AFC Bournemouth: Howe's men slump to Wigan defeat (WITH VIDEO)

Bournemouth Echo: BOSS: Eddie Howe BOSS: Eddie Howe

CHERRIES slumped to their first defeat in four as an impressive Wigan side ran out 3-0 winners at the DW Stadium this afternoon.

Uwe Rosler’s side dominated the first half and Cherries were fortunate to go into the break only 1-0 behind, Marc-Antoine Fortune’s strike after five minutes handing the hosts a deserved lead.

But despite settling into the clash after a torrid opening 25 minutes, Elliott Ward’s own goal just before the hour and substitute Jordi Gomez’s long-range effort in stoppage time at the end of the clash saw Eddie Howe’s men return to Dorset empty-handed.

Howe made one change from the side that drew 1-1 against Brighton on New Year’s Day, with Marc Pugh dropping to the bench and Ryan Fraser starting on the left of midfield. Steve Cook returned to the bench following a spell on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Nick Powell fashioned the first chance of the game for the home side after four minutes when he shook off Simon Francis and bent a right-foot shot towards goal, but Cherries keeper Lee Camp saved.

And a minute later the Latics were in front when Fortune turned and blasted an unstoppable drive past Camp following good work down the left between Powell and Chris McCann.

As Rosler’s men began to dominate, James McArthur skewed a right-foot shot from distance horribly wide, before Camp made himself big to superbly deny Callum McManaman.

Powell arguably should have made it 2-0 after 13 minutes but somehow managed to turn Fortune’s cross from the left over the crossbar when well-placed inside the six-yard box.

Camp then saved well as the impressive Powell unleashed a dipping drive from around 25 yards. Cherries were barely able to venture into Latics territory such was the home side’s dominance.

Matt Ritchie cut inside from the left on 25 minutes having been played in by Harry Arter, but his shot from the edge of the box was well saved by Ali Al Habsi. At the other end, Camp pouched a long-range effort from McArthur.

Lewis Grabban beat the offside trap to pick up Charlie Daniels’s long ball 10 minutes before half-time, but the Cherries striker let the ball run too far in front of him and Al Habsi collected.

Camp saved well from Ben Watson’s 25-yard free kick on 36 minutes after Ritchie had felled Powell, while McAthur fired straight at the Cherries keeper having run from deep inside his own half.

In first-half stoppage time, Grabban turned Francis’s cross wide of the target.

The home side’s appeals for a penalty after Eunan O’Kane had appeared to handle in the box were waved away by referee Geoff Eltringham shortly after the restart, before McArthur blazed wide from 20 yards. Half-time sub Ty Browning headed wide from Watson’s corner.

Grabban’s shot flashed across goal at the other end after good work from Arter and Ritchie, but, like the opening period, Cherries were still struggling to put together a meaningful spell of possession.

And the hosts made them pay when Fortune’s shot from inside the box after 57 minutes was turned past Camp by Ward.

McCann should have put the game well out of reach on 10 minutes later but his weak shot from inside the six-yard box following a pin-point cross from Jean Beausejour was snaffled by Camp.

Ritchie, having a quiet game by his standards, saw his shot 18 minutes from time deflected out for a corner, while Camp was equal to McArthur’s drive two minutes later.

Substitute Tokelo Rantie should have given Howe’s men a glimmer of hope on 76 minutes but, despite having space just inside the box, the South African fired wide after Daniels and substitute Pugh had linked well down the left. Pugh then shot straight at Al Habsi moments later.

Al Habsi was then on hand to deny Rantie eight minutes from time, smothering the Cherries man as he looked to pull the trigger having been played in by Pugh. Ward scooped a shot over the bar moments later after Brett Pitman’s neat header had set up the centre-half.

But the hosts saved the best until last, Gomez curling home a stunning left-foot shot from around 25 yards in second-half stoppage time, although there was still time for Al Habsi to save well from both Grabban and Rantie.

Latics: (4-3-3) Al Habsi; Perch (Browning, h-t), Boyce, Barnett, Beausejour; McCann, Watson (Espinoza, 78), McArthur; McManaman (Gomez, 63), Powell, Fortune.

Unused subs: Crainey, Holt, McClean, Nicholls (g/k).

Booked: McCann.

Cherries: (4-1-4-1) Camp; Francis, Elphick, Ward, Daniels; O’Kane; Ritchie (Pitman, 73), Arter (Rantie, 64), Surman, Fraser (Pugh, 58); Grabban.

Unused subs: Cook, Harte, Hughes, Allsop (g/k).

A goal down within five minutes away, against an ex-premiership side - difficult to come back from that. Fortunately the sides close to us had bad days too.

This season was always going to be about establishing ourselves in the Championship, and we're doing OK. Up the Cherries!

