Afc Bournemouth – 2014/15 Football League Champions

An enthralling and tightly-fought season came to a conclusion in the confines of South London as the The Cherries despatched Charlton in as professional and conclusive a manner as you will see. For the visiting Cherries, the maths were fairly simple. Any result, bar a heavy defeat and similar result for Middlesbrough, would be sufficient to see them into the Premier League for the first time. A stunning early effort from Matt Richie and ex-Addick Harry Arter’s early strike allayed any ....

Addicks Dealt With

The Cherries got their return to the second tier of English football off to a winning start thanks to a brace from Lewis Grabban. Having failed to find the target for 14 consecutive games at the end of the last campaign, Grabban dropped into the space behind Wes Thomas to start the new season in style. A well-placed header and a thumping 25-yard strike had the Cherries fans cheering their team ....

Second Run-out At The Priory

AFC Bournemouth came out on top in tonight's second pre-season friendly on home soil, beating Wessex League side Christchurch 7-1. A brace from Harry Arter, and goals for youth team graduates Jayden Stockley, Baily Cargill, Brett Pitman as well as Lewis Grabban and Donal McDermott saw the side to a comfortable away success.Pre-season friendly matches like this are by no means a marker for any of ....

Two Wins In A Row - The Dream Lives On

The Cherries kept Tuesday's momentum going strong at Boundary Park on Saturday, a Brett Pitman finish enough to see off Oldham Athletic, thanks to a penalty stop from new boy Ryan Allsop. Eddie Howe shuffled the pack slightly, starting the returning from injury Charlie Daniels in the full back position at the expense of Matt Richie - who himself was sporting an impressive head bandage after ....

Pitman Penalty Sinks Stevenage

AFC Bournemouth returned to winning ways on a cold Tuesday evening in Stevenage.It was far from a vintage Cherries performance, with Stevenage looking fairly poor, and the visitors wasting a number of chances in much the same way as the recent home games. Eddie Howe made a couple of changes from the defeat to Doncaster. In came Wes Fogden on the right of midfield, replacing Josh McQuoid, and ....

All Rover Bar The Shouting

The Cherries poor form continued at Dean Court this Saturday afternoon as Eddie Howe's side once again passed a visiting team all over the park only to find a stubborn and effective (if unremarkable) defence more than a match for their forwards. A third straight home defeat to top half opposition leaves the Cherries already tenuous automatic promotion dreams clinging by the smallest of ....

Saint Barnard Saves Cherries' Red Faces

AFC Bournemouth's Football League One campaign got off to a point-scoring start as Southampton loanee Lee Barnard headed home a timely equaliser at Fratton Park. An accurate ball in from Simon Francis was powerfully nodded home from close range with time running out on a visiting side that had looked threatening for much of the game, but lacked that bit of quality in the box. And if it weren't ....

Penalties - Same Old Bull!

It is with an air of inevitability given that this is being written the day following a Cherries penalty shoot-out in the first round of the Capital One Cup that there was to be no progression to the second round of the competition. The side's record in shoot-outs over recent years has been nothing short of dire, and in spite of some improved penalty taking at the Kassam Stadium, the end result ....

Same Old Bournemouth, Same Old Story

AFC Bournemouth’s long journey to North Lincolnshire produced a deserved away point for the visitors, but in many ways it was only profligacy in front of goal that prevented them from taking all three. Donal McDermott’s rehabilitation as a professional footballer after recent weeks of off-field troubles continued with a well-placed strike towards the end of the first half, with the hosts ....

Cherries Out The League Cup

Tuesday night saw AFCB slip out of the Carling Cup in a 2-0 defeat at Southampton's St Mary's stadium. Goals from former youth teamer Adam Lallana and Alex Chamberlain saw off the Cherries to book the League One side's place in the Second round.Eddie Howe stuck with the 4-5-1 formation at St Mary's, with the side trying their hardest to beat their much-favoured hosts in their own back yard. It ....

Charlton Addick-ted To First Day Wins

For the third consecutive season, Charton Athletic claimed three points to start the season as the Cherries faltered on their return to League One. A determined second half display, much of it against a ten-man home side, was not enough to inspire the first points of the season for the Cherries.It was a tough start for the Cherries, who struggled to adapt to a 4-5-1 formation against a ....

Shakers Dead And Bury'd

First day victories are a rare accomplishment for AFC Bournemouth. Only once in the past decade had the Cherries tasted first day success, which makes the three point haul at last season's Play-off contenders Bury all the more impressive. Goals from Brett Pitman, Anton Robinson and Mark Molesley brought the 300+ away fans to their feet on a few more occasions than even the optimists behind the ....

Burying Our Heads In The Sand?

