Groves: Front-runner for Bournemouth job

The former Grimsby boss took over the role at Dean Court when Lee Bradbury was sacked in March, stepping up from youth team coach.

The Cherries have lost just two games in seven with Groves in charge, leading chairman Eddie Mitchell to state him as his preferred choice to replace Bradbury.

Mitchell is set to discuss the managerial situation with co-owner Maxim Demin after the final match of the season against Preston on Saturday, and Groves admits he is flattered by his chairman's comments.

"I think it's very complimentary from the chairman to come out and make that statement," Groves told the Grimsby Telegraph.

"We came in and the remit was to take the team until the end of the season, that's what we've done and we will continue to take the team on a game-to-game basis."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
