Wasting 7 million quid on a non motivated striker, plus the wasted money on shite loan signings was our downfall.
I have no confidence in the recrutement this season either.
We're going to lose one or two quality players, what's the chances of duds coming in instead of them....history with our current set-up says that's very high.
Player spotting needs to be done purely by Bielsa and his own staff.
I just hope that was part of his agreement ironed out for him to stay.
No, it's not Bielsa's job to do the scouting.
That's what you have a DoF for.
The coach has enough to do with two matches a week without doing the scouting for girls gig.
The DoF and the coach decide what kind of players we need, and the DoF goes and finds players who fit the profile.
I'm not 100% sure on that, Keegan walked out because they wanted to take that part of the job off him. Doubt if Don Revie or that Whiskey nose cunt, or Clough never had any say in who to bring in either.
I know times are different now and they try to dress things up as (coach) rather than manager.
I find it hard to believe the likes of Guardiola, Klopp and others just bring the cones out, with a DOF just doing the recruitement.
I'd like to think Orta and Bielsa can choose between them, otherwise we're once again fucked.
I wonder who was behind the wanting James here transfer? I'd like to think that was Bielsa.
For 6 million quid a season I'd expect him to coach, recruit, and brush the fucking floor
Having trouble reading today, Doris?
This is how it works, at least in theory.
Owners, coach and DoF get together, identify where they need to sign players and what kind of budget they have to work with.
The coach is the one who has the most input in terms of players.
Once that is done, the DoF goes looking for players who fit the profile at a price that doesn't break the bank. He'll have a huge database covering dozens of leagues all over the world.
He comes back to the coach with a list of likely candidates and sits down with the coach, and they draw up a shortlist. The coach again has final say.
When they identify a player who fits the bill they go to the owner, who has the final say.
Then the owner and/or DoF get in touch with the agents...
Nobody gets signed against the coach's wishes.
If you have a sensible owner and a DoF who understands his job is NOT to do coach's job.
Sometimes you get fuckwit owners.
Sometimes the DoF gets ideas above his station.
