75 - A Rallying Cry

1/19/2020
More
Each and every game that goes past, the need for a performance and togetherness becomes more imperative. Against Brighton on Tuesday, we will be seeing a pivotal match in our Premier League history, one which might potentially have reverberations in more ways than we expect. It is must win - end of. In this podcast, Sam Davis is joined by Jeff Hayward as we analyse the weekend's embarrassment at Carrow Road as Cherries literally handed it to the home side with a moment of madness that...

74 - Flags-A-Plenty But Running On Empty

1/12/2020
More
In order to improve the atmosphere at Dean Court, AFC Bournemouth put out 5000 flags in order to inspire the home supporters to cheer the lads towards three points, however, the team that appeared in red and black on Sunday looked anything but inspired in an insipid performance which left the majority speechless. On Sunday the misery continued for Eddie Howe’s men as AFC Bournemouth lost 0-3 at home to Watford. It was a poor game which Bournemouth never looked likely to get anything out of...

73 - All the Twenties

1/5/2020
More
As we enter 2020, having scored 20 goals, Cherries sit in the Premier League's relegation zone on 20 points - and after a poor showing against West Ham at the London Stadium, Bournemouth fans were looking for something to cheer about as we welcomed Luton Town to the Vitality Stadium in an FA Cup Third Round tie. Thankfully, after the 4-0 drubbing at the hands of the Iron, the scoreline at Dean Court was a reverse, and we came out 4-0 winners courtesy of Phillip Billing (2), Callum Wilson,...

72 - Decent Decade But Cherries Fade

12/29/2019
More
What an incredible decade it has been for AFC Bournemouth. This time ten years ago we were entertaining Torquay at Dean Court, with Pitman and Feeney on the scoresheet - and oh how we'd have loved to have that attacking prowess on Saturday, as Cherries got shat on by the Seagulls, in a 2-0 win for Brighton - a scoreline which really mattered, yet barely flattered. It was another horror show that didn’t contain much joy - goals from Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Aaron Mooy sealed AFCB's fate in a...

71 - Burnley Bingo? Completed It Mate!

12/22/2019
More
Clarets fans were gleefully posting their bingo cards on Saturday evening after their 1-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth at Dean Court, as Cherries fans echoed the (apparently) much used Burnley-isms such as anti-football, long ball, dirty tactics and many more - completing a full-house, with the Lancashire side going home happy after their (probably deserved) narrow victory.

70 - Jingle All The Way

12/15/2019

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way - oh what fun it is to see the Bournemouth win away! Cherries at the weekend astonished the naysaying media, the bookies, and even their own supporters - with a phenomenal performance at Stamford Bridge emerging 1-0 victors against Chelsea, and in this podcast, Jeff Hayward and Sam Davis dissect the game with some analysis and opinion. There were many stand-out players, but Dan Gosling took the plaudits with a midfield masterclass, and who was...

69 - A Team Full Of Lermas

12/8/2019
More
Whilst it was a Saturday of misfortune for AFC Bournemouth aginst Liverpool, there was one player who was head and shoulders above the rest for the Cherries, with Jefferson Lerma shining bright in a performance which will have won him many plaudits. Sadly, the greatness of our Colombian Number 8 was overshadowed by a poor 3-0 home scoreline in a game which often looked like men against boys. Similarly, the day was not made much better due to a couple of injuries which has left Eddie Howe...

68 - Right Tune But Wrong Notes

12/1/2019
More
With Eddie Howe recently revealing to the Guardian that he is learning to play the piano, just like the Cherries campaign this season, he’ll not wanting to be hitting any bum notes. On Saturday though, Bournemouth were more flat than sharp, as we succumbed to a trio of goals from the on-song Spurs - their frontmen being instrumental in striking the right chord to ensure their fans marched home with smiles which, given their late generosity, were more minor than major. In this podcast Sam...

67 - Dropping Like A Stone

11/24/2019
More
Cherries poor form continued on Saturday in a frustratingly predictable performance against Wolves which saw us go down to ten men and concede two sloppy goals in the first half. A fightback gave us some hope in the second 45, however it ended 2-1 to the away side - a scoreline which ultimately flattered us, and sees Cherries continue to drop down the table like a stone. In this podcast Sam Davis speaks with Jeff Hayward and Neil Dawson to gauge the reaction on all things AFC Bournemouth -...

66 - A Game Of Three Thirds

11/10/2019

AFC Bournemouth's topsy-turvy campaign continued at the weekend in a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle, a match which saw the good, the bad and the ugly - a microchasm of our season in just ninety minutes. There was thirty minutes of attacking flair, a half hour of individual errors and catastrophic defending, and then a remaining third where we simply could not penetrate the rigid and disciplined defence of the home side. In this podcast, Jeff Hayward joins Sam Davis to discuss events at St James...

As Cherries fans celebrated a 1-0 win over Manchester United, supporters seemed jubilant at seeing the return of a menacing Josh King and Ryan Fraser, who, whilst not perfect, looked like they are getting back to the levels we have come to expect.

64 - Woulda Shoulda Coulda

10/27/2019

It was yet again another missed opportunity to prove ourselves as being “improved on last season”, but with draws against bottom of the league Watford and newly-promoted Norwich, was it simply a case of a deflating weekend being masked by a false league position? In this week's show, we go over the drab draw at Vicarage Road, with seasoned-Cherry Neil Dawson joining Sam Davis to make sense of the goalless encounter, which, had it not been for Saints 9-0 home drubbing by Leciester the night...

It might be considered a lazy narrative, but nothing seems more appropriate to describe Cherries trip to the Emirates against Arsenal on Sunday, as Bournemouth fans were treated to two very different 45 minute periods. In a match short of quality, the Gunners emerged with all three points as a David Luiz header separated the sides in a frustrating affair in North London. This week, Sam Davis is flying solo on the podcast, and takes you on a journey to Arsenal and back, stopping via the...

It was Desmond 2-2 at Dean Court where AFC Bournemouth succumbed to an impressive West Ham United to claim a deserved yet frustrating point. This week Jeff Hayward and Sam Davisetake us through the analysis of Saturday's performanced against the Iron as Bournemouth ended up drawing 2-2 in a contest that was ultimately decided by VAR. A Josh King goal which was disallowed then allowed, a Nathan Ake strike which was ruled to be offside, and then a questionable decision on Josh again towards...

Cherries went down 3-1 to Leicester City at the weekend in a controversial match which should have seen the home side down to 10 men. In a very inconsistent refereeing performance , the officials decided that a Youri Tielemans's challenge on Callum Wilson should not be awarded with a red card, despite the fact the England striker nearly had his ankle snapped in half. In today's episode, Jeff and Sam discuss the finer points of VAR, the abject nature of the Cherries reent performances, plus...
