We asked for your views on Saturday's game between Bournemouth and Newcastle.

Here are some of your comments:

Bournemouth fans

Charl: We played well today particularly in midfield. Having two forwards and a solid defence meant the midfield could push forward and create chances, which we must start taking. Lewis Cook’s return along with Antoine Semenyo gave us a solid platform to build attacking opportunities.

Ben: It looks like Andoni Iraola's system is really bedding in. It was a fantastic performance and it feels like we're in a great place entering the international break. Big shout outs to Ryan Christie, Semenyo and, of course, Dominic Solanke. If we can keep going in this direction, and put our shooting boots on, we'll be climbing before we know it.

Neil: A well-deserved win for the Cherries! Patient on the ball, then quick to close down and put the opposition under pressure off the ball. Seems this is the style of play that Iraola is looking for and the fans will enjoy it. More of these performances will generate the results required.

Newcastle fans

Richard: “A hard game to watch”. Well, we we were just so tired-looking. Eddie knows he can’t blame the injuries because it impacts on the players who took part. I think we can all see the extent to which the squad is stretched. But they all tried! It just wasn’t working. It happens. The international break is good news; the January transfer window is better.

John: A very disappointing result. Just before Bournemouth scored, I thought I’d settle for a point under the circumstances. We are in with the big boys and we’re now finding what it’s all about but we can’t let our heads drop. We have to pick them up and get back to where we want and expect to be.

Simon: It was only Newcastle's eighth game in nearly a month and a half. The only team of note they have played in the Premier League is Arsenal. Howe cannot make the excuse of too many games. When push comes to shove, they are still not good enough as a squad. Found wanting in Europe.
