Graeme Jones: Eddie Howe

Graeme Jones believes that Eddie Howe will inherit a healthy squad that is desperate to stay in the league as shown in their comeback draw against Brighton. Howe was in the stands with the owners to watch the game against Brighton. The latter finished the game with 10 men as goalkeeper Robert Sanchez was sent off late on. Jones however said that his appointment is yet to be confirmed and there has been no communication with Howe before or after the game.

“It’s easy to fraction in situations like this, but we as a group haven’t allowed it,” Graeme Jones said about Eddie Howe. “The boys are together. Whoever comes in will inherit a healthy football club pulling in the same direction. You don’t achieve the response in the manner we did if you’re not together. I think that’s what’s most pleasing today.”

“I think [the next manager] needs to build on what he’s seen tonight. I think he’s seen a togetherness. I think he’s seen a team that added a bit more possession, a bit more control on the ball, particularly in the second half.” he added. “I think he’ll inherit a team that off the ball was prepared and capable of going and pressing a brilliant Brighton team, with a fantastic footballing ‘keeper, high up the pitch. So I think he’ll have seen that it’s improved from Crystal Palace to tonight. I spoke to the boys at half-time and said nobody else is going to help us – it’s only us who can help us – and the response in the second half was the most pleasing part of today’s match.”
