AFC Bournemouth: Eddie Howe lays down gauntlet to Cherries strikers after Lewis Grabban exit

Bournemouth Echo: CHALLENGE: Eddie Howe CHALLENGE: Eddie Howe

CHERRIES boss Eddie Howe has challenged his strikers to plug the gap left by Lewis Grabban after the 22-goal hitman departed for Norwich City.

The Dean Court boss believes the club’s existing forwards should see Grabban’s exit as an ideal opportunity to stake a claim for a place in the 2014-15 starting line-up.

Transfer window recruit Yann Kermorgant gave a string of impressive performances at the end of last season, keeping club record signing Tokelo Rantie and Brett Pitman on the fringes.

However, Howe says every player in the current squad has a role to play and insists Cherries can emerge a better side in 2014-15, despite losing one of their star performers.

“Sometimes these things can make you stronger and that’s certainly how we are looking at it,” said Howe.

“Unless you are Real Madrid or Barcelona, there is always a fear you are going to lose your best players and we’ve always historically had this issue.

“However, we have always managed to find replacements, or brought players from within who have come in and done a very good job.

“Now the door opens for the likes of Tokelo Rantie, Brett Pitman and Josh McQuoid who are already here and, of course, we have the transfer market as well.

“From our perspective we are very positive, we feel we've got a really good squad and we feel if we can make some quality additions we can be stronger than we were last year.”

Former Newcastle and Everton midfielder Dan Gosling is Howe’s only summer signing to date, but the manager says he is more than content to bide his time.

And Howe says that patience will be crucial in a market that is “quite quiet”.

“We’ve got irons in the fire,” he said. “We have targets in mind and we are working hard to try and secure those targets.

“It may well be that we have to be patient this summer, just due to the players we have identified and their situations, and the market itself is quite quiet.

“We are quite prepared to go into pre-season being patient and, hopefully, get the additions we want before the season kicks off.”

Well, it's the morning after the day before and I don't feel too bad about Grabbs going. A hard worker and a real professional but as someone mentioned yesterday never really bonded with the fans. EH of course is right TK, Brett & Josh really do have a big opportunity know to make their mark or forever hold their peace. I must say it would be great if one or more of them could step up, always a preferred option, we will have to see.

I don't mention Yann, as for me he is straight on the the team sheet, it shows how the other guys have fallen back, he wasnt a mega-bucks signing and if they've got what it takes they really need to start showing it now or get on their way.

Who is best paired with Yann? I would have thought TK or maybe McQoid as we'll miss Grabbs pace, however Brett is a wily striker who never had too much game time last year. I can't call it so am fortunately going to have to leave it to EH to make the decision or get the cheque book out.

Good morning Ted I see that nothing has changed on here. You make a decent comment and observations and you get a thumbs down I can only put it down to the fact that you dared to mention TK.

Just returned from Lake Como so I haven't been reading some of the news but like you I am not that gutted that Grabban has left us for pastures anew I wish him all the very best. I think that there are only a handful of Steve Gerrards in our football league who remain loyal to their club but I guess we would all do the same given the chance.

You are also right about our strikers to step up and show what they can do I hope they will. UTCIAD

Not too bothered about Grabban going as the reason he had such a good second half of last season was Kermorgant. Previous to Yann coming in Grabban's goals were mainly scored from the penalty spot. If he doesn't have a player alongside him like Yann he will not score as freely as he did. I think Yann will be the ideal player to bring Rantie on. Rantie's speed will worry defenders and with the confidence he will gain from playing alongside Yann that could be a really good partnership. Personally I don't think Pitman or McQouid are up to championship level, it would be better to let them go and get in a fresh pair of legs. 3 million for Grabban is an excellent bit of work by Eddie Howe.

We don't have anyone with the pace and physical presence of Grabs, Rantie will be fresh and has pace but is a lightweight, we know Bretts game and can only hope that Stockley and McQuoid realize their potential and step up but it does mean a change of tactics to accomodate them. Let's hope that Eddie is successful in bringing in the players he wants. I suspect that we may get a lower League striker who will need time to adjust a playing in a higher league, but Eddie is a past master at "pulling a rabbit out of the hat" and it will be interesting to see who is brought in.

