Agreed. And the Iwobi / Delph signings are (for me) the 2 major failings of Brands DoF tenure. But if Allen signs, on a good deal, but turns out to be terrible in the PL, I’m quite happy to lay that at Brands door, rather than Carlo, as Brands is the DoF and signs the deals off.Im not bothered about who signs them, once there good, but I think if they are bad deals for the club then I think that deserves scrutiny and accountability.
For example many are lauding Brands for the Allan fee and Jamo loan. That is very short sighted to me. We shouldn’t be in a position of having to sign more central midfielders or a no 10 after investing 44 mill in Iwobi and Delph and taking on 200 k last summer. That is bad recruitment and bad deals, damages the club. I think it’s quite reasonable to analyse that form an opinion comment on that as ultimately it has an impact on the welfare of the club. You can’t have accountability unless someone is accountable for decisions, therefore I think we as fans have a responsibility to analyse and comment on issues such as that.
