It reports on the daily official activities reported by the club and comments made by individual fans on social media and fanbase websites. Life as an AFCB fan is never dull. As a life-long supporter of the Cherries, it is the friendliness of the staff, fans and my enthusiasm for the club that inspired me to write this blog.

The final post on Cherry Chimes! I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed writing posts on AFC Bournemouth for the past eight years and it was a hard decision to stop. I have been able to consider departing, unlike Eddie Howe, who left quickly last August or Jason Tindall, who was quickly removed in February. My mind was really made up though when Eddie left the club, as the blog started with Eddie, which led to the Eddie Had A Dream book. I am lucky that I had the Disrupted Season (2019-20) book to promote in the last few months and that gave me a good reason to keep up to date with the happenings at AFCB, even though I didn't renew my season ticket this season.<br /><br /></span></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NDRtB_EyLk8/YCd27V3Mr2I/AAAAAAAApGI/WFACIAJK9hcOF4lEUQv-yBmZJJOy1rwhwCLcBGAsYHQ/s497/black%2Bcherry%2Bchimes%2Bbanner%2B2020_edited-5%2Bcopy.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="142" data-original-width="497" height="114" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NDRtB_EyLk8/YCd27V3Mr2I/AAAAAAAApGI/WFACIAJK9hcOF4lEUQv-yBmZJJOy1rwhwCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h114/black%2Bcherry%2Bchimes%2Bbanner%2B2020_edited-5%2Bcopy.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">I'm sure you'll still see me giving out the odd tweet about AFCB</span></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">My two boys have grown up and have either gone to University or started their career job and with them both having girlfriends, the weekends were looking very booked up for them. I still hope to make a visit to one or two away games next season, when COVID-19 has hopefully becomes more manageable.<br /><br />I must give a huge thanks to the advertisers that have been on Cherry Chimes over the years. I couldn't have done as much without that financial support. So, a</span><span style="font-family: helvetica;">&nbsp;massive thanks to all of them who supported me. And of course a huge thanks to you the readers who have managed to read through my pieces and for many of the thank you emails I have received about Cherry Chimes stopping and how you feel you will miss it.&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: helvetica;">I hope you don't miss it too much as my aim in starting the blog was to make AFC Bournemouth better known</span><span style="font-family: helvetica;">&nbsp;and to help the club see more coverage, and get more people wanting to be fans of the club. I think there are a good number of websites and podcasts now that really help to keep fans captivated on every bit of news about the club.</span><div><p></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">When we reached the Championship in 2013, the blog took a big step up and to reach the Premier League was amazing. It has been incredible to be writing on the Cherries during this period and I'll not forget the many enthusiastic comments when the club had great results in the past few years.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Now it is time for a new chapter. There will be a new manager again, after Jason Tindall, and I'll follow it all closely. We may even see AFCB get to a semi-final or final of a domestic cup competition, wouldn't that be something! I might have to come back for a day if the club did get to Wembley. My thoughts at the moment are just hoping that AFCB beat Nottingham Forest today.<br /></span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">I have my fingers-crossed that AFCB can still get promoted this season. It would be a great moment for the club to go back up. I think it would cement AFC Bournemouth as a real force in English football if it could then build a strong platform for the second time in the top tier. I am still hoping that one day there is a new stadium that I can get a season ticket for in my old age, but until then UTCIAD!<br /><br />If you want to recap what Cherry Chimes has been all about, check out the Archive on the blog and pick your way through the posts from 2013.

Also equipped with a fairly new manager, in Chris Houghton, Nottingham Forest have been climbing the table with only one home defeat in their last five home games.</span></p><p style="text-align: center;"></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-LQ9xwWDGbHk/YCYedBI3yQI/AAAAAAAApGA/OnMXaaNcPyoDrPelA-DAxi_bH1Wy0rwtQCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0690%2Bcopy.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="255" data-original-width="340" height="300" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-LQ9xwWDGbHk/YCYedBI3yQI/AAAAAAAApGA/OnMXaaNcPyoDrPelA-DAxi_bH1Wy0rwtQCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h300/DSC_0690%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></a></div>AFCB's players have to keep the pressure up on those above them in the table.<span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span><p></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The Cherries' main problem could well be coming from Glenn Murray. He scored in Forest's last win against Wycombe Wanderers, while Lewis Grabban scored in their previous win against Coventry City. But if that wasn't enough former Cherries for you, then Forest's top goalscorer is Lye Taylor on five goals. Anthony Knockaert is also going to be a goal threat on the wing if he is fit and Sammy Ameobi is another string attacking player that could be used. Harry Arter has been out with a calf injury and there was strong interest for him from Bristol City during the transfer window, but he is still at Forest.<br /></span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><div><div></div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="font-family: &quot;times new roman&quot;; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement<br /></span><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="339" height="267" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" width="320" /></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"></a></div></div><div><div><div><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot;; font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Coastal Garden Buildings</span></a></span></span></div></div></div></div><div><br style="font-family: Times;" /></div></div></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The consistency with which Woodgate has seen Bournemouth play should make this a good battle. We have seen the Cherries grow more of a spine in recent games and they'll need to be up for it to get anything out of this game. Forest are 13 points behind Bournemouth and they are down in 18th place, but a win could take them up to 15th.</span><div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div></div><p></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">I expect Wilshere to be selected in the starting line-up for this game as Bournemouth need to be at their creative best. Solanke could get the jump on the other strikers if he is fit, and Stanislas will surely be one of the first names on the team sheet. My only worry at the back of late has been Asmir Begovic. He has been in great form in the first half of the season, but has looked a bit fragile of late with only Will Dennis pushing for his place. Now we see that Mark Travers has been recalled from Swindon and I think it is a good move, with a bit of pressure now applied to Begovic to perform well.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth's players also have to step up their game because they have a massive quarter-final game in the FA Cup at home to Southampton. The players will want to be in that game and it should push them on to be at their best if they want to be starting that game.</span></p><div style="font-family: helvetica; text-align: center;"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="font-family: helvetica; text-align: center;"><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="font-family: &quot;times new roman&quot;; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>AFCB Away Form</b><br />DLWLL</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Nottingham Forest Home Form</b><br />WDWLD</span></p><p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"></span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OJrSQmD3ydY/XZWNMBojliI/AAAAAAAAm8M/xfg7FBenur44cKP0C8moWARrgTMP8GdEgCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/ebook%2Bcover%2BSmall.jpg" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="177" height="200" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OJrSQmD3ydY/XZWNMBojliI/AAAAAAAAm8M/xfg7FBenur44cKP0C8moWARrgTMP8GdEgCLcBGAsYHQ/s200/ebook%2Bcover%2BSmall.jpg" width="125" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://www.amazon.co.uk/Eddie-Had-Dream-recollection-Bournemouth-ebook/dp/B07Y7NMYC5/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=eddie+had+a+dream&amp;qid=1570081868&amp;s=books&amp;sr=1-1">Eddie Had a Dream eBook version -£7.99!</a><br /></span></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Previous post on Cherry Chimes </b>- <a href="https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com/2021/02/momentum-more-important-than-records.html" target="_blank">Momentum is more important than records for AFCB</a></span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">In other news, it will be the last post on Chery Chimes tomorrow.</span></p><p><br /></p></div>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-73710597089072660412021-02-11T06:14:00.002+00:002021-02-11T19:38:43.724+00:00Momentum is more important than records for AFCB<p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Jonathan Woodgate is right in saying that Bournemouth needed the win against Burnley for momentum.

