Burnley refuse Cherries approach for Howe

Championship side Burnley have this (Thursday) evening refused an official approach by AFC Bournemouth to speak to manager Eddie Howe.

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell had earlier confirmed that an approach had been made to Burnley after mounting speculation that Howe was set to make a sensational return to Dean Court.

However Burnley have refused the approach from the Cherries and released a statement on their official website stating that no agreement has been reached between the two clubs.

Burnley Chief executive Lee Hoos told burnleyfootballclub.com...

"Bournemouth have made an unsolicited and unwanted approach for manager Eddie Howe.

"Burnley Football Club would like to stress that no agreement has been reached and Eddie Howe is still Burnley manager.

"No permission has been granted for Bournemouth to speak to Eddie."

In my eyes it is worth noting that they didn't threaten to bring the FA in which, if we had genuinely done this they could easily do. Would suggest to me it's a PR stunt for the Burnley board so that they look better externally. Despite all parties knowing otherwise.

Guys let's not swear too much! Surely EM states we have no money to pay any compensation. So really the story ends there except of course the bookies don't normaly get it so wrong.Why would our Eddiewant to come back. To urn things around. Well the squad smells it stinks and that is at the root of the problem. If he an makea silk purse out of our sows ear then he will get poached and be away again. We need to rant at our Board don;t lt < mind games distract you. It was supporters power that confronted EM and made him sack his manager. Keep the pressure on and see if he can clear off at last and make way for a good clean syndicate to coe in to Dean Court .

If it is for personal reasons that he wants to move back to the south coast, I for one wish him well and all Bournemouth fans too. As supporters we don't make the choices of players and managers we want we just support them. We lost Coyle to Bolton and maybe have learnt lessons for this move. Good Luck
