I really hope the Eddie Howe rumour is bollocks.

Don't get me wrong he is an upgrade from Roy Keane but his teams tend to let in a lot of goals.

15/ 16 - 68 conceded
16/ 17 - 67 conceded
17/ 18 - 61 conceded
18/ 19 - 70 conceded
19/ 20 - 65 conceeded

His teams are in the bottom 5 for goals conceded every season. Personally speaking, I do not think he is the right man for the job and certainly won't improve our European fortunes with that kind of defence.

If the club are doing their due dilligence, surely they realise that there are concerns over Howe's defensive record in management.

I must be honest I am really disappointed with all the names that have been heavilly linked with the post. There, have been a few who I think would do well but they have not been heavilly linked as their name seems to come and go quickly.

id rather roy keane than eddie howe. one of the ed says a wile back on here howe can't set up defences.

In saying that law av stated a few times. he took a small club right up to epl and kept them they're for 5 years, that's some doing, you would expect a club that size to prob lose a few goals against the world's top strikers, but they were doing something right or outscoring teams. and selling there best players as well. i quite fancy him out of most of the names mentioned.

{Ed001's Note - they were funded by a huge input of cash from a Russian billionaire and he still couldn't get them to defend. It was nothing to do with a lack of players and everything to do with Howe's inadequacies. He can't organise a defence and (he admitted this as well) he can't spot players. His failures in the transfer market were bad enough that he actually asked for someone else to take control of recruitment.}

Well atleast his teams are consistent lol.

LAW who would u realistic have as manager if u don't want Keane or howe?

01 Apr 2021 08:03:38
Law may I ask, who would you be happy with. Brian Clough perhaps?

Howe is little more than an upgraded Warburton. One style of play and concedes lots of goals.

@Mally - I am not trying to diminish his achievments at Bournemouth as he done a great job coaching them. He managed to get them from league 2 to the Premiership and keep them there for 5 seasons.

However, I think it is right to point out his inadequecies as a coach.

Would love him to come in and run our youth development as I know he is rated a good coach. Whilst that is an option for me, I am not confident he would bring success as a manager for the main reason I highlighted.

think he had a poor spell at burnley to and went back to Bournemouth. eddie howe gives me the fear. id have roy keane over him any day.

{Ed001's Note - he did and put them in such huge debts that Dyche had to sell most of the team to keep the club from going under. Dyche also won promotion that season, something which Howe couldn't do, despite having to sell players. They did come straight back down, but he refused to spend money on players after their relegation and told the chairman to spend it on the club's infrastructure to help the club for the next 20 years or so.}

ed001 is howe someone who just likes to spend and not very good at it.

{Ed001's Note - he does like to spend, I suppose it depends on what you call very good at something. He was good enough to spend his way into the Prem but then, once people realised how he played, they were relegation battlers and lucky to survive as long as they did. I certainly wouldn't say he was good enough to win without significantly outspending the opposition. His defensive organisation is absolutely laughable.}

01 Apr 2021 10:42:18
ed001 who would you choose out of keane and howe. and reasons why.

{Ed001's Note - talk about being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea! Keane is someone who can do well initially but then his persona turns everyone against him and it all goes to pot. I have never heard anything good about his coaching either, so it would have to be Howe, because at least you could take recruitment out of his hands and provide him help on defensive coaching.}

01 Apr 2021 11:07:52
I would love us to go for Martinez from Granada, de Zebri from Sassuola or Jindřich Trpišovský from Slavia Prague.

Would also take Wilder or Sean Dyche if we were staying locally.

There are others that I would take but they are less realistic targets.

01 Apr 2021 11:18:29
so ed if you DD your giving the gig to howe if it was between them

i think keane just needs a good coaching team with him and he will do well mate. i was not that keen on howe then you says a few things about him to has put me right off him.

{Ed001's Note - if it was between them, yes but it is only fine margins and I would want to select the coaching team with either and restrict their power to a head coach role only.}
