Player Valuation: £70m
Good riddance to bad rubbish, please be gone when i get out of bed tomorrow
Surely nobody is giving him credit for Drogba! Pretty sure he was player of the season in France, and Chelsea had to break their transfer record on him!When he was a scout he would have identified many many players who more knowledgable people than him would have said no to. He’d be quick to point to his success stories like Mahrez and Kante, and going further back Drogba, but other more senior figures would have to have sanctioned these signings. This idea that he was some mastermind behind building a title winning side (purveyed by him) was a fallacy to begin with.
The DOF role is so much more than signing players. It’s about implementing a footballing strategy throughout the entire club, from the transfer policy, to the youth development, to the style of football, selecting the manager etc etc.
But why waste anymore time. Out of his depth and a charlatan.
...I think he has almost everything to answer for. It’s not just the inept transfers, disjointed squad and zero playing strategy, it’s brainless football decisions. Letting Connolly and Robinson go on loan to Championship clubs when we have no conventional back-up for an injury prone Leighton Baines. Letting Kieran Dowell go on loan when, before Walcott coming in he was our best option for a right sided midfielder in a team that lacked creativity and goals.Has a lot to answer for.
Can’t bare to watch him spunk more money up the wall on mediocre dross.
