After five years of playing in the top flight of English football, Bournemouth have been relegated from the Premier League.

They got a vital win at Everton but Aston Villa picked up a point, which condemned The Cherries to the Championship.

Relegation means the loss of lucrative television money but also players and possibly the manager, Eddie Howe.

This was the reaction of fans to Bournemouth's second goal.

But then Aston Villa scoring at West Ham meant the end of the dream.

The reaction of fans outside the Vitality Stadium in Boscombe on Monday was mixed but ever hopeful.

Former Bournemouth manager Harry Redknapp also thinks that keeping Eddie Howe will be the key to future success. 

Few people thought Bournemouth could survive in the top flight of English football for five years. 

It was great news for the town, even providing a boost for the local economy. 

Fans hope it will happen again with more support for the manager.
