AFC Bournemouth: Class of 2014 urged to seize the day by giant-killer Graham

Bournemouth Echo: CUP KING: Harry Redknapp was AFC Bournemouth manager when Cherries toppled Manchester United CUP KING: Harry Redknapp was AFC Bournemouth manager when Cherries toppled Manchester United

GIANT-killer Milton Graham has urged Eddie Howe’s men to “seize the day” and to have “no fear” when they try to write a new chapter in the Cherries record books.

Graham paved the way for one of the biggest FA Cup shocks in Cherries’ history when he opened the scoring in their 2-0 win over Manchester United in 1984.

His exploits helped Harry Redknapp’s team sink the holders in a third round tie with Cherries having experienced relatively lean fortunes in the cup since.

Howe’s class of 2014 will be bidding to emulate Redknapp’s heroes when they host Liverpool on Saturday (12.45pm).

Graham, a production supervisor for a power management company in Burton on the Wolds near Leicester, told the Daily Echo: “People still talk to me about the Manchester United game and it was more than 30 years ago. That tells you how much of a shock it was.

“It means the world to me to chat about it even now and I love reminiscing about that memorable day. My six-year-old grandson has a DVD of the game and it is great to watch it.

“My advice to the Bournemouth players would be to make sure they enjoy the day and don’t go on to the pitch with any fear. It will fly by and they need to make the most of it.

“I still get people saying to me how great it was to knock out Manchester United or United fans telling me how we broke their hearts on that day.

“A guy at work said he didn’t believe I had scored a goal to help beat Manchester United in the FA Cup. I just said fair enough and walked off.

"He collared me a couple of days later and said he was ever so sorry. It is something you can’t lie about and something which will stay with you forever.”

Graham, whose 16-year-old son Jordan is a member of the Leicester City Academy, also scored one of Cherries’ two goals when they won the Associate Members’ Cup against Hull City just months after they had dumped out Manchester United.

For some of our players this is an opportunity (dare to say of a life time) to shine and give their best hoping for an upset. AFCB has done it before against Man U (I was there on that memorable day) and before my time they did to one or two others so there is no reason why history cannot be repeated. I very much hope that no matter what we will get behind the team and urge them on. There is no doubt that the FA cup atmosphere in town so lets enjoy it while it last. Up the mighty Cherries

it would be good to be able to recreate the atmoshere of the cup that there was years ago, I was there for the cup run in the 50s and even the firsrt round match against Burton Albion the day was something to enjoy, was doing my National Service at he time but lucky enough to get a ticket for the Manchester United match and I do not think I have seen many AFCB performances better than that day even though we lost

If we are planning to go higher, these sorts of games will become more common place!! However, my view is, I look at it as if it's Madrid all over again. I'll enjoy the moment, and whatever happens happens. The unexpected can happen as we know, and I'm sure the players will enjoy a great occasion regardless. Certainly all part of a massive learning curve this season.... UTCIAD

I'm with you Pete. I intend to just enjoy the day for what it is. We're not expected to win so if we don't there's no surprise really, draw or win and we have exceeded expectations. I'm looking forward to a decent game of football, us giving a good account of ourselves and then turning our attention to the Huddersfield game on Tues which is more important as it plays a part in our Championship journey. What an ace season so far though and thank you to our owner Max, Eddie, Jas & the boys for that.

I will now offer my take on Saturday’s visit of Liverpool. For those of you that managed to get tickets I do hope you enjoy your day. I will be recording the coverage as I have been despatched to the Leicester v Middlesborough game.
.
However, if we play our normal game i.e. play football against them, they will murder us, as we would be playing into their hands. We could stifle them by sitting behind the ball, sit deep and park the ‘bus’ in order to try and get a replay at Anfield which of course would be a money spinner and great day out. But I would imagine Eddie will play as he always does and stick by his principles.
.
Perhaps we could try and fill up the midfield. One cannot mark Suarez and co. It is far better to try and stop them getting the ball in the first place and take them out of the game.
.
How we will get on is dependant on the team that Eddie picks and subsequent shape. I would not condone picking Harte and Hughes as I believe they have not played competitively for some time and are more than likely not match fit and would therefore leave us exposed.
.
We must remember that retaining our Championship status must be a priority over getting involved in a protracted cup run of which can cause a fixture pile-up etc.
.
Personally, the best scenario would be to play for a draw and go out gracefully at Anfield, pocket the cash and stick to our guns and retain our Championship place.
.
Enjoy your day folks.

