You’re not going to hear a defence of Stewart Regan from me. The job of CEO of the SFA is clearly too big for him, this has been evident for years. But to be fair, the job had been beyond most. Anyone capable of delivering high performance at the Association over the last five years shouldn’t be at the SFA, they should be achieving at a fast higher level.
I know some great candidates for the job but I wouldn’t wish it on them. The SFA CEO job is for a hit and run turnaround expert. Make everyone hate you, fix a small number of things and get out. Of Scotland. Even then, you’ll probably fail.
Anyone who thinks there are simple solutions to complex problems should stick to politics.
We’ll see how effective the old media are at undermining execs in our game. My guess is more than you might think.
