Usmanov In should be the message against Everton. by Konstantin Mitov
Well guys, finally something positive I’ve heard after this diabolical season. Alisher Usmanov has made a bid to buy Arsenal, something that would save us from the free fall we are in. But sadly, reports suggest Kroenke has rejected the deal, despite no official statements.
This is interesting because Kroenke doesn’t care one bit about what we think, but money speaks to him on another level and a bid might be the wake up call that something isn’t alright. More interestingly the word change is the thing around Arsenal and it’s been kind of a forbidden word until recently.
Wenger’s failure in recent times won’t get him a better job than Arsenal and it’s just laughable how he turned around on his statement that he has to do everything once his future got into trouble. ““I am always open to things that improve the quality and the future of the club. Of course we can need help to become better. I am always open to that.”
We all know Arsene! He won’t change. We introduced Steve Bould and our defense didn’t really improve. We introduced new coaches like Forsyth, but overall I look at it and not much has changed. We’re miles off Chelsea and sadly, Spurs too, but the direction we are heading is important.
Some reports suggest we’ll spend big, but we did spent nearly 100 million last summer and where are we now? United spent loads of money over the post-Fergie era and are hanging their season on one game against Ajax. Money alone won’t solve the problem, especially given into the wrong hands.
And a series of bad decisions have lead to players feeling unhappy, uncertainty around contracts and fan protests like I’ve never seen them before. Now with one game left and the Europa league all but certain, we can voice one last message and it should be clear that we want Usmanov IN and Kroenke OUT.
Usmanov has been vocal about his frustration and disapproval of the way we’re handling transfers and our targets for the season, but he is sounded out of the board and unless he takes over, he won’t be influential to the situation. The main problem with keeping Kroenke is that he’ll never really put trophies and investments first, and he won’t try different approaches like Atletico or Dortmund, because he won’t let Wenger go.
It is so important for fans to voice their concerns now. After the season ends, we should be around the Emirates demanding change, because this summer it’s time to take a different approach and if we can have Usmanov lead it, I’m sure we’ll return to the glory days!
