Purely looking at what I consider the downside of Eddie Howe, I haven't got time to write all of the upsides. He was, as said above, stubborn and tended to get stuck in his ways of playing. Towards the end of his stay with us he seemed tired and to have run out of ideas as to how to get improvements in performances. However I will always think he was our best ever Manager due to the fact he brought us from near extinction to 5 seasons in the EPL. He's a hard act to follow and might be the man to get Celtic back to the top of the Scottish tree next season.
