Fraser is not done yet

I don't think many AFCB supporters thought that Ryan Fraser would be such a string addition to the squad when he first came from Aberdeen last year. After all, he was only 19 and League One and the Championship are tough leagues and the small stature of Ryan Fraser would come up to chest height on most of the big defenders in these leagues. But he has made Bournemouth his home and fitted into the squad and the first team for most of the season since being in the Championship. How good could he be in the long run?
The wee man  turned 20 this week and could celebrate
with another call up to Scotland U21 squad.
I believe he could be a player who sets the standards for others in future years. He came to the south coast as he knew that Eddie Howe would play youngsters if they were good enough and Ryan has grasped his opportunity. 

An interview in the Bournemouth Echo last week referred to Ryan having picked up bronchitis in recent weeks forcing him to be left out of the starting eleven of late. But he has made 24 appearances in the Championship and he is only at the start of his career. He has to be one of the players that Eddie Howe builds the team around in future years. His energy and enthusiasm for the game have put a smile not only on Eddie Howe's face but also a lot of the Bournemouth supporters.

I am not sure if Ryan knows just how good he is, but it is nice that he just enjoys playing and is loving his time at AFCB. He is thriving at Dean Court and I believe he has great players to learn from all around him as AFCB have a quad with some sensational wingers. He has to be in line for the award for the most improved player of the season and I just see him getting even better as he gets more games under his belt.

He did not get long to impress in the game against Derby but the rest he has had in recent weeks just may help him prolong his season and that has to be good news for AFCB.
