Arter: I wouldn't swap any of our players

Arter: I wouldn't swap any of our players

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter is convinced that the Cherries have the quality to compete in the second tier of English football.

The Championship reached a dramatic climax on Saturday, with Peterborough and Wolves joining Bristol City in League One next season following relegation.

Wolves relegation means that they have suffered back to back relegations following their relegation from the Premier League just twelve months ago and Arter believes that their struggles this season against established Championship sides and recently promoted sides from League One prove that the Cherries are capable of making the step up.

Arter told afcb.co.uk...

'You look at the teams that have gone up from League One last year and they have all been safe and not fighting against relegation, It is the teams that got relegated from the Premiership that are struggling!

'You look at that and you think Premiership and League One, that's a massive difference. But you see the Championship this year and there can't be a massive, massive gap as Wolves got relegated and Charlton have finished ninth in the league.

'I think we have definitely got a talented group of lads, and I wouldn't swap any of our players for anyone."

...or maybe just McQuoid and Grabban?...think that we will need some muscular firepower to support Brett?

^ I've got mixed opinions of Grabban. I would say he's good at supporting Brett but in front of goal he's as bad as any. I think that little scoring streak he was on was his peak. Most of the goals at Rotherham were penalties anyway. McQuoid needs to find his feet again, perhaps in League 2. So I'd think a loan would be most appropriate.

Sam Vokes isn't a goal scorer but maybe he could being another Fletcher. Apparently we're being linked with Charlie Austin but I highley doubt that. We're also being linked with Pope who had a great season in league 2 but I don't think he would cut it in the Championship.

We definitely need to strengthen the team, another goal scorer would be a bonus, better cover in defense and at least one central mid. Charlie Austin would not join a newly promoted championship side.

All of the first team players are capable of playing at a higher level. It's just when we get injuries throughout the season as all teams do, is when we will struggle to pick up points. Look what happened last season when we lost our Defence, we lost five on he trot. A couple of good signings would be Oldhams Matt Smith and Jose Baxter. Smith at 6'6" has been banging them in for Oldham and Baxter a good goal scoring midfielder with Premiereship experience with Everton. I'm sure Eddie will make 4 or 5 signings to strengthen the squad but no more ex players we should be looking forward not backwards.
