    If this isn't meant to be long term, then I expect some serious business this summer, with this guy leading recruitment.

    'initially across the summer'?!? What?
    And he's really gonna drop his best contacts/propects to us in a short term deal? He blows his wad with us, deosn't work out for him here and he'll have nothing to sell himself with to future prospective employers.

    Holy * we’re a bunch of moaning *. Welcome Nicky and good luck. Easily better than Lawwell as DOF.

    He's not taking up the role as Director of Football, though. Not according to that statement.

    Seems like he's helping out the club with his contacts for a couple of months then we'll see what happens.
