We were sinking and falling by the wayside, Nearly thinking of crawling and hiding away, But the phoenix can't rise, When the fire's not kept alive, Back in August the wobbles threw us all off-track, And by September it felt like there was no way back, But when October rolled round, Two men spurred a turning tide, CHORUS So we'll sing it loud, So they'll see us proud, Throw our arms in the air at the Goldsands, The future starts now, And we'll aim for the skies, In the league where dreams are realised, Here comes Eddie's Army's shot, At the Championship, Before we knew it we were cruising a road of draws and wins, But for Elphick and friends that's where the story begins, 'Cos after Preston and Sheffield, Horizons didn't look so clear, The new year scared us all with injuries, But that was nothing compared to the results we'd see, With Marc Pugh surging down the wing, And Allsop stopping everything; Francis keeping strikes at bay, And Eunan's FA Cup display; Pitman racking up the scores, And Ritchie winning league awards, And Cook's debut header on promotion day, CHORUS So we'll sing it loud, So they'll see us proud, Throw our arms in the air at the Goldsands, The future starts now, And we'll aim for the skies, In the league where dreams are realised, Here comes Eddie's Army's shot, At the Championship, And we'll keep the red flag flying high indefinitely, From QPR to Millwall, Ipswich, Burnley and Leeds, And despite Doncaster stealing titles in added time, Here's a brand new season, And it's our moment to shine, So we'll sing it loud, So they'll see us proud, CHORUS So we'll sing it loud, So they'll see us proud, Throw our arms in the air at the Goldsands, The future starts now, And we'll aim for the skies, In the league where dreams are realised, Here comes Eddie's Army's shot, We've all yearned for this non-stop, So let's give everything we've got, In the Championship.

about

The first chapter of #AFCBAnthem is brought to a close with this compilation of musical homages to the meteoric rise of the mighty AFC Bournemouth!

From 2013's Championship Promotion anthem "Eddie's Army" to the rewrite for the Premier League two years later, via terrace classic such as "Eddie Had A Dream", Chants Encounter rounds off 8 years of odes and tributes to the chants and songs that have been bellowed from the stands game after game.

The final track, "Ode To Dean Court 2021: Back To The Stands", honours those players who saw through the 2020/21 season in the hollow silence of empty stadiums, as well as the club legends who sadly departed during the pandemic's "Project Restart" without the farewell from fans that they truly deserved.

Here's hoping that 2021/22 sees us all return home where we belong: Back To The Stands!
