Arsenal can’t progress with this owner and Board

Arsenal’s problems are multifold and can only be fixed by a change in ownership . . . by Bryan G

Keeping Arsene Wenger in place is unambitious and reeks of weak leadership at the highest levels of Arsenal F.C. I’ve been a huge admirer of Wenger since the early weeks of his tenure at the helm of the greatest football club on this planet, and I’m eternally grateful for the initial years of beautiful football he delivered. But the time for him to move on passed some years ago, and the fact he hasn’t been forced to do so is 100% on the owner(s) and board. It speaks volumes to their lack of ambition.

The other piece I fault the board/owners on is our transactions in the transfer market. It’s been guileless. We bought a bunch of mid-priced players and we got middling results. We can’t be surprised at that. How many players have we bought in the last 4-5 years for £10-20M? Lucas Perez, El Neny, Chambers, Welbeck, Paulista, Podolski, Debuchy, Monreal, Mertesecker, Arteta, Gervinho . . . That’s well over £100M. Add in the ridiculous money we paid for Mustafi and Xhaka and we’re closing in on £200M. And this doesn’t even take into account the wage bill for these underachievers.

I can’t imagine we’d be in any worse shape if we’d taken that £200M and the associated wages and bought just two really top-level players (two from Lewandowski, Bale, Aguero, Suarez, Griezman and the like) and paired them with some home-grown talent.

On the home-grown talent front we’ve also performed miserably. Do we even care about our academy anymore? There’s not one regular in the Arsenal first team that came up through the ranks. Wilshere, Iwobi, Maitland-Niles and Nketiah are on the fringes, but are currently the closest thing we have to home-grown talent. Possibly we could claim Hector Bellerin is home-grown given we got him at around 16 years-old from Barca. Anyway, I say we get rid of all of those middling players, buy a couple of stand-outs to pair with young home-grown talent and get this club back on track.

For the record, I think the only signings we’ve gotten value for money from are Sanchez (~£35M) and Giroud (~£12M).

I contend that for less money than we’ve spent in the last five years, we could have the following line-up and three league titles in a row under our belt.

Czech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Kolasinac, Matic, Wilshere, Ramsey, Sanchez, Griezmann, Lewandowksi (or Aguero).

    Full of complains…seems like the fans know better

    Every fans in here or out there, seems like they have several billions in their bank account.

    time for the fans to spend 3 billion to buy the club, removed the manager and crap players and spend big to sign several players

    Considering world class players cost at least 100m, hence the spending should be over 1 billion

      Yeah, I can’t change the board so I stopped worrying about them! I think as long as Wenger wants to remain the board will not do much to send him out, and he is not doing much to improve our ability to compete with other top teams not to talk of winning premier league. So we play Tottenham today! Usually it will be exciting, but am not very excited! We might win, loose, or draw! But I pray we win or at least not lose so that we all can have a happy weekend!

        there is nothing to do unless we can buy the club

        Support and hope for the best

        Most fans just look at the final score and not at the actual game….

      Firstly. This whole website is about posting opinions so yes fans have a right to act like they have the money.

      Secondly just because our club owners have the money doesnt mean they are smarter than us.

      Thirdly probably most of the fans could run the club better than kreonke as they actually like watch and follow the game.

      Fourthly the money kreonke has is not necessarily earnt through his hard work of the club, no actuallu arsenal was a big up and coming clib before he took over he just had enough financial backing to do so.

      Lastly if kreonke and the board are so great why are we a failing team loosing money in terms of fan base on social media t shirt sales and other factors that give a true picture of the club. Rather than ticket sales and player sales @john ibrahim
