Eddie Howe has admitted Bournemouth’s record signing Jordon Ibe has been “a disappointment” and blamed the large number of summer arrivals for his side’s failure to progress in the FA Cup.
Bournemouth comprehensively lost their third-round tie at League One Millwall 3-0 on Saturday after making 11 changes to the team that played the previous league fixture. Afterwards Howe said he had been “excited” by the line-up he selected, but admitted they had failed to perform.
The match also provided a rare start for the £15m Ibe, but the former Liverpool winger failed to make a mark. “He hasn’t been a regular in the team and that will be a disappointment for him and for us.” Howe said of the Bermondsey-born forward. “I still feel there’s a lot of potential in there, but obviously he’s got to fulfil that when he gets chances like today.
Getting 15m £ for him was great business. You robbed poor Bournemough blind

He is still pretty young. Careful nurturing (by mentors) and hardwork & dedication (by him) can make a good player out of him.
