AFC Bournemouth boss Howe: 'I cannot see me leaving of my own accord'

EDDIE Howe says he is determined to help repay Maxim Demin’s commitment to Cherries and insists: “I cannot see me leaving this club of my own accord.”

Howe, speaking to the Daily Echo on the fifth anniversary of his appointment as Cherries boss, has helped transform the club’s fortunes during two spells at Dean Court.

Thrust into the hot-seat with their Football League status on the line, he masterminded the Greatest Escape when Cherries clawed back a 17-point penalty - with the deficit still at 10 points when Howe took charge permanently - to avoid relegation in 2009.

And despite the club’s parlous financial position and an ongoing transfer embargo, he overcame the odds to plot their promotion to League One before leaving for Burnley in January 2011.

Tempted back in October 2012, Howe became only the second man in history to lead the club into the second flight – the Championship dream coming after a nightmare start to the campaign.

His achievements, together with those of his staff and players, went a long way to justifying Demin’s considerable investment – with Howe striking up an excellent working relationship with the Russian backer.

Howe said: “Maxim has put a lot of money into the club and a lot of trust in me. He has allowed me to express myself as a manager and that is all you can ask because it doesn’t always happen.

"He has given me a licence to run the football side of the club and, although he keeps a close eye on what we are doing, he also lets us get on with our jobs.

“I am in regular dialogue with him and I know where I stand. I am really happy working with the people at the club and working for Maxim. I enjoy a good relationship with him and the board.

“I want to see the club continue to move forwards and upwards and know Maxim shares that ambition.

“If we could match the success of the past five years, we would be in a good position.

“Nothing would please me more than to see us stabilise in this division and eventually look to move up. It may take some time but that is the aim.

“I don’t think you can ever look too far ahead in management. You can be well thought of one minute and not so well thought of the next.

“I have learned a great deal about life in recent years and, while the people here now remain, I cannot see me leaving this club of my own accord. Maxim, the board and the supporters have put a lot of faith in me and I want to repay them for that.”

5 years ago, as much as I've always loved Eddie as a player, I REALLY thought he was WAY too young to be taking on such a task. I couldn't of been more behind him, but I genuinely felt, that with a 17 point deduction, a team playing garbage basically, and try as we all knew Eddie would, we were doomed. Not only would we drop out of the League, but we'd quite probably face extinction as we know the club. Delighted to say that of cause I was totally wrong on all counts!!
Eddie is nothing short of a Messiah to AFCB, pure Genius. To even think of him and Jason going again is not worthy of contemplation. With them at the helm and Maxim's common sense approach to running a football club, as fans we must be the most fortunate anywhere, I'd certainly not swap places with anyone!! Thank You!!

^ Oxbig his name is Grabban you plastic Cherry!

I seem to remember Coullibaly has been played up front before so if Lewis does end up 'batting for the other side' with Brighton perhaps along with Brett, Josh & TK we already have someone in waiting. I believe we still have enough depth in midfield to spare Mo and move him forward.

Looking forward to tommorrows game the squad selection should be interesting.

Oh come on!! Are you seriously saying that you are happy with Pitman, who has scored about 2 league goals in open play this season, McCoid, Rantie and Couillibaly who haven't scored one, leading our front line? The next two weeks will prove Demins real ambitions. Best we can hope for tomorrow is a nill-nill.

Agreed. I'm skipping tomorrows game in favour of a nice boozy lunch in the New Forest. for that very reason. The only reason Grabban is not a Brighton player yet is because their Chairman is in Australia. Expect an announcement in the next few hours. Regards.

Not going tomorrow but I'll bet you'll be itching to see the Liverpool game. Well perhaps you'd like to skip that game as well then if you can't be bothered, give your potential ticket to someone who's actually willing to support the team.

We go to watch AFCB, not Lewis fecking Grabban FC.

Eddie Howe is the backbone of this club and with him we will upset a few of the 'big' clubs. As for Grabban let him go and get in a prolific striker. Grabban's record of 3 (three) goals in open play in the past 20 (twenty) games is hardly prolific is it. He's a good hard working player but he's more a winger than a striker.

Seriously what is it with the Pitman haters. Every week he gets unfair stick and is the scapegoat for whenever we lose. His goals took us up last season. His goals got us out of league 2 and his goals kept us in the football league. One day he will be remembered as a club legend. He was the top goal scorer in his first season at city despite being on the bench a lot. He has scored seven goals this season. On Tuesday he scored 2 and got an assist.

