But we often forget that running a football club is, in many ways, no different to running any other business. In the interests of creating or preserving shareholder value, a successful club needs a skilled management team, a quality talent pipeline, and a sustainable balance sheet. It needs to comply with appropriate regulation and thrive among healthy competition.
