SWINDON TOWN: Foderingham catching Bournemouth's eye

Swindon Advertiser: Wes Foderingham Wes Foderingham

CHAMPIONSHIP new boys Bournemouth are weighing up a January move for Swindon Town goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

The Advertiser understands the Cherries are ready to enquire about the 22-year-old’s availability when the transfer window opens in the new year, and manager Eddie Howe has already visited the County Ground twice to see Foderingham in action.

Though on the second occasion, the visit of Wycombe in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy last week, Town’s number one was ruled out through injury, Howe also watched the 3-1 home defeat to Walsall - during which Foderingham made a number of impressive saves.

Swindon would not encourage approaches for one of their prized assets, who signed a new contract at the club in the summer, but that may not stop Bournemouth making an offer.

The Cherries have already fielded four keepers this season, with Lee Camp - on loan from West Brom - the current incumbent.

Town are understood to have turned down a tentative approach from Brentford for Foderingham’s services in the summer.

The former Crystal Palace man is one of hottest goalkeeping properties in the lower leagues, having kept 50 clean sheets in 115 appearances for the Robins since arriving in Wiltshire on an initial loan deal in October 2011.

Foderingham has recently returned to competitive action after a back injury.

If the money is good we will sell. Obviously we'll try drive it up by saying he is not for sale. But Fods is worth good money and has over a decade left playing at a good level. He's not peaked yet even.

Why would he go to a small club like Bournemouth? Im still p1$$ed off Ritchie went there and they took advantage of our situation at the time to get him at a ridiculously low price! If we are serious about getting into the play offs this season then we must keep Fods! And if he eventually has to go then at least sell him to a genuinely bigger club for serious money and not to a small tin pot club like Bournemouth who most likely wont be in the Championship for long. I just don't understand why supporters of Swindon immediately accept we will sell our best players to small clubs like them, with that mentality we will never get to the Championship!

All of a sudden the "Back Injury" makes sense.

Fair play to those who made the decision not to cup tie Wes as this could reduced his price tag by a considerable amount.

Along with the majority, I would prefer Wes to stay, but realistically he was always going to courted by many clubs above our current level.

I would be a little disappointed if Bournemouth was his destination as I believe he deserves better.

That said. he did sign a new contract with us so we should be able to squeeze a considerable amount of Russian rubles from the deal.

The first friend brought a canteen so he wouldn’t die of thirst. The second friend brought an umbrella to keep the sun off.

It will be extremely disappointing if Wes goes anywhere before the end of the season but money talks and Bournemouth, despite being a far smaller club than we are, with a minute fanbase, are in the Championship and doing OK at that level so would be a fairly attractive stepping stone for someone like Wes.

We need to hold out for a proper sum of money this time though. The fee for Ritchie was nothing short of scandalous (though probably kept us in business) so we should really milk this one, if indeed Wes does leave.

I'm not sure how desperately the money is required - it wasn't that long ago we were forking out 400K for Luongo - and if we can do without it, we really should try and stave off any bids for the best Swindon goalkeeper since Fraser Digby.

I dont think not being FA cup tied will be a factor in any potential sale! The clubs looking at Wes would be more concarned with getting promotion to the Premiership.

Shame if Wes goes but players don't tend to hang a out for more than 100-150 games these days and Wes I doubt will be any different, although our league position come January could also have a bearing and he may stick it out to the summer if we're still in the play offs.

If he is sold to Bournemouth hopefully we can bump up the price like the Flint saga to make up for last January's Ritchie robbery.

Pi** off if you sell key players for money the club is going to do worse in performance isn't it. Which also isn't good for our fiancés?

I'm sure the town have enough money in their bank they sold a load of key players for a heck lot of money. around 500K is enough to sustain ourselfs

Because people see us as a bigger club doesn mean there is anything wrong with Bournemouth. I'd rather have their owners than Lee Power calling the shots.

to be fair, Wes was only 19 when he arrived here so age isn't the issue; it's if they are good enough that matters. On that matte, I have no idea, they haven't played enough to tell.

The Jockster says...

"There could be trouble ahead" Fods is the best keeper I've seen at STFC and I've seen them all from Sammy Burton onwards.
I think there are several reasons as to whether he will go or stay-
1) just how serious are Jed & co. about reaching the Championship
2) is the perception we have to sell to strengthen the back four
3) we have to sell because Jed & co. have no money
4) does the board think that our young side is too inconsistent to get promoted anyway so why not cash in on Wes who is our only real saleable asset?
Like others I found the "back injury story" a tad disingenuous - all rather convenient.
STFC have always had a sell to survive rationale I think and Wes is ambitious so another season in L1 probably isn't for him anyway.
Shouldn't the Power that be, be looking to see where we are points wise in Jan before making a decision? Like others I don't see Bournemouth as a real step up but the lure of the roubles on offer might turn the lads head. Here's hoping he stays but I'm not holding my breath.

That is why players like Ronaldo and RVP move from one top club to another!

So if we get a decent price for him - then he will move!
.
Ritchie is not a good example as we were on the brink of being kicked out of the league - in situations like that fair value is irrelevant!

