    I find it funny how football clubs are now becoming businesses. Now I don’t know an awful lot about business (being 17 can you hardly blame me) but I am sure every business needs a short, medium and long term goal? If we are trying to sell we need people working on the takeover behind closed doors and people working with the rest of the staff on the results on the pitch and with the rest of the staff so the club runs fluently. It’s a big shambles to see no care or direction in the club.

    Well put, Robson. The term ‘business’ gets thrown around by the owners and directors of football clubs, often without them ever realising what the word even means. Football club owners and directors, and regulation, needs to start to ensure that clubs operate with a long-term view in mind. Most businesses would go kaput if they behaved like clubs do.
