AFC Bournemouth: Howe monitoring Morrissey developments

Bournemouth Echo: BOSS: Eddie Howe BOSS: Eddie Howe

CHERRIES boss Eddie Howe may pursue his interest in Cork City striker Danny Morrissey once the transfer window has reopened next month.

Morrissey returned to Ireland today after training with Howe’s squad and scoring in a reserve team friendly against a star-studded QPR line-up.

The 20-year-old, who has also been linked with Cherries’ Championship rivals Huddersfield, was invited to extend his stay at Dean Court after impressing Howe and his staff.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “We have had a good look and we certainly like him.

“He is a good player and a very good finisher. He did well in the reserve game.

“He scored, worked incredibly hard and showed some good touches. He has gone back to Ireland so we will wait and see what happens.”

A pacy forward, Morrissey has already drawn comparisons with Republic of Ireland and West Brom striker Shane Long who was plucked by Reading from Cork City in 2005.

Surely we don't need another untried striker? We are already awash with strikers that can't cut the mustard at Championship level.

Tall, Fat, Slim, Short, one legged etc. means nothing unless they come with the intention to give 100% and are skilled enough and wants to be a team player. If you watched the Birmingham game you will have noticed that their 'Tall' striker did not help them their goals came from silly defense mistakes.

Very commedable that Mr Howe is looking at he striker deparment. However, Morissey is nott what we require at the moment.
.
In an ideal world we need someone who is tried and tested at this level.
.
The down side of this is that such people usually comand high transfer fees and wages and the fact that everyelse is aways looking for strikers.
.
At the moment I would be tempted to play both Thomas and Rantie up front together.

Danny Morrissey
Position: Forward
Date of Birth: December 13th, 1993
Height: cm
Weight: 70 kg
Place of birth: Cork
Nationality: Irish
Previous clubs: Midleton
Goals 8 in 10
A pacey forward with bags of potential, the 19-year-old played local football with East Cork side Midleton before joining the Cork City youth setup.
Danny enjoyed an excellent 2011/12 campaign for the club’s League and Cup-winning Under 19′s side, earning himself a call-up to the Ireland Under 19 squad.
Irish Mirror says "Huddersfield boss Mark Robins is ready to swoop for Cork City's highly-rated young hit man Danny Morrissey.
Morrissey was on target for City in last night's win over Shelbourne.
Robins sent top spy Ross Wilson to watch the teenager net for the club and is poised to make a six-figure offer.
Cork need the cash and will sell Morrissey shortly, with just two league games left of the season and the club needing extra revenue.
The Terriers would bring in Morrissey for training ahead of being able to play him when the window re-opens in January."

Well that's OK then.........

If he is a talent, then bring him in view of being ready next season. Does the words Charlie Austin, Ian Wright or Shane Long mean anything?.....

If the price is right then we would be stupid to pass up on the opportunity.

I am all for signing young and hungry players, but I would not want to see another young player brought in only to be sent on loan and end up ditched without having a chance