Not my take smhinto. There is a more important to Liverpool derby game v Everton next Tuesday. I can't see Brendan Rogers fielding his big guns, at least not until the latter stages of the game.

So this represents a golden opportunity for the lads to do a spot of giant-killing, but there again, what team will Eddie put out.

Me too, I remember in a pub pre-match there were me and 5 mates having some banter with about 10 Man. U fans, who then gave us a lift to the ground in their minibus. Great game, great memories. Anyone remember being 2-0 up at Everton in the League Cup? Another great day out .

Far be it for me to defend smhinto but you will find that he doesn't attend our matches because he is a scout and therefore goes to the match which are assigned to him by his paymasters.

I don't believe he deserves jumping down his throat in this occasion.

Real experts are much less keen to offer their 'take' on things. After all how many times have you read Sir Alex Ferguson offering his 'take' on things. In my line of work those made all the noises were the least qualified to do so. Long live the freedom of speech. Up the mighty Cherries

'a real supporter' I am sorry but I cannot produce any proof either way. If indeed he is a fake he is a fake to himself by trying to deceive us. I trust the majority on here are honest and truthful in expressing their views and what they say about themselves.

I do believe that he is very selective about which posts he chooses to respond to. Whether some of the more questioning replies challenges him to the point that he has no answer or he simply choose to ignore only he knows.

Sadly these pages usually gets filled with tit for tat rather than debate aspects of the game or matters related to our squad. Maybe I was wrong in giving him the benefit of doubt.

It appears you're somewhat older than me Golfer or you have an excellent memory from a very young age. I do remember Tony Scott by name it was indeed some time ago, Ted & Phil were always the main focus in those years, I certainly recall Ted couldn't' help himself scoring that day as the result suggests.

Sadly these pages usually gets filled with tit for tat rather than debate aspects of the game or matters related to our squad. Maybe I was wrong in giving him the benefit of doubt.
I just find it unbelievable how someone who never watches a single game can have so many opinions about team selection and tactics etc. I just wish this site was left for opinions made by real supporters which we can all debate by at least knowing the players and management from watching their performances even if its not week in week out.

Real experts are much less keen to offer their 'take' on things. After all how many times have you read Sir Alex Ferguson offering his 'take' on things. In my line of work those made all the noises were the least qualified to do so. Long live the freedom of speech. Up the mighty Cherries

Here's my take on it.
It's the FA Cup ! Against the mighty Reds..........how can anyone talk of "the league is our priority, I don't really care "

Just as bad as the premiergreed plastic fans and dull managers who have no ambition to do anything in football, ever.

I cannot wait for the game, the old cup romantic that i am .....

I remember the match in '84, what a great performance against that bunch of arrogant"BigClub United " players and fans, superb.
Does anybody els remember the tannoy announceent in the firt half that day ? "Could Mr Smith (sic) please go straight to Sainsbury's in Christchurch where your wife is waiting for you !"
Quality, bloke sneaked off to the football and left his missu to do the shopping............

I am looking forward to the game, but I am more excited about sitting in the freezing cold on the following Tuesday against Huddersfield when 3 points are up for grabs, a good cup game is always good and we have waited along time for a big cup game at home and it doesn't come much bigger than Liverpool but for me the big game is on Tuesday, mind u I quite fancy a replay at Anfield as I havnt been before

Apparently Ted only scored 8, one was a back pass own goal, but they put it down to him. He beat the record of 7 goals, the goalscorer ending on the losing side 8-7, back in 1922.

Is he Nonno? do you have any proof of that !. Only, I challenged him recently on his credentials as a so called scout and why his highly valued skills are only used for much lower divisions. Now suddenly he has quoted Leicester v Borough. A troll is what he is and a complete and utter Tos*er.
You have not challenged me at all Mr Real suppoeter. I told you on the Mason thread that I cover all four professional division as well as looking at the interschools fixtures on the odd occasion.

