AFC Bournemouth: Controversy as Cherries go down to Championship leaders (WITH VIDEO)

Bournemouth Echo: FOX IN THE BOX: Kevin Phillips FOX IN THE BOX: Kevin Phillips

KEVIN Phillips came off the bench to grab a hotly-disputed winner as Cherries were edged out by Championship leaders Leicester City at Dean Court today.

Phillips netted the only goal of an absorbing contest 10 minutes from time, although Cherries were convinced his header had not crossed the line.

However, referee Darren Drysdale, who had an afternoon to forget, deemed the effort should stand after his assistant on the Main Stand touchline had flagged for a goal.

Transfer window signings Adam Smith and Yann Kermorgant were both named among the Cherries substitutes as boss Eddie Howe made three changes to his starting line-up.

Ian Harte replaced the injured Charlie Daniels, while Ryan Fraser and Tokelo Rantie came in for Matt Ritchie, who dropped to the bench, and Marc Pugh, who was rested.

Andrew Surman’s long-range effort after five minutes sailed over the crossbar before referee Darren Drysdale waved away Cherries’ claims for a penalty after Rantie had gone to ground.

Cherries stood firm as Leicester forced a couple of early corners, while Lee Camp stretched to gather a header from Marcin Wasilewski after the big defender had met a cross from Anthony Knockaert.

The Cherries goalkeeper saved superbly from Lloyd Dyer, with Camp parrying his strike after Jamie Vardy’s deep centre had found the winger at the far post in the 18th minute.

And Camp again distinguished himself after Vardy had been sent clear by Danny Drinkwater’s incisive pass, the stopper pushing the striker’s effort on to the top of the crossbar.

Camp saved comfortably after Vardy had tried his luck from distance before Kasper Schmeichel raced off his line to beat Rantie to Eunan O’Kane’s through ball.

Schmeichel snaffled Lewis Grabban’s strike midway through the first half before Camp again came to Cherries’ rescue when he managed to divert Vardy’s flicked effort away from goal after the striker had gone clear for second time.

Tommy Elphick climbed at the far post to meet Harte’s probing free kick, only to see his header flash past the post, before Harry Arter’s brave challenge on David Nugent prevented the striker taking aim as a cagey opening period drew to a close.

A double substitution by Cherries at the break saw Fraser and Rantie replaced by Ritchie and Kermorgant with Ritchie seeing an effort charged down early in the second half.

Knockaert lifted a free kick over the crossbar after Elliott Ward had been harshly judged to have checked Vardy, the defender also picking up a booking.

Arter’s superb tackle on Drinkwater created an opening for Grabban but, after letting fly from 25 yards, he saw his thunderous drive flash narrowly past the post.

Camp made another wonderful save to push away Knockaert’s header from close range before referee Drysdale opted against punishing Matty James for a strong challenge which left Arter grounded.

Ritchie’s venomous strike was blocked by Wasilewski, the Polish international having previously been booked for a poor challenge on Kermorgant.

Leicester opened the scoring in controversial circumstances when substitute Phillips headed home Knockaert’s cross, with Cherries claiming the ball had not crossed the line. Despite their protestations, with Camp booked for his complaints, the goal stood.

Cherries: Camp, Francis, Ward, Elphick, Harte, O’Kane, Grabban, Arter, Surman (Pitman, 83), Fraser (Ritchie, h-t), Rantie (Kermorgant, h-t).

Unused subs: Cook, Smith, MacDonald, Allsop (g/k).

Booked: Ward, Arter, Camp.

We were robbed today , we were the better team today ' I thought rantie actually had a good game today , but people on here must admit we looked a much better side when the 2 subs came on . Even mr golfer will have to say that our new striker is a different level than rantie and Pittman . He has got ball control lays the ball off very well and is aware where other players are . All the attributes that rantie and Pittman don't have ...

A fairly even match, but we would have been at least 2 down at half time if it wasn't for the heroics of Camp We looked much more balanced in the second half once Ritchie and Yann came on. We played well today, but were beaten by a better team. I have no problem with that. Regards.

Normally he is on Leicester City squad refereeing is only a part-time occupation. I thought elbowing an opponent was a red card offense I would have preferred to have lost 0-4 with a straight ref than 0-1 with that clown in charge. Best forgotten

Is it possibly someone was paying this ref to ensure LC got the result they wanted? Or can a ref at this level really be that bad?
Whatever the reason he should NEVER EVER ref a professional game again.

