Season's DVD should be a thriller for Cherries fans

I purchased the promotion winning season DVD in 2012-13 as a reminder of how AFCB managed their incredible run to second in the table. Now there is a new DVD out that highlights the team's first year back in the Championship (2013-14) for over 20 years. It is very hard to decide what the best highlight could be. Would it be the away performance at Reading perhaps, or the home win against promotion winning QPR or the comeback thumping of Millwall at Dean Court? Fans will have other games that they particularly want to see again and in the comfort of your own home with a free night to watch the Cherries the offer should seem tempting to many.
Elphick led the team out against QPR at Dean Court last
season in one of the highlight games for AFCB.

It will be strange to see Lewis Grabban appearing on some of those matches knowing that he won't be appearing in an AFCB shirt next season. I don't tire of seeing his 25 yard turn a shot to score past the Bolton keeper back in February.. The DVD will also show a reminder of the speed and trickery of Tokelo Rantie. I am still not sure how the team did not manage to win when two up against Middlesbrough after only a few minutes, but TK's pace frightened the Middlesbrough back line to death and his goal against Burnley away was simply stunning. I bet you'll enjoy Marc Pugh's celebration of his added time equaliser against Nottingham Forest again as we as Steve Cook's winner away against Barnsley, and his overhead kick against Ipswich should put a smile on your face.

There will also be some low points like Allsop's red card at Elland Road that was followed by Flahavan's fantastic penalty save. The Sheffield Wednesday home defeat is probably the game that will hurt the most as it ended any realistic chances that AFCB had for the play-offs. But I'll also have my eye's shut for the 6-1 spanking that Watford handed out to the Cherries last August, while thoughts of going up to Huddersfield next season for the first league game will hopefully give us all happier memories than what we will be left with on this DVD from last season at the John Smith's stadium.

You'll remember the day though when Liverpool came to Dean Court in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup and all the press around Luis Suarez, Stephen Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge. That day was perhaps eclipsed by the earlier visit of Real Madrid which will also be on the DVD, so we can look forward to seeing Ronaldo and co set about AFCB again. Hoepfully they show some of the warm up as Ronaldo was doing some great showboating.

It is also good to see that the price has been set a bit lower than last time at £12.50. It should give some of you a few hours of happy viewing before the start of next season. The AFCBDirect site also has the DVD available to order online. 

De Vere's Village Urban Resorts in Bournemouth is still enjoying World Cup viewings. If you want to go down for one of the quarter finals check out the complete game planner for the Victory pub and kitchen.