Here ' s one for all you scouts out there , SKY reports that a host of Premier and Championship clubs @ Dean Court on Saturday to watch Eunan O ' Kane . Presumably Smhinto will be there and not at Leicester !

i hope liverpool come into the game with big heads and are over confident. We can beat them, I remember seeing non league stevenage get to penalties against top of the prem Newcastle with shearer in his prime after a 210 minute stalemate. I think We have players like cook, camp, ritchie, fraser and some others who could play in the prem' and probably one day will. I would also like to see Rantie play this game, see how he performs without pressure and apart from ritchie he has the most ability in our squad.

I have a feeling it might be time for The Cherries to cause a mighty upset again in the FA Cup !!!. I was a lad of about 9 when I watched Freddie Cox's "pippins"as they were called beat the mighty Tottenham Hotspur team in the 1950's (gate about 28,000 ?) having beaten Wolverhampton Wanderers with Billy Wright (England Captain) playing, at Wolves in the 3rd round.(Cutler on left wing famously broke their goal post !!!.
I was also at the 5th round game at DC when we lost to Man Utd's "Busby Babes" many who sadly died in the "Munich Air Crash" shortly afterwards. Crowd that day is still a club record and "We wuz robbed" that day by a wrong ref decision giving MU a penalty.
Then in the late 1960's I saw "Boscombe"(as was in those days) hold Liverpool to a draw at DC 1-1 and then went up to Anfield for the replay where were completely outplayed and lost 4-1 (if memory serves me right ?)
Never saw the Famous victory over Man Utd in 1984 apart from on TV as I was working and living in London at the time and could not get down for the game, but I still have an old tee shirt from those times which says "The day the glory fans forget" and on the back Ron Atkinson(Utd Manager at the time) went on to say "Funny thing we beat Barcelona the following week just imagine how many Bournemouth would have thumped them by ". It is quite tatty now but a treasured possession !!!.

So it it's about time we had another bit of "Glory" ourselves and "turnover" Liverpool and get another BIG club in the next round. UTC.

PS. Yes Tony Scott did play left wing in that 11 goal FA Cup win and he also crossed the ball at Aston Villa for Ted McDougall to score that fantastic horizontal diving header which SHOULD have won goal of the season (lucky to be at both those matches back then).
Will watch game on TV and will be cheering the lads on from an armchair.

Agreed,surely a footall scout would have a knowledge of football superior to most, his insight of the game is no more than anyone else on here,in fact many replies to him include the saying "you state the obvious".No doubt his reply woud include "I dumb down my posts so the brain dead empty heads on here can understand".Once again why insult people,why not explain to others where they are going wrong,maybe people will then say "oh,I hadn`t thought of that".

I think you will find that my expletives were in retaliation fo the insults aimed at me by Mr Realsupporter. Please refer to the end of the Mason thread from a couple of days ago to confirm. He was refered to as a thick idiot for his referenced to me as being a T.ss.r.
.
I notice that you have not rebuked Mr real supporter for his insults. Typical I suppose.

As a number of you appear to be in a nostalgic mood, I have vivid memories of the Liverpool game in 1968 and Keith East scoring a perfectly good goal which the referee inexplicably disallowed. If it had not been for his incompetence we would have won the game. Some things never change !! What has changed are the social attitudes and behaviors of football fans in general. In 1968, there was no segregation and we were not only packed in like sardines but surrounded with hundreds of predominently well behaved and good natured scoucers. It is now a completely different world as demonstrated by a minority of Watford supporters on Saturday but I hope the Liverpool fans who are making the long journey enjoy their day on the south coast and are magnanimous in defeat !!

Ahh!! Keith East, Now there was a striker like Fletcher that would go through "brick walls"to score goals, Not as big as Fletcher but just as tenacious,
We have suffered from some "dodgy decisions" by refs.in "Big" cup matches against teams like Man Utd & Liverpool , so let's hope we get the "rub of the green" from the officials on Saturday and get a penalty given our way against a "Big" club. However being a realist something about "pigs might fly" springs to mind. LOL !!!!. Enjoy the day. UTC.
