AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth set to lose figure to Newcastle United



Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe is coming back to haunt Bournemouth again, with the former Cherries boss now taking Andy Howe away from the side as reported by Mail Online.

The two are related as you can probably tell by the name, with the current Toon manager the uncle of the latter member of staff.

Eddie Howe spent several seasons with Bournemouth, taking them from the depths of the EFL and all the way into the Premier League. It once seemed unlikely that the Cherries would ever grace the top flight but the boss took them all the way and they performed admirably before falling back into the Championship.

Howe lost his post along the way but his nephew stayed on at the club without him. After a break from management, the boss was then appointed at Newcastle United and has been tasked with trying to keep the club afloat in the top flight of English football.

Now, after working together at the Vitality Stadium for a number of years, Howe is now keen to reunite with his family member in the Premier League.

Andy Howe’s current role has been in the scouting department for the second tier side and he looks likely to hold a similar role at Newcastle when he is brought in. Talks are ongoing and it looks likely now that after leaving Bournemouth, he will make the leap back up to the Premier League with his uncle. It could be a masterstroke too, as the two were part of the side that managed to get the Cherries competing in the Premier League not too long ago.

The Verdict

Eddie Howe is back for another raid on his former side and it could be a great move by the manager.

He is currently doing all he can to try and pull Newcastle away from the drop zone and getting someone he trusts in to help him make key first-team decisions could certainly benefit them. They have the money to spend now and if they can bring in the right players, then it could help keep them afloat.

As for Bournemouth, it’ll be a blow for them but they should still be able to compete. Because of their stint in the Premier League, they have a squad that is capable of competing at the top end of the Championship right now and a few more additions could lead to a certain promotion push.

Scott Parker will fancy leading them there now but if he has to wait another season, then at least the foundations are still in place, even if they do lose Andy Howe.
