I think it is good that AFCB are challenging the mindset of other clubs in the Premier League by doing their business early and doing their best to keep information quiet. It has certainly been harder for them to do this summer as news has broken out pretty quickly whenever a bid for a player has been seen. Eddie Howe doesn't seem to mind that other clubs are finding it hard to keep pace with the whirlwind signings of AFCB.

Well, this is what marks the good managers out from those that see their ideas go up in smoke. If you can be trusted with a big transfer budget you'll soon be a big name in the game. Eddie has brought players in during previous seasons a few at a time. This is his chance to really pick players though who he desperately wants and has the funds to go out and get. I'd say that the experience he and Jason had at the bottom of League Two with no transfers allowed have taught him to get the most out of everything, and now that there is money he is being more careful than ever in how it is spent.
Artur Boruc, Adam Federici, Christian Atsu, Josh King, Tyrone Mings and Sylvain Distin - feel welcome at AFCB. We'll all be shouting for you to do exceptionally well when you get your chance to wear red and black!
