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.
