As the new Premier League season approaches and memories of the Euros fade (not quick enough for our liking) we are left in a footballing void.
So what do we do when there is no football to watch? We look back at the season just gone and remember the magic moments, the big wins, last gasp draws and conveniently forget about the less memorable matches.
2015/16 was a very big season in AFC Bournemouth’s history. There were a host of highlights that will live long in the memories of AFC Bournemouth supporters and the annals of history. But which match sticks in the memory? Which game brought the most thrills and spills? Which game defied the odds? Which game was all of this and more? We relive the five Premier League matches that are etched into our memories and as always know which one is top of our list, but which is top of yours?
WEST HAM (a) – 4-3
Callum Wilson Bournemouth’s goal machine was on fire in this game. He was just starting to show exactly how good he was and a hat-trick in only his third Premier League game proved how good he was.
EVERTON (h) – 3-3
A poor first-half performance meant that the Cherries were already 2-0 down at half-time. With 10 minutes to go the score was still 2-0 and then the fun began. Smith scored a scorcher, Stanislas sent in the eqauliaser and at 90 minutes it was 2-2, but there’s more as we all know.
CHELSEA (a) – 1-0
Tinpot Bournemouth away to Jose Mourinho’s Premier League champions. Surely there could only ever be one winner. There was and it wasn’t the aforementioned Premier League champions. Glenn Murray you will forever live on in the hearts and minds of every AFC Bournemouth fan.
MAN UTD (h) – 2-1
Riding high after victory against Chelsea, surely AFC Bournemouth couldn’t do the double and beat the mighty Man Utd as well. A happy start to December was about to become even happier.
SOUTHAMPTON (h) – 2-0
Taking on neighbours (and some might say local rivals) Southampton in the Premier League for the first time ever (at home) you really want to beat them. And that’s exactly waht happened. Didn’t hear much from the usually vocal Southampton fans the next day.
