Cherries: Thomas asked Howe to leave

First published in Cherries News Bournemouth Echo: Photograph of the Author by

EDDIE Howe has said he reluctantly agreed to allow Wes Thomas to leave Goldsands Stadium after the striker had made it clear he wanted to go.

Thomas yesterday completed a loan move to Championship outfit Blackpool and will remain at Bloomfield Road until New Year’s Day.

However, although there is no provision for the agreement to be made permanent, it appears the 25-year-old may have played his last game for Cherries.

Thomas has reunited with Michael Appleton at Blackpool having enjoyed a fruitful loan spell under him when he was manager at Portsmouth earlier this season.

The east Londoner made an encouraging start to his Cherries career, netting 10 times in his first 20 appearances after signing – initially on loan – from Crawley for an undisclosed six-figure fee in August 2011.

However, once the move had been made permanent in the January transfer window and Thomas had penned a two-and-a-half year deal, the goals dried up with the frontman registering only one in his next 22.

It is understood Thomas had been hoping to be offered an improved contract in line with some of the club’s higher earners having agreed terms on his existing deal when a wage cap had been in place.

However, it is believed this did not materialise and Thomas’s frustrations grew when an influx of new strikers in the summer saw him drop down the pecking order and fall out of favour under former boss Paul Groves.

Although Howe had been keen to give him a chance following his appointment last month, Thomas made it clear he saw his future elsewhere when he spoke to the Cherries manager last week.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “Wes approached me before the Oldham game saying he wanted to go, which came as a big surprise to me.

“We had brought him back from Portsmouth with a view to involving him in the squad and seeing where things went.

“But he said he wanted to leave so has gone on loan. He has jumped a level to the Championship so it will be an exciting challenge for him. If he does well, I think that would only benefit us in January when we re-assess what is going to happen.”

Thomas, who could feature when Blackpool host Watford tomorrow, can be recalled by Cherries at any time after he has spent an initial 28 days at Bloomfield Road.

He was one of three players to leave on loan yesterday, with midfielder Mark Molesley joining League Two Plymouth for a month and youngster Josh Wakefield linking up with Dagenham & Redbridge, also for a month.

Both deals could be extended beyond a month even though the loan window closed yesterday until January.

I am afraid we have lost a potentially good striker thanks to the mismanagement under Groves

Wes was never given an opportunity and was surrounded by a plethora of strikers that were being frantically signed then chopped and changed in an attempt to find the right striking options

But this approach failed due to the teams inability to score anyway!

Good luck Wes you will score goals for Blackpool - at least you have made The Championship ahead of the rest of your team mates!

If Thomas/or his agent decides he wants to move from AFCB, then I can see no point in trying to 'pander to his needs' at the detriment of the rest of the squad at the Club.
He clearly doesn't want to fight for his place on our way to the Championship.
Sometimes an unsettling influence, like his commitment or attitude, can happen in the squad - So best let him go, permantly, in my opinion.

You can't blame any player for wanting to play on a regular basis , so good luck to Wes, to Mark Molesley and Josh Wakefield, I hope that they all get regular football and do well. I see that Eddie Mitchell has conceded that the Club is losing money, but is staying within the Salary cap through sponsership deals etc. He went on to say that he was building the Club up for his family to suceed him in the years ahead and the intention was to get the Club on a sound basis within 4 years or so. I fear that he is deluding himself," he that pays the piper plays the tune". As many of us suspected the Club is clearly in a heavy loss situation and is utterly dependent on our Russian's maintaining their interest in the Club, how long before they exercise full control and put in their own C.E.O.

Yes, I feel sorry for Wes, Groves has really messed up his career but it's strange how things have worked out for him, goes to Pompey on loan and their manager likes him, manager then gets a decent job at Blackpool and Wes is offered a chance to resurrect his career with them.
All the best Wes, things have not worked out here for you, but I really think you could have 'cut it' for us if you were given the chance..

