AFC Bournemouth: Prized assets will be staying put vows Howe

Bournemouth Echo: STAR MAN: Eunan O'Kane STAR MAN: Eunan O'Kane

MANAGER Eddie Howe has sounded out a defiant message to any would-be suitors of Cherries’ prized assets by telling them: “We are not a selling club.”

Howe was speaking after Matt Ritchie and Eunan O’Kane – two of the club’s star performers in recent weeks – had both netted to set up Cherries’ 3-0 win over Yeovil yesterday.

Winger Ritchie, who has been a revelation since returning last month following a lengthy injury absence, scored twice to take his personal tally to five in six starts.

Midfielder O’Kane, who has been catching the eye in a slightly deeper role, capped another impressive display by bagging his maiden goal in the Championship, a stunning individual strike.

And although the pair are two of a host of young players who could attract attention when the transfer window re-opens next week, Howe is adamant his squad will remain intact.

Howe, who has already seen defender Steve Cook linked with a number of Premier League clubs, told the Daily Echo: “I have always maintained the stance that I am pleased when other clubs recognise our players. I think it is a sign that, as a team generally, you are performing well.

“You can’t stop speculation. All you can do is say we are not a selling club now. We want to progress and move forward and, to do that, you need to keep your best players.”

Ritchie, a bargain £500,000 buy from Swindon 11 months ago, fired Cherries ahead with a thunderous drive following good work by Ryan Fraser, another shrewd acquisition by Howe last season.

And after Ritchie had doubled Cherries’ lead with a delightful lofted effort, which appeared to clip Yeovil defender Shane Duffy, O’Kane completed the scoring with a finely-taken strike.

Victory saw Cherries register back-to-back wins for the first time this season with loan goalkeeper Lee Camp keeping their first clean sheet for 14 games. It also ended a run of four home games without a triumph and left Howe’s men 10 points above the drop zone and seven shy of the play-off places.

Howe added: “I was really pleased with the first-half performance and it was a similar story to Birmingham where we had chance after chance but didn’t score. I wouldn’t say you fear the worst but you certainly think here we go again.

“Some of the football we played to create the chances was top drawer. I didn’t think we quite hit the heights of the first half in the second but we scored three goals and won the game comfortably.

“Our home results recently have been disappointing but the performances, in the main, have been very good. But you do need to get results to back that up and we did that against a very spirited and dogged Yeovil team so I was very pleased.”

There will be some clubs watching Ritchie from the premiership, no championship club can afford him. Players like Fraser and Cook are probably generating interest from some of the championship big boys, but I don't think they can meet our asking price. So good to have Denim on board and Howe in charge.

I have heard this before i.e. we are not a selling club. Rest assured every player has their price. If some premiership club offers silly money for any one of our players they wll be gone. Let's not be dellusional here. I assume that we are not stupid enough to believe anything different.
.
With reference to my post yesterday. How can it be deemed as recialist ?? The comment refered to the city in question as having a large number of residents of the islamic faith, which of course is true in the absolute, so wha is racialist about it exactly ??? No doubt their local Council is aware of this fact. This is the same as stating that Bournemouth has a large nmber of Christians living in the area. So where is the racialist connotation exactly ??
.
The answer to this point should make interestng readng.

For once I agree with smhinto whenever I read headlines like this completely the opposite happens,if players choose to move to the premiership then let them go we all know its there agents that make there decisions anyway,however if a player is sold to one of the competition in our league I would be disgruntled ,so I like many will be watching the window with interest and pray this headline is true

Dear Smhinto, let me take the bull by the horns this morning and see if i can give your usual detractors a day off,festive season as it is. To offer a balanced view of your comments let's start with paragraph two. To state the facts is indeed not racist in principle and I support your comment, however, the practice of law in this country from experience shows that you only have to call a West indian black and you are lining yourself up for prosecution.

