Cherries: Howe heaps praise on Tindall and backroom staff

EDDIE Howe has highlighted the influential role of Jason Tindall in Cherries’ revival and insists: “It is never a one-man show.”

The Cherries manager deflected praise to his assistant and the club’s backroom team following his unbeaten start to life back in Dorset.

Howe has received plaudits from players, fans and chairman Eddie Mitchell for masterminding Cherries’ impressive run since his Dean Court return.

The 34-year-old has hit the headlines for guiding Cherries to within five points of the League One play-off zone following his switch from Burnley.

But Howe believes his staff and number two Tindall also deserve their share of the credit for the transformation of recent weeks.

Tindall assisted Howe during his first spell in the Cherries hot-seat before moving north to continue the partnership at Burnley.

The Londoner then returned to take his place alongside Howe in the Cherries technical area for the second time.

Howe insists the management duo remain as determined as ever to “find an edge” in order to bring success to the Dorset outfit.

He told the Daily Echo: “Jason is, firstly, very loyal, a very hard worker and I think he is an excellent coach.

“We bounce off each other and I am very comfortable with his ideas on the game and my ideas on the game, and they mirror each other very well.

“I think we bring out the best in each other in terms of always trying to push the boundaries to find new ideas, and trying to evolve our coaching style.

“If you are still doing the same drills you did two years ago, you have stood still. We are always trying to find an edge and a new way of doing things.

“I am very thankful to have him by my side and I know we are better as a team than we are individually, so I think that is the important thing.”

Team-mates during their Cherries careers, Howe and Tindall ensured their place in Dean Court folklore during their first stint at the helm. They miraculously saved the club from relegation to the Conference before dramatically winning promotion back to League One, both achievements coming despite severely limited resources.

Howe continued: “No one is going to give you the success or wins and you have to earn every one.

“You do that by working as hard as you can to be as best prepared as you can be. That is very much our motto and we both share that together.”

During their first spell in charge of Cherries, Howe and Tindall were backed up by goalkeeping coach Neil Moss and physio Steve Hard.

Long-serving duo Moss and Hard both remain at the club as part of a hugely increased backroom staff.

Howe added: “It is never a one-man show at any football club and you are only as good as the staff you have around you to help you.

“I am very fortunate here. I am really pleased with the structure of the staff since I have come in.”

Sounds like a modern day Cloughie and Taylor pairing. Let's hope it doesn't end up with a falling out. Keep up the good work Eddie and Jason. Three points today would be a fantastic achievement, following previous results.

Having first hand experience of the Clough Taylor set-up - I can say Eddie and Jason are very close to forming the similar set-up at AFCB, although obviously differently in their own way !
Long may it continue to the Championship and beyond !

Typical Eddie, a man with his feet set firmly on the ground, I imagine that Kiplings peom "IF" is his mantra. Like others I immediately thought of the Clough - Taylor partnership , one complimenting the other's strengths & weaknesses. A team and the art of team building is that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Long may the partnership last. They both are work alcoholics, who leave nothing to chance and deserve all the success they get..

I think it's fair to say many of us were surprised when Jason was first made Eddie's assistant at the beginning, but there is no doubting his importance now and that "Hairband" is a major part of the success that is Eddie Howe....

I was thinking exactly the same as I was reading the piece, are we looking at a pair that will be compared to them in years to come, by the rest of football as well as us. If the trophies and promotions come then quite possibly, you never know. But Taylor wanted to be the main man and went back to Brighton, does Jason want to be again after Weymouth is the question and probably one that Eddie never asks him! Bruce Rioch and Stewart Houston were a good partnership too at Arsenal, then went to QPR in opposite positions! But can't see Jason as boss and Eddie his assistant somewhere else though lol.

Definitely was a surprise after being part of Jimmy Quinn's team and the football we played at the time......and forced Darren Anderton to retire 6 months early too.
