124 - Are We "Derren Brown-ing" Them?
AFC Bournemouth limped over the finish line against Stoke City in a display which has single-handedly managed to erode any optimism ahead of a Play-Off Semi-Final against an in-form Brentford. On this show, Sam Davis, Jeff Hayward, Mr Tigz and Neil Dawson dissect the game with vigour and determination - well, *someone* had to put in a shift this weekend.
Last week after Wycombe, Woodgate was almost flippant in his post-match interview. This week, he says: "we'll give it our best shot" - a far cry from the buoyant figure that stood before us during our seven game unbeaten spell. Are the Derren Brown-esque mind games starting already?
In this pod we analyse the Stoke game, find out what went wrong and what needs switching, plus we question the heart and desire that seems to dissipate throughout the side when certain key players are not at the races.
And what of Brentford? What will they be thinking after being confident of facing Barnsley or Swansea in the semis?
Bournemouth are underdogs, but will that work in our favour, and do they think that? And how heavy will their notorious "bottling" be playing on their minds?