I do not consider myself a troll but there are times when things need to be said, and to all you can do no wrong lads can either put up with it or turn off, what does annoy me is the early goals we concede and the silly goals we give away, but I am sure that Eddie will tell us that this team is only one game away from being a force in the championship, perhaps Eddie will allow his Football Analysist explain to him that having the majority of posession does not guarantee wins, yes we are playing good football and perhaps we expect too much of the team, but the faults in our style of play and in individuals play does not seem to improve, having said that after over 60 years of watchind AFCB I am delighted to be we are and being there at the end of the season is thie only thing that matters, but if we were to continue to make mistakes in our workplace we would be lining up at the job centre each week

The is absolutely no shame in a newly promoted side losing to current FA cup holders ! ( who incidentally had to over come last years Premiership second place team to do so) . And there isn't much difference between this Wigan side and the FA cup winning Wigan side.

After 15 mins thought we were in for a right old " Stuffing" but managed to keep it down to 3 ( Well done to Camp) disagree about the negative Tekelo comments as he brought some great chances and lifted the Game for us, might be good to give him at least a start on Tuesday and help him with his confidence.
Wigan had a good game plan and showed their class in the fist quarter of the match. We should not forget Wigan have a team still full of ex prem players.
But again we create chances even again against a " Big " side like Wigan but just cant put them away, wonder if Eddie is looking seriously for a striker. Grabs is so good but seems to over elaborate at the last moment .

3 all in points against Wigan this season, no shame in that. Still nine points clear of the drop zone and I'll still take fourth from bottom in May as a good season' s work.

I only ever comment when we lose because I always want to try and post a positive slant against all the negativity. When we win there is no need as you don't see the doom mongers for dust.

We are 9pts from the play-offs & 9pts from relegation. Acceptable for our first season back up there. We are still going to surprise a few teams in the remaining games this season, and get turned over by teams we think we should be beating. It's a league where any one can produce a result to shock the so called big boys now and again, which we will do.
More than happy at present with EH & JT. Wait till they start spending their war chest on signings, things may get even better.
To change the subject E Mitchell spotted at Yeovil/Burnley today, wonder what he was up to?

To be fair you make reasonable observations but I don't think that any manager say to their team: Now lads I want you to let a goal in soon after the kick off as possible!! My understanding of the game is to score goals and to do so as soon as possible and preferably score more than the opposition. Today the opposition was better than us, I gather the majority of their team are loanees from Man U and Everton as well as players they had from the Premiership days. What would have surprised me would have been if we had come away with anything. Keep the faith

It sounded like we played quite well, but they played better. The difference between the two teams was the forward line. Gabban cannot play as a loan striker, Rantee is not ready for this league yet and Pitman is not good enough for this league. The only position we are lacking is a strong forward to play alongside Grabban. Get the right one and we would be a force to be reckoned with.

Once again we have lost through conceding first. Once this happens the general trend is that the game is over, as it proved today.
.
The reason why we lost Nonno is, once again for the UNTEENTH time -
.
WE have no options to change the style when it is clearly not working!!!
We had nothing on the bench to change anything except to be able to carry on with the same way of playing. i.e no options !!!
.
At the moment we are not hurting the opposition enough. Yes we may have got a few results lately but we treading on thin ice with our lack of options. How many more time does this have to pointed out to you people??
.
In addition, as I stated during the week a hefty forward (or any other kind of description one could use to describe this kind of forward) could be utilised i.e. when we concede early or when we go a goal down with 20 mins to go and or the opposition has tall central defenders and sits back on their lead or the starting set-up and tactics are not hurting the opposition.
.
We must always have an option if ones tactics are not hurting the opposition. At the Moment at AFCB we do not have options and have to plough on with one up front so the opposition will play us out accordingly.
.
We have gone a goal down today and probably still continued to play the same way, therefore the opposition will just sit back and and don't do anything stupid or maverick and just see the game out.
.
That is probably what Wigan did today.
.
If we had options fellow our goal difference would not be as bad is it is I am sure.
.
Once again the opposition had us in their back pockets far too early in the game and we have been unable to change things.
.
Now let's just see what ignorant idiots on here now will just think what I have posted above is a load of rubbish when it is in fact staring them in the face.
.
Before anybody slates what I have posted, try reading it first and analyse if there is any sense in what I have said.

Good evening to you all

Once again we have lost through conceding first. Once this happens the general trend is that the game is over, as it proved today.

The reason why we lost Nonno is, once again for the UNTEENTH time -

WE have no options to change the style when it is clearly not working!!!
We had nothing on the bench to change anything except to be able to carry on with the same way of playing. i.e no options !!!

At the moment we are not hurting the opposition enough. Yes we may have got a few results lately but we treading on thin ice with our lack of options. How many more time does this have to pointed out to you people??

