A.F.C. Bournemouth was formed in 1890 as Boscombe St. John’s Institute F.C., they adopted their current name in 1972. Nicknamed The Cherries they have played their home games at Dean Court since 1910. Their home colours are red and black striped shirts, with black shorts and socks.
A.F.C. Bournemouth has won the second and third tiers of English football, and was twice runners-up of the fourth tier. They have also won the Football League Trophy, and the Football League Third Division South Cup.
They have spent the majority of their history bouncing between the third and fourth tier of English football. Under manager Eddie Howe, they have risen through the leagues; 2015-16 being their first ever in England’s top division.
Their most famous victory was over holders Manchester United in the FA Cup in January 1984, while they were managed by Harry Redknapp.
We have only played the Cherries on seven occasions the first being a league Cup game on October 27th 1987 which we won 3-0. Since their arrival in the Premier League we have met them six times with an overall record of W4, D1, L1, GF14, GA6.
Our away record had been spotty and we lost the last game against them at Dean Court and have not won there since 2016.
Dean Court is going to be a tricky place to go coming back after an interlull.
First of all, thank you GN5 for the post.
What were Bournemouth called until 1972, surely not Boscombe?
Is that horrifically mutilated face on the right of the B &W pic Arry Redknapp?
Sooner we get rid of Puma and return to proper kits the better. Since when has Peppermint been an Arsenal colour? Shame on them.

Currently making waves in the jungle on UK tv.
Mint, According to Puma –
Puma describe the colour as ‘Biscay Green’ with a ‘Peacoat Navy’ detailing, which is a completely new shade for the club – though eagle-eyed fans may remember the combination from the 1982-83 ‘Bluebottle’ kit.
The shorts are navy, with navy-hooped green socks completing the look.
VP. Thank you. Still a crap kit.
can you imagine Eddie Howes pre match talk –
“Are you going to lose to a bunch of guys wearing mint, what an embarrassmint”
and the sledging on the pitch, “men in mint”, “minty fresh”, “its not mint to be”, ” give him encourage mint”,
In the commentary, “lots of movemint out there”
I am impressed with Eddie Howe –
Spending just over £5m for all three of Wilson (26yrs), Fraser (24yrs) and King (26yrs) who have scored 13 goals and laid on 12 assists in 33 league appearances between them this season.
Bournemouth sit 6th
Meanwhile over at Arsenal, we have PEA (30yrs), Laca (27yrs) and Ozil (28yrs) coming in at a combined £148.9m aand this season, they have scored 15 goals with five assists between them in 34 appearances
And we are 5th
The difference will be how Bournemouth go against top 6 teams
Tony Adams – legend as an Arsenal player. More like an Arse since!”Teddy Sherringham just as good a player as Denis Bergkamp”. Are you sure you haven’t fallen off the wagon, Tony?
And Cheers again GN5
And a further cheers to those who managed to keep the run going every day throughout, yet another, interlull. I chipped in with – One Headline Post. Hmmm.
Either Chelsea are playing terribly or Spurs are a really good team., they should be 6 or 7 ahead.
We will find out soon
Never nice to see the spuds win but at least another unbeaten record goes.
Ah, manure death by a 1000 draws….
Is anyone else finding the site almost unusable if you’re using a phone because of all the adverts loading?
I suppose WordPress would rather stop people from using their facilities if they won’t pay for them.
As you say, matchday.
The Harry pic is simply repulsive, thankfully I have yet to breakfast.
I have the same problem with WordPress on my phone as well as my Ipad. And when using Safari, I have to log in for every single comment.
In safari isn’t there an option to offer to save passwords?
Watched the spud game last night, they were good, very good, its like having a dirty stain in my mind that I can’t get rid of.
Why do people use Safari? I use Chrome via my mac with add block, no probs at all.
chas. Yes, but it doesn’t work on the AA website.
LB. I use both Safari and Firefox.. Don’t know why I still use Safari – probably because I have so many bookmarks, history and other stuff.
There is a New Post
