AFC Bournemouth now sit 19th in the Premier League following a 3-0 thrashing at home to Watford yesterday.
It is now their ninth defeat in their last 11 games with the Cherries dropping 12 league places in this period.
No one will deny the achievements of manager Eddie Howe since he took charge of the club in 2012, but have fans finally lost their patience?
This is how Cherries’ fans reacted to the “embarrassing” defeat:
Absolute nightmare, but no team could handle the injury list we’ve got. If we go down we’ll bounce back the next season.

We are getting relegated

Gutless, pathetic and embarrassing, the players should be ashamed of themselves for not looking like they care at all. Seems like the only thing these players care about is the money as the lack of effort is astonishing

Hopefully this is Eddie’s last game. Absolutely love what he has achieved, and we wouldn’t be here without him. But his time is up. Surely the aim is to stay up, and even after what he has done, that aim must be achieved even if it means replacing the management team. ???

Eddie Howe and Bournemouth are no strangers to a relegation battle, but have they dropped one point too many?