In addition, as I stated during the week a hefty forward (or any other kind of description one could use to describe this kind of forward) could be utilised i.e. when we concede early or when we go a goal down with 20 mins to go and or the opposition has tall central defenders and sits back on their lead or the starting set-up and tactics are not hurting the opposition.
.
We must always have an option if ones tactics are not hurting the opposition. At the Moment at AFCB we do not have options and have to plough on with one up front so the opposition will play us out accordingly.
.
We have gone a goal down today and probably still continued to play the same way, therefore the opposition will just sit back and and don't do anything stupid or maverick and just see the game out.
.
That is probably what Wigan did today.

If we had options fellow our goal difference would not be as bad is it is I am sure.

Once again the opposition had us in their back pockets far too early in the game and we have been unable to change things.

Agree. I don't think Rantee is quite ready yet, but he soon will be. He said himself the football is completely different to what he is used to, once he gets going I think he will shock a few people.

When oh when will those who expect the team to beat every and all other team in existence will realise that it is only the first season in the Championship and Eddie is building a team whilst at the same time he is not spending the kind of money that would give us a Man City, Chelsea, arsenal etc sort of team. If the likes of Smhinto and one or two others' brain is unable to cope with that they should leave those of us who chose to see reality and treat as such.

It is evident that some of you have no faith in the team and the management if that is the case why are you wasting your time supporting our team why don't you switch to those clubs who prefer to buy success.

In my view rather than considering, the likes of me and others who wish to remain positive, as empty heads and other names you can think of it actually highlights your lack of understanding to the point of being boring and infantile.

Makes perfect sense to me, but the problem you have on here is most people will shoot you down if you do not agree with everything Howe says or does, still with a bit of luck we will play our normal one up front at home to 4th division Burton and scrape through

Once again we have lost through conceding first. Once this happens the general trend is that the game is over, as it proved today.
.
The reason why we lost Nonno is, once again for the UNTEENTH time -
.
WE have no options to change the style when it is clearly not working!!!
We had nothing on the bench to change anything except to be able to carry on with the same way of playing. i.e no options !!!
.
At the moment we are not hurting the opposition enough. Yes we may have got a few results lately but we treading on thin ice with our lack of options. How many more time does this have to pointed out to you people??
.
In addition, as I stated during the week a hefty forward (or any other kind of description one could use to describe this kind of forward) could be utilised i.e. when we concede early or when we go a goal down with 20 mins to go and or the opposition has tall central defenders and sits back on their lead or the starting set-up and tactics are not hurting the opposition.
.
We must always have an option if ones tactics are not hurting the opposition. At the Moment at AFCB we do not have options and have to plough on with one up front so the opposition will play us out accordingly.
.
We have gone a goal down today and probably still continued to play the same way, therefore the opposition will just sit back and and don't do anything stupid or maverick and just see the game out.
.
That is probably what Wigan did today.
.
If we had options fellow our goal difference would not be as bad is it is I am sure.
.
Once again the opposition had us in their back pockets far too early in the game and we have been unable to change things.

You obviously think that EH is doing everything wrong as you agree with smhinto so you may care to explain (supported by management credentials of course) how and what you would change? and I assume you are an expert on football management.

It ' s a game of percentages , I said to my pal this morning that we were due a defeat . So looking forward , we are mid table in the Championship with the prospect of playing Liverpool in the 4th round of the Cup , good enough for me . As for the Smhintos and Oxbogs etc . , you should feel for them as they are suffering from the incurable disease REPITITIOUSITUS !

Some of what you say may well be true and I may be guilty of blind faith at times but you are someone who would still find a negative slant if we were leading the premiership by 12 points as it is clearly ingrained in your dna.

Also can you please stop using the word 'we' as it suggests you are a Bournemouth supporter.

I started reading your post but then got bored so i gave up. Basically your only saying the same thing everytime we lose and a bit disappointed to see that you positively seemed pleased that we had conceded after 5 minutes on one of the other threads. It is rather strange that when we win you can barely manage 2 lines to congratulate the team and management yet when we lose you manage to produce a whole essay!
I'll try and keep it simple for you, sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Sometimes we go to places like Reading and pull off excellent results and sometimes we have days like today and are comfortably beaten. It's called football. Ask Man Utd fans how it's going this season! From the posts so far i can see that there's approximately 4 of you that are unhappy with Eddie Howe and his stewardship of the team, thank God you've got this forum where you can **** and moan to each other all day long because out in the real world,( at Dean Court), i think you'll find a whole stadium full that are very happy with what he's doing, in fact if you ever get a chance to go to a home game rather then catching bits on the radio you can here them singing his name!

You actually used the word ' options' 5 times but seem to think that the only one solution preventing AFCB becoming the next Man City is a ' hefty striker' up front ( which may work or may not ) . I think maybe a bit more coaching in the goals coming from numbers 6-11, to spread the responsibility . Just maybe you and the others are looking at the wrong picture here, from 24 teams only 10 teams have scored more than us, QPR only scoring 29 supposed to our 31 and are sat in 3rd, I think the problem is at the other end of the pitch, he is some food for thought for those who think Lee Camp is the greatest and those who think Ryan Allsop isn't ready, Lee Camp has played 12 with 3 wins and four draws totalling 13 points , Ryan Allsop played 12 with 4 wins and 2 draws totalling 14 points, so if Ryan isn't good enough have we also got the wrong person between the sticks, does the goal keeping coaching need refreshing , I don't know the answer but I'm sure many will have?

