This week we've followed the sunshine to the

:00:39.:00:42.

an area quietly emerging as a hotbed of Premier League football.

:00:43.:00:46.

Tonight, we delve inside three of the region's clubs

:00:47.:00:48.

Brighton have travelled from the brink to the big time

:00:49.:00:55.

We join next season's Premier League new boys as they prepare

:00:56.:00:59.

for their first season in the top-flight

:01:00.:01:01.

With Bournemouth securing their Premier League

:01:02.:01:03.

we talk to their king of the assist, Charlie Daniels,

:01:04.:01:07.

about his and the club's journey from the lower leagues.

:01:08.:01:09.

And we've gathered together three Southampton legends

:01:10.:01:11.

But first, we take a look back at what proved to be a pivotal

:01:12.:01:17.

COMMENTATOR: Back in... Chelsea cannot win the title this weekend

:01:18.:01:34.

but tonight, Tottenham have surely lost it.

:01:35.:01:39.

COMMENTATOR: What a strike from the Manchester City skipper! Space here

:01:40.:01:51.

for Raheem Sterling... Kevin De Bruyne with it, looking for a touch,

:01:52.:01:55.

and there is the touch, for Nicolas Otamendi. Crystal Palace cannot

:01:56.:01:57.

relax just yet. COMMENTATOR: In from Larsson,

:01:58.:02:14.

Jermain Defoe is there and he has bundled it in! That might be the

:02:15.:02:18.

goal that ultimately takes Hull down with Sunderland.

:02:19.:02:21.

COMMENTATOR: Knocked up towards Fernando Llorente! That is huge for

:02:22.:02:32.

Swansea, their fate is their own to decide, two to play, if they win

:02:33.:02:39.

them both, they stay up act or real -- if they win them both, they stay

:02:40.:02:41.

up! COMMENTATOR: Claiming handball, big

:02:42.:02:50.

call, lucky break for Liverpool... But it is handball. Can James Milner

:02:51.:02:56.

fire Liverpool in front, he cannot! It is saved!

:02:57.:03:01.

COMMENTATOR: Granit Xhaka will have a go from there... Danny Welbeck,

:03:02.:03:12.

2-0! The race for the Champions League place again for Arsene

:03:13.:03:13.

Wenger. COMMENTATOR: Fabregas... Did not get

:03:14.:03:30.

there, Diego Costa did, and the top scorer has just calmed the nerves

:03:31.:03:36.

inside Stamford Bridge. Fabregas, Nemanja Matic! Chelsea are one win

:03:37.:03:45.

away from the title. Complete contrast in a motion for

:03:46.:03:47.

Middlesbrough, they are relegated from the Premier League for the

:03:48.:03:48.

fourth time. -- emotion. So Chelsea just need a win away

:03:49.:04:05.

against West Bromwich Albion this Friday night to secure

:04:06.:04:07.

the Premier League title. Can Antonio Conte lift a trophy

:04:08.:04:11.

in his first season in England or can serial fun-spoiler Tony Pulis

:04:12.:04:13.

ruin the party and leave the champagne on ice

:04:14.:04:16.

for another weekend? Joining Chelsea in the Premier

:04:17.:04:18.

League next season will be who finished second

:04:19.:04:24.

in the Championship after narrowly They haven't played in the top

:04:25.:04:27.

division of English the year they lost in the FA

:04:28.:04:30.

Cup Final and were relegated, We are a club that has been knocking

:04:31.:04:54.

on the door of the Premier League for the last five seasons. It is an

:04:55.:04:58.

exciting time for the club, we are looking forward to testing ourselves

:04:59.:05:02.

in the Premier League. The connection with the supporters and

:05:03.:05:05.

the wider community has always been very strong here at macro

:05:06.:05:10.

Lucky hat, each time I wear it, we score. Just amazing, after

:05:11.:05:40.

everything that has happened. Epic. Amazing. We have spent 34 years

:05:41.:05:44.

waiting. It is unbelievable. CHEERING

:05:45.:05:51.

Everybody has always looked at Brighton as a nightclub, people have

:05:52.:05:57.

found out things about Brighton that perhaps in the history of the club

:05:58.:06:01.

they did not know, and that is a good thing.

