    Ahead of what looks to be an enthralling rollercoaster season, Tigz, Sam and Tom are at the Pear at Parley to analyse AFC Bournemouth's incomings and outgoings, whilst taking an honest to look at where Cherries' recruitment team might really need to do some work... It's our second stint in the Premier League, but this time it's different - and there are ten reasons why. Apart from the obvious Eddie Howe factor, for 2022/23 - Cherries will be a different beast. With this in mind, the boys run over the reasons why this season's campaign will simply not be the same as 2015/16! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to all our platforms.

    Two very different performances from Boscombe sees contrasting views from AFC Bournemouth fans, who firstly react at full-time after beating Bristol City 3-2 in a scoreline which possibly flattered the opposition. Aside from a few minutes at either end of the game, Bournemouth looked sharp and strong, and whilst the Robins showed spurts of impetus, the Cherries defence and Mark Travers were up to the task, with the latter providing a crucial save when it mattered! Contrast this though with a poor poor showing in the Midlands. Sam, Tom, Jeff and Steve react in a windy West Bromwich after AFC Bournemouth put in a poor showing against the Baggies at The Hawthorns, mustering not even a single shot on target. It was a display that lacked tempo, desire or technical quality, and whilst the winning streak under referee Keith Stroud's stewardship came to an end, the turgid run against Steve Bruce however continues. Plus, reaction from the four buccaneering Cherries who travelled over six days to deliver humanitarian aid INSIDE Ukraine to people who people who have needed it the most,. The boys re-live the trip with their absorbing stories of concern, comedy, and coincidences.

The quartet are working with the charity "Help from Bournemouth to Ukraine", and amongst them is former Cherries defender and assistant manager - now AFC Bournemouth summariser for BBC Radio Solent - John "Willo" Williams. The journey will take four days, 2,500 miles, 13 hours of ferry crossings and 40 hours of driving to get the supplies to those who need them the most. They will be taking 2 vans which will mean that they can take 7 tonnes of aid. Travelling will be Willo, Simon Cable, Gary Francis, and David Joyner. Their time is free, and will take two days off work and then drive through the weekend to get there and back; however, the fuel is expensive, the van hire, the insurance and incidentals are quite high and the closer they can get to our target, the closer they can get aid to those who need it the most.

Firstly, Cherries lose 2-1 at Preston North End thanks to a winner from danger-man Emil Riis, which was compounded shortly after with the sending off of Scott Parker and Adam Smith. Jamal Lowe scored the first goal of the game after a Lilywhites defensive mix-up, but the home side equalised soon after with a sharp Cameron Archer finish, which laid the foundations for a deserved North End victory. Then, in the week, baffled Cherries fans are yet again questioning how on earth we are managing to keep our heads above water after yet another abject performance against a side which, whilst dogged, were there for the taking. Peterborough are bottom for a reason, and whilst they showed *some* resolve, it was a match where AFC Bournemouth were ultimately the architects of their own demise - the 1-1 result was poor from us. Lack of tempo, misplaced passes, no fluidity, no risk taking, and a lack of responsibility. Worrying times ahead of a crucial campaign run-in.

The performance was bad. Manager of "the Wood" Luke Garrard suggested that they'd need to be at their best and Cherries would have to put at their best in order to cause an upset. In reality, whilst AFC Bournemouth stuck to their side of the bargain (and some), Boreham Wood effectively didn't need to get out of third gear.

In the Second half, we had our period of control and looked good, but normally, if a team comes back from two down they go on to win it (if there is a deciding goal).

In the weekend, the Lilywhites won 2-1, thanks to goals from Ben Whiteman and Ali McCann, which sandwiched a Philip Billing equaliser. The loss also brought Scott Parker's side's five-match winning run to an end and cut their lead at the top of the table to two points as his former club Fulham recorded an impressive 7-0 win at Blackburn. On Saturday though, Boscombe weathered an early spell of possession from the visitors to break them down with a Dom Solanke opener.

