The repercussions have started following the 1-1 draw with Brighton on Sunday that effectively ended our top-four hopes, and as expected, the players and Unai Emery have come in for a lot of stick but that is only the beginning.
Absent owner Stan Kroenke has been attacked left right and centre on social media and rightfully so, as owners go we have been dealt a sh!t hand, and my fellow Gooners have not been slow to express their displeasure with American Billionaire.
Here is just a sample of the comments taken from Twitter ….
Stan kroenke is a 67 year old multi billionaire, he puts no money into us. You’re old, you don’t have an age left, surely you’d find it much more enjoyable to put in some money and turn us into a team that competes? What a pointless asset we are to him otherwise.

Arsenal fans need too vote with their feet, it's that simple. Keep going to games to be a "good fan" and let the club continue to fail. Or stop buying merchandise .Stop buying tickets and make Stan sell . Your letting him ruin the club if you continue to line his pockets #ARSBHA

The worrying thing is the possibility of the parasite Stan Kroenke not backing him in the transfer window this summer. If he isn’t backed by Kroenke in the market this summer then he should walk away as he will be unable to achieve his goals and take the club forward. #Arsenal

Stan Kroenke worth 7 billion and we will have 50m to spend in the summer. The problem isn't the manager never has been its the people upstairs. Kroenke doesn't even come to watch us that says it all

Agree. Unless we win the UEL this season, I plan to cancel my subscription worth $40 a month instead of watching those bunch of worthless, misfiring loose canons, week in week out. We're slowly becoming the Aston Villa of 80s, with a money making miser called Stan Kroenke at helm

The whole club is broken and this blood sucker Stan kroenke will not rest until he turns this proud club into Milwall

I am absolutely frightened that teams like Wolves/Leicester will show ambition this summer and we won't and they'll end up racing past us. Stan Kroenke got to go ffs. Raul needs to use his contacts and get us a new owner. He needs to do treason, its the only way i'm afraid.

In essence, I hope this helps the board in waking up to smell the coffee. Our incompetent owner Stan Kroenke must either show the money or go. Arsenal fans deserve the top 4, but the hierarchy does not and that's why unfortunately we're in this position.

Absolute joke, defence letting us down again and with around only 40mil to spend in the transfer you can bet a pretty penny we will remain in the Europa for many more seasons, Stan Kroenke just needs to disappear from arsenal as he has no interest in the clubs future

It is hard to fathom the way that Kroenke is running the club, we clearly need investment in players to stay competitive, you do not need to be a brain surgeon to figure that out and for some inexplicable reason, he simply will not inject the necessary funds into the club to make that happen.
We make huge chunks of money from TV, gate receipts, merchandise, sponsorship and much more but that is just the tip of the iceberg compared to what we can be making and for someone that has made himself into a Billionaire not to grasp that is beyond me.
Arsenal deserve far more than what the American provides and I am not just talking about money now, I am talking about his support, his presence and love for the club, none of which he has ever shown. You just have to see him with his American teams to realise how far down the totem pole we really are in his list of priorities.
The fans want him gone and right now we are staying loyal to the club but if this sorry saga continues then the supporters will start to react, attendance figures will drop, merchandise sales will slow down and the club will begin a slow decline which will really affect the bottom line.
Stan Kroenke needs to get real now if he wants to see higher returns on his investment and recover the support of the fans.
