This has got be to an early April Fools gag, surely? I mean, how can a club of our stature and ambition appoint two such low profile and negligible track record candidates for what is such an important job at the cluib. We'll all be laughing about this later on. One way or another.
This is my thinking, this is worse than not having appointed a director of football.
We have gone from being linked to all the serious dofs around Europe, to ending up putting Darren fletcher in place.
Honestly, what expertise or experience does fletcher have for the role.
None. What about his network of contacts across Europe and the world? Non existent id imagine.
Its complete window dressing, oh the fans are crawling for a dof, fine, make up the title, and give it to an old boy who isn't suited for the position, and it will appease the fans, see we now have a dof like all the cool clubs, and its an old fan favourite. Even better.
Maybe I'm being ultra cynical, but this is crazy, but then its united, so they aren't concerned about the best way of doing things, best to get the cheaper easier option, and if keeps the fans appeased, even better.
And fletcher will never speak out against Ed or the board about how the club are restricting his role, compared to if they had actually recruited a dof.
