AFC Bournemouth: Boss Eddie Howe urges fans to deliver big atmosphere in high-stakes Reading clash

RALLYING CALL: Eddie Howe

RALLYING CALL: Eddie Howe

BOSS Eddie Howe has challenged the Dean Court faithful to raise the roof as Cherries aim to take a giant step towards the Championship play-offs this evening (7.45pm).

On a run of seven victories in nine games, Cherries could cut to just two points the gap on sixth- placed Reading with victory over the Royals – and Howe stressed that the home fans have a crucial role to play.

The manager was thrilled by the atmosphere created by more than 11,300 supporters in the 2-1 victory over high-flying QPR on Saturday and believes that similar noise levels could spur Cherries on to another three points.

He told the Daily Echo: “It was as good an atmosphere as I can remember and that stays with me. When the final whistle went it was just great to be there, to feel it and to hear it.

“When we went down to 10 men we really needed them and I felt they played a big part in the win. The crowd knew the importance of the game and to get another three points was really big for us.

“It’s difficult to ask the crowd to be like that if you don’t perform very well, so we know we have a duty to set the standards and, hopefully, if they can see 100 per cent effort and a team really fighting for another three points, they will get behind us again.”

Howe has always had a liking for evening games at Dean Court and that affection can only have been increased by Cherries’ unblemished winning record in midweek home fixtures in 2013-14.

A 4-1 thrashing of Leeds a fortnight ago was one of the season’s memorable evenings and Howe is keen to add another special win to Cherries’ campaign.

He continued: “As a player I always enjoyed the midweek games and as a manager my thoughts haven’t changed.

“The crowd always get behind the team, the pitch is suited to the night games because the surface gets a bit more juice to it and there’s just a really good feeling about the ground.

“Hopefully it will be another good occasion.”

Very much looking forward to tonight, it seems that every game just gets bigger and bigger with more at stake as we progress through the season and progress we have done. Should it all end tonight we still have better than 12th place to play for, more goals for Grabbs to play for and our reputation for next season to play for.

I'm more than happy to support the boys with some NOISE in appreciation for the great season they have given us so far and hope the silent majority at DC feel the same! Bring on another 3 points Cherries and let's make those 'big' teams fear us and the biased football media show us a bit more respect!

We may not have the biggest of stadiums in the league, but when the Barmy Army are in full voice it can certainly be intimidating for the opposition. Lets give Reading a right ROYAL welcome and send them packing back to Berks, wondering what just hit em.

Come on you mighty reds.!!!

We need to be LOUD and PROUD for our fantastic team tonight!! I am happy to wake up tomorrow with a croaky voice. The WHOLE ground needs to raise the noise and get behind the boys.

Also, regardless of the result can everyone please stay in there seats until the very end, rather than leaving with 10 minutes to go, as it is really annoying.

Come on YOU REDS!!"

We've seen many times that a North Stand in full voice can be a force to be reckoned with. I'm sure Reading will make a racket in reply (surely they don't on their hands away as well as at home?).

I can’t make it tonight because of the wrong shift but can I wish everyone who is able to go this evening a fantastic evening with the right result. Just reading the above posts allows me to imagine the sort of atmosphere that could be created, so cheer the boys to another three points and that will give me a reason to look forward to Forest at home. Good Luck to all connected with our fantastic club.

In my opinion we have lost something as regards the ability to build a really big atmosphere since they did away with terracing.
That old South End was intimidating to any team I can assure you.
The problem is, is that there are too many non singing people in the areas where they should be singing.

I am not saying bring back the bad old days, it simply just was noisier and had more atmosphere.(fact) and we need to find some way of bringing that back to Dean Court.
To be fair the whole bloody ground should sing but we know that traditionally it is the Kop end or behind the goal stand that does the business.
We still can make a very big noise and build a superb atmosphere in that stadium and we need one tonight, so sing your hearts out for the lads.

I was there that game, it was fantastic on the way there and the way back. Every game was a cup final and everyone went to away games, drunk as skunks and singing our heads off, good times.

I love the celery song, bring it back.

And sweet Molly Malone, that is and was a classic.

I'm here to stand up for the main stand. Or the hot stand or c2o sand or whatever it's supposedly called these days.

I sit in the wheelchair area (so can't actually stand up for the stand so to speak) just between the benches & the North Stand. I love hearing the roar from the N.S. We take our lead from there & a few of us do everything we can to get the rest going. Sometimes it works & sometimes it doesn't. Hopefully tonight it will.

I'll second Coops' encouragement to you Tintin. Let's hear it belting out from ALL blocks and stands apart from the away section. It's all good aerobic excercise too, I was well exhausted towards the end of the L**ds game, sure I would've been less knackered if I'd been playing up alongside Franno that night!!!

Great to know I'll be in good company tonight (apart from those blue&white t0ssers!) and can't wait. Favourite song? Everywhere we go-oh!

Nice one Ted, lets have some noise tonight and really get behind the boys because I can assure you that they do appreciate it and it does spur them on.

No excuses tonight people lets have a noisy night and raise the roof.

There is an old battle cry that goes" when a nation fights then the whole nation should fight"

So," when Dean Court sings the whole crowd should sing"

Unfortunately I will be stuck at my desk until about 7 o'clock but will be at the ground in plenty of time to get charged up for the game.

We need to attack Reading from the word go they are a defensive team who will sit back and try to get us on the break we need the crowd behind the team the whole game especially if we are struggling we also need some more noise from the south stand every time i go in there all you can hear is the away fans very few are singing in that end you need to make some noise not just sit there!!

Nice one Ted, lets have some noise tonight and really get behind the boys because I can assure you that they do appreciate it and it does spur them on.

No excuses tonight people lets have a noisy night and raise the roof.

There is an old battle cry that goes" when a nation fights then the whole nation should fight"

So," when Dean Court sings the whole crowd should sing"

Unfortunately I will be stuck at my desk until about 7 o'clock but will be at the ground in plenty of time to get charged up for the game.

U T C I A D.
Went to the ground this morning. Temporary traffic lights in place at the Queens Park pub. I was told at the ground they would still be there tonight. If so, the delays that were there this morning will be nothing compared to those tonight. Start out early in case. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Looking forward to Reading's cup final tonight. Cracking atmosphere against QPR saturday, especially when we went down to 10 men. We definately need to generate that noise level again tonight to help see the boys through. It's been many moons since i stood on The South Stand with my mates singing at the top of voice,( even led a rendition of "Sunny,Sunny Bournemouth" once at Swindle), but have quitened down now i'm in middle age and sat it in the relative tranquility of The East Stand,apart from the obvious of shouting at the referee and telling our players what's about even though they can't hear me, but even i was up on my feet against Rangers singing along with The North Stand as were a lot of others around me so more of the same tonight and those 3 points are nailed on! And, if for some reason it does go wrong,( cheating ref, cheating Reading), the team should still get rapturous support for the whole seasons efforts thus far. Who would've thought, it was all about survival at the start now we could find ourselves 2 points away from the play offs!

Must win tonight boys! Win to go 2 points behind Reading occupying 6th place, a draw wouldn't be the end of the world, still 5 points off but teams above would have much bigger advantage. Lose tonight and 8 points is too big a challenge to recoup. I would love a trip to Wembley but to lose, we're not ready financially or with stadium facilities/capacity for the premiership. Plus, we don't have Mitchell to knock out an extra tier or two in the stands ;) Need minimum 18,000 seater for the Premiership.
