I THINK many AFCB supporters are missing the big picture after Eddie’s announcement.

Max Demin in his statement said that he is still ambitious for the club and wants to see the club move forward. I fail to see how the club can move forward without a bigger and better stadium.

I wonder too how many new and some older supporters were lost because they couldn’t get tickets to watch the Cherries in the Premiership. The current stadium is barely fit for League One yet alone the championship.

I believe the lease on the Vitality runs out in approximately 10 years. What then? Will AFCB be homeless like Coventry?

So come on Max, let the fans know exactly what your ambitions are for the club.

It’s hard to see a replacement in the near future for Eddie Howe especially after the fantastic achievements under his guidance. Leaving ‘by mutual consent’ normally means the parties involved can’t agree on the way forward. So I say again, come on Max, show the supporters who have followed the Cherries rollercoaster through thick and thin, that you really mean business when you say you want to take the club forward!

Up the Cherries.
