AFC BOURNEMOUTH HEAD with HAIR Represents Legendary Striker DICKIE DOWSETT
AFC Bournemouth has a logo that features a similar-looking head. This isn’t because of Haaland but rather because of Dickie Dowsett, another striker.
Dickie Dowsett, a legendary player of AFC Bournemouth, is featured in the club badge. Dowsett was a prolific goalscorer who played for Bournemouth from 1957 to 1962. He retired in 1968 and became the club’s Commercial Manager.
Dowsett was a key player in Bournemouth’s brand revamp and was responsible for designing the club’s badge. It has been almost unchanged since the club’s inception. Dowsett’s image was used to design the badge. It has undergone many changes over the years including adding the club’s nickname, The Cherries. The club also underwent a total reinvention that included the red and black kit inspired by AC Milan.
Haaland’s freed-up hairdo is uncanny in its resemblance with Bournemouth’s logo. Dowsett’s hair has only slight similarities.
It is unlikely that the AFC Bournemouth logo will change people’s opinions. AFC Bournemouth’s logo is being criticized by many.