That sale kept us alive and now we seem to be doing OK - we did invest in lots of new talent including £500k on Byrne and Luongo
.
The sell him and we lose arguement doesn't stand up as it was said about Flint!
.
Where are we and where are the massive club he joined?
.
Him going helped finance the move for Luongo - who is a much better prospect and instrumental to our team
.
Now I would rather have Wes than not - but if we got a decent fee (£1m+) and it allowed us to sign say Pritchard or Mason and strengthen at the back - like with Flint going we could be a better TEAM
.
Belford was signed as Wes' replacement everyone should know that - personally thought it would depend on this season - if we went up or challenged Wes may stay - if not he would be off (and should go with our blessing like Parkin and Cox did) but if someone wants to pay an inflated price in Jan (normally prices are higher!) so be it
.
We will never know how good Belford is until he gets games - no one went brilliant we have Foderingham when he arrived as no one had heard of him !
.
Belford was known of and rated - so why he is unlikely to be Wes - he is a decent prospect to have step in
.
STFC will prosper if we put put the best collective XI - if losing the best individual can help that so be it - think RVP and Arsenal!

If the price is right a footballer will move from one club to another. This applies to Wes, Rooney, Ronaldo, Messi et al.

Question is what is the right price ?

Fans views on here will no doubt differ and no doubt Jed will receive flak if it is under the valuation of some posters. No approach has yet been made so this story is pure speculation at the moment.

Eddie Howe was at the CG doesn't mean he was necessarily looking at Wes and why come to the JPT game when most of us would have guessed that he wouldn't play. He could be looking at a number of our players, Mason and Pritchard for instance.

Also don't buy the FA Cup argument as too few clubs actually take it seriously now until the last 3-4 rounds.

Agree with all you are saying, but wonder if 1million + would equate to much being left as our sell on fee will make big dent in it.
Perhaps a player exchange deal would be better?
What ever happens we must maintain our play off position in January as this will reflect in Wes's value to us. Jed & Co may think twice about selling him if we are in with a chance of promotion.
As usual time will tell.
In the meantime 3 points on Saturday please.

I take it you're not one for getting facts right!! All AFCB fans see Matt as a vital player for us, the ONLY reason he hasn't featured this season is, he's been injured, and we're all champing at the bit, hoping he'll at least make the bench Saturday for the first time this season. Again, we've had numerous injuries, and with the likes of Ritchie, Fraser, Coulibaly all close to full fitness, Eddie will have a wealth of talent to choose from, and yet, we've STILL made a decent start to the season, without all our best players. As far as our keepers go, true, we started the season with an abundance of those, but then the injuries started, so we got Henderson in from West Ham, and 10 minutes into only his SECOND game, he got a bad injury, so that was him out as well. Now we have Camp on loan, but we still have several keepers out. As for Foderingham, I think I'm right in saying Eddie has been seen watching your lot a couple of times recently, is he after another goalkeeper?? who knows, but I reckon £100 + a posh beach hut should seal any deal :)

First;y I am gutted for Howe that he travelled all that way to watch Fods and he didn't play. I cannot believe someone never phoned him!!!

Secondly it does not say a lot for Howes judgement if he has already bought four keepers!

We don't know that the club will sell Fods and I think that our policy of buying young was just part of the long term vision. Personally I think he will look at a club either in or on the edge of the Prem and that is not boremuff.

Terrible news if any truth in it. I am pretty sure the club would sell if the fee wasn't overly insulting and would be devestated to see it happen. He's been fantastic for us and I think selling him would give a clear message of where the club feel they're going. He's pretty much the only player in my 2013 calendar who is still here ! I know we're on a budget but Bournemouth will continue to try to get our best players on the cheap unless we stop the fire sale that happened in the summer with Ferry et al leaving the club for no fees. If it's anything like the fee we got for Flint turn it down ! Unless they're talking 1.5 million which I'm sure they won't say no ...

Firstly I am definitely in the keep Wes camp, best keeper I've seen for the Town in nearly 40 years of supporting. No where does it say the board will sell him in January, infer that they are thinking about it or it is a done deal. Eddie Howe is a top class manager and as one I have no doubt he rates Sir Wes but as someone else mentioned he may feel he should buy Pritchard or Mason - nothing we can do about that.

Good speculation from the Adver but if I was the board I'd hold to until the season's end as you just don't know if we will make it up. Our home form is promotion worthy and if following on from Saturday we can find a way away from home there is no reason why we might not go up. But that assumes keeping the squad together and getting a bit of luck.

Whatever happens to Sir Wes bar his night on the pop under the Italian he has been exemplary and will like Matt Ritchie always have my best wishes regardless of who he ends up playing for (Oxford, City and the Red Scouse excluded)....

You have to remember why Jed and Power are at our club. They are here to make money, somehow. That might be getting to the Championship, but they don't have any money to invest and hardly showed any ambition when they inherited a club in first position in League 1 in January. It might be by selling playing assets and selling out at the top of that curve. The positives are that they could have sold Wes in the summer and didn't, and that we are still in the play-off places. I remember a few people back in the summer saying they expected Wes to be sold in the January transfer window, and they were shot down by happy clappers. Unfortunately, transfer windows are always nervous times for selling clubs like Swindon.

Bournemouth fan in peace. We're all delighted with the fairly decent start we've made to the championship, but we have much room for improvement. Goalkeeper has been a headache so far with multiple injuries and 4 different keepers in 6 games at one stage. We have a short term loan (lee camp) but it's an area we need to resolve longer term.

If Swindon are open to selling then I'm sure we can agree something. Every club is a selling club, apart from Real Madrid maybe. There's interest in our players from lower Prem and bigger Champ clubs. That's how football works.

Howe is a big fan of your Wes, to Swindons credit he fits the comfort on the ball requirement and he widely known to be one of, if not the best, keeper in L1. So as a smaller championship club, it's logical to look at good L1 players.

Firstly there is nothing posh about Bournemouth apart from Sandbanks which is the most over rated sh#t hole in the UK. But even if you throw in one of your purple rinses and free bingo membership he would still be out of your league.

