These can be the most difficult weeks of Eddie's Howe career, because he detained Bournemouth in League Two after VAR farce in defeat by Burnley
- The bad recent form van Bournemouth continued as they were beaten 3- 0 by Burnley
- Coach Neil Moss was sent for attempting to show a repeat to the fourth official
- The Harry Wilson strike was aborted and Jay Rodriguez fired at Burnley & # 39; s penalty
- This could be the most difficult time for Eddie Howe because they were in League Two
Moss tied to the touchline with a iPad iPad ] to protest after Adam Smith was judged to have treated the ball in his own area, before Bournemouth broke the downfield to to score.
That the Harry Wilson strike for the visitors was aborted and Jay Rodriguez fired home Burnley & # 39; s penalty, leaving the Cherries 2-0 behind instead of level, ending the game like a competition.
Referee Mike Dean gave Moss his marching orders and the coach watc hed the rest of the defeat from the end at Turf Moor.
& # 39; The red card was possible for showing the decision on the iPad, trying to take it over to the fourth official, & # 39; said Eddie Howe. & # 39; Isn't that logical if you think there has been injustice? But common sense does not seem to be applied at this time. 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. & # 39;
These are perhaps the most difficult weeks of Howe & # 39; s management career since the early days, keeping Bournemouth in the Football League afloat with financial problems and penalty points. They stay dangerously close to the bottom three – two points above the 18th placed West Ham – and Howe looks down and then looks at Chelsea and Liverpool.
& # 39; You have to respond and create that siege mentality, & he added.
& # 39; We feel that we have been here before. Many employees have had that position and we can certainly draw on those experiences at the moment. & # 39;
Bournemouth struggled to tackle Rodriguez and Matej Vydra, the latter only made his fourth Premier League start since £ 11 million moved from Watford two years ago.
Vydra has never been a favorite of Sean Dyche, but he offered Burnley Guile forwards and let them attack with speed.
& # 39; The best thing for me is he works for his chance, & said Dyche. & # 39; He stretched out the field. It is effective.
& # 39; He waited and waited and delivered, so fair play. & # 39;
Again, you left a sense of discouragement. Eddie Howe certainly felt worse and wore the look of someone about to burst into tears.
We all continue our lives after this, a summary of how barbaric this sport has become in the midst of an absurdity of a season, but what about Bournemouth? What about Howe?
It's not just about VAR and its rotten implementation. It's the rules and how they are applied by the boys behind computer screens hundreds of miles away. It is about referees who no longer take ownership on the pitch. All the above changes the atmosphere of games.

Bournemouth may have won this competition in previous years, five points away from the relegation zone in the process, at a time when the expression & # 39; clear and clear & # 39; was not so controversial.
But not now, not after goals from Matej Vydra, Jay Rodriguez and Dwight McNeil sent Burnley eighth and wondered if another tilt in Europe is on the horizon. The whole story is not, with Bournemouth glowing with the officers, watching Joshua King's goal when this level was not allowed for a marginal handball poked in Stockley Park for minutes.
They can claim that it was right that the lower shoulder of Philip Billing Howe & # 39; s side offered an unfair advantage from a corner, but no one here – not even at home – would have a crush on it would have sailed if Chris Kavanagh had stuck to Mike Dean's original decision. Seeing a confused Phil Bardsley who happily asked Dean why King & # 39; s finish was destroyed said it all.
So Burnley led Vydra eight minutes after halftime and extended it in the 61st minute in comic circumstances: Bournemouth scored and Burnley went up 2-0 in the same move.
Adam Smith stupidly moved his arm toward the McNeil cross and again, it would hed his lower shoulder. Dean continued to play, Bournemouth galloped on the break with a devastating effect and Harry Wilson equalized. Pure, unadulterated, counterattack. They celebrated wildly, a big goal in their search for survival, while Kavanagh turned on the dreaded monitor.
