From Stuart James in the Grauniad:

"How do you deal with Manchester City? Take them on? Or get 11 players behind the ball and hang on for grim life. It was certainly a curious game at Bournemouth on Saturday – if you can call it a game. Eddie Howe’s side lost narrowly, 1-0, but it is hard to think of a more misleading scoreline.

Bournemouth became the first club since Opta has been gathering data to fail to register a shot on or off target in a Premier League match. The home team never even won a corner. Kyle Walker, Manchester City’s right‑back, completed more passes than the entire Bournemouth team, who had 18% of possession. Howe admitted afterwards that he feared the consequences if Bournemouth opened up against City and he probably had a point. The alternative, however, is a slow death by 810 passes and that is a fairly joyless experience too."

To be fair they are very easy on the eye in all the other 37 games - to their detriment sometimes

Am I alone, probably, in getting tired of 200 passes to cross the half way line.

I would like, just for the Devil, to see how a well drilled long ball team, a la Wimbledon at their height would get on against Man City, by passing midfield and keeping the City team turning back on defence.

Mind you, they'd have to win the ball first!
