'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jimmy Quinn Sacked By The Cherries

After only 121 days in charge former Swindon Town striker and then manager Jimmy Quinn has left his post at the Dorset club.

With the Cherries docked 17 points, Jimmy Quinn was seen as the man to save them from dropping out of the football league.

Quinn started by making steady progress taking them out of minus points but inconsistent form and being dumped out of the FA Cup by lowly Blyth Spartans saw some sections of their fans grow increasingly restless. Quinn also brought in Blair Sturrock in from Swindon for a brief loan spell earlier in his spell.

Quinn's departure occurred shortly after Bournemouth chairman Paul Baker also left the club.

Eddie Howe (who once had a brief, appearance free loan spell at Swindon) takes charge for the away fixture at Darlington on Saturday.

I've got a lot of time for Jimmy Quinn - great player and didn't stand a chance as manager. Good luck to him.

Agreed great player, but seems to be a bit hot and cold to me as a manager.

Bet Quinn wishes he stayed at Cambridge, He did well there and they haven't really been the same since he left. Why did he leave there anyway?

It was behind-the-scenes as opposed to on the pitch. I remember after they lost the Play-Off Final to Exeter, 8 of 11 who started that day had gone, whether it was financial or down to Quinn's management I don't know.