The end result was a Burnley penalty, reduced 90 meters, and one Rodriguez hit it. The decision was debatable – some will agree, others will not – and the prevailing emotion was injustice. Neil Moss, the goalkeeper coach of Bournemouth, was sent for a remonstration and jumped the rest of the afternoon in the end.
Burnley also called the penalty when Steve Cook & clumsy defense eventually raised his arm, but Kavanagh did not turn the decision around. East Lancashire roared, and not just because of the elements. Bournemouth, generally less direct than Burnley, weathered the wind in a more secure manner and somehow did not lead the break.
Nick Pope was thwarting Callum Wilson's volley after a happy jump, before he stood up to take Harry Wilson's header away as if he were on goalkeeper the beach was. Jack Stacey could only shoot straight at England's stopper, while Billing was allowed to carry 60 yards of undisputed possession without penalizing the hosts.
Strangely enough, Burnley will say they had the better chances. The inclusion of Vydra – only his fourth Premier League start and first this season – gave them new ideas, an option to run behind that is simply not there.
Vyrda scored the winner in Southampton last week and could have added but then for Aaron Ramsdale in the opening period. First, the £ 11 million attacker turned around and turned around two defenders, but was thwarted by Ramsdale before later failing to completely lob the goalkeeper's grip on Ben Mee's long ball.
Unsurprisingly, the Czech gave Burnley an advantage shortly after the break. McNeil & # 39; s pass was simple but ultimately smart in putting Vydra left and he did the rest, and sold Simon Francis a dummy and skilful cut over the desperate Ramsdale to score for the first time in 518 days.
Rodriguez settled the penalty, McNeil hit the post. McNeil closed the game beautifully, cut from the right and bumped into the top left corner of Ramsdale, a moment of real class that shows why the big clubs are circling. Burnley certainly deserved it towards the end, and was thrashing off the ground because Bournemouth could not face the pure character of modern football.
More VAR drama makes Bournemouth roar after Harry Wilson's equalizer is ruled out and Burnley is awarded a penalty at the other end – after Josh King's opener was also denied
Harry Wilson thought he had equalized, completed a sharp counterattack after Matej Vydra had opened the scoring minutes earlier.
But after the players celebrated, VAR ruled out the goal and instead a penalty to Burnley.
The officials at Stockley Park had an apparent handball from Adam Smith in his penalty area seen at the start of the move.
A looping cross caught in the strong wind struck Smith on top of his arm before he was released.
Jay Rodriguez then properly converted the sentence and sent Ramsdale the wrong way to make it 2-0.
It was not the first VAR intervention in the game, with Cherries seething after their opening goal was also excluded.
Josh King thought he had repented from a corner, but VAR ruled it for a handball by Philip Billing.
After the second unauthorized goal, Bournemouth's keeper Neil Moss was sent by Mike Dean for disagreeing with the decision.
Burnley has no cheating, but they again showed that they have a lot of guts against Brighton
- Burnley pulled 1-1 with Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon
- Neal Maupay & # 39; s second half strike seemed to be the difference between the teams
- Jeff Hendrick grabbed a point for the visitors with an equalizer stop time
Burnley will never be the easiest in the eye.
No silky soft Latin skills that the football audience can drool over. No exorbitant brilliant flashes. But what they have in abundance is tenacity and willpower with which they can live with the elite.
And that was illustrated at the Amex Stadium. After dominating the first 25 minutes to the extent that Brighton manager Graham Potter got his formation moving again, Burnley lost momentum.
They are, the reflection of their manager Sean Dyche. He never gave up on Burnley, and that attitude led to a draw that seemed highly unlikely when the match entered the 90th minute with Brighton through the poisonous strike of Neal Maupay.
Dyche had Jeff Hendrick and Matej Vydra trying to save a point. It worked to perfection when Vydra passed Hendrick's pass to fire a terrifying shot – the perfect way for the Republic of Ireland to celebrate its 100th Premier League appearance.
And he described exactly what the bond between the players of Burnley can produce, with Dyche & # 39; s men scoring too late to be a coincidence.