Just maybe you and the others are looking at the wrong picture here, from 24 teams only 10 teams have scored more than us, QPR only scoring 29 supposed to our 31 and are sat in 3rd, I think the problem is at the other end of the pitch, he is some food for thought for those who think Lee Camp is the greatest and those who think Ryan Allsop isn't ready, Lee Camp has played 12 with 3 wins and four draws totalling 13 points , Ryan Allsop played 12 with 4 wins and 2 draws totalling 14 points, so if Ryan isn't good enough have we also got the wrong person between the sticks, does the goal keeping coaching need refreshing , I don't know the answer but I'm sure many will have? cheeriedriteup

We must always have an option if ones tactics are not hurting the opposition. At the Moment at AFCB we do not have options and have to plough on with one up front so the opposition will play us out accordingly.

We have gone a goal down today and probably still continued to play the same way, therefore the opposition will just sit back and and don't do anything stupid or maverick and just see the game out.

That is probably what Wigan did today.

I started reading your post but then got bored so i gave up. Basically your only saying the same thing everytime we lose and a bit disappointed to see that you positively seemed pleased that we had conceded after 5 minutes on one of the other threads. It is rather strange that when we win you can barely manage 2 lines to congratulate the team and management yet when we lose you manage to produce a whole essay!
I'll try and keep it simple for you, sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Sometimes we go to places like Reading and pull off excellent results and sometimes we have days like today and are comfortably beaten. It's called football. Ask Man Utd fans how it's going this season! From the posts so far i can see that there's approximately 4 of you that are unhappy with Eddie Howe and his stewardship of the team, thank God you've got this forum where you can **** and moan to each other all day long because out in the real world,( at Dean Court), i think you'll find a whole stadium full that are very happy with what he's doing, in fact if you ever get a chance to go to a home game rather then catching bits on the radio you can here them singing his name!

Throwing your head in the sand isn't going to get away from the fact that what SMHINTO has posted is quite accurate. You and you fellow blind following posters are simply naive if you believe our current playing style and squad is going to prove successful in the Championship. Problem is, that even though we (allegedly) have the funding, we cannot buy any successful and proven players at this level due to the FA financial fair play rules. This will prove to be the ultimate stumbling block because as this is not a footballing town, the attendances at Dean Court will never get to a level where we can simply throw money at buying and sustaining Championship level players. Having said that I do not believe we will be relegated this season, as Barnsley and Yeovil are luckily in the same division as us this year. The scrap will be for the final relegation spot, and I don't think it will be ours. Regards.

First defeat for a while, it was bound to happen. We still have a squad of mostly lower league players who are still learning at this level.

Still looking good for success this season, ie staying up :)

Such a shame we have so many alleged supporters that seem to love it when we lose, but at least we don't have to put with them moaning at the games!

yep that's what it is.

You obviously think that EH is doing everything wrong as you agree with smhinto so you may care to explain (supported by management credentials of course) how and what you would change? and I assume you are an expert on football management. As I don't have such credentials I prefer to remain clueless but positive at the same time
oh dear upset now are you because not everyone agrees with you

I'll try and keep it simple for you, sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Sometimes we go to places like Reading and pull off excellent results and sometimes we have days like today and are comfortably beaten. It's called football.

Like me previous quote says , there is no shame in losing to the FA cup holders, my essay was aimed at the troll not the fact that we lost,
I was agreeing with what you wrote in your post re Smhinto writing essays when we lose yet he begrudgingly can only muster a paragraph ,if that when we win ,

Basically your only saying the same thing everytime we lose and a bit disappointed to see that you positively seemed pleased that we had conceded after 5 minutes on one of the other threads. It is rather strange that when we win you can barely manage 2 lines to congratulate the team and management yet when we lose you manage to produce a whole essay! I'll try and keep it simple for you, sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Sometimes we go to places like Reading and pull off excellent results and sometimes we have days like today and are comfortably beaten. It's called football. Ask Man Utd fans how it's going this season!

