in the top division for the first time in their history
Was 6 years ago to the day on Saturday, when Bournemouth and Grimsby fans celebrated Football League survival together at Dean Court. Now we could be facing the prospect of having three entire divisions and a triple digit amount of places between us, league position wise. Blue Bee certainly makes a fair point with regards to them being bankrolled and then there's the whole going into admin vs paying your debts back with regards to which is more beneficial/morally correct argument. However, Bournemouth are so likeable as a club and this is indeed a marvelous achievement. If they're anywhere near as exciting to watch as they have been over the past few seasons then they'll be making the pundits gush next season. Whenever I've seen them they seem to carve out so many chances, often without exposing themselves at the back. Their goal difference this season is insane (+95 -45 now, I think?). Looking forward to seeing more of them.
Didn't catch the name by any chance? We've had periods of going through chairmen at a rate of knots so it sounds possible.Going up to 18,000 now from what I've read.
At work last night I had a guy in the bar claiming he was Bournemouth chairman for about 6 months, no idea if he was trolling or not.

Regarding the ground, nothing confirmed.. Club have been considering various options, but we have various planning regulation constraints being on parkland and hemmed in by housing on two sides which imposes height restrictions . I'd hope to at least add a couple thousand to the capacity in the short term, but doubt it'll be anything significant any time soon. 18k is the theoretical capacity we reckon we could achieve at the site if we have the council on side and the time/money etc. The media exposure could help persuade the council.
