No hanging around for Tubbs, but what of others?

Tubbs is a great loan deal for AFC Wimbledon.
It is clear that Matt Tubbs is not one who likes being a bench warmer and with Eddie Howe already dabbling in the transfer market to bring in more striking power to the Cherries Matt Tubbs is ready to go on loan to AFC Wimbledon, according to SkySports Transfer Centre. That may seem like a waste of talent to some League One clubs who you would have thought would have been interested in the former Crawley Town hot shot, but either his wages were not liked or Matt himself wanted to take the AFC Wimbledon offer in a hurry to get his pre-season off to an early start. Whatever his reasons for going out on loan again so quickly, I hope he does well and enjoys his football. AFC Wimbledon have a player who will score plenty of goals for them I am sure.
We know Matt is not part of Eddie's plans and has not been for some time, but the loan move indicates that it was probably not possible to find a buyer for Matt this summer. Whether AFCB considered trying to sell Matt is not clear and he is expected to move today for an undisclosed fee. Recouping some of the transfer fees that ACB paid for players like Matt Tubbs and Miles Addisson are perhaps not so easy. We have also seen Stephane Zubar back in training this week which is excellent news, although I wonder if Bury who showed an interest in him when he was on loan there will see if they can take him back. I would still like to see Stephane try and get back into the team but I fear that he is well down the pecking order in Eddie Howe's thinking.

Miles Addison will be looking to play his football somewhere new.
Whether Miles Addison also decides to move on loan or permanently we will have to see but it is difficult for these players to reinvigorate their careers at AFCB having been out for so long and it will be great if they can play regularly again somewhere soon.
