FA Cup Report: Brave Cherries beaten by Premier stars (WITH VIDEO)

Bournemouth Echo: FA Cup Report: Brave Cherries beaten by Premier stars FA Cup Report: Brave Cherries beaten by Premier stars

CLINICAL goals from Liverpool duo Victor Moses and Daniel Sturridge put paid to Cherries’ hopes of a famous giant-killing at Dean Court today. Eddie Howe’s men enjoyed the lion’s share of possession during the first half but trailed at the break to Moses’s well-taken 26th-minute strike.

And the Premier League high-fliers left Cherries with a mountain to climb when Sturridge doubled their lead on the hour with another fine finish.

Cherries made an encouraging start with Andrew Surman heading narrowly over the crossbar from Charlie Daniels’s third-minute cross.

And Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones helped a free-kick from Simon Francis over the top as Cherries forced a flurry of early corners.

Marc Pugh nodded into the side netting after meeting Matt Ritchie’s deep cross before Tommy Elphick’s brave block thwarted Sturridge.

Steven Gerrard saw his curling 25-yard free-kick just clear the crossbar after Harry Arter had scythed down Suarez.

Liverpool made the breakthrough midway through the first half when Moses fired low past Cherries goalkeeper Lee Camp from 20 yards.

Camp was powerless to prevent the winger opening the scoring after he had been picked out by Suarez’s inch-perfect crossfield pass.

As Cherries went in search of a quick response, Lewis Grabban’s tame strike failed to trouble Jones, while Arter’s rasping effort flashed past the upright.

Grabban saw another shot blocked following a neat one-two with Arter before Cherries fashioned a couple of presentable chances to equalise.

Firstly, Surman, teed up by Daniels’s low cross, saw his effort deflect off covering defender Kolo Toure and loop over the crossbar for a corner.

And from the flag-kick, taken by Surman, Elphick nipped in front of his marker, only to plant his header over the crossbar.

Jordan Henderson wasted a glorious chance to double Liverpool’s lead when he skied a shot high into the Steve Fletcher Stand.

And as the first half drew to a close, Arter fired a right-foot shot straight down Jones’s throat from the edge of the box.

Sturridge made it 2-0 when he beat Camp with a finely-taken finish after latching on to a defence-splitting pass from Suarez on the hour.

Surman and Grabban both sent efforts wide before Sturridge’s audacious lob landed on top of the crossbar following Gerrard’s sweeping pass.

Suarez lobbed a good chance over the bar after racing through 14 minutes from time before Jones beat away a ferocious drive from Grabban.

And in stoppage-time, Camp pulled off a top-drawer save at his near post to keep out Suarez’s thumping strike.

AFCB gave a really good account of themselves against world class players, but if Eddie had been a little braver it could so easily have been a different scoreline. All the good work, but no one to put the ball in the net and finish it off.

We played fairy good football at times, but were yet again seen wanting in the final third. Rantie and Pitman did nothing but worsen our presence on the field when they were brought on. Now the hillarity of this is now over, lets see if we can actually score a goal in open play on Tuesday. Regards.

Very well played for two thirds of the pitch cherries, but YET AGAIN when we have the ball in the last third where o where are our players? I am sorry to say this would appear to be our downfall. We matched Liverpool over large parts of the pitch but the box is a no-go area it seems. Liverpool were well contained for the most part, however, when they attack they have players in and around the box to benefit from passes and more importantly loose balls.
On a more unlikely, but you never know, subject to having seen what we are about footballing wise, perhaps Brendan would consider a loan move for one or more of their academy players.
Well played both sides for putting on a cracking game.

No mention of the blatant penalty when it was 0-1 in the second half, after Francis had his shirt pulled in the box during a corner.

I thought we played well through out although we caused more problems during the first half. Going in 0-1 was very much against the run of play. We, and the crowd, seemed a little more muted in the second half.

Once we threw on Rantie, Fraser and Pitman it suggested we were going to throw the kitchen sink at the Scousers but after lots of great build up we failed to get a shot at goal or people in the box when the ball was finally whipped in.

All in all, a good performance and we didn't embarass ourselves. We can hold our heads up high going into Tuesday's game against Huddersfield. Has that sold out yet?

