Barnet Reaction - Cherries

Last updated : 30 December 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
After a poor home performance, even if the Cherries did have much of the possession, with little in the way of an end product, manager Jimmy Quinn is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I'm no quitter, don't ever think that. I heard one guy shout out "resign" but I would never do that, not in a month of Sundays. What sort of person would I be if I threw in the towel? I've never done that in my life and never would. Those decisions are not in my hands, they're in the board's hands. But I'm confident in what I'm doing and we've just got to have a belief. You never get a job when a team is top of the league, you get one when they are struggling. I believe I will turn this around and hope other people do, so we'll just have to wait and see".

Reacting to one fan getting in to the technical area to berate Quinn and Tindall, Quinn went on to say: "One fan came down and ripped up his ticket in front of me. I wasn't very happy about that because it is his team. Perhaps if he'd had a little think about what he was doing, he would have done something different. If you get that frustrated with it then it's difficult. But this is everybody's club and everybody's team. The only way we're going to get out of the position we're in is by sticking together. It's a difficult situation but we've got to keep working hard and keep believing we can get enough points to stay up. I felt for the players a little bit today because it's a confidence game. I know people pay their money to watch and want to see their team win but when you're booing your own players, it does affect them and I felt sorry for them. We had 10 corners and 18 crosses in the second half and those stats alone tell you that we had the majority of the play. We couldn't put the ball in the back of the net and goals win you games. It was the same against Brentford when we didn't look like scoring. I can't fault the players' effort. It's a frustrating game but, at times like this, it's important that we galvanise and stick together. If the players are going out and not trying then you've got a problem but I can't say that. We're all disappointed but there are a lot of games to be played. I played the game long enough to know that it certainly doesn't help when you're getting booed. They tried their best".
