Exclusive: Dean Windass says lack of pressure at Crystal Palace would suit Eddie Howe

Former Premier League striker Dean Windass believes that the Crystal Palace job being like the one he excelled in at Bournemouth would suit Eddie Howe.

It’s approaching the one-year mark since the 43-year-old stepped down from his post on the south coast following their relegation to the Championship.

Should Palace hire Lampard?

Howe has been linked with several jobs during that period but could be back in the running to replace Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park after his recent proposed move to Celtic collapsed, with GiveMeSport reporting last month that he had held talks with the London outfit.

Howe looked on course to replace Neil Lennon at Parkhead for a few months having made a verbal agreement, but the deal eventually broke down, with the Scottish giants appointing Australian Ange Postecoglou instead.

Roy Hodgson's excellent Crystal Palace tenure appears to be drawing to a close but we bet you can't remember all of it! Test yourself below. Firstly, when was Hodgson appointed as Palace manager?

He’s also been linked with the vacant Everton position, although Nuno Espirito Santo remains the standout favourite as things stand.

But Windass told Football FanCast that the expectation levels at Crystal Palace would suit Howe far more than a move to Goodison Park, with Everton fans likely to demand European football:

“I think Eddie would suit Crystal Palace, not as much pressure.

“You keep Bournemouth in the Premier League, that’s your job, and it will be the same at Crystal Palace.

“Keep us in the Premier League, but there’s no pressure to get into the top-seven, so Eddie would be more of a fit at Palace than Everton.”
