THE 2007/08 SEASON saw the Cherries stage the most unlikely of comebacks to come within a whisker of League One survival. With 7 games to go AFC Bournemouth were dead and buried. Fourteen points adrift they had to overcome the almost insurmountable task of winning all 7 games to stand any chance of staying up.  Drop any points along the way and the Cherries would almost inevitably be doomed to relegation.

The seemingly impossible kicked off with home victories against Tranmere and Millwall, but it was the next game against Champions elect Swansea that brought the real drama. The Cherries gifted Swansea a goal in the 50th minute and as the clock ticked towards the 90th minutes it looked like AFC Bournemouth were doomed. But the amazing happened in the space of a minute. Joe Partington first nodded home to equalize before Jo Kuffour swept home from close range to score the winner and grab the very valuable three points.
