I know its easy to bash someone when they clearly failed, like Walsh did in not getting a Lukaku replacement, but when you break it down he also did some good stuff and did a lot of the things Brands has discussed. He invested massively in youth getting Lookman, Vlasic, Sandro, Bowler, Donkor, Onyekuru these were some of the most sought after kids around and we got them. Yes the Lukaku thing effectively cost us our season and for that alone he should've gone immediately, but when you look at that list he also contributed a lot and it wasnt his fault that managers didnt chose to play them.

Yes.

But it’s his presence, or lack of that’s apparent.

He clearly didn’t have the clout or willingness to impose on the managers what the club’s wishes were etc.

A DoF is also a key person for expressing what the club wants to do from a footballing angle and you rarely heard anything from him.

I know they’re only words but Brands is immediately setting his stall out re managers and that we need to compete. It’s laying down the marker everyone else in the hierarchy.

Doesn’t seem like he (Walsh) progressed from being a scout.

Chief scout would have been a decent job for him

Speaks well doesn't he, comes across with an air of authority about him, you can tell he gets things done. Nice to hear him mention long term plans as well, that's something Silva needs to get on board with if he comes, he can't just keep doing short term jobs, which probably works in our favour, sooner rather than later Silva's going to have to prove that he can build a team and put together 2-3 decent seasons.

The only slight concern is that jacket looks like it might just be a bawhair too small but we can live with that. :)

I feel a bit sorry for Walsh. Think every other cunt at the club wanted to do a bit of his job and the thing he was most guilty of was being a bit weak. The board have to take a lot of the blame too for allowing it to happen

Silva hasn't been touched by the 'Ball' yet. When he does nothing will be the same. If he's good enough I think he'll stay around, especially if he gets the backing and crowd support.

No left back replacement all season? No striker replacement? Bidding big money for Moussa Sissokho?

He got a big pay day, and a right cushy number here and performed lamentably. Sod him.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

I might be completely wrong but I hold koeman responsible. I think he ended up with a small shortlist of strikers none of which proved possible. Obviously I donít feel sorry for him in real terms. Like you say he wonít starve cos we sacked him. Just donít think we gave him the best opportunity to succeed

He had to be stronger, he was too weak
Simply simply lovely

I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