Secondly why on earth would a keeper of his stature go to you? Your are the next Portsmouth/Plymouth - sad but true, just a bankruptcy waiting to happen. He is or soon will be Premiership class which you NEVER will be despite the temporary presence of your very dodgy Russian mafioso.

Thirdly Eddie still managed to travel up to watch him when it was clear he was not playing which makes him slightly more stupid than your beach hut suggestion. Now trot on, do something useful and go help a nice lady across the road

welcome Mark. Fair comment but you are forgetting that firstly who is the "we"? Is that the people on here or the two clubs? Wes is not Matt Ritchie, he would certainly get a say in where he goes as Ritchie went to you against his wishes.

I think if it was known that Wes was for sale which I for one doubt at the moment then I cannot see him going to Bournemouth, no matter how much of a fan Howe is. Just because he rates him does not mean he will get him - we are aware of bigger championship clubs who are "fans" - Firstly Howe clearly has no patience with keepers, Secondly I would imagine he is thinking bigger than you (and us)!

If Swindon are open to selling then I'm sure we can agree something. Every club is a selling club, apart from Real Madrid maybe. There's interest in our players from lower Prem and bigger Champ clubs. That's how football works. Howe is a big fan of your Wes, to Swindons credit he fits the comfort on the ball requirement and he widely known to be one of, if not the best, keeper in L1. So as a smaller championship club, it's logical to look at good L1 players.[/p][/quote]welcome Mark. Fair comment but you are forgetting that firstly who is the "we"? Is that the people on here or the two clubs? Wes is not Matt Ritchie, he would certainly get a say in where he goes as Ritchie went to you against his wishes. I think if it was known that Wes was for sale which I for one doubt at the moment then I cannot see him going to Bournemouth, no matter how much of a fan Howe is. Just because he rates him does not mean he will get him - we are aware of bigger championship clubs who are "fans" - Firstly Howe clearly has no patience with keepers, Secondly I would imagine he is thinking bigger than you (and us)! bearwoodred

I think we all realise that Wes will be sold at some point. I cannot think of anywhere worse for him to go than Bournemouth and I have no problem with them personally barr the rich Russian guy.

Persoanlly I see him at an WBA, Villa, Newcastle standard club in a year or so.

I take it you're not one for getting facts right!! All AFCB fans see Matt as a vital player for us, the ONLY reason he hasn't featured this season is, he's been injured, and we're all champing at the bit, hoping he'll at least make the bench Saturday for the first time this season. Again, we've had numerous injuries, and with the likes of Ritchie, Fraser, Coulibaly all close to full fitness, Eddie will have a wealth of talent to choose from, and yet, we've STILL made a decent start to the season, without all our best players. As far as our keepers go, true, we started the season with an abundance of those, but then the injuries started, so we got Henderson in from West Ham, and 10 minutes into only his SECOND game, he got a bad injury, so that was him out as well. Now we have Camp on loan, but we still have several keepers out. As for Foderingham, I think I'm right in saying Eddie has been seen watching your lot a couple of times recently, is he after another goalkeeper?? who knows, but I reckon £100 + a posh beach hut should seal any deal :)
Firstly there is nothing posh about Bournemouth apart from Sandbanks which is the most over rated sh#t hole in the UK. But even if you throw in one of your purple rinses and free bingo membership he would still be out of your league.

Secondly why on earth would a keeper of his stature go to you? Your are the next Portsmouth/Plymouth - sad but true, just a bankruptcy waiting to happen. He is or soon will be Premiership class which you NEVER will be despite the temporary presence of your very dodgy Russian mafioso.

Thirdly Eddie still managed to travel up to watch him when it was clear he was not playing which makes him slightly more stupid than your beach hut suggestion. Now trot on, do something useful and go help a nice lady across the road
Dear me, a bit touch y this morning aren't we LOL. You obviously can't see a tongue in cheek comment if it came up and slapped you in the face!! We were a bankruptcy about to happen even before our Russian friend turned up. Maxim won't be going anywhere fast.

It's only when someone like your good self get's bitter and twisted about our good fortune that we'd even think about shouting about it. My comments came because of some ill informed comments on here, I just merely wanted to set the record straight, and introduced a touch of humour to boot.

fella, trust me I am not remotely touchy, or bitter or twisted - if I have a gripe it is with this assumption that he would go to you because Howe happens to rate him. i like the smaller clubs to do well and have beef with your team whatsoever - having had a grandparent who lived in Bournemouth for decades funnily it was place that I always had a soft spot for - apart from Sandbanks which as I said is rubbush.

To be honest though I have not encountered a Bournemouth fan who does not bragg - goes with the turf of promotion and is fair enough. Your Russian will leave though no matter what you think - he will either sell when you do better or get rid if it goes wrong. As for setting the record striaght you never said anything that was not already in the space filler of an article - why else write an article like that about Howe coming to watch him at games that were weeks ago and one over a week ago?

If Howe wants Fods he will have to join the queue! If he goes!!

Shouldn't the Power that be, be looking to see where we are points wise in Jan before making a decision? Like others I don't see Bournemouth as a real step up but the lure of the roubles on offer might turn the lads head. Here's hoping he stays but I'm not holding my breath.
"...the Power that be"

Subtle, but amusing nonetheless :-)

As for the Bournemouth thing, can see why there's the interest in Fods. They're leaking goals like crazy this season (joint second worst conceded in the division) notwithstanding their reasonable league position. Would imagine unless they can sort out this one issue it'll be a hard winter and a relegation battle. As for whether Wes would want to move? Doesn't sound too attractive to me, even to play in a higher division.

Would be expecting anything less than a million to be instantly dismissed as an insult. Even if a reasonable offer is made and accepted, Wes would still need to agree terms. Will have to wait and see but for the minute I'm not worried.

