Sky Bet are reporting that United, Chelsea and Arsenal are all trying to get RB Leipzig's Paul Mitchell to become sporting director. I have no idea if this is a good thing or not but the fact Chelsea and Arsenal are looking at him tells me he must be half decent.

Will be very interesting if we did get a director in this summer, would hopefully put ed woodward on the back seat when it comes to decision making on the footballing side.

Sadly as much as I think we need someone with specific footballing nous to come in and make those footballing decisions. I don't see it working out as we would hope. I cannot see Ed Woodward bringing in someone to take control and power away from him. He seems to have an ego that could rival Pogba's. Yet I fail to see what he has done to deserve that inflated self worth.

Some say he does a great job on the commercial side, and for a time I believed this to. Yet how hard can it be to get people to sign up to one of the largest and well known brands in the world, a brand with billions of fans and potential customers for sponsors.

Surely a competent person could have secured the deals Ed Woodward has. He isn't a revolutionary, he doesn't do anything new of inventive. He just does his job to a good enough level.

However, he also gets too involved in the footballing side. Signing players for inflated fees on inflated wages while paying huge agents fees because the player will help him sign more commercial deals.

Ed002 has suggested that Ole won't have much impact on who the club signs, which asks the question of who is making these decisions. There is only one obvious answer, step forward Ed Woodward.

Do I believe that egomaniac such as Ed Woodward truly wants to hire someone to take that control away from him?

Of course not, he wants a buffer, someone to do the mundane tasks while he whields the power. Then when it goes wrong he has someone to take the blame.

Things won't seriously improve until Ed leaves. WOODWARD OUT.

{Ed002's Note - None of you seem to understand the structure of the club and who makes these decisions.}

The scouts identify the players and then they show it to the manager and then the manager has a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice for each position and then it is Ed woodward who will go and close the deal.

I hope i am a tiny bit right on this but i don't think Ed Woodward goes out and chooses players. There is a reason there is a scouting system. in the club such as Marc Bout and his buddies.

{Ed0333's Note - No Ed Woodward just goes and messes up the transfernegotiations you have a scouting department to identify players.

I am sure he buys players in the interest of the club or is he still fixiated with buying big names?

Hi Ed002, hope you are well. Could you give us a brief description of the structure of our club at the moment and how a DOF would fit in if you have time, apologies if you’ve been over it before, I think we are all a little guilty of not fully understanding this at our club. Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - There will then just be more people the fans who know zip about the club or the people to trash. It is quite frankly laughable.}

No worries Ed, I understand. Thanks anyway.
