Jesus Christ, it's started already and he's not even here yet!Gillardo in the dugout, Mitchell rubbing the football side from a director of football roll, Rae to snap a few legs of under performing players and free wanks at the ticket office! This is the revolution we’ve been waited for

The fans wanted rid of Wilson in exactly the same way as they wanted shot of Mark Allen. Beale seen an opportunity to have free reign and the board bought his story.It’s beyond belief that we didn’t replace Wilson in the summer yet other clubs have people ready to replace straight away.
So, he’s the Chief Scout basically. My understanding is that recruitment is only one aspect of a DOF’s job - because, if it’s not, there really is no need for the position to exist as such.They don't have anyone with that title, no.
Mark Lawwell is Head of First Team Scouting and Recruitment. Same position he held at CFG for ten years.
He should manage all day to football operations, like the medical staff and treatment of injured players, ie we need to send him to a specialist, appointment of coaching and support staff, salary negotiations and contract extensions, scouting and player acquisition, keeping tabs on the players on loan, mainly his job is to free the manager to concentrate on the first team.So, he’s the Chief Scout basically.

By all means have some people on the board who have sound football knowledge as opposed to it being populated by only those with a business background and, by all means, make sure we have a top man at the helm of our scouting operation, but is there really a need to make an appointment which in many cases appears to be a case of clubs jumping on the current ‘ sexy fashion must-have’ bandwagon?
