Arsenals Champions league poor results are “just a noise” to sir Chip Keswick by KM
Kaboom baby! What was that? Arsenals two defeats in the Champions League are just some noise I guess? Did you hear anything? Wow is that a bad way to respond to some questions, Chip. I mean boy the lack of ambition is so obvious the board doesn’t do anything to hide it.
Are you really happy with this? I get slaughtered here when I’m not happy with something, but being in the top 7 of richest clubs over the world in the past 5 years, it’s a disgrace to receive such answers. Sir Keswick was pretty disappointed when asked about why Kroenke got 3 million out of the club for advisory reasons, again not giving a real answer.
He said: “If you want proof of what that’s worth then look at this (FA Cup and Comm Shield) and our accounts. I’m not Platini, not Blatter, if you get the right advice then you succeed.” Ok I get it, so you are saying you’re not corrupt? Why do you feel offended by such questions that you answer in that manner?
Ken Friar was given a 20 per cent pay rise this year, taking his salary to more than £1million, and on that Sir Chip had this to say “He’s 80 years old.” Sir Chips: “Your ageism is unattractive, he’s done more than anyone at the club”. Does anybody here know what exactly has Ken Friar done to earn more than a million an year?
This football club is run like a poorly managed rich country. Never mind all the money it has, the people are still being reaped for more gold in what already is a hefty bank account. Bayern Munich fans are protesting against the impossible prices at the Emirates and they are correct. At the AGM, a question comparing us to Germany was asked and Ivan again answered like it’s some sort of an alien thing for a football club to care about it’s fans.
Now sure, when we play football it’s all about the fans. It’s never about them when it comes to the fact that we give a manager 10 years to deliver a league title, more than 150 Champions league games plus 8 million an year. and we can all see the results.
Sir Chips said: “Arsene is in the best man to lead us as long as he feels inclined” in response to Q saying 3 titles in 19yrs is “a joke”. I mean tells you all about the ambition. On the board apart from Ivan we don’t have a single person below 60! I guess fresh and new ideas from this century are a dumb thing to have.
I really hope Usmanov some day decides to buy the club and restore pride and principles here. This is an absolute joke. A machine harvesting money in the pockets of already rich elderly people, while the results are mediocre to say the least and the fans keep having their pockets ripped each year.
