AFCB have to stand up for themselves at St Marys

We have seen the good and the bad of AFCB this season. On their day they can beat anyone and yet they can also lose to anyone and give teams a good head start. The match this weekend against Southampton needs to mean something to the players, like it does to the fans. We have seen the slump in form too often in big games, but we want AFCB to succeed for once and put Southampton away to underline AFCB's position as the top southern club.
David Brooks could cap a great year with a starring performance at St Marys.
The text is a big one. Southampton will want to keep their run going and finish above AFCB. They are picking up points which is something we can't really consistently say about AFCB. The last away win against Brighton has to be seen as a platform that AFCB can play their best football on away grounds and against Southampton AFCB will need to stand up and fight for every ball.

The match could go very quickly with tackles flying in. Bournemouth have to be up for the challenge and see themselves as being the dominant side if they are to achieve anything. The atmosphere should be great and it's important the players are ready for it. It is an end of season game where it is just three points on offer but it means everything to Bournemouth fans to win this game. This is what the season has been building up to. There is the possibility of beating 46 points, but only if AFCB win against Southampton in my reckoning.


If Bournemouth only have one performance left in them this season, then this is the match where we want to see it. In a week when the Minus 17 documentary has been released and we remembered how AFCB used to get a result when everything was against them, I can't think of any better motivation for the players to honour that team with a win against Southampton this weekend. UTCIAD!
