Here's what Eddie Mitchell had to say about Eddie Howe's return to Dean Court.

Following the negotiations to bring Eddie Howe back to Dean Court, Chairman Eddie Mitchell was quoted on BBC Radio Solent as saying: "My wife persuaded me to try and bring them back. I don't normally listen to her so I had to swing it so that it was my idea so then it was OK. I didn't see why they wouldn't want to drop down to League One and, who knows, we might overtake them [Burnley] soon. The fans were a big factor but the main thing is we wanted the right man to take the club forward".