Well CatsWhiskers we’ve got who we’ve got in the squad so we need to support them! I don’t kid myself that goals from our strikers are prolific so we need to change our way of play to either accommodate them or to use them to clear the way up front for midfielders goals. I do have a feeling that Mo could well be a bit of a prospect upfront and would like to see McQuoid re-instated as a striker too. I’d be quite surprised to see Grabban on the team sheet tomorrow but you never know. In the meantime if Eddie has reinforcements in mind we’ll see what that brings.

I seem to remember Coullibaly has been played up front before so if Lewis does end up 'batting for the other side' with Brighton perhaps along with Brett, Josh & TK we already have someone in waiting. I believe we still have enough depth in midfield to spare Mo and move him forward.

Looking forward to tommorrows game the squad selection should be interesting.

Oh come on!! Are you seriously saying that you are happy with Pitman, who has scored about 2 league goals in open play this season, McCoid, Rantie and Couillibaly who haven't scored one, leading our front line? The next two weeks will prove Demins real ambitions. Best we can hope for tomorrow is a nill-nill.
Agreed. I'm skipping tomorrows game in favour of a nice boozy lunch in the New Forest. for that very reason. The only reason Grabban is not a Brighton player yet is because their Chairman is in Australia. Expect an announcement in the next few hours. Regards.

It was but by the time Eddie took over as manager we were 10 points off of safety and the rest as they say is history. Brilliant decision by Adam Murry at the time & one he was ridiculed for making.

Yes they'll make mistakes but they will keep learning and growing. His ethics and conduct on and off the pitch are exemplary. We won't win every game, sometimes we will play rubbish but other times we will nick an unlikely win and we'll have more good days than bad. The biggest reward, imo, for the long term fans who have held us together, chucked every penny they had into buckets over the years to keep us alive is this.

There is much managerial shenanigan going on in football clubs up and down this nation in the majority of cases the managers are decent people promising to do their best however some do fall by the wayside for over-promising. Most of us realise how lucky we are to have EH and JT managing our team. Of course there are few, for whatever reasons, they don't think that he is good enough or that he is doing a good job. I am jolly glad that it isn't up to the supporters otherwise managers would change as regular intervals as the guards at Buckingham Palace.

In my simple way of thinking I prefer to trust EH and give him my support and I will leave others to content with their opinion and of course I hope they are proven wrong in the long term.

Good luck to the team tomorrow. Up the mighty Cherries

Few of us doubt Eddies commitment to the Club and that we are lucky to have him here. Listening to him on Solent this morning he made it very clear that money would not be thrown at the problem, if a value for money opportunity arrived to sign a replacement ( AFCB have accepted Brightons offer) they would , if not they would look for a loan player or fill the void from within the Squad. I don't believe that Brighton's approach was welcome, but it will make compliance with the "Fair Play" rules easier.

According to Talksport, Bournemouth are closing in on Cardiff City defender John Brayford.

The former Derby County Player of the Year is yet to feature in a Premier League game since moving to Wales for a reported £2.5m in July. There are thought to be other Championship clubs tracking the former Burton player, and if Bournemouth can shake the competition, they will land a full-back that had proven himself as one of the best at Championship level.

Good signing and excellent backup for Francis!! :)

If Grabban does go I have every confidence that new striking recruits will be brought in on either a permanent or loan deal, especially with Thomas off to Rotherham, Tubbs at Crawley Stockley not yet Championship material.

I fully expect that Eddie and Jason and looking into options at this very moment

The situation then was very different to the situation now. What's more he promised that he wouldn't go to Crystal Palace or Charlton, who were the teams trying to get him at that time, not that he would never leave. The Burnley job offer came the day after.
If you also read the matchday programmes or listen to Eddie's interviews you would also know that when the Burnley offer came in, he was worried that people think he was unambitious if he turned that offer down following Palace, Charlton and the Stains. In hindsight, he admitted, that he shouldn't have left us but he didn't regret the experience at Burnley.
He guided us to league safety in 2009, which most genuine fans accept that this alone saved the club's existance. He has guided us to 2 promotions, no other manager has ever done that with the Cherries. It was also the foundations of his team which reached the Play Offs in 2011.
We are playing in a style that excites the supporters.
I, for one, am grateful and incredibly happy that we have Eddie and Jason at the helm. With 'Uncle' Max providing the financial support we've never had before. Plus the likes of Big Fletch, Baby Fletch, Stephen Purches, Matty Holmes and Joe Roach maintaining the AFCB family among the coaching staff.
In the words of Harold MacMillan, 'We've never had it so good'!!

Hubble, bubble toil and trouble! Are you guys the modern day Macbeth witches? You should get together with Oxbig in the New Forest and mull over 'the horrendous position the Cherries are currently in'. I had always thought that the Chuckle Brothers were based in Rotherham?!

