伯恩茅斯:"關鍵物品在弗利的盤子裡等着"。

伯恩茅斯:"關鍵物品在弗利的盤子裡等着"。

隨着英超聯賽因為世界盃而進入為期一個月的擱置模式,感覺伯恩茅斯已經有一段時間處於他們自己的擱置模式了。

比爾-弗利的收購在上個月達成一致並簽署,文件已經提交給英超聯賽。雖然預計不會有什麼問題,但在聯盟對交易進行審核之前,事情不能向前推進。

弗利的第一個項目是任命一名永久經理(或 "主教練",正如過去的幾個任命被稱為)。

上周末有報道稱,前利茲隊老闆馬塞洛-貝爾薩在候選名單上,並進行了會談--而周六的3-0大勝埃弗頓的比賽引發了一輪反猜測,即看守人加里-奧尼爾仍在爭奪全職的位置。

弗利還談到了對俱樂部基礎設施的投資。在坎福德麥格納的新訓練場上的工作正在繼續,而在體育場上也有一個決定要做。買回Vitality體育場,然後擴大它是一個選擇--但也許更有可能的是找到一個新的場地,從頭開始。

另一個緊迫的問題將是合同問題。雖然多米尼克-索蘭克、克里斯-梅普漢姆、亞當-史密斯、劉易斯-庫克、馬克-特拉弗斯和大衛-布魯克斯都在夏季轉為秋季時簽訂了新的合同,但還有其他人--特別是傑弗遜-萊爾馬、傑頓-安東尼和喬丹-澤穆拉--在2023年夏季之後沒有合同。

與此同時,世界盃迫在眉睫--由於菲利普-比林出人意料地被忽視在丹麥的最終陣容中,櫻桃隊的球迷將只有威爾士二人組梅帕姆和基弗-摩爾可以為之歡呼。


As the Premier League moves into a month-long holding pattern because of the World Cup, it feels like Bournemouth have been in a holding pattern of their own for a while.

Bill Foley’s takeover was agreed and signed last month, with the paperwork submitted to the Premier League. Although no problems are anticipated, matters cannot move forward until the league has rubber-stamped the deal.

The first item in Foley’s in-tray will be the appointment of a permanent manager (or “head coach”, as the last couple of appointments have been called).

Reports emerged at the end of last week that ex-Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa was on the shortlist and had held talks – while Saturday’s emphatic 3-0 win over Everton prompted a round of counter-speculation that caretaker Gary O’Neil was still in contention to land the position full-time.

Foley has also talked of investing in the club’s infrastructure. Work is continuing on the new training ground at Canford Magna, while there is a decision to be made over the stadium. Buying back Vitality Stadium and then expanding it is an option – but perhaps more likely would be to find a new site to start from scratch.

Another pressing issue will be that of contracts. While Dominic Solanke, Chris Mepham, Adam Smith, Lewis Cook, Mark Travers and David Brooks all penned new deals as summer turned to autumn, there are others – notably Jefferson Lerma, Jaidon Anthony and Jordan Zemura – who are not contracted beyond summer 2023.

In the meantime, the World Cup looms - and with Philip Billing surprisingly overlooked for Denmark’s final squad, Cherries fans will just have Wales duo of Mepham and Kieffer Moore to cheer on.