For Bournemouth themselves, small/medium sized club with big ambitions - nothing wrong with that, but considering in the Championship they're averaging only a thousand more through the gate than ourselves in League 1 (bearing in mind the higher away attendances in the Championship, not too much in it from a home attendance point of view), I'd imagine they'd be worried as to what will happen if their sugar daddy gets bored - I know I would be. There's a reasonable corrolation between home attendances and league position that would suggest for example that we may be hovering just outside the top six, and Bournemouth may be looking at relegation. Not an exact science and there will be exceptions but it's a reasonable guide - check it out if you don't believe me.

At town we've seen what happens when you live beyond your means and rely on a benefactor who can pull out at any time. Plymouth/Portsmouth/
et al have already learned the hard way.

Every club is indeed a selling club. A host of lower Premiership and upper Championship clubs are looking at us, and in turn we look at upper League One. That's how the transfer market works.

Regarding the Russian group, we don't really know what they are thinking. all we can do is look at what they've done to date. In 3 years they've put millions into AFCB infrastructure. Stadium, training ground, youth setup expansion, commercial activity and non footballing staff are all unrecognisable.

That bricks and mortar will be here long after the Russians leave, and will serve us will long into the future. But that was all done before we started buying some players, and it's hopefully a sign that there is a long term plan from the Russian group.

But end of the day, like any club who's budget is above the natural level (like Swindon previously) things can go wrong quickly. All we can do is see and keep communication with the club open. It's very interesting times.

If Swindon's directors feel the need to cash in on Wes, we'll be front of the queue. Whether we'll be outbid by bigger clubs with bigger budgets who knows. If a top end Championship club comes in for him offering first team football, then he'd probably be silly to turn them down. But we can offer a fairly local chance at a bigger stage than he has currently, in a team trying to make a name for itself playing a certain brand of football and a club trying to invest long term as well as short term.

It's never nice having other clubs interested in your players, we all know that. But it's a fact of football and there's no need to get so bitter about it as some comments on here appear. If the keeper moves on be it to us or another club, Swindon will look elsewhere and pick up a keeper from another club who will be upset themselves.

That bricks and mortar will be here long after the Russians leave, and will serve us will long into the future. But that was all done before we started buying some players, and it's hopefully a sign that there is a long term plan from the Russian group. But end of the day, like any club who's budget is above the natural level (like Swindon previously) things can go wrong quickly. All we can do is see and keep communication with the club open. It's very interesting times. If Swindon's directors feel the need to cash in on Wes, we'll be front of the queue. Whether we'll be outbid by bigger clubs with bigger budgets who knows. If a top end Championship club comes in for him offering first team football, then he'd probably be silly to turn them down. But we can offer a fairly local chance at a bigger stage than he has currently, in a team trying to make a name for itself playing a certain brand of football and a club trying to invest long term as well as short term. It's never nice having other clubs interested in your players, we all know that. But it's a fact of football and there's no need to get so bitter about it as some comments on here appear. If the keeper moves on be it to us or another club, Swindon will look elsewhere and pick up a keeper from another club who will be upset themselves.
Can't argue with that.
If the Russian does not change your shirt, ground name, etc. let's hope though before he goes that he bans the use of UTCIAD! That is just the most useless football reference or chant ever - barr none.

OFF TOPIC... Almost...
Any possible sale of Fodderingham revolves around money.
Swindon, whether we like it or not occasionally have to sell our best players to generate more income, for various reasons; ie, buy new players, pay the bills and yes make money for owners.
To help fund and keep the club moving forward we need to keep looking to unearth new cream for our footballing coffee.....and if and when it rises to the top..be ready to again sell on.
Every chairman, scout and coach at every club is hoping for and looking to un-earth that next nugget. The player that has yet to be unearthed.

Andrew Fitton done just that with Charlie Austin, taking a chance and promoting him up to become a goal scoring hero, who eventually moved on, made us money and still makes us a return when he moves clubs.
Charlie, we all know came from Poole Town and well down the football pyramid, but had a tremendous work ethic and an in-built natural ability to bang them away. And lets be honest ,Charlie was the kind of gem most scouts only get to dream of finding.

31 miles away at Bradford Town however there is another young man making a name for himself, playing I accept in a poor league and arguably a poor side, once again, like Charlie before him, in the lower tiers of the pyramid.
This season he has racked up almost fifty goals with yet another hat trick last night.
Is he another Wiltshire nugget waiting to be un-earthed, re-polished and given a similar chance that was given by Fitton to Austin ?

Maybe, and only maybe, Mr McCrory has a chance to put another striker into the squad and into the firing line..Certainly he needs to be considered as his goal scoring record is exceptional and with him being just down the road from us it is so easy to look..
The step up of course is massive, but that did not stop Charlie and others before him from proving themselves.

Mr McCrory, I know you have been told at least once before, but SAM JORDAN is raw, but he's also worth the scouts fee..

I take it you're not one for getting facts right!! All AFCB fans see Matt as a vital player for us, the ONLY reason he hasn't featured this season is, he's been injured, and we're all champing at the bit, hoping he'll at least make the bench Saturday for the first time this season. Again, we've had numerous injuries, and with the likes of Ritchie, Fraser, Coulibaly all close to full fitness, Eddie will have a wealth of talent to choose from, and yet, we've STILL made a decent start to the season, without all our best players. As far as our keepers go, true, we started the season with an abundance of those, but then the injuries started, so we got Henderson in from West Ham, and 10 minutes into only his SECOND game, he got a bad injury, so that was him out as well. Now we have Camp on loan, but we still have several keepers out. As for Foderingham, I think I'm right in saying Eddie has been seen watching your lot a couple of times recently, is he after another goalkeeper?? who knows, but I reckon £100 + a posh beach hut should seal any deal :)
Firstly there is nothing posh about Bournemouth apart from Sandbanks which is the most over rated sh#t hole in the UK. But even if you throw in one of your purple rinses and free bingo membership he would still be out of your league.

