Soccer Bournemouth

Ten years after they went into administration, Bournemouth has earned a reputation as one of the fixtures in the Premier League. It can be recalled that it was about this time in 2008 that Bournemouth was getting ready to play in League Two. But since Eddie Howe has taken over the club, he has led the Cherries back to the Premier League.

Despite heavy spending during the previous summer, Bournemouth remained a team in the middle of the pack. They started the season very well but could not sustain the pace because they were inconsistent throughout the entire season. The spending wasn’t like in previous years this past summer as Howe has chosen to maximize the existing talent level that he has on the team.

Bournemouth is ranked 16th in the EPL with a  -3 Goal Difference. The club has scored a total of five goals already this season which ties them for 10th overall and they have conceded 8 total goals, tied for 17th overall,  in four games played. Bournemouth also ranks 18th in the EPL with just one assist to boast.

Midfielder Harry Wilson has scored two goals for Bournemouth this season while forwards Joshua King and Callum Wilson each have found the back of the net once this year. The team’s only assist was delivered by Ryan Fraser and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has given up eight goals with 12 saves in four appearances.