Jonathan Woodgate had little to be disappointed about, as Bournemouth kept a clean sheet and forged ahead in the first half with a beautifully crafted move with an overlap from Stacey who found Sturridge for the finish. The Cherries had to soak up lots of pressure in the second half but Billing and Pearson were great at snuffing out Burnley's chances and when Stanislas was brought down with just a couple of minutes to go, Stanislas made sure from the spot that Bournemouth would progress t the quarter-finals in the FA Cup.<br /><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth made lots of changes with Stacey replacing Adam Smith, Rico came in for Kelly, Pearson made his debut replacing Lewis Cook, Billing was picked ahead of Wilshere, while Stanislas came in for Danjuma and Surridge took Shane Long's starting spot. Long was cup-tied. There was also a debut on the bench for Christian Saydee.<br /><br />Burnley made eight changes from their last game.</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div></div></span></div><div><div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><br />Advertisement<br /></span><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="339" height="267" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" width="320" /></span></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"></a></span></div></div><div><div><div><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Coastal Garden Buildings</span></a></span></span></div></div></div></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div></div></div></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Match Description</b></span></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Burnley played their usual 4-4-2, while Bournemouth set up in a 4-3-3 formation, that was a 4-5-1 when they didn't have the ball.

Begovic had a very quiet night and Billing's newfound confidence was a pleasure to watch. We are in the hat for the next round which is all you can ask for, quarter-finalists.

I was one of the first to ask, is he up to taking the first-team coach job at AFCB? But I've been impressed by his interviews and the way he is trying to simply get the job done. That job is winning games. He may not want the job and may just be open to whatever happens, but he's got AFCB's interests at heart and if he could manage a win in the FA Cup against Burnley tonight, doesn't he deserve the job? And perhaps, if he doesn't win the game, he still could be best placed to turn things around for AFCB. Perhaps the Middlesbrough job was a test he didn't come through, but he will have learned from the experience and clearly wants to be a winner.</span></p><p></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-iU6vr0UGzug/YCInK2lynXI/AAAAAAAApFg/c6M3WBZbgP83vlEZCncC_sQ1hhUT4cVWgCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0275%2Bcopy.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="192" data-original-width="340" height="226" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-iU6vr0UGzug/YCInK2lynXI/AAAAAAAApFg/c6M3WBZbgP83vlEZCncC_sQ1hhUT4cVWgCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h226/DSC_0275%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The FA Cup returns</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">With managers like Frank Lampard and Scott Parker at Fulham ruling themselves out in media reports, it is quite possible that Bournemouth won't be overly furnished with lots of applicants. They may well have the right man already at the club. Beating Birmingham City who have been at the foot of the Championship table might not be a passport to a new manager's job but beating a Premier League club away from home would be impressive enough. I'd really like to see Woodgate manage another league match before a decision is made, but time is never on the Board's side and they'll want to name a new manager asap.</span><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><div><div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"></span></div></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The players need to know where they stand and the club needs to move forward. If Woodgate keeps saying the right things and winning games, it's hard not to see him given the position if he does want it. Good luck to him if that is what happens. But Burnley are in good form having beaten Liverpool and dominated the game against Brighton. They will see Bournemouth as easy pickings, so it is going to need a Herculean effort to get Bournemouth playing well enough to beat Burnley. The return of Stanislas is a plus point, but Solanke still looks unlikely to make the squad. On the plus side, Woodgate has experience in Shane Long and he'll be better more settled than in his first game and more used to the players around him.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div style="text-align: left;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6p-FhB333P0/WwHSZYP8Y9I/AAAAAAAAjoY/bNswl2JK-6Y0oG6kMVYILJwOewEDXFL9ACLcBGAs/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="340" height="266" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6p-FhB333P0/WwHSZYP8Y9I/AAAAAAAAjoY/bNswl2JK-6Y0oG6kMVYILJwOewEDXFL9ACLcBGAs/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad.gif" width="320" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank">Coastal Garden Buildings</a></div></span></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth have a bit of an up and down record against Burnley. The connection of a rivalry has been there even before Eddie Howe's time at the Lancashire club, and the physical nature of Burnley has never gone down that well, although Burnley have taken players like Ben Vokes who we were happy to have in the side while he was at Bournemouth. It's not about individuals though for Woodgate. He needs a team performance and if he gets a win against Burnley and gets through to another round of the cup, he will already sit higher in the fans' estimates.<br /></span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a><br /></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Every manager has a honeymoon period. That is what I worry about. Will the results fall away as soon as Bournemouth appoint a new head coach? Two games is a short trial and yet if Woodgate seems right to the Board they will surely move quickly. A defeat in the cup would not be the end of the world, but Woodgate would have to choose his words well about the performance and be honest with what he thinks of the players from what he has seen both on and off the training pitch and match day performances. I think Woodgate will be honest and isn't afraid to say if somethings aren't right, like he did over the quiet dressing room. That kind of leadership might be what Tindall didn't raise enough with the players. I am open to be converted to a Woodgate supporter if he keeps getting results and keeps saying and doing sensible things.</span></p><div style="font-size: small; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2 " target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hhqoppCxFSE/X0lRnpvqyUI/AAAAAAAAokE/4MWummNUujsbnwuOiDPAw8KjoQTMmhUcQCPcBGAYYCw/s200/cover%2Bimage%2BDS%2Bcopy.jpeg" /></span></a></div><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2" target="_blank">Ebook version of The Disrupted season £9.99</a></div></span></div></span></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Previous post on Cherry Chimes - <a href="https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com/2021/02/a-win-is-great-win-for-woodgate.html" target="_blank">A win is a great win for Woodgate</a></span></p>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-74539321078336985962021-02-08T06:14:00.005+00:002021-02-08T06:14:54.032+00:00A win is a great win for Woodgate<p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Jonathan Woodgate had sympathy for the players and what they have been through in the last week.

It then needed Jack Wilshere to cap a great performance with his headed goal putting the Cherries in front, before Hogan squared it up with 22 minutes to go.

He has played for England, Real Madrid, Leeds Utd and Spurs as well as Newcastle and Middlesbrough and a few others. Looking at his managerial career though, it's clear that he has only just had his first taste of management and was perhaps lucky to be in the right place to get the Middlesbrough job in June 2019. He had Roy Keane as an assistant manager and perhaps the good cop, bad cop, duo appealed to Middlesbrough with Woodgate a local lad.

So does this make Woodgate a good fit for Bournemouth? I think he'll learn more about playing out from the back, but I don't see him as a good choice to be the first-team head coach or manager. He is not a leader yet and found the Championship hard going in his first managerial job. To add the pressure that Bournemouth have to win promotion is a step too far in my reckoning for Woodgate.</span></p><div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement<br /></span><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="339" height="267" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" width="320" /></span></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"></a></span></div></div><div><div><div><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank">Coastal Garden Buildings</a></span></span></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Woodgate needs to learn the ropes. I hope he does well and wins games while he is the interim manager but he needs time and guidance and a senior figure to learn from. It's funny that Bournemouth legend Tony Pulis was the man to bring Woodgate on as a coach and Woodgate has ended up at Dean Court - it's probably no coincidence. But Bournemouth fans won't want to see the Cherries taking on a Pulis style again. It may be that Woodgate has only a very short stay at the club if Bournemouth do look elsewhere. Looking at Woodgate's record, the board has to ask themselves what has changed since Woodgate was the manager at Middlesbrough and is he full of the same kind of passion, enthusiasm and ideas as a young Eddie Howe was? if the answer is no, might the board still take the risk? They really need to find an experienced manager for this job who is good at getting teams promoted from the Championship. Of course, ironically Middlesbrough has one of those now in Neil Warnock.&nbsp;</span></p><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2 " target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hhqoppCxFSE/X0lRnpvqyUI/AAAAAAAAokE/4MWummNUujsbnwuOiDPAw8KjoQTMmhUcQCPcBGAYYCw/s200/cover%2Bimage%2BDS%2Bcopy.jpeg" /></span></a></div><div style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2" target="_blank">Ebook version of The Disrupted season £9.99</a></div></span></div></span></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">And for those who say bring back Eddie again, let him move on.

