Not that I am any great fan of Elstone and Kenwright but since this 'power shift' we've had four managers in 18 months, wasted £150m, been on the fringes of the bottom three, assembled the most disjointed squad for years and just appointed the most underwhelming manager in living memory.
Power shift is now isn’t it?
Anyway, the underlying point needs to be that there is unity of thought / purpose.
Think the Sigurdsson episode (and Schneiderlin before that) was down to old ways of working where every pound really mattered.
Paying an extra couple of £m for Sigurdsson at the start of the saga would have left weeks to sort everything else out etc; and that’s just one minor thing.
You can’t have confusion at the top.