:06:02.:06:13.

No club ever before has had the imagination to use the modern travel

:06:14.:06:23.

being employed by Brighton today. Welcome to Seagull One, the same

:06:24.:06:28.

helicopter used for the visit of the Pope, any significance? Well, if it

:06:29.:06:34.

is good enough for the Pope, it is good enough for Joe Melia! The FA

:06:35.:06:43.

Cup final, 1983, against Manchester United, first game was amazing, the

:06:44.:06:48.

atmosphere, the crowd, the number of brighten supporters. -- Brighton.

:06:49.:06:56.

COMMENTATOR: Howlett... Smith! It is there! 14 minutes! Stapleton!

:06:57.:07:03.

Manchester United equalised. Wilkins... That's absolutely

:07:04.:07:06.

magnificent! The corner, he has pulled it back to

:07:07.:07:13.

Grealish, little touch for Stevens! 2-2! Gary Stevens equalises! Three

:07:14.:07:17.

minutes remaining. Ball played forward to Robinson,

:07:18.:07:28.

going forward strong... He's inside his own penalty area... Smith...

:07:29.:07:34.

Must score, has not scored, and Bailey has saved it. That was the

:07:35.:07:38.

moment, that was the moment, first time I have been to a cup final, the

:07:39.:07:42.

only time I have been to a cup final! Apart from the replay.

:07:43.:07:49.

COMMENTATOR: Arnold Muren makes it 4-0. -- Arnold Muhren.

:07:50.:07:59.

Very recently we have the 20th anniversary of the last ever game at

:08:00.:08:04.

the Goldstone ground, when Brighton were fighting for their football

:08:05.:08:08.

league lives, the game ended with them winning but the fans tearing up

:08:09.:08:13.

the ground. One week later, they went to Hereford for a relegation

:08:14.:08:17.

decider, had they lost that game, and they were losing, at one stage,

:08:18.:08:22.

they would have been out of the Football League. So, two decades on,

:08:23.:08:26.

to be in the position where we are now is pretty extraordinary. I think

:08:27.:08:30.

it was one of the first times that a club's ownership had almost sold the

:08:31.:08:33.

club from under their own feet behind the backs of the supporters,

:08:34.:08:37.

that sense of betrayal was deeply felt. Not just by the fans, but by

:08:38.:08:42.

the wider football community, because if it could happen to a club

:08:43.:08:46.

like Brighton it could happen to anybody. Incredibly, four motorways

:08:47.:08:54.

to get to a home game! One hour and 20 there, one hour and 20 back, 2000

:08:55.:09:00.

die-hards to watch games at gelling, for Dick Knight got them back to the

:09:01.:09:03.

city, this was their home ground, and then they went to the with Dean

:09:04.:09:08.

Stadium. Not ideal, but it was definitely arrows. I think they sat

:09:09.:09:16.

50 yards away from the pitch. I thought, somebody plays football

:09:17.:09:20.

there, that is where my school sports day is, it was nothing... Now

:09:21.:09:24.

we are here, it is unbelievable. -- Withdean Stadium. No viable eternity

:09:25.:09:29.

to farming exists... I had it painted blue, quite a few

:09:30.:09:58.

years ago now. You have got to back them, you have got to support your

:09:59.:10:02.

local team! Had some great times. I think they've done so well, to get

:10:03.:10:08.

where they are now. The players we have got, they all fitted in. And

:10:09.:10:14.

they are a great team, they really are, it is like a family there,

:10:15.:10:15.

actually. This club has been through a

:10:16.:10:33.

struggle, when you go through a struggle you come through it or you

:10:34.:10:37.

do not. We do not have aspirations to go into the Premier League and

:10:38.:10:40.

take it by storm, we are humble, we have work to do in the summer to

:10:41.:10:45.

improve the facilities, but this training ground is world-class,

:10:46.:10:48.

probable one of the best 34 in the country, those key pieces are in

:10:49.:10:52.

place, we have a very good squad and a very good manager. -- probably one

:10:53.:10:58.

of the best three or four in the country. Everybody's excited to get

:10:59.:10:59.

there and start the work. We will need to strengthen because

:11:00.:11:18.

we are going into the toughest league to play in, but I don't see

:11:19.:11:23.

