'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Post Match Reaction: AFC Bournemouth

The Crisis at Dean Court has deepened as The Cherries suffered another demoralising defeat at home at the hands of Swansea City.

AFC Bournemouth's Chairman Jeff Mostyn has in recent weeks spoken about his concerns at The Fitness First Stadium and about Cherries manager Kevin Bond.

Mostyn told the Bournemouth Echo:

'The pressure is on everyone at the moment, most of all the manager. I had a long meeting with Kevin Bond to discuss the situation and he is fully aware of the current sentiments and the pressure he is under.'

I am not afraid to make what I believe is the right decision for the club, but those decisions have to be made with our financial position in mind."



Swansea's win at Bournemouth has put more pressure on Bond's position at the club . His position has been growing increasingly untenable as the club struggles to get of the bottom of leauge one.

In his pre match comments Bond was confident of overhauling Swansea City.

That confidence was shattered when Ferrie Bodde unleashed a sublime 25 yard free kick which left Neil Moss stranded. Dennis Lawrence extended Swansea's lead with a well guided header. Lee Bradbury got one back for the hosts before half time. Swansea then restored the 2 goal advantage with a converted penalty by ex Cherries striker Warren Feeney . The Northern Ireland international made it 4-1 with 2 minutes remaining.

Bond has insisted that Bournemouth matched their counterparts and were unlucky not to secure points from the game.

Bond told the Bournemouth Echo:

''Until they got their third goal, we were always well in the game. I thought we were as good as them in the first half and created as many chances as they did.'

We had the lion's share of the play until they scored the third goal and Bradders (Bradbury) had a good opportunity to make it 2-2, which would have made it a different game.

Overall, they will be as good a team as there is in the league this season and while the scoreline would suggest that they gave us a good hiding, I don't think that was the case.'


Can the Swans maintain their current form and finally make it to the Championship at the third attempt?
