We're all missing the bigger picture here.

It means LLCOOLSTEVE will start posting more regularly again.

So for that reason, I'm disappointed.

(However, my personal opinion of his actions when he left for Bolton aside, so long as he's limited to spotting players and that sort of thing, it's probably not a bad move. Frees FDB and SP to focus on the team and the club respectively.)

Ignoring all the history, what exactly qualifies him to advise FdB on anything? He's barely played or worked at PL level

100% agree but signing players for your own team and signing players for someone else's team is completely different.

I can see the sense in appointing a Sporting Director. However the fact it is Dougie is a bit of a "meh" appointment in my eyes.

Interesting appointment. He has a good track record with recruitment in the past. Jedinak and Bolasie spring to mind

He is a proven shit manager at two clubs after us. Perhaps explains the link with Burke?

Can't stand him for what he did. Dowie to be given a job next?

Well it should please half the fans then

The reason we do not move forward (I know we are celebrating a record stint at the top table but still flirting with disaster every season at some point) is because we always look back

Welcome back Dougie.

Left us on two occasions and regretted it, please don't make the mistake a third time. CPFC is his home.

He was manager when we brought in some great players, who were also good value eg Ward, Delaney, Jedinak, Bolasie, and Moritz.

Good appointment by the club.

I think this is a very important role to appoint to. Freedman obviously messed up when he left us and it was hard to forgive at the time, but for a number of reasons I think this is a very good appointment. We need continuity given our regular managerial changes so I think having a sporting director in place is a wise move. But I wouldn't ever want Freedman back as manager - hopefully he can succeed in this new role.

Whatttt??? Feels very strange to have the Doug back. Very fond memories of the start of the promotion season with him and was gutted when he left.
