Bournemouth Evening Echo, Howe is quoted as saying: "Hopefully, if we achieve our objectives towards the end of the season, we can look back with a sense of pride and a sense we've achieved our objective. But until we've done that, we can't stop for a minute. You can't relax. I don't feel that way and I'm sure Jason doesn't feel that way. Until we're safe and still in the Football League, there will be no one sitting back and relaxing at all".
Howe goes on to say: "There's a lot of planning involved if you want to do the job properly and you do have to think ahead. You can't enjoy any win because you're thinking about the next game. That's the reality of it. I like to see opposition teams myself, so before you know it the whole week is taken up. But that's not me moaning, that's just the reality of the job. Luckily, we love football and we wouldn't be doing anything else given the choice. It's a fantastic opportunity and a fantastic job, but it's hard work".
