Stick or Twist?

Its not been the start to the Premier League campaign that AFC Bournemouth would have hoped for so far, losing all 4 of their matches so far and scoring just 1 goal.

Having played both Manchester City and Arsenal respectively in their last two matches, most ‘Cherries’ fans wouldn’t have expected their side to pick up anything from those games when they looked at their seasons fixtures, but would have hoped for some more endeavour especially at the Emirates Stadium this weekend where they were beaten 3-0.

The clubs owner has backed manager Eddie Howe this summer in the transfer market, bringing in proven Premier League players, with the likes of Jermain Defoe, Nathan Ake and Asmir Begovic all arriving at the Vitality Stadium.

Despite those names arriving, the club have so far struggled, and head into what can only be described as a must win game this coming weekend against Brighton and Hove Albion.

After four games of a Premier League season, it would be strange to start talking about managerial changes at clubs with it still being so early on in the campaign, but if the run of defeats was to continue it leaves the clubs owner in a difficult position, as Eddie Howe has worked wonders for Bournemouth but on the other hand the club will want to preserve their Premier League status.

AFC Bournemouth fans do you think he club should stick by manager Eddie Howe no matter what happens in the coming weeks or if you were to lose another few games would you like to see a change? Let us know in the comments section….

Leicester winger subject of huge bid from Bournemouth

Leicester City winger, Demarai Gray, is the subject of a £25 million bid by Bournemouth, according to Sky Sports News HQ.

Gray is understood to be keen on a move to the South Coast, but the Foxes are keen to hold on to their rising star.

The former Birmingham winger hasn’t featured much for Leicester during his 18 months with Leicester, as Claudio Ranieri preferred to utilise Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton.

With a question mark still hanging over the head of Riyad Mahrez, it seems unlikely that Leicester will let Gray leave, but if the player decides to push for the move, then it could be a late one that goes through.

Gray has made 42 appearances for Leicester in his 18 month stint, scoring two goals in the process, but his influence to the Foxes side has been wider than just goals and assists.

Working under Ranieri, Gray has vastly improved the defensive side of his game, which makes him almost the perfect fit for Bournemouth
