It appears our long-term, strategic DoF is pissing off to West Brom after seven months.

Interested to hear Russ's take on this - strategically speaking.

How are we doing on finding the next portuguese speaking manager? Deadline looming

We've appointed former FA talent ID Manager Daniel Dodds as head of academy recruitment instead.

We've apparently brought in a new Head Scout, as well. Which is nice. 
Meet the New c*nts.

Same as the Old c*nts.

A scout called Hunt. How appropriate.
Boy am I going to look even more stupid than usual when we romp to a 3-0 win.

Job titles could mean anything really but it's interesting to be replacing a Technical Director with a Head Scout. Did the Technical Director leave so quickly because it became apparent that the model was proving to be more of a traditional Scout than a strategic role?

It's also strange because we've already got a head scout. Jorge Mendes. He's excellent at scouting his own players.

I am pretty sure I read somewhere that Hunt is not a replacement for Dowling.

Scouting is very important at a club and serves many functions (opposition, match). Clearly not the same job function.

What appointing a Head Scout at this point highlights is how undeveloped the actual club structure is. As much as losing the director of football, or whatever, does. At least with this level of clear evidence Russ can put his ill formed optimism to be. Our success rests on the shoulders of Kranky, Mendes, and whoever Marinakis feels like cancelling their olympiakos contact (before the EFL clamp down on it).

My man crush grows, if he could get sent off a couple of times for doing something brave but stupid and also end up in the papers for drunken antics I'd be at risk of a semi.
