Howe: The normal Bournemouth didn't turn up

MANAGER Eddie Howe felt a “drop in standards” had led to Cherries surrendering their proud unbeaten record in League One.

Howe, who returned to the Dean Court hot-seat in October, tasted his first league defeat in 16 games as Walsall triumphed 3-1 at the Banks’s Stadium yesterday.

The Saddlers overcame the late dismissal of striker Febian Brandy and sunk Cherries courtesy of two Will Grigg penalties and a fluke goal from Sam Mantom.

Howe said: “There were a lot of talking points. We didn’t really show our true colours and it was a disappointing performance. In saying that, it was a strange game and could easily have been different. We had enough chances to have scored three or four goals but it wasn’t to be and the penalties were disappointing. If we had defended better, I think we would have won.

“We lost our way after they had gone down to 10 men and I thought our management of the game was very poor. It was difficult watching because we are a lot better than that and have shown we are a lot better. For whatever reason, we were below standard.

“Right from the start, you could tell it wasn’t the normal Bournemouth that had turned up. We have got to use this as a learning experience. We are still a young side so have got to make sure we come back better.

“We are still in a good position compared with where we were. We have got a lot of games to come and need to make sure we look at our performance levels. We are renowned for passing the ball and didn’t do that against Walsall.”

Defeat, which saw Walsall complete the double over Cherries following their 2-1 win at Dean Court in September, saw Howe’s men drop a place to eighth in League One.

Howe had been forced into a late reshuffle after winger Marc Pugh (dead leg) had failed a fitness test and midfielder Richard Hughes (ill) had withdrawn from the squad. And Cherries’ woes were compounded when Harry Arter limped off with a hamstring injury in the 36th minute.

Although Cherries exited the FA Cup at the hands of Wigan in midweek, Howe refused to use this as an excuse and said: “Yes, we had a hard game in the week but it didn’t legislate for some of the decision making from us against Walsall. It is something we have got to get over pretty quickly. It is the end of our good league run but we have still got to look forward.

“We are still in a good position, although if we play like that again, we are going to make it very difficult for ourselves. We have got to make sure this is a one-off and quickly get back to winning ways.

“We have got to perform and make sure we live up to the hype. There is always pressure when we play now because we are one of the big scalps. But it is a great position to be in and we need to relish that.”

New signing Ryan Fraser looked on from a seat in the Main Stand at the Banks’s Stadium after a delay in receiving his international clearance preventing the Scotsman from featuring in the Cherries squad. Howe hoped the 18-year-old would be in contention for Tuesday’s scheduled trip to Hartlepool.

We lose a game after how many league games without losing and certain fans from other clubs come out of the woodwork to give their opinions.
We had a bad day and a bad game, I wonder how many other teams have in a season ?
There are some great Swindon fans, such a shame that we have the others who choose to come and post.
I wish Swindon well, but I wish Cherries better.

All good sides have off days, it was our turn!! Eddie has set very high standards and he will get us back to them quickly that you can be certain of! We are just as likely to go on another unbeaten run after Saturday, Eddie is building a side for the future and as he said they are a young side, add to that the key players missing or going off injured and you had all the ingredients for a slip up. As for the mistakes, well that's football they were not at their best which made for decisions of a questionable nature, part of me thinks they were expecting the game to be called off and were not prepared mentally, that will be a lesson learned!! As for Swindon, who cares!!

Swindon Town have been put up for sale in order to avoid administration, with debts thought to be around £13m.
The club's owner, Andrew Black, is unwilling to put in further funds, and is actively seeking fresh investment.
Around £9m could be wiped from the deficit owed to investors if they enter administration, but the club may then face a points deduction.
"Andrew has made it clear he's looking for new investors," chairman Sir William Patey told BBC Wiltshire.

Calm down ladies, it's only a bit of banter. In the week before and even shortly after we met, our forums were full of AFCB fans telling us how superior you are. I'm giving back a little of we had to put up with. Now a few facts. 1 -Our major shareholder wants to sell most, not all of his shares as running the club is effecting his health. He has taken on £13 million of debt and the club owes nothing to anybody. The chairman will recoup some of this by selling shares and we have several interested parties at present. 2 - Matt Ritchie is still not for sale. 3 - I like Eddie Howe and think he will lead you to at least the playoffs off's. I'm not just a Town fan but a football fan and like to see good football rewarded, so I believe you have a decent chance of promotion. 3 - I will darken your Site no more, good luck for the rest of the season.

URGENT MESSAGE TO THE VILLAGE OF HIGHWORTH.
We have located your missing village idiot. Seems he got dis-orientated and landed up on AFCB fans forum. Can somebody please return the little **** to his rightful owner. Thanks ever so.!!!!
Ps. He might be a little fragile after the verbal bashing he received.
Steady - this so say 'verbal bashing' was the reaction played for - best ignore this 'only light hearted banter' - that may be the way forward...

Good luck til we meet again.

There's alot of rubbish being spouted about our club at the moment and today we have received an apology from the football league paper and compensation for the lies they wrote on sunday and the Oxford forum have removed some of their comments about our club so people need to very careful what they state.

As for you steady eddie 1 - if you dish it out i will dish it back i know alot of Bournemouth fans and most are ok and i always look to see how you do as i live between southampton and bournemouth but am a swindon fan so i like the local teams around here to do ok but not if they play my team.

No where near the mark LeGob im afraid. Wont be eligable for retirement for at least another 25 years. Do have a bit of time on my hands during the day as i work nights, hence why i sometimes post late at night. What makes you think i cant take the banter.????. Believe me sunshine i can do banter with the best of em, so if you come on here spouting a load of bull you are fair-game. Frankly i have no interest at all in your club, other than when you are our opposition. Fair do's Swindon got a lucky point off us but that was 10 days ago, so really it is time to stop wetting ur pants and move on.
As for me being the sad one, really, you do realise this is an afcb site and you are constantly on here, so honestly who is the sad one?????.