Secondly why on earth would a keeper of his stature go to you? Your are the next Portsmouth/Plymouth - sad but true, just a bankruptcy waiting to happen. He is or soon will be Premiership class which you NEVER will be despite the temporary presence of your very dodgy Russian mafioso.

Thirdly Eddie still managed to travel up to watch him when it was clear he was not playing which makes him slightly more stupid than your beach hut suggestion. Now trot on, do something useful and go help a nice lady across the road
Dear me, a bit touch y this morning aren't we LOL. You obviously can't see a tongue in cheek comment if it came up and slapped you in the face!! We were a bankruptcy about to happen even before our Russian friend turned up. Maxim won't be going anywhere fast. You'll not find many AFCB fans bragging about that, we know we're lucky, and we know we're one of the smallest Championship clubs when looking at attendances. It's only when someone like your good self get's bitter and twisted about our good fortune that we'd even think about shouting about it. My comments came because of some ill informed comments on here, I just merely wanted to set the record straight, and introduced a touch of humour to boot. At least it's good to know "Chish and Fips" hasn't lost his, not sure you've even got one LOL.... Anyway, regardless of the attitude of some on here towards us, I hope you have a good season!! UTCIAD
fella, trust me I am not remotely touchy, or bitter or twisted - if I have a gripe it is with this assumption that he would go to you because Howe happens to rate him. i like the smaller clubs to do well and have beef with your team whatsoever - having had a grandparent who lived in Bournemouth for decades funnily it was place that I always had a soft spot for - apart from Sandbanks which as I said is rubbush.

To be honest though I have not encountered a Bournemouth fan who does not bragg - goes with the turf of promotion and is fair enough. Your Russian will leave though no matter what you think - he will either sell when you do better or get rid if it goes wrong. As for setting the record striaght you never said anything that was not already in the space filler of an article - why else write an article like that about Howe coming to watch him at games that were weeks ago and one over a week ago?

If Howe wants Fods he will have to join the queue! If he goes!!
Ever thought that Eddie was looking at someone else?? Allsop has had his problems this season, but is going to be a cracking keeper, so I'd actually be surprised if Eddie were to buy another one. As for Maxim leaving. Well of cause he will, at some point, it's a question of what state will we be in when that does happen. He's not making a song and dance about it, but it's well known that he wants us in the Premier League. But then, which Championship owner wouldn't. We all know what could lay ahead if it all goes wrong. As I said earlier, had he not come on board, I'd be surprised if we'd even exist now!!

We were a bankruptcy about to happen even before our Russian friend turned up. Maxim won't be going anywhere fast. You'll not find many AFCB fans bragging about that, we know we're lucky, and we know we're one of the smallest Championship clubs when looking at attendances. It's only when someone like your good self get's bitter and twisted about our good fortune that we'd even think about shouting about it. My comments came because of some ill informed comments on here, I just merely wanted to set the record straight, and introduced a touch of humour to boot. At least it's good to know "Chish and Fips" hasn't lost his, not sure you've even got one LOL.... Anyway, regardless of the attitude of some on here towards us, I hope you have a good season!! UTCIAD
fella, trust me I am not remotely touchy, or bitter or twisted - if I have a gripe it is with this assumption that he would go to you because Howe happens to rate him. i like the smaller clubs to do well and have beef with your team whatsoever - having had a grandparent who lived in Bournemouth for decades funnily it was place that I always had a soft spot for - apart from Sandbanks which as I said is rubbush.

To be honest though I have not encountered a Bournemouth fan who does not bragg - goes with the turf of promotion and is fair enough. Your Russian will leave though no matter what you think - he will either sell when you do better or get rid if it goes wrong. As for setting the record striaght you never said anything that was not already in the space filler of an article - why else write an article like that about Howe coming to watch him at games that were weeks ago and one over a week ago?

If Howe wants Fods he will have to join the queue! If he goes!!
Ever thought that Eddie was looking at someone else?? Allsop has had his problems this season, but is going to be a cracking keeper, so I'd actually be surprised if Eddie were to buy another one. As for Maxim leaving. Well of cause he will, at some point, it's a question of what state will we be in when that does happen. He's not making a song and dance about it, but it's well known that he wants us in the Premier League. But then, which Championship owner wouldn't. We all know what could lay ahead if it all goes wrong. As I said earlier, had he not come on board, I'd be surprised if we'd even exist now!!
I have no doubts Howe is looking elsewhere. - would be silly not too.

Biggest question of all though is when it does go wrong and I do hope it doesn't honestly having been through it a bit ourselves. The really big big question is ..................


Will Bournemouth fans still litter the Swindon Town forum??????

Just on Matt Ritchie and where he's been, he's been injured since pre season. He played an hour for the development squad this week and should be back in the first team soon. We look forward to having him back. Very much in our first team thoughts. His stand in Ryan Fraser is a teenager and wasn't expected to play every week.

I take it you're not one for getting facts right!!

Firstly there is nothing posh about Bournemouth apart from Sandbanks which is the most over rated sh#t hole in the UK. But even if you throw in one of your purple rinses and free bingo membership he would still be out of your league.

Secondly why on earth would a keeper of his stature go to you? Your are the next Portsmouth/Plymouth - sad but true, just a bankruptcy waiting to happen. He is or soon will be Premiership class which you NEVER will be despite the temporary presence of your very dodgy Russian mafioso.