& # 39; We have done it a lot since I am here, & Hendrick said. "The team has always stayed in competitions and even if things are not going well on the field, we stay there and give ourselves the chance to get something out of the competition."
Hendrick, however, was not the man of the competition. That was Solly March from Brighton who developed his all-round game.
"When he has too much time to think I'm not sure if it's the best for him!" Potter said. "He has quality and he just has to play with a little freedom."
& # 39; I almost want to find the guy who wrote it and say: & # 39; thank you, you are magical & # 39 ;: Sean Dyche reveals insulting article in Southampton's program, inspired Burnley to win at St Mary & # 39; s
- Burnley achieved crucial victory in Southampton thanks to the stunner of Matej Vydra
- Ashley Westwood brought visitors forward before the striker Danny Ings of the saint
- The feature focused on players including left back Charlie Taylor and others
[Boss [Boss [Boss Dyche revealed side was inspired by disparaging program article
When faced with Burnley the last thing you want to do is give them extra motivation.
Unintentionally, Southampton did exactly that with an article in their competition program. Back left Charlie Taylor was a certain target.
& # 39; They were rather contemptuous about Charlie, & # 39; Dyche said. & # 39; His shape must have almost pushed him into thinking on the national side. & # 39;
There were also suggestions that Burnley was a long ball team and only after Sheffield United in that playing style. So did Dyche read the article to his players before the game?
& # 39; They had already read it & # 39 ;, he revealed after the 2-1 in a storm-devastated competition devastated by Storm Dennis as a spectacle. .
& # 39; I don't know why programs & # 39; s do that. I love it. I almost want to find the guy who wrote it and say, "Thanks, you're magic." & # 39;
It must be said that none of the Southampton coaching or staff play was responsible for the words – but that didn't matter to Dyche.
He usually spends his time before the game playing Candy Crush. At St Mary he was able to deliver a final ditch message.
& # 39; I said, "Guys, here you go, that's what they think of you" and they were "Oh, right." & # 39;
And they duly delivered and although Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhuttl clearly has a different football philosophy than Dyche, he admitted: & # 39; Everyone knows how they play, but they do well and they did it to us. It's always nasty to play against, but we knew that. & # 39;
And Danish central defender Jannick Vestergaard saw the defeat as a missed opportunity to further strengthen Southampton's Premier League status, which looks considerably clearer after their spirited response to the 9-0 humiliation at home at Leicester end October
& # 39; It was a good opportunity to return to ways to win & # 39 ;, said Vestergaard.
& # 39; But it was a reminder that if we want to keep winning Premier League games, we have to do better. & # 39;
That was all water from the proverbial duck back to Dyche and his men. They look up instead of down and European football is a legitimate target. However, Dyche is not someone for an exaggerated response to a series of decent results, including three wins and a draw in their last four games.
& # 39; We were doomed for that, & # 39; said Dyche, who adopted the old adopted cliché, a worn & one game at a time & # 39;
And although Chris Wood has put Ashely Barnes on the injury list, Dyche & # 39; s super-sub Matej Vydra turned out to be the match winner when he got his usual seat on the substitute bank left to replace Wood and scored a spectacular winner.
Dyche has no problem with Vydra's attitude and believes that the goal – with its quality and importance – may give the Czech Republic a huge boost of confidence.
A bizarre opening goal from Ashley Westwood directly from a corner that allowed Danny Ings to go to the near post when he fully expected the ball to go for a goal kick was followed by a period of Southampton domination.
Ings equalized with a frightening shot from the edge of the area and Jack Stephens hit the bar with a header. Burnley regrouped and Vydra picked up a glorious winner on the hour.
& # 39; As we know, pointed targets sometimes change their mind, & # 39; Dyche said. & # 39; But I think his overall work ethic was good and he will buzz. It will give him a lift as a person because he has buried and buried. & # 39;
Dyche needed James Tarkowski to stand on their orders to keep Ings relatively still after his goal – but perhaps the Saints striker could add to his awarded England cap when he played 35 minutes as a substitute in a 3-0 win against Lithuania in 2015.
