    I haven’t seen it discussed on here yet, but Begovic’s move to everton has presented a great chance to Mark. Bournemouth have been unable to replace Amir yet, and may back Mark if he does well preseason. Mark has started all the preseason games so far so fingers crossed things will go well! It’s conceivable we could have young goalkeepers starting for championship and league one promotion chasing sides, as well as another young keeper playing all the cup games and being primary back up for league games for one of the top European sides

    Bournemouth are today reportedly in for Bailey Peacock-Farrell, and almost signed Freddie Woodman recently, his even going so far as to have a medical with the club, before injuries at Newcastle meant the move was eventually nixed.

    I'd be (very pleasantly) surprised if Travers was Bournemouth Number 1 this season.

    Travers with a clean sheet today in league cup vs MK Dons. He seems to have done okay and made one very good save.

    Kilkenny was MOTM as a holding midfielder, which Scott Parker said is how he sees him during an interview this week. I wonder if he has the defensive side for a holding midfielder. Perhaps, more like the style of Pirlo… Either way, it’s great to see him do so well preseason and now in league cup. He has a genuine chance at breaking through this year

    Saw the game on TV today - Travers made one good save from a Robinson shot - could possibly have done better with O'Shea's goal, but no chance with Robinson's. Looked vulnerable under crosses but got one good punch away late in the game.

    Do you think that re O'Shea's? It was close range and O'Shea accounted for the fact that it was close range by putting down into the ground. Travers couldn't have got down to that in my view.

    I don't think he was at fault for the O'Shea goal, it was a great header. He still looks vulnerable from crosses though and I'd say he is unlikely to hold on to the jersey at Bournemouth unfortunately. On the face of it he has all the attributes to make it as a top keeper but something seems to be missing - possibly just confidence, but that's hugely important. Well behind Bazunu and Kelleher in the Ireland setup at this point I'd say.

    I wonder would a good year of 40 games at League One or Two or the SPL or even on the continent just help him with that confidence piece? It just feels like it to me.

    Would help him massively I'd say. There's a big difference between him and Bazunu in confidence just watching them play. Bazunu looks completely unfazed by everything. A year getting peppered with shots down at Rochdale had to have been good for him.

    Our keepers need to play now more than anything. It's hard to see Travers keeping his spot at Bournmouth just from watching him play so far.

    I watched Bournemouth vs QPR from 75 mins onwards on SKY last night. Bournemouth were 2-1 up at the time and that's how it finished. Travers was busy throughout the bit I saw. One really super diving save from a header and then 3 or 4 good saves, including one from close range in the 6th or 7th minute of injury time. Only blot on his copybook was a flap at a corner that he missed completely, the ball landing on a QPR's guy's head from only a yard or two out that bounced safely into Travers' arms after a scramble. It could just as easily have bounced straight into the net and it'd have been a direct error, but he deserved his luck.

    He has a fantastic physical presence. He makes the goals look tiny. Once or twice he went to cover a shot going over the bar and his reach was about 2-3 feet higher than the crossbar. In fact after one good save he followed up with an agile tip over but the shot was probably already a fair bit over the bar.

    Overall very good but I'd like to have seen him deal with that corner better. It left a little nagging doubt in my head, especially after Tadic caused so much trouble in Belgrade with his pin-point corner delivery.

    Well, is that on him or is that how Bournemouth play?

    I was going to add I didn't notice anything one way or the other wrt distribution. I'd say Bazunu's international passing stats are strong but augmented by short 5-10 meter passes inside his own box, giving him 20 completed passes per match of no degree of difficulty whatsoever.