The first paragraph now: This is indeed balanced but only from the perspective of appearing to have a chip on both shoulders. Quite what gives you the inspiration to to regard any difference to your opinion as "stupid" is as supercilious as it gets. Sir, everyone's opinions are valid, however regarding others opinion as invalid borders on ignorance.

Kind regards

This is very good to hear from the club but as always happens money talks. If a premiership club offered 2/3 million for Ritchie that would be hard to refuse and who could blame him for wantjng to play in the Premier league. It would help offset potential losses on Rantie as well although he could still come good, lets hope so. If we did sell we could buy two or three decent Championship players with the money and improve he squad but ultimatelyid prefer him to stay so work your magic please EH. Also does anyone actually know how much Demin is worth? Are we talking millions or billions?

Get off this site and leave us Cherries supporters in peace. regardless of the constant bile you repeat, you basically don't support the cherries and have very limited knowledge of football. Unless shitmon, you were at the game - don't comment.

We all know it, you know it.

There is renewed transfer talk this morning relating to Lallana leaving Saints in Jan transfer window. Rumours that Man Utd are lining up a £15 million bid. This could be great news for the Cherries with the club, I believe, getting a 25% sell-on clause. If I am wrong I apologise in advance.

I don't think Demin's wealth matters, it's the amount he is prepared to put into his "hobby" that does. But he is only one of several very rich men on the Board these days. I certainly hope that the Club is able to "hang on" to it's better players, but as we all know it's hard to deny them the opportunity to play at a higher level, if the chance occurs, at least there is no need to sell and we may even strengthen the squad., especially if there is a winndfall should Adam Llana move to Manchester United, as is rumoured. Interesting times though.

If the Man Us the Chelseas and Liverpools of this world sell and buy players who says that AFCB will not do likewise if another club is willing topay over the odds for one or more of our players. There is a business side to the game after all, and anyone with the minutest football sense would understand that EH is hardly going to say 'here they are come and get them'.

Stating a fact is one thing stating in a way which leaves room for misinterpretation or derogatory way is best if it is not stated at all.

Why do people think that offering 2/3mil for Ritchie will do. No it won't. Tom Ince has had offers floating around the 7/8 mil mark. That is more where i'm hoping for. No championship club(maybe QPR) will be able to afford him as his price will go up if we are selling to rivals. So if we get 7/8 mill we can find a v good replacement.

I do so hope that we will be able to hold onto our current squad at least until the end of this season. We are just starting to see how they can play when Eddie has the availability of most of our top players, not with half of them out injured. With our current players we should be able to establish ourselves securely in mid-table, perhaps even just below the play-off places, and then be able to attack next season from a more secure and experienced based.
This is just my humble opinion, of course, what does a mere 70-yr old female know about foutball !!!

Thank you for that, nonno. I've only recently felt brave enough to add my comments on-line but have read others' comments eagerly for the last couple of seasons. I honestly cannot agree with a lot of the comments I read but there are about half-a-dozen commenters, including yourself, that I always take notice of because they seem to me to make sense.
Anyway, looking forward to Sunday's game, hoping we can finish off the year in style :-)

Basically I agree with you
Nonno what are you like, is it an age thing ?? :)
Of that I have no doubt!!!

It took me half an hour to type the above post this morning as I was using my 'soon to be' feet warmer laptop!!! It would have been quicker if I went to the Echo and handed in a hard copy!!!

I gave up half way and cut short my post the second paragraph was intended for our dear friend 'Kermit'. He certainly know how to throw in a stink bomb and run doesn't he!!!

I know what my New Year resolution is going to be and I hope the rest on here will follow suit and starve him of the oxygen that flames some of his worst postings/comments.UT

The change to our position is purely that we no longer have to sell anyone. Clubs would have to pay over the odds to lure anyone away and we would only remotely consider clubs in the top flight. This is such a lovely position to be in, considering our past.
I'm sure there are players which Eddie would welcome offers for, those who have little or no prospect of playing for us again. We are seeing the results of a more settled team and obviously Eddie will endeavour to maintain that.