wholesale changes, we mustn't take away a lot of what we have had, the

:11:24.:11:27.

spirit, the togetherness this season, similar to what we have done

:11:28.:11:31.

in the last few windows. A little bit of quality is needed. The gaffer

:11:32.:11:36.

plays a massive part, never to hire, never too low, that goes for

:11:37.:11:39.

everybody around him and it has worked wonders for us. Tony is a

:11:40.:11:45.

lifelong brighten phone, devoted a vast part of his fortune getting the

:11:46.:11:50.

club ready to be -- ready for the Premier League, he sets the tone, he

:11:51.:11:55.

has ideas about how things should be done and that is reflected through

:11:56.:11:58.

the club. -- never too high, never too low.

:11:59.:12:00.

It is about staying up, if you are able to come away from the first

:12:01.:12:05.

Premier League season and be happy overall, that will be enough. Losing

:12:06.:12:09.

the Goldstone ground, going to gelling, the Withdean Stadium, and

:12:10.:12:16.

coming here, it is just perfect. Go back to the dark days of the

:12:17.:12:20.

Withdean, soaking wet every game that you went to, to come here on

:12:21.:12:25.

this stadium is unbelievable. We model ourselves on Southampton or

:12:26.:12:28.

Stoke City, if we do that, we will be fine. I am so excited, I cannot

:12:29.:12:32.

wait, I am wearing the hat everyday! Seventy six miles as the crow flies

:12:33.:12:39.

along the South Coast from Brighton is AFC Bournemouth,

:12:40.:12:42.

a club who've trodden an equally Eddie Howe's side finished 16th

:12:43.:12:45.

in their inaugural season in the Premier League and look set

:12:46.:12:48.

to improve on that this time around. One of the men who's been with them

:12:49.:12:51.

throughout their extraordinary journey is Charlie Daniels and he's

:12:52.:12:54.

been talking to Caroline De Moreas. Charlie says, always tell your

:12:55.:13:03.

mother when you are going somewhere... You recently major 200

:13:04.:13:09.

appearance for Bournemouth, how did that feel? It was amazing, yeah,

:13:10.:13:13.

didn't actually realise until one week before, when somebody told me.

:13:14.:13:19.

I feel really honoured to have made 200 appearances for Bournemouth, and

:13:20.:13:24.

for us to be in the Premier League, very special. You started your

:13:25.:13:30.

career at Tottenham Academy, was that a great basis for you, because

:13:31.:13:36.

there was incredible talent, yourself, Harry Kane, David Beckham,

:13:37.:13:39.

but before then, you were with Ridgeway Rovers? Semi-players have

:13:40.:13:46.

played there and gone on to be professionals. I don't know what it

:13:47.:13:50.

is, it is around that area, it is very tough, if you want to become a

:13:51.:13:55.

professional, you have to work hard, I am really grateful I have done.

:13:56.:14:00.

COMMENTATOR: Daniels still going, it is four!

:14:01.:14:06.

The core of the squad have been together since League 1, do you

:14:07.:14:18.

think this side is an example of perseverance within the game? I do,

:14:19.:14:24.

and I think it is a credit to the football club as well, for sticking

:14:25.:14:27.

by us, they could have just let us go, you know, could have said,

:14:28.:14:32.

thanks very much, maybe bigger names, we have all come up together,

:14:33.:14:37.

as a whole club, and from that side, it has been fantastic. How important

:14:38.:14:42.

have the goals of Josh King been to the club? Incredibly, he has scored

:14:43.:14:48.

a hell of a lot of goals, he has been settled down, off the pitch, he

:14:49.:14:51.

has a young son and that has helped him. It changes you as a person. His

:14:52.:14:58.

workrate has been unbelievable. He is a very important part of this

:14:59.:15:03.

team. The manager is part of that, what is it like working under Eddie

:15:04.:15:06.