Agree totally with you this time Oxbig, Camp was outstanding today, was hoping that as we went up the leagues the ref standards would improve but alas no, Leicester will win the league I think, a solid team who are strong. Liked the look of Yann.

Certainly the ref wasn't the best but Leicester were too good Camp man of the match says it all really KS in the LEICESTER goal didn't make a save we defended well but Grabban our leading scorer nowhere to be seen. Most impressed with new signing better days ahead me thinks

We are certainly mixing it with the top sides and on a better day could have got the points.Grabban doesn't look as good when he is sharing the front line and I wonder if Kermogant and Rantie might be a good partnership up front O Kane and Camp were excellent today.

Top of the league ? you`re aving a laugh, it is surprising at times just how tiny the difference is between the majority of teams in this division.

Referee was awful I hope some one puts in a complaint re his standard of decisions - for us to have won a penalty I expect one of their players would of needed to commit murder.

Our play in the second half looked promising with Kermit and Ritchie on the pitch , things can only get better.

What an arrogant jumped up 'big head' is Mr kasper Smichael, ? He should look at Huddersfields keeper Alex Smithies ,as to how you should conduct yourself on the Pitch, Smithies had to be admired after clapping us when his team lost on Tuesday ( cherries 2, huddersfield 1). It was a super game to watch today , neither team deserved to lose, but you cannot beat the referee, the man gave us one(1) free kick the whole match? I don't mind being beaten by a good footballing team, leicester, won today, but let's be honest , you would never think they we're top of the league? Smichael, will never emulate his Father, ???

Apart from the elbow, which was a strange decision as it should of been a straight red, what else did the ref get wrong? The one on the half way line involving Arter was a clear free kick to Leicester, it sounds like the ball crossed the line for the goal which although I'm in the North stand the Lino gave it straight away and the fans in the main stand behind him weren't complaining, I've either got a terrible memory but I can't remember any other big decisions he got wrong, please tell me !!!!

Not a goal, just seen it again on sky and there were two defenders in the way of the linesman. if not sure you can't give. A draw would have been a fair result.

We were excellent and deserved draw against this Premiership To Be club. Yann Kermorgant looked good, my friend at Charlton says - he will run and put his body in all over the place. He is strong and will win you lots of free kicks, he is deadly with free kicks and can score sensational goals but as a target man I don't rate him, he seems unable to play with another striker. If he wins a header it's impossible to judge where it will go. Could be wrong, it has been known, but I don't think he will suit your style. A very, very hard worker though.

The Cherries played against 15 today , 11 Leicester + 3 officials. The ref today was apalling booking Arter and Ward on a yellow but let's far worse from Leicester go unpunished like James clear foul on Arter,not only NOT giving James at least a yellow card but NOTeven gving a foul but a throw in to Leicester (?) !!!!. Then the disputed goal that the AFCB players clearly thought that the whole of the ball had NOT crossed the line. Because we obviously felt agrieved enough to dispute his decision he books Lee Camp on a yellow for arguing. !!!.
We didn't perhaps deseve to win today but we did deserve a draw but that the way things go for you when you are top of the league and on an 8 game winning streak.
Lee Camp was superb today making 3 or 4 top class saves and a candidate for MOM. Also Yann Kermorgant showed enough to suggest when he has trained with the squad and settles in, what a good player he will be.

Tough game today and despite result, most of the teams around us lost or drew, so we are still in 14th spot on 34 pts and nobody gained too much on us. Onwards and hopefully upwards in the weeks ahead. UTC.

my son-in-law (a Millwall supporter) was there with us today he has no axe to grind however he thought the ref was extremely poor today.

If Leicester has to depend on poor refereeing decisions going their way I much rather support AFCB and their humble achievement. He booked three of our players and one of Leicester. Anyway enough moaning we have a good and strong player now to help us consolidate our position in the Championship and that is all that matters to me. Looking forward to next home game with Burnley. Have they got referees on their books!!!!!!

