Barnard desperate to chip in for free-scoring Cherries

Bournemouth Echo: LOANEE: Lee Barnard is staying with Cherries until January LOANEE: Lee Barnard is staying with Cherries until January

LEE Barnard admits he is desperate to contribute more to the Cherries goal fest but knows sticking to the team ethos must be his first priority.

Loan star Barnard has netted four times in 14 league appearances since joining Cherries from Southampton on the eve of the start of the season.

The 28-year-old opened his account with an equaliser at Portsmouth in Cherries’ League One curtain-raiser and also scored at Sheffield United, Crawley and Carlisle.

And while Barnard says he has been “disappointed” to net just one of Cherries’ 19 league goals under Eddie Howe, he knows playing his part in their impressive run is more important.

Barnard told the Daily Echo: “Personally, I am very frustrated at the moment. As a striker, I set my standards high and want to be scoring more goals.

“But there are no two ways about it, winning is the most important thing and it is great that we are on an unbeaten run because it is all about the team.

“When I don’t score, I come off the pitch feeling a little disappointed but know I have got to set aside my own disappointment because it is all about the team. We want to keep striving to get up the table and it is all about promotion.

“The manager drills into us that it is all about the team and not just the starting line-up but the whole squad. There are a lot of games coming up and we are going to need everybody. We have good strength in depth and everyone is hungry for success. There are no bad eggs here and we all get on well and work hard so that is a good base.”

Barnard, who has worked tirelessly up front for the cause, has played his part in Cherries’ revival under Howe and will be hoping to help them extend to eight games their unbeaten league run when they host Stevenage tonight (7.45pm).

He added: “I could always see from the outside that Bournemouth were going places. I spoke to people about the club before I joined and knew their ambition matched mine. For me, it was only a matter of time before we started winning.

“I kept saying we would go on a good run and, fortunately, we have. It is hard to go on a good run but even harder to keep it going so we will focus on each game. Nobody is getting carried away.

“We weren’t at our best in the first half against Oldham and, fortunately, we weren’t punished. But we showed what we are about in the second half. We have got to make sure we start well against Stevenage because they are a good side and it is going to be another tough game.”

Agree with above, another free scoring striker such as Pitman next to Grabban and we will be laughing all the way to the Championship....

I agree with this. My guess is that Demouge will be given a run in the team in January when Barnard is sent back and is being lined up to be the first line replacement should injury occur to Barnard before then. I only saw Demouge in the Winchester friendly but putting to one side all the issues of fitness,Groves etc,etc, he looked very useful ; sort of Fletcher with finesse and good finish. With Grabban and Mcquoid able to switch between winger/striker positions I'm not sure there is room for Pitman, but as has been said....in Eddie we trust.

A few weeks ago I'd of totally agreed with you. But if Eddie wants Brett, I'd be more than happy to have him back. Eddie knows what he's letting himself in for and will get the best out of Brett. Where as Groves wouldn't of and we'd have tantrums and sulks again... Also agree about Barnard. works tirelessly, but in fairness to others already here, I don't see that Barnard brings more to the squad that we don't already have, plus we can save his wages...

personally i would like eddie to extend barnards loan to the end of the season just for his experience of promotion,his work rate is second to none and he brings a bit extra to the team as we do have a young squad.

I think Lee is angling for a permanent move here in January and I'd like to see that happen, but not if he's expecting £12k a week! No-one in League One should be on that sort of money!
He's a talented guy though and I'm sure he will play a major part in getting us to the Championship if he signs or remains here for the season on loan.
Good luck tonight. A tricky game in difficult conditions is on the cards but I'm fully expecting another three points.
UTCIAD!

Barnard is a work horse and does it well. He may not be scoring goals, but others are scoring off him. He also has a good attitude which is more than can be said about Pitman. In EH I trust, but we don't need a diva upsetting the team spirit.

I like Barnard for all his hard work but equally Wes Thomas when fit works as tirelessly, holds up the ball well and has the capability to score. He must be on a much smaller wedge than Lee so I think we should let him (Lee) go back with our gratitude for all the work he's done.

Why are people calling for the return of Pitman? He's failed at a Championship club and if it's our ambition to get there next season, he'll struggle again at that level.

