What’s happened to the fabled black box? on 11:34 - Apr 18 by saints__fan__73
There was never a black box, that was just PR bollux.
We had a good recuitment team who have now all left the club.
The good transfers from the Koeman years were mainly players known to RK, Dutch or from the Dutch leagues so fair to say these were more down to RK than any blackbox.
The Carrillo transfer just showed that Reed and co. had given up. We haven't a clue who to sign so we'll just spunk £20m on a panic buy on a bloke just 'cos the manager knows him.

Not strictly true SF73 I have seen it and the room its housed in. The problem is the people interpreting and doing the recruitment. Look at Wilson the mighty midget and his background what in his career did he do to get elevated to spend millions?
Pied was a Puel signing similar to Strachan and Telfer . Carillo is just the most abysmal business I have ever seen...why recruit a player for a manager you are intending to sack and pay 18.9m too much for?
Lifes a marathon not a sprint
