Ten years ago, this weekend, Bournemouth started its season in League Two with less than 17 points after entering the administration. A few months later, Eddie Howe arrived.

The rest, as they say, is history. Howe's team survived by going down to the League and went up to the Premier League, starting their last campaign with this victory over Cardiff City.

This should have been more comfortable than it was. Ryan Fraser pocket rocket gave Bournemouth an early lead, but Callum Wilson's poor penalty caused a tense finish.

Later, Wilson issued that fault by scoring in stoppage time, sending Neil Warnock's Cardiff to Wales with nothing to show for the afternoon's work.

This was Cardiff's first test of the Premier League in four years and they were welcomed again by tackles at the Vitality Stadium, prompting several Warnock protests.

They will have to catch up sooner rather than later. Cardiff did not spend like Wolves and Fulham this summer and this could be a long and long season.

As for Bournemouth, this was a perfect start. The new boy, David Brooks, was making his debut in the Premier League, although he had no idea what it would be like when he showed up at lunchtime.

The word was that he entered the locker room and asked: "Why is my shirt hanging?" The summer signing of £ 11.5m started and Welsh boss Ryan Giggs was here to see how he did it.

Brooks was very involved all the time and also Wilson.

In the 23rd minute, Wilson made his way down the right side before cutting the ball, finding Fraser alone from eight yards. With all the arc open, the 5-foot-4-inch side hit it with a 1-0, while Cardiff's defenses wondered who should have scored it.

Later, Fraser was unhappy when a missile was thrown from the opposite end in his direction, an incident that did not escape the attention of the officers.

Ten minutes after opening the scoring, Bournemouth should have been on track to a comfortable win with a 2-0 lead.

They won a penalty when Wilson went down to the floor after a tangle of legs with Bruno Ecuele Manga. It was a little soft for Warnock, but maybe justice was done moments later.

Wilson took it himself, but Neil Etheridge, in his debut in the Premier League, came down to send him from the right position. He offered Cardiff a wake-up call.

Still, the heavy challenges came, with Junior Hoilett at the receiving end of a Bruce Daniels entry. Again, Warnock was not happy.

As the game approached the last 25 minutes, Cardiff threw the kitchen sink in Bournemouth.

Asmir Begovic produced a point-blank save to deny Sean Morrison his touchdown a yard from the line, before crossing cross after cross in the wet weather.

When the fourth official announced five minutes of stoppage time, Simon Francis charged into the area and crossed to Wilson, who put the ball in the bottom corner.

A perfect start for Bournemouth, and a lot for Cardiff to work with.
