Cherries: Demouge pleased to complete loan move

CHERRIES forward Frank Demouge admitted he was pleased to be back in Holland after completing his loan move away from Dean Court.

Dutch top-flight outfit Roda JC have confirmed the signing of the 30-year-old on a deal until the end of the season, as predicted by the Daily Echo on Monday.

Demouge – Cherries’ marquee summer signing – has made just two appearances during a brief stint in Dorset.

Signed on a free transfer by ex-boss Paul Groves, Demouge failed to make an impact with Cherries after penning a two-year contract.

He sustained an injury in his first training session with Cherries and missed the opening two months of the season with a knee problem.

And despite starting in defeats against Walsall and Crawley in Groves’s final matches at the helm, Demouge could not get back into the team.

The Dutchman, a proven performer in his homeland, reportedly told elfvoetbal.nl: “I can help Roda. We must quickly look up in instead of down.

“I’m happy to be back in the Netherlands. Roda is a nice club to play football.”

Roda’s general manager Marcel van den Bunder told the club’s website: “We are happy that, just before the end of the transfer period, we have added Frank to our squad.

“Frank is a Dutch boy with a lot of experience in the Eredivisie.”

Demouge was also understood to have attracted interest from Willem II and NEC and is believed to have turned down a loan move to League Two strugglers Aldershot last week.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo: “We have quality players in that position and Frank has found it difficult to get a chance to stake his claim. Due to the form of those players, he has been short of match time.

“We have watched him in training and in reserve games and don’t feel he has warranted a place ahead of the other strikers.

“With the age that Frank is, I think he has to take that into account as well. He wants to play football and I can understand that.”

Sometimes these things just don't work out, a player want's to play, not to be on the sidelines, so hope that it goes well for him back in the Netherlands. Three days left of the transfer window - it could be interesting.

Sorry Eddie mistake here Pitman came in no games for a while but you gave him first team football to get his football back and how you can put a 40 year in Fletch ahead of Demouge on the bench is a no brainer you made your mind up when you arrrived just like you did with Davids and Zubar. I hope and pray when we play MK on Saturday they dont look at our bench and see no defenders and make a be line to hit one of our defenders hard in the first 10 mins and have us play a midfielder or back 3 for 80 minutes. Pitman still a sulker and missed a easy hatrick on Saturday I appreciate the dutch duo might be on high wages but no more than the rest. looking at the player cars in the carpark on Saturday.

Dear Steady eddie
.
Just when did I state that Groves was a decent appointment exactly ??? I keep copies of all my posts and said nothing of the sort.
.
What I in fact said was if we had a choice between Bradbury and Groves then Groves would win everytime.
.
Groves's method of play probably would have worked eventually but unfortunately he ran out of time and employed a system that the players were not accustomed to. His methods may well have worked in the Championship maybe, but certainly not in League One. The diamond formation is employed by a number of clubs but one must have the players to incorporate with it.
.
However, I agree with you that he should have gone perhaps a little sooner that he did.
.
May I politely suggest that you actually read my posts therefore eliminating any mis-understandings.
.
I am now waiting to see if you or anybody else can now twist this into something that it is not
.

Eddie is putting together HIS squad. We all have a view, and I'm sorry for Frank and Lorenzo it just hasn't worked out here. We don't see them train and I'm certainly not going to criticise Eddie's decisions, but have a view like everyone. I didn't want Brett and his sulks back, but with Eddie coming home, I did hope he could bring the best out of him, as his sulky attitude was a worry. Well I think as in Brett's words he's grown up, which has been proven by being dropped for whatever reasons, but coming back into the side and getting a hat trick. Yes, ok, 2 were pens, but he still had to put the ball in the net. He also missed several other chances, and I've posted before we haven't seen the Brett that left us as yet. So it all augurs well for the future. We have Fraser to come into the side to provide even more ammunition for the likes of Brett and Lewis, I really don't know what more people want. Frank and Lorenzo don't appear to of settled into the side for reasons we don't know or even understand may be, but I certainly wish them well if they don't come back in the summer, it's a shame, I was really looking forward to them being a success...

Good luck back in Holland Frank. It's a shame it didn't work out for you here but you were signed by people with little or no football acumen who watched a YouTube video and thought you looked the part for a League One club. They were wrong and it's a shame you've had a wasted six months or so here as a result.

Unlikely as it may seem I do support you on what you did say about Paul Groves.

Yes you did say if the choice was between Bradbury and Groves you would choose Groves.

It is all water under the bridge as as as PG is concerned we just enjoy what we have at the moment as long as it lasts!!

Twist posts.???. Do you mean like when someone portrays themself as an ardent supporter but only seems to look for negatives.???.

