It's the board we are talking about, not just the chairman or head. I don't think for a second that they are complete ****.U think the board is out there scouting people? Clearly says the board agreed with Rapid Ralf. That’s why their scouting departement will be gone soon.
What i do know is that they could have spent money and asked the scouts to get somebody stat.
I do agree that they would have been reluctant to spend so much money on a player.