Throwing your head in the sand isn't going to get away from the fact that what SMHINTO has posted is quite accurate. You and you fellow blind following posters are simply naive if you believe our current playing style and squad is going to prove successful in the Championship. Problem is, that even though we (allegedly) have the funding, we cannot buy any successful and proven players at this level due to the FA financial fair play rules. This will prove to be the ultimate stumbling block because as this is not a footballing town, the attendances at Dean Court will never get to a level where we can simply throw money at buying and sustaining Championship level players. Having said that I do not believe we will be relegated this season, as Barnsley and Yeovil are luckily in the same division as us this year. The scrap will be for the final relegation spot, and I don't think it will be ours. Regards.
Apologies to HORSTED
You are mixing up 'head in the sand' with 'being realistic' my dear friend. If you care to read or have read my views since the beginning of the season you will see that I have said that a Position above the dropping zone would be OK for me not because I have my head in the sand but because I understand that Bournemouth is geographically (south V north) in the wrong place because as you put it it is not considered a footballing town however given time and the right support there is no reason why EH and his team should not give it a fair crack at making progress it may take a year or two unlike the likes of your good self and Smhinto I never expect my team to win every game nor I believe the answer is as easy as some of you are suggesting.

As I said sorry Horsted

What we need is a big centre forward to bring on to change the game. Really? Worked well for Leeds against Sheff Wed today didn't it?! Oh no it didn't did it.

And to the person who said Grabban can't play lone striker - Really? He has been awesome in that role recently or don't you actually watch any games.

Disappointing but we have had a good run over Xmas. I feel hat playing Grabbs up front alone has had its day for now and we need a new striking tactic.

Time to move onto the Burton game and then see what we can get from Watford.

I will take my sleeping pills back to the chemist for disposal
boring and infantile
yep that's what it is.

You obviously think that EH is doing everything wrong as you agree with smhinto so you may care to explain (supported by management credentials of course) how and what you would change? and I assume you are an expert on football management. As I don't have such credentials I prefer to remain clueless but positive at the same time
oh dear upset now are you because not everyone agrees with you
if you lost your argument and have nothing better to say or consider that being realistic is the wrong attitude to have then there is very little point in carrying on. If you care to look at what I said you will see that I was asking you to explain what you would change or do differently. We can all criticise but can we do better. If Smhinto was Sir Alex Ferguson I would take more notice of what he had to say. Accusing me of being upset because others don't agree with me only reflects your inability to argue and support your case.

Nobody likes it when we lose, its the way we lose, just Howes tactics are all wrong, when will he learn, we cant play one up front. Its just madness we make it easy for the opposition. Dont you see that?

It is not the accuracy that is in question maybe you care to read and digest what we do actually say and take a leaf out of your book by so doing.

You and other will be pleased to hear that I have had enough to this evening a bid you all a good night may you all wake up full of vigour and energy.

In addition, as I stated during the week a hefty forward (or any other kind of description one could use to describe this kind of forward) could be utilised i.e. when we concede early or when we go a goal down with 20 mins to go and or the opposition has tall central defenders and sits back on their lead or the starting set-up and tactics are not hurting the opposition.
.
We must always have an option if ones tactics are not hurting the opposition. At the Moment at AFCB we do not have options and have to plough on with one up front so the opposition will play us out accordingly.
.
We have gone a goal down today and probably still continued to play the same way, therefore the opposition will just sit back and and don't do anything stupid or maverick and just see the game out.
.
That is probably what Wigan did today.

If we had options fellow our goal difference would not be as bad is it is I am sure.

Once again the opposition had us in their back pockets far too early in the game and we have been unable to change things.

boring and infantile
yep that's what it is.

You obviously think that EH is doing everything wrong as you agree with smhinto so you may care to explain (supported by management credentials of course) how and what you would change? and I assume you are an expert on football management. As I don't have such credentials I prefer to remain clueless but positive at the same time
oh dear upset now are you because not everyone agrees with you
if you lost your argument and have nothing better to say or consider that being realistic is the wrong attitude to have then there is very little point in carrying on. If you care to look at what I said you will see that I was asking you to explain what you would change or do differently. We can all criticise but can we do better. If Smhinto was Sir Alex Ferguson I would take more notice of what he had to say. Accusing me of being upset because others don't agree with me only reflects your inability to argue and support your case.
how have i lost an argument you plonker by calling you boring and infantile like you have called someone else, get a grip man if you cant take it dont give it

Predictable comments from the doom mongers who I don't believe are fans of this club. Either that or they are just plain stupid.
I'm a season ticket holder and been a supporter for 35 years.
This is the best side I have see. With the best manager.
We are probably doing as well as we can hope for with our budget compared to the bigger clubs in this league and personally I think this is the best and most competitive league in this country.
I don't actually want to be in the premier league. We will have people turning up just to see the glamour clubs denying the true fans their tickets. The prices will rocket and we can in no way compete against the top 10 sides in the premier league so I'm happy If we stay in this league forever to be honest.
And happy watching the premier league predictability on the box.