Thirdly Eddie still managed to travel up to watch him when it was clear he was not playing which makes him slightly more stupid than your beach hut suggestion. Now trot on, do something useful and go help a nice lady across the road

I always look forward to your posts, along with Mallorca's. It's such a challenge to work out whether they are mainly in English or mainly in Spanish.

Please tell me, is there no such thing as punctuation in Spain?

Allsop has had his problems this season, but is going to be a cracking keeper, so I'd actually be surprised if Eddie were to buy another one. As for Maxim leaving. Well of cause he will, at some point, it's a question of what state will we be in when that does happen. He's not making a song and dance about it, but it's well known that he wants us in the Premier League. But then, which Championship owner wouldn't.

I take it you're not one for getting facts right!! All AFCB fans see Matt as a vital player for us, the ONLY reason he hasn't featured this season is, he's been injured, and we're all champing at the bit, hoping he'll at least make the bench Saturday for the first time this season. Again, we've had numerous injuries, and with the likes of Ritchie, Fraser, Coulibaly all close to full fitness, Eddie will have a wealth of talent to choose from, and yet, we've STILL made a decent start to the season, without all our best players. As far as our keepers go, true, we started the season with an abundance of those, but then the injuries started, so we got Henderson in from West Ham, and 10 minutes into only his SECOND game, he got a bad injury, so that was him out as well. Now we have Camp on loan, but we still have several keepers out. As for Foderingham, I think I'm right in saying Eddie has been seen watching your lot a couple of times recently, is he after another goalkeeper?? who knows, but I reckon £100 + a posh beach hut should seal any deal :)
Firstly there is nothing posh about Bournemouth apart from Sandbanks which is the most over rated sh#t hole in the UK. But even if you throw in one of your purple rinses and free bingo membership he would still be out of your league.

Secondly why on earth would a keeper of his stature go to you? Your are the next Portsmouth/Plymouth - sad but true, just a bankruptcy waiting to happen. He is or soon will be Premiership class which you NEVER will be despite the temporary presence of your very dodgy Russian mafioso.

Thirdly Eddie still managed to travel up to watch him when it was clear he was not playing which makes him slightly more stupid than your beach hut suggestion. Now trot on, do something useful and go help a nice lady across the road
Dear me, a bit touch y this morning aren't we LOL. You obviously can't see a tongue in cheek comment if it came up and slapped you in the face!! We were a bankruptcy about to happen even before our Russian friend turned up. Maxim won't be going anywhere fast. You'll not find many AFCB fans bragging about that, we know we're lucky, and we know we're one of the smallest Championship clubs when looking at attendances. It's only when someone like your good self get's bitter and twisted about our good fortune that we'd even think about shouting about it. My comments came because of some ill informed comments on here, I just merely wanted to set the record straight, and introduced a touch of humour to boot. At least it's good to know "Chish and Fips" hasn't lost his, not sure you've even got one LOL.... Anyway, regardless of the attitude of some on here towards us, I hope you have a good season!! UTCIAD
fella, trust me I am not remotely touchy, or bitter or twisted - if I have a gripe it is with this assumption that he would go to you because Howe happens to rate him. i like the smaller clubs to do well and have beef with your team whatsoever - having had a grandparent who lived in Bournemouth for decades funnily it was place that I always had a soft spot for - apart from Sandbanks which as I said is rubbush.

To be honest though I have not encountered a Bournemouth fan who does not bragg - goes with the turf of promotion and is fair enough. Your Russian will leave though no matter what you think - he will either sell when you do better or get rid if it goes wrong. As for setting the record striaght you never said anything that was not already in the space filler of an article - why else write an article like that about Howe coming to watch him at games that were weeks ago and one over a week ago?

If Howe wants Fods he will have to join the queue! If he goes!!
Ever thought that Eddie was looking at someone else?? Allsop has had his problems this season, but is going to be a cracking keeper, so I'd actually be surprised if Eddie were to buy another one. As for Maxim leaving. Well of cause he will, at some point, it's a question of what state will we be in when that does happen. He's not making a song and dance about it, but it's well known that he wants us in the Premier League. But then, which Championship owner wouldn't. We all know what could lay ahead if it all goes wrong. As I said earlier, had he not come on board, I'd be surprised if we'd even exist now!!
I have no doubts Howe is looking elsewhere. - would be silly not too.

Biggest question of all though is when it does go wrong and I do hope it doesn't honestly having been through it a bit ourselves. The really big big question is ..................


Will Bournemouth fans still litter the Swindon Town forum??????

p.s. good to hear from you steady eddie - white van off the road?
You forget, we HAVE been there before, TWICE!! I'm only here because the story is of interest to AFCB fans, I'd have no reason to otherwise, and only commented after derogatory and inaccurate remarks posted. I think you'll find, we get more of you lot on our site, than us on here.... White van eh "Steady Eddie" haaa haaa
things is Pete is that this story is not anywhere else is it? So that is not an excuse to say it is of interest. You would have HAD to come on our site to spot it - I have looked! So there you were on our site again as you probably are daily and then bang, Bournemouth get a mention and in you go.

I doubt that we have that many on your site - that is a poor excuse.

That said in my view you are most welcome but please do pop back if you get relegated or lose 6 - 1 again.

fella, trust me I am not remotely touchy, or bitter or twisted - if I have a gripe it is with this assumption that he would go to you because Howe happens to rate him. i like the smaller clubs to do well and have beef with your team whatsoever - having had a grandparent who lived in Bournemouth for decades funnily it was place that I always had a soft spot for - apart from Sandbanks which as I said is rubbush.

