Professional sports organisations are traditionally under pressure to deliver sporting results, which firmly places the focus on the short term. Just as it takes time to deliver a polished performance and a challenging game on the pitch, it also takes time to build the backbone of a club. However, it makes a difference which path we take for ourselves. Just as winning games requires a coherent, cohesive strategy, so too does the business side have to be right and the backdrop has to be such that the club can execute it perfectly - and within a reasonable, sensible timeframe.
