Fan momentum grows for Joe Roach return

AFCB fans saw the door open for someone to replace Chris Hargreaves at the club this week and with Shaun Brooks and Paul Groves also leaving there is a ground swell of opinion for the return of Joe Roach. In the last few days the Twitter trending for Roach to come back has been strong and the talent spotting experience and teaching ability of the master trainer is something that Eddie Howe will know all about and hopefully will not ignore.

Having overseen the development of players like Sam Vokes and Danny Ing that are doing so well in the Championship at Burnley, as well as Josh McQuoid and Brett Pitman at AFCB and many others, it is easy to see why Joe is so much in demand by the fans. 

This week the Echo reported that Joe Roach was among those being considered for a position at the club and it will be excellent if he does decide that he has unfinished business at AFCB. Joe resigned his position in June 2011, when Eddie Mitchell was chairman, having had more than a decade at the club. I only hope that there is no remaining issues between Joe and AFCB. Hopefully Eddie Howe can speak with Joe and get him on board, because this would be a very popular decision and I believe it would give the structure of the club much firmer foundations going forward with the youth squads playing the attractive football that AFCB supporters have known and become accustomed to.

It is also rumoured that Carl Fletcher could make a return to AFCB, having left Conference side Barnet FC, so it is hoped that there is some good news along these lines next week.