Bournemouth done themselves proud today, we were up against the leaders and these leaders are the best team that have visited DC for a while. The fact that Camp was MotM tells the storey, how many saves did Casper make? The bigger clubs gets the treatment from officials- fact and that happened today , Rantie worked well but didn't really looked like scoring, there are no points for possession or passing so hopefully our second half team will be our starting line up in future subject to injuries, it seems that Leicester done there home work on Arter and it nearly worked ( by getting sent off)

I sit in the main stand in line with the touchline and the whole of the ball didn't cross the line. Ref had a stinker.Yann looks promising and Jim Carey was in the away stand giving it large. Stewards were also not doing their jobs today. There were half a dozen Leicester fans in the south stand celebrating after the goal that never was. We were shouting at the stewards to kick them out but they chose to ignore us and wandered off below the stands.must have been tea break time.

We didn't perhaps deseve to win today but we did deserve a draw but that the way things go for you when you are top of the league and on an 8 game winning streak.
Lee Camp was superb today making 3 or 4 top class saves and a candidate for MOM. Also Yann Kermorgant showed enough to suggest when he has trained with the squad and settles in, what a good player he will be.

Tough game today and despite result, most of the teams around us lost or drew, so we are still in 14th spot on 34 pts and nobody gained too much on us. Onwards and hopefully upwards in the weeks ahead. UTC.

Let's clear our heads a bit. The linesman gave the goal and the ref has to believe him, the foul on Arter near the dug out was 100% clean! two players attacked the ball at the same time but Arter came off worse being weaker I guess, another challenge about ten minutes prior to this when the ball trickled out for a goal kick, another correct decision as Arter got the last touch,
The referee was indeed onesided today but got heckled also on these three occasions when he got them spot on

there can be no doubt we have made big strides at one stage of the season we would have lost by a much bigger margin, but it has to be said that although the defence has tightened it is to the detriment of the attack, we now have 3 centram midfielders who seem to think it is their job to be the holding player, as a result no on gets forward in support, I think the manager needs to be a little braver in his team selection one shot on target and is clearly not good enough, agame against the top side and Ritchie on the bench and Pugh rested also the 2 new signings brought in to improve the side on the bench, you may have good reasons Eddie bit looks too much safety first

On a positive note, from what I did see the gap between the two teams was much narrower than when we played them at filbert st.

I was in the south stand and couldn't be sure the ball had crossed the line so goodness knows how the lino could give it with Ward sliding. Also,a lot of Leicester fans in with us. Mostly good natured but could have turned nasty after the goal. Whole group in Spidermen outfit in our row so not hard to spot! Tip: If you're an away fan sitting where you shouldn't be don't crow when you get a disputed goal.

Am i the only one that isn't really very excited by Kermogant? Today showed he's good at what he does, winning headers and holding up the ball, but in just one half of football he turned us into a long ball side....

Last 10 minutes especially, we stuck Kermogant, Ward, Pitman up front and just clipped balls in constantly, and looked like we didn't know what to do. That's not how we play...

Don't get me wrong, I think Kermogant is a great player and a great signing, but god i hope we don't change our system to suit him. As soon as he was on the pitch, Francis and Harte couldn't resist the temptation to hit him at every opportunity. I really hope Eddie gets the best out of him without changing the profile of the rest of the team.

At least he isn't easily shrugged off the ball all the time .. He will be a very good asset to the team . In other words he isnt a lightweight like some I could name ,,

The crowd figure was 10,700
The sell out crowd v liverpool was 11,700 so where were the 1000 empty seats today and how can it be a sell out?
This is not the first time this season I've been scratching my head trying to fathom where the empty seats are when crowd figure is announced.
This must be a tax fiddle surely.??

The 3 officials did make some poor decisions today.

On the Arter foul though, their player won the ball cleanly. It would help us if Harry would stop faking injury and keep the game flowing. He clearly wasn't injured. He does it a lot.

Like the look of Kermit, great addition to the squad.

Totally agree re; Arter tackle, ref got it right-no foul. Harry has a habit of playing his leg through the ball when ever a player tackles him in this way to give the effect that the opposing player has taken him late, or even maliciously, when it isn't always the case.
The goal was in (in my view) I sit just behind the goal line in the family stand and you could see the whole ball past the post.
The only mistake the ref made was with the elbow, if he gives the free kick then surely he's seen the cause?
Good quality attacking opposition today could only get the one goal. Glad they are out of the way, role on next home game things can only get easier!
Oh wait a minute its Ings and Vokes next. If we can limit hem to 1 it would be a result!

