He is responsible for a lot of the deadwood though
Iwobi, Bernard, Gomes, Kean, Delph, were all his signings. Bad luck on Gbamin though.
Jury is still out on him for sure but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for the next few years. He does need to step up though.
...we've only really got our act together in the last year really - since getting Ancelotti in I'd say.
Of course I'm not 100% happy with what he's (apparently - none of us really know) done, but I was impressed when we got him, he seems settled and respected at the club and as you say - the chopping and changing all the time helps no-one, so...overall I'm very happy to give him more time to prove that he can REALLY push us forwards.
Still some reservations about him (mostly Iwobi) and whether the Ancelotti appointment undermines whatever strategy we had, but I wouldn't swap our owner, CEO or manager with anyone else in world football and happy to continue with a highly respected DoF who may still turn out to be one of the best appointments we make.
I'd like more Branthwaite, Godfrey, Kean, Nkounkou signings and also enough time to see that transfer strategy pay off.
And while the likes of Tosun, Besic, Walcott and Bolasie are still on our books it's hard to judge him too much. This summer surely the dead wood will be clear and we'll start seeing a Brands/Carlo SQUAD.
