Think he should have this summer, he has the right ideas and gone about doing the leg work to execute them so now his structure is complete then he can be fairly assessed. Even if we are taken over I want to see improvements in recruitment where vision takes precedence over big names, I want to see our club look at a player in Argentina and have the imagination of what such a player, after the right support and time to settle, can do in our midfield. We need more Caicedos and less Sanchos.
If Ten Hag and Murtough can do their homework then tell us, 'we genuinely believe that Hoiglund will be a superstar in two years, we have scouted him and trust his techniques and striker instinct so we are taking him over Kane', I would support them the same way I supported Van Gaal when he signed Martial out of the blue. That it eventually didn't work isn't the issue the issue was that there was a genuine thinking process on the signing and its been apparent why we shelled out the big money for him, even if he turned out to be lazy and unambitious before injuries finished him off.
Another thing is that he needs to be firm with his manager, tell him what is doable and what's impossible financially and technically. For example, we don't have any need to spend a limited budget on players like Frimpong before bringing in a striker, CM and GK. Tell ETH the consequences of blowing all your budget on favorites like Timber when the likes of Lindelof are still serviceable. Be firm and remind of an expensive mistake he dragged us into that could take us years to rectify.