& I think Gareth Southgate has shown that he is fairly open to players, so we'll see & # 39 ;, Dyche said. & # 39; He certainly sets a marker with his goals. & # 39;
& # 39; Does Danny Ings know that he no longer plays for Burnley?! & # 39 ;: Southampton striker mocked at social media because he could inexplicably let the former club score directly from a corner … before he makes up for it again with wonderful purpose
- Danny Ings allowed former Burnley club to take the lead against Southampton
- He allowed Burnley directly to score from a corner when failing to clear the ball
- Ings made changes by scoring the Southampton equalizer later in half
- The attacker was criticized for his defense leading to the opener
Danny Ings may have one of his best seasons for goal, but it was his bizarre defense that was the center of perhaps the strangest goal of the season.
The striker inexplicably decided for some reason to leave the ball when the corner of Ashley Westwood flew past him and curled straight into the net.
It was a shocking mistake for Ings to make while he actively jumped out of the way of the ball, presumably expecting his goalkeeper to make the catch.
The goal was made somewhat embarrassing by the fact that it hit its former side, where it scored 38 goals in 122 games between 2011 and 2015.
It is not surprising that the striker since then on social media is mocked for the bizarre mistake.
Ciaran Mitchell tweeted: & Does Danny Ings know he doesn't play for Burnley and ymore ?! & # 39;
Several fans criticized Ings for his lack of defense with Devten Kutner, supporter of Tottenham Hotspurs: & congratulations to Danny Ings for doing 100% of everything you can do wrong to get a close defend the corner. & # 39;
] Anthony Jimenez added: & # 39; That's the worst defense I've ever seen from a set piece. & # 39;
While Nadir Hassan finally tweeted: & # 39; Well left out of the stump of Danny Ings. & # 39;
Ings was able to let himself in just 16 minutes after the first goal, when he won the ba at the edge of the penalty area and pushed a small effort past Nick Pope to score his 15th league goal of the season.
The goal of the striker, however, still seems to bite its current side after Burnley re-took the lead in the second half through a stunning effort by Matej Vydra.

Ben Gibson starts training with Middlesbrough TODAY … despite still being under contract with Burnley
- Ben Gibson has a contract with Burnley until the summer of 2022
- The defender joined the Clarets from Middlesbrough for £ 15 million in 2018
- But the 27-year-old is struggling to break into the team under Sean Dyche
- Relations between Gibson and Burnley have become incredibly tense
Ben Gibson was remarkably set to start training in Middlesbrough on Wednesday – although he is still under contract with Burnley until 2022.
Relations between the defender, which was signed for £ 15 million from Boro in 2018, and Burnley is assumed to have become so tense that from this week he can work with his home club. Boro has confirmed that Gibson will be with them on Wednesday.
The exact nature – and duration – of the agreement that allows Gibson to take this step is unclear, but Sportsmail understands that he will be at Durham base at Rockliffe in Boro this week.
Gibson has only played six times in all competitions for Burnley since joining in August 2018, and is believed to have always been discouraged by his lack of action from the first team – his only senior appearance this period was against Sunderland in the Carabao Cup in August.
The 27-year-old – allegedly earning around £ 40,000 a week – was then frustrated when a proposed loan moved to Watford in the final days of the January transfer window fell through.
It was thought that there was a disagreement between Burnley and Gibson, was recently created when members of the coaching staff discussed his performance with him in a training session.
It was then argued that Gibson would work with the Clarets & # 39; Under 23 team, before it was decided that Gibson would work away from the club for the time being.
Gibson, the cousin of Boro owner Steve Gibson, came through the youth ranks in Middlesbrough and signed his first professional deal in 2010. Gibson is supposed to have a good relationship with Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate, whom he idolized as a young player.
Boron showed an interest in signing Gibson in Janu ary, with Woodgate saying, "Would he be open to come back?" I'm not sure about that. But he's a Boro boy, isn't he? & # 39;
Burnley declined to comment while the Gibson representatives could not be reached.
