99 - Same Old St Andrews

Bournemouth have never lost at St Andrews, and on Friday night in front of the cameras, this records continued in style, as Cherries put in a solid performance which showed a lot of promise to overcome Coventry 3-1. Whilst the showing was strong, the same typical traits of having large spells of possession without scoring were evident, but whilst the Sky Blues equalised in the first half, the second half was a different story. Indeed, the issues in the first half were corrected in the second with the help of midfield maestro Dan Gosling who scored a couple of goals to secure the win. It was a relaxed, it was routine, and it was a great victory against a team which had no Danjuma, no King, no Kelly, no Stanislas, and no Riquelme... positive signs as we head into the international break! In this podcast, Sam Davis is joined by Jeff Hayward to discuss the game.

98 - Danjuma The Difference!

Arnaut Danjuma proved the difference on Sunday in a resilient AFC Bournemouth performance which saw us overcome Norwich City 1-0, thanks to a superb turn and shot from our Dutch delight. The away side pressed relentlessly in the second half, but a steadfast showing from the Cherries helped us to hold on to all three points - condemning the Canaries to their second defeat of the season in all competitions. In the podcast, Sam Davis is joined by Jeff Hayward to discuss the showing at Dean Court - where we witnessed spirit, grit, and an improved focus - something which was missing from our last league encounter against Middlesbrough. Also in this episode, we're joined by North Stand Season Ticket Holder Tom Jordan to discuss the departure of Harry Arter, an AFC Bournemouth hero and legend - plus, we go over our recent exit of the Carabao Cup at the hands of Manchester City. Plus, of course, Do You Remember... and this week, there's a "Citeh" themed question too!

97 - The Bare Necessi-Tees

At the weekend Cherries travelled to Teesside in a performance against Middlesbrough that garnered a point, but it could have been so much more. Instead Bournemouth displayed the bare necessities on the pitch, with a lacklustre performance showing against a side that were toying with Championship relegation just two months ago. Whilst a goal for Dom ensured that our attacking talisman got off the mark in the Championship, a late equaliser from Boro left Cherries fans cursing missed opportunities, so whilst there was bitterness in Bournemouth, there was rejoicing at the Riverside, as 1000 fans inside the stadium witnesses their side picking up their first points of the season. In this podcast Sam Davis is joined by Jeff Hayward to discuss the 1-1 draw, plus we look forward to the Carabao Cup Third Round tie at Manchester City, where there could be a reunion with a certain Nathan Ake!

96 - Rovers Returned... But Three Points Earned

Cherries got back to winning ways on Saturday at home to Blackburn Rovers in a satisfying performance which saw a tentative start, the usual Bournemouth mistakes, but then a return to kamikaze Cherries brand of football that we know, and (I think) love! If we get the points, people call it entertaining, if we don’t they call it reckless. Outscoring teams in order to win games! We called it! Rovers kept returning - firing not one but two equalisers, but Danjuma was the difference, ensured an opening day three points for the Cherries with a pearler of a striker late on into the game. Jeff Hayward and Sam Davis discuss events at the Vitality.

95 - Benfica Tests and Championship Guests

AFC Bournemouth's pre-season finally got under way on Sunday against a team with plenty of European pedigree by the way of Portugese side Benfica. Whilst Cherries went down 2-1, there was a mixture of encouraging signs twinned with the familiarity of some "same old Bournemouth" moments - we wouldn't have it any other way would we? To dissect matters on the pitch, Sam Davis speaks to Tom Jordan and Neil Weedon about the game. Later on the show, Jeff Hayward joins us to preview 2020/21 in the Championship - and we have the help of two respected names in sports journalism who give us a tremendous insight on the division AFC Bournemouth will (hopefully) be gracing this season... Firstly, Daniel Storey - a football writer and broadcaster whose work can often be seen on the BBC, in the iPaper, as well as doing lots for the Premier League, Football 365 and beyond - he also happens to be a devoted Forest supporter! Plus, we are delighted to be joined by Nancy Frostick, who is the Sheffield Wednesday writer for The Athletic, and who has also penned articles for The i Paper too - having a wealth of experience covering the Championship!
