Has Spurs’ decision to use construction management been an own goal?
When a football club is aiming to win a league title, it employs individual players to form a team. The club signs contracts with the players, and pays each player as per their own contract terms. The club takes responsibility for the outcome of the season, and for the individual player performances along the way. The club also employs a manager to direct and enthuse the team to work towards the same goal; winning games at each stage to ultimately lift the trophy at the end of the season, and for the club to win the league title.