Bournemouth put in a shift, and Scott Parker’s class of 2021 have now equalled a long-standing club record as Dominic Solanke’s first-half double provided the springboard for a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town. Victory, cemented by Lloyd Kelly’s first goal of the season, extended to 14 games the Cherries’ unbeaten start to the season, a feat achieved in 1961 when the club were in the third tier. Sam Davis, Tom Jordan, Neil Dawson and Mr Tigz take you through the weekend's action. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to all our platforms.

    Sam Davis and Jeff Hayward spend just under an hour looking at two very different performances over the last few days as AFC Bournemouth gained maximum points from our trips to Bristol City and Stoke City. This includes a certain hat-tip to a reporter of the latter club, whose report on the game - it's fair to say - won't win any literary awards! Don’t let the result fool you, AFC Bournemouth absolutely annihilated Bristol City today in a performance which exuded control and class - as the Robins were beaten 2-0 at Ashton Gate, and with Dom Solanke being clinical at the Bet365 - it was six points from six on the road! There is stats, praise, and wonderment and ponderment - as Boscombe go clear at the top of the Championship - you love to see it! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to all our platforms.

    In our last league game, Bournemouth overcame a deficit for the first time this season as Solanke and Billing netted inside three minutes to ensure that Boscombe go top of the table at a rain-soaked Dean Court against Sheffield United. Fans were nervously optimistic despite the bore-draw against Peterborough, and in the pub beforehand, 2-1 seemed to be the fashionable scoreline. True to form, Bournemouth delivered - and whilst Solanke's penalty levelled things up, Billings effort effectively killed the game. When Phil Bill scores, Cherries do not lose! In this podcast Sam Davis speaks with Neil Dawson, Jeff Hayward, Mr Tigz and Tom Jordan about the crucial win. Plus, Jeff Hayward chats to Marc Billing, father of AFC Bournemouth BALLER Philip in this candid interview about being a parent of a professional footballer. What's it like being the parent of a player that has overcome tough times to stick it out and then go on to tear it up in one of the most popular leagues in the world? What's it like to see your son getting criticism, is it hard to bite your tongue? And does he feel when the crowd are singing his name and loving every minute of seeing him in action? We talk to him about Philip's rise in football, the social media criticism, the amount of input he has with his moves, and the pride he feels at seeing his son succeed.

    Bournemouth survived a second-half fightback to defeat Luton Town 2-1 to return to the Championship summit, so in this pod, Sam Davis and Mr Tigz get together to chat over the weekend's antics - as resilience and steadfastness were once again key to retaining the top spot! As has happened in recent home contests against Blackpool and QPR, Cherries took a comfortable-looking 2-0 lead into half-time at Vitality Stadium. However, the second half was anything but... So why? Why do we do it to ourselves? The boys dissect the game, talk about Dom Solanke's goal celebration vs other iconic Cherry post-goal merriment, plus we question why Scott Parker seemingly likes to apply the handbrake when we are cleaerly demolishing teams!

    The match against the Bluebirds at the Cardiff City Stadium was always going to pose a unique challenge For The Cherries, not least because the majority of their side were over 6ft - but enough of that tall story, because a Mick McCarthy side is always going to well drilled, work hard, and they’ll also be dogged. So to be able to get three points of the Welsh side would be massive, and whilst most of us were hoping we’d be chinking our glasses in celebratory mood with a "Iechyd Da", many Boscombe fans admitted that they’d actually be fairly content with a point. But Bournemouth showed a side to their game they should be really proud of as we created a host of chances in a clinical and formulaic display, and when you look at the way the home side were stunted, people of a certain tactical mindset might look back at this game as the performance of the season so far. In this podcast, Sam Davis is joined by Tom Jordan and Jeff Hayward to discuss events in South Wales as the Cherries came away with an excellent 1-0 win.
