..........no not us but it is an inspirational example of what is possible.

6 years ago, at the age of 31, Eddie Howe took charge of struggling Bournemouth.  They were 91st in the league and in dire financial straights.

Eddie is still the manager and they are top of the Championship playing attacking football.

What a fantastic successful example for all clubs to dream who are about the same position in the league hierarchy. That is us.  I would be very happy with half of that success.

"Howe used money from the Russian owner to bring in young, hungry players who have a real passion to be successful and become better players". He is expected to be managing in the Premier League soon, one way or the other.  

When he went to manage Burnley for 18 month he was not as successful.  However, their team that got promoted last season included many of his signings.  These included the free-scoring strikers of Danny Ings and Sam Vokes.
