On the matter, Day had this to say after Howe featured on Sky Sports’ coverage of the Palace recent game against Brighton & Hove Albion.
He said: “They’ve put Eddie Howe on to see if people will put two and two together and make a story that they can then run with. It’s either a story they already know is going to happen and they want to be in on it at the start.
“Or Eddie Howe said to his agent, or vice versa, ‘Look, you’ve already had six months off, it’s about time you told Palace that you’re available. So go on telly and say things like they’re a great team, they’re really well organised, but wouldn’t it be nice to see them score a few goals,’ which is basically what happened. For me, that was Eddie Howe putting himself in the shop window for the Palace job, to be honest.”
Would Howe at Palace be a good fit?
Howe parted ways with the Cherries after two spells at the club which saw the former player take Bournemouth from League Two all the way to the Premier League (via Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Day’s comments…
Eddie Howe has been in and around the Premier League with Bournemouth, however, after almost one season out of football management you would expect the 43-year-old to be chomping at the bit to get back on the touchline. With Hodgson’s future at Selhurst Park currently unclear, it is evident to see why there are links being made between the two parties.
