Dons chairman: No Cherries approach for Robinson

MK DONS chief Pete Winkelman says he is unaware of any official approach from Cherries amid continuing speculation linking Karl Robinson with the Dorset club.

Dons boss Robinson is understood to be high on Cherries’ wish-list to succeed Paul Groves, who was relieved of his duties on Wednesday.

Daily Echo sources last night suggested Cherries could be preparing to seek permission from the Dons to speak to 32-year-old Robinson.

But when contacted by the Echo this afternoon, Dons chairman Winkelman said he did not know about reports claiming Robinson was on Cherries’ managerial radar.

When asked if he knew whether there had been an official approach from Cherries, Winkelman added: “There hasn’t been any official approach from Bournemouth, no. Not that I am aware of.”

Since yesterday, bookmakers have slashed the price on Robinson becoming Cherries’ next manager from 66-1 to 5-1. The highly-decorated coach is in his first spell in management and has guided the Dons to the League One play-offs in the past two seasons.

Appointed in May 2010, Robinson, then aged 29, became the youngest manager in English football. At the time, he replaced Cherries boss Eddie Howe as the youngest in the Football League.

Howe, who was first linked with a sensational return to Dean Court when the Echo reported he was understood to be the club’s preferred choice to replace Groves, remains the odds-on favourite.

The 34-year-old, who had been quoted by the bookmakers as a 4-1 shot for the Cherries job, was last night backed in to odds-on favourite, with Skybet still offering him at 2-5.

Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell today politely declined to comment directly on the Howe and Robinson speculation and also remained tight-lipped when asked if the club had lodged approaches for managers currently in employment.

He told the Daily Echo: “We are doing our due diligence on various candidates and we hope to have someone in place as soon as possible.

“We have got a host of applicants – a real lot of applicants – and they are coming in all the time.”

Meanwhile, Carlisle United boss Greg Abbott has spoken about reports linking him with the vacancy.

“That’s news to me – you’re telling me something that hadn’t even entered my head,” said League One’s longest-serving manager, in an interview with the News & Star.

why would would robinson come here? mk have a great ground average crowds of nearly 9000 and are promotion favourites and backed by a rich chairman we need to get real. i think someone like sean dyce would be a great choice , very popular at watford with fans and players young and ambitious and available! he was a committed player captain and natural leader , he won"t take anyone who is slacking either

My concern is the bad press that is being reported about the club and any manager would have his work cut out,we need someone who can boot the players up the bum and say how things should be done.

We are not going to get a manager from a higher league. Why do people keep dreaming of Hoddle and Curbishley, neither of whom would touch it with a bargepole and they don't know our level either.

I can't see Robinson or Howe wanting to come to AFCB. Both are with much bigger clubs who are in much stronger positions in the league than us. Never going to happen.
My opinion is that all the rumours of top managers coming here is just more Mitchell spin. When all the good managers reject the offer of coming here Mitchell will just appoint the cheap option again in Dennis Rofe and hope for the best. If that happens I'm washing my hands of AFC Bournemouth until the Mitchell Mafia are gone.

Oh how I wish, those of us who were calling for PG to be sacked, would by now be tucking in into a load of humble pie but alas that was not to be. We now move on into an even more uncertain stage of AFCB’s existence not knowing who would apply or would want to work with the Mitchell lot. As a supporter of many years I fear that we may have jumped from the frying pan into the fire. Clearly I don’t think there is an onrush trying to knock down EM’s office door and wish to take us out of the quagmire that we are in. It is a great shame that EM did not see it our way and realised earlier that Groves and Bookes were not the people who could take us forward.

It is only in hope that I say this. Maybe EM will have learned a lesson (impossible I hear some say) and come to his senses and realise that we the supporters are needed just as much as everyone else that makes up the club. I will take this opportunity to thank him for saving me £418 in the first instance and if he wants some of that money he better make the right choice for the next manager because unless things improve and do so quickly he will not see any of that money.

i think david james will get it after what he said after sat game.this is for real. "David James believes his Bournemouth team-mates have the qualities to be one of the best sides in the division.

The Cherries currently sit 21st in the League One table, and have won just one of their 13 games in all competitions, but the former England international goalkeeper says his team-mates are capable of outperforming any team in the division.

But James insists that the Cherries need to improve their defending from set plays.