I think Vieira might be great manager potential, but it is more a popular media story than anything else. It would be a media frenzy as would Frank Lampard, and either choice would probably of little help to the players. I suppose we should be thinking how far AFCB have come to be linked with such playing greats as possible managers, but such a move would be a short-term gamble on big names that would only see AFCB as a stepping stone. I'd like to see Gary Monk or a similar type of manager come to Bournemouth. Monk taught so much to Edie Howe when he got started. Perhaps Woodgate could work under a manager like that.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Previous post on Cherry Chimes </b>- <a href="https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com/2021/02/bournemouth-had-to-make-change-but-who.html" target="_blank">Bournemouth had to make the change - but who is next?</a></span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /><br /></span><br /></p>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-90250271483064479092021-02-04T06:15:00.001+00:002021-02-04T06:15:42.090+00:00Bournemouth had to make the change - but who is in next?<p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Jason Tindall's record probably doesn't sit too badly against some former AFCB managers who won't have had the chance to have managed in the Championship. But when the Chairman and owner told the fans before the season began that promotion was the goal, then Tndall had to fall on his sword with the promotion places slipping away and four defeats and one draw in the last five league matches.</span></p><p></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-w4XyXtl3WfM/YBuPqJ6m7bI/AAAAAAAApEY/9j60LYjWptICHxVG6wK8srhZ0gxsNuzbgCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0911%2Bcopy.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="255" data-original-width="340" height="300" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-w4XyXtl3WfM/YBuPqJ6m7bI/AAAAAAAApEY/9j60LYjWptICHxVG6wK8srhZ0gxsNuzbgCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h300/DSC_0911%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Taking the manager's job is always a gamble <br />and it just didn't work out for Jason Tindall.</span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br />After 27 games, 11 wins and nine draws it is the seven defeats that have shot up in recent weeks that have seen the end of JT. The logic of sacking Jason now is probably not that great having just had a window and let him pick the players he wanted to come in. Arguably the decline could be seen at the end of December and Bournemouth should have acted then, but Jason's long history with the club probably gave him more time.</span><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="font-size: medium;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2 " target="_blank"><span><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hhqoppCxFSE/X0lRnpvqyUI/AAAAAAAAokE/4MWummNUujsbnwuOiDPAw8KjoQTMmhUcQCPcBGAYYCw/s200/cover%2Bimage%2BDS%2Bcopy.jpeg" /></span></a></div><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2" target="_blank">Ebook version of The Disrupted season £9.99</a><br /><br /></div></span></div></span></div></span></div><div><div></div></div></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Now the club must look forward. It has been a tumultuous last eight months with Eddie Howe and Jason going along with many senior players. The club needs a new standard to get behind and an inspirational manager. I know that Johnathan Woodgate, as interim manager, is in the prime position to take the role, but I don't see that as lighting the excitement flame with the players and fans. It's the steady option that won't cost a fortune, so Woodgate is rightly favourite to move things on.<br /></span><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><div><div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div></div></div><div><div></div></div></div></div></div><div><div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a></span></div><div style="margin: 0px;"><br /></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div></div></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">I'd like an expressive and progressive manager.

I hope board looks carefully at up-and-coming managers perhaps in the Championship or League One. Too often the club looks internally to make appointments and this is a chance to shale things up. I also think Slaven Bilic would ruffle a few people and get the players working hard, but the style of football might be less than desirable for the fans. Gary Monk could be a safe pair of hands who plays more attractive football, but like Tindall he might just be too nice a guy for a team that probably needs a few truthful words said to the players in their 'overly quiet' dressing room. It's a shame Chris Houghton joined Forest in the autumn, I think he is the kind of manager that would have worked well at Bournemouth.<br /><br /></span><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div></span></div></div>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-9968292449582625382021-02-03T06:34:00.002+00:002021-02-03T11:17:44.008+00:0090th minute Sheffield Wednesday winner heaps more misery on the Cherries<p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Match Report</span></b></div><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><div style="text-align: center;"><b>AFCB 1 v 2 Sheffield Wednesday</b></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b>3 February 2021</b></div></span></b><p></p><p style="text-align: center;"></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-woD36SMiOpg/YBpBxOjaKnI/AAAAAAAApEQ/UYlKNn4v5jEd7pV3MjMVqMXXCtiTGpatACLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0261%2Bcopy.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="255" data-original-width="340" height="300" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-woD36SMiOpg/YBpBxOjaKnI/AAAAAAAApEQ/UYlKNn4v5jEd7pV3MjMVqMXXCtiTGpatACLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h300/DSC_0261%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">AFCB have lost their way - a managerial change coming soon?</div><p></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth are still finding it hard to put away opposition in the bottom half of the table. They found Sheffield Wednesday in sharpshooting mood and Begovic had to make a few saves before the mistake by Mepham let them in for their goal. Tindall was clearly not happy with the team and replaced three players at half-time. Wednesday continued to fashion chances but it was the quickness of Surridge that led to the penalty and Stanislas put away his ninth goal of the season from the spot. It looked like the Cherries might go on to win the game from there but a break in the last minute of normal time saw Jordan Rhodes head Sheffield Wednesday in front again. This defeat is going to see some soul searching. It will have drained the players and if they were low before the game, they will need something special to pick them up now. I'm afraid we may be saying goodbye to Jason Tindall very soon.<br /><br /><b><br class="Apple-interchange-newline" />UPDATE:</b>&nbsp;This morning Jason Tindall has indeed been sacked by the board at AFCB.</span></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Advertisement</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small; margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6p-FhB333P0/WwHSZYP8Y9I/AAAAAAAAjoY/bNswl2JK-6Y0oG6kMVYILJwOewEDXFL9ACLcBGAs/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="340" height="266" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6p-FhB333P0/WwHSZYP8Y9I/AAAAAAAAjoY/bNswl2JK-6Y0oG6kMVYILJwOewEDXFL9ACLcBGAs/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad.gif" width="320" /></a></span></div><p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small; text-align: left;"></span></span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank">Coastal Garden Buildings</a></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth gave a first start to Jack Wilshere since his new contract and Lloyd Kelly returned from injury and Junior Stanislas was also given a starting place.