Albeit he has failed at a POOR Championship side, but now he's not even getting a place on their bench.

If Eddie was going to send Lee back, would he be playing him week in week out now ? I know we've got strikers coming out of our ears, but we have to have someone who can lead the line. Lee fulfills this role. Fletch can only now be used for a few minutes, and Stockley isn't up to it yet, in my view never will be. Demouge looks interesting, but will he ever be fit enough ? The other strikers are all of a type and can't be played together. Some of those will go at least on loan come January. We really need Lee to stay.
.
As for the money, remember the £12k a week came from the Echo. That's the same Echo that insisted EH return was a done deal 12 hours before AFCB even approached Burnley. And the same Echo that had Bartley coming back (perish the thought) with EH. The same Echo that's put about the Pitman story. If BP were to return, other strikers would definitely go. As for being Championship standard, we already have strikers unproved at League 1 level, so BP is at least ahead there.

If Pitman was really that good, wouldn't Eddie have signed him for Burnley?

I think that the club should be trying to get Barnard's loan extended to the end of the season, which really ought to be achievable.

Yeah, I agree I A. I wasn't advocating BP return and i think it's just an Echo red herring anyway.
.
EH did not sign him at Burnley, but that's in the Championship. We have to get out of this league first and don't necessarily need Championship players to do that.
.
Mixed feelings about BP coming back if it were ever true, but EH is probably the only manager who will get anything out of him.

No one has mentioned Beckham yet, so I thought I'd do it.
I'd swap him for Barnard any day.
Mind you I'd swap Posh for Barnard. People seem to confuse Lee's running around ineffectually, poor close control and failure to win a single header (like Saturday) with working tirelessly for the team. Get Wes back in the side. At least he gets in scoring positions, and his efforts turned Pompey into a half decent attacking side. He deserves another chance.

It is in the terms of Barnards loan agreement that he has to play, provided he is fit. I recon he'll go back to the Scum in January.....

Thanks to the other guys for their kind thoughts... UTCIAD[/p][/quote]Go Pete, Go Pete, let's here some noize for the boyz!!!! Good to see fellow Cherries helping each other out.....and up the football league we go! I'm stuck up in Bucks tonight but the CherriePlayer commentary will be going full blast. Good luck boys, COYR!![/p][/quote]Yes, it's a REALLY great gesture!! UTCIAD[/p][/quote]Check your emails pete for details.[/p][/quote]Many thanks, nothing has come through as yet :)[/p][/quote]Just resent email to afcbpete@hotmail.co. uk. If you dont receive message by 17.00 let me know on here & i will give you my number, hopfully that wont be necessary (dont want any abusive texts from our friends mitchell, groves & brookes) LOL.[/p][/quote]steady eddie you can go via the echo they have both your details and afcbpete's i have done it in the past.they would contact him and then put in touch good luck if you haven't already been successful[/p][/quote]All sorted thanks nonno.

As hard as Barnard works - and he is a good player, I think Eddie will send him back at the appropriate time
I agree with this. My guess is that Demouge will be given a run in the team in January when Barnard is sent back and is being lined up to be the first line replacement should injury occur to Barnard before then. I only saw Demouge in the Winchester friendly but putting to one side all the issues of fitness,Groves etc,etc, he looked very useful ; sort of Fletcher with finesse and good finish. With Grabban and Mcquoid able to switch between winger/striker positions I'm not sure there is room for Pitman, but as has been said....in Eddie we trust.
Demouge is off to Yeovil I hear

Barnard is a work horse and does it well. He may not be scoring goals, but others are scoring off him. He also has a good attitude which is more than can be said about Pitman. In EH I trust, but we don't need a diva upsetting the team spirit.
Good Morning AFC CHERRIES FANS.
Another point on the board against one of the top teams in the league, well done BOURNEMOUTH.

Interesting comments about Lee. True he will give you 110% effort and like afcb-mark says, he is makes space for others to score. His attitude is spot on and he is a team player. One thing in his favour is that he has played in the Championship where as Brad Pitman has yet to prove his. Your club may well keep both in which case you wouldhave imo a super sub waiting to come on in the last twenty minutes with fresh legs.

Good luck Saturday, onwards and upwards unlike Pompey.