Howe? He has probably been the biggest influence on my career. When

:15:07.:15:11.

we first heard that he was coming in, a couple of the lads that played

:15:12.:15:14.

under him before, they said, he trains you really hard... We are

:15:15.:15:19.

going to improve. We might actually get promoted. I think we was in the

:15:20.:15:24.

relegation zone at that time, so a lot of us thought... It is not going

:15:25.:15:30.

to happen... As soon as he stepped in the door, first training session,

:15:31.:15:34.

high-intensity, very forward attacking thinking and if we did not

:15:35.:15:38.

do that, then we were not playing, as simple as that. Definitely helped

:15:39.:15:44.

me progress as a player, on and off the pitch as well. He comes across

:15:45.:15:45.

as personable. He has said he can lose his cool?

:15:46.:15:57.

Well, that is not pleasant for anyone. He does that for the right

:15:58.:16:02.

reasons, not very often but you will know about it. Bournemouth on 42

:16:03.:16:09.

points and pushing for that top ten finish, how does this season fit

:16:10.:16:14.

into the long-term progression? We have said ever since the gaffer has

:16:15.:16:17.

been here, if we keep improving every year, which we have done, but

:16:18.:16:24.

will improve the club and if we keep doing that hand in hand, there are

:16:25.:16:28.

no limits. Looking to next year, if we can keep the same high levels and

:16:29.:16:34.

improve the squad, hopefully it can continue for a fee more years.

:16:35.:16:37.

Financial stability, a thriving academy and bold

:16:38.:16:39.

managerial appointments have seen Southampton held up as the model

:16:40.:16:41.

But Claude Puel's side have failed to build on last season's sixth

:16:42.:16:45.

place finish under Ronald Koeman and another exodus of

:16:46.:16:47.

We've gathered together three Saints legends to run the rule

:16:48.:16:51.

My name is Jason Dodd, I was lucky enough to play for Southampton 483

:16:52.:17:14.

times. I am Mark Gatiss, I played for five years and was in the 1984

:17:15.:17:18.

squad that finished second in the league. I am Francis Bonaly, I

:17:19.:17:21.

scored one amazing goal! -- Benali. Where do we rank first season of

:17:22.:17:43.

Claude Puel in charge? It is the expectation, get to the Cup Final

:17:44.:17:47.

and finish in eighth place on the table, if that is not a success,

:17:48.:17:52.

that tells you how far the club has come. Mixed feelings, I look at

:17:53.:17:58.

Claude, he has taken over the side, doing quite well in the league but

:17:59.:18:04.

what hurts me is the fact that we are still a feeder club and that is

:18:05.:18:08.

a massive problem. Throughout the years, we have lost huge amounts of

:18:09.:18:14.

players or players have moved on, what sort of side could we have

:18:15.:18:20.

built that we kept them? Amazing, we would be winning the league for many

:18:21.:18:24.

years! We must have so much money in our bank accounts! The players we

:18:25.:18:29.

have sold, and we have not been paying a lot to get players. They

:18:30.:18:34.

want to play in the Champions League so it is not a money issue because

:18:35.:18:39.

they are more than well looked after but they want to be tested and to

:18:40.:18:45.

me, that is hunger for the lads, you cannot want them to go off to play

:18:46.:18:50.

for these big cups because they want to be challenged. From Matt Le

:18:51.:18:55.

Tissier, to Gareth Bale and bridge, the Saints Academy must be the envy

:18:56.:19:01.

of the Premier League. That scouting network was there from years ago and

:19:02.:19:05.

it has gone from strength to strength, we touched on how keeping

:19:06.:19:09.

the players can be a problem but they have churned out that conveyor

:19:10.:19:15.

belt of players... Gareth Bale! If I was a player or a parent, I would

:19:16.:19:20.

want my boy or I would want to be at Southampton as opposed to Chelsea

:19:21.:19:25.

because it is a pathway to the first team. When you look at the other

:19:26.:19:30.

teams, at Arsenal, you would have to be exceptional to get near the first

:19:31.:19:35.

team, that is not say they are not exceptional at Southampton but just

:19:36.:19:40.

means that you have a chance. When will the new crop of fans get their

:19:41.:19:47.

