Ideal situation?

Ole moves upstairs as dof and poch comes in during the summer.

I like the new direction on transfers but a new manager could spell another summer of uncertainty and missed opportunities.

I think we need to stick with the plan as it's very unlikely poch will come in and we will keep ole + his targets which im happy with at this point.

Would be happy to give ole another season if we get all our targets and maybe got porch the year after. I'm just concerned about losing poch to someone like city and being left in the wilderness again.

What we've lacked over the last 7 years is people with specialist skills fulfilling specialist roles. An organisation that is full of industry experts with the power to drive decision making within their areas of competence might be forgiven for identifying outstanding raw materials in an inexperienced individual and believing he or she would add something valuable to an already well oiled machine. But that's not us. We have a lack of expertise and leadership in our organisation. So we need to appoint an experienced football industry figure who can provide the leadership that ensures we have specialists where we need them, and all pulling in the same direction.

Solskjaer has far more credible qualifications to be our coach than to be our DoF.

Ole isn’t good enough or experienced to go upstairs

People often mock me but when I hear them talk about Ole being DOF I realise even more they are the dumb ones.

Ole as DoF? No no no. Why do fans keep saying this?

Our current plan isn't unique to Ole. Many other teams and coaches have similar strategies.

Well a DoF job depends on the club's needs etc. VDS had no prior experience. I've never called you dumb so don't take out your pent up anger on me.

Some good points raised above. I do think though that right now we need a long term vision and some consistency. I can see from the transfer business that we do seem to be making the right moves towards what is needed. However a new manager will create more complexity and change at a time where we seem to be moving in the right direction as far as recruitment.

If we get posh and stick to our current targets I would be happy, but will be want them? There's a lot we don't know and it stinks again of putting all our eggs in one basket I.e. the manager

VDS isnt a DOF

Our current strategy is prioritising British players with their ridiculous fees. I think this has to stop.

We spent £80m on a defender with no pace. Not sure that was a good long term signing, as it limits how we can play.