A fine display from our players, you can't fault them for their effort, drive and skill, but that same old weakness in front of goal once again was our downfall. Pitman's equisite skill and dertimination epitomized it all, when he shrugged off a challenge, beat three player to make an opening and blasted the ball high and wide. But an entertaining game and a lesson in how to finish! Now ,let's make our League position safe.

I would not worry SOC, EH will sort it. Another super striker on his way to add more firepower, and possibly another goalkeeper to help keep clean sheets. In between all safe with solid defence and flowing midfield.

canfordcherry says...

If some of the chances in the first half had gone in it would have been a different story. The quality blocking by the L/pool defence 3 or 4 times shows the difference in class. Overall I thought we gave a good account of ourselves. O'kane was quality again, hope the scouts present were asleep as we need to keep him! Frazer didn't look as good against Premier players, but he is still young and learning.
Did anyone notice the Scouser steal a ball in the pre-match warm up? L/pool shot past the post into the crowd and one picked it up, the old behind the back to someone else happened 3 times and then the last one had it in his coat and up in the stands where he was sitting leaving Jones asking the original guy for the ball back. Expert timing and not the first time they've done it I would think! They even steal off of their own club, typical.

Don't even bother replying to oxbig.
Liverpool couldn't get the ball off us first half. We dominated a team full of world class players and it's not that easy to create chances against world class defenders but we managed a few.
We kept Suarez very quiet and apart from the lob, did he have a decent chance?
Oxbig, you should maybe criticise him not our players who earn a fraction of what they earn.

Did you not get the feeling that Liverpool were almost toying with us though, and they could have stepped it up a gear if required? Maybe they did this under Rodgers instruction so as not to be blown out on Tuesday night and would have stepped on the gas if needed? 3 shots on target.

Not one crunching tackle because liverpool struggled to get the ball of us and we didn't to make many tackles. When required we blocked shots from Suarez etc.

I think we are 90% of the way towards being an extremely good team. Eddie needs to solve one or two minor puzzles to increase the number of clear cut chances in the penalty box but when you play pure football like we do at this level the end product is always the toughest thing to produce no matter what strikers you have.

I thourougly enjoyed watching Bournemouth today. I was surprised that we went at it from the start, placing Liverpool onto their back foot. We were as silky smooth and created some nice touches as the Liverpool and we clearly worried them until their opening goal. We showed, well class actually!

So pleased to see the lads enjoying the tie and not worrying about any criticism from fans – that have supported the club through thick and thin. Fan and player enjoyed the fixture. We went away feeling that the team held their own. Acknowledging that each player made a fitting contribution to this FA tie. Steve Gerrard, Sturridge and Suerrez remained on the pitch, respect I felt that Brendan Rodgers (knowing he had am important FA match to win wanted to make it so) – despite the Everton/Liverpool fixture next week.

We have come so far now and I realise that we are all entitled to opinion but we were playing one of the strongest teams in the Premiership and we still remained up for it to the end of the ref's whistle. I didn't see anything today that should trouble anyone regarding our remaining in the Championship. The fact is one of our strikers, soon we know, will have to start to hit the net more regularly this season, I am certain that will happen so why aren't some others posting on here?. Patience is a virtue and we deserve after all our short comings over the years to have a bit of that for our team!

I have followed the team for years and know just how low we have been in the past and I have been regularly frustrated and seen underachievement watching time after time the Cherries having a miserable day in the office.

Surely the true fan cannot feel tis was the case today. Well done all of the team and staff, and well done us the fan for enjoying such a marvellous occasion. We all desrved today! I loved it -- knowing there will be more triumphs to come for this and next season.

Thank you lads for turning up and doing us all proud!

Well done, the Cherries! We played so well, and often ran rings around the Liverpool players. We were so positive, and every player gave 100%. The score line, in the end, didn't really reflect the game, or what we deserved. And that penalty that we should have been given may have turned the result around!. It was great to watch it live on tv, where all the commentators (especially Harry R!) praised how we played. A performance to be proud of :)! x

So losing 2 nill at home to a team only one division above us, 3 wins in 14 league matches, a distinct lack of goals scored in open play and the second worst defensive record in the league is of no concern to you as long a we are playing 'attractive' football?

Right on both counts actually. Fact.
If liverpool weren't trying hard then they should all be dropped as any manager woul not accept that. As redknapp,keane and Dixon stated we were the better team.

