Annoys me so much that Hull City and Watford are about ten streets ahead of us in being able to identify a player. I mean - if we are that useless then just buy their entire scouting teams and wait a couple of years. Iíd rather that than us be the solution to other teams who want rid of players. I could be doing a discredit. We may have moved on. I hope so but itís blind hope and that is not a strategy.
The funny thing is, we nicked the scout at Leicester, in Steve Walsh and tried to make him into a director of football.
Instead of jibbing him after that disasterous year we should have maybe just made him head scout or something.
We do everything wrong.
You're right though, makes you wonder why so many others scout and find these players.
Watford a prime example, 2 of our main first team came from them in Richarlison and DoucourŤ.
Richy was fannying about in the Brazilian leagues and Duke was playing in the French second division.
They are out there I just don't know why we can't scout them ourselves.