As for the 'Lincoln based Prophet' and his 'Bradford' comments. I never saw them before they were deleted, but that is irrelevant. The subject on which he posted was the match result between AFCB and Yeovil. What has any reference to Bradford got to do with that? If he were scouting once more for Lincoln or Boston or whoever, and it happened to be at Valley Parade, it has nothing to do with our team or yesterday's match. In the end, who actually cares?

Up the Cherries!

If we did sell we could buy two or three decent Championship players with the money and improve he squad but ultimatelyid prefer him to stay so work your magic please EH. Also does anyone actually know how much Demin is worth? Are we talking millions or billions?
Cut our losses on rantie and loan him out . He just isn't good enough for the championship . He looks totally lost . Yesterday when he came on he was just running around like a headless chicken . Speed is all that he's got . No footballing brain what so ever ...

Nat1234 I think you have been very unfair on Rantie. If you expect him to collect the ball from our own half and run with it until he scores than yes he has failed. Yesterday he came on with only few minutes left and at no point he got a decent pass at least not a pass that he could do anything with other than pass it back to someone else.

I may be totally wrong but I get the feeling that there is a reluctance to give him the ball in a meaningful way. One game in question was the Birmingham game on at least three occasions Pitman chose to shoot when a pass to Rantie might have produced a scoring chance.

For all that is worth I would prefer to give him more time.

Rantie has got something, but I don't think he really fits in with how we play, if we continue to play one up front (Grabbon) then where else does he play and at the expense if whom, in my opinion he needs to play with a big man up front and as we havnt got one at the moment that ain't an option, I've said before on here that I would love to see Leon Clarke here, he has got all the attributes of a number 9, quick, powerful, good in the air and definatly knows where the goal is. If Grabbon were to get injured we are very weak up front

Thank you for that, nonno. I've only recently felt brave enough to add my comments on-line but have read others' comments eagerly for the last couple of seasons. I honestly cannot agree with a lot of the comments I read but there are about half-a-dozen commenters, including yourself, that I always take notice of because they seem to me to make sense.
Anyway, looking forward to Sunday's game, hoping we can finish off the year in style :-)

Spot on Nonno!! Some people wouldn't know quality if it came up and bit them. It may well be that Rantie doesn't fit the way we play, but then for once, I'd blame Eddie, because why buy a player who doesn't fit??? I'm hoping, Eddie brings in a striker who will actually compliment TK, and THEN we'll see a different player!! UTCIAD

Rantie has got something, but I don't think he really fits in with how we play, if we continue to play one up front (Grabbon) then where else does he play and at the expense if whom, in my opinion he needs to play with a big man up front and as we havnt got one at the moment that ain't an option, I've said before on here that I would love to see Leon Clarke here, he has got all the attributes of a number 9, quick, powerful, good in the air and definatly knows where the goal is. If Grabbon were to get injured we are very weak up front
So you mean Howe bought a player for 2 mill and doesnt know how to use him.TK is off to Africa in january for a month, im sure Howe knows this, that i why he hasnt been starting. Pugh and Pitman dont get in the team now because he found out they aint good enough in the Championship.
Now where has that stone gone?

Maybe Pugh and Pitman are good enough for the championship, maybe and here's a thought, perhaps Fraser is better than Pugh and Grabbon is better than Pitman, just like maybe McDonald is good enough but Arter and Okane are better, from what we have seen so far of TK of course he doesn't start, if we had been flying and winning more games then yes I would of stuck with him and given him more games but we didn't have that luxury, it won't do TK any harm sitting on the bench and hopefully starting the cup game ( not sure when he goes to African cup ) sometimes it don't matter how much you pay it doesn't work out and sometimes you get a free transfer and it turns into one of the best signings you can get, I think he will come good but think it more likely to be next season

Thank you for that, nonno. I've only recently felt brave enough to add my comments on-line but have read others' comments eagerly for the last couple of seasons. I honestly cannot agree with a lot of the comments I read but there are about half-a-dozen commenters, including yourself, that I always take notice of because they seem to me to make sense.
Anyway, looking forward to Sunday's game, hoping we can finish off the year in style :-)
An Italien making sense, thats a joke.
Only a joke Nonno.

