I do like the attitude Eddie Howe has got there, they do keep going. And they do attack. However, he does suffer a lot of the same issues as Martinez. If you were going in that direction, you might as well hold your nose and go for someone like Brendan Rodgers.
Argument would be that Howe is still learning and is more likely to grow with the club.
Not sure Rodgers would be anything but what he has been for the last couple years.
Still think Rodgers is a decent manager but just a massive bell. Howe seems a decent person so there's that as well.