He told the club's official website: "I think the team are good. None of the teams we have played against have been capable of doing what we are capable of doing when we get it right.

"In training we do some fantastic stuff. We just need to continue doing that, tighten up the set plays and all of a sudden we'll rise up the league.

"We have conceded four goals from set-plays in the last three games and it is something that needs to be worked out." LOL . tom will probably recommend you tomorrow!!

Yeah I know good point, if only EM could use his amazing business like brain and reduce the wage bill down to compensate on paying a good wage for a good manager, like an earlier post stated we are after all only Bournmouth, so why do we need such a large squad , it's not like we re competing in every competition going or travelling across Europe to play games, this philosophy of two players for every position will get them fighting fot their place hasnt worked at all, they all seem lazy and under achievers , theres no guarantee that even EH could motivate this lot

I'm with you on that one. He came over as a winner, very articulate and has an amazing pedigree.

He would be a coup. Trouble is he broadcast a 'come and get me' on national radio.

Sky and skybet and a few local bookies are now all saying EH is favorite for the job. Was also seen locally today near Dean Court. However, his brother does live around the corner from there. Eddie has also kept on his local home. I think Sky must have some inside info. If EH did come back I think he would now have the upper hand and this time be in a position to call the shots.

yeah i agree the squad is far too big. under eddie howe we had far less players and a much more togertherness about the squad,all you need is a squad of about 19 players with 1 or 2 youngsters coming through. if you have injuries you should be able to bring in some players on loan we normally do well in the loan market and these players have to prove themselves unlike players on 3 yr deals. whoever comes in has a tough job with all the players we have.we need to sell or loan a lot out because too many players appears to be breeding unhappiness and easy wages for a lot of them. i think once again mitchell has not listened and gone ott with players we need quality not quantity!

one thing Robinson does is surrounds himself with good staff. Last season he had gorman as assistant, hamman and fowler as coaches. This season he's got harford and Ian wright wright wright with him. Also bringing in good players like Alan smith means he's high contacts also. I don't understand this talk about curbishley. Where has If been for years? What does he know about league 1? What about Gary megson also as another name. Not sure I'd want him but he's been there and done it.

I can tell you that Mitchell has held talks with Howe on two occasions, but we don't know the outcome, and we won't know because BOTH have lied to us in the past, it seem Mitchell has tried on this one though. Don't forgot it isn't just the Manager coming in its also all the back room staff that they want as we'll so I isn't a cheap route to take b any means
Mitchell, is certainly a stranger to the truth as for Eddie Howe, what would you do when, after turning down much better jobs, to stay here, you find that you have been lied to and the Board are to sell off your better players - like him go, I suspect. The majority of the people named as contenders for the Manager's job, would never come here, Eddie Howe included ( whilst Mitchell is here) . Like you I believe that as long as the Mitchell's are in charge the only way the Club is going is down. Indeed I have little doubt that it's all going to end in tears with the Club going into Administration next year. " Football" men, love the game and when in Management want full control of the on field events - and will not brook interference. Can you see that happening here. Like you too am finding it increasingly easy to miss a game at Dean Court and hard to summon up enough enthusiasm to bother to go to a game and whilst I would never say never again! A sad position after more than 60 years as a supporter and a Seaason ticket holder for many years, to be in. But it's no longer the friendly Family Club that I have known for so long.

Cant blame Eddie Mitchell for all of this,no never been a big fan of him myself,but the high spending of players were to make a better squad and to bring strength to the team.If we go down that be the players fault for not making their mark on the pitch!When gates go down and people stop coming that be the reason the club will go into administration.The whole whole squad needs to be changed around and hopefully it will happen.

Who else? It was he that failed to keep his promise to "live within our means" grossly overspent, which made the Club insolvent. To be allowed to continue to trade the Board agreed to sell off the Squad. That cost us a likely promotion and a great Manager and team. Nothing was learnt from this debacle, expenditure has increased we are paying huge wages for average players, inflated transfer fees, again for average players on borrowed money. Poor Manager's appointed, chosen by Mitchell. Absolute rubbish football, supporters walking away in their thousands with a huge drop in revenue for the Club. We are now in the Relegation Zone, losing money on a daily basis and with an ever increasing debt mountain.As I said , I anticipate Admistration next year, unless everything is turned rouund now, and that is unlikely, Of the coming games, only Orient are likely to give us a chance of a point.The buck stops with the man in charge!!. .