Before I comment on the game I wish to utterly condemn the foul mouthed so called fan about 10 rows back from the middle the goal. I was a few rows back and behind me was a family with a young daughter. I'm amazed they didn't move seats. To this man I say stay at home, we don't want you. I was really pleased to see 3 stewards have a word at the beginning of the second half. After the match I thanked one of the stewards and he told 2 fans had complained about him. I wonder if the woman sat to his left will go to another game with him. Personally I'd be vey embarrassed.
As for the actual game we started far too slow and got punished. As the game progressed we got better and were still in it until the own goal. But we stuck to the passing game and didn't resort to long ball. Keep it going Eddie. When I compare our play now with a year ago we are much improved. Rantie coming on freshened it up a bit and if only his shot that sent the goalie the wrong way hadn't gone a foot the wrong side of the post it could have started a comeback. I'm watching a team that is trying to play a good game of passing football. Today they were up against a team that played in a similar style but better. We shouldn't be ashamed. This is a recent premiership club and despite the score we played well at times.
To the foul mouthed fan I say do you really think shouting at the players "this is wore than crap" is going to inspire them? STUPID. Stay away or go and support the scummers. I don' want to see you again.

It was always going to be difficult to get anything from todays game especially as the team have one eye on Tuesdays cup game against Burton and this was confirmed when Eddie said...... the team did not turn up and lets not take anything away from Wigan....a form team with a strong squad.mind you it sounded like we had some chances in the last 30 mins and I was thinking..........If only we had a Danny Ings

So, all that's missing is a proven goalscorer .........genius.

That means they wouldn't have scored 3 at the other end. Some peoples lack of intelligence is frightening.
Sometimes we win, other times we lose.

That 'free ride' also included two games against Bournemouth, so if it was that free and AFCB are that great, why didn't you end up beating MCFC in the FA Cup final? Its football, we won the cup because we did what was required to get there. Bournemouth may get their chance at the prem/cup final some day when they do what is required. Its sport, nothing is,a fee ride unless you rig games in the conference league.

Some days we just have to admit that we were well beaten by the best team on the day. Listening on Solent radio it was Wigan that had the majority of the "best chances" and would have been "out of sight" at half time for some poor finishing and good goalkeeping by Camp.we had the odd "sniff" of a half chance but were lucky to be only 1-0 down at HT. Again in the 2nd half we were under the cosh but had spells where we fashioned some good moves and halfchances . When Wigan were Fortune- ately lucky to get a deflection by Ward for their 2nd, EH changed the formation bringing on Rantie who livened up the Cherries play in a 442 shape and as time went on EH brought on Pitman in a 433 shape. We were pressing and creating chances, sady not taken,when Wigan scored their 3rd when Solent Radio temporarily went off air an apparently it was a "belter" from Jordi Gomez.

EH came on Solent and said we had been beaten by the better side but felt we were a bit below our best today.

As for you post smhinto you said Wigan would probably sit back and defend once they got their goal and I qoute "that is probably what they will do",so clearly from that comment you clearly didn't watch or listen to the game.

As for your other "obsession" of a big tall striker with a physical presence"
you have clearly not read my blog earlier in the week where I pointed out that of the 10 leading goalscorers of all time were generally well under 6ft and that the Cherries lading scorers of all time were again generally also well under 6ft. Of the most recent Pitman is 6 ft but looks shorter with his gait and Supa Fletcher at 6ft 2 " has a poor games to goals ratio. Also may I point out that the leading Premier goalscorers Suarez & Aguero are not of "huge statue". I believe Tokelo Rantie will come good(same height as Eusebio incidently) and become our own "black pearl". UTC.

Hey Chumpps, do you think you will ever be able to fill that stadium of yours, even if you did get back to prem you have to rely on the big clubs away support to fill it. F.A cup holders and you get gates of 12,000........ embarassing. At least you got rid of that d1ck Coyle.

Again in the 2nd half we were under the cosh but had spells where we fashioned some good moves and halfchances . When Wigan were Fortune- ately lucky to get a deflection by Ward for their 2nd, EH changed the formation bringing on Rantie who livened up the Cherries play in a 442 shape and as time went on EH brought on Pitman in a 433 shape. We were pressing and creating chances, sady not taken,when Wigan scored their 3rd when Solent Radio temporarily went off air an apparently it was a "belter" from Jordi Gomez.

EH came on Solent and said we had been beaten by the better side but felt we were a bit below our best today.

As for you post smhinto you said Wigan would probably sit back and defend once they got their goal and I qoute "that is probably what they will do",so clearly from that comment you clearly didn't watch or listen to the game.

As for your other "obsession" of a big tall striker with a physical presence"
you have clearly not read my blog earlier in the week where I pointed out that of the 10 leading goalscorers of all time were generally well under 6ft and that the Cherries lading scorers of all time were again generally also well under 6ft. Of the most recent Pitman is 6 ft but looks shorter with his gait and Supa Fletcher at 6ft 2 " has a poor games to goals ratio. Also may I point out that the leading Premier goalscorers Suarez & Aguero are not of "huge statue". I believe Tokelo Rantie will come good(same height as Eusebio incidently) and become our own "black pearl". UTC.
It's not just a case of scoring goals having a big striker is also about holding the ball up , putting defenders under pressure , going for headers when crossed in the box ( as we seem to keep doing ) . And if you have watched afcb for a long time you should remember just how fletch played , we won many a game because of his big presence , at the moment we are not a threat in the air at all . And just how long do you think we should keep our faith in rantie and Pittman ? ,

That 'free ride' also included two games against Bournemouth, so if it was that free and AFCB are that great, why didn't you end up beating MCFC in the FA Cup final? Its football, we won the cup because we did what was required to get there. Bournemouth may get their chance at the prem/cup final some day when they do what is required.

