Championship managerial changes are afoot

The chairmen are getting jittery again at some clubs. While Southampton in the Premiership will grab the headlines in their search for a new manager, there are others now in the Championship that are looking to make a change starting with Leeds Utd. The Yorkshire club will be looking for something different having seen Brian McDermott fail to get any consistency with all the problems at Leeds going on in the background. Forest have already opted for Stuart Pearce. Blackpool are looking for an inspirational manager, while Charlton have also made another change at the top with Bob Peeters from Waasland-Beveren, a Belgium side, coming in for Jose Riga. For AFCB though it is stability that we need and Eddie Howe remains the perfect fit.
New challenges for Eddie at AFCB should hold his interest.
I am looking forward to seeing what Eddie can do with some money behind him. I believe that is a challenge that Eddie is enjoying as he has not had such a transfer kitty before and while it is far from the biggest in the Championship, it is something that the Cherries have not been able to even dream about in past years. While Eddie Howe can see that there is more growth to come at Bournemouth he will hopefully remain in place, even if other clubs would like him to join them.

Each time there is a managerial vacancy though Eddie Howe's name tends to pop up which is a little disconcerting. As a bright, young manager though it should not be surprising that he is automatically connected to such vacant positions. But there is much to keep Eddie at the Cherries and he has plenty of time to ponder further moves down the line once he has built up his stock. That elusive title is something I believe drives him having missed out on the League Two and One titles and he is building a team that should aim be competitive even though they are fighting against massive parachute payments that some of the clubs will have.
