Ake in classic shirt for United

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

For Saturday's MATCHDAY, Nathan Ake is wearing the shirt made famous in January 1984 when AFC Bournemouth beat Manchester United.

The defender donned the storied Cherries heirloom ahead of the latest match with the Red Devils, and inside also models an iconic Dutch international jersey.

He also talks to MATCHDAY about coming through the international ranks in his homeland and his latest language quest: learning Spanish.

Running with George Best

The United legend and Ballon d'Or winner played his final five Football League matches in AFC Bournemouth colours, and MATCHDAY spoke with Nigel Spackman, who shared the field with Best in all five of them, about playing alongside him - and training with Miss World in attendance.

Past and future

The programme's well-regarded history section this week looks at some of the highs and lows Mel Machin faced during the second half of his time managing the club, while the stats and wearers of the squad numbers 13 and 14 are intriguingly profiled.

With tomorrow's match being the tipping point where the Cherries and United will have played more times in the Premier League than before the top-flight era, the first eight encounters from 1949 to 1989 are also profiled.

However, the future of the club also takes centre stage over six pages, youth team midfielder Luke Gray giving an honest match report of his performance in last weekend's Swindon Town win, while Keelan O'Connell talks through his rehab from injury as he approaches his long-awaited return to action.

Over a century of pages...

The most comprehensive programme in the Premier League, Saturday's edition includes a pull-out poster of Ake and is available ahead of kick-off for the normal price of £3.50. 

You can also buy editions online here or download a digital version (here for iOS and here for Android) which is also now compatible with screen readers.