I was not expecting Eddie to say that !......was hoping he announce the signing of some young talent for £2m plus....I do think we need a striker to replace Grabbs, will not mention any names but I do not think our record signing will score enough to ensure another exciting season.

Agree Yan is the man...sad though as he went on record to say just how good his partnership with Grabbs was, but heyho, that`s football.

Unless Jeff M sorts out something about FFP at the latest meeting this weekend I expect we'll have a story over the next few days about how our present strikers will HAVE to step up to the mark because we can't afford any more transfers this summer unless we want to take a hit of points deduction. Meaning we'll have to use this money to pay off debts.

I understand this but its just an example of how unfair "fair" play is given the parachute payment system.

Morning troops, well as you all say its not really the response that you would have expected from Eddy but reading between the lines he has targets in mind and has had for some time.

I think he is just being diplomatic and basically giving a message to certain players, T K and Josh because for me Pitmann is a spent force in this league and in my opinion Yan does not have anything to prove to anyone.

In all fairness TK has really got to start hitting the target because he can obviously play and has lightening pace, he needs to go to finishing school ha ha.

Eddy knows what he is doing and all we can do is second guess but I will be there front and center every game of the season WHATEVER TEAM THEY TURN OUT.

3 million for Grabban is good business by Eddie. True I never felt he bonded with the fans, but I think he always gave 100% and we will miss his workrate. Hopefully Eddie can play a blinder in the transfer market as apart from yann and hopefully tk, other options not up to championship standard.

Hierarchy on the South Coast Explained
Posted on June 5, 2014 by georgeweahscousin
With today’s announcement of pre-season friendlies for Saints at both Bournemouth and Brighton, the usual ‘banter’ broke out on Social Media about South Coast supremacy.

It got me thinking. The relationships between the clubs on the South Coast are complicated and have a completely different outlook depended on which beach you choose to sunbathe. I thought I would write this blog post as a way of explaining to outsiders of our beautiful coastal wonderland just how relationships work and I thought I would do this through the medium of the popular kid’s TV show ‘Game of Thrones’.

If you’ve not seen Game of Thrones, it is about several houses of people living within close proximity in the fantasy realm of Westeros and relationships are strained to say the least…..

So where do the clubs of the South Coast sit in terms of hierarchy? I think this should clear it up.

I’ll start at the bottom.

Pompey. Pompey are Theon Greyjoy. To start with he was prosperous, but it was on the back of another house’s fortune. While things were going well his dick was well and truly overused and now it’s been cut off. At his lowest ebb now and the least threat of the entire kingdom. Fancies his sister. Hates the Lannisters.

Brighton. Brighton are House Tully. They’re in it, but no one really knows why. Slightly detached geographically from the rest and with little to no role to play in the grand scheme of things. Hates the Lannisters.

Bournemouth. Bournemouth are House Stark. Plucky, everyone’s favourite but ultimately toothless. Hates the Lannisters.

Southampton. Southampton are House Lannister. Hated by everybody else but without doubt the top dog. Sitting on the Iron Throne they draw venom from all of their neighbours.

I wouldn't mind seeing Matt Richie tried in a striker role in some of the friendlies. He works hard, great touch, knows where the goal is and think he could work very well with Yan. Don't think we would be short of cover in midfield if it worked out either.

Just a thought , but does anyone think playing Mohammed Coubilly alongside Yann as replacement too Grabban would work ?
Very good point think Mo C has what it takes to step up and fill the Grabs void we mustn't forget it took time for Grabban to click, and as an astute poster mentioned he was noticed and watched by the bigger club scouts when he excelled in partnership with Yann. So have every confidence Mo or TK can fill that roll.
On a slightly different tack any news of ground expansion as ST sales seem to be doing well that leaves fewer spare seats for the loyal fans that are non ST's .
