Now I'm no expert but for me, a DoF should be working with the hierarchy to agree a strategy and playing style for the club (not just the first team).

They create a recruitment plan around these two and install scouts across the world to establish lists of appropriate signings.

They look at the squad, its strengths and weaknesses and identify players that don't fit the strategy and playing style. They move players on and bring in new players to fit.

They then identify a manager to coach the squad and pick a team that fits the squad and playing style.

They represent the continuity across these different areas and don't operate as a single point of failure.

A manager can't do all of this and coach the first team at the same time. A DoF is such an important role to get right.

And we've got it badly wrong.
