There is nothing Dave can't do, he's an expert at everything. See's the whole of the moon, apparently. And definitely, definitely isn't a self-parodying middle aged man who gets really cross on the internet, with made up sources about the Niasse transfer.
One thing that he seems to forget is the reason we now have a DoF is because his mate 'the scout' and the rest of the recruitment dept have done such a pathetic and shocking job over the last few years.
Considering Silva said he was waiting on Brands bringing him in 4/5 in the last 2 weeks of the summer window, I would say Silva had no influence whatsoever.How many of the signings Everton have made under Brands do you think are down to him? For me it is like Kean and Gbamin that is it. All the other signings were by the manager, you do not need a director of football to be signing Barcelona, Arsenal and Brazilian international players.
You seem to have this idea that all these signings were anything but players Silva wanted. Silva got sacked after like ten games into the season, you can not sell the concept to a manager in that position that Everton should be buying Jesus for 25 million and 3 unproven young players and thats the summer spend. As long as the manager has a say on transfers and they are always going too. They will want proven Barcelona, Arsenal and Brazilian international players, when they are 10 games away from being sacked,
This is going to be the same under Carlo, I'm sure Carlo does not want Everton to buy Jesus and 4 unproven players in the summer. Everton are not telling Carlo in the summer these are the 5 young players you get, get on with it lid. What players Brands recommends does not matter Everton have not been signing these players.
