Cherries complete double swoop (updated)

Bournemouth Echo: SIGNING: Ryan Fraser SIGNING: Ryan Fraser

CHERRIES have this afternoon completed the signings of Ryan Fraser and Ryan Allsop on three-and-a-half year deals.

Winger Fraser has signed from Scottish Premier League outfit Aberdeen in a move believed to be worth an initial £300,000 and which is subject to international clearance.

The 18-year-old Scotsman is rated highly north of the border and Cherries are understood to have beaten off competition from the likes of Swansea City and Huddersfield Town for his signature.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe told the Echo: “Ryan is someone that we have watched for around a year now since he first broke into the Aberdeen team.

“We watched him when we were at Burnley and, from moving back, we continued to monitor his progress.

“He is someone that we have always liked. He has got obvious attributes - he is quick, he is direct and he is technically very good, so he is a player that really does fit our mould.

“He can also play both sides and, of course, he is young and very much a player that will develop and get better in the next few years. Hopefully, that fits with our philosophy of how we treat young players.

“I think it is an exciting signing for the club and, again, a statement of intent and ambition because there were a lot of clubs tracking him and wanting him. We are delighted that he chose to sign for us.”

Goalkeeper Allsop joins on a free transfer having left Leyton Orient on Wednesday following the expiry of a short-term deal at Brisbane Road. His move is subject to Football League clearance.

The 20-year-old former Millwall and West Brom stopper impressed Howe during Cherries’ home clash against Orient in October – the game that marked Howe’s return to Dean Court as manager.

Howe added: “Ryan is a talented young goalkeeper and has got all the attributes. He is 6ft 3ins and a very good shot-stopper and kicker.

“I know Russell Slade and Leyton Orient were very disappointed to lose him, which says something about his potential.

“He is certainly one for the future but he is also good enough to play now so he will come into the mix immediately.

“We are delighted he chose us ahead of other clubs because he had several options on the table. I don't think the chance to sign him on a free transfer would have come up again and I think he represents very good value for the football club. We felt it was too good an opportunity to turn down so we took it.”

Great news! Hope he gets 'international' clearance...!
On another topic, although many of our fans are not the greatest supporters of the Saints, I can't believe their manager has just been sacked...!

WOW what a signing and hopefully follow up with Allsop two young footballing potentials signed on the same day would be great, and really show that the Russian and Mitchell mean business. This signing has shocked many believe I have Huddersfield fans and Aberdeen Fans as friends and they all could not believe he has signed for us, I feel Howe had a massive part to play, and am a thoroughly happy cherry right now. He has been SPL young player of the month already twice this season. He is a sensational player and has bags of pace and quality, welcome to Bournemouth mate now take us into those play-off places and chase the top two........ Pugh on the left, Fraser on the right. Who needs Matt Ritchie when we got Ryan Fraser?? 300k and Swindon wanted 1.5 million for Ritchie

Superb signing. It is great news that he can play either side. We have a couple of players who can play on the right wing but no real cover if Pugh is unavailable. We clearly missed him while he was sat on the bench at the start of the last game! Now we can play Pugh and Fraser (watch out league 1 defenders) and also have another player that can cover the left side if required. That extra depth in the squad could be vital at the end of the season when nightly little injuries start to hit the squad at the end of a long hard fought season. I wonder if Eddie will switch wingers from side to side during the match to unsettle the defence as they can both play either side? I seem to remember this being effective when Pugh and Feeney were the wingers. Can't wait to see what happens.

Great couple of signings, both are future stars who can play at our level now, Jalal will feel under threat and I can see Ryan on the wing sooner rather than later so Josh who was poor Tuesday night will be fighting for his place, my only concern is the size of this squad and the money we are spending, I hope this all works out or we could be the headlines that Swindon have been this week!! Championship or bust!!

Quite frankly Bob I don't see how THIS particular post has anything to do with Adkins getting sacked, and I would say that's why the comment was made.

2 exciting singings, interesting to see how they fit in.

With 4 goalkeepers now, and 3 out of contract, I predict one of Jalal or James will be given a new contract and the other + Flahavan will leave. It will also be interesting to see how soon Allsop is put in the first team with James playing well.

With the Fraser signing, I think he will be a good player, but what does it say for McQuoid, Fogden and mostly McDermott? With Pugh holding the LM position, these 4 are fighting for one place. I predict McDermott may be ousted from his position on the bench, possibly making him available for transfer

I also wished to thank fans like yourself that have posted on our site without calling us names but seemed to be supportive of the general views of the clubs fans view. I only used the sacking of Nigel and your manager to express how stupid the deed was,. Sorry for any confussion i may of caused , it was not intended.
Good luck for the rest of the season and i hope you do gain promotion, even though your not the club i go and watch.

Jalal still has another year on his contract I believe. Flaphaven is obviously on his way out. The question mark then hangs over James who is starting... curious. I would imagine that James will either retire or have one last hurrah in the Championship.

Jalal played well against Wigan according 5live though so its curious. Obviously this kid is a prospect but he seems unnecessary in that we have numbers and quality. Obviously too good an opportunity to miss.

As for Ryan Fraser... F**k me!! What a signing!