Starting to look good and be consistent right across the Park.
I think Rantie should of come on for the final 30mins and run the defenders ragged and not started.but this team is a top 6 team in waiting if we are comparing us to a team that is 10 points clear at the top of the championship
and maybe not this year but certainly next year.

We played well, especially Camp, however we were beaten by a better side who should have been 2 up at h-t. Despite missing two good chances Vardy showed real quality. EH made two poor decisions starting with Rantie and Fraser, and had no option but to correct these at h-t. Kermorgant had an instant impact putting himself about, winning headers, cheating it to our players and showing good skills on the deck - he is going to improve us massively going forward. Having seen the 'goal' on tv it appears to be a goal. We nearly hung on for a point, but lets remember we didn't have one shot on target, so we can't be too disappointed. Onwards and upwards, UTCIAD

Totally agree with you , yann looks a really good signing . I hate to say it but I think we should start playing smith now . I think he has got more ball skill than Francis , and he can get a few goals . Saying that tho I am a big fan of Francis .... Also I must say 400 thousand for a player that has an instant effect on the team . Is a very good purchase . When you compare 2.5 million for another player .

Just seen the goal on tv and it was clearly over the line, how the Lino saw it though with Elliot Ward sliding in I don't know, must of been guessing a bit which ain't on, but as much as I hate to say it he got it right, well played Lee Camp if it wasn't for him it could of been 4-0 which considering we played well would of been hard to take but as we are hardly any threat at all up front we are going to struggle to win games, let's hope Yann is the answer as he looked promising yesterday

The sell out crowd v liverpool was 11,700 so where were the 1000 empty seats today and how can it be a sell out?
This is not the first time this season I've been scratching my head trying to fathom where the empty seats are when crowd figure is announced.
This must be a tax fiddle surely.??
Perhaps as there were only 1.345 away fans in a 2.000 seat stand there is nearly 700 to account for but i often wonder were the figures come from,and the club never says.

Totally agree with you , yann looks a really good signing . I hate to say it but I think we should start playing smith now . I think he has got more ball skill than Francis , and he can get a few goals . Saying that tho I am a big fan of Francis .... Also I must say 400 thousand for a player that has an instant effect on the team . Is a very good purchase . When you compare 2.5 million for another player .
How can you say smith has more ball skill,if you have not seen him play.

I assume from your name that you sit in the East Stand. yet you had a clear view of the Arter foul that was right in front of the South Stand ,ever thought of being a linesman!. By the way it was foot raised with studs showing did you see Eddie & Jason's reaction. As for the elbow, Andy Carrol was sent off for a far less serious elbow but our referee and the linesman with x ray vision did not see a thing. Good ref I think not.

Thanks Nonno for trying to save "my bacon" but it was an elementary mistake on my part saying 11 +3 was14 , however in my defence I had just been watching the highlights of England lose to France in the 6 Nations Rugby and they of course play with 15 LOL !!!.
Having seen the goal on TV at normal speed it looked over but in slow mo I'm not so sure and how the lino.could see with the post and Ward in his line of vision, I question??.
It's all irrevalent now anyway and as I pointed out not too much damage done by the teams around us and a point was the only likely outcome for The Cherries dare I say ??.
Kermogant will give us a different option in attack and once he has a chance to train with the team and work on some tactics,I think we will see the best of him. UTC.

Certain stewards and old Bill were not doing their jobs yesterday. Away fans gobbling off in the home end is out of order. Also, one of them in the main stand lets people go out for a cigarette at halftime for a fiver. That's two games now I've seen him do it. Come on MJ, I know you read this, sort your boys out

Which Arter tackle are you talking about, the one given against Arter was near the half way line in front of the dug outs by the main stand

No you're wrong. The away section holds 1400 odd.
The south stand holds 2000 which is why liverpool had that stand due to fa rules in the cup with percentage of ground having to be available for away fans. The away end v leicester was full, a was the south stand v liverpool. There is apparently 300 seats we lose to segregation in a league game in the east stand, According to mostyn so there should be 700 added to the sell out crowd v leicester. Should be 11400.

