Director of Football

I wonder who we could be getting for this position.  Steve Walsh has just been relieved off his duties at Everton ?

People are saying about Terranneo's input with the new manager but i think this is arguably a bigger job and the scouting department.

The whole rebuild is a massive job, & I have my doubts that it can be done properly before the new season starts.

I have a feeling we might take a punt on DM, with Terranneo staying on for the rest of 2018 to buy us more time.

He did so well there they have relieved him of his duties so what makes you think he'd be good for us?

When we appointed Terraneo on a six month deal, it said to me that we were waiting for somebody to become available. I heard Walsh might be getting the boot from Everton, and I think he's the kind of guy we need.

2 plus 2 doesn't equal 4 as far as we're concerned, but if he wants the job, he has a good track record, and we'd be foolish not to at least interview him.

I actually think Terraneo isn't looking for a new director, but is instead auditioning for the job himself. I could be wrong, and maybe he genuinely doesn't want another full time job at this stage of his career, but it was only 2 years ago he was happy to work full time at Fenerbache, so what's to say he doesn't want this full time?

I'm feeling very uncertain about our future at the moment. Terraneo is far from my first choice for director of football, and although I really like Dean Smith, Terraneo's seeming failure to find an alternative coach from abroad does seem to lack imagination.

I guess we will see in the summer what his transfer advice is like (or if it is listened to and used). He certainly failed at Fener.
