I tried to point this out in the summer and got shot down on here for suggesting he was out of his depth. 

I don't remember this tbh, I was against the appointment from the beginning and said so from the day it was announced.

Oh my. So many aspects of the Bevington saga is horrible. 

1 - He was too inexperienced for that role.

2- He got that role

3- Didnt lose his role after *** recruitment and doing a bad job. 

4- Had to be excused from the role by himself rather than being removed. 

It also devalues what was said in the summer about the golden thread. It's just a load of *** to buy Woodgate time.

His linked in profile shows just how high up he was. Its staggering that he got that high up but a real damning glimpse of how little we know about football behind the scenes.

I remember, because when he was appointed head of recruitment, I wrongly assumed that he was there to hire non-playing/coaching staff as he had no scouting experience whatsoever.
 

You put me right on that and we had a right old grumble. crazy times!

That 'Tottenham want Spence' story is actually quite a tale, apparently Spence played with Mourinho's son at Fulham so Mourinho's known him for years. They say future signing so that probably means 2021 when his contracts up unless he renews but it's pretty wild hopefully Djed keeps his head straight.

I assumed he would be doing a kind of ambassador role, buttering up agents/contacts etc, didn’t occur to me what so ever that he’d be scouting ffs.

What does his profile say it’s behind a paywall.

Spence should know that extending his contract here to a real squad contract instead of youth, should be his best option. If he shows enough we can't hold on to him anyway. He should also know that if he refuses to extend it could potentially harm his chances in the first team. He needs to take advantage of his current form and sign a contract and nail down a regular spot for the coming years. 9 games into his career he shouldn't be contemplating switching to a team that he isn't going to play in. He sounds like a level headed kid so opefully he can see sense in signing a new pro contract.

Yep, exactly.

 

Unfortunately I think a piece of information like that, if true, shows that Gibson has really lost touch in terms of the football side of things. He needs to take a step back from the footballing side of things and bring someone in who is experienced in these things to run it. Everyone still appreciates the money he puts in and what he has done for this club, but sadly I fear he is doing more harm than good by continuing to be involved in football decisions at the club.

Again going by just rumours we’ve got Kenyon back in behind the scenes so hopefully Gibson has took some kind of step back. 

Just hope we keep him around through the good times aswell this time.

It doesn't exactly say that he is the one filing scouting reports, but he is more of a top man in that department. That said he doesn't have the credentials to make any decision on a player more than we do.

He won’t have physically scouted and assessed players no, but piecing together various inside info I’d go as far as saying he was deciding who to buy and sell. 

Based on the quote ‘bevington is leaving, woodgate Will now have final day on transfers’.

Spence won't play for Spurs any time soon, even if he does sign for them.

He'd be mad to even try and leave when he's only just made the team.

Still think there's a player there; hopefully he comes back keen in preseason.