The Leicster fans should not have been in there, wheather causing trouble or not. There was a bit outside the ground, a few punches thrown tec. Old bill are useless and so are the stewards, if it did really kick off they would not be able to control it well outnumbered. Roll on leeds, QPR and Forest.

The 3 officials did make some poor decisions today. On the Arter foul though, their player won the ball cleanly. It would help us if Harry would stop faking injury and keep the game flowing. He clearly wasn't injured. He does it a lot. Like the look of Kermit, great addition to the squad.
I assume from your name that you sit in the East Stand. yet you had a clear view of the Arter foul that was right in front of the South Stand ,ever thought of being a linesman!. By the way it was foot raised with studs showing did you see Eddie & Jason's reaction. As for the elbow, Andy Carrol was sent off for a far less serious elbow but our referee and the linesman with x ray vision did not see a thing. Good ref I think not.
Arter went down 3 times in the match, one right in front of me. I still think he was acting. Sorry.

The elbow was a foul, possible straight red, again the challenge in front of the dugout w&sstevewebs ok, I clearly heard the mouse of the ball being attacked rather than someone's shin pad as Arter indicated

Well done referee, winning 1-0... Oh sorry, you weren't the opposing team, it just felt like it!!! You were DREADFUL!!
Normally he is on Leicester City squad refereeing is only a part-time occupation. I thought elbowing an opponent was a red card offense I would have preferred to have lost 0-4 with a straight ref than 0-1 with that clown in charge. Best forgotten
Apart from the elbow, which was a strange decision as it should of been a straight red, what else did the ref get wrong? The one on the half way line involving Arter was a clear free kick to Leicester, it sounds like the ball crossed the line for the goal which although I'm in the North stand the Lino gave it straight away and the fans in the main stand behind him weren't complaining, I've either got a terrible memory but I can't remember any other big decisions he got wrong, please tell me !!!!
Fans behind the linesman were compalining?????????
?????

Yes we were!!!!!!

I'm also quite amused by the fact that kevin Phillips claimed the ball was over the line by 2 inches and the linesman saw that at 25 yards, yet he missed a defender putting his arm over Rantie's shoulder and pulling his shirt three yards in front of him.

Also he was often yards behind the play and missed a clear off side that nearly gave them a second goal.

And as for the Arter incident and several other elbow incidents, well it just highloghts how inconsistant this ref was in his decision making. It's guys like this that make you want to agree with Moyes abou referees being laughable.

We didn't perhaps deseve to win today but we did deserve a draw but that the way things go for you when you are top of the league and on an 8 game winning streak.
Lee Camp was superb today making 3 or 4 top class saves and a candidate for MOM. Also Yann Kermorgant showed enough to suggest when he has trained with the squad and settles in, what a good player he will be.

Tough game today and despite result, most of the teams around us lost or drew, so we are still in 14th spot on 34 pts and nobody gained too much on us. Onwards and hopefully upwards in the weeks ahead. UTC.
'The Cherries played against 15 today , 11 Leicester + 3 officials'.

That'll be 14 then.
Let's clear our heads a bit. The linesman gave the goal and the ref has to believe him, the foul on Arter near the dug out was 100% clean! two players attacked the ball at the same time but Arter came off worse being weaker I guess, another challenge about ten minutes prior to this when the ball trickled out for a goal kick, another correct decision as Arter got the last touch,
The referee was indeed onesided today but got heckled also on these three occasions when he got them spot on
Totally agree re; Arter tackle, ref got it right-no foul. Harry has a habit of playing his leg through the ball when ever a player tackles him in this way to give the effect that the opposing player has taken him late, or even maliciously, when it isn't always the case.
The goal was in (in my view) I sit just behind the goal line in the family stand and you could see the whole ball past the post.
The only mistake the ref made was with the elbow, if he gives the free kick then surely he's seen the cause?
Good quality attacking opposition today could only get the one goal. Glad they are out of the way, role on next home game things can only get easier!
Oh wait a minute its Ings and Vokes next. If we can limit hem to 1 it would be a result!
How can you see the whole ball across the line from the family stand???

That's Block 9, the goal was down at Block 1 i.e the other end of the pitch.

I sit in block 2 and I'm not convinced it crossed the line.
