On Saturday it was announced that the Cherries have assigned former player Jason Tindall as their manager.
Almost 10 days on from Eddie Howe leaving his pride and enjoy by mutual consent and the club has acted swiftly to replace the man that took the South siders to great heights. Sadly, all good things must come to an end and that’s exactly the case for Eddie Howe.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has left the club by mutual consent after their relegation from the Premier League.
Not travelling too far away from home Bournemouth has appointed their assistant manager Tindall as the new master at the helm. Being able to identify the Cherry way well while installing new ideas might just be the answer for the now Championship team.
The Championship-bound Cherries have today confirmed Jason Tindall – Eddie Howe’s former No 2 – will take over as manager.

Howe brings to an end 25 years of playing and managing the club combined. His inclusion as the club’s leader took them from their darkest hour to the highest point.
He was a true legend to the club. With this in mind, one thing is certain in this new chapter for the Vitality outfit is that Jason Tindall has a difficult test on the horizon to either take them to the same heights or reach even higher levels.
Nonetheless and despite the task he faces, he is delighted plus more than accepted the challenge ahead. Of course, Eddie wouldn’t leave his second love in dismay and would only leave somebody in charge that trust he trust. A man who feels it’s an “honour” to be handed the responsibility.
It’s an honour and a privilege to be the manager of such a great club.
Given the success of the club over the last 12 years, with Eddie in charge and me by his side, I’m not going to come in and rip everything up and start again. I would be a fool to do that.
But I’m my own person with my own ideas and I will be looking to implement them as soon as we get back on the training ground. (Via: theathletic.co.uk)
How soon will they be back in the Premier League
The EFL and who will win it is not one you call off the bat. One season you fighting for one of the play-off spots and then the next, faffing around somewhere mid-table. Hopefully, the club doesn’t lose all of their stars having already lost their best centre back Nathan Ake to Man City.
Possible exits for Callum Wilson and David Brooks have already begun and made many rounds. It will take a lot more doing and asking if they are to lose many of the Cherries’ core while having to fight for a Premier League retake.
