AFC Bournemouth have managed to enjoy a massive period of progression as a football club during the 2000s with them going from a position where they nearly went out of the football league all the way to the Premier League.
The Cherries have had dark moments since the 2000s, especially during the 2008/09 campaign where they had been deducted 17 points but still managed to survive in League Two thanks to Eddie Howe. He then led the club on a charge through the divisions winning promotion with them three times during his two separate spells and taking them to the Premier League.