It's Eddies tactics that have got us into the Championship, so saying Howes tactics are all wrong is quite frankly bleedin ridiculous.
We are doing fine no one likes losing but not many of us would have refused the position we are in at the beginning of the season.

The posters who we are are all aware of such as Shminto,Oxbig etc have all got huge psychological issues.clearly they command no respect in their personal lives and probably have no status in society so the only way they can feel important is by coming on this forum and trying to wind up the true afc supporters.by responding to them it gives them a perverse pleasure believing they have some power and influence and also being able to hide behind their keyboards means they are probably cowards who in everyday life wouldn't dare to make such inflammatory remarks. Unfortunately they can't be blocked on here so we will just have to put up with them when we lose. We should also not confuse them with the genuine afcb half glass empty supporters who mean well but have a naturally negative view of life

It sounded like we played quite well, but they played better. The difference between the two teams was the forward line.

Grabban can't play as a lone striker? He's was superb at Reading, Wednesday and Brighton. Was a bit quiet today but didn't really have the service. You must be watching different games?

Sorry if anybody has already said this but can we please just ignore Shminto and Oxbig. This is a most effective tool with most children (and adults) idiotically seeking attention. Read on their own (without any other knowledge of the situation), Oxbig's posts would suggest we have never won a game and were relegated last season and Shminto's brilliantly incisive "if we let in the first goal we are more likely to lose" begs belief (so a team which goes 1:0 down is more likely to lose than one which goes 1:0 up... brilliant, I hope all the world's top coaches take advantage of this fantastic new gem of knowledge). I can see Jose telling his lads "I saw this great idea last week, today, I want you to try not to let in the first goal but to score it yourselves"!, I clearly don't the genius football brain Shminto does so I'd better not try commenting on his posts anymore,. I have no problem with intelligent positive (e.g. how people think we could improve comments after any result by the way, just the nonsense these two talk.

we all want the team to do well, and most of appreciate that there will be matches when we are second best, but it cannot be ignored that the fact is that Eddie has a plan A but no plan B, we are set up with the extra man in midfield in an attempt to flood the midfield, and one lone striker, this does appear to work to a certain extent by giving us a lot of posession, but we then fail to use that posession and turn it to our advantage by scoring goals, midfield and defenders are not scoring at the rate they did last season and this is putting more pressure on the striker, there can be no excuse for the number of slow starts we make and it looks either Eddie has asked them to sit tight for 20 minutes or his pre match team talk does not motivate them, with a couple of additions I feel the players are good enough but they need to start to show it

If you were an employer with a job vacancy and you were informed that Shminto,Oxbig and holdinkraeft were coming for an interview would it fill you with joy based on having read their posts? I would say they display typical charcteristics of under achievers with a tendency to antagonise and attention seek and a possible underlying psychosis. Not qualities that are valued highly in society.

Personally, I couldn't agree with you more. Best post on here by far.
I entirely agree with you, a far better Division to be in than the Premiership, so tight and so many good , evenly matched sides in it, good players too Danny Ings strike was fit for the goal of the Season. Whilst it's unwise to comment on a game relying on a commentary and "edited highlights", the first goal we conceded was a defensive lapse, the second a "tad" unlucky, Ward's "slice " could have gone anywhere, the third a very good strike. The "stats " shew that we had 56 % possesion, twice as many corners, but half the number of goal attempts and shots on target. That's quite revealing! Therer are some supporters that perhaps need reminding of the pre Season situation, when as a result of "power play" between the Mitchells and Max Demin, no money was available to Eddie and he was very restricted in player choice, this is a Season of holding on in this Division, establishing the Club as a Championship team and we are doing just that. It's unrealistic to expect more. I was pleased to seee Chris Hargreaves make a good start with Jayden , making one and scoring one, is filling out too - perhaps in the future our "big" striker.

I honestly take what the doom and gloom merchants post with a pinch of salt ,the same ones that predicted relegation by Christmas ,and I'd put money down that they are the same who predicted Eddie Mitchell bringing the club to its knees and dean court being transformed into a housing estate ,how wrong on both counts,sitting 9 points from playoffs and 9 points from the relegation zone and no sign of a housing estate !

Watched the goals last night. Two screamers and one freak goal.

Wigan on a role since Uwe Rossler took over so it was always going to be a difficult game.

I'm proud of the team and where we are at this stage of the season. A mid table finish would be a fantastic achievement.

