Is This Really Happening?

2015-2016: AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League. I'll let that sink in for a few more minutes...This doesn't seem real. Even given all the things that have gone in our favour over the last few years, this was always something that was never remotely anticipated.

Elliott Ward: The First Summer Signing

"He put together a DVD for me to show how the club wanted to play and I liked what I saw. He is the only manager who has ever done that so I was really impressed. He was keen to show me how the team played and a bit about the lads. The DVD highlighted how they worked and showed some of the goals from last season. It was impressive stuff and I learned a bit more about the club. The meeting with ....

Cherries Look To Administer Pompey Defeat

The opening league fixture of the season pits the Cherries against recently-relegated Pompey, in what promises to be an interesting (if rare) encounter for the two sides. Whilst the geographical proximity of this match would generally have this considered as a bit of derby game, there is little recent history between the two sides to suggest that this will be significantly different from any ....