Wednesday have done the double over Tindall and with two different managers. This defeat will hurt more than the first one and while Bournemouth made changes they still made mistakes and got punished. I suppose the team is lucky they haven't got a crowd watching them in the stadium. They just can't put a performance together and you have to ask why not by now? Tindall has to come up with some answers if he is given the chance to. It's just not going to happen if the team continues to drop points like this. Losing a game in the 90th minute make sit all the more harder to swallow. We may be looking for a new manager this week as the pre-season target of promotion is looking more distant than ever.</span></p><p style="text-align: center;"></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-jTt5AG2UK-8/YBm9tZNh2aI/AAAAAAAApEI/SGkbgu9icn0lXLSOKr1tCTWNgPhbM9EtACLcBGAsYHQ/s425/lineup.png" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="425" data-original-width="340" height="400" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-jTt5AG2UK-8/YBm9tZNh2aI/AAAAAAAApEI/SGkbgu9icn0lXLSOKr1tCTWNgPhbM9EtACLcBGAsYHQ/w320-h400/lineup.png" width="320" /></a><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;"><b style="text-align: left;">AFCB Subs:</b><span style="text-align: left;"> Dennis, Smith, Rico, Carter-Vickers, <br />Lerma, Pearson, Billing, Riquelme, Surridge.</span></span></span></div><p></p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Sheffield Wednesday:</b> 1 Westwood, 2 Palmer (Harris 79), 6 Hutchinson, 15 Lees, <br />19 Urhoghide (Dunkley 79), 14 Penney, 10 Bannan, 8 Pelupessy (Luongo 79), 11Reach, 5 Paterson (Rhodes 55), 45 Kachunga, (Josh Windas 67)<br /><br /></span><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Sheffield Wednesday Subs:</b> 7 K Harris, 13 Börner, 16 Green, 17 Dele-Bashiru, 18 Windass, 20 Rhodes, 21 Luongo, 23 Dunkley, 28 Wildsmith</span></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>UPDATE:</b> This morning Jason Tindall has indeed been sacked by the board at AFCB.</span></div>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-56275600569762540492021-02-02T06:17:00.004+00:002021-02-02T06:17:30.701+00:00Sheffield Wednesday are in the bottom three but it's Bournemouth's form that is dire<p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth will need to find away to get back to winning games. It has been a shocking run of results in January that has put Bournemouth on the verge of falling out of the play-off places having been in an automatic promotion place in December. A change of face and voice may be a help on the training pitches as Graeme Jones' position has been taken up by Jonathan Woodgate.<br /></span></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JT2LkZfR3uo/YBjt-U13uPI/AAAAAAAApEA/5ELBxKpNniEK3tApjItsc8iyHjh3q_2xwCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0369%2Bcopy.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="192" data-original-width="340" height="226" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JT2LkZfR3uo/YBjt-U13uPI/AAAAAAAApEA/5ELBxKpNniEK3tApjItsc8iyHjh3q_2xwCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h226/DSC_0369%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></a></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">AFCB desperately need a win - will it come tonight?</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Sheffield Wednesday are just the sort of team likely to be a problem for the Cherries. They have already beaten Tindall's team at Hillsbrough back in November 1-0 and the odds of them doing the double should not be that large. The Owls have won three of their last five games losing just one, but their points have come from home matches.

Even at home they have just picked up one point from their last two games. The goals have also been in short supply with just two goals in their last four league matches. Tindall can't afford to be afraid of making changes now. Bournemouth have been floundering. He has to pick a side that is going to work hard and generate far more chances than of late.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">It is likely that Ben Pearson will get a debut at some point during the game against Sheffield Wednesday, but Jack Wilshere may be thrown straight in at the start. I'd like to see him paired with Lewis Cook but Tindall may prefer a bit more height in the team, so Lerma will likely be kept in the side. I'm expecting Junior Stanislas to start having scored last game. It's perhaps time for David Brooks to rest for a game. Bournemouth need players that are hungry for a win. I still feel Surridge has been underused and yet I expect it will be just Solanke upfront with two wingers in support. Well, that was my feeling until last night when Shane Long was signed from Southampton on loan.</span></p><div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="font-family: &quot;times new roman&quot;; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement<br /></span><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="339" height="267" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" width="320" /></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"></a></div></div><div><div><div><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot;; font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank">Coastal Garden Buildings</a></span></span></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">What Tindall does at the back is also up for grabs now. I have a feeling that things will stay the same though as the back four in the last game. Steve Cook seems undroppable, but with Mepham and Carter-Vickers available, it is still likely to be Mepham that gets the nod to join the captain. I'd like to see Jack Stacey also start again on the right ahead of Adam Smith. On the left side it has to be Rico and Bournemouth need him to find his crossing form that was once so good.<br /></span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="font-family: &quot;times new roman&quot;; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a><br /></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Bournemouth's Home Form</b><br />LWWDL</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Sheffield Wednesday's Away Form</b><br />LLLDL</span></p><p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Possible AFCB lineup<br /><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ODZKNezVgbo/YBjrvVvEehI/AAAAAAAApD4/o2fUNtXMHrMbJfIcmwzzs5sXv3fp3VwcACLcBGAsYHQ/s425/lineup.png" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="425" data-original-width="340" height="400" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ODZKNezVgbo/YBjrvVvEehI/AAAAAAAApD4/o2fUNtXMHrMbJfIcmwzzs5sXv3fp3VwcACLcBGAsYHQ/w320-h400/lineup.png" width="320" /></a><br />AFCB Subs: Dennis, Smith, Carter-Vickers, Pearson, <br />Brooks, Riquelme, Billing, Surridge, Long</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">In other news, Nnamdi Ofoborh has joined Wycome Wanderers on loan for teh rest of the season.

He'll be remembered as one of the greats for Bournemouth in the Premier League, especially with those goals against Chelsea and his sheer joy whenever he did get on the score sheet for AFCB.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" style="font-size: 12.8px;" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">In other news, it's a good time to tell you that Cherry Chimes will sign off from posting on 13 February 2021, eight years since the blog was started.&nbsp;</span></p> <span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif">Chimes Newsletter - out today!</span></b><br /><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><b><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="color: red;">C</span><span style="color: red;"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif">h</span><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif">erry Chimes' January Newsletter</span></span></b><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"> brings you the best stories on the </span>blog<span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"> </span></span><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif">and the thoughts behind them from last month.

His love affair with the Northeast looks over with his time spent mostly on the bench. He may have liked being up north when he was playing a big role in Scotland's team, but has not been selected in recent squads. Whether he still intends to have a punt at making the Euro Championships later this summer may depend on him getting a move and playing regular games, so I can see his interest in Bournemouth.</span></p><p></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xmBVgw_2oyg/YBWjw0RmQBI/AAAAAAAApCQ/U4B3fkFfUZUNkyMTpU3YSYSy0EEHm3PLwCPcBGAsYHg/s588/IMG_6622.jpeg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="392" data-original-width="588" height="266" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xmBVgw_2oyg/YBWjw0RmQBI/AAAAAAAApCQ/U4B3fkFfUZUNkyMTpU3YSYSy0EEHm3PLwCPcBGAsYHg/w400-h266/IMG_6622.jpeg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Matt Ritchie could be back at Dean Court today.</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">I don't think playing for Scotland is his overriding concern. Matt just loves playing football and if he isn't getting games at Newcastle why wouldn't he want to return to a club he knows inside out and who need good characters to help them get back in the promotion race? Dropping down to the Championship would mean a lot of games and Matt has bundles of energy so it looks a good fit.</span><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><div></div></div></div></div></div><p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"></span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a><br /></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth may have expected David Brooks to have moved or to have raised his game further than he has been able to this season. It may not hurt him to have some real competition for his place in the team and with Ritchie's free kick accuracy, it is never bad to have another deadball specialist in the squad. The question I have is, wouldn't Bournemouth benefit from bringing in more players that haven't been to the Premier League and who are hungry to get there like Ben Pearson.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><div><div><div><div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div></span></div></div></div></div></div></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The relationship Ritchie had with the fans was as good as many players while he was at Dean Court, it was just the surprise of his desire to head up north that shocked people at the time. But our fans know that he played a major part in getting the team promoted to the Premier League and he'll always be owed a great debt for that. So, in some ways, I am open to a return if that is what he wants and Bournemouth can benefit. Tindall, like Howe, seems to love surrounding himself with AFCB friends and I'll not be surprised if Ritchie is seen around Dean Court in the next few hours.</span><div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><br class="Apple-interchange-newline" />Advertisement</span></div><div><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2 " target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hhqoppCxFSE/X0lRnpvqyUI/AAAAAAAAokE/4MWummNUujsbnwuOiDPAw8KjoQTMmhUcQCPcBGAYYCw/s200/cover%2Bimage%2BDS%2Bcopy.jpeg" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2" target="_blank">Ebook version of The Disrupted season £9.99</a></div></span></div></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br />I know some will grumble if Ritchie does return. Looking at the team at the moment, it needs quality because the price-tags of the current squad don't bear up to how they are performing. We know you get quality deliveries with Ritchie and it might be something that helps boost Solanke's service in front of goal. So Bournemouth might be just as much in need of an eager Ritchie, as Ritchie's own desire to open another chapter of his Bournemouth career.<br /><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6p-FhB333P0/WwHSZYP8Y9I/AAAAAAAAjoY/bNswl2JK-6Y0oG6kMVYILJwOewEDXFL9ACLcBGAs/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="340" height="266" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6p-FhB333P0/WwHSZYP8Y9I/AAAAAAAAjoY/bNswl2JK-6Y0oG6kMVYILJwOewEDXFL9ACLcBGAs/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad.gif" width="320" /></span></a></div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank">Coastal Garden Buildings</a></div></span></div></div></span><p></p></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Previous post on Cherry Chimes </b>- <a href="https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com/2021/01/bournemouth-continue-their-slide-with-3.html" target="_blank">Bournemouth continue their slide with a 3-1 defeat at Reading</a></span></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div> <span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif">Chimes Newsletter - out tomorrow!</span></b><br /><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><b><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="color: red;">C</span><span style="color: red;"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif">h</span><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif">erry Chimes' January Newsletter</span></span></b><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"> brings you the best stories on the </span>blog<span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"> </span></span><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif">and the thoughts behind them from last month.

