It is a bleak picture for Eddie Howe after the VAR farce in the defeat of Bournemouth against Burnley
These are perhaps the most difficult weeks in Eddie’s Howe’s career since he retained Bournemouth in League Two after VAR farce in defeat by Burnley
- The bad recent form of Bournemouth continued because they were beaten 3-0 by Burnley
- Coach Neil Moss was sent for an attempt to show a replay to the fourth official
- The Harry Wilson strike was aborted and Jay Rodriguez fired into Burnley’s penalty
- This could be the hardest time for Eddie Howe since they were in League Two
Bournemouth goalkeeper coach Neil Moss was sent after an attempt to show the fourth official Tony Harrington a repeat during a VAR farce that overshadowed Burnley’s victory.
Mos went to the sidelines with an iPad to protest after Adam Smith was judged to have treated the ball in his own area, before Bournemouth broke the field to score.
That Harry Wilson’s strike was interrupted for the visitors and Jay Rodriguez fired Burnley’s penalty, leaving the Cherries 2-0 instead of level, which ended the game as a game.

Referee Mike Dean gave Moss his marching orders and the coach saw the rest of the defeat from the end at Turf Moor.
“The red card was possible to show the decision on the iPad, trying to transfer it to the fourth official,” said Eddie Howe. ‘That makes sense if you think there has been injustice? But common sense does not seem to be applied at the moment.
‘Of course the officials have to deal with it. We don’t want it to be a farce. It makes a mockery of a high-quality game and two teams give everything. I know Burnley was the beneficiary, but it’s not the way you want to win a game. “
These are perhaps the most difficult weeks of Howe’s management career since the early days, keeping Bournemouth afloat in the Football League amid financial problems and penalty points. They stay dangerously close to the bottom three – two points above the 18th placed West Ham – and Howe, who looks down, then faces Chelsea and Liverpool.

“You have to respond and create that investment mentality,” he added.
“We feel like we’ve been here before. Many employees have been in that position and we can certainly count on those experiences right now. “
Bournemouth struggled to tackle Rodriguez and Matej Vydra, the latter only made his fourth Premier League start since a £ 11 million move from Watford two years ago.
Vydra has never been a favorite of Sean Dyche, but he offered Burnley cheats and allowed them to attack with speed.
“The best thing for me is that he works for his chance,” Dyche said. “He stretched out the field. It is effective.
“He waited and waited and delivered, so fair play.”
