Howe's Zat! It's Official!

Eddie Howe has been confirmed as our new manager on the club's official website.

The 33 year old former Bournemouth gaffer has signed a three-and-a-half year deal.

His assistant at Dean Court, Jason Tindall will also now be his second-in-command at Turf Moor.

Taking about the move,Howe told the official site:

"It is just a fantastic opportunity for Jason and myself to join such a big, ambitious and progressive club, and we are delighted.

'We had such a great time at Bournemouth and it was always going to take a special club for us to leave, because of the fantastic success we've had there in the past two years.

'We just felt Burnley was that club and we are ready to take on a huge challenge...'

Wow,not often you hear those comments in relation to 'ickle old Burnley!!

Welcome aboard Eddie & Jason

Really excited about this appointment. Can't wait to see him in the dugout instead of the hapless Laws! Let's hope he portrays some passion and excitement, I think he will whip them up and motivate the team! I thought he came across really well in the post-match intereview on Friday following his last game in charge at Bournemouth. He showed great dignity and humility plus he was clearly emotional about leaving the Cherries (unlike Coyle at Burnley). He seems to be level-headed, not too ambitious but aware that he can't look a gift horse in the mouth sometimes. He did turn down four clubs,latterly Palace & Charlton before deciding to come to Turf Moor so hopefully that attitude will be good for us

Couldn't agree more TMP - really looking forward to seeing young Eddie and his team get started. I will be unveiling a new BFC cup in the office tomorrow to commemorate this fantastic appointment.

He looks good, I bet he will have a pally approach to the players like Coyle and should get a good team spirit. I hear he is good at getting a good shape. His tactics and transfer deals - let's see.

They usually have one. and I suspect all the hoo-hah about an announcement on Monday relates to the press conference rather than the earlier confirmation today which let's face it was unexpected on a Sunday!

I think the Board have taken their time to appoint the right man. I trust the Board have also released the funds for Eddie to take his time to get the right players. I am really enthusiastic about Eddie!
