Management of a PL club from the inside

Posted by John Beech on September 7, 2009

John Williams, Chairman of Blackburn Rovers – a post he was promoted to  in 2005 from his earlier position as Chief Executive, is no ordinary PL Chairman. Clearly he does not subscribe to the culture of secrecy (see previous posting Culture of Secrecy) that makes any research on football management so challenging.

Today the Lancashire Telegraph published an interview with him by Andy Cryer. It can be read here.

This rare transparency is not only to be welcomed, but much more importantly it demonstrates that a Premier League club can be run on sound business lines.  Well worth the read.
