Howe: Developing an arrogance

Howe: Developing an arrogance

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes his side are developing a winning a belief.

The Cherries have remained unbeaten in twelve games in all competitions.

It began with the win over Leyton Orient under the caretaker management of Dennis Rofe with Howe and Jason Tindall in the stands and has continued during Howe and Tindall's 11 game spell in the dugout.

When Howe and Tindall's return to Dean Court from Championship side Burnley was announced in October, the Cherries were 21st in League One with 8 points from 11 games with just one victory all season.

Now the Cherries are 9th in League One, with 24 points coming from their past 10 games.

The gap between AFC Bournemouth and the play-off places now stands at just 4 points, with Howe's squad just 8 points behind top of the table Tranmere, who had held a 19 point gap over the Cherries when they visited Dean Court seven weeks ago.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"I don`t think we are the real deal yet in terms of the end product, I don`t think we have got all our departments working quite how we want them but we are certainly well on the way and the results speak volumes for that.

"I could not have wished for a better start. But that is all it is. We have had a great run of 12 games, we have moved up the table, we are closing in on the teams above us but we have still got a long way to go. The character of the players has been very impressive and so has the mentality they are developing...'

'...We want to go to every ground in League One believing we are going to win. It is a psychological barrier and there is confidence within the camp that, hopefully, we can do that. We are developing that arrogance. You want it in a nice and controlled way but you need that belief to be successful and, hopefully, we are developing it.'