While Danjuma looked lively early on, it was Reading that were hitting the target with Laurent and McIntyre firing Reading well ahead before sharpshooter Lucas João&nbsp;made it three before half-time. At this point, it looked like a salvage respectability mission in the second half. While their subs were the immediate response, it took until the last 10 minutes for Bournemouth fas to have something to cheer when Junior Stanislas converted a free kick into the top corner.<br /></span><p></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth made three changes to the starting line up. David Brooks, Jack Wilshere and Lloyd Kelly made way for Dominic Solanke, Jefferson Lerma and Chris Mepham. The other big news was that Junior Stanislas was back on the bench. One onlooking spectator would also be Ben Pearson who signed from Preston North End, but there were also rumours that Matt Ritchie could be heading back to Bournemouth, while Josh King announced he would be staying until the end of the season at Bournemouth.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The Cherries started in a 4-3-3 formation with Danjuma on the left-wing and King on the right side.

The team were out of their depth and just unable to compete. There's no leadership or willingness to make things easier for one another. The pressure is on and Bournemouth haven't been able to respond. They are in free fall and this is a problem that may not be a quick fix. The players have lost their confidence and their motivation under Tindall. It will be quite something if the Cherries can pick themselves up from this. There have been too many off days and it's really starting to show now.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OJrSQmD3ydY/XZWNMBojliI/AAAAAAAAm8M/xfg7FBenur44cKP0C8moWARrgTMP8GdEgCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/ebook%2Bcover%2BSmall.jpg" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="177" height="200" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OJrSQmD3ydY/XZWNMBojliI/AAAAAAAAm8M/xfg7FBenur44cKP0C8moWARrgTMP8GdEgCLcBGAsYHQ/s200/ebook%2Bcover%2BSmall.jpg" width="125" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://www.amazon.co.uk/Eddie-Had-Dream-recollection-Bournemouth-ebook/dp/B07Y7NMYC5/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=eddie+had+a+dream&amp;qid=1570081868&amp;s=books&amp;sr=1-1">Eddie Had a Dream eBook version -£7.99!</a><br /></span></td></tr></tbody></table></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Reading: </b>33 Cabral Barbosa, 29 Holmes (Yiadom 88), 4 Morrison, 5 McIntyre, 3 Richards, 8 Rinomhota, 28 Laurent, 7 Olise (Esteves 88), 10 Swift (Semedo 73), 14 Ejaria (Aluko 77), 18 Lucas João (Meite 88)</span></p><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Reading Subs</b><br />2 Esteves, 11 Meite, 15 Gibson, 17 Yiadom, 22 Southwood, 24 Aluko, 30 Semedo, <br />34 Tetek, 46 Onen</span><p></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">AFCB lineup<br /><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-agrMcxdJyXQ/YBSFCkhi3II/AAAAAAAApB8/apMHISn_HKEwZkfmeX0-OpB44dkqDMGNwCLcBGAsYHQ/s425/lineup.png" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="425" data-original-width="340" height="400" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-agrMcxdJyXQ/YBSFCkhi3II/AAAAAAAApB8/apMHISn_HKEwZkfmeX0-OpB44dkqDMGNwCLcBGAsYHQ/w320-h400/lineup.png" width="320" /></a><br /><b style="font-size: small;">AFCB Subs: </b><span style="font-size: small;">Dennis, Smith, Simpson, Carter-Vickers,<br /></span><span style="font-size: small;">Wilshere, Stanislas, Brooks, Riquelme, Surridge.</span></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Previous post on Cherry Chimes </b>- <a href="https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com/2021/01/the-cherries-dont-want-to-see-20-year.html" target="_blank">The Cherries don't want to see a 20-year unbeaten run against Reading slip</a></span></div><p></p></div>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com4tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-5046917995428783582021-01-29T06:22:00.000+00:002021-01-29T06:22:07.600+00:00The Cherries don't want to see a 20-year unbeaten run against Reading slip<p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">If the first game between Reading and Bournemouth at the start of the season held some tension, then this latest encounter has watched that up about 10-fold. While Reading were the Championship's runaway leaders early on in the season, they were caught and have been trying to re-establish themselves in the play-off places, while Bournemouth have slipped below them again. This game could catapult one of these teams into contention for an automatic promotion place, but the loser may well see a very difficult second half of the season.</span></p><p></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-R-uU0U4uMlo/YBOmwMARexI/AAAAAAAApB0/qgqsZPndf04rcykkoqG7I0EvpKtXaA5MgCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0009%2Bcopy.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="255" data-original-width="340" height="300" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-R-uU0U4uMlo/YBOmwMARexI/AAAAAAAApB0/qgqsZPndf04rcykkoqG7I0EvpKtXaA5MgCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h300/DSC_0009%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">The Cherries know this next game against Reading could&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;">see them put themselves back in contention for a high finish.</div></span><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Reading are in relatively good form having won two of their last three games and having not lost in five if the FA Cup defeat to Luton is excluded. They have two more wins than Bournemouth and have Lucas João still banging in the goals - he's up to 14 now (17 in all competitions). He should have one more but missed a penalty in the Royals' last game against Preston North End. Michael Olise is also a winger who has several Premier League clubs looking on admiringly - including the likes of Man City, Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea. Where Reading have wilted a bit is in their defence having succumbed to 28 goals against in their 25 games.<br /></span><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><br />Advertisement<br /></span><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="339" height="267" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" width="320" /></span></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"></a></span></div></div><div><div><div><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank">Coastal Garden Buildings</a></span></span></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">All indicators are that this will be another high scoring game like the 4-2 result for Bournemouth earlier in the season. Clean sheets look rather unlikely. Reading haven't beaten the Cherries since winning 2-0 in March 2000. To keep that record going Bournemouth need to find something that has been missing for the last five or more league matches and that's plenty of shots on target. Keeping Jack Wilshere into the starting 11 may be one easy pick, but Tindall has to fathom a way for Bournemouth to be better in possession and prevent the number of shots that Begovic is being made to save currently.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"></span></p><div><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Winning the game would put Bournemouth back on track, but defeat now really will see them start to fall away from the top six if they are not careful.&nbsp;</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="font-family: &quot;times new roman&quot;; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a><br /></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Reading Home Form</b><br />WLLWW<br /><b><br />AFCB Away Form</b><br />WLDWL</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Previous post on Cherry Chimes </b>- <a href="https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com/2021/01/has-wilshere-done-enough-to-grab.html" target="_blank">Has Wilshere done enough to grab a starting place for AFCB in the Championship?</a></span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></p><p><br /></p>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-6089887265914363172021-01-28T06:17:00.000+00:002021-01-28T06:17:34.683+00:00Has Wilshere done enough to grab a starting place for AFCB in the Championship?<p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The start that Jack Wilshere made for Bournemouth in the FA Cup against Crawley couldn't have been much better. He wanted to make an impact and he certainly did that. He wanted to score his first goal for the club and he wanted to start paying back the debt he perhaps feels he has to the club for how things ended in the past. He is keeping his end of the bargain but is he ready to take on the best in the Championship?</span></p><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-cqWF_nP9TTI/YBJUnCU4FoI/AAAAAAAApBs/pMyPBOZhjo0pir7P4hlR_h9x2SSh5y7ygCLcBGAsYHQ/s320/IMG_5281.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="214" data-original-width="320" height="268" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-cqWF_nP9TTI/YBJUnCU4FoI/AAAAAAAApBs/pMyPBOZhjo0pir7P4hlR_h9x2SSh5y7ygCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h268/IMG_5281.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Is Jack ready to play his part?</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br />It would be easy to give Jack Wilshere a ticket to start straight away in the next league match. Tindall will have to decide not only whether this is best for Jack, but also whether it will sit okay with the other players in the squad. Everyone says Jack is hard working and has been well accepted by the players at AFCB. But Jack doesn't want to sit around on the bench. He wants to be a force in the team and that will mean needing to accommodate him and in preference to one of the other midfielders.</span><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><div></div></div></div></div></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="font-family: &quot;times new roman&quot;; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a><br /></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">It is most likely that Lewis Cook's position would see the most immediate threat. Jack is similarly creative and yet has shown he can also skip past players and hit the target. His vision and understanding of the game are no doubt at a higher level than many of Bournemouth's players having starred in an Arsenal team and less so in a West Ham team. He is willing to teach what he has learned to other players like Lewis Cook who will be battling with him for the same place, and I expect he will do what he can to win as many people over as he can. But the best way for him to do that si on the pitch. <br /></span></p><div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="font-family: &quot;times new roman&quot;; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement<br /></span><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="339" height="267" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" width="320" /></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fCZuFRhFk2w/WwHaWXsC1cI/AAAAAAAAjpQ/bX9ictFFtj44HDBxZQ0KU1C-1kUT1Ny-gCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad-2.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"></a></div></div><div><div><div><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot;; font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank">Coastal Garden Buildings</a></span></span></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">If, on merit, Jack is the right and best option to start, then he should. It might be hard on the likes of Dan Gosling and Philip Billing as well, but Bournemouth need winners if they are going to climb back up the league and Wilshere is surely a winner. Just looking at the ease at which Jack scored his goal against Crawley underlined that he is a special player that can make the game look like child's play. Teams like Reading in Bournemouth's next match won't give Jack as much time and space as Crawley gave him, but I am sure Jack can step up a few more levels yet in his performances. It may take him a while to know what Josh King and Dominic Solanke's wavelengths are, but AFCB are only going to get the best out of Jack by playing him. So I'm all for getting him in the team, even if it is only for 40-50 minutes at first.</span></p><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">Advertisement</div></span></div><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2 " target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hhqoppCxFSE/X0lRnpvqyUI/AAAAAAAAokE/4MWummNUujsbnwuOiDPAw8KjoQTMmhUcQCPcBGAYYCw/s200/cover%2Bimage%2BDS%2Bcopy.jpeg" style="cursor: move;" /></span></a></div><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2" target="_blank">Ebook version of The Disrupted season £9.99</a></div></span></div></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">In other news, the&nbsp;<i><a href="https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/sport/19040939.tindall-says-simpson-made-mind-up-rangers-move/" target="_blank">Bournemouth Echo</a> </i>reports that Jason Tindall believes Jack Simpson and Nnamadi Ofoborgh have made their minds up to joining Rangers either in this window or in the summer.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Previous post on Cherry Chimes</b> - <a href="https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com/2021/01/wilshere-scores-first-goal-for.html" target="_blank">Wilshere scores first goal for Bournemouth in 2-1 cup win over Crawley</a></span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></p><p><br /></p>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-10810308146556790322021-01-27T06:19:00.001+00:002021-01-27T06:21:34.683+00:00Wilshere scores first goal for Bournemouth in 2-1 cup win over Crawley <p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Match report</span></b></div><div style="font-weight: bold; text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">FA Cup Fourth round</span></b></div><div style="font-weight: bold; text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">AFCB 2 v 1 Crawley Town</span></b></div><div style="font-weight: bold; text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">26 January 2021<br /><br /></span></b></div><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Q9QYmFp96G8/YBECtsUs8_I/AAAAAAAApBc/DWcIReD_8ccPI7fW7tJ7Mo8FsXCp7iRPQCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0351%2Bcopy.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="192" data-original-width="340" height="226" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Q9QYmFp96G8/YBECtsUs8_I/AAAAAAAApBc/DWcIReD_8ccPI7fW7tJ7Mo8FsXCp7iRPQCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h226/DSC_0351%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth get back to winning ways.<b style="font-weight: bold;"><br /></b></span></div><p></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Jack Wilshere scored his first goal for Bournemouth in the first half to put the Cherries in control, against Crawley but a second-half equaliser from Tom Nichols made it an intriguing cup tie. Bournemouth slipped back ahead with a Josh King goal that was just enough to get them a ticket through to the next round away at Burnley.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth took Crawley very seriously after their conquering of Leeds United and named a strong team.

