IT has already been an extraordinary season for AFC Bournemouth.

It started with the appearance of Real Madrid at Goldsands Stadium.

Since then, the Cherries have put up a more than creditable performance in the highly competitive Championship which boasts a whole host of ‘big’ clubs, some battling for promotion, others fighting relegation.

Now another memorable occasion looms with the FA Cup clash against Liverpool a week on Saturday.

Win, lose or draw (and with Suarez or without), it is certain to be another great day for club and town.
