Cherries: Clubs considering Thomas swoop

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

UNSETTLED Cherries striker Wes Thomas could be set for an imminent Dean Court exit - with Burnley believed to be among his potential suitors.

The Clarets are said to be one of a number of Championship clubs monitoring the situation of the former Crawley Town frontman.

Daily Echo sources this morning suggested that Burnley were close to launching a bid for the 26-year-old forward.

Sky Sports subsequently reported that the Clarets had tabled an offer, which the Turf Moor outfit denied, according to the Lancashire Telegraph.

And while Cherries boss Eddie Howe said he was currently unaware of any bids for Thomas, it does appear that his Dean Court career could be nearing an end.

Thomas was left out of the Cherries squad for the League One victory over Hartlepool last night amid continued speculation surrounding his future.

Speaking after the 2-1 win, Howe said: “We will wait and see what happens with Wes.

“There is interest in him and I think he has a desire to go. If he doesn't then we will review the situation.”

Burnley, Blackpool, Blackburn, Birmingham, Huddersfield, Derby and Watford are among the clubs to have been linked with Thomas during the January transfer window.

Blackburn boss Michael Appleton, who has already managed Thomas during loan stints with both Portsmouth and Blackpool this term, is reported to be considering a bid to reunite with the frontman.

He told BBC Radio Lancashire: “I have got the green light to pursue certain players. Whether they get over the line or not is another question. We will be working our socks off to make sure it happens. We need three or four new faces to give everyone a lift.”

Thomas, who has 18 months to run on his Dean Court contract, is understood to have cost Cherries around £175,000 when he joined from Crawley.

Meanwhile, Howe reported that Cherries had injury concerns over Charlie Daniels (foot), Simon Francis (hamstring), Eunan O'Kane and Josh McQuoid (both calf) following the win at Hartlepool.

But Howe says he will only consider recalling versatile Jon Meades from his loan at AFC Wimbledon if he needs him to play an active role in the team.

What baffles me about the Thomas situation is that Eddie says he rates him and has goals in him and would like to keep him. Whilst Thomas is reported to be wanting away because other players have been brought in on higher wages than him.
.
So I would have thought the simple solution is to re-negotiate his contract, assuming Eddie wants to keep him. Or am I missing something.

Moving on to another issue - with ref to the following news item pasted below, taken fro the above report.

If these people are missing from the squad this coming Saturday I suppose some fool on here is going to say that it will not make any difference to the performance or result this coming Saturday.

I very much think it will.

Wes is a talented footballer, who would be best suited alongside a big man in a 4-4-2, as he was with Jeff Goulding at Cheltenham, or Tyrone Barnett at Crawley.
Seven championship teams are supposedly monitoring the situation, so if he goes we should expect to receive at least double our investment in him.(£350,000 upwards depending on any sell on percentage).

And i suppose some fool on here will be predicting a loss no matter what personell are deployed. Eddie likes to play these injury situations out to keep the opposition guessing, and quite rightly as well. Crewe will be no pushovers, but we certainly have enough quality within the squad to overcome them.

Sorry Wook but i think Cheltenham recruited Goulding from us to replace the departed Thomas to Crawley. I dont think they actually played together. Thomas was often overlooked in his very short stint at Crawley(3 months) in favour of Matt Tubbs. Initially Wes scored for fun but since signing his contract his goal scoring record has been nothing short of Abysmal, despite being given far more oppertunity than Tubbs.

It's not baffling at all. Eddie H is hardly going to say Thomas is a waste of space, is he? He's merely exercising his considerable man management skills and trying to negotiate the best possible fee for a player who, though not without talent, has a very poor conversion ratio and is a tad too ponderous for Howe's pass-and-move mantra. As for the "injury" list, it's not unknown for managers to put up a smokescreen to keep the opposition guessing; I'd be surprised if more than one of them didn't feature against Crewe on Saturday.

Thank God that Eddie Howe does not depend on our advice because if he did it most likely drive him drink!!

He is the manager so I leave the team selection to him (including making allowance for the injured players).

As for Wes Thomas I have only seen him play couple of times, and for short periods at that. I have to say that he gives the impression that his heart is not at Bournemouth be it due to pay differential or otherwise.

If what is reported here comes to fruition it would be good for us.

I hope that injuries are resolved before Saturday. UTCIAD

To begin with I think you have got a bit of a nerve suggesting that anyone who doesn't agree with your assesment is a fool.
Secondly, we are all getting a bit hecked off the way you constantly search for any negatives coming out of Dean Court and then use them to back up your predictions for the forthcoming fixture.
We are all well aware that injuries to key players may have an adverse affect on the teams performance so please give it a rest and concentrate on the positives for a change..

With players going down like 9 pins, add to that those out on loan and the squad gets considerably smaller by the day. The injury update on the AFCB website is dated May 24th 2012, so just slightly out of date. So lurking around are the likes of the Dutch duo and even Zubar, but no sign of them as far as the bench goes. So there is an element of concern about who is actually available should anymore become injured, or in deed leave.

As for the injuries, it's January and every knock appears far worse because of the cold, a few days later and with the right treatment things improve very quickly. You can also expect these players to want to play every game even with niggles, I for one fully expect to see them play Saturday, unless Eddie sees things differently, he will be the judge of who is going to play.

Abslutely right Frankie. Two of the "doubts" for the Hartlepool game made the starting line up. I think they all want to play every game and will do whatever they can. Hopefully the knocks picked up in that game will prove to be less serious than first thought. I am also sure that Eddie will make the right decisions.

If these people are missing from the squad this coming Saturday I suppose some fool on here is going to say that it will not make any difference to the performance or result this coming Saturday.

I very much think it will.

Whilst Thomas is reported to be wanting away because other players have been brought in on higher wages than him. . So I would have thought the simple solution is to re-negotiate his contract, assuming Eddie wants to keep him. Or am I missing something. .

With players going down like 9 pins, add to that those out on loan and the squad gets considerably smaller by the day. The injury update on the AFCB website is dated May 24th 2012, so just slightly out of date. So lurking around are the likes of the Dutch duo and even Zubar, but no sign of them as far as the bench goes. So there is an element of concern about who is actually available should anymore become injured, or in deed leave.
Afcbpete I have a pair of boots and shorts which I can barely get into!! Can you turn up suitably dressed just in case!!!!

In Ed we trust!!
sorry I should have added I take your serious point about injured players
believe me, no one would want to see me in shorts... Incidentally, when you look at the club website, there are a number of players not listed in the squad. So it's very easy to forget who is, or is not here any more.

I think we should pay Wes a lucrative bonus per goal scored if the wages differential issue is true. It may get him back on target as he definitely has goals in him.

P.S. My name is not Wes T!!!!

UTC!!!

Deejaycee. I suffered from the problem you did and complain to the Echo. They came back with "it works fine for us can't reproduce the problem". Typical response from IT. Are you on Internet Explorer? I moved over to Google Crome and that solved it for me. Good luck!

Sorry not to reply earlier, mainly it's "nonnogeppetto" who's having he trouble, although I do have to watch out for missing letters sometimes.
Tried Google Chrome but wasn't very keen on the toolbar layouts, may give it another go.
Many thanks.
