Eddie Howe: Everton links dismissed

The 35-year-old, who led the Cherries to promotion this season having returned from Turf Moor for a second spell, has been strongly linked with the vacant managerial role at Goodison Park.

And although Mitchell is not surprised by speculation linking Howe with a move to the top flight he is determined to retain his services.

Mitchell told the Daily Echo: "I think he is worthy of a Premier League job. We don't want to lose him but he is a fantastic manager and you can't take that away from him. His record speaks for itself so he is bound to be linked with Premier League clubs.

"If I was a boss of a Premier League club, I would be looking for somebody young and dynamic and someone who could bed in and stay for a long period of time. I am hardly surprised that, because of his record, he is linked with Premier League jobs.

"It is paramount I do everything I can to keep him and I will do so. All I can do is my best. We speak regularly, he loves what he is doing and we love him doing it."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
