This looks like it could be the season when the Bournemouth dream dies .

Just simply does anyone think that Eddie Howe could be attracted to Ashton Gate in the summer ? 
 

He would seem like the ideal candidate to take us to the next level.

Evidently he would have quite a few clubs after his services but I really think that we could be a good fit for him .

We have more potential than Bournemouth.

 

Didn’t Bournemouth massive overspend Russian oligarch money, breaching historic FFP rules, to get promotion? It’d be a much different challenge for Howe with us and new FFP restrictions.

I think he'd like the idea of the "project". but hasn't he had that with Bournemouth?

Also, there has been a lot of speculation of Howe as a future England manager, and he will surely be looking upwards for his next job, rather than down.

Actually thought he would get either Everton or West Ham jobs. Not sure now there is another PL job that might become available in the future which he might get. Might have to go down a level if he does leave Bournmouth.

we've got a decent squad but not necessarily in the right order…

He didn't overspend to get the promotions. A lot of players came through the leagues with him and were bought fairly cheaply so I think he'd buy into our policy. 

Also, taking another club up into the Premier league would add more power to his cv. I think we'd be an ideal fit for him.

He did and he didn't- check the accounts?

Wouldn't mind Frank from Brnetford, though Smith has the promotion and a good stint with them too.

Seem to have a better balance under Frank than Smith though, yet still great footballing sides...Smith's sides are goal-filled- at both ends though!

Long may Aston Villa lose though!!

Give it a rest. How about supporting the manager we have, that have us currently sat 2 point behind the playoffs, eh. 

Why are our fans suddenly so entitled? Listen to yourselves. 

It’s pretty obvious what the thread is about. So why bother coming on here?

Not self entitled. Just bored of rubbish football.

Cannot structure a defence Smith.

Aston Villa and Brentford last season both conceded quite freely in his time there.

We would score...but we would also concede a decent amount!

Plus, as GrahamC would surely say if he were here with us now, Eddie's forwards fall over in the box every game and are awarded penalties, which they then proceed to tuck away into the corner, and we wouldn't want that sort of thing at AG now would we? (I'd imagine Eddie doesn't want for "box entries," though, thinking about it)

As I have an opinion on the thread, that's why. Embarrassing.

Would take Hughton over Howe every time

Do you hear that, @Major Isewater  Stop being so naughty.

Think you have the words naughty and idiotic mixed up. 

Honestly have had enough of this fan base and the constant negativity. 

Not having another argument, can't be bothered. Good luck with employing Eddie Howe. 😆😆😆

In the 2 seasons prior to promotion he spent around £3.5 million on players each season. In the first season in the Prem he spent around £40 million. Not exactly throwing it around.

The wage bill, the turnover-- the FFP losses allowed at that time?

There's a reason that the EFL pursued them for 3 years? As they did Leicester! They eventually came to a settlement but the EFL didn't let go- 3 years they were in the PL before they eventually paid up or came to an arrangement.

Well personally I'm not asking for Eddie Howe or anybody else for that matter, IF LJ can keep winning football matches.

Not sure why you think discussing the various merits etc of other managers should be taboo though.

Major has asked a reasonable question in my book.

It’s a forum. Ideas are discussed however outlandish they may seem to you. If LJ were ever to go I’m sure that SL would be interested in Howe. Whether he would be interested is another matter but you never know.   Yet again you are just picking a fight where it’s not needed.

I agree but he still has to coach them and he's been able to survive whilst playing attacking football. It's that pedigree that appeals to me as a potential future manager for us. Or maybe we should go for someone that's done average at Oldham and Barnsley again.......

Why are some fans always quick to get on other's backs? We are all wanting to improve the playing squad with better players than we already have, what's so different or wrong about wanting a better caliber of manager/coach?