Keep going everyone. Lots more games to come so enjoy them all.

Personally, I couldn't agree with you more. Best post on here by far.
I entirely agree with you, a far better Division to be in than the Premiership, so tight and so many good , evenly matched sides in it, good players too Danny Ings strike was fit for the goal of the Season. Whilst it's unwise to comment on a game relying on a commentary and "edited highlights", the first goal we conceded was a defensive lapse, the second a "tad" unlucky, Ward's "slice " could have gone anywhere, the third a very good strike. The "stats " shew that we had 56 % possesion, twice as many corners, but half the number of goal attempts and shots on target. That's quite revealing! Therer are some supporters that perhaps need reminding of the pre Season situation, when as a result of "power play" between the Mitchells and Max Demin, no money was available to Eddie and he was very restricted in player choice, this is a Season of holding on in this Division, establishing the Club as a Championship team and we are doing just that. It's unrealistic to expect more. I was pleased to seee Chris Hargreaves make a good start with Jayden , making one and scoring one, is filling out too - perhaps in the future our "big" striker.
Having supported them for 67 years,i agree with these comments,we should be content to stay in the championship,where we will see some good sides, and NOT be out of our depth,we will not be able to cover the high wages of premier players, or have the gates to do so.As said before many evenly matched sides,and good players to watch.

WE have no options to change the style when it is clearly not working!!!
We had nothing on the bench to change anything except to be able to carry on with the same way of playing. i.e no options !!!

At the moment we are not hurting the opposition enough. Yes we may have got a few results lately but we treading on thin ice with our lack of options. How many more time does this have to pointed out to you people??

In addition, as I stated during the week a hefty forward (or any other kind of description one could use to describe this kind of forward) could be utilised i.e. when we concede early or when we go a goal down with 20 mins to go and or the opposition has tall central defenders and sits back on their lead or the starting set-up and tactics are not hurting the opposition.

We must always have an option if ones tactics are not hurting the opposition. At the Moment at AFCB we do not have options and have to plough on with one up front so the opposition will play us out accordingly.

We have gone a goal down today and probably still continued to play the same way, therefore the opposition will just sit back and and don't do anything stupid or maverick and just see the game out.

That is probably what Wigan did today.

If we had options fellow our goal difference would not be as bad is it is I am sure.

Once again the opposition had us in their back pockets far too early in the game and we have been unable to change things.

What we need is a big centre forward to bring on to change the game. Really? Worked well for Leeds against Sheff Wed today didn't it?! Oh no it didn't did it.

And to the person who said Grabban can't play lone striker - Really? He has been awesome in that role recently or don't you actually watch any games.
You will never convince the big lump up front society that a great big centre forward isnt the answer. Im with you not the way forward. Didn't see todays match but disappointing result but on to the next game. I did see the Leicester game on tv excellent side but look at the players they've got and the terrific work rate closing down the opposition. They did bring a big centre forward on late in the game he was useless. Mind you if we sign one and it works I will be surprised but delighted just want us to stay up

Nobody likes it when we lose, its the way we lose, just Howes tactics are all wrong, when will he learn, we cant play one up front. Its just madness we make it easy for the opposition. Dont you see that?
One up front worked very well at Reading (3points), a bit luckily at Brighton (1point) but superbly at Wednesday (3 points). Perhaps you didn't see any of those performances?*

I say perhaps, but I'm confident you didn't :)

I don't see how getting overrun in midfield would help the style of football we play, or are you of the "hoof it at a big bloke" style of alleged supporter who just wants box-to-box get rid ASAP midfielders?

I think Eddie does have a plan B as he will go to two or even three up front moving Grabban wider and giving pitman and Rantie a runs out. Clearly doesn't always work and can leave us open but it is a plan B. Although I agree that a big man up front is not necessarily the answer it would be useful to have some height and power on the bench to come on for the last twenty minutes as we did so well with Supa Fletch

Hey Chumpps, do you think you will ever be able to fill that stadium of yours, even if you did get back to prem you have to rely on the big clubs away support to fill it. F.A cup holders and you get gates of 12,000........ embarassing. At least you got rid of that d1ck Coyle.
Not embarrassing really when Wigan is a famous rugby town where most people are not into football. Those who are usually support a glory club like Liverpool, mufc or mcfc as they are all within a 20 min drive. Wigan will never have a huge fan base due to this. Look at the Bournemouth area, its afcb and that is it really in the decent football leagues. Southampton and Portsmouth are the next closest teams, so anyone into football generally goes for Bournemouth in this are to actually go to a game. This creates a large fan base of loyal fans. Also Wigan is a small town, Bournemouth is a much larger place with more locals to attend. Both teams have very loyal fans, the day of winning the fa cup, every person in Wigan claimed to be a 'fan' but two days later those who were not had forgotten it, but many of the fans at that final have been attending since the pre div 3 days.
