I've used A LOT of time reading about these two staff-roles but I'm still confused.
I like playing the game with a lot of assignments and responsibilities - do I really need a DoF? I've read that if you don't have any real assignments for him, then he is still useful in the "Unwated List"-area where he automatically tries to offload player.
But is the staff role just a waste of money, if you want to do all of the choirs yourself?
The HOYD is another thing - you should have a really good one there, right? Is he the guy - together with facilities and such - who ensure good youth-intake? According to the responsibilities it is only him, a DoF or the cheif scout who can manage this task to bring young players into the club. But traning them, sending them out on loans and such - well, that is still my duty, right?
Hope it makes sense and that some of you will share your thoughts.
BTW, I'm always playing LFC
