I agree and wouldn’t want either back. I do however think that Sams emergency signings were genius, I’m sure he got a ‘good drink’ from the agents but they were exactly as we needed at the time and I doubt our current DOF could provide such instant and required players in the need arose

Dougie should meet him in a hotel this summer with a suitcase full of unmarked notes for his advice on who to sign.

Benteke was a Pardew signing and Sakho was a Parish signing. BFS was PVA, Schlupp and Luka - not bad but not who saved us.

I suggest it will also depend on who leaves over the summer too. (And the lack of clarity and decisions on this is scary!) but if we lose 5-8 players over the summer then we will need more than a few good replacements.
I would also say that the inevitable Zaha question will impact the transfer strategy too, when he goes we will have to invest properly or go down.

I hope behind the scenes that there is a strategy and plan for the next 5 years but it all feels very vague and drifting at the moment! Who are they players who is the manager etc, given we are now pretty much safe then surely this is the time to agreeing contracts and setting on a manager so that we can plan for a good summer. (Last thing we need is lots of players leaving and a some of chaos without a real plan and the excuses of difficult markets, couldn’t get the right players etc)
Not being funny why do you think it's vague and drifting? We need to get rid of most of those 13 odd players. Some we probably do want to keep I suspect one or both of Ward/Clyne, Cahill, Andros probably. Then I'm struggling.

I could see the club attempting to keep one of Benteke or Wickham. Bats is going to cost too much so unless we can loan him or get Chelsea's price right down he'll be off. However whether we should keep any of those three depends on our transfer budget and what wages they will accept.

The managerial position is clearly up for grabs as well. Question is who. The club clearly don't like to announce anything sometimes even after a deal has concluded. So I don't think we're drifting. The club however are not going to disadvantage themselves in the market by trying assuage fans getting their knickers in a twist.

That's been the point of having a DOF to increase our scouting networks. We at least have a scouting network now. We also now know the club has started scouting players on a multi year basis in the championship and below. Which we never did before.

Even the Sorloth deal he went for £24m odd rescuing a situation where we would have gotten a few million for him and got done by the first refusal clause the Turkish club had. So we at least made our money back on him.

Considering the only player we have actually spent real money on is Eze and we've gotten Vicente for nothing, Butland for peanuts Ferguson for potentially a lot less that the £12M odd we originally agreed and some bargains in Ayew, Cahill and Kouyate you can't complain too much in the money DF has wasted is in the region of a few million as opposed to what say Eddie Howe and his DOF spunked up the wall.

I imagine he’d do a lot more due diligence this time around. Doubt this guy would have the arrogance and general big swinging dickinshness that FDB has from all that he achieved as a player.

Thornton Heath for a couple of hours every fortnight. The rest of the time a lovely central London gaff near the theatres and museums and other cultural landmarks and a multi million pound contact. What’s not to love about that??

Leave the job spec writing to me Bubbs.
