    We donīt need a DOF

    We have a manager and a CEO - that should be enough, especially now. Never really understood why a club need a DOF and now, more than ever, it`s an unnecessary luxury that a club in our position doesnīt need. Does anyone know how long his contract is and when can it be terminated? Would also wanīt to know what he has been doing at QPR.

    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.

    That’s my view Hits he who pays most eats at the top table

    How does it work if he works for say us and Brentford we’re 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 ?

    When he was appointed the club made it clear he was freelance.

    So if he’s freelance how does he decide what players he pushes in or direction and what he pushes in other clubs. Don’t feel comfortable with this
