It will hurt Yann not to be involved in Charlton match

Somehow I expect it will be as disappointing to Charlton fans as it will be to the Bournemouth contingent at Dean Court that Yann Kermorgant will not be able to take to the pitch next Saturday. While he has to serve a three match ban it could not really have come at a more inappropriate moment for Yann. Some Charlton fans may feel a little relief in Yann's absence, because former players do have a habit of scoring against their old sides, but I would not be surprised for both sets of fans to sing a few choruses of "Yann Kermorgant!,  Yann Kermorgant!, " during the night minutes if supporters catch sight of him.
Yann will be keeping his feet down from now on.
It takes a special player to really be loved by fans to such a degree that they don't feel that the team is anywhere near the same without them. While Yann has had some below par performances for his high standards this season, he is an integral part of the Cherries now and without him I don't think the team is quite as powerful. Eddie Howe is certainly a big fan of the Frenchman and knows that he can influence a match in a way that inspires others on the field. If Yann has a good game it is rare that the team does not come away with a win and he will be a big miss at home.

Yann may still want to come to the game and encourage his team mates and I expect he has been passing on whatever information he can that might be useful about some of his former team mates. However, Charlton are a much better team than they were last season going by recent results and AFCB will have to find a way to give them lots of problems with Yann Kermorgant.  

When Yann does come back it should be a good boost for the team.
