What Should Newcastle Expect From New Manager Eddie Howe?

Posted by

“Make each day your masterpiece,” was one of the many inspirational quotes from American college basketball coach John Wooden which at one time adorned the walls of Eddie Howe’s office at Bournemouth.

In the 1970s, Wooden radically revolutionized UCLA’s basketball program, leading the Bruins to ten national titles, including a school-record seven in a row. His definition of success was having the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ve done everything you can.

Reading one of Wooden’s books “changed my beliefs on coaching, management, and life,” Howe told Graham Hunter’s Big Interview podcast in 2016, and his own journey at Bournemouth was defined by his almost crippling dedication to his craft.

“You ask anyone, Ed’s biggest strength is his work ethic,” Jason Tindall, Howe’s assistant with the Cherries, told 5 Live’s Football Daily podcast. “He leaves no stone unturned and works all the hours needed to be successful.”
