i hope Bournemouth lose this 'plucky' & 'little' tag now.

Spunked millions on Grabban, Gradel, Cook, Gray, now huge wages on Defoe.

They can't be that little now.

They've not been little for years now but the media are so in love with them, it's beyond embarrassing. 

As a League One club they were throwing in excess of £10k a week at players, they're not small.

Bournemouth and Eddie Howe have done well, but they have had one hell of a relative backing to do it.

The most bizarre thing about them is it seems like their best players are their cheapest buys. Bit like us actually.

Can see the logic in signing Defoe but £120k a week is absolutely absurd for someone his age, on a 2 year deal with an option of 3. I assume there is some kind of relegation release clause here?

First of all where did they get the money for that? Second off, 120k is a stupid amount of money for him, I understand he'll bag goal but still jeez. I guess I makes up for not having to pay for a transfer? Still for that much be best make at least 12-15 goals.

3 year deal paying Defoe £20m 

Add sign on fee and agent fee it's a bit like a £25-30m signing. Sorry got my Mike Ashley accountant hat on.

 

I guess split it through the year is a better in their head.

Losing in the 90th minute? Get Defoe on

If it's the 90th minute of a game and your side need a goal, you'll probably feel a lot more hopeful if Jermain Defoe is on the pitch.

That's because the veteran Bournemouth striker is the master of last-minute goals.

I wouldn't mind him going tbh. Bit of a desperate thing to half rely on a striker in their mid-30s to have a spot in the squad but he's a proven goalscorer nonetheless. More so than Welbeck surely (i really can't stand him)?
