Being reported Marcel very likely to get the sack after the Board meeting.

Would prefer to go back to no DOF. Let the manager and scouts choose the players and the board do the business side of things.

Would much rather see Benitez go.

Not for me we need to give Rafa ample time to change this around.

Brands going is a no brainier. What had he achieved to merit a new long term contract? Where are the hidden gems that his far reaching scouting network unearthed? Where is the philosophy, the passion, the blueprint for success? Get him gone. If he had any pride he’d walk.
Benitez is trickier. He should never have been hired, the toxic atmosphere was inevitable. Now we have him, how long do we keep making excuses for him? The vibe around the club is poisonous, our great club is a laughing stock.
For me, the answer is to cut our losses and hire a young, passionate, forward thinking manager.

Wasn’t it Brands who brought Dacoure in when Carlo hadn’t even heard of him. He brought young Kean in and the kid was never given a chance, yet the top clubs in Europe were fighting for him.
Richarlison, Digne, Mina, Godfrey, Branthwaite, Nikounkou. Gbamin, King, Delph, Gomes, Iwobi, Bernard.
I don’t believe he decided on Rodriguez, Rondon, Grey, Allan or Townsend.
And ultimately that is where the problem is. Their is no point having a DOF if you are constantly changing the manager. Each manager has his own style and the type of player he likes.
It would be like having a new wife each year. They would want a new bed, new furniture and the rooms painted. Then they would have their mates in the background saying, no don’t do what he says do this. It would drive you nuts.
Think the guy is in a no win position here, and I think that message he gave to the fan the other day pretty much highlights that. Yes the guy has made some mistakes, but they have not all been bad, and it would be fascinating to see what the aftermath is if he does go.
Might find out what is actually going on in the club, warts and all.
