So apparently this is not a replacement for Harper, but a consolidated role due to the Football Operation Coordinator and the Football Operations Assistant retiring.

Thank fu** Saunders is gone, another part of the Burton bullshit getting the clear out.

Saunders and Kangatech have been as damaging to this club as collective minds so glad to see us put it behind us.
I agree with you on most things mate, but you’re way off the mark here.

So wait. We previously had all of:

Director of Football
Head of Football
GM Football Operations
Football Operation Coordinator
Football Operations Assistant

That's a fair few upper managers involved with a department that was utter sh*t for the last 3 years

My experience is that having too many managers compared to employees correlates quite strongly with being sh*t. Weather that is a cause of the shitness or just another symptom I'm not sure, I suspect a little of both.

In my limited experience it's easy for companies to get bloated with middle management, especially when things are going poorly.

No wonder we had to have a bargain basement coaching department.

It’s what happens when you have poor existing upper/middle management. You end up promoting people into new positions to cover those currently not coping in the role.

Can we get rid of this moron as well, please.
Actually, Smarty is a smartie, literally; extremely intelligent and has an MBA.
I'm not saying he's done a great job, in fact I just don't know, but "moron", he ain't.

Only poor senior managers do this. That's where the problem is, they are the ones setting the org structure and recruiting

Does an MBA have a module on switching to your burner account when trying to flirt with girls half your age on twitter?
