Cherries: Daniels can join club's greats says Howe

First published in Sport Bournemouth Echo: Photograph of the Author by

MANAGER Eddie Howe is tipping Charlie Daniels to join Cherries’ list of illustrious left-backs and insists there is more to come from the stylish defender.

Daniels is approaching his first anniversary with Cherries after signing, initially on loan, in a £175,000 move from League One rivals League Orient.

The 26-year-old has played a key role in the club’s revival under Howe and starred during the 1-0 victory over Doncaster six days ago, Cherries’ fourth win in succession.

Daniels, who progressed through the ranks at Tottenham, will be hoping to help Cherries maintain their impressive form when they host Oldham Athletic tomorrow (3pm).

Howe told the Daily Echo: “I was aware of Charlie when he was at Leyton Orient. We played them a few times and he always impressed us. He was a very attacking left-back who always looked to get forward.

“I watched him a few times in his younger days at Tottenham when he was a left-winger and he has adapted well. He still has an attacking intent to his game but his defending has been good as well.

“Charlie has certainly got a lot going for him and I have been impressed with him so far in the games since we have been here. He has a good understanding with Marc Pugh and they have worked very well together. Hopefully, there will be more to come from Charlie as the season progresses.”

Daniels, who made his Cherries debut in a 0-0 draw with the Latics at Dean Court last season, is the latest in a long line of cultured left-backs to have played for the Dorset club.

Howe added: “We have been very fortunate down the years to have had some excellent players in that position and Charlie is certainly heading in the right direction to join them.

“Paul Morrell was the first one I used to watch and he was outstanding. He was probably slightly different to the more recent ones but was always solid and reliable and made numerous appearances.

“In my time as a player, Jamie Vincent was probably the stand-out performer. He had a brilliant left foot and Mel Machin would always encourage him to get forward. He was a very modern full-back and probably ahead of his time.

“Latterly, both Warren Cummings and Rhoys Wiggins have kept up the tradition and the players all represented the club really well.”

Daniels was converted to left-back by former Spurs boss Martin Jol, a practice Howe says is becoming more prevalent at Premier League clubs.

“It happens a lot with young players,” said Howe. “You see it happen with really talented lads who are very good at going forward and it is probably something that will continue to develop.

“In my opinion, it can perhaps lead to a lot of modern day defenders not being very good defensively in their own half. But the role of the full-back has certainly changed in the past 10 to 15 years.

“There is a huge demand for them to get forward and it is almost one of the first requirements. I am still of the belief that you should be able to defend first and anything else is a bonus. It will be interesting to see how things develop.”

Chris sulley was a stylish left back too in the 80s. I liked phil ferns for the brief spell he was with us. Think some of Daniels performances have been quite poor but like many players is getting better, back to the level when he first joined

I used to play cricket against Dave Stocks back in the 80's when he was skipper of Moordown CC! He was a very good bat and a steady left arm bowler. I think Steve Gritt played for them at one point too.
Phil Ferns was our left back when I first started watching AFCB in the late 70's early 80's. He was class and went on to be a policeman locally I believe. Also Chris Sulley was an excellent left back and a mainstay of the 1981-82 promotion season. The defence was key that year with less than 30 conceded all season I believe!

I know it was a long time ago but pleased Devon Fan remembers Billy Coxon. Even though Charle Daniels has a brilliant left foot from free kicks etc. Billy Coxon managed to hit the ball so fast and hard it stayed about 2 inches above the ground till in the net. Yes I remember it, brilliant.

Don't forget Les Parodi in the early 80s. Very stylish left back. I remember him clutching the post and throwing up during one game on new years day!
I too used to play cricket against Dave Stocks at Moordown....they had a really good side and great fun to play against....a great bunch of lads.

I must have started watching around the same time as you. Phil Ferns is my earliest memory and he was pretty decent and Chris Sulley was a very solid performer. I don't remember them getting forward as much as Daniels and Francis do nowdays though which I guess bears out what Eddie said in the article

How many readers remember the magnificent Joe Sanaghan of the late 1940s? He was part of the defence with Wilson and Marsden who took us to great heights after the war. Oh how I recall his sliding tackles on right wingers (every team had two wingers) which took ball and player off the pitch. How wingers avoided being severely damaged by the railings in front of main stand I'll never know. Good analysis of the modern game by Eddie but the good old days have stayed with this supporter and will do so for ever.

All this praise for Charlie is well and good and without doubt he is very good going forward. But a high proportion of our goals against have come from crosses from our opponents right hand side (our left). Charlie does'nt stop the crosses coming in as well as Simon Francis does on our right side of defence. If he could sort out his defensive duties then he could perhaps be compared with Paul Morrel, the best left back I have seen at Dean Court.

It's joy to watch him terrorising defences with Pughie.

Paul Morrell for me, didn't look out of place at a higher level, got up and down the line with some great crosses and was a big guy with it, who had a big physical prescence in the box when defending.

Bit harsh on christer. He was a striker who was asked to fill in at left back after Jamie Vincent was sold, and to be generally did ok. Wayne fereday was a massive disappointment but again not a left back. My favourite was Neil masters, best left foot I've ever seen at Dean court. Remember a 40 yard free kick against Brighton in the fa cup. I played for moordown in mid/late nineties and Dave stocks was still a quality bat then, we also had ex cherries striker Andy Jones play for us.
