Debate: Has Arsenal became stagnated under Wenger and Kroenke’s running of the club? by Koss The Boss
This is my first time posting one of these debates because I believe Arsenal has lost it heart – and thats the fans. Arsenal at times are so irresistable to watch but a lot of the time are, without a doubt, the most frustrating team to support and that is because of what goes on in the board (money and ambition) and the management of Arsenal Football Club.
Firstly, Arsene Wenger has far too much control of the running of the club and does not care too much about what the fans want or think and Kroenke loves him for it! He does everything from the bottom up or at least has a say in whatever decisions being made by the club. How he thinks this struggling 3rd placed team would challenge with no outfield signings is classic stubborn Wenger. Its a slap in the face to all our fans who pay their hard earned money they put into an overpriced stadium to watch an average team…
Now don’t get me wrong he has been without a doubt Arsenals greatest manager for what he has done with very little finances, its actually remarkable what he has achieved but I have never heard or saw any other club whose fans are so divided in this man’s management of the team. This is because he doesn’t just concentrate on his job – and that is coaching the squad to win. He is calling all the shots! Yes, the fans are very thankful for what he has done but what matters now is what happens on the pitch, and to be honest are we really getting any better or moving forward?
Now that we have the money and stadium almost paid (easily managed now), we are a global brand and commercially up there with the best of teams, so why are we still at the same level we are at? Its simple, Arsene Wenger and Stan Kroenke! Arsene is happy being paid 8m a year to make sure we are a profitable club in Europe and Stan is over the moon just dipping into Arsenals funds for his own benefits, knowing Arsene wont spend it on the thing we need most, players. Is that what you fans want us to be? Or do we need change from both ends, the Board and Management? In my opinion yes we do, because we have a platform here to be a huge club along with the big boys of Barca, Bayern and Madrid and the management are holding the club back.
So no signings, bad management, awful board, more injuries (as expected by everyone bar Arsene and his new improved medical team). The team is not playing well and all we will get like every other season… Excuses, we have heard them all here at Arsenal! What do you guys think?
My opinion is easy, Wenger/Kroenke OUT… Klopp/Usmanov IN. We have a squad needing two or three really top signings with a manager to pump this team up, and not be so nice all the time. Usmanov wouldn’t need to dip into his own funds, we already have it. He is just more ambitious and wants Arsenal to win and would happily help out! Arsene out, as we have stagnated under him, teams know how to beat him and the way he sets his teams out! He is delusional enough to think he wouldn’t need outfield signings to get to the next level to win the league… He’s not ambitious whereas other certain free managers are! The fans have waited long enough for this moment and he is ruining it because its his way or no way at Arsenal Football Club.
