Andrew Stone

Recommended Posts

It's not been confirmed on the OS, but Andrew Stone has confirmed on his Twitter account (@ajstone24) that after 6 years at Southampton, he is the new Head of Performance Analysis & Technical Recruitment at Villa.

 

The end of Paddy Reilly, perhaps?

Never heard of him but Southampton haven't been to shabby over that time. 

Welcome to the nut house.

Nice. This is one piece of the puzzle, but with Xia's ambition, the other recruitment at the club, a couple of new signings and some dead wood being cut (not happened yet obv) things will start to look a lot better. In the words of John Lennon; it can't get no worse.

Welcome Andrew, could you start analysing and recruiting today please?

Is the Technical Director who the Birmingham Mail said was going to be seen as a coup.

When you google 'Andrew Stone Southampton' there are no search results about Southampton football club. But then again I don't think there was much information on Almstadt either.

What a great appointment. Saints are going off the boil. We'll have a key figure from their promotion and prem league success and they can have eric black.

If we're bringing in Southampton staff who were in any way responsible for recruiting then that has to be great news. Quite how we pulled it off I don't know. This tells me that our project must genuinely be every bit as ambitious as we hope it is, if we can lure someone like that in our current predicament. Exciting times ahead *fingers crossed*

Large pay packet I would assume, and the promise of sustained budget for recruitment. Would have to be motivation for someone in that line of work surely.

Yep I'd say the wage thing goes without saying, otherwise you stay put. But I still believe he would have to be in some way excited by the project being proposed too.

Yeah, that's kinda what I meant abotu the sustained budget thing. It's a recruitment man's football manager wet dream.... "Take this shambles, I'll give you all the money you need, and turn them into a winning top flight side..."

It can't be that much of coup can it, he's pretty much ungoogable. Even his twitter has very few followers, surely if he was that instrumental in Southampton's success a lot more of their fans would be following him.
