The dressing room celebrations from the 2009 survival season

afcbTV's most popular ever video, Minus 17, is free and available to watch on the club's YouTube channel.

The acclaimed documentary, which first aired back in April, tells the story of AFC Bournemouth's financial woes and the miracle season that unfolded in 2008/09.

Deducted 17 points on the eve of the season and heading out of The Football League due to crippling debts, the Cherries, who were on their third manager of the season, famously survived thanks to a monumental effort from the players and staff.

Eddie Howe and his playing squad from that season help tell the story which gave the club the foundation it has in the Premier League today.

Minus 17 is on both afcbTV and YouTube for the world to see the historic story of the beginning of Howe's managerial career in one of football's all-time greatest achievements.
