    Who the * is Howe coming from little Bournemouth to tell us who our DOF should be after already deciding upon Fergal Harkin according to reports?

    * off to Newcastle to work under that trumpet Mike Ashley if you want

    Then we're gonna lose Karamoko in that scenario, we need a new manager in now to try and convince him to stay

    Yes, blame Howe, not the board that failed to appoint a director of football before approaching him.

    Howe's suggestion is as good as any because clearly the board has no idea what it is doing.

    If you can believe the net, Roy Hodgson makes 4.5 at Palace & Steve Bruce makes 2.75 at Newcastle. Apparently Howe was making 3 at Bournemouth ! Rodgers doubled his salary moving to Leicester. I believe his salary & budget would both be significantly larger should he hold out for the Premier League. I've said all along that Howe would be crazy to commit to any club prior to the Summer when managerial openings tend to arise.

    * it, if he comes he comes, if he doesn't he doesn't.

    Stop * about celtic get a serious appointment made for DoF, set out a plan, short term to be winning the league back immediately, medium and long term being on setting a scouting network suited to a club our size should be having and not just relying and loans from down south and the bridge we burnt with PSG over Weah.

    Get that all in place first and set up correctly and I'd be confident Ronnie could come back and win the league

    Anything that can go wrong does go wrong these days. We are a circus, and nothing will change until the clowns in charge leave.

    I just hope we find out what his plan is before the end of next week, don't want this dragging out til the end of the season.

    My guess is we probably agreed most * with Howe, then he dropped wanting his buddy from Bournemouth to be our DOF on us, I don't see us denying him the chance to bring in his own back-room team, we've been a circus but surely we wouldn't force Kennedy/Strachan on him?

    If it is a choice between Harkin as director of football or Howe as manager, I would take Howe every day of the week.

    Harkin is most likely only in the frame because he golfs with Desmond.

    Totally * again at boardroom level why would we be chasing a manager before appointing a DoF we've allowed ourselves to be put in this totally needless position. Also from reading the comments it sounds like yet again we're looking to force a backroom staff upon him which I fail to see any logic in regardless of how good a coach Kennedy is meant to be

    It’s backwards in general.

    But Harkin is Desmond’s golf buddy works with Lawwell junior. He’s only a loan manager at City, which is a liaison role so I’d be worried either way about the DOF role.

    Tognozzi was blatantly the best choice for the DOF role, did he not say he was interested in it too?

    Getting Tognozzi in a week or two ago, then appointing Howe would have been fantastic.

    Those comments by his agent could have been released a week ago. The fact they have been released now could mean its part of negotiation tactic.
