That's a good article Baron, thank you.
It hints strongly at the 'problem' with American owners over here - they don;t understand it and don't feel confident to do what they would in their other businesses ie interject and make decisions. Unlike their Middle Eastern counterparts (who probably know even less) they cannot just throw good money after bad until they hit a winning combination. So they tend to fall inbetween the two stools. What's good in that article is the key words "They're money men, first..." - it explains what I've been saying to Arsenal fans for a few years now. In essence they don;t care about 'success' in terms of trophies - as long as they're making a decent profit, they're happy. Arsenal make money - Wenger is safe. But it also explains why others have becoming a bit of a revolving door for managers.... they aren't making money, so get the next one in.
