Against the backdrop of financial power, it becomes the eye of the typhoon
・I’ve finally woken up from a 14 year nightmare where the celebrity is ‘Michael Ashley’. When the Saudi Arabian investment fund group took over the new owner in the middle of last season, the deterioration progressed, and Eddie Howe, who had a track record at Bournemouth, was invited as the new director. Reinforcing ready-to-use players such as Trippier and Guimarães, he was at the bottom for a while, but eventually moved up to 11th place.
・Similar to the winter transfer market, they have continued to make large-scale reinforcements this summer, and succeeded in acquiring talents that the big clubs were aiming for, such as Isaac, the Swedish national team FW, and Botman, the Dutch national team DF. Since last season, the growth of existing forces such as Joelinton and Saint-Maximin has been remarkable, and in Section 4 against Manchester C, they faced each other head-on and played an equal game of 2-2.
・It is likely that the team will be reborn as a team that is fully capable of qualifying for the European Cup in a short period of time, and will be a presence that will disrupt the Premier League this season.
＜Summary of The First Half＞
・A great breakthrough that far exceeded prewar expectations. Coach Howe, who has a reputation for organizational development, has applied disciplined and harmonious tactics to the team, and the performance is stable in both offense and defense. Compared to the previous Bruce administration, which was all about playing big football with momentum, the content of the play has improved. Needless to say, the big turning point was the purchase of the club by the Saudi government fund in November last year, but this leap that was achieved in just one year cannot be realized only by financial strength. A strengthening plan based on a medium- to long-term perspective is getting on track.
