On the latest Essential Football episode we take a closer look at the rise of Eddie Howe. The Newcastle boss will celebrate 600 games as a manager when he takes charge of the Magpies at home to West Ham on Saturday – live on Sky Sports – as they continue their pursuit of Champions League football. Howe has also led Newcastle to their first cup final for 24 years – some rise for a manager that began his career in charge of a Bournemouth side that were bottom of the Football League and in danger of going out of business 15 years ago. Sky Sports reporters Mark McAdam – who worked with Howe at Bournemouth - and Keith Downie join Peter Smith to discuss the standout moments in the manager’s career, what he’s like away from the dugout, and what the future holds.
