AFC Bournemouth: Striker Matt Tubbs makes season-long loan switch to AFC Wimbledon

Bournemouth Echo: LOANED: Matt Tubbs LOANED: Matt Tubbs

CHERRIES striker Matt Tubbs has joined AFC Wimbledon on a season-long loan.

The 29-year-old turned down a return to Crawley Town in favour of a switch to Neal Ardley’s League Two side.

Crawley had agreed a deal with Cherries to sign Tubbs on a permanent basis a month ago, but the Verwood-raised forward was cool on the prospect of a return.

The former Salisbury City man spent the second half of last season on loan at the Broadfield Stadium, scoring eight goals in 18 League One appearances.

He had previously spent six months at Rotherham, where he netted just once in 21 outings.

Mudeford resident Tubbs has one year left on his contract at Dean Court and has been told he does not feature in Eddie Howe’s plans.

If he had moved permantly then he would have faced a large drop in wages. This way, we have to keep paying his inflated earnings. What a waste of money, was clearly never going to be good enough even for league one.

its not the lads fault he is on inflated earnings, the blame should be placed at the people who put him on those wages only to be dicarded and told he does not fit into the managers plans, in your working career how would you like to have been in that position?

Oh dear seems like we can not get rid of this shower of s...e. any other trade we could say your not good enough and cancel the contract. Tubbs should do the right thing and agree a cancellation.

so if you were in his position and they cancelled your contract you would not go to a tribunal, managers are entrusted to spend any available money wisely, it must be difficult because you are dealing with human beings and it does not always work out, but in good faith you have a contract which was entered into by both parties, if the employer is going to sit you on the sidelines and practically ignore you then until you find the right move for you you accept the wages as per your contract

No wimbledon will have to pay his wages thats the loan agreement , if he went to crawley they would have paid a fee for him and he would get less wages this way wimbledon do not have to pay a fee just pay his wages and if he does well will get him on a free at the end of season!!

Surely Wimbledon will pay his wages won't they? Or at least make a decent contribution to them? I'm not sure how the system works but if he's not at AFCB should we be paying him as though he was? But what do I know?

I was delighted when we signed Matty again, but for whatever the reasons, he never has hit it off with Eddie, and we've really moved on a pace, so it was obvious Matty was never going to get a look in again. So wish him well at AFC Wimbledon!!! UTCIAD

If your face dont fit with Howe then you have no chance. If your face fits it does not matter how poor a player you are (Allslop) then you will be fine.

I too would rather see Pitman go and keep Tubbs! Him and Yann I in my opinion would be a force together. Not being funny but Tubbsy needed a run in the team and it never happened, mainly in first instance due to injury then otger players coming in limiting his chances. He knows where the goal is, out and out poacher, 18 yard box player!

Good luck Tubbsy

Only saw Tubbs play once, he came on as a sub when we were 1-0 down and as I had heard good things I was expecting to see him score.

Tubbs latched on to a through ball for a one-on-one with the keeper. He put it wide when I would have thought a top striker would have burried it.

I don't remember him doing anything else in the match after that and we ended up losing the match 2-0.

I suspect Eddie Howe is remembering those performances rather than his face not fitting. I've worked professionally with plenty of people I didn't personally get on with, so it can be done.
