The Development Saga: Introduction
Hey guys, so this saga will take up a lot of posts. As we are now settled in to life in the Premier League, it is time to redevelop the club to make it bigger and better. There will be a lot of areas to be discussed, where I will do one per episode. I will give you a brief intro in to each episode in this post, and these episodes will be meetings between five key characters; manager Paul Hewson, chairman James Talbut, director Kevin Johnson, assistant manager Gareth McAuley and club captain Euan Smith. Here is a brief rundown of what you can expect in each episode:
Scouting Network & Club Affiliates:
Paul Hewson, James Talbut & Kevin Johnson will be looking to take the club's financial advantage over others by hiring top scouts before the transfer market even opens. Building a top scouting team and system will be key for the future. Club affiliates will also be discussed.
The most important thing right now is securing the signatures of players who we need to strengthen the first team. Paul Hewson, Gareth McAuley & James Talbut will be discussing what each target could bring to the team and what the price range for each player is likely to be.
If there is any of the transfer budget left over after making the signings for the first team, Paul Hewson & Gareth McAuley will look at some of the young prospects around the block who Vauxhall could bring in for the future.
Stadium & Facilities:
Paul Hewson, James Talbut & Kevin Johnson will be discussing the future of Vauxhall Stadium and Vauxhall's training and youth facilities in depth. There will be a lot to talk about over these areas, as they are key to any football team.
Paul Hewson, Gareth McAuley & Euan Smith will be discussing players and staff in the club's senior team, reserve team and under-18s team. They will be discussing the strengths and weaknesses of each and what the future should look like for each.
