The Eddie & Jason Show!

The Eddie & Jason Show!

So what do we know about our new manager, Eddie Howe and his assistant,Jason Tindall?

Let's start with Eddie



The former Bournemouth manager joined Burnley as our new gaffer in January 2011 replacing Brian Laws who had been sacked in December 2010.

He agreed a three-and-a-half year deal on the 15th January 2011.

During his playing days, Eddie Howe had three spells at Bournemouth. Howe began his professional career for the Cherries in 1994 after signing from local football team Parley Sports. He was a defender and in 1998 played a couple of times for the England Under 21 side.

In March 2002, Portsmouth signed Howe for £400,000, making him new manager Harry Redknapp's first signing. A knee injury though blighted his progress at Fratton Park and he was out for eighteen months before making a return in January 2004.

He was then loaned out to Swindon Town on transfer deadline day in March 2004 but failed to make one single appearance before returning to Fratton Park.

Howe then returned back to Bournemouth initially on loan for the first three months of the 2004-05 season.

It was a successful return and in November 2004 Bournemouth re-signed him permanently on a free transfer.

Just 29, Howe was promoted to the position of player-coach by manager Kevin Bond in December 2006 and was put in charge of the Cherries second-string. He was however still a first-team player and didn't retire until the summer of 2007 when a knee injury put paid to his playing career.

Bond was sacked as Cherries manager in September 2008 and Howe paid the price too.

However he returned as a youth coach under Jimmy Quinn and took over as caretaker manager when Quinn was sacked on the last day of December 2008

He was made the permanent manager of the club in January 2009 and brought the club out of the relegation zone despite a 17 point deficit.

At the start of the 2009-10 season, Howe set up a club record winning eight out of the first nine games.

Clubs were taking note and Peterborough, then in the Championship approached Howe following the sacking of Darren Ferguson but he rejected their offer.

Bournemouth, despite working under a transfer embargo were promoted to League One after two years in the bottom tier. Eddie Howe had made his name and was now well-respected and a target for a number of clubs. Before joining the Clarets, he had earlier during January 2011 turned down both Crystal Palace and Charlton Athletic having previously said 'no' to both Southampton and Peterborough.

..so onto Jason then!

The former Bournemouth assistant manager became assistant at Turf Moor following the appointment of ex-Cherries gaffer, Eddie Howe in January 2011

Tindall came through Charlton's youth system as a player before being released and then joining Bournemouth on a free transfer in 1998.

During his playing career, the midfielder was also on the books of Weymouth after being released by the Cherries in the summer of 2006. He was a utility player in his non-league days but then re-registered and returned to Dean Court for a second spell in February 2009

Tindall was appointed as player-manager of Weymouth in January 2007, but was sacked a year later in January 2008. In September 2008, Tindall was appointed as assistant manager to Jimmy Quinn at Bournemouth.

They look good together these two. Mildly amused by the ladies in the club shop referring to them as 'eye candy'! After Ternent, Cotts, Horse Face and Laws,I see what they mean!! ;-)

I think it's a unique and exciting moment in our history. These two look the real deal, composed, professional and competent in front of camera, there is everything to suggest that this will be their style and attitude in all they do. Not only do they suggest a steeliness and cautious confidence, but they seem very focused on the job in hand. Little commitment to success; each game at a time and yet beneath there just feels a capability to deliver. Only time will tell of course, and I have to admit they weren't my first choice (I would have gone for a been-there, done-it experienced guy), but there's a really good feel to this management team.

Ooops - where I say 'little commitment to success...', I mean that they aren't over-confident arrogant or over-promising. Far better to get more than we are led to expect than less, I think.

Yes i know where they are coming from since they have arrived the wife seems to be interested in the Clarets i've told her if she wants a season ticket next year i've told her to apply for the Cricket field stand. Don't need an ear bashing on the turf aswell as at home BK has a lot to answer for employing EH and JT.

Ther were'nt my first choice either however, since they came I'm impressed. I like the way he talks and their attitude. I also think this appointment has re-united the fans. When Laws was appointed everyone felt disapointed and I think we all had a little knot in our chest that said this doesn't feel right. The knots now gone, this does feel right! Eddie Howes Claret and blue army!!
