AFC Bournemouth: Cherries play down Mason bid rumours

CHERRIES BOSS: Eddie Howe

CHERRIES BOSS: Eddie Howe

First published in Sport Bournemouth Echo: Photograph of the Author by

CHERRIES have quashed speculation linking them with a move for highly-rated Cardiff City striker Joe Mason.

Rumours the former Plymouth youngster could be on his way to Dean Court first surfaced earlier this week.

And reports in some of today’s national newspapers suggested Cherries had tabled a £2million bid for Mason.

The Sunday People claimed Mason would be cleared to speak to Eddie Howe after new Bluebirds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had accepted the offer.

However, Cherries have responded by confirming to the Daily Echo that no official bid has been made for the Republic of Ireland under-21 international.

Mason, who was linked with a loan move to Dean Court in the summer, has been attracting interest from Brighton who had been hoping to sign Cherries striker Lewis Grabban.

He helped Cardiff to the Championship title and promotion last season and was their young player of the year in 2011-12 when he scored in the League Cup final against Liverpool at Wembley.

Mason, a £250,000 signing from Plymouth in 2011, recently returned to Cardiff after making eight appearances during a loan spell at Bolton.

Trotters boss Dougie Freedman is understood to be keen to take Mason back to the Reebok on loan and may make a move after Bolton have met Cardiff in the FA Cup.

Of cause we won't sign him . He's a striker . Eddie seems like he wants to stick with what he's got . Those prolific goal scorers , so why should he look for another one ..

you could also argue, he's only 5'10", but then so was a certain Ted Mac!! Of more interest to me, besides of cause that he's Eddie's choice, is the fact I've read many comments from Cardiff fans, who would be disappointed to see him go, and that for me speaks volumes!!
As far as Brayford and the lad from Wolves, who's name eludes me now, both would be excellent signings, but would Eddie buy two strikers now Grabb's has signed a new contract??

From a friend who is a Cardiff fan..."rate him as do many others,shows great potential,good eye for goal and finding space,possibly a bit lightweight which maybe held him back for us".

Is it not probable that EH was showing a genuine interest in Mason and others when Grabs decided to negotiate with Brighton but decided better to stick with what you know and when was successful in keeping Grabs stopped conversations with Cardiff hence the latest statement that no offer made. Interesting that Eddie prefers a £1.1mil rated striker over a striker said to be worth over £1.5mil. Perhaps he also new his goals to game ratio as stated by curryandstella above! Presumably Eddie has demanded that if there is a release clause it is now 2mil plus.

It seems to me that the opposition scouts are sending back serious fear vibes when teams come to Dean Court, everyone is thrown behind the ball defending like mad, so we could field three strikers and it won't make an ounce of difference,

The old adage states - Don't believe anything until it is officialy denied. i.e. the club are dismissing it, so it is more than likely true.

Mason is a useful player, very energetic and a bit of a bully - However, he is not worth anywhere near the amount we are rumoured to have offered.
.
I rate Rantie and I belive we will see the best of him as he matures to the English game, but we have paid far too much or him also. We also overpaid or Tubbs.
.
For the alledged money tabled there is a lot better out there for ones money. The problem is - trying the persuade them to come to Bournemouth. at a difficult stage in the season wheree contracts are concerned. The prices are always inflated at this time of the season.
.
It is reassuring to know the Eddie is on the case so there is little to moan about apart from speeding the process up.

Your reponse above merely highlights what a complete thick idiot you are and that your head consists of nothing more than re-inforced concrete.
.
I have seen Mason play on no less that seven occasions. There is nothing libellous about refering to him as a 'bully'. I intended that comment in footballing terms i.e. he is aggressive in his play, perhaps that is what we need. The term 'bully' if anything, is a compliment.
.
Secondly, how would you know if I had seen Rantie play or not ? He was sought after by a number of clubs and footage of his abilities were well publised amongst the scouting faternity.
.
Thirdly, the reason I cannot see many AFCB games is simply because I am often despatched to watch other games that strangely enough kick off at the same time as AFCB. So short of cloning myself I am unable to attend many of our games. The fact that you disbelieve my assessing activites matters not and quite frankly I don't give a s..t .
.
Finally. I am sent to games in all division ranging fromn the Premier right down to the Ford Second Hand Spare Part Premier Division and below!
.
I only thing I will admit to is my spelling wihch is more often than not down to literal ldleness due to being at work and not having time to correct any keyboard mis-haps. This is not the Gettysburg Address or a thesis on nuclear fusion. It is a newspaper forum of which spelling is of little importance. Just for the record - Yes I do have a degree in English, the fact that you think it is 'bulls..t matters not as far as I am concerned.
.
So the lesson to be learnt here is engage brain before opening mouth.

