    Warburton to follow is a question.

    JPercy #nffc set to confirm Frank McParland as director of football. Mark Warburton to follow in the summer?

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/footba...arland-9958537 - The Mirror say he's got the job until the end of the season, which is a bit weird for a DOF. Not weird for Fawaz's standards I suppose.

    Why on Earth would you employ a DOF from now until the end of the season? A period in which you can't buy any players?!

    Preparing for next season? ID targets and building team under him in advance?

    Perhaps it's not until the end of the season, and more "until the club is sold".

    In which case Chris, only those players signed by, or who played under Billy would be here next season.

    It's excellent news that he has joined which would indicate Warburton is also in the frame.

    As you said though, who an earth hires of a DoF until the end of the season?

    The appointment is definitely a step in the right direction but the news that it's till the end of the season just does not make sense.

    Good news, what I've read suggests he's good at what he does. But I agree that the until the end of the season thing is weird. Hope it's not just Fawaz trying more appeasement. Or McParland keeping busy/ paid until something better comes along in summer.

    Maybe McParland has no interest in directing a football team in League one.

    Could be he's been draughted in to assess the squad for a promotion push next season, but has a get out of jail free card if Brazil takes us down.

    Don't think the timing is particularly odd. If Fawaz is genuinely thinking of the long term it makes sense to have the DOF assess the squad for a few months before signing any players.

    Might also provide a few players a kick up the bum to try & impress.

    We also know that whilst FAH has many faults, he's not afraid to put money on the table when its required. McParland will be aware that being a DoF is probably the only role in the club where Fawaz will back you 100% ha

    Fawaz weighing up his options.

    He's definitely looking for a buyer and would like to complete before the summer.

    However, he knows this is very unlikely so will need a plan for next season should a mug stupid enough to buy the magic beans.

    The same owner who only employs a manager from June until January?

    I don't think the end of deal to the end of the season is all that odd. Fuzzy has been burnt many times by appointing people who he just doesn't get along with an sacks them after a few months, ala hunter and faulkner. This deals let's both of them have a decent engagement before the big day.
