Although the Cherries recorded an overall operating loss of £1.2million, the south coast club generated £2.3million in player sales during the year - including transfers fees received for Brett Pitman, Josh McQuiod, Jason Pearce and Marvin Bartley.

In a statement on the club's official website, chairman Eddie Mitchell said: "I'm pleased to say that we made a profit, and I'm the first chairman at this football club to be able to say that in over a decade.

"Times are hard and I don't think many other clubs in the Football League will announce profits this season.

"We sold a lot of players over the summer and that has put the club in a good position, and I hope in 12 months' time we will be in an even better position.

"I make no bones about my ambitions of getting this club into the Championship, but I also want the club to be financially secure and we've taken an important step towards making that happen."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
