Why has the Director of Football failed?

Recommended Posts

Everyone is going around in circles here.

The question is, "Why has the DOF failed"?

The answer to that is because he hasn't done what the Chairman said he was brought in to do. The recruitment didn't continue without a manager in place. 

Whether we end up with a squad capable of staying in the league, for the purpose of this question, is irrelevant.

There has been no continuity. Quite clearly, and even some who claim he hasn't failed admit this, the input of the new manager seems paramount in distinguishing players to fill out our squad. IF this is the case, why are we spunking what is probably a significant salary on a jumped up scout?

ETA. Even that role is only assumed as no one has definitively proven Gus actually sourced the previous influx. In fact I was talking to someone today who praised Kearney for his contacts in the game. Who's to say he's not right in that assumption?

So.... according to some posters getting f**ked up the arse by Dunfermline, Edinburgh City, Albion Rovers and the mighty East Kilbride was all part of the plan to go as long as possible with a piss poor, short numbered squad!

well why the f**k didnt Gus & Gordon say that then? It all makes perfect sense now... try to force your manager out hoping he'll quit and you wont have to pay compo, then hire feckin no players for weeks! Presumably to help cover what you spaffed on the compo. Its feckin genius..!

cant think why none of our competitors havent done it too?

oh... and keep saying, and get the players to say to the media "we are so pleased we arent making 'Panic Signings'..... but.. err doesnt trying to get 5-6 players in a couple of days before your first league game look a lot like "PANIC STATIONS'..?

We had a league ready team in time for the first game of last season. OK the team was shite, but it was assembled in plenty of time by the then manager including a 75k transfer fee.

I would've preferred players in earlier as well. I'm sure everyone in a position to affect this at the club will agree with us on that.
Given that the English window shuts earlier we will always be likely to pick players up in August.

 

... and at least the World Cup isn't delaying our transfer spree this season!

Remaining players from last season should have been enough to get us through that league cup group. No matter how much your hatred for Gus & GLS wants that to be different, it won’t be.

Deflection!
Sheer deflection.

Not sure who you even think you are talking to.
Nobody listens to you other than to laugh or correct you.

Can’t help yourself but respond, pot kettle black continues. 😁

I would ask you what you’re on about with me deflecting but you’ve proven time & time again you can’t show it because it doesn’t exist. The spin king.

If you don’t think the team we put out was good enough to beat L2/ lowland league teams you’re making an assumption on the quality on the park. There’s a reason you’re getting little support on this.

You’d have signed players that JG didn’t want thinking they weren’t good enough? :blink:

Some BEK spin, oh how we haven’t missed it. 

Seems a fair few on here agree with me that our current team aren’t lower than L2 level :rolleyes:

None of that answers my question. We did hire Goodwin, do you think we should have forced him to sign players he didn’t think were good enough? 

Gus role (assuming it hasn’t changed since OK Q&A) is to source & scout potential signings that will then go through a process to determine their viability & value add to the squad. Not to go over the managers head in signing players.  

That process now seems to be producing fruit of the rumours are to be believed. Would it be good if it could have been done earlier? Yes. Was that possible? Unknown. 

Posted these to save you two posting the same shite again.... for a few minutes.

 

i hope this helps?  :)

We don't have a complete full time SPL squad at present (22/23 players) - that's my point.

That is irrelevant. We have more than enough players who should be good enough to beat those two teams.

To be fair, if we’d had a proven goal scorer we would have won both games.

If you thought you could sign better core players later in the window, would you not wait?

 

Hypothetical question! :rolleyes: 

As I've already said my opinion is that it's best to get the bulk of your squad in early and bedded in for the start of the league season and to fine tune the squad at the end of the window. Leaving the bulk of your recruitment to the end of the windows just delays the point in the season where the team is game ready with no guarantee of better quality players.

Makes sense in your hypothetical supposition, however the reality of the situation did not allow for that to happen, I have no wish to revisit all the reasons why, they have been well documented.  In my opinion JG has chosen a wise course (we may have to wait a while to see if that is actually the case) in going for better quality than has been usually brought in, this is not to say all will be successful, some will, some wont and some ..........well we will have to wait and see, but it should be interesting and exciting methinks.  COYS

This is the second summer in a row we've had a managerial change in the close season, my recollection is that GM was brought in to provide continuity in these circumstances.

Quote

Chairman Gordon Scott said the new structure was introduced because "we have learned lessons" in recent months.

My opinion remains that the "new structure" hasn't worked this summer for reasons that I've already given too many times. :zipit.

if  your names DIv, fair enough otherwise show the same respect I showed you, I put forward a point of view, your view seems to be if you keep repeating it often enough people will listen, but not if your talking crap.  AND who the feck made you the forum police.

Usual deflection. 

Anyhow, I knew you wouldn't choose the private message option as you actually revel in being a walloper. 

TBH if it wasn't for BEK no cnut would engage with you at all. :lol:

Why don't we ALL not answer Baz... he'll soon f**k off

Don’t think anyone is denying that would be best, just the reality of football it isn’t always possible to get good enough players in early.

Nope, the evidence is for all to see. Backed the chairman, backed Gus, patience to see who we get in this window... must be some sort of anti-Christ instead of a saviour :lol:
