AFC Bournemouth supporters staged an impromptu ‘protest’ after the final whistle of their 3-0 home defeat to Chesterfield on Saturday, which basically involved a mass haranguing of owner Eddie Mitchell for his decision to flog off seven of the players that saw the Cherries reach the League One play-offs last season after being promoted from League Two the season prior.

Mitchell then nabbed a microphone and took to the pitch to argue his corner – inviting one lucky leather jacket-clad fan in particular back to his office for a one-on-one debate as to the pros and cons of the club’s recent transfer policy…

The fans’ concerns over re-investment are perfectly valid but, given that the man has saved the club from liquidation twice and only sold his leading lights (for a total of £4.5 million) this summer to ease the relentless strain on the coffers, you’d think that Mitchell would command a little more leeway in and around Dean Court wouldn’t you?

Oi, silly football men. Stop being so silly.

    Ah yes, Eddie Mitchell.

    Not even future potential Sex God understudy apprentice material.

    to be fair, i’d probably need to be on the groggy-side to have the balls for that. he’s pumping money into that club – so fair enough he can have a rant every now and then. but i’m happy it isn’t my team
