AFC Bournemouth: Cup cash bonanza will not alter Howe's plans

Bournemouth Echo: BOSS: Eddie Howe BOSS: Eddie Howe

CHERRIES boss Eddie Howe insisted he would be sticking to his FA Cup game-plan despite the lure of a potential £250,000 cash windfall.

The bonanza will be up for grabs for the victors when Cherries host Burton in their rearranged third round tie at Dean Court on Tuesday.

With a visit from Premier League Liverpool at stake, the clash has been chosen for live television and will be shown by ITV on January 25 (12.45pm).

As a result, both clubs stand to receive a broadcast fee of £144,000, while the winners of the third round match will bank £67,500 in prize money plus 45 per cent of the net gate receipts.

Howe has already stated the FA Cup is not his main priority but has also said he will be taking the competition “very seriously”.

And while he was expected to make changes for Saturday’s showdown with the Brewers – which was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch – Howe said he had no plans to change his approach for the restaged game.

He told the Daily Echo: “We prepare for every game to give the best performance we can and to win, regardless of who we are playing. We prepared for Saturday’s tie the same way as we would have for a league game.

“I was planning to rotate the squad but with players who won promotion from League One last season. I have been tweaking things throughout the season, using different players for different games, so I am sure it will be no different for Burton.

“The end result is that we desperately want to win for all sorts of reasons. We want to progress in the cup and there is a financial reward at the end of it.

“I don’t think you can ever prepare for a game thinking about money. It is never about that for coaches or players. You want to take pride in your preparation and performance and they are the key things we look at. We will be doing everything we can to win for the good of the club and for the supporters.”

Meanwhile, Howe said he was pondering whether or not to replace first-team coach Chris Hargreaves, who is the new manager of Torquay.

Howe said: “We will take a little time to see how things develop. Jason (Tindall) and myself are very hands-on so I wouldn’t say there is a necessity to fill the role but it is something we will look at. We do have someone in mind.”

Cherries have again declined to comment on suggestions Paul Groves and Shaun Brooks have left their respective posts as youth team manager and head of youth.

However, a reshuffle has seen Tom Mitchell appointed manager of youth football operations, with his previous position as director of football scrapped. He remains a director of the company.

One game away from a match against the might of Liverpool FC... I was 2 years old the last time we played LFC in a competitive match. And there are many Cherries supporters attending matches today, who won't remember the '84 clash v Man Utd.

It's the match that the fans want, so lets do all we possibly can to make it a reality!

I appreciate that EH may have made a commitment to use certain players last Saturday but the situation has changed now and Burton has become a must win game. This is not about the money anymore but about delivering Liverpool to Dean Court for the supporters and the TV exposure for our steadily growing club.

I may be wrong, but I think he wasn't eligible for Saturday's game because he didn't sign for us permanently in time to be registered and therefore available for selection, I don't think it will be a problem now for the re-arranged game, he isn't cup-tied.

One thing we have to be aware of is that very often when clubs such as ouselves draw a bigger club in cup competitions, there is a tendancy for players not wishing to become injured prior to the game, simply because everyone wants to play in the cup-tie.
.
The upshot of what I am saying is that players tend to shy away from tackles and putting tackles in to avoid injury and then in the process wind up losing a couple of League games prior to the cup tie as a result of backing off.
.
Many of you may think this daft but I can assure you I seen it happen on many occasions.
.
Let's all hope this is not the case at Wigan on Saturday.
.
Food for thought on this one.

Ranties goal from Pitmans flick on at Burnley was sensational but you had to be there to appreciate it.

Eddie will I am sure put out a very competitive team against Burton, with may be 2/3 of the fringe players coming in. A bit dismayed by the appoinment of Tom Mitchell as Director of Youth Development though, this would seem to block the return of Joe Roach and goodbye to a vibrant youth scheme. Our Chairman Mr Mostyn, confirmed that funds were available for transfers, should Eddie wish to strengthen the team, subject to the provision and needs of the Fair Play Policy, which bears down hardest on Champioship Clubs. Probably means mor must go, before anyone new comes in and will be boosted by the Management Changes that will reduce costs..

I said back in August that we should go for Leon Clarke and will Coventry still in financial problems, I expect that he would not be expensive.

He has scored 18 goals this season and is big at 6ft 2", stong and only 28 years old. Also, he has scored goals with Wolves and Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship.

Personally, I thought that he was very impressive when Coventry beat us 2 nil at DC last season. Would give us so much than Rantie!!!

I think you will find that there are under-lyeing problems with Mr Leon Clarke. I have spoken to a number of fellow assessors about him over the last two years and the genereal tendancy is that he enjoys the old alcoholic sauce too much. Hence, why he is a journeyman on loans to other clubs but nobody will take him permanently. With his current scoring record someone would have taken him by now, but alas no one has - I wonder why.

