Leaving Walsh's contributions, whatever they are, out of it... it was always a bit weird that we appointed someone for this role after picking a manager. What a missed opportunity this was.
Having a director of football is good. Or it should be.
But having an unclear power structure is bad. Like spending hundreds of millions of pounds on players that aren't good enough for any of the teams you're chasing bad.
I still think the way forward is to hit the reset button, clear everyone out, and do it the right way.
