lost their number 1 and 2 they will almost certainly need to sign a new keeper.

    At fault for Blackburn's goal by some accounts. A shot from 35 yards-plus.

    Obviously unsighted!

    Seriously, though, he's still part of a winning side, so it hopefully won't dent the lad's confidence too much.
