Coulibaly and Rantie together – now that's frightening!

I am already salivating at the prospect of having Mohamed Coulibaly and Tokelo Rantie in the AFCB team in the future. Would it be too exciting to play both of these players? Absolutely not, in my opinion. While Coulibaly is injured at the moment, it would be great to see him line up next to Rantie and see the two terrorising defences in the Championship. Both players like to run at defences and with great pace, which will really make the Cherries a more attacking team.

While Tokelo says that he is looking to improve on his finishing, he does seem to have a good understand of when to make his runs and getting into promising positions. Mohamed is perhaps slightly behind in his development but can certainly learn off of Tokelo. As the wing is Mohamed's preferred position he should be one of those supplying the crosses for Tokelo and working with him to see how they can better understand each other on the pitch.

Exciting and unpredictable - Mohamed Coulibaly.
It is really something to see that AFCB is now attracting foreign players with amazing natural ability. I like the way that Tokelo admits that he is not the finished article and wants to learn more from the coaches at the club. Mohamed is equally honest in his conversations in saying that he only wants to improve while he is at Bournemouth and, like Ryan Fraser, both Coulibaly and Rantie have chosen to learn under Jason Tindall and Eddie Howe rather than go elsewhere. It says a lot about our coaching system and how the club is now seen from the outside. 

I am already missing Coulibaly. He will be great with Rantie.
With players like Coulibaly and Rantie, it looks like AFCB certainly are going in the right direction. I thought we had a good team last season, but the choices now available when everyone is fit is mind boggling. UTCIAD!
