    Furthermore we've been down the road of having a CEO with no one of football experience to work alongside him and we all know that ended disastrously, so the DOF was appointed because the club learnt from that lesson.
    There's nothing wrong with having a DOF but there was when Les was appoint he way out of his depth , the first two years were prety woeful but I'll credit him he's got to grips with the job I,know I'll get stick for saying our recruitment improved when Ollie joined along with Penrice , I think only then he listened and took advice and works closer with his staff

    If two clubs are in for the same player and one offers 15% commission and the other club offers 22.5% who will look after? As a freelance his loyalty is to himself.

    Thats my view Hits he who pays most eats at the top table

    How does it work if he works for say us and Brentford were both after a CB and same player identified fits both clubs criteria. Surely a conflict of interest

    Probably right doggs. He probably does get a wage just not as much if solely employed by the club.

    What's wrong with freelance means he's not on a weekly wage gets paid on results surely the clubs quids in rather having him on the books , am I right or wrong ?

    So if hes freelance how does he decide what players he pushes in or direction and what he pushes in other clubs. Dont feel comfortable with this

    So our chief scout is freelance and is not solely contracted to our club. What brains decided that, that was a good idea. Due to our poor financial situation, it is important to cut unnecessary expenditure. Think it's safe to say that the freelancer and his army of scouts who have manage 1 free transfer in two transfer windows is an unnecessary expense on the clubs finances. Then, we have dof grin, what purpose does this smiling joker serve. Gets the best part of a quarter of a million pounds per year to hire and fire his mates. Again another expense that this club does not need. Then we have Andy Sinton. A lovely fella but seriously, apart from shaking hands with the fans and posing for photos, is his wage warrented. Start cutting the off the pitch groupie gang before you start cutting the team and not replacing them.