The same applied to Luke Rodgers is used to be at Shrewsbury who also enjoyed looking at his reflection through the bottom of a pint glass.

You could be right, because based on his scoring record with Coventry in particular and general physique, you would have thought that there would be a list of Championship clubs after him.

Did the other assessors ever explain libel laws to you? You do know you would need to be able to prove what you've just said if either Leon Clarke or Luke Rodgers became aware of your statement above and decided to follow the modern trend of suing first and asking questions later?

There's no guarantee we will beat Burton on Tuesday no matter what team
Eddie puts out. I expect him to make at least 3 or 4 changes to the starting line up at Brighton. Possibly bringing in Allsop, Pitman, Rantie and McDonald. As Eddie says these are all first team squad players who will play a big part in the season so they need to play games. I still think we will progress through to the next round if we put Burton under early pressure.

Glad to see that he does remember me I have spoken to him on more than one occasion. He has property in the Ash Green area of Coventry. He is a good foward player but what he alledgedy does in in his social time is his affair.
.
Next time you contact him you can remind him that I also am over 6ft, ex Gulf war veteran (the first time around), 13 and a half stone, reasonably fit through my cycling an running !!

Just for rhe record I also would like to see Mr Leon Clark at AFCB. But minus his alledged social credentials.

Yes you are quite right, an act of literal idleness on my part. However, we must not lose sight of the fact that this is not the Gettysburg address nor is it a thesis on nuclear fusion. This is a minor newspaper forum of little impotance. Therefore particular spelling is of little importance.

I may be wrong, but I think he wasn't eligible for Saturday's game because he didn't sign for us permanently in time to be registered and therefore available for selection, I don't think it will be a problem now for the re-arranged game, he isn't cup-tied.
registration of players goes from the original tie, so if he was not eligible then he wont be now
If that's right, then fair enough, be a shame to not have Camp playing.........just wish rules were consistent, because if a player was due to be suspended for a game and a match was called off, he would just miss the following match after that and then be available for a re-arranged match. Doesn't seem a fair system that Lee can play on Saturday but have to miss the cup-tie.

I said back in August that we should go for Leon Clarke and will Coventry still in financial problems, I expect that he would not be expensive.

He has scored 18 goals this season and is big at 6ft 2", stong and only 28 years old. Also, he has scored goals with Wolves and Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship.

Personally, I thought that he was very impressive when Coventry beat us 2 nil at DC last season. Would give us so much than Rantie!!!
But there must be a reason why no-one is touching him? His spat with Di Canio at Swindle is still in a few memories, it seems.

Did the other assessors ever explain libel laws to you? You do know you would need to be able to prove what you've just said if either Leon Clarke or Luke Rodgers became aware of your statement above and decided to follow the modern trend of suing first and asking questions later?
I think you will find that I personally have not said anything about these players directly. You may have to re-read the post.

I have stated in my post that there is a 'general tendancy' of opinion that he enjoys the alcoholic sauce, I did'nt say that he 'did enjoy etc, of which is a different statement altogether.
.
To answer your question(s) directly - Yes I am aware of the libel laws, hence my pacific wording in my post.
.
Regards
Is pacific wording similar to Atlantic wording, or did you mean "specific".
Yes you are quite right, an act of literal idleness on my part. However, we must not lose sight of the fact that this is not the Gettysburg address nor is it a thesis on nuclear fusion. This is a minor newspaper forum of little impotance. Therefore particular spelling is of little importance.
.
Plus the fact that i do most of my posting in my works time often trying to do three things at once, hence, the odd drift in spelling and sentence structuring..
.
In addition, for some unknown reason this site often does not pick up on every key that you type, i.e. for some reason it misses out symbols if ones types too fast.
.
It maybe of little consequence to you but I do hold a degree in English.
.

If you are a Gulf War veteran then you must have done that English degree quite a while back?? Hence you've forgotten most of what you've learnt, judging by some of your grammar and spelling??? Just a joke, don't get on your high horse!!

There's no guarantee we will beat Burton on Tuesday no matter what team
Eddie puts out. I expect him to make at least 3 or 4 changes to the starting line up at Brighton. Possibly bringing in Allsop, Pitman, Rantie and McDonald. As Eddie says these are all first team squad players who will play a big part in the season so they need to play games. I still think we will progress through to the next round if we put Burton under early pressure.
TK is in South Africa since monday,
Bafana Bafana play thier frst match this saturday against Mozambique

West Ham 5-0 at City at the moment and still 25minutes to go. 'Results counts'!!! anyone volunteer for West Ham's new manager!!!!
Redknapp back to the hammers !!!!
6-0 I feel sorry for their fans
There you go, as I said earlier to all you thumbs-downers, goals win games!
But yes I do feel for the Hammers fans
