147 - The Tiger Who Came... For THREE!

147 - The Tiger Who Came... For THREE!

At one point this season, Bournemouth were NINE points clear of the team in third, yet now, we are three points behind the team in second. It's all a bit tense, so let’s come together, breathe, and talk… so, to talk Tigers it’s Sam, Tom and Tigz. This season has been dubbed the poorest in terms of Championship quality. On paper, we should be streets ahead, in reality, we’re just one of many teams that is contributing to the lack of quality in this division.  However, all is not lost, and we’ve got things in our own hands - but with 19 games to go, is it time we took an honest look in the mirror and just admitted to ourselves that there is a problem here? We’re seeing a desire for controlling games. But what is “control”? Is control “safe”? Is control playing keep-ball when you could otherwise unleash the natural potential in your squad? Is it, overplaying the ball and trying to walk it into the net? Does that approach not give a bit of impetus to the opposition? We'll chew the fat and try to end on a high, as ever!

146 - A Kenilworth Calamity

146 - A Kenilworth Calamity

We take a comprehensive dissecting of Saturday lunchtime’s 3-2 defeat at the hands of Luton Town with Sam Davis, Tom Jordan, Jeff Hayward, plus your thoughts after the game too! It was a last minute goal from the Hatters that secured the points at Kenilworth Road and it was a sickener to say the least. In the first half Cherries were outfought and didn’t lay a glove on Luton or look bothered by it. In the Second half, we had our period of control and looked good, but normally, if a team comes back from two down they go on to win it (if there is a deciding goal). Bournemouth however - stopped, and it was the home side that fought to get the decider and we hardly had a kick. This is a hard one to unravel but we'll do our best!

144 - Press Pass: The Season So Far

144 - Press Pass: The Season So Far

After Saturday's turgid performance at Middlesbrough, Jacob Tanswell from Dorset Live joins Tigz, Tom and Jeff to mull over the sorry showing at the Riverside as Bournemouth fell to a frustrating 1-0 defeat. There's lots to discuss, not least - a major worry about Cherries recent showings, and mutual cogitation over how Scott Parker can arrest this decline in form. The loss at Boro initially looked like a game of two halves, however when you look at the game as a whole, it was nothing but a deserved loss which arguably could have been more damaging. And why are Cherries shipping so many second half goals?  Out of the 20 conceded this season, 17 of them have been in the second half! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to all our platforms.

142 - Rovers Return... With Three Points

142 - Rovers Return... With Three Points

A resurgent Blackburn Rovers came to Dean Court full of confidence after their incredible run of games, and they continued that form thanks to a goal either side of half time. Indeed, a dispirited AFC Bournemouth failed to make inroads against a well drilled and well-organised Tony Mowbray team - and this left the Cherries just three points clear of third - ouch! Sam, Jeff, Tigz, Tom, and Neil get together to work out the hows, what’s and why’s - as, despite the 2-0 home defeat, it was the manner of the performance that was more concerning, with a lack of intensity and flair which has served us so well for large parts of the season. Just what went so wrong? Thank you to everyone who has contributed to all our platforms.
