Brady completes Bournemouth move
Having had an ear bashing from Neil Warnock that ended hopes of him moving to Middlesbrough, Robbie Brady has today completed the move to Bournemouth that had been expected to go through last week.
I’d suggest it was at Bournemouth where he enjoyed his best ever performance for Burnley back in November 2017 just days before suffering the knee injury that put him out of the game for some considerable time.
He’d been one of the real influences in the team that was about to make Sean Dyche the proudest man in Proudsville but he was never able to recover that form with us due to a series of injuries and the emergence of Dwight McNeil.
He spent four and a half years with us during which time he made just 87 league and cup appearances in which he scored six goals. The last of those appearances came in last season’s 2-1 win at Everton before an achilles injury playing for Ireland, for whom he has 57 caps, ended his season.
He’s been without a club since until today and Neill Blake, the chief executive at Bournemouth, said: “To be able to sign a player of Robbie’s experience and calibre on a free transfer is a coup for this football club.
“Robbie has huge quality and versatility to add another important option to Scott Parker and his coaching staff. Proven at the top level, Robbie knows what it takes to be a Premier League player and we’re delighted he has chosen to join us.”
Now aged 29, I’m sure we all hope that he can steer clear of injuries that damaged his time at Burnley.Follow UpTheClarets:
