QUINN AND CHERRIES PART COMPANY

Bournemouth Echo: TURBULENT REIGN: Jimmy Quinn TURBULENT REIGN: Jimmy Quinn

CHERRIES last night parted company with Jimmy Quinn - just 121 days after he took over as manager.

Quinn’s turbulent four-month reign was brought to an end following a meeting with the club’s owners at the Royal Bath Hotel on New Year's Eve.

The 49-year-old Ulsterman had refused to quit after calls for his head had intensified following Cherries’ calamitous defeat to relegation rivals Barnet on Sunday.

But with the club’s Football League status under threat and the team on a downward spiral, the Cherries board acted swiftly to relieve Quinn of his services.

Quinn, who succeeded Kevin Bond at the start of September, took charge of just 24 league and cup matches, with Cherries winning five and drawing seven of their 19 league games.

Eddie Howe, who worked under Quinn’s predecessor Bond, will take charge of team affairs for Cherries’ trip to Darlington on Saturday. He is expected to be assisted by the club’s head of youth Joe Roach.

Meanwhile, decisions have yet to be made on the futures of assistant boss Jason Tindall and director of football operations Ted Sutton.

A club statement, issued last night, confirmed Quinn’s departure. It read: “AFC Bournemouth have today parted company with manager Jimmy Quinn. The move follows a board meeting held this evening with the new AFC Bournemouth board.

“The club would like to take this opportunity to thank Jimmy for his efforts over the past four months and wishes him every success in the future.

“Eddie Howe will become the caretaker manager with immediate effect and will take charge of the team for their League Two clash with Darlington on Saturday.

“The club are holding a press conference at Dean Court on Friday morning at 10.30 where the new board will update the local media on the current situation at the club.”

Quinn’s was the shortest managerial reign at Dean Court – by some considerable margin – since Cherries joined the Football League in 1923.

He presided over Cherries’ disastrous FA Cup exit at the hands of non-league minnows Blyth Spartans earlier this month, which cost the club around £250,000 in lost revenue.

This has to be the right decision. Quinn was completely out of his depth in a very challenging situation for any manager to face.

We desperately need someone who can quickly galvanise and motivate the players to have confidence in themselves and each other.

I don't know who made the decision - with Baker gone as well it is difficult to keep up with proceedings.

Who ever is in charge, please take your time tomake a new appointment - we are now in the last chance saloon. In the meantime lets have faith in Eddie and Joe to get the team playing positively

Off for an extra celebratory drink - Happy New Year to all those supporters who have endured so much this season - let's hope for a better 2009!

I wish you a Happy New Year and I trust that you find more suitable employment that brings you success.

OK, 24 pts would 'really' put us in 18th, but let's face it, the team needs better players and the only way to get that is to pay more. For a club recently in administration, and to be honest, very little to offer potential investors/sponsors, this increase in revenue can only come from supporters. While an average gate of over 4,000 is respectable, I can't see any sensible ticket price increases being enough to bring in good quality players. Maybe the town would appeal to a reasonable on-loan signing, but we might as well accept what we've got and make the most of the situation. In other words, enjoy supporting a lower League 2 team, but don't let bad results come as a surprise to get upset about.

Sorry for depressing reality check!

Good Luck for 2009, hope we can stay up!

I think your point of view was over optomistic. A true reality check shows it different.
If there was not a recession one could have a glimmer of hope for the club. But with money being very short for supporters and business it will be a hard struggle for the club to survive.
After going bust before, leaving money owing to many who would be foolish enough to risk the same again.
Half price tickets show how desperate its all got. Gate numbers may increase but they should double to break even on the money. Next season the prices will have to increase to the original plus. Who will then pay double this seasons prices. Sorry but it will be bust before 2010.
Supporters would be better spending their money on paying off bills and the mortgage. Even a lottery ticket is better odds as an investment.

The football both home and away is so boring at the moment lack of inspiration and I have never been board whole my life than the last two games. Quinn just simply did not inspire the players and think tactics such as what Phil Brown (who was not good enough for us) will work wonders with the team. 2009 a fresh new year and there is only one way things can go at the club.

I have been a cherries supporter since the sixties threw good and bad times. for me the John Bond, Ted mcdougal, Phil Boyer, Tony Powell era was the best. Those times are over now and i think the cherries would make a good amateur team in the Blue square league. I Just think we don't have the resources to support a pro team anymore and i think we would be better off running a good amateur team. Lets face it the standard of football wouldn't be much different and the players we would attract would be keen semi pros.