Wilshere comes to mind as he hasn't had hardly any minutes, and he needs to get up to speed if he is going to help Bournemouth get out of the Championship. It might be even more interesting to see who Jack is paired with. It may well be Philip Billing who had a bit of an argument over hist fitness with Tindall last week. Whether that has annoyed Tindall further, or whether he gives Philip the go-ahead we will have to wait and see. Dan Gosling has done nothing wrong and might be the preferred option in any case.</span><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">It may be that Rodriguez Riquelme is given an opportunity, as we haven't seen him start too many games, and last time he started I believe he was subbed at half-time.

The striker role will surely be led by Sam Surridge and maybe Jaidon Anthony will also be given a go. I don't mind Tindall taking risks in the cup, but if a player plays really well then they should be given a chance to play in the Championship.

The West Sussex side are in good form having knocked out a Premier League team 3-0, even if it was mainly Leeds Utd's youth players, and they sit 12 in League Two where they have won their last two league games.</span></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-z1yxK2V1Eo4/YA5e0dSecfI/AAAAAAAApBA/JxEsYAD1OuUW0SvZL_Oi9LNhlK0SZtpTQCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0263%2Bcopy.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="192" data-original-width="340" height="226" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-z1yxK2V1Eo4/YA5e0dSecfI/AAAAAAAApBA/JxEsYAD1OuUW0SvZL_Oi9LNhlK0SZtpTQCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h226/DSC_0263%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">How far can AFCB go in the FA Cup this season?</span></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Suddenly, playing a League Two team that is in form doesn't look like a pushover for AFCB. The Cherries could well be pushed all the way in this fixture. Crawley's main striker has been Max Watters, who was free-scoring, having netted 15 times in 18 games this season and he has been well supported by Tom Nichols who has scored 10 times from 24 games. Luckily for Bournemouth, Cardiff City came in for Max Watters on 16 January and he is no longer a Crawley player. Ashley Nadesan could fill his place or Crawley could turn to&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: helvetica;">&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Sam Ashford. Less likely are forwards&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Ricardo German or Brian Galach. But Crawley have goalscorers in their defenders too - just watch back the goal that defender Nick Tsaroulla scored as the opener against Leeds in the last round of the cup. Defender, Jordan Tunnicliffe also scored against Leeds following a free kick.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="font-size: medium;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2 " target="_blank"><span><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hhqoppCxFSE/X0lRnpvqyUI/AAAAAAAAokE/4MWummNUujsbnwuOiDPAw8KjoQTMmhUcQCPcBGAYYCw/s200/cover%2Bimage%2BDS%2Bcopy.jpeg" /></span></a></div></span></span><div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2" target="_blank">Ebook version of The Disrupted season £9.99</a></div></span></span></span><br /></span><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">How Crawley do in front of goal without their leading League Two striker decide their fate in this game. Crawley have also signed Mark Wright in this window, a defender who is best known for his TV role on The Only Way is Essex. Crawley have also signed James Tilley from Grimsby Town during January, another forward. Winger Jordan Maguire-Drew has also joined Crawley on loan until the end of the season. Several of them may well be cup tied.</span></div></div></div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; text-align: left;"><br /></span></div></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">It may well also help Bournemouth that Crawley haven't played since 10 January when they knocked out Leeds Utd.

