Today sees the 2011/12 season kick-off with AFC Bournemouth looking forward to yet another successful season. But, it was only three seasons ago that we had the pleasure of Mr Jimmy Quinn at the helm.
We can laugh now but back then the bottom of the barrel was getting ever closer, culminating in a televised defeat by non-league Blyth Spartans. Here we remember the good times? bad times and the plain ridiculous from our very own eyes.
Here’s just over eight minutes of that fabulous goaless draw in the 2R of the FA Cup
Jimmy Quinn will probably be remembered for being a complete failure but his record for his time in charge may not be as bad as you think. Head to Head: Bond, Quinn, and Howe. But, lets be honest most of his tenure was awful and some of the worst footbal seen at Dean Court, plenty of HOOFBALL.
A series of posts from TFTSE describe his efforts: Jimmy Quinn: Same old s**t, 4-4-2, Quinn hasn’t got a clue, A message from TSES to Jimmy Quinn, RIP AFC Bournemouth. Not all were veering towards the negative we did manage one to the positive, Just like watching Brazil.
After less than four months in charge the new owners Sports-6 decided it was time that Mr Quinn had to go, thank god. TFTSE celebrated along with many other fans, Quinn leaves, Happy New Year!!. However, we have to leave it with Mr Jimmy Quinn himself who perfectly described his time in charge, Quinn: “It was a complete disaster”.
Lets just hope we never go back to those dark days again
