I've got a golden ticket: meet the lucky winner going to watch AFC Bournemouth v Liverpool

Bournemouth Echo: I've got a golden ticket: meet the lucky winner going to watch AFC Bournemouth v Liverpool I've got a golden ticket: meet the lucky winner going to watch AFC Bournemouth v Liverpool

PASSIONATE football fan Chris Daw will watch AFC Bournemouth take on Liverpool today (Sat Jan 25) after winning the hottest tickets in town – courtesy of the Daily Echo.

The 37-year-old Allenbourne Middle School teacher had given up on getting tickets to the sought after cup tie when his wife Claire suggested he enter the Daily Echo’s competition.

And on Thursday Chris was told he had won and will be among the thousands watching the Cherries take on the Premier League giants.

Chris has followed Liverpool FC since childhood but also takes an interest in the Cherries. He said: “As soon as the draw was made my first thought was ‘How can I get tickets?’

“But I quickly realised how busy it would be and I saw the reports of how big the queues were. I had friends who were turned away because they were too far back in the queue to get tickets.

“I gave up on the idea but my wife didn’t. She saw the competition in the Echo and said I had nothing to lose by giving it a go.

“I didn’t hold out much hope so it was unbelievable to find out I had won. I’ve already shared the good news with my class and can’t wait to go now. It’s going to be a fantastic occasion.”

Im a LFC supporter and im in the Main Stand!

Ive been living in Bournemouth for 6 years and regularly fill my footballing fix by going to watch Bournemouth, I think you will find alot of people who go to watch Bournemouth arent born and bred Bournemouth supporters but they go and watch them cos their the local team.

If you dont like the fact that LFC supporters who have been putting money into the teams coffers for years are attending this match aswell, let us know, we will promptly stop going if were not wanted, although they can blame you when the average attendance drops by around 500 per match

500 per match?! What nonsense. When you watch other AFCB games you are not supporting the away team are you? That's the difference.

As I've already stated elsewhere, there aren't actually that many AFCB fans. Most "support Man Utd & Bournemouth", "Liverpool & Bournemouth" etc.
They attend Bournemouth as per the guy above to get their football fix because all the decent teams are too expensive and/or far away to attend on a regular basis.

Can you count these as Bournemouth fans? - No. This will be evident by the amount of "Cherries fans" who will be wearing Liverpool scarves both in & out of the ground this weekend.

However - stop them going to the AFCB matches nad the attendances will drop - by how many is impossible to tell but definitely in the hundreds.

Up the Cherries?? - yes when it suits them.

I think your living in dream land if you think your attendance is all solely home grown Bournemouth fans!

There is easily 500 a match that support other teams. As for supporting the away team, well, I ideally would like a draw tomorrow ready for a re-match at Anfield. It would be good for Bournemouth and I get to go up to Anfield for the first time in a couple of months, I will celebrate every goal by either team tomorrow even though I want Liverpool to win the tie overall.

steelpaul- you just don't get it,do you?
Keep your money to go to Anfield and support YOUR team. Stop being so patronising and doing us a favour.
Easy to support a Premierpoo team that has unlimited money and is far removed from the reality of supporting your local team employing British players.
I don't like Man U but I love FC United of Manchester. Real supporters who support their local team - not couch potatoes like you purporting to support a Club 200 miles away.

It's actually more like 265 miles, I should know, I make the journey at least ten times a year, would be more but it's an expensive habit, but yeah, I must be a couch potato fan, muppet!

Don't try and act like you know me, I've supported Liverpool since I was in nappies, I watch them home and away at every opportunity, I also have always gone to watch the local team in whatever town I've lived in, this includes bmth, Rotherham utd, Torquay and Crawley, proper grass routes football but I will always be Liverpool through and through.

I'm thankful that most bmth fans aren't as moronic as you, if they were, the fan base would deteriorate and it would reflect on the pitch, I personally have put at least a couple of grand into the clubs coffers, but still, couch potato fan I am, obviously
