Can’t blame him though can you, clearly wants to know if they or going to sack Allardyce or not, if not then clearly he won’t come to us.
We may as well forget the director of football role if that's how we're going to continue to do things. If we're really invested in him, Brands needs to have a say in who manages the club next.
It's a policy that works though.
I'm happy with him using us as a stepping stone for good young talent.
Does it really work, though?
It's certainly gone well for Wolves but they've gotten CL quality youngsters in the Championship so no real surprise there. Mendes tried a lot of the same things at Valencia (same manager, even) and failed horribly. Valencia have only turned it around since hiring Marcelino (great manager who doesn't get enough attention) and cooling off on signing so many Mendes clients.
It's good to have good relationships with powerful agents but a dangerous game funneling most of your business through one.
