AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter believes that some former Cherries players might look at what's happening at Dean Court and wish they hadn't left.
Since Arter joined the Cherries in June 2010, the now 24 year old has seen many changes at the club.
Arter has worked under Eddie Howe, Lee Bradbury, Paul Groves and now under Eddie Howe again for a second spell as manager.
Arter joined before Russian businessman Maxim Demin first purchased 50% of the club from former directors Jeff Mostyn and Steve Sly and eventually going on to purchase the other 50% from former chairman Eddie Mitchell.
During those three and a half years the club has seen many players come and go, while the infrastructure of the club has gone through dramatic changes.
The setup at Dean Court is no longer built around selling players for a profit, it's about establishing itself in the Championship and building for the future.
Arter told afcb.co.uk...
"When you look at some of the players that were here when I joined and then moved on, they probably wish they had stayed for a little bit longer, When I signed it was all about playing well and trying to get a move. The club tried to give you that focus because they needed the money, which they made by making players better and selling them on.
"But things are different now. Everyone`s aim is to do well to stay in the team because they all want to be part of what is happening here.
"Things have changed over the last few years with the investment that has come in and the manager coming back.
"We haven`t looked back since and there`s a really good feeling around the place."
