‘Well here’s why I’m delighted with Eddie Howe’

3 weeks ago

A long time ago, in an era I’d rather forget, I wrote an article about why I didn’t want Steve Bruce as our manager.

Well here’s why I’m delighted with Eddie Howe.

First of all, we are currently in a relegation battle and we need someone who can get us out of that. Eddie Howe has experience of battling to get points and keep his team up. He speaks English, which I think is crucial when the players need clear instructions.

I think it’s a lot different when you are top of the league and have world class players but we don’t and we need a coach who can instruct the players exactly what they have to do.

I want a coach who understands the body language, the colloquialisms and all of the things that make up our players. I very much doubt a foreign coach would be able to do this, although Rafa did a very good job.

I’d like us to have a young manager who has his best years ahead of him and the excitement of not knowing how good he can become.

I’m really impressed with what I’ve read about Eddie Howe and the way he studies the game and tries to learn all around Europe from different teams and managers.

He’s an excellent coach and improves players. He understands the game and has ideas about tactics and how to win games.

I think he’s a perfect fit for us and I can’t wait to watch his team play.

Good luck Eddie!
