10 cup finals for the Cherries to go

It's that time in the season when Willo usually has his first look at the fixtures to come and what might just be achieved this season. I guess he will have a happy smile on his face when he does look at the table and those remaining cup final fixtures that AFCB have ahead of them. In some ways it is the best and worst part of the season, as if you play badly everything can fall away in just a few games, but if you get it right to peak at this time when you're already in a great spot then the rewards are almost unimaginable for a club like AFCB.
The Fulham win was massive for AFCB and now they have momentum.
Planning out the next 10 games though is rather a lot to take in one go and I expect that Eddie will be looking at the games in small clusters of two and three matches and trying not to look too far ahead. The next two matches are perhaps not as likely to be as testing as the upcoming Middlesbrough and Ipswich matches, but they are no less important and Blackpool and Cardiff need to be beaten on the pitch and not in peoples' minds so there is lots of work to do and AFCB can't sit back and think things are just going to happen for them after the Wolves and Fulham wins.

I'm interested to see if some of those who have not played as much can play their part not just in training. The likes of Eunan O'Kane, Dan Gosling, Shaun MacDonald, Baily Cargill, Junior Stanislas, Ryan Fraser, Ian Harte, Elliott Ward and others may just be the ones that seal a promotion and there is every chance that one of them could do something very memorable in the next few weeks. We don't know what is to come but as long as everyone is prepared to excel if given their chance AFCB should be in a very good place. 

It is good to see that the AFCB youth team are also doing well under Carl Fletcher and Joe Roach.