Fact? From where? Look at the BBC football website, who I think would disagree with you. Players would not be dropped by any manager who instructed them to 'hold back' a little. They could have beaten us with much greater ease than they made it look today, I have no question of that. Liverpools' priority is to finish on the top 4 in the Premier League. The first obstacle in achieving that is by beating their Merseyside rivals on Tuesday evening. It seems that football is your heroin and Dean Court is your dealer. Try to sober up and take a look at the broader picture, baby.

Steve Gerrard, Sturridge and Suerrez remained on the pitch, respect I felt that Brendan Rodgers (knowing he had am important FA match to win wanted to make it so) – despite the Everton/Liverpool fixture next week.

We have come so far now and I realise that we are all entitled to opinion but we were playing one of the strongest teams in the Premiership and we still remained up for it to the end of the ref's whistle. I didn't see anything today that should trouble anyone regarding our remaining in the Championship. The fact is one of our strikers, soon we know, will have to start to hit the net more regularly this season, I am certain that will happen so why aren't some others posting on here?. Patience is a virtue and we deserve after all our short comings over the years to have a bit of that for our team!

I have followed the team for years and know just how low we have been in the past and I have been regularly frustrated and seen underachievement watching time after time the Cherries having a miserable day in the office.

Surely the true fan cannot feel tis was the case today. Well done all of the team and staff, and well done us the fan for enjoying such a marvellous occasion. We all desrved today! I loved it -- knowing there will be more triumphs to come for this and next season.

Thank you lads for turning up and doing us all proud!
So losing 2 nill at home to a team only one division above us, 3 wins in 14 league matches, a distinct lack of goals scored in open play and the second worst defensive record in the league is of no concern to you as long a we are playing 'attractive' football? Are you crazy? I'd rather play unattractive football and be a success.

Well I had a good day out! Sorry about that!
I have to say that there is a huge world of difference playing in the Premiership level and the rest including our own. Today I didn't see it except in the finishing. Others more eloquent have explained that we have to spend large to replace the front line. So rather than moan and belittle I would rather praise our players and then get behind them on Tuesday and watch them getting the points and keeping the performances at a high level. You see it's not just the entertainment business. It's football. To end let m quote the legend that we all would have loved to have seen today. Bill Shankly.

"Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very
disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more
important than that."

I believe that Eddie and the boys were a credit to Bournemouth today. The true fan was NOT disappointed! We are still learning and I believe we are on the up!

I have received the following communication from our dear friend SMHINTO whereby he says:

Having now had the time to watch the recorded live match against Liverpool at Dean Court yesterday can I please say that whilst my view about the lack of fire power upfront remains the same, as does for many of you, my past posts commenting on the team’s ability, I can now categorically say that were completely and utterly unfounded. I can now see why so many of you gave me the thumbs down and I would like to apologise for even contemplating the suggestion that Mike Oxbog’s agreeing with me should have ever been entertained by me.
He also stated that he has accepted my apology for calling him an ‘oversized frog’ and from now on he will never refer to us as empty heads, idiots, cigarette packets, numpties and so on. In return he would like some thumbs up.

Why o why did we buy Rantie - powder puff ! I am concerned that Matt was left unmarked yet received little in the way of passes - he has such a vision yet you can sense he is fast becoming fed up, also Arter had yet another off day - quiet and didn`t seem to contribute a lot .

If we can get a decent forward from"somewhere" we can surely climb the table, approach work and skills of the team are certainly good, its just the end product( unwilling to even shoot now ) that is missing.

Yesterday was a great day. We were superb and LFC knew they were in a game. But for a useless linesman (aren't they all) it might have been so different.
Now back to reality. We still need a big striker, not a target man but someone on the end of the many crosses from our army of wingers. Brendon Rogers' gracious comments were relevant and welcome but the ball is simply not hitting the net often enough to guarantee survival and IMO Eddie needs to act.

Lovely game to watch.
We were naive again, just playing down the flanks with our one touch football.
Very easy for other teams to contain us, just waiting to score there goals.
Like Shminto says on we go one down we have a problem, and cant change our way of playing. We need to be more direct sometimes but we find it easier going down the wings. Playing only one up front doesnt get us anywhere as the ball is usually knocked wide to grabban who holds the ball up, untill we push up and there defence gets organised.
Hope Howe sees these problems,as its clear for all to see.

