Big news. Wonder how damaged his reputation is after that relegation.

Nailed on he'll be the first name linked to a vacancy at a non-top four/six club either this summer or next season (whatever comes first).

Do they offer betting markets on that?  :lol:
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

Decent choice for someone trying to pretend to be ambitious. Mostly pretty football, won't be silly wages.

Going to guess he'll go to Villa next, once they inevitably sack Dean Smith.

Under any normal ownership, I'd like to see him given a chance at a big club like us.

But, of course, we aren't a big club anymore, are we?

Not sure the relegation threatened clubs will be that interested in him personally. Don't think that's his kind of job

Criticism of Howe really irks me like.

Bournemouth have spent 10 seasons in their entire history above the 3rd tier of English football - seven of them under Howe. They are a League 1/League 2 club and always have been. He took over when they were bottom of the Football League on -17 points and took them to the Premier League. There's never been a job like that done in my lifetime, it is astonishing.

Like, you might not want him in charge of Newcastle, or think he's good enough to take a bigger job, that's all fine, whatever. But to say some of the stuff I see written about him, that he's a bog average manager who's done an average job, just f*** off. This attitude that pervades English football that you're basically not worth your salary unless you can conquer the Premier League is awful.

I think Howe is a quality manager.

What ultimatley let Bournemouth down is their player recruitment.

They have spent some decent amount on players but none have really worked out. They seem to take massive risks on young players at other top clubs that might become something e.g. Jordan Ibe and Solanke. Only time it kind of paid off was with Ake. Considering the money that has been available to them, still using the likes of Gosling we got rid of eons ago is pretty crazy.

I think Howe isn't too strong i the recruitment area and so just needed a team that could get him better value, particularly from overseas.

I would have him over Bruce in a heartbeat in our current setup as he would get far more out of the players we end up getting in even as things currently are.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Completely agree. They were stitched up well by Liverpool, fleecing them for talent that simple never performed.

Howe would be perfect for us given he wouldn't have a say in transfers.. I mean he wouldn't get transfers either but could have a few loans.

Maybe he will still be available when Bruce gets sacked for us being bottom near the end of 2020?

Agreed, and Ake was a loan the first season as opposed to the others mentioned. Would be interesting to see what he can do with a team of better players than he had at disposal at b'mouth.

Somewhat excited to see what comes next for him. He's the sort of manager that, in a non-Ashley world, I'd be sceptical but yet massively on board with were we to appoint him.

I generally loathe the suggestion that clubs have ceilings or have reached their limit but I think, given that Bournemouth are such a small club, they probably did hit a ceiling. That 4-3 against Liverpool a few years ago, for instance, and going on to finish in the top half, must surely be reasonable enough a peak for any club with gates of about ~12000 and who's spent the majority of its existence in the third and fourth tiers. I mean, what sort of players or management or investment could that club reasonably expect to recruit/achieve beyond the standard they did. Howe's transfer record has been really questionable but I suppose that's the market he's had to operate in, where the likes of Solanke are the best category of striker they're likely to attract.

Be interesting to see how he does at a club with more resources and more potential. He's obviously a brilliant coach, given how he guided lower level players into the PL.
