Someone who knows more about the business end of soccer please help me out here. How does it work at most clubs? The GM is in charge of personnel, trades, buying players, and overall vision, and the Pres. and coach just go along? Seems like some coaches are also in charge of personnel.
How about at the Timbers regarding players and overall vision? Who calls the shots? I assume Wilkinson makes all the decisions about trades, etc. How much does he confer with Paulson and Spencer? Does Spencer have veto power over personnel changes? And how much input does Paulson have?
