I cannot answer a question that is flawed to begin with. Same with your question "How long until Woodward should step away fully from the footballing side". Its a flawed question to begin with because the CEO will always have the final responsibility and say over everything in the company. That is the essence of being the CEO. That will always include the "footballing side". Then of course I am of the opinion that Woodward´s influence over the footballing side if one by that means the day-to-day business and transfer activities for example; is so much less than people think. But thats why I did not even reply to that part of your badly phrased question to begin with. And not everything on here is opinions. There are facts and arguments as well. If you learn to separate those three basic things you will do better here with your posts in the future.
