Sorry to keep harping on about this everybody, but, is this the way that our board think they are going to take us to the next level? They had an entire window where they had plenty of chances to bring in players that would have made a difference but they thought to play it safe because we had a few good results and didn't invest in new players. We've now got a few injuries (an issue which should have been addressed in the window), a manager who clearly sounds unhappy due to lack of investment, they've not taken us to the next level despite the fact that we sell more season tickets than moist other clubs and the solution is to panic and bring in ageing free players. Again, at the sound of repeating myself, we should have paid what clubs were asking for instead of enquiring after a player, finding out its more than we are willing to spend and then moving on to the next and so on and so on until we end up with a player that costs very little and doesn't offer any improvement on the current playing staff. Just look at the Man Utd's, Arsenal, Chelsea etc who invest in 1 or 2 quality players per window and gradually build. We need to start by employing a director of football who can take charge of footballing matters.

Be patient. DGS will take us to the next level. The problem is, it's the one below our current level.

Hi Phil

I think quite a few of us have been banging on about a DOF for quite a while as its clear Sullivan is as much use as a Chocolate Teapot in the window.

The problem I see is he still thinks he is negotiating selling bulk top shelf mags to the local newsagent and does not understand that clubs can sell else where if not to WH, so when a player is said to be worth £10m no point going in at £9.99p to start the bidding, its not an Egyptian Suk!

Also I Honesty do not think he likes to trust anyone with any financial outlay, such as transfers as his controlled business mind would be " I could have done better" . but that the problem, why we never get much done because his always after a bargain, This will not change until he goes and unfortunately the way it is. even if he did appoint a DOF I guarantee he would still want to control everything .

Unfortunately mate until he sells or pops his clogs what ever comes first were stuck with all this crap, As he seems like a pigheaded, I know best kind of person, even the planned protests will only make him dig his heels in deeper I feel, he will go when his ready to go and not before I fear.