Someone who constantly predicts anything other than a win, then back-tracks every time he gets it wrong.

Someone who predicts that the outcome of a match could result in a win or lose to either team, if not it might be a draw.

Fortunately i'm not so sad that i delve back into historic posts, nor do i cut & paste the same pathetic drivel time & time again.

I must be honest, i have only supported Afcb for a short while (30 yrs) & only watched in the region of 800- 900 games, clearly not as many as you, so i must bow to your obvious superior knowledge.
At least you managed to be polite today without insulting your fellow supporters, which should be commended. REGARDS.

Yes I am a supporter, although i see between 10 and 15 AFCB away games per season, although admittedly I am usually watching the opposition, plus about three games at home. My first game attended was I believe the 71/72 season at home to Halifax town. Since then I have been exiled in Lincolshire after serving 31 years in the Royal Air Force etc. Then decided to stay here.
.
Nor do I always portray the negatives, I just post on how things are and how I see things going, most of the time i have been proved right, contrarary to what you believe. I know because I keep the posts etc - sad is't it.
.
Nor do I backtrack when we win I most of the time post saying I got it wrong and state well done etc. I believe Mr Nonnogepetto will testify to this as he has already done so today by admitting what I said about Paul Groves tactics was in fact right etc. (READ ABOVE) Note you have not admiited that you were wrong on this issue- Just typical.

Commenting on weather a game is to be won, drawn or lost is down to your stupidiy of not actually reading the post properly and as well you know it. Most people do know what I mean except you and one or two others.

And yes I have watched considerably more than games than you from all divisions including non-league throughout the years. At the moment I am watching two games a week in a hectic period before to transfer window shuts. And yes I do have a good knowledge of the game from a scouting point of view and speak to many club managers concerning players etc.

Regarding being insultive, as far as I am concerned it is all tongue in cheek, but it is irritating when some pepole cannot see thing that are blatently obvious and mis-interpret my posts by taking them out of context, and quoting an alternative meaning to them other to what was intended.

Twist posts.???. Do you mean like when someone portrays themself as an ardent supporter but only seems to look for negatives.???. Someone who constantly predicts anything other than a win, then back-tracks every time he gets it wrong. Someone who predicts that the outcome of a match could result in a win or lose to either team, if not it might be a draw. Fortunately i'm not so sad that i delve back into historic posts, nor do i cut & paste the same pathetic drivel time & time again. I must be honest, i have only supported Afcb for a short while (30 yrs) & only watched in the region of 800- 900 games, clearly not as many as you, so i must bow to your obvious superior knowledge. At least you managed to be polite today without insulting your fellow supporters, which should be commended. REGARDS.
Yes I am a supporter, although i see between 10 and 15 AFCB away games per season, although admittedly I am usually watching the opposition, plus about three games at home. My first game attended was I believe the 71/72 season at home to Halifax town. Since then I have been exiled in Lincolshire after serving 31 years in the Royal Air Force etc. Then decided to stay here.
.
Nor do I always portray the negatives, I just post on how things are and how I see things going, most of the time i have been proved right, contrarary to what you believe. I know because I keep the posts etc - sad is't it.
.
Nor do I backtrack when we win I most of the time post saying I got it wrong and state well done etc. I believe Mr Nonnogepetto will testify to this as he has already done so today by admitting what I said about Paul Groves tactics was in fact right etc. (READ ABOVE) Note you have not admiited that you were wrong on this issue- Just typical.
.
Commenting on weather a game is to be won, drawn or lost is down to your stupidiy of not actually reading the post properly and as well you know it. Most people do know what I mean except you and one or two others.
.
And yes I have watched considerably more than games than you from all divisions including non-league throughout the years.

OK I think it is time to call it a day on this one. It is obvious to all concerned that there is more chance for the Taliban to agree to a ceasefire than some of us to accept your views at face value and to leave them there.

The least we can do is to be civil about our disagreement and if we can't argue our corner it will be equally obvious that we just back off and live with our differences.

No apologies is asked from anyone nor is there a need to result to name calling simply because we don't happen to like what other are saying.

So for the good of football and for the good of us the supporters of our beloved team let us agree to disagree and move on for the sake of a peaceful existence. Up the mighty Cherries

One person agreeing with your opinion does not make you right. I think Bradbury was better than Groves because his points per game average was higher. Someone out there probably agrees with me but that doesn't make me right. It just means I have a different opinion. Maybe if you engaged in the constructive debate you keep longing for, instead of referring to people as "thick" and "idiots" you would not get such a hostile reception on here. As a fan of AFCB my opinion is just as valid as yours, and all the other people that post on here. Everyone is entitled to their own, we just wish you would cheer up a bit. Surely with your massive knowledge of the game you can find something positive to say! I would also welcome constructive ideas on the PG or LB idea.

