So am I being paranoid or is the total radio silence on this issue worrying? I mean, we all agree this is probably going to be one of the most important and big summers in recent memory for us yet we don't know exactly when is Ward leaving and if we have anybody, let alone who exactly, lineup to take his spot. We don't know if Ward is leaving after the end of the summer window, as soon as this season is over, a set date in his contract in the middle of summer?
Considering the way this club works is that the DOF is the main cog in the transfers operation why is this issue not solved yet? Unless Ward is set to leave after the end of the window then how is the current situation acceptable? Even if we were to hire someone tomorrow, aren't they supposed to have time to adjust/adapt for the position and then more time to actually look for and identify tallent that he wants to go for, etc? Hardly sounds like something you can do and produce successful results in the space of one window unless you're being promoted from within which doesn't look likely because we would've heard of the news by now.
Anyway, I might be panicking for no reason. If so, please enlighten me.
