Kermorgant's quick integration is a priority

Yann Kermorgant is surely itching to get his goal scoring underway at the Cherries. For that reason I hope Eddie picks him to play against Burnley. It has not been as simple as Eddie Howe would have liked though to integrate Yann into the team. We have heard that the weather has been a hindrance on training and that the players have not had quite as much time out on the practise field as would have been liked. 
Yann could play his first full 90 minutes in an AFCB shirt against Burnley this weekend.
AFCB would benefit from a striker that can work well with Grabban. We can see the power of a double strike force in Ings and Vokes and the benefits that has given Burnley. They just hit it off and it would be great if Yann can get an understanding with our other strikers. It may be that Yann plays best with Tokelo Rantie or Pitman, but it is early days and AFCB are at a bit of a disadvantage to Burnley in that respect.
A goal would make Yann an instant hero at Dean Court and take our minds
off what we used to have in Danny Ings and Sam  Vokes.
While Yann won't expect to simply walk into the team I like the way he offers a different route to goal than our current crop of strikers. Some of those crosses might not be hit in hope any more, AFCB actually have a player who will attack the ball in the box at whatever height it comes.

So if you want to wish for anything this week, wish for a full weeks training with Yann getting to know a little more about how AFCB operate. It could mean all the difference come the weekend.
