Looks like we might be in the market for a new DoF after what Iíve heard.

Kenwright wants him out.

Who's actually making decisions @Django ?

You should just look at the NFLs front office and coaching systems.

You have a GM who reports to the owner, who's job it is to organise the Head Coach and Head of Recruitment.  The 3 work as a team to outline the philsophy and style that is being aimed for.  The HC tries to do this with the current playing staff, whilst highlighting where improvements/replacements are needed.  The HoR takes this information and finds potential players to fit these roles.  Once identified, approval its over to the GM to get shit done.

Playing devils advocate, we don't know for certain who targeted which players.

Koeman:
Williams
Schneiderlin
Sigurdsson
Martina
Steklenberg
Klaassen (?)

Walsh:
Gueye
Sandro
Lookman
Tosun

Allardyce:
Walcott
Mangala

Bill:
Rooney

The you've got:
Pickford
Keane
Vlasic (Only after he played against us)
And all the kids signed(Inc DCL)

You've potentially got 2 managers buying *their* players with *their* system in mind, and then glorified scout Walsh bringing in potential who neither manager really wanted to gamble on.

The players that *look* like Walsh signings have either done well for us, or despite being under utilised have either gone to or were wanted by better teams than us this year.  Allardyce's comments before Tosun arrived about him not being sure about him sort of set up the current situation - it does SA no good if a player he didnt really want comes in and tears the league up as it questions his judgement.

Walsh probably is a decent scout, but that doesnt justify his role at Everton.  He doesnt come across as someone you'd look to as an authorititive figure, and if he's getting over-ruled or even walked over by whoever our *manager* is then he needs to be shown the door.

I wouldn't be so sure. People were saying Jags was done 2 years ago, now he's our best defender.

Those two statements arent mutually exclusive, sadly.
