That’s a big mistake, what were the owners expecting? They were a tiny club in the premiership, their ground only holds 11,000 for God’s sake.

Not knowing the ins and outs of why Howe has left Bournemouth but I cant help but think that they need stability now not jumping on the madhouse merry go round that promises everything and ultimately achieves nowt.

They are hardly a big club who will be able to throw their weight about in the Championship.

Left by mutual consent.

I can't imagine him being out of work for too long,he'd be ideal for Watford.

Kewell ? Oldham must be desperate.  How long did he last at Notts county ? Ten weeks or something.  His post match interview after we played them still makes me laugh. Guy is a grade A plonker 

Indeed he is but not as much of a plonker as his predecessor there.

I don't think any manager leaves by mutual consent, the mutual consent part of the statement probably refers to how much his compensation is and how it's going to be paid.

As a side issue Artell is 20-1 with the bookies for the Bournemouth job, strange times we are living in.

Odds for the next Bournemouth manager:

Jason Tindall 4/7, Lee Johnson 6/1, Chris Hughton 9/1, John Terry 10/1, Danny Cowley 12/1, Paul Cook 12/1, Stephen Purches 14/1, Alex Neil 16/1, Gareth Ainsworth 16/1, Joey Barton 16/1, Karl Robinson, 16/1, Kenny Jackett 16/1, Lee Bowyer 16/1, Nigel Adkins 16/1, Nigel Clough 16/1, Nigel Pearson 16/1, Paul Tisdale 16/1, Ralf Rangnick, 16/1, Scott Parker 16/1, Steven Gerrard 16/1, Tony Pulis 16/1, Dave Artell 20/1.

I wouldn't wish some of the names on that list on Stoke, never mind Bournemouth.

No vacancies there I'm afraid.

He's a southern lad and failed to cut it at Burnley. I'd expect him to stay within reach of the south coast. WHU might have been a good fit if they'd needed a manager.  He does try to play the right way.

How long will Hodgson go on for?

I don't know what he'll do but the merry-go-round will eventually stop and he'll find employment. Even somewhere like Fulham if he was given some money.

I'd expect B'Mouth to maybe keep it in house.

Howe has done a great job overall at Bournemouth but it's probably the right time for him to leave. They have spent a lot of money for a club of their size, and apparently are looking at potential financial difficulties. They will need to massively cut the wage bill and reshape the squad, and it makes sense to do it under a different manager/coach. It's not like Farke at Norwich who has only been there 3 years - Howe has been in place for 8 years, and this year they've gone stale. They've still got Cook, Francis, Smith, and Daniels there from years ago!

Something that British coaches don't seem to do is take any time out - that seems to be more prevalent overseas. If I were him, I would take some time, get some rest (he's a workaholic by all accounts) to refresh himself, and go and learn some new skills or from other coaches. He failed in his last role away from Bournemouth, and he is still really young - young enough to still have a few more years at the top, he's clearly a decent coach. But he needs to choose his next role carefully. I wish him well, always liked Bournemouth being in the Premier League, they tried to be positive and play good football. Equally I think Bournemouth need to be careful or they will end up back in League 1 again pretty sharpish. Momentum is such a big thing, and works both ways.