Whilst I agree 121 days is not long what was worrying was the remarkable decline in the standard of play during JQ's tenure. AFCB, whilst never over successful, has always had teams trying to play the correct way ie passing on the deck. The teams under Quinn gave away far too much cheap possession by long, misdirected balls. We need someone in midfield who has mobility and vision, defence who has presence and direction and a striker who can get 15 goals a season.

Joe Roach doesn't want the job permanently and is doing an excellent job with the youth team.Eddie is AFCB through & through and will give 110% but is inexperienced. I hope the new manager is someone like Boothroyd, Holloway or Cotterill. Get rid of Sutton & Tindall.Only problem is time is not on our hands.

My thanks to Mr Baker for his efforts and for doing the honourable thing by standing down. I also wish JQ all the best for the future. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be.

Put Joe Roach in charge until the end of the season and let him use his youth team players. They may at least put in an effort unlike the so called professionals we have right now...

While an average gate of over 4,000 is respectable, I can't see any sensible ticket price increases being enough to bring in good quality players. Maybe the town would appeal to a reasonable on-loan signing, but we might as well accept what we've got and make the most of the situation. In other words, enjoy supporting a lower League 2 team, but don't let bad results come as a surprise to get upset about. Sorry for depressing reality check! Good Luck for 2009, hope we can stay up!
I think your point of view was over optomistic. A true reality check shows it different. If there was not a recession one could have a glimmer of hope for the club. But with money being very short for supporters and business it will be a hard struggle for the club to survive. After going bust before, leaving money owing to many who would be foolish enough to risk the same again. Half price tickets show how desperate its all got. Gate numbers may increase but they should double to break even on the money. Next season the prices will have to increase to the original plus. Who will then pay double this seasons prices. Sorry but it will be bust before 2010. Supporters would be better spending their money on paying off bills and the mortgage. Even a lottery ticket is better odds as an investment.
you can spend your money on a lottery ticket as an investment if you want, but i am still going to see the cherries. things are bad at the moment at dc but the team need our support. at least this new man seems to mean business. takes over at lunch time, quinn at out by tea. best of luck to the team for saturday
My local charty needs my support more than the Cherries. At least with the charity I know the money goes to a good cause. With the Cherries it pays stupid wages to poor players, the management get a nice whack, it fails to make money and goes into administration, thereby leaving many local business's in debt.
Wrong time, wrong club, wrong league to invest in.
Good luck to those that have faith in the Cherries but you will be sadly disappointed.

Don't worry about Quinn.
he will end up like useless Bond and become a 'yes' man for some manager in the premiership earning loads of money.
Bournemouth is just a resting place for footballs has-beens!!!!

In all Honesty I am totally delighted that Quinn has gone because otherwise we might of had to undergo all 2009 of much more losses. Yes I believe this restructuring will bring some results providing they don't bring in another over confident manager with no delivery at the end.

Baker is doing the right thing now but much more restructuring needs to be done and yes the names mention on this site about giving their notice to needs to be upheld and any other members that are no up to the Job. Maybe a few players as well. Yes the strategy is so important with out a road map how can you direct a team to a positive outcome. Like I said before with all the years this club been around They should now be 1st Division team. I remember my Grandfather who plated for Bournemouth as well long time ago.

Bournemouth F.C. should have never ended up in such bad Financial difficulties for so long as it has. Baker was the only real person around at the time that put his money were his mouth was and was excepted by the Administrator as viable. If anyone else had been a real viable asset at the time then they would of been excepted but their is a lot of dangerous people out their that were bogus bidders. Baker will do the right thing on this in the end and get Bournemouth F.C. some good results might not happen right away because he has only got rid of Quinn but in a few games time when they have a better Caretakers looking after the Guys you see how this club will move up slowly. It's only a matter of time before this happens. But one thing for Shaw is Baker has done the right thing just needs to get rid of a few others now to complete the restructuring of this good fine club. If more people came to the game other than the numbers now more revenues could come into the bank of Bournemouth F.C. and would make things much more better and stronger for the club. Give baker a chance he is making improvement's and recognises this has to be done no matter what, at least he recognises the fact and not ignoring it.

Something to add, I guess most of you guys have 2009 calendars of AFC Bournemouth. I think we should be given our money back we get them and by the time we turn the page over the player has left Jimmy Quinn and Tindal are on December 2009 I said then only a matter of time how many managers would we have gone through by we get to the page with Quinn on?

Things are only going to get better utciad
