King can rule at Dean Court

The opportunity for Josh King is there for all to see. He has had a mixed start to life at AFCB and has not hit the heights that most fans will have hoped for yet. And I do say yet. There is a massive chance for him now to be adored by the Bournemouth fans if he can set about taking responsibility for his performances and have faith in his own ability to get on a goalscoring run.
Josh King just needs to have goals in his sights.
Josh King is young and has not had that many full seasons in his career and his stop start run of fitness has even kept him in and out of the AFCB team this season. He has a lot of pressure on him for sure as a new signing, and that level of desire to do well probably went skyward when he realised that he would was likely to be one of the strikers that Eddie Howe could now turn to fill the void left by Callum Wilson.
Josh and Joe Bennett at Stoke City.
Josh has many of the attributes to play the Wilson role. He is fast and while not as powerful might be able to add more aggression to his game in time. He will have studied how Wilson plays and may be given the role of stretching defences rather than playing a supportive role. Whether he could partner Glen Murray in that way we will have to wait and see, but Eddie Howe certainly seems to favour Josh over some of the other strikers at the club, and if he can be moulded into a striker that is more confident in front of goal the opportunity now may just bring his game on faster than many of us might expect. All he needs is that first Premier League goal to start some momentum and if he can do that against Watford at Dean Court we'll all soon start feeling that we really do have another majestic striker at the club.
