New man would have 1,000-plus ideas he could bring to Pompey

Mark Catlin has reacted to talk of Michael Eisner wanting to appoint a director of football by saying he probably has more than 1,000 ideas to improve the club.
But the Blues chief executive points out he won't implement all of them.
BBC Radio Solent reported on Wednesday that should Eisner's takeover bid be accepted, it was understood he wanted a director of football as a link between the manager and the board.
Paul Cook's thoughts on the issue are not known but Catlin has told The News: ‘I don’t think it is fair for me to comment on any aspect of the potential Michael Eisner investment and his thoughts thereafter.
'However, I would find it bizarre knowing the highly-successful businessman he is if he wasn’t considering a whole range of ways to improve the club, whether it be commercially-related on or off the pitch.
‘I am assuming he has 1,000-plus ways to improve the club, but there is a world of difference between considering and actually doing it. I would be amazed if he is not looking at every aspect of the business from top to bottom. It would be foolhardy if he wasn’t examining a whole range of options across the business in regards of improving Academy status, the player budget, a development squad, and so on.
‘Knowing Michael’s exceptional record of developing successful enterprises, changes have always been carried out – successfully I might add – following consultation with the professionals in that relevant field.'
The PST held a meeting on Wednesday night to give members a chance to ask questions as the 14-day period for voting on the Eisner takeover bid continues.
