The lower end of England's top-tier table cannot be tighter, and its wins like this that keeps a club safe from the drop: AFC Bournemouth blanked Swansea City, 2-0,

Yeah, we know. AFC Who?

The Cherries date back to 1890; they simply haven't had much big-time cheer cheer about on a national level. But the rest of England loves it there.

The Daily Player has a few other tidbits about the town, where good times abound.

OK, it may not be a travelog site, but when an area's that cool, you've gotta take notice.

Kinda like the stuff we feature at Fanorama, Take this Chelsea FC key ring, for instance:

Chelsea FC key ring

This and other big clubs' key rings can be had for a mere $16.45, which is truly top-tier value.

Who knows? If the Cherries survive relegation, maybe they'll go on to bigger things and get their own key ring posted here.

Then again, maybe not.
