Wes Thomas: Back at Bournemouth and looking to make his mark

The 25-year-old striker admits to having experienced a 'difficult' 2012/13 campaign - as he fell out of favour under former boss Paul Groves at the Cherries and spent time on loan at Portsmouth, Blackpool and Birmingham City.

It was expected that he would complete a permanent switch away from Dean Court once the transfer window sung open, with comments attributed to him suggesting he would be pushing for a move.

He has, however, been welcomed back into Howe's plans and is now looking to help Bournemouth cement a standing back in the Championship.

Thomas told the Daily Echo: "A lot of what I said was misinterpreted.

"People said I didn't care about the club and that I thought I was better than the club. At no stage did I ever say anything like that. All I said was that I wanted to play football and, at the time, I wasn't playing here.

"It was difficult for me last season. I wasn't in the previous manager's plans and, for me, it was all about playing. I went on loan and did well because it gave me an opportunity to play. That is all I am asking for here and I have spoken with the manager about it.

"I have told him I am fully committed to the club and just want to prove to him that I want to play for his team. It is a great team and I am willing to work hard for him.

"I enjoyed my time at the clubs I played for last season but I am fully focused on helping Bournemouth. I want to prove to everyone that I am committed to the club and will give my all."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
