The Cherries journey into the the Premiership for the very first time means that AFC Bournemouth will be mixing with the English elite on level terms every week.
History dictates that rarely will have AFC Bournemouth crossed swords with most Premiership teams. Our league status has ensured that we were one of the lower league teams dreaming of pulling out one of the big boys in the major cup competitions. Would it be Arsenal, Liverpool, Man Utd, all teams we have taken on and famously beaten once.
Here we get ready for the upcoming season with a look at AFC Bournemouth’s head to head record, pick the best fans sites for essential info and five to follow, and banter with, on Twitter. We kick-off with the giants of English football – Manchester United.
LAST TIME WE MET
FEB 22nd 1989 – FA CUP R5R
MANCHESTER UNITED 1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 0
It was over 25 years ago when AFC Bournemouth met Man Utd in the fifth round of the FA Cup. A 1-1 draw at Dean Court with Trevor Aylott getting the homes side’s strike saw a replay at Old Trafford four days later. There was to be no glory or goals for the Cherries as they bowed out 1-0.
It was the FA Cup again that brought the mighty Man Utd and AFC Bournemouth together again in the 1984/85 season. The Cherries were soundly beaten 3-0 at Old Trafford, revenge perhaps, for the 2-0 humiliation, and famous upset, at Dean Court the previous season.
