Spirit, it is hard to disagree with anything in your list .... But not only is the time & practicality factor, a major issue (unless the process is started NOW)
The main issue that may be standing in the way, of achieving any of these goals, appears to be John Nelms, who seems to understandably, have a need
to be involved in this process, but on past experience sadly, has neither the right experience or know how, in this particular area. And, as has been pointed
out by others, he (& others who may be advising him) must take, at the minimum "shared responsibility" for our choice of managers and our present mess.
Each of our past managers may have benefited from having a Director of Football to assist & work along side ... But if person appointed (by Mr Nelms?) is
a poor & inadequate choice, then of course we are adding to the problem !! If this makes any sense at all, I'm not taking any credit for it .... It's all been said
before, by other posters on here, who are much more knowledgeable than myself (What can't be argued (imo) is the Americans have financially backed us)