I seem to remember Coullibaly has been played up front before so if Lewis does end up 'batting for the other side' with Brighton perhaps along with Brett, Josh & TK we already have someone in waiting. I believe we still have enough depth in midfield to spare Mo and move him forward.

Looking forward to tommorrows game the squad selection should be interesting.

Oh come on!! Are you seriously saying that you are happy with Pitman, who has scored about 2 league goals in open play this season, McCoid, Rantie and Couillibaly who haven't scored one, leading our front line? The next two weeks will prove Demins real ambitions. Best we can hope for tomorrow is a nill-nill.
Agreed. I'm skipping tomorrows game in favour of a nice boozy lunch in the New Forest. for that very reason. The only reason Grabban is not a Brighton player yet is because their Chairman is in Australia. Expect an announcement in the next few hours. Regards.
Are you actually a supporter then?

Eddie Howe (and assistant Jason Tindall) are IMO the best management team
we have ever hadat the club. We've had a few very good managers over the years Freddie Cox(1950 's), Bill McGarry(1960's), John Bond(1970's) & Harry Redknapp(1980's) but the Eddie Howe era (so far) has had it all. From almost football obscurity to hopefully a prolonged period in the championship and building for even greater rewards. Long may it last.

As regards the striker debate,it is a fact that at present we have only 2 recognised strikers on the books in Pitman & Rantie. However McCoid did play up front at one time for the club and did rather well before being used outwide or midfield when he came back. He is quite tall but not known for his heading ability but could be tried again upfront in the short term if Grabban goes to Brighton as seems likely. Another gamble that could be tried (and here I agree with TedMcCP) that Coulibaly could be tried as a stiker, he has plenty of pace and ability on the ball,again may not be great with his head, but could play a wide striker role in the Thierry Henry mould cutting in from the left and shooting with his right foot.He is very much an unknown still having had a limited run in the team due to injury and an abundance of wingers at the club. He looked a very promising prospect when he played against Real Ma
drid and had a few of their illustrious defenders backpeddling. Worth a gambleas a substitute on the bench as a striker or winger.
Also Pitman's record of a goal in every 2games stands up well against any of our record goalscorers and he has a few assists as well. His goals against games ratio is far superior to "Big Fletch so far and probabably may even compare to Ted McDougall and Dickie Dowsett. So why are you all knocking him ?? He will come good again,prolific strikers usually do and he scored a lot of his goals last season after xmas and into the new year, so try encouraging him rather moaning

Hmm, well I guess we can safely say that we really don't know each other.

However, I get the impression that you are someone who is still smarting over John Bond's departure to Norwich, taking half of the team with him. Don't worry, my old man was the same. Yet because you can no longer moan about that, you've decided to tarnish Eddie Howe with the same brush. Perhaps I'm wrong, but you do tend to criticise Eddie Howe with little or no justification in support. Don't forget, when Kevin Bond was sacked, Eddie was sacked along with him, where was the club's loyalty then?

I have no intention to maintain a spat with you. Eddie's managerial track record at Dean Court is clear for all to see and he is quite clearly the best manager we've had.

Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, the world would be a boring place without it, even if your opinion, in this case, is unmerited and obviously wrong! ;-)

Anyway

Yet because you can no longer moan about that, you've decided to tarnish Eddie Howe with the same brush. Perhaps I'm wrong, but you do tend to criticise Eddie Howe with little or no justification in support. Don't forget, when Kevin Bond was sacked, Eddie was sacked along with him, where was the club's loyalty then? I have no intention to maintain a spat with you. Eddie's managerial track record at Dean Court is clear for all to see and he is quite clearly the best manager we've had. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, the world would be a boring place without it, even if your opinion, in this case, is unmerited and obviously wrong! ;-) Anyway Phil McG (Italy)

And as I've already pointed out, thus starting this merry-go-round, Eddie Howe said that he wasn't going to leave for Palace or Charlton, who had tabled a bid. It was Eddie Mitchell who came outside D.C. saying 'Eddie's Staying!'. The Burnley offer came in the day after that.
As E.H. has said himself, after turning down the Stains, Palace and Charlton jobs in fairly quick succession, he felt that people would think he lacked ambition if he also turned down the Burnley job too. In hindsight, he admitted, he shouldn't have left but his experience at Burnley was valuable. He came back because of the effect the loss of his mother had on his family and he was so far away from them. Being the oldest of the children he felt it was his duty.
I'm quoting Eddie's own words, not rumours.

Oh, I'm very sorry, I must have confused you with another person who knows diddly squat.

At least that explains your cantankerous miserable old man comments. Perhaps a change of scenery will do you good.

UP THE CHERRIES!!
