The Cherries must keep home form going against Spurs

We know that the games coming up are big games for AFCB. The teams are the recognised Premier League heavyweights that habitually take points off of other teams on a regular basis. But the names of Spurs and Liverpool should not hold fear for our lads anymore. They should be relishing this time as it is special for them and for the club and the support that I saw at the Etihad was a sure indication that everyone is behind them and wanting them to provide some shocks in this season.

The games are coming quick now and each seems to be as hard if not harder than the last. Spurs beat Man City 4-1 at White Hart Lane a few weeks ago and yet they have only won three of their nine league games. What they ensure is that they don't get beat very often and so AFCB know that they will be in a game against a side that is used to getting results. Their only league defeat has been to Man Utd back on 8 August.
These are special times for AFCB's players, but they still want to win games.
Sometimes I think it is best that the players forget their league position or points total and just go out there and perform. I'd probably give that message out to our players now. They have to be excited about playing Tottenham Hotspur and seeing if they can make it hard for a Spurs team who have players in from like Erik Lamela and Dele Alli. Harry Kane is still sitting on one goal this season and their confidence is not as sky high as some other teams having been beaten in midweek.

It's all about how AFCB play though at home. If they can dictate the game then they can get the win. These are the games that can pull them away from the bottom three. UTCIAD!
