Something about which we’ve heard very little is who exactly is in line to replace Les Reed at the club. It’s good their taking their time to ensure they are making the right decision. Just curious as to how long a decision will take to be made, and who will fill the role. This is arguably the most important signing the club will make for the next few years and we must get it right.

If they are looking to fill the role left by Les Reed I agree and I felt that it would be a gamble employing a new head coach without having that role filled if the club was to maintain the same structure behind the scenes.

But when we were being linked with Hassenhutl I think it was the Telegraph who reported that the board were not looking to bring someone in with the same role as Les Reed as it felt he was spread too thin. I presume that with Ross Wilson and our new Head Coach, who has an eye for talent and a clear mind of the type of player he wishes to recruit, working together a DOF may not be necessary.

Seen Fournier of Nice start to be banded about a bit. Though our last signing from Nice didn’t turn out to be an overwhelming success. we shall see.

I believe the Fournier rumour wa rubbishd earlier today by Adam Leitch. I have no idea what it’s like behind the scenes of a premier league club, but if we weren’t to sign a director of football I would worry that we are spreading ourselvelves a little thin in the area of recruitment.

Although on the Fournier rumour I believe it would be a very welcome addition, with his extensive knowledge of the French game and Ralph’s knowledge of the game in Germany we’d be well placed to scoop up promising young talent from two nations that are arguably producing the best young players in the world at the minute.