You rate Rantie yet you have never seen him play or attended any games. Absolute top trolling! You clearly are a man of many talents and undoubtedly a genius. So why are you wasted going to watch div 2 games and supposedly scouting in the lower leagues. Or is the scouting thing just more of your troll bulls**t, like your “I have a degree in English” statement yet you cannot spell believe and your use of one/one’s' is just ridiculous.
Your reponse above merely highlights what a complete thick idiot you are and that your head consists of nothing more than re-inforced concrete. . I have seen Mason play on no less that seven occasions. There is nothing libellous about refering to him as a 'bully'. I intended that comment in footballing terms i.e. he is aggressive in his play, perhaps that is what we need. The term 'bully' if anything, is a compliment. . Secondly, how would you know if I had seen Rantie play or not ? He was sought after by a number of clubs and footage of his abilities were well publised amongst the scouting faternity. . Thirdly, the reason I cannot see many AFCB games is simply because I am often despatched to watch other games that strangely enough kick off at the same time as AFCB. So short of cloning myself I am unable to attend many of our games. The fact that you disbelieve my assessing activites matters not and quite frankly I don't give a s..t . . Finally. I am sent to games in all division ranging fromn the Premier right down to the Ford Second Hand Spare Part Premier Division and below! . I only thing I will admit to is my spelling wihch is more often than not down to literal ldleness due to being at work and not having time to correct any keyboard mis-haps. This is not the Gettysburg Address or a thesis on nuclear fusion. It is a newspaper forum of which spelling is of little importance. Just for the record - Yes I do have a degree in English, the fact that you think it is 'bulls..t matters not as far as I am concerned. . So the lesson to be learnt here is engage brain before opening mouth. . Good day to you
I cannot begin to tell you how delighted I am that you are annoyed. Now you know what everybody else on here feels when they read your Sh*t comments. I love how intelligent you are in that you have to resort to name calling and pretty childish ones at that. You truly are pathetic.
So I am right, you have not seen Rantie play just watched the You Tube video everybody else has.
It's not many AFCB games, it's none at all yet you feel everybody should share your negative sh*t views.
You do clone yourself i.e. you are also holdencraft, ianbthompson & I am pretty sure you are also mike oxbig, true troll behaviour.
You do not have a degree you only have to look at the above to tell this. For example engage brain before opening mouth, I’m typing stupid, not talking. The true lesson to be learnt is why don't you just F88k off and leave this board to the real fans and stop trying to get pathetic little kicks.

On the contrarary, I am not annoyed at all, more frustrated than anything. In addition, there is nothing s..t about my posts or comments. It is merely because you refuse to see what is in front of you and only wish to see the positives and not any alternate points of vew.
.
The problem with large numbers of people on here including yourself I would say, is that they point blank refused to accept reality and hard fact. Nearly on every occasion when someone mentions something which is anywhere near the actual truth of any given matter it attracts a minus rating and a baracking sayng that it is negative- WHY IS THAT.??
.
There are far too many people walking around with rose tinted glasses and refuse to see what is staring them in the face i.e. everyting must be positive, nice and rosey and nobody must say anything that is negative even though it might be true. What a stupid concept.
.
My post last week referred to the fact that we have no options in the final third and have no options on the bench to change anything. This is true and look what happened, I was chastised for pointing out reality. SO WHAT IS S..T ABOUT POINTING THIS OUT EXACTLY ??
.
Mr Oxbigs post Saturdays match report thread at 5:18pm is true and factual yet it has attracted a minus 50 odd for pointing out a true fact. WHY!!
.
What is the matter with you ?. You leave me in despair.
.
I have every faith in Eddie and his team. But we all have the right to point out perceived shortfalls. I have no doubt Eddie is trying to do something about it, but until he does our erratic form will carry us closer to the relegation places. AGAIN THIS IS FACT unless the problem is addresed.
.
Just for the record I am not pathetic at all. I just deal in realism.
.
I bid you a good evening.

Masons stats are awful! I really hope we don't sign him for 2 mill'. He'd be worth a gamble if he was a free transfer. Still EH knows best, remember he tried bringing Vokes and Ings in the summer, I thought they were over rated, but they shut me up this season
