Ha, well...what does Steve Walsh do again?
Allardyce himself seems like a Walsh pick so hopefully they're on the same page. I'd imagine if things don't work out under Allardyce then Walsh will be out the door too.
Sounds like the Tosun situation is very similar to Koeman with Bolasie and Sigurdsson (and I think Williams to?), where the manager can request his own targets to the DoF based on his previous jobs scouting/recruitment. Which as we know didn’t turn out particularly fruitful last time we worked that way.
Also not sure Walsh had any say who came in, Paul Joyce said the managerial search was conducted by Moshiri, Harris and Ryazantsev.