Nat1234 I think you have been very unfair on Rantie. If you expect him to collect the ball from our own half and run with it until he scores than yes he has failed. Yesterday he came on with only few minutes left and at no point he got a decent pass at least not a pass that he could do anything with other than pass it back to someone else.

I may be totally wrong but I get the feeling that there is a reluctance to give him the ball in a meaningful way. One game in question was the Birmingham game on at least three occasions Pitman chose to shoot when a pass to Rantie might have produced a scoring chance.

For all that is worth I would prefer to give him more time.
Rantie has got something, but I don't think he really fits in with how we play, if we continue to play one up front (Grabbon) then where else does he play and at the expense if whom, in my opinion he needs to play with a big man up front and as we havnt got one at the moment that ain't an option, I've said before on here that I would love to see Leon Clarke here, he has got all the attributes of a number 9, quick, powerful, good in the air and definatly knows where the goal is. If Grabbon were to get injured we are very weak up front
So you mean Howe bought a player for 2 mill and doesnt know how to use him.TK is off to Africa in january for a month, im sure Howe knows this, that i why he hasnt been starting. Pugh and Pitman dont get in the team now because he found out they aint good enough in the Championship.

Rantie has got something, but I don't think he really fits in with how we play, if we continue to play one up front (Grabbon) then where else does he play and at the expense if whom, in my opinion he needs to play with a big man up front and as we havnt got one at the moment that ain't an option, I've said before on here that I would love to see Leon Clarke here, he has got all the attributes of a number 9, quick, powerful, good in the air and definatly knows where the goal is.

Maybe Pugh and Pitman are good enough for the championship, maybe and here's a thought, perhaps Fraser is better than Pugh and Grabbon is better than Pitman, just like maybe McDonald is good enough but Arter and Okane are better, from what we have seen so far of TK of course he doesn't start, if we had been flying and winning more games then yes I would of stuck with him and given him more games but we didn't have that luxury, it won't do TK any harm sitting on the bench and hopefully starting the cup game ( not sure when he goes to African cup ) sometimes it don't matter how much you pay it doesn't work out and sometimes you get a free transfer and it turns into one of the best signings you can get, I think he will come good but think it more likely to be next season
Nice post,its great to have so many irons in the fire, but i would love to see TK and Grabben playin up front. but not so wide.

Crucial that we don't lose Ritchie in the window. Imagine how good we would have been with him fit all season. A lot players need to go though because Eddie built the squad at Burnley and look how good it is now.
Jalal, Addison, Harte, Fogden, Partington, Hughes, McDermott, Tubbs, Thomas all need to be shipped out. Possibly Pitman to however think he will stay as he can be a threat.
Camp, Allsop, Flahavan, Francis, Elphick, Cook, Daniels, Ritchie, OKane, Arter, MacDonald, Surman, Coulibaly,Fraser, Pugh, McQuoid, Rantie, Grabban, Pitman with a few additions will make a good strong squad.

Yeah, works very hard and a good player to have, however is that enough to keep him as a squad player? Not going to get a game on the wings, however I wonder if he could be converted to a right back and provide cover for Francis?

Cannot agree about keeping pitman or Mcqoid, also unsure of alsop and Flahaven, without those four in squad we have basis of championship team.
Still cannot understand why Thomas hasn't been given much chance, paired with Grabban in opening game against Charlton I thought they looked our most potent strike force, also still believe Tokoloshe will come good eventually even though he is on the small side.

theres no way ritchie will go for less than 5m. peterbrough sold that nobody for 8 mill in the summer and they are a small club in league one and they dnt have maxim denim. enjoy these glory days, we deserve them having suffered for decades of having to sell all our players and never reaching our potential as a club

Can't agree with that. Carlton Palmer used to get picked for England on a regular basis when Graham Taylor was manager.
