A big thanks to Mick, without whom we probably wouldn't have a club.

All the best for your future endeavours.

Thanks for everything you did for the club, Mick, without you we wouldnt have a club to support. I hope that the current incumbents are as long serving, hard working & loyal as you have been.
Hopefully we will see you on the terraces....I'm sure that you will be able to come up with a few tuneful, witty chants Very Happy

I find the lack of posts on this thread a bit depressing. Like him or loathe him, without him (and a few others) we would be clubless.

I personally feel that Mick will eventually return. As director of football he was, due to his contacts and vast experience in non league football, responsible for signing the vast majority of the 1st team squad. I certainly hope this to be the case anyway.

Surely Darren checks players out and decides who he wants to sign. I have no problem with Mick at all being a director or doing what he does best which is getting sponsorship for the club and advertisement. I just feel that the manager should be in total charge of football matters.

Completely agree with all this.

Well, Lancaster have been operating the DoF and Head Coach model though. So in that model the DoF would be responsible for recruitment, however obviously there would be consultation and no point signing anyone the Head Coach is passionately opposed to. Its a model that the English struggle to come to terms with and implement correctly, but West Brom would probably be best English model, with a strong chairman in Jeremy Peace, and then Dan Ashworth and now Richard Garlick in the Sporting Director role they can shape the way the club is run long term and provide continuity regardless of whether Mowbray, Di Matteo, Hodgson, or Clarke etc is Head Coach. At that level where you are running a multimillion £ business then its really a no brainer. That said down here where the demands on the manager/coach time are not so great then the more traditional manager role is still valid but it depends on the personnel involved.

The issue with the way Mick fulfilled the role was not necessarily recruitment or off the field, rather that a DoF should be in the stands not the dugout, that is the Head Coach's domain.

What on earth are you going on about ? Do you know how to make a trivial comment ?  Let's not go down the tedious avenue of boredom.  Lighten up a tad Janet Very Happy .
