No Simeon and Josh out of action

So Simeon Jackson chose to go to Eintracht Braunschweig of the Bundesliga instead of the Gladsands Stadium. You can't win them all. I only pray that there are some back up options or we could be in trouble.
There was a feeling that the defence was most in need of bolstering for this coming season as AFCB were exposed when the had some injuries last season. Up front we were the highest scoring team in League One and so you can't say that we have been toothless in the striker department.
Now though there are some problems. Apart from Pitman I am not sure that the fans are confident that any one else in the team is capable of getting 20 goals for AFCB in the Championship. Such strikers cost a lot of money, something we may have but can't afford to do with the Financial Fair Play Rules. We are left with the players we have at the club and if we can't get them firing there is no doubt that we will struggle.

Josh McQuoid was going to be tried up front but now that option has gone for the first few weeks of the season. So Grabban, Thomas, Tubbs and Stockley have to show their worth. If they are not good enough then we will find out soon enough. Eddie Howe knows what is required at the Championship level and I am pretty sure he will be looking for more talent if he still feels he needs another striker that has a better potential for more goals. Over to you Eddie.

UTCIAD for AFCB players taking on Bashley tonight.
