Eddie Howe to be new manager?
One of our canine match analyst team awaits news from the south coast
Reports are being received from a number of sources that Eddie Howe is poised to sign as the new Charlton manager. Very sensibly he has turned down Crystal Palace. He has also decided not to go oop north to Burnley.
Charlton's new owners are prepared to double the salary he receives at the Cherries. The 33-year old is rated as one of the best younger managers in English football.
However, the latest news is that Bournemouth are fighting back and talks are taking place at Dean Court. Howe has a strong emotional attachment to the Cherries: Howe
It has also been reported on regional television news on the south coast that Crystal Palace have matched Charlton's offer and thrown in a trolley full of groceries from Sainsbury's as well.
Howe is also reported to be well settled with his family on the Costa Geriatrica, admittedly an attractive part of the country. Does he want a challenge that could take him to the next level on a sustainable basis?
Canine match analyst Homer the Cherry Hound has stated that he will leave his post at Didcot Town and see out his days at The Valley if Howe joins the Addicks.
Palace have been chasing Rochdale's manager.
