    Where next?

    Always seems like a good manager, with limited resources, playing good football. Where's he going to end up on the PL merry-go-round ? Who's going to get the heave ho and open up a spot for him?

    Everton would have been a good call bar the obvious.

    I can't work him out. That's not helped by the fact that I find his weird toothy grin/grimace very irritating! But his team played some good stuff without ever seeming to learn any tactical lessons. Season after season, no real progress. And for all his supposed coaching skills, he rarely seemed to improve the players he signed. Ibe and Solanke went backwards. Lloyd Kelly was really wanted by Klopp, who would surely have helped him push on, but under Howe he had a so-so season, when he finally got a few chances (we should go back and buy him now). And when Howe went to Burnley he struggled. So I still don't know how much he deserves the hype. His next move is really going to be his big test.

    You can't really knock getting and keeping a tiny club like Bournemouth in the this league for so long, but at the same time all his signings were shit and the whole thing just looks a bit uninspiring, considering what was achieved. I can't on one hand say his buys have been crap without acknowledging that this shows me must be a pretty great coach. Loads of players he dragged up the divisions with him remained his most important.

    Bournemouth though. Will anyone miss them? I mean aside from giving us 15 million every so often?

    Watford are always looking for managers.

    He's a massive bluenose, so maybe they'll go for him once Carlo wakes up and realises he needs to escape back to sanity.

    I'll never miss anyone who gets relegated, but Bournemouth were pretty likeable as a club. Much rather them than West Brom, personally. At least Bournemouth tried to play football. WBA have made a history of playing uninspired shite to varying degrees of success.

    Yeah they play good footy. I didn't want Leeds to get promoted but I'm kinda glad that three clubs from 200 plus miles south with shitty little grounds and hardly any away section went down while two clubs from less than a 100 miles away with nice big away sections came up.

    He talks without moving his teeth. In most of his post match interviews..

    Hes a ventriloquist..

    In first few season in the prem.. it was pretty bad.. I think someone must have had a quiet word, he doesn't do it as much anymore...

    Had our social club in stitches every time he did an interview after a game..

    'Gottle of Gear' someone would shout...  Place would go into hysterics..

    When he took over the club they were nr 91 of 92 teams in the league system. Cant other than be impressed with what he has done with them. Think he missed a trick with not moving earlier when his stock was higher, as they seem to have gone backwards the last few seasons.

    Their recruitment, and his movement in the transfer market have been shocking and looking at the team its quite horrendously shite given the money they spent.

    Toshack did something similar with Swansea. Then he moved on to Spain and had more success (but with pretty much zero appreciation back in the UK). Howe - who has been hyped to the skies - needs to show he can really have a positive impact on another club.

    Don’t see him ever landing a job at a top 6 club, maybe Everton is his best option.

    From what I read yesterday, they pummeled money into the team in the lower divisions and even fell foul of FFP. Which makes his achievement kind of unimpressive really.

    Can't see Everton sacking Carlo Ancelotti for Eddie Howe any time soon

    He's the new George Burley - celebrated for doing well with the small and unfashionable club for which he once played, struggled everywhere else, then faded into obscurity.

    Ancelotti just isn't the man for Everton.

    I know he only joined around Christmas but he has a lower win ratio than likes of Silva and Fat Sam....

    I think that's cos he's been concentrating on trying to get the shape & club/team ethos right so that when he gets better players in those who remain will be able to perform alongside them.