It's one of those times to be following AFCB at the moment. Nobody's really that sure what's going on, and to be frank, you suspect that increasingly fewer people care. For after yet another re-jigging of the club infrastructure and the collapse of another chairman's stint at the club the majority of people are still asking themselves why they should bother.On the field, times are tough. Despite ....

Has The Time Come To Push The Button?

A pair of humiliating errors on the part of on-loan goalkeeper David Button was all that came between the Cherries and a priceless three points at Sincil Bank. On a day that all the teams around them stumbled, AFCB failed to capitalise despite holding a two goal lead with a handful of minutes remaining. With Eddie Howe making only a single change from the eleven which started the 1-1 draw ....

Better Late Than Never

Not just this match report! It was a strike with time running down that saw AFCB snatch a richly-deserved point at the Recreation Ground in Aldershot on Saturday. With a plethora of chances at both ends of the ground, an entertaining attacking game gave those that made the trip to the far side of Hampshire something to be enthused about. It could have been even better for Kevin Bond's ....

Calamitous Defending Costs Cherries Dear

Cardiff City left Dean Court with a place in the second round of the League Cup on Tuesday evening after an opening twenty minutes to forget for AFCB. 2008 FA Cup finalists Cardiff sealed their progression with two goals in the first twelve minutes from Paul Parry, after the Cherries defence conspired to hand the visitors an early two-goal advantage. Facing a strong Bluebirds line-up including ....

Cherries Let Lead Slip

The opening fixture of the League Two campaign ended in disappointment for Kevin Bond's side as the Cherries let slip a single goal lead in the final minute. Darren Anderton's magnificent first-half opener was not enough for a Bournemouth team that struggled to deal with the visitors' strength and movement off the ball. Handing Scott Guyett, Sammy Igoe and Schwan Jalal debuts at Dean Court, ....

The Wind In Their Wings

In order to understand the complex and irrational behaviour of a football supporter, you really have to be one. Even then, I am at a loss as to why I bothered going to Oldham on a Tuesday night, whatever the occasion. Especially once the game had been played. For this fixture was amongst the least entertaining I’ve ever had the misfortune to watch. With prevailing conditions making Boundary ....

Leeds Defeat Cherries

The Cherries returned from a first visit to Elland Road with the same return they have secured on each of their previous three visits – nothing. No lack of effort from a side that lacked natural movement and finishing, just not enough to overcome a team that showed they can play when they feel like it. Up against a Leeds team containing a David Prutton looking buoyant and determined to ....

Vokes Hangs Hartlepool's Monkey

A brace from eighteen-year old Sam Vokes secured three vital points for AFC Bournemouth in their continued battle against the drop from League One. An otherwise workmanlike display from the Cherries saw them leapfrog Luton Town into 22nd, some ten points adrift of safety. Kevin Bond raised few eyebrows with a team selection that saw Jason Pearce sidelined at the expense of Danny Hollands. In ....

Cherries Crumble To Cheltenham

The Cherries capitulated in the face of pressure against one-time relegation rivals Cheltenham Town at Dean Court on Saturday. Despite numerous chances, no lack of determination and a two goal first half lead, what was seemingly tactical incompetence from the manager dragged the Cherries down. For the turning point in this fixture was a simple substitution. Throughout the majority of the ....

Shrimpers Pip Cherries

Southend edged out the Cherries in what was a surprisingly even encounter at Roots Hall. A first goal in a Bournemouth shirt from Jason Pearce, levelling just before the half-time break, was not enough for the Cherries. Shrimpers’ star Lee Barnard and recent acquisition James Walker grabbed the goals as the hosts secured maximum points against a wasteful Cherries side. Despite all the ....

It's All Rover When Said And Don

Football officials rarely get themselves into the fans’ good books. There’s always some form of irritation: missing an offside, the crucial decision that goes against you or perhaps just their general on-pitch demeanour. Andy D’Urso and his sidekicks encompassed all that is infuriating about football match officials in Tuesday’s encounter with high-flying Doncaster Rovers. ....

Mad As Hatters

Or quite the opposite, in fact. Saturday’s encounter between two relegation-threatened sides in the grip of administration was always to be a strange one. Hence, there were five goals. The Cherries grabbed four of them, and bizarre defensive, goalkeeping or refereeing errors played their part in all bar one. It was far from a typical relegation battle or atmosphere. For whilst the visiting ....

Cherries Fell Forest At Dc

A first-half brace from Sam Vokes saw off a feeble Nottingham Forest at Dean Court on Saturday. In doing so, popular forward Vokes became the club’s top scorer this term with seven. The Crewe Alexandra target had turned down the opportunity to move to AFCB’s relegation rivals only a couple of days prior, but shed any doubt as to where his efforts were targeted with a lively ....