Bournemouth haven't had a really strong centre forward for a while. In the Championship back in 2015 it was Yan Kermorgant that did most of the spadework for Callum Wilson to flourish and perhaps Vydra would be a good foil for Dominic Solanke. Vydra is hardly prolific in scoring three times in 14 games for Burnley this season, but a change of scenery for him could be just what he needs and at 28, he still has a few good years left in him.</span><p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><div><div><div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;"><a href="https://amzn.to/2G7ohmy" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="719" data-original-width="1198" height="240" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YWNsdMDt68A/X2U6ug1pKKI/AAAAAAAAooE/EB10f_MU9Hs5RRzPamNuOv450g1dmzt0gCPcBGAYYCw/w400-h240/new%2Bfc%2Btwitter.jpg" width="400" /></span></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">The Disrupted Season (2019-20) completes the story of Eddie Howe's reign at AFC Bournemouth&nbsp;</span></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;">- it's available now for £11.49 as a paperback -&nbsp;<a href="https://amzn.to/2RKCSHb" target="_blank">visit Amazon to order</a></div></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">It doesn't look like Bournemouth are that keen on holding on to Joh King any longer if they can get a good fee for him, but if a player swap and some cash is acceptable, this move could be on in the next few days.

How many players are let go by Neill Blake is what nobody knows, but I think we can expect Jack Simpson and Nnamdi Ofoborh to be two players who are likely to move in this window.

But getting a fair price is perhaps what AFCB need to be most concerned about. The players that are being targeted are very young and that may well concern the club as if they sell a few of their under 25-year-olds it does start to push up the average age of the group again which is something AFCB worked hard to get down in the last couple of seasons.</span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Advertisement<br /><a href="https://www.blogger.com/blog/page/edit/2242217270655542116/3013573887987931633#"><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hhqoppCxFSE/X0lRnpvqyUI/AAAAAAAAokE/4MWummNUujsbnwuOiDPAw8KjoQTMmhUcQCPcBGAYYCw/s200/cover%2Bimage%2BDS%2Bcopy.jpeg" /></a></span></div></div></div></div></div></div><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2" target="_blank">Ebook version of The Disrupted season £9.99</a></div></span></div></span></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Of course, we could see Tindall being given funds to go and get replacements. Somehow though I doubt there is much desire for the club to start spending at the moment with the possibility that it might not get in the automatic promotion places, and it could be gearing up for another year in the Championship. If that happens, AFCB may have to shed many more high-earners this summer. My worry is that by selling the young players now and keeping hold of the more experienced players, it will be the players that have been sold this January that AFCB really need in 2021-2 if they don't get promoted. We can be positive and hope for promotion, but when AFCB want to bring in more young players, we can expect selling clubs to ask high prices knowing AFCB's recent past.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><b><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></b></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><b><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" style="font-size: 12.8px;" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a><br /><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div></b></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Previous post on Cherry Chimes -</b> <a href="https:/https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com//afcbchimes.blogspot.com/">AFCB - simply 'not good enough'</a></span></div></div></div></div>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-34346511480355946162021-01-21T06:15:00.001+00:002021-01-21T06:17:17.247+00:00AFCB - simply "not good enough"<p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Jason Tindall couldn't hide the fact that Bournemouth were well below par in the first half against Derby Couty. The team huffed and puffed but it didn't test the Derby keeper and the team didn't look like winning anywhere near enough of the 50:50 challenges that it needed to win. The creative players are not producing and there is always at least one sloppy bit of defending per match which has more often than not ended in a defeat. So can AFCB get themselves out of the pit they are digging themselves into?<br /></span></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-CNZd4F5JgFU/YAka1sTbI1I/AAAAAAAApAU/AyfqseVDyLkE6Uu1r4ODlOIRGW03AWcZQCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0178%2Bcopy.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="255" data-original-width="340" height="300" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-CNZd4F5JgFU/YAka1sTbI1I/AAAAAAAApAU/AyfqseVDyLkE6Uu1r4ODlOIRGW03AWcZQCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h300/DSC_0178%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></a></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Tindall has to get players back listening to his every word.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Tindall seems pleased that Danjuma is back and played a good amount of minutes as did Chris Mepham and Jack Stacey.