Great signings but they will have to be and deliver the goods for more financial outlay

Regarding Jalal a good keeper who has served AFCB well but Eddie looking to the future - expect to see him and Flav gone before next season and James winding down

As for Adkins - another shocking decision similar to O'Driscoll at Forest

The Argentinian has four wins and three points clear of the bottom as his most recent achievement! Good luck Saints I think you will need it!
Great signings but they will have to be and deliver the goods for more financial outlay Regarding Jalal a good keeper who has served AFCB well but Eddie looking to the future - expect to see him and Flav gone before next season and James winding down As for Adkins - another shocking decision similar to O'Driscoll at Forest The Argentinian has four wins and three points clear of the bottom as his most recent achievement! Good luck Saints I think you will need it! Luffbracherry

Good that we've completed these two signings, I hope they both have a very successful time with us.
Where does the signing of Ryan Allsop leave Jalal, Buchel and Flahaven? On their way out I suspect.

As for the news of Adkins being sacked by Stains it doesn't surprise me. Even though he did an amazing job getting them promoted he's a lower league manager and way out of his depth at Premier League level as we've seen with their poor campaign to date and the poor signings he's made. Rodrigues and Ramirez have been hopeless (and that's from my partners boy who's a Stains fan!)

2 good signings and just for the record Hedge End Bob nobody is denying that Soton have loaned us players but so have a lot of other Teams especially Pompey who looked after us when we nearly went out of business I think as AFCBPETE says its about our signings its about our Club and what Southampton decide to do with their Manager is their Business not ours Dont suppose Saints fans would be to impressed if we used posted guff about stuff that didnt concern them on a site reporting the dismisal of their Manager
Exactly!
Us borrowing players also helps the club who loans them out in most cases.
Otherwise why do it?
I'm sick of hearing about scummers on here.
If I want to know about their club I would go on the Southampton echo forum.

Last time I looked at the definition of 'freedom of speech' people were able to express their opinion on anything and people had the choice of take it or leave it. So I find it somewhat puzzling the way some posters are treating 'edge end bob' who unlike some other Saints supporters, has been very supportive of AFCB in his comments.

Why it is necessary to be so aggressive against a fellow football supporter expressing a positive view and being complimentary?

On a more frivolous note I believe 'Pochettino' means 'very little' 'small amount' for Edge End Bob sake I hope he doesn't live up to his name!!!

And Yes I have been saying this signing is superb for us and I look forward to enjoy seeing Ryan play.

Hedge End Bob, I for one consider it a complement that a supporter from another club should take the trouble to air their views on this website. I hesitate to call it our site as it is open to comments from anyone, even the Neanderthal who invited you to depart. He does this site, and the club in general, no credit. If he can't say something constructive perhaps keeping silent would cause him less embarrassment and demonstrate he may have qualities other than those associated with pre history.

As for the new players maybe they are something of an unknown quantity, however,in the case of Ryan Fraser there are two other young and almost untried wingers who may be compared and contrasted with Ryan. Tom Ince is one, a young winger playing for Blackpool and the other, much closer in age and experience to Ryan is Raheem Sterling of Liverpool. What a prospect we have gained should he turn out to be as good or even (glass half full) better that either of the other two. Looking forward to watching the new signings develop under Eddie's stewardship.

I feel sorry for Nigel Adkins but as they say football is a result driven industry. How much better he could have done is difficult to see. Two promotions and just started to steady the ship then out the door. Just hope for the supporters sake things turn out for you

This signing sounds very exciting. Attack attack attack from all areas of the pitch. We never really replaced Feeney so this guy sounds just right. McDermott wasted his chance, so much promise but faded, great shame. Busy week for the club and we seem to be going from strength to strength, lets hope our debts are not spiralling out of control. Up the cherries!

I only used the sacking of Nigel and your manager to express how stupid the deed was,. Sorry for any confussion i may of caused , it was not intended.
Good luck for the rest of the season and i hope you do gain promotion, even though your not the club i go and watch.
Clear off, Scummer.
Hedge End Bob, I for one consider it a complement that a supporter from another club should take the trouble to air their views on this website. I hesitate to call it our site as it is open to comments from anyone, even the Neanderthal who invited you to depart. He does this site, and the club in general, no credit. If he can't say something constructive perhaps keeping silent would cause him less embarrassment and demonstrate he may have qualities other than those associated with pre history.

As for the new players maybe they are something of an unknown quantity, however,in the case of Ryan Fraser there are two other young and almost untried wingers who may be compared and contrasted with Ryan. Tom Ince is one, a young winger playing for Blackpool and the other, much closer in age and experience to Ryan is Raheem Sterling of Liverpool. What a prospect we have gained should he turn out to be as good or even (glass half full) better that either of the other two. Looking forward to watching the new signings develop under Eddie's stewardship.

I feel sorry for Nigel Adkins but as they say football is a result driven industry. How much better he could have done is difficult to see. Two promotions and just started to steady the ship then out the door. Just hope for the supporters sake things turn out for you

I just don't see what relevance Adkins departure has in relation to AFCB or this story?

Couldn't give two hoots about the Adkibs non-story.

One last try to explain the confusion. One or two AFCB fans posted on the Saints site about the sacking of N ADKINS and they could see no reason for it . I was only agreeing with them and use the sacking made by our Chairman to have as much sense as if your CHAIRMAN had come out and sacked your manager.
My post on your site was only to say well done in the transfer market and i hope they would help you get promoted.
Hope this explains, if not sorry.

Dont worry Bob, most of us recognise you as a peaceful poster on here. Dont be put off by a couple of idiots. Regarding Adkins, football never fails to amaze, does it.?????.

Born in Bournemouth for your information. Your post is indicative of low intelligence, however I will leave it there as it is obvious to anyone reading your posts getting the better of you is simple. I for one get no satisfaction besting a fool like you as it's too easy.
