    Think we need one, which is a big turn around from where I was 10 years ago.

    What do people think of Jenas? Always comes across very articulate and smart, knows football and cares about us.

    And has absolutely no experience being a DoF or working in any role remotely similar - sounds like a great plan

    I don’t think it should be Jenas but I do think we need one.

    Yeah, Jenas seems like a nice bloke and an intelligent pundit but he's got fudge all experience on the business side of football. It's like how we all laughed with UTD planning to do the same with Rio Ferdinand. You could have them working as an understudy to an experienced person in that role, but not leading it.

    Levy is the DoF, he was a little distracted from the role during Stadium build out, but is back.

    Best DoF isn't going to help if Poch doesn't see what he needs, he was offered players last year and he didn't prioritize a RB this year.

    We got all 4 of our top transfer targets over the summer, and nearly the 5th icing on the cake one

    I think our historic issues have been i) offloading players who don't want to drop wages, ii) needing a zero net spend to pay for NWHL. None of that is to do with a DoF.
