Highlights from the 2018-19 season
The team’s emphatic 5-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in April 2019 had the fans in splits. The team got knocked out in the third round of the FA Cup and reached the quarter finals of the EFL Cup. The club had its moments, but they were few and far between this season. All in all, it was a season of countless missed opportunities for the Cherries. They played well, but couldn’t manage to win matches consistently.
The star performers
Callum Wilson and Joshua King did the bulk of the scoring for the Cherries. The Jamaican-English striker made his presence felt in the 2018-19 season of the Premier League. The 27-year-old netted 15 goals during the season. His ability to ravage the opposition’s defensive lines is believed to be his biggest strength. Looking at his on-field exploits, West Ham are looking to sign Wilson for the upcoming season.
Joshua King was another star performer for the club during the previous season. He complemented Wilson and found the nets during crucial moments in the tournament. It is important for the club to retain both these players. With Wilson and King taking care of the forward lines, the club can concentrate on beefing up its defensive lines.
