Former Bournemouth boss Harry Redknapp believes his old side can win promotion to the Championship this season.
The Cherries have invested heavily on and off the pitch during the summer and Redknapp has been impressed.
He told BBC Radio Solent: "They've got a good chance. This could be their year to win promotion. It would be great if they could.
"Paul Groves will do well. He's a smashing lad and will be a great manager. The club are in good hands."
