I do believe they are staying up. Get money, some help and maybe bring back EH. If not, he kills it in the Gold Cup and gets offers. Or he goes to another club at a higher level and gets more seasoning. Either way, his future is brighter than mine.
Doubt he'll be missed. He's played in 27 out of 33 games, but nobody's talking of him in terms of things he's done to make anyone sit up and take notice.
Unless he has some relegation clause in his contract, he will not be going to another club. EH will be their starting CM in Championship (if they got relegated). And Fulham promoted.....ugh....darn you irony!!!!!
Not. Going. To. Happen.
Maybe Fulham will come up, but Bournemouth are 7 points ahead of Swansea and have a GD that's 13 goals better (OK, OK, 13 goals less bad) with five games to go. They've got all-but-gone Middlesborough at home next and Sunderland away after that. Win either of those and they're on 38 points, needing - at most - 3 points from 3 games against safe teams.
They're not going down.
Just reiterating this. No one outside the current bottom 4 is going to go down.
And you'd back Hull to be the ones to escape. They've been "doomed" since the first day of the season, but they've shown fight and belief from day one, and the (arguably unfair) coaching change brought in a guy with a serious track record as a No. 1 coach.
At this stage it's about which team is bloody-minded enough to f#*k the other three over, and so far Hull have shown it. None of the others have.
Fulham promoted, hahahaha. Ah, these kids.
Yep, one could probably bet the farm against that this term, iffin one were so inclined. I just hope it ain't our man Ream that sabotages the effort.
Nothing new but it is getting a lot of ink.
Celtic move for Emerson Hyndman suffers a blow
Celtic have made initial contact with Bournemouth over a summer move, but any transfer could now be in jeopardy after on-loan midfielder Jack Wilshere suffered a broken leg in the Cherries’ 4-0 defeat at Tottenham last weekend.
The U.S. national team prospect has thrived after making the move to Scotland, keeping his Premier League dreams alive for next season.
Hyndman’s goal at the moment is to finish his run with Rangers in good form as he prepares for a return to Bournemouth, where he is hoping to compete for playing time next season. His name has been linked to transfer rumors, including interest from Celtic, but Hyndman is intent on battling for playing time at Bournemouth after having injury cost him that opportunity last summer.
“That was the goal when I came here, to get playing time and find my form and earn experience to help me in England,” Hyndman said. “I know Bournemouth has been keeping tabs on me and I feel good about competing for (playing time) next season.”
“I hope to have a shot maybe at the Gold Cup in the summer — that’s what I’m aiming for,” Hyndman said. “I think that’d be a good time to make an impact. You never know, that’s out of my control. All I can do is try to work hard and get into the squad.”
Aim higher than the Gold Cup, young man.
Gold Cup is high when you haven't gotten a call from the coach.
It's at least a starting point to prove himself worthy of the opportunities.
How Wilshire's broken leg can have any bearing on what Bournemouth do with Emo next season is beyond me. Wilshire is an Arsenal player (contracted until June 2018) on loan for the season. If the season is over, so is the loan unless the borrowing club makes an acceptable offer.
Why would Bournemouth make a permanent offer for a Wilshire when 1) his loan has been OK but scarcely inspiring, 2) they would have to pay his CL-starter wages, 3) they would have to pay a transfer fee, and 4) he has a troubling history of long-term fitness and injury problems? The money they'd spend to acquire him would get them Bobby Wood twice over.
He should skip the Gold Cup and focus on Bournemouthe. He should be in the squad for WCQ in June... we'll see.
Agree. I don't like our young Euros missing preseason training for a 2nd rate tournament, especially one where Mex won't even send their A squad.
At best you miss a couple weeks of training and arrive late and behind your competition. At worst you get injured and miss the entire preseason and first part of the season or more.
GC Final is July 26. EPL opens Aug 12. I really don't know why the GC doesn't start earlier. Euros ended on July 12 last year for example. Much better timing. GC actually starts July 7. Way too late for me.
Ahhhh, so, young player should say no when your country calls, putting some hypothetically perceived opportunity around self interest first.
Lol, @ the Majesty of Big Soccer.
Emo, if Bruce calls, pack your boots, come running and show the United States and the world what you got. Do the next right thing, keep doing it and things will take care of themselves.
That's what the big boys always do and everybody knows it.
Figuring out some selfish direction is a slippery slope at best.
8 games in June and July aren't going to negatively impact his ability to compete in August for Bouremouth. He's 20, he'll be fine
I'm not sure what EH should do this summer but starting pre-season late when you're trying to break into a team isn't a great thing.
I'll never forget the cautionary tale of Luis Robles and the 09 GC.
If The Cherries survive the season, they're going to go on a shopping spree.
I doubt Emo will be trying to break into the team, come pre-season. It's more likely (and better) that he gets loaned again.
The problem is the preseason is almost over by the time August rolls around. Not that it changes anything, but he just turned 21.

How does that compare to Bournemouthe's preseason last year? They reported on or before July 4th. They played two friendlies before and two right after that would be hard to expect him play in or make an impact. He'd likely miss 3-4 weeks of preseason and only have a couple weeks to get into the team. I'd say that's an up hill battle I wouldn't want him to be fighting against.

It is in the best interest of everyone. It does the team no good for him to show he's good enough at the Gold Cup only to lose out on minutes with his club. There is no reason Hyndman shouldn't be in the June camp, and obvious ones why the Gold Cup doesn't make sense for him. The kid needs to get his club career on the right track.
What's important for the NT is to have the best pool of players it can possibly achieve. Actively hurting players' club situations where they spend most of their time/career can have negative effects on both the individual and the program. And preseason is vitally important for youngsters looking to break into the squad ,especially in a league with massive money to throw around to replace you.
If it's a legit top tournament, WC, Copa A or Confed Cup, then I accept that risk. But a B team Gold Cup? I do not accept that risk for such a second rate tournament.
If you're a Jordan Morris, your club position is not under threat. So go to the GC. Little risk outside injury. If you're EMO you're fighting for your club career and as we saw last year, with a snap of the fingers your club can bring in a Jack Wilshere and your pathway is done. Your case needs to be made early in preseason so your club doesn't bring in others later in the transfer window.
Internationals usually getn1 - 2 weeks vacation after their summer international duty too.
It really does cut into the pre-season.
