AFC Bournemouth: Yann Kermorgant in a hurry to reach Premier League

Bournemouth Echo: Yann Kermorgant Yann Kermorgant

DEAN Court goal specialist Yann Kermorgant is hoping Cherries can fast-track him to the Premier League.

Kermorgant took his tally for Cherries at the venue to nine in six starts when he bagged a double in Saturday’s 4-1 win over Championship rivals Nottingham Forest.

The Frenchman, who also scored at Dean Court for former club Charlton in August, has notched 17 goals this season, his best return since he moved to England in 2009.

Kermorgant has been a key figure as Cherries have enjoyed a fruitful second half to the campaign, the striker impressing since completing a £400,000 move from the Addicks in January.

And while Eddie Howe’s men may have missed out on a place in the play-offs, Kermorgant is determined to help them go at least one better next season.

The 32-year-old said: “I am gutted and sad but we have to move on and start preparing for next season. We have seen lots of good signs and the team and squad are quite young so we can learn. We are going to finish not far from the play-offs and this is the club’s first season in the Championship for a while.

“We have to aim to better it next season. I am sure the owner will be pushing for a place in the play-offs, as will the manager and the players. We have to keep working hard. I am sure the manager has a plan and knows exactly what he is going to bring to the team to push for the play-offs.

“When I signed, it was a good challenge. With my age, I didn’t want to sign somewhere where they had a project for five or 10 years because I would have been too old at the end. I needed something quick, a push for the play offs and the Premier League as soon as possible. I heard that was the case here and the move fitted perfectly for me.”

Kermorgant’s two goals, a first-half header and a thunderous right-foot strike in stoppage time, sandwiched Lewis Grabban’s double, his second coming from the penalty spot after Marc Pugh had been felled.

However, while Cherries completed their home fixtures with a resounding victory, Brighton’s win over Yeovil on Friday effectively ended their play-off hopes due to their inferior goal difference.

Kermorgant added: “Even though the dream was gone, we wanted to finish well in front of the home fans. The final home game is the one you remember for next season so we wanted to show the quality we had in the team and it was the perfect day for us.

“I was very pleased because 17 goals is my best return in a season. If I play in a team which creates chances, I will score goals and that is exactly what has happened since I came here. If we keep playing like that I will score many more.

“I will do my best to have a good pre-season and will try to start the season well because it is very important time in terms of confidence. If Lewis and myself keep working well, we can both score goals. The manager and owner will do their best to keep Lewis because he is a big part of the squad.

“I know the owner maybe has the money to bring in good players but, at the same time, I know the manager will not make silly transfers and will be clever and bring in one, two or three good additions to make the squad even better.”

I was at derby and as frustrated as you but it's all to easy to blame decisions on one game. What people forget is that other teams will no doubt have games where decisions have also cost their sides.
We don't analyse other sides games so we can't say that decision has cost us because teams behind us could say they had 2 games where decisions cost their teams points.
I'm not too disappointed we havnt made the play offs as this league is great and our stadium is too small for premier league.
There are rumours of a potential 25000 stadium in the pipeline though.

Sorry to say this to a fellow fan, but that's a load of twaddle. Our league position is well above expectations for the season and even getting into the playoffs is no guarantee of getting to the Premier League. It's simply a case of us having to get used to a higher standard of football in the early part of the season when we did ship in a lot of goals. We now have an excellent platform to build from for next season, but to refer our situation back to one refereeing decision is nonsense.

I think he's saying that if we had got a point in the Derby game we would be on 67 now and have the possibility of achieving 70 after the Millwall game.

Still plenty of if onlys this season and in previous seasons and no doubt in seasons to come.

You can try and shift the blame and choose many different subjects to be the reason for missing out. I am glad you haven't used any players to point the finger of blame at.
Just enjoy the progress made this year in what has seen us perform way above any expectations.
I am already looking forward to next season before this one is over.

I haven't seen that much in the way of better players (outside maybe Leics/Derby/Burnley) down at DC this season to improve on what we have. Some players have had good games against us, but they are inconsistent over the season. In terms of new signings, therefore, given the success of Yann and Camp - in Eddie and Jason we trust !

Surely the 65 times your keeper had to bend down and pick the ball out of the net is what cost you a place in the playoffs?
Playoffs weren't our aim this year. Consolidate and build our team and finish mid table were the agenda: achieved and surpassed. Weren't you aiming for Europe this season....? :-)

You can try and shift the blame and choose many different subjects to be the reason for missing out. I am glad you haven't used any players to point the finger of blame at.
Just enjoy the progress made this year in what has seen us perform way above any expectations.
I am already looking forward to next season before this one is over.
When do the season tickets go on sale?
I most certainly do not point any blame at any of our players or management team they have all surpassed all expectations this season ,come on let's face it who honestly in there heart of hearts thought we would be toying with the playoffs in a way a disappointment as we failed to reach them ,however three points still to play for we have all ready beaten our points tally in this league ,all to play for to give us our highest ever league finish not bad for a side who for a few where down by Xmas where are these people now ?

Of which 24 in 11 games can be attributed to a young, inexperienced keeper(Alsop). 3 in 2 games conceded by a loan keeper(Henderson), so that leaves 38 in 32 games from our current incumbent Camp.
Your keeper has shipped 45 in 36 games so far, which i guess is the reason you won't be playing in Europe next season, as you were predicting earlier in the season.
The point is, we know that we have over-achieved this season, whereas you deluded mugs can't accept that you are just a very average mid table team.Europe lol :-)))
Can you get your owner to make out the 5m cheque payable to Afc Bournemouth for the immenant sale of Lalana.. Easy money.!!!

Dorset blues is a sad little wind up merchant.. It's the only place he gets attention apart from when down the dockside. Chin up, pompey might win the mrs.miggins cup next season.

Yep agree.

I saw some pigs fly over Boscombe East this afternoon does that mean that OXBOG has made contact and brought around the dosh for the season ticket!! Personally I think he may well be contemplating investing that money and buy Poopey with it because last time I heard the club and the whole team was being offered on Ebay starting bid .99p

Mid table? I think you will find we are 8th, and there are more than 16 teams in the prem. The reason we didn't quite make Europe was because we chucked away 18 points from winning positions, more than any other team.

See what i mean about delusional.
No, the reason you missed out on Europe by quite a fair margin is because there happens to be at least 7 better teams in the league, so no excuses please.
You got lucky this season, but the real test of your greatness will come next season after the defection of Poxyteamo, and your best players finally getting some ambition.
