New sporting director at Swfc


Recommended Posts

Sporting Director role title is different to the Head of Recruitment title that Downes held. An SD is closer to a DoF so suggests a more overarching role. 

Dowling's last job at West Brom was eventful. He fell out with Billic, fell out with Big Sam, fell out with the academy director who went to Villa and still slated him a year later, on Twitter, when Dowling had left the Hawthorns. Last straw was falling out with the owner after being told he couldn't bring Wilder in as manager. Baggies fans blame him for a lot of what was going wrong at the time he was at West Brom 

Could be an interesting ride if he joins. Maybe DC is bringing him in to take the flack on lack of player recruitment.

I’ve seen a few articles now and when they say we’ve signed 1 player, that doesn’t really put things into context if you don’t know the number that left in the summer.

In years gone by we’d only see 2 or 3 through the door each summer, how times have changed.
