I dream of us preparing for a transfer window months in advance, rather than minutes before the deadline.

Steve Walsh has prepared his list of targets for the coming window too:

Jamie Vardy
Marc Albrighton
Robert Huth
Kevin Nolan
Daniel Drinkwater
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Hopefully, that will mean that we will now get a clearer picture of what he intends to do and probably, as a result what the plans are for the club.

Hope you’re not expecting that anytime soon ? Doubt he’s even coming.

So let's fuck around with this until mid-July at which point it becomes absolutely clear he's not coming. We should also not proceed with a managerial appointment until the DoF is in place. It's much more entertaining when the new guys have about two weeks to figure out what the squad needs and make the deals. Remember that the window closes mid-August this year.

Hopefully get this sorted soon and not let it drag out into another saga.

The insuation here is that it would take something special to tempt him away, so at least this will encourage Moshiri to show his ambition by at least binning Allardyce

Refusing to get excited at his arrival or pissed off when he turns us down.

I don't think that's the case. A DoF should be directly involved in the targeting and hiring of a manager. So if he is joining, I'd expect him to do so before we get a new manager, or at least announced a new manager.

Whatever happens, I agree we can’t do the will he/won’t he dance for long.

1. This is the most important role at the club this summer and one that requires planning. We should have had a new director in place already, to be honest.

2. We have a bad habit of spending a long time pursuing targets only to not get the deal over the line, leaving us in a position where we have to make a rash decision (or where we do absolutely nothing at all). Look at the state we’re in now to see how well this has worked out.

If we let this drag out, there’s a serious possibility that Walsh/Allardyce end up running our summer business. Which, no thanks.

I think we're probably getting him, and it's been agreed, but he seems like quite a classy fella who isn't going to say anything about leaving on the day they clinch the title.

The DoF and new manager have to be a pair that mesh/fit together.  Otherwise, you are setting up both to fail and wasting more time and money.

I suspect this is all to do with the rumoured deal with Raiola, he is his agent and I expect bigger things than this are happening behind the scenes. Im expecting Moshiri to set up some alliance with him to oversea our summer recruitment plan and as part of that Brands will be pivotal. I wouldnt be surprised if its all done already
