What should we do? (RESET 29 SEPTEMBER, AFTER LIMASSOL GAME)

Fire him now before our season goes tits up
Give him till Christmas.. If performances and results aren't where they should be for what he's spent, he's out
Let's just see how things are at the end of the season
The season has barely begun, he's a great manager and we should get 100% behind him
Ohhh Davey Moyes, Davey Davey Davey Moyes...
Fuck off with your polls, you cunt

What's wrong with that?

So we pay him £130k a week to do what? Take the players for training and pick from players he's had chosen for him?

Top and bottom of it is we don't have that target man until January at least so he's going to either have to trust DCL or Sandro, or swallow his pride and give Niasse a shot.


Or switch the team and tactics to suit the players we do have.
Unsworth has a 100% League record at home
Norwich 3-0 15th May 2016
Watford 3-2 5th Nov 2017
West Ham 4-0 29th Nov 2017
To Be Continued.....

That's usually how it works with a director of football

Well it's a shit system, as you can see from where we're at now.
The manager should be responsible for the signings.
What qualifies Walsh to sign players for us?

Did he? What exactly did he do @ Leicester? Because he never discovered any of the players they signed like Kante or Mahrez, he just oversaw the negotiations
So because he did that he then gets a job at Everton where he identifies players and signs them?
It's an absolute joke, he's equally to blame with Koeman

He didn't discover Kante or Mahrez, who arguably with Vardy were the reason they won the league.

So what qualifies him to pick the players we're gonna sign?

He still had a major part to play in building that side.

[quote Walsh asked an agent based in Paris to bring Kante over to England in early August and, for three days, they had him switch off his phone. He wasn't allowed to turn it on again until he had put pen to paper on a contract at Leicester's Belvoir Drive training ground. "We had to almost kidnap him," Walsh told Jonathan Northcroft of the Sunday Times. "I had friends in France bring him over. His primary agent didn't even know he was there."

Ranieri had been unable to persuade Esteban Cambiasso to sign a new contract, and as he revealed in a recent appearance on Sky Sports, Walsh presented him with two potential replacements: Kante or Jordy Clasie, then on the brink of leaving Feyenoord. While he plumped for Kante, he was unsure about how to fit him into the team.

In his first appearances in Leicester blue, Kante found himself being used as a wide midfielder, a position he had last occupied during his final season at Suresnes. But after testing him out in central midfield, Ranieri came to his senses and just as at Suresnes, Boulogne and Caen, once he got into the team, there was no shifting him.

By the time of Manchester United's visit in late November 2015, Ranieri had discovered the team that would win the title, Kante anchoring the midfield alongside Danny Drinkwater. As Walsh was fond of quipping, "We always play three in midfieldóDrinkwater in the middle, and Kante either side."[/quote]

So he was the liaison between the scouting network and the management @ Leicester? And?

Like I said before he didn't discover Kante, Kante was on his way to Marseille but they could only offer £5m so Leicester offered £8m

So my question still stands - what qualifies him to make our signings?

I'm not seeing it tbh
He's just playing a game of footie manager with real money & riding the life out of the fact that Leicester won the league while he was a scout there

We're doomed to fail while this guy is taking over transfers

It's fucking depressing watching one person's almost certain personality disorder playing out on the forum day after day after fucking day.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

That's what he does here.
The thing that qualifies him for signing players is Moshiri
