Time at Club:
AFC Bournemouth are managed by Eddie Howe who returned to the club for a second spell in 2012. Howe led the Cherries into the Premier League in 2015, preserving the club's top-flight status before securing an impressive 9th place finish last term.
Bournemouth set the football world alight throughout the 2014/15 season, in what proved to be the greatest campaign in the club's history. Boss Howe led the south coast outfit to the Championship title on the final day, meaning the Cherries leapt up to the Premier League - for the first time in their history - in style. The stunning achievement won Howe a plethora of individual honours, including the Football League Manager of the Decade award, while he went on to lead them to a respectible 16th place finish in their first season in the top-flight, followed by 9th in 2016/17.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Bournemouth collect wins versus AFC Wimbledon, Tottenham Hotspur, Brighton & Hove Albion & Huddersfield Town while suffering adverse results at Crystal Palace, Fulham, Burnley & Leicester City. Draws against Southampton & Newcastle United has seen them show mid-table form at best.
