That's the point of the Director of Football though. The manager is always going to be short term now. The budget will be as much the Director of Football's as it will be Pedro's.

So why do we need a manager if the budget is the DoF's? Two wages for one job. Great!

Except they're not doing the same job..DoF is in charge of everything to do with the club scouting, youth development etc. The manager is in charge of the first team.

The budget will be both. Director of Football will be focused on what happens beyond the couple of years the manager will be here. The manager will be focused on the here and now.

It's not the same job, it's splitting an existing job into two and getting the jobs done to a higher degree of skill as a result, in theory.

People don't like McInnes because he manages Aberdeen and is Scottish*. I would rather get him in that Mr. 8th Place League Title if I'm being honest, there is no scenario in which I can envision Pedro being anything other than a horrible failure.

 

*I've noticed a massive aversion to Scottish managers and players online in the past few years.

A failure like Scottish clubs and managers have made a very good habit of?

The thing is with a director of football, hes to blame if the players arent up to scratch. He would be in charge of recruitment, and i dare say would have an opinion on the style of play. The head coach would be purely picking the team and coaching them throughout the week. 

So if, in a years time, the team are rotten, whos to blame?

I'm sure if the Scottish league could be won despite finishing 8th then a few managers may have a league title under their belt, alas, you actually need to win more games than everyone to lift silverware at season's end over here.
