AFCB fans: we need you now more than ever!

The message from Eddie Howe could not be clearer. However disappointing the defeats against Brentford and Nottingham Forest have been, it is not the time to desert this team that has had a terrific season up until this points. The next two home matches against Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton Wanderers can repair much of the recent damage if the fans support the team and give the players the encouragement they deserve.

Eddie Howe asks for your support.
It was a defeat last night that was hard to take because the team had been so dominant. We know that it is the two boxes at the end of the field though where you must do your best work, and that is where AFCB have been falling down recently. That is little conciliation, but it is just something that the Cherries need to improve on.

"I just hope we can take heart and confidence from our display as results don't tell you what the game was like," said Eddie Howe. "We became desperate to score and that in turn led to bad decisions."

The thing is that the Cherries did get the all important game and that should have made it easier to control the match. More composure is something that Eddie Howe has asked for even when the team needs to find a goal. It was the last message that was really a call to arms for all Cherry supporters that things are not over yet.

"My message to every Bournemouth fan is we need you now probably more than we have at any stage of the season and we can either fade away or come back stronger," said Eddie Howe. "We want to come back stronger and we are going to need the supporters to play their part in that."
AFCB need a packed house for the Blackburn game
 to get their promotion challenge back on track.
The team tried really hard to put recent disappointments behind them at Forest and while it did not work out as planned the team just needs a result, no matter how scrappy just to feel good about things again. There will be a fair amount of criticism about the lack of points of late but come the next two home games AFCB fans have to make Dean Court a noisy stadium and show some defiance like the team will be wanting to do on the pitch to those outsiders who have written the Cherries off. There are still lots of games to go and everything can turn quickly with just a few results. Getting that first result is what AFCB need now. UTCIAD!

How many points do you think AFCB will get from their next two home games - vote on the side panel poll before Saturday.
