He is not the outright owner of Arsenal Football Club but the American businessman Enos Stanley Kroenke or silent Stan as we know him best does hold a controlling stake as he is the majority shareholder with almost 63 percent of the shares.
There were a lot of things for Arsenal fans to consider and talk about from the interview given this week by the club’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis. Most of the papers and sports websites have focused on his comments about the Gunners not being able to beat our big Premier League rivals when it comes to spending power and his suggestions that the club’s youth policy combined with an ultra careful and disciplined transfer policy will continue to be the Arsenal way.
Arsenal have now started the short run of pre-season games in preparation for the tough start to a crucial Premier League season in which the pressure on Arsene Wenger and the players to mount a serious title challenge is greater than ever after blowing what appeared to be a golden chance last time around and with the gap since our last successful campaign now more than 12 years.
It seems a little odd that Arsenal Football Club would choose to drop a rather large hint about there being a lot more to come from the Gunners in the current transfer window on the same day that our chief executive Ivan Gazidis had issued one of those statements of his that sends chills down the spine of Gooners the world over.
Arsenal chairman Ivan Gazidis has confirmed that the club are trying to prepare themselves for the departure of Arsene Wenger, but have no immediate plans to move on without him.
I guess that most of you out there in football-land have heard the Arsenal transfer rumour going around about the Arsenal board issuing our manager Arsene Wenger with a spend or go ultimatum for the summer transfer window. Basically, it goes, they are fed up with the prof just like the fans and will no longerr accept him sitting on a massive cash pile while there are players like Ibrahimovic, Higuain, Poga and Kroos out there that would definitely improve our chances of winning the title.
Arsenal Fans are arrogant and deserve nothing. by Galen