We were absolutely brilliant. I thought apart from the goals we more than matched a world class team. Right from kick off our lads ran at them took them on and outclassed them in certain areas. I thought everyone of our players looked every bit as good as Steven Gerrard. The 2 goal scorers for Liverpool were the only ones who we couldn't handle. The team was so organized, the way they kept their line and position and ran all over the pitch not allowing Liverpool to control the game was incredible. Great for the players to know they can play well against world class players. Credit to Howe and the lads for a brilliant game. I can see premiership clubs coming in for O'kane now, he never puts a foot wrong and wasn't at all phased by playing against the best in the world.

Your right when you say it was close, we were by far the better side and should be disappointed that we did not get a replay at the very least, why you ask do people keep on about our finishing is a very simple question to answer, we play lovely attacking football with great possession but ultimately the objective of the game is get then ball in the goal and that is something we ain't very good at, we have no problem creating chances and getting the ball in the area but sticking it in the net is a huge problem, how many times especially at dean court this season have we all said, " we played really well today and if we could take our chances we would of won " or words similar. Yesterday's game was all about the finishing and nothing else, we were the better side and couldn't finish and Liverpool took a couple of there chances. So I think it is plainly obvious why fans keep on about our lack of finishing and firepower.

I can't see us scoring on Tuesday, but I don't think we will get relegated. Maybe the revenue created by the sale of O'Kane coud go towards bringing in a centre forward and cover for Francis, which would hopefully make him pick up his game and stop ball watching. Get Rantie out on loan too. The less said about him the better.

Would have liked to see Pitman on eariier. He does have the ability to pull something out. Eddie must still be in denial about Rante. Trouble is no one will take him off our hands. The fee we paid is a write off.

No one seems to have spotted Camp's poor position for the 1st goal. That and the obvious penalty could have seen us in front. Then we would have had a game on !

Down to earth and I remain concerned about our ability to stay in this league, especially if O'Kane goes. He was outstanding. And no sign of the striker we deperately need.

and commented on..Linesman said off side which could well have been a goal for them....Liverpool did just enough to win..
Of course they did enough to win cos they scored two goals and we scored none!!!!
" just enough to win" In other words, they were cruising....,I don't care as long as we beat Huddersfield..

I think you're being harsh on Camp. Moses hit the ball early and it came through Ritchie's legs with Francis being in Camp's line of vision.

More like not having the rub of the green.

I have received the following communication from our dear friend SMHINTO whereby he says:

Having now had the time to watch the recorded live match against Liverpool at Dean Court yesterday can I please say that whilst my view about the lack of fire power upfront remains the same, as does for many of you, my past posts commenting on the team’s ability, I can now categorically say that were completely and utterly unfounded. I can now see why so many of you gave me the thumbs down and I would like to apologise for even contemplating the suggestion that Mike Oxbog’s agreeing with me should have ever been entertained by me.
He also stated that he has accepted my apology for calling him an ‘oversized frog’ and from now on he will never refer to us as empty heads, idiots, cigarette packets, numpties and so on. In return he would like some thumbs up.

Kind regards to all
SHMINTO

Now isn’t that kind of him!!
SHMINTO it is all a bit of fun at your expense don't blow a fuse!!!
should change your name to nobbogeppetto
So I take it that there will be no more Christmas from you than! I thought it was spelt with a 'K' but to heck with it what i is a 'K' amongst friends!

If you go enjoy the game on Tuesday night

I know it's going over old ground but listening to people outside the stadium asking stewards where to go cos they didn't know what stand they were supposed to be in and almost wetting themselves when the Liverpool coach turned up was a bit gauling when we all know regulars that didn't get a ticket but no doubt they will all be back on Tuesday for the bigger game!!!

I am back by popular demand.

Decisions always go in favour of the established Premier sides when it comes to penalties.

Observation. Seems in the space of 7 days shirt pulling is now no longer a penalty or sending off.

Back to the league - to those talking of a relegation battle - behave. The teams that will be in the relegation battle are those that cannot compete. The Cherries are doing OK - just not setting the world alight. Remember 5 years ago Conference football against Hayes & Yeading was possible.
