SUPA FLETCH: Turning AFC Bournemouth from boys to men

By -

Supa Fletch sprinkles his gold dust.

The big man is indeed back and whatever your opinion of the man and his signing there is no doubting the effect he has had.

The team walked out on the pitch against Wycombe looking like they meant business. They look liked a team of men, instead of boys, who were ready to battle for the cause. This was typically personified by Fletch barking out instructions to all, often occupying two defenders and giving the ref a hard time .

We saw a man of the match performance from ‘Pot Noodle’ Pitman. A superb free-kick, good corner kicks, great tracking back and a constant menace. Apart from one mistake by the goalkeeper, Eddie Howe, in his first game as AFCB manager, will have been very pleased with a performance that got the result it deserved. Notice, none of that fine example of footballing prowess known as hoofball. Played along the ground and passed the ball. Result, we won, exactly like we did aginst Bury.

Howe’s signing of Fleth and Joe Roach’s tactical input could prove to be the perfect combination that keeps the Cherries in the league.
