its becoming evident that we bring out this story whenever the club messes out. There's no real taste for the top dogs to have control over things challenged. When the budget has ended, Woodward just love to go for 2-3 unrealistic targets only to say that it isn't the club's fault if these players didn't want to come, their club refuse to sell. That won't happen if a decent DOF is signed.I’m not one to usually say this, but FFS this has to be a joke. I was all for the careful and measured approach to finding someone after Jose was sacked, but then we go the entire summer without getting someone in, and now as soon as the transfer window closes these stories come out again. It’s an absolute joke.
The guy who took over from Gazidis shows what a good transfer window you can have without spending world record fees on every player.
In all reality, it does make sense. No point recruiting from April to August (end window) as too little time to understand workings of squad and start planning scouting networks etc. Recruiting now gives us a chance to influence Jan, but more essentially next summer.Shameless...

So Woody will still negotiate the transfers. Essentially this would just feck things up even more as now Ole would be out of the loop so that Woodward and the Yes Man can feck things up even more.No offer has been made and it is thought the role would not involve negotiating with or signing transfer targets.
I don't think ole would be out of the loop completely. Also why I am no big fan of Woodward I cannot see the wisdom behind giving so much power to a guy who wouldn't consider talent outside the local pool either. I mean was it really wise spending 80m on the new Steve Brucey considering that we were working on a limited budget? I don't think maguire is worth starting the season with a shit midfield and no RWSo Woody will still negotiate the transfers.
