They have recruitment staff and a DOF or sporting director who oversees it, so that the strategy and long term aims are not chopped and change every time a new manager comes in, leading to overhauls on the squad every 18 months.
So we need someone who dictates the long term aims of the club, that i feel is the owner, who chooses a manager to achieve the objectives set out.
If we overall the squad every 18 months, then the system is failing,
We have a C-E-O who controls the budget for the financial year, and a manager who makes it work to improve the squad.
And a owner who makes the final decision.
Unless we have a distinct failure in our development, then as a unit we move forward.
Head Coach is another word for scapegoat, someone who fails for other peoples mistakes, and 18 months is normally his life span.
locally Derby and Forest are good examples spending millions to fail, both had Head Coaches, while others controlled transfers and spending
