The Kroenke family has an awful record with their sporting franchises over the years, with the sole aim of just increasing the share price so that their fortunes simply increase year on year, but suddenly this year they have managed to get the LA Rams into the Superbowl. Whether it was by luck or good management it is still an achievement, and Josh Kroenke has taken the opportunity to big up Arsenal and to say he is hoping for similar success with the Gunners.
Josh told the Telegraph: “To see where Sean has taken us [the Rams] in a short amount of time gives us a lot of confidence.
“The only thing on a par with the Super Bowl is Arsenal making the Champions League final.
“It is something we are very focused on.
“I have been telling my friends all week the Super Bowl is the biggest spectacle that we have here and the Champions League is something in Europe that we strive for and we look forward to being a part of in the future.”
Now that may just be rhetoric from our owners son, especially as Stan himself has never invested one penny of his billions into improving the team, but maybe, once Josh inherits the family fortunes, he will be a completely different type of owner?
One can dream, can’t one?