We saw that against Derby who are a side who were second from bottom and AFCB didn't meet the game with the same grit and determination and were duly beaten. I'm sure that there are problems behind the scenes at AFCB. It spilled on to the pitch the other month with Stanislas and Surridge, the transfer saga with Jack Simpson is another sign that things are not running smoothly and why is Philip Billing saying he was fit to play against Derby and Tindall arguing that he couldn't finish the last training session. Is Jason Tindall fully in charge of the players?</span></p><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2 " target="_blank"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hhqoppCxFSE/X0lRnpvqyUI/AAAAAAAAokE/4MWummNUujsbnwuOiDPAw8KjoQTMmhUcQCPcBGAYYCw/s200/cover%2Bimage%2BDS%2Bcopy.jpeg" /></span></a></div><div style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://amzn.to/32Gsnd2" target="_blank">Ebook version of The Disrupted season £9.99</a></div></span></div></span></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">There is not a lot wrong with this team. Most of the difficulties are in getting the players to be on the same page and to get them believing that they are capable of blowing teams away. But that is only achieved with hard work and determination and in some aspects AFCB are falling down. They are not finding things are going their way and rather than look to try something different they have perhaps got stuck in doing the same things over and over again. We saw a lot of long balls against Derby, perhaps because the pitch was heavy. But AFCB's game has always been quick passing and on the floor. It is okay to mix things up, but if you go long you have to aim to win challenges and AFCB didn't do that against Derby.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="font-family: &quot;times new roman&quot;; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><div style="margin: 0px;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="526" data-original-width="688" height="244" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-D6C6vALPFvc/XaVfmnVq27I/AAAAAAAAm_c/gtESMrkVlFEFcbkvgf2dnNQJsHU6bbLMgCPcBGAYYCw/s320/paperbackcov2%2Bcopy.tiff" width="320" /></span></a></div></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><div style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://amzn.to/34bffM0" target="_blank">Eddie Had a Dream -now just 9.99!</a></span></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Okay, you can say some of the players are coming back to fitness. But you can only make these excuses for so long. Other teams are managing this period better, and it's down to AFCB's players to come out the other side of this disappointing period and makeup ground on what they have already lost. The team needs to come together and I have a feeling all is not well in the dressing room. Looking at the table now with the club in sixth, the players might just start to get the picture that they are not performing, and perhaps it is a good thing that the FA Cup comes next and they have a week to try and sort out some of the problems. The FA Cup tie against Crawley has been rescheduled to Tuesday 16 January at 7pm.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6p-FhB333P0/WwHSZYP8Y9I/AAAAAAAAjoY/bNswl2JK-6Y0oG6kMVYILJwOewEDXFL9ACLcBGAs/s1600/Coastal-Gardens-Ad.gif" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="340" height="266" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6p-FhB333P0/WwHSZYP8Y9I/AAAAAAAAjoY/bNswl2JK-6Y0oG6kMVYILJwOewEDXFL9ACLcBGAs/s320/Coastal-Gardens-Ad.gif" width="320" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><div style="font-size: small; text-align: center;"><a href="http://coastalgardenbuildings.co.uk/" target="_blank">Coastal Garden Buildings</a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><b>Previous post on Cherry Chimes </b>- <a href="https://afcbchimes.blogspot.com/2021/01/bournemouth-stutter-to-another-defeat.html" target="_blank">Bournemouth stutter to another defeat at lowly Derby 0-1</a></div></span></div></div>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2242217270655542116.post-54380255867544713892021-01-20T06:29:00.000+00:002021-01-20T06:29:29.608+00:00Bournemouth stutter to another defeat at lowly Derby 0-1<p></p><div style="text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Match Report</span></b></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Derby Co 1 v 0 AFCB</span></b></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">19 Jan 2021</span></b></div><div style="text-align: center;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; font-weight: bold; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kXcEhmsPD2A/YAfNWEiCUiI/AAAAAAAApAM/K7efEygXJKoFfrz4BijADOpVfW9MomICwCLcBGAsYHQ/s340/DSC_0744%2Bcopy.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="255" data-original-width="340" height="300" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kXcEhmsPD2A/YAfNWEiCUiI/AAAAAAAApAM/K7efEygXJKoFfrz4BijADOpVfW9MomICwCLcBGAsYHQ/w400-h300/DSC_0744%2Bcopy.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><span style="font-size: x-small;">AFCB fall flat at Derby County losing ground on the top two promotion places.</span><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-weight: bold;"><br /></span></div><p></p><p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The Cherries slumped to another defeat and a goalless performance at Derby County. It was another game when they could have put some pressure back on the top teams, but they came away wondering where their form has gone. They managed no shots on target in the first half and Danjuma was constantly getting caught offside. Derby Scored when they were on top and from a corner, when Lloyd Kelly missed his header, and Bielik was there to hook the ball through his legs and into the goal. The second half saw Bournemouth throwing more bodies forward and Lloyd Kelly came closest to scoring with a strong header that Roos saved. Jack Stacey might also have levelled, but saw his shot go narrowly wide. It's not the result that Jason Tindall will have wanted, but Bournemouth have to show more desire than this if they want to get in the promotion picture. Derby worked harder, wanted it more and justifiably got the win.</span></p><div style="text-align: center;"><div><span face="&quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif" style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;">Advertisement</span></div><div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OJrSQmD3ydY/XZWNMBojliI/AAAAAAAAm8M/xfg7FBenur44cKP0C8moWARrgTMP8GdEgCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/ebook%2Bcover%2BSmall.jpg" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><img border="0" data-original-height="283" data-original-width="177" height="200" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OJrSQmD3ydY/XZWNMBojliI/AAAAAAAAm8M/xfg7FBenur44cKP0C8moWARrgTMP8GdEgCLcBGAsYHQ/s200/ebook%2Bcover%2BSmall.jpg" width="125" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="font-size: 12.8px;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"><a href="https://www.amazon.co.uk/Eddie-Had-Dream-recollection-Bournemouth-ebook/dp/B07Y7NMYC5/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=eddie+had+a+dream&amp;qid=1570081868&amp;s=books&amp;sr=1-1">Eddie Had a Dream eBook version -£7.99!</a><br /></span></td></tr></tbody></table></div><div><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><div style="font-size: medium; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: x-small;"></span></div></span></div><div></div></div></div><p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth just made the two changes with Lloyd Kelly replacing Diego Rico and Danjuma back in for Josh King. Billing and Riquelme were injured, while Jack Simpson is still waiting on a move to Cardiff City. Jack Wilshere did make the bench along with Chris Mepham.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Match Description<br /></b>Danjuma has the first shot off a long raking pass from Carter-Vickers, which is blocked. If he had taken it first time, he might have scored. Jozwiak then puts a header on target but Begovic saves. Clarke is next to head wide. Derby are in control.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Solanke misses a good chance off a Jack Stacey cross. He got in the box but a weak contact and the chance is gone.&nbsp;</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Lerma is in the wars again clashing with Bielik after 11 minutes but totally accidental. Shinnie was giving Lewis Cook a lot of attention but Cook wins the free kick.

Derby are getting closer and Steve Cook has to block Jozwiak.

Derby go 1-0 up on 32 minutes.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bournemouth haven't got going. Knight drills a shot wide following a free kick.

Knight has another wild swing at a shot that goes well wide.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Lewis Cook loses possession in his own half but gets away with it.

Surrdige is on for Danjuma on 63 minutes. Mepham plays the ball against Byrne and almost let Derby in.

The ball just held up and Solanke and Surridge couldn't sort their feet out in time.</span></p><p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Bielik has shot and Mepham has to block it.

They came up a Derby side that are battling to stay alive and Bournemouth didn't show the same will and determination. They got what they deserved with this second defeat in a row. They have to apply themselves more fully and while you could see it mattered to players like Steve Cook and Lewis Cook, who were throwing themselves at everything there were too many having a ride on the bus. The shots on target were absent first half and while Lloyd Kelly and Jack Stacey nearly got a point for the Cherries, they didn't deserve to get a point. Hopefully, it will make the team more hungry for points next game.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></div><p></p><p style="text-align: center;"></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">AFCB lineup</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ql88c_O_mGE/YAc74XhZpkI/AAAAAAAApAE/qkLy7CpZd5QfwQwgt2uqe424y9VeaAB-gCLcBGAsYHQ/s425/lineup.png" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><img border="0" data-original-height="425" data-original-width="340" height="400" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ql88c_O_mGE/YAc74XhZpkI/AAAAAAAApAE/qkLy7CpZd5QfwQwgt2uqe424y9VeaAB-gCLcBGAsYHQ/w320-h400/lineup.png" width="320" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b style="font-size: small; text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;"><b>AFCB Subs:&nbsp;</b><span style="font-size: small;">40 Dennis, 4 Gosling, 6 Mepham, 11 Wilshere,&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></div></b><span style="font-size: small; text-align: left;"><div style="text-align: center;">21 Rico, 24 Ofoborh, 27 King, 32 Anthony, 14 Surridge</div></span></span><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-weight: 700;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><br /></span></span></div><p></p><p></p><div style="text-align: left;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">AFCB Ratings</span></b></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Begovic 8, Stacey 6, S Cook 9, Carter-Vickers 5, Kelly 6, A Smith 4, Brooks 4, Lerma 5, L Cook 7, Danjuma 5, Solanke 5</span></div><p></p><p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;"><b>Cherry Chimes MoM:</b> Steve Cook</span></p><p></p><div style="text-align: left;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Derby Co</span></b></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">21 Roos, 22 Evans, 2 Wisdom, 16 Clarke, 12 Byrne, 4 Shinnie, 5 Bielik, 26 Buchanan,</span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">7 Jozwiak (MacDonald 81), 13 Kazim-Richards, 38 Knight (Mitchell-Lawson 90+2)</span></div><p></p><p></p><div style="text-align: left;"><b><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Derby Subs</span></b></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: helvetica;">3 Forsyth, 8 Bird, 9 Waghorn, 17 Sibley, 18 Whittaker, 37 MacDonald, 41 Gordon, 42 Mitchell-Lawson, 44 Foster</span></div><p></p>Cherry Chimeshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08392138906647278953noreply@blogger.com1