1976? We came so close in 2003, we could not get that extra step to

:19:48.:19:53.

lift the trophy and try to replicate in 1876. That is the next step, but

:19:54.:19:57.

some silverware on the mantelpiece. Be honest, can we do what Lester

:19:58.:20:04.

did? I'm not sure. We will not see that again. Why don't we focus on

:20:05.:20:09.

that? On that silverware to get in there? What a great day, not just

:20:10.:20:17.

for those supporters but everyone, the players and management,

:20:18.:20:21.

everyone. Just brilliant. If I could have a Cup Final every year I would

:20:22.:20:25.

be a happy man. What will make a successful season next year? Keeping

:20:26.:20:31.

hold of the best players and that includes Bertrand, in the top half,

:20:32.:20:38.

with some silverware and we will be happy. Somebody without any

:20:39.:20:45.

management upheaval or players leaving. But we need to invest, the

:20:46.:20:50.

club has got some money so which direction to be want to go? Can we

:20:51.:20:56.

win something? That is a fantastic place to be. Talk to me about South

:20:57.:21:04.

Coast football. It has been coming up for a long time, Brighton first

:21:05.:21:08.

and foremost. I fancy them to stay up. Good backers and good management

:21:09.:21:15.

and I think they will do well. For the south coast to have three sides

:21:16.:21:19.

in the Premier League is great for this region. It builds that rivalry

:21:20.:21:23.

more as well. I think there will be some great games and I am looking

:21:24.:21:27.

forward to all of the side is doing well. None more so than Southampton,

:21:28.:21:31.

we are a little bit biased! Good luck to all South Coast

:21:32.:21:34.

clubs for the rest of And if you think it's tense

:21:35.:21:37.

in the Premier League, the stakes are just as high

:21:38.:21:40.

in the fantasy world. Nathan Caton tells us what it takes

:21:41.:21:43.

to become a Fantasy Football Fergie. Do I play Fantasy Football? Of

:21:44.:22:01.

course! I never used to but I thought of Andre Villas-Boas can

:22:02.:22:05.

manage in real life, I must be able to do that in fantasy! Fantasy

:22:06.:22:09.

Football has to be one of the most frustrating things I have endured

:22:10.:22:14.

and I am an England fan! We spend the entire summer baking and the

:22:15.:22:19.

perfect job, spending ?100 million, I once spent ?25 in costs go for

:22:20.:22:25.

some condom is because I thought it was a bargain! The price for some

:22:26.:22:32.

players is ridiculous. ?11 million for Sanchez. Ten for Eden Hazard?

:22:33.:22:40.

But Claudio Bravo? You would be lucky to get five! You plan and plan

:22:41.:22:48.

the team and the next thing, the summer is gone and you are missing

:22:49.:22:54.

important dates in your life. Sorry, mum, I will make up your birthday

:22:55.:22:59.

next year! The season rolls around and you have the perfect squad. I

:23:00.:23:05.

say perfect, more like the perfect 11. Working out some things, talking

:23:06.:23:13.

to the players and agents. Stephen Ward, golden. Why would you include

:23:14.:23:21.

Stephen Ward? After all much graft, the perfect 11, Pogba, Ibrahimovic,

:23:22.:23:28.

should win the league easily, right? Then comes the most difficult and

:23:29.:23:33.

most important bit- naming the team. Not a normal name, new owners to? It

:23:34.:23:42.

must be a football pun, men behaving Chudleigh. You have the squad,

:23:43.:23:53.

happy? A thing so until the end of week one and you panic and you

:23:54.:23:59.

attempted to play the wild card. They should be a transfer deadline

:24:00.:24:03.

in Fantasy Football, it might look something like this. I am outside

:24:04.:24:08.

Nathan Caton's bother's us, we believe he is inside working on a

:24:09.:24:13.

free transfer to swap the Walton with Michael Cain and he said,

:24:14.:24:20.

Swansea keep conceding, man, costing me points. What a head of transfers

:24:21.:24:27.

is if you take the player out of the team you know they will start

:24:28.:24:30.

performing. I learnt this the hard way, after his first season at

:24:31.:24:37.

Spurs, I had Harry Kane then he didn't score the first four against

:24:38.:24:41.

the next season and I took him out! Harry Kane! The worst is when you

:24:42.:24:45.

support teams and players you normally cannot stand. Pass! Get in!

:24:46.:24:57.

Diego Costa! Getting, my captain! Gosh! I feel so dirty! Or that

:24:58.:25:06.

frustration and Agony and from what? I had a mate got into the top 15 in

:25:07.:25:11.
