Tough October, December and April for the Cherries!

I always like to look at the Premier League fixtures as soon as they come out with great anticipation - well we are level with everyone else and things look great. You may not get very far before you see a game where you can't see the Cherries getting anything from it, but you can at least start thinking about organising weekend for those long away trips.  
Together anything is possible!
The start that AFCB have had in their last two Premier League seasons has been steady but nothing exceptional which was probably to be expected. Now this next season is a bit more interesting in that only Man City of the recognised top six sides are to pay a visit to Dean Court early before things get a bit difficult looking at October and the Christmas period.

Still, I'd rather have some of the more challenging teams early on and AFCB have shown that they can now hold their own against the best teams on occasions. Usually it is two or three games before AFCB manage to get a win but there is a fair chance that the opening games against WBA and Watford could give the Cherries a good start and although the run-in during April will also be a difficult period, there is less to frighten Eddie Howe's team now that they have experienced rough periods in the division.

Chelsea will come visiting on 28 October and the next away trip at Newcastle should be well supported by AFCB fans who will be looking to see how Matt Ritchie is playing among others. The first round of South coast derby's will also be big crowd drawers with Brighton visiting early on 16th September and the Saints making an early Christmas visit on 2 December, something tells me the kick-offs of these two matches are likely to change.

Well we know the fixtures now and the excitement is soon going to grow as the transfers get going, but don't forget the club needs your support next season and every voice helps the team to stay in the Premier League. See you there!

Just in case you all think I'm not working hard enough I am now writing freelance articles for HITC. You can see my first few articles on their site already - Troy Deeney, possible England U21 signing for Brighton and where should Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain play his football?