I only saw Wes play for 30 minutes this season alongside Lewis Grabban for 30 minutes at Yeovil. That pairing looked fantastic, creating four one on ones with the keeper. Although they didn't score on that occasion, the pace and power of those two together looked fantastic.
They were never selected together again, and a great opportunity missed.
I will be very very sad to see Wes go, and believe he will do a good job for Blackpool, as he did alongside a similar player to Grabban (Mcleod) at Portsmouth.
On gates of 5500, frankly to have 10 strikers is quite ridiculous. I would rather we had sent Barnard back to Soton.

no one player is bigger than the team they each play a part and together they win games. If Wes is not happy at AFCB (for whatever reason) than the only thing left is for him to go. Clearly EH knows that he hasn't got the time to experiment and need to rely on proven strikers. Let us wait and see what he does at Blackpool and wish him well.

The club has too many players on their books and needs to reduce costs this is one way of achieving that.

Dragback says...

I remember the first games he played for AFCB and thinking he was the business - the ball used to stick to him, he would bully defenders, run at players, score goals by himself.

Why would Crawley ever let him go? Then for whatever reason he lost all that, he could'nt finish, he lost the attributes that made him standout (apart from heading which
he was always poor at).

So it could be :-
a) Poor management to blame
b) Being a confidence player
c) Having a poor attitude

On the one hand I can understand him feeling a bit agrieved - gets brought back and not played and then sees ANOTHER stiker being brought into the club.

On ther other hand if he so desperately wants first team football is he going to get that in the Championship?

With Wes almost certainly gone for good I'm hoping that will pave the way for Lee Barnard to come here permanently in January. We need his strength and guile up front and although he's not scored as many goals as we or he'd like, he's energetic and works his socks off for the team.

Thomas was on the bench against Doncaster and came on for the last 20 minutes.
EH's best mate, according to you, came on for the last minute. Would have thought he would have come on earlier as they are best pals.
Before the next game against Oldham he asked for a transfer and was consequently left out of the squad.
Quite right!

So come January in the striking dept we'll have Grabban, Pitman, Demouge, Tubbs and Fletch w/Stockley likely to return. Not to mention Josh being able to play upfront and some of the nippers coming through as well. I think we've got enough firepower to see us through!!!

Good luck to Wes, and the other lads going on loan, but for the sake of squad numbers and team atmo I'd hope that Wes makes his move permanent.

Will the Dutchman ever get through a game without injury?
Looks as though he wont & thats why he left Utrecht.We need a big guy up front though & I was hoping Frank would do the job.Fletch is just too old & I cant see him playing next season.

One thing that we could say which came true is that Eddie Howe signed (this time around) him (not for Burnley as predicted but for AFCB).

Good post Dragback, Thomas can certainly score goals when he's on form. Unfortunately a return of 1 goal in 22 games saw him lose confidence. Yes, some of this was due to the way we played under Groves, kept possession of ball well but didn't create opportunities for the strikers. If you listened to the Solent interview he did, he stated he wanted to stay at Portsmouth if a deal could be done. When Eddie returned, obviously he needed to look at him as he was a Bournemouth player. It looks as though Wes had already made his mind up, that he didn't want to play for Bournemouth any longer. Good luck to him if he can get a permanent deal at Blackpool and hopefully we can make some money on him. Looking forward to seeing Matt Tubbs get good run in the side, his goal scoring record speaks for itself. Just a shame Charlie Austin slipped through our fingers.

It's a work in progress, and to call them sloppy with the best current form in the league is just crazy, I was at the Stevenage game Tuesday and our passing was not sloppy, apart from the one goal they scored we were in control especially second half, Stevenage were a very solid and hard working side, their keeper was on top form and their defence threw everything they could in front of any cross or shot! We played very well Tuesday and will only get better, Eddie is "working it out" that's why we have seen players out on loan and Pitmann in, more to come in January for sure!!

We played very well Tuesday and will only get better, Eddie is "working it out" that's why we have seen players out on loan and Pitmann in, more to come in January for sure!!
