Wish we'd have cleared out 15 players over the last 2 years lol
If the club decide not to appoint a director of football, I don’t think it will be for any of those reasons.Three things stop it from happening.
Woodward's ego won't allow someone to take control.
Glazer's don't care enough to spot that Woodward isn't up to that job.
Money appointing a director of football and the other people that come with that model costs money these people aren't cheap but in theory if you have good structure you don't need a stupidly expensive coach and they should generate value by being smarter in the transfer market.
How can it not be down to those 3 things?If the club decide not to appoint a director of football, I don’t think it will be for any of those reasons.
I think selling the club to potential players is one of the easiest things Rio or any sporting director would have to face. We are still the biggest club in the world even though our performances have dropped off. Obviously from the outside you could say ‘oh wouldn’t they prefer to go to City’ but for me I think we are still very much a draw for top bracket players.just read
Phelan Technical director
Rio Sporting director
this is a worry, but i wouldn't write it off just because of no experience.
I guess the most important part is they all work together.
In Rio's favour, he's well liked, loves the club and could probably sell it quite well to potential players.