A helpful suggestion might be the separation of factual from ideology.

An example in question is in evidence on here today. I supported Smhinto in the factual statement that he made some time ago; however that should not be understood as agreeing or supporting the idea that Paul Groves was better than Bradbury. He obviously held that view and expressed it the way he did.

Much of his gripe with us is that we do not quote him factually or accurately and that we are quick to criticise what he says or simply disagree with what he says on the basis that he is negative.

Clearly Shminto has his views and we have ours. So far we have not been able to convert him to our way of thinking primarily I guess because we jump on him as soon as he puts his head above the parapet.

Personally I have had my spats with him and to his credit he apologised for one issue that irritated me at the time I guess until recently I refrained from making direct comments about his posts. Ultimately we all have choices and as in this case we should accept that he has as much right to post his views and it is not compulsory to argue the case with him.

By and large I agree with you. Unfortunately the gentleman in question oversteps the mark in his responces by refering to those who don't agree with him as "fools an idiots".
A little more respect all round is probably in order.

A little more respect all round is probably in order.
Primarily why I learnt to leave his posts alone.

I agree that calling others idiots etc usually shows one's own inability to communicate succinctly and to make one appear superior. (I am sorry if I sound rather pompous using one's etc)

An example in question is in evidence on here today. I supported Smhinto in the factual statement that he made some time ago; however that should not be understood as agreeing or supporting the idea that Paul Groves was better than Bradbury. He obviously held that view and expressed it the way he did. Much of his gripe with us is that we do not quote him factually or accurately and that we are quick to criticise what he says or simply disagree with what he says on the basis that he is negative. Clearly Shminto has his views and we have ours. So far we have not been able to convert him to our way of thinking primarily I guess because we jump on him as soon as he puts his head above the parapet. Personally I have had my spats with him and to his credit he apologised for one issue that irritated me at the time I guess until recently I refrained from making direct comments about his posts.

Have yet to see anything regarding Davids, in the next couple of days we will soon find out if he is out the door. It will also be very interesting now that Frank has gone just where the freed up wages will go, who does Eddie have in mind? BWP has been mantioned but can that really be true? Vokes is another name, do we really want another ex-player? I suppose we can't leave out Marv if we are going to go in that direction, with Thomas part of the deal? who knows? that's what makes this next couple of days all the more interesting, one thing is more certain than the last time Eddie was here, he's not likely to be gone by the end of the month!!

In the few moments I saw Frank, I thought he was a decent replacement for Fletch, who amazingly still gets a place on the bench and is fully expecting a new contract next season. Frank looked like a good footballer but sadly everything was against him since joining us. Looking forward to Sherringham coming back, we saw early signs of a good striker. Pitman has not been great for the opportunity he's getting in the first team and Tubbs must of dumped in EH sports bag for the way he's been overlooked!

Saw both Dutchmen in extra training and in a reserve match - just not up to it. They both had to go - so one down and one to follow. Good luck to Demouge and Davids to Barnet?

Lets have a good crowd on Saturday at MK Dons. Get behind the boys.

My god! I had almost forgotten Sheringham. Does anyone have an idea when he will be fit again? If we need a replacement for Fletch we can always get Stockley in the gym and bulk him up. He showed good potential and could be one for the future.

Must say for Frank's luck was not with him from the start, he got injured pre-season and things went downhill from then, He got fit got in the side then had a bad concussion, first half and never got back after that, wish him well back home, came here full of career ambition but wasnt to be. Its not nice in any walk of life when you make a change and things dont work ut, especially in a foreign country,

A decent replacement for Fletch ???? ha ha god who were you watching? Pitman ot been great?? 7 goals since he's been back, no of course,not great ha ha. Tubbs? who would you drop to play Tubbs. Not saying Tubs cant score goals but who would you drop? Some suporters amaze me. Relegation fodder after the first 11 games under Groves. 5th now after an 18 game unbeaten run under Howe, top scorers in our league, looking good for a play off place , yet still so called supporters question team selections!!! Unelieveable!!!

You were obviously there on Saturday when the ball had to be placed on the penalty spot and all defenders taken out of the way for Pitman to get 2 of his 3 goals and you could of scored his goal in open play. He missed the target on a number of chances and take the penalties away, his strike rate is not fantastic. Also who are you to call me a 'so called supporter', I am lucky enough to go to every game and have an opinion that differs from your rose tinted view. Get over yourself and don't be so silly, ha a a a a ha ha
