Eddie Howe insists “there is always pressure” placed on himself as Cherries boss – as he heads into a pivotal two-game spell to preserve the club’s Premier League status. Cherries are 18th in the division at present, with 31 points from 36 games. Asked whether this period provided the most pressure he had felt on himself, Howe insisted the pressure is always very high.
Eddie Howe said “I think there is always pressure. I’ve always said the pressure I place on myself is very, very high. My expectations of myself are very high. So, I think it’s very difficult to put any more pressure on yourself when you are that way inclined. Certainly the outside pressures I try to ignore, it’s the inward pressures that are coming from myself that you can never escape, so I think I’m very level in that. As always when you are going into big games, it’s about yourselves and your plan for the game. It’s about the process, not about the result, which is very difficult to sometimes think about because the result is the thing you want the most. But it’s all about how you are going to get the result. So I think for the players it’s about focusing on that rather than anything else. Other teams, other results, it’s just wasted energy. So focusing on how we are going to play is the only way to deal with the situation.”