To be honest though I have not encountered a Bournemouth fan who does not bragg - goes with the turf of promotion and is fair enough. Your Russian will leave though no matter what you think - he will either sell when you do better or get rid if it goes wrong. As for setting the record striaght you never said anything that was not already in the space filler of an article - why else write an article like that about Howe coming to watch him at games that were weeks ago and one over a week ago?

If Howe wants Fods he will have to join the queue! If he goes!!
Ever thought that Eddie was looking at someone else?? Allsop has had his problems this season, but is going to be a cracking keeper, so I'd actually be surprised if Eddie were to buy another one. As for Maxim leaving. Well of cause he will, at some point, it's a question of what state will we be in when that does happen. He's not making a song and dance about it, but it's well known that he wants us in the Premier League. But then, which Championship owner wouldn't. We all know what could lay ahead if it all goes wrong. As I said earlier, had he not come on board, I'd be surprised if we'd even exist now!!
I have no doubts Howe is looking elsewhere. - would be silly not too.

Biggest question of all though is when it does go wrong and I do hope it doesn't honestly having been through it a bit ourselves. The really big big question is ..................


Will Bournemouth fans still litter the Swindon Town forum??????

p.s. good to hear from you steady eddie - white van off the road?
You forget, we HAVE been there before, TWICE!! I'm only here because the story is of interest to AFCB fans, I'd have no reason to otherwise, and only commented after derogatory and inaccurate remarks posted. I think you'll find, we get more of you lot on our site, than us on here.... White van eh "Steady Eddie" haaa haaa
things is Pete is that this story is not anywhere else is it? So that is not an excuse to say it is of interest. You would have HAD to come on our site to spot it - I have looked! So there you were on our site again as you probably are daily and then bang, Bournemouth get a mention and in you go.

I doubt that we have that many on your site - that is a poor excuse.

That said in my view you are most welcome but please do pop back if you get relegated or lose 6 - 1 again.
It was on Bournemouth vitals forum, which is where your lazy SA reporter obviously stumbled across it.!!!
Absolutely right, The G&H got this story from our Echo boys. In FACT, I've got hold of this story from FOUR sources, and came on here to see if there might be anything in it.... Yet AGAIN Bearwoodred is coming out with MORE ill-informed comments!! Never mind Steady Eddie, they may actually come out with something that's accurate at some point.

Never considered the pig fiddlers (Yeovil) as local rivals, so i guess we will have to be content with Reading and Brighton, still at least it aint Brizzle which is hardly local to you either is it.
To be honest i dont rate Fodringham that highly so only popped on here to see if there was any substance to the the story.

Glad you don't rate Fods bendie eddie, either that proves you or your manager know nothing about players! Which one is it?

Whats wrong with Saints being your rivals or are they taken? Swiindon is about 40 miles from Brizzle, nearer than you are to anyone other that Saints.

We all know what could lay ahead if it all goes wrong. As I said earlier, had he not come on board, I'd be surprised if we'd even exist now!!
I have no doubts Howe is looking elsewhere. - would be silly not too.

Biggest question of all though is when it does go wrong and I do hope it doesn't honestly having been through it a bit ourselves. The really big big question is ..................


Will Bournemouth fans still litter the Swindon Town forum??????

p.s. good to hear from you steady eddie - white van off the road?
You forget, we HAVE been there before, TWICE!! I'm only here because the story is of interest to AFCB fans, I'd have no reason to otherwise, and only commented after derogatory and inaccurate remarks posted. I think you'll find, we get more of you lot on our site, than us on here.... White van eh "Steady Eddie" haaa haaa
things is Pete is that this story is not anywhere else is it? So that is not an excuse to say it is of interest. You would have HAD to come on our site to spot it - I have looked! So there you were on our site again as you probably are daily and then bang, Bournemouth get a mention and in you go.

I doubt that we have that many on your site - that is a poor excuse.

That said in my view you are most welcome but please do pop back if you get relegated or lose 6 - 1 again.
It was on Bournemouth vitals forum, which is where your lazy SA reporter obviously stumbled across it.!!!
Absolutely right, The G&H got this story from our Echo boys. In FACT, I've got hold of this story from FOUR sources, and came on here to see if there might be anything in it.... Yet AGAIN Bearwoodred is coming out with MORE ill-informed comments!! Never mind Steady Eddie, they may actually come out with something that's accurate at some point.
vitals forum my nads - it was all over Twtitter during the chuffing Walsall home game that Howe and wotsis name from Brighton were at the game so therefore looking at someone which is likely to be Wes or one of the Thompsons. In fact it could have been our lazy SA reporter who tweeted it but I follow a fair number of fans on Twitter when I am not at the match so I am not sure - hardly iill informed by southern friends. You'd be suprised by who is in our stands these days.

Good luck at the weekend the recent lack of wins and the steady eddie slide down the league must be a worry. No wonder Howe wants to spend russian gold.

