Would you hire a new employee without speaking to him?
“Charlton Athletic’s new striker Billy Clarke revealed he never met Karl Robinson prior to signing for the club – only having the briefest of chats (on the phone).” More
Just seems a little odd to me. No conversation on a vision, goals, objectives or what KR would demand of Clarke and the other way around.
Hello Billy, you alright?
Yeh, I can’t really hear you I’m at a wedding.
Oh, me too. Do you want to sign for me?
Yeh, go on then.
Where you working now?
I suppose if Thomas Drieson says it’s okay, then fair enough but hardly the due diligence that Curbs would do, or the preparation Powell made when he rebuilt his squad.