I think they don't need Wes this is another tactical transfer by Eddie Howe to prevent our promotion. He did this with Matt Ritchie. He didn't want Matt Ritchie he just wanted to fu** our chances up[/p][/quote]I take it you're not one for getting facts right!! All AFCB fans see Matt as a vital player for us, the ONLY reason he hasn't featured this season is, he's been injured, and we're all champing at the bit, hoping he'll at least make the bench Saturday for the first time this season. Again, we've had numerous injuries, and with the likes of Ritchie, Fraser, Coulibaly all close to full fitness, Eddie will have a wealth of talent to choose from, and yet, we've STILL made a decent start to the season, without all our best players. As far as our keepers go, true, we started the season with an abundance of those, but then the injuries started, so we got Henderson in from West Ham, and 10 minutes into only his SECOND game, he got a bad injury, so that was him out as well. Now we have Camp on loan, but we still have several keepers out. As for Foderingham, I think I'm right in saying Eddie has been seen watching your lot a couple of times recently, is he after another goalkeeper?? who knows, but I reckon £100 + a posh beach hut should seal any deal :)[/p][/quote]Firstly there is nothing posh about Bournemouth apart from Sandbanks which is the most over rated sh#t hole in the UK. But even if you throw in one of your purple rinses and free bingo membership he would still be out of your league. Secondly why on earth would a keeper of his stature go to you? Your are the next Portsmouth/Plymouth - sad but true, just a bankruptcy waiting to happen. He is or soon will be Premiership class which you NEVER will be despite the temporary presence of your very dodgy Russian mafioso. Thirdly Eddie still managed to travel up to watch him when it was clear he was not playing which makes him slightly more stupid than your beach hut suggestion. Now trot on, do something useful and go help a nice lady across the road[/p][/quote]Dear me, a bit touch y this morning aren't we LOL. You obviously can't see a tongue in cheek comment if it came up and slapped you in the face!! We were a bankruptcy about to happen even before our Russian friend turned up. Maxim won't be going anywhere fast. You'll not find many AFCB fans bragging about that, we know we're lucky, and we know we're one of the smallest Championship clubs when looking at attendances. It's only when someone like your good self get's bitter and twisted about our good fortune that we'd even think about shouting about it. My comments came because of some ill informed comments on here, I just merely wanted to set the record straight, and introduced a touch of humour to boot. At least it's good to know "Chish and Fips" hasn't lost his, not sure you've even got one LOL.... Anyway, regardless of the attitude of some on here towards us, I hope you have a good season!! UTCIAD[/p][/quote]fella, trust me I am not remotely touchy, or bitter or twisted - if I have a gripe it is with this assumption that he would go to you because Howe happens to rate him. i like the smaller clubs to do well and have beef with your team whatsoever - having had a grandparent who lived in Bournemouth for decades funnily it was place that I always had a soft spot for - apart from Sandbanks which as I said is rubbush. To be honest though I have not encountered a Bournemouth fan who does not bragg - goes with the turf of promotion and is fair enough. Your Russian will leave though no matter what you think - he will either sell when you do better or get rid if it goes wrong. As for setting the record striaght you never said anything that was not already in the space filler of an article - why else write an article like that about Howe coming to watch him at games that were weeks ago and one over a week ago? If Howe wants Fods he will have to join the queue! If he goes!![/p][/quote]Ever thought that Eddie was looking at someone else?? Allsop has had his problems this season, but is going to be a cracking keeper, so I'd actually be surprised if Eddie were to buy another one. As for Maxim leaving. Well of cause he will, at some point, it's a question of what state will we be in when that does happen. He's not making a song and dance about it, but it's well known that he wants us in the Premier League. But then, which Championship owner wouldn't.

Correct, we're not rivals - and yet here you are. Not sour in the slightest, met some perfectly decent Bournemouth fans at our previous encounters, home and away, but I do find it interesting even when we're not in the same league you still appear, on the flimsiests of pretexts. By "joke" I was referring to the Ritchie signing, and some of your irritating fans.

Had any better luck getting a team to have a rivlarly with in the championship? All joking aside Yeovil's your best bet for a derby this year. Closest by a country mile.
Never considered the pig fiddlers (Yeovil) as local rivals, so i guess we will have to be content with Reading and Brighton, still at least it aint Brizzle which is hardly local to you either is it.
To be honest i dont rate Fodringham that highly so only popped on here to see if there was any substance to the the story.

Oops spot thehe obvious mistake. Must be catching
Good to see you are alive and kicking Steady.

I would suggest you look at your own spelling before pulling others up for theirs :-0

Eddie Howe could have been looking at a number of players at the first game as Walsall have a number of decent players, some of which are on loan and could be available. The second game, he had the night off, there were only few other games on that night and it was reasonably local. After all we have quite a few sensible fans that travel up from Dorset to watch a decent team every other week so it would be easy for him.

Perhaps he is a secret Town fan :-)

I would expect Mark and Lee to attend matches when they have a chance, no different really.

I think Sam has made a big thing out of very little here and used the Ritchie palaver to help make a mountain out of a molehill.

We may find out if he was looking at a Town player in January. Then again we may not.

Why does anyone care where one of our players is sold to. When he is gone his gone and he becomes an ex player. Our priority is to decide IF we sell and then get the best money we can, that is in the best interest of the club. If Bournemouth come up with the best offer so be it.

As regards peoples comments that he should go to a premier league club. Whilst he is a great keeper for us , I don't think he is tall enough, comes and dominates his area, or get enough crosses for a premier league goal keeper.

I would rather he does not go, but if he does lets put a decent price tag on him and get the money upfront.

Bristol's a forty minute jaunt straight down the M4 from us, Brighton's a good hundred miles from you - this'd be like Swindon claiming Walsall or Leyton Orient as local rivals. Be honest, you have no local rivals, there're Saints and Pompey but they're more concerned with each other than Bournemouth. Not really a dig as the geography of the place isn't your fault but claiming reading or Brighton as local rivals is more than pushing it.

To be honest? You haven't been honest in the slightest pal, if you had you'd admit that you came on here not to see if there was any truth to the story (wouldn't have had to comment if that was the case) but at the first mention of your club came on here to wind people up. Maybe forget us minnows in league 1 and go wind up your "local rivals" Reading and Brigh... Sorry, can't even finish that sentence, Eddie, you're a top man, I needed a laugh.
