Worrying times for Arsenal fans ? by James H
As you all know Arsenal have not won a trophy for 7 years and the fans are starting to get impatient, every year top players seem to leave the club I could name all the players but I would be here for a while so will only name a few: Fabregas, Nasri, song, and rvp. They are just the recent ones and many names have left before.
Ivan Gazidis claims that they need to sell top players to pay off the stadium debt ok so he has a point you might say but when you charge the highest ticket prices in English football you start to think why, why would fans have to watch their team slip into a dark abyss while paying over the odds to do so? Ivan said it was because of a rise in VAT but that had only risen 2.75% give or take however ticket sales had risen by 6.9% explain that one MR Gazidis?
Another point is the fact that players like Bendtner or Squillaci sitting on the bench earning around 50,000 pounds a week the same as Alex song had and he was a starter. A bit harsh on Alex – and can see why he left.
Also the fact that Arsenal reported a 50 million profit last year – 20 million on the annual stadium debt repayments so what happened to the other 30 million? As with the sales of rvp and Alex song they alone pay for the three new arrivals…
Another interesting fact is how a man who owns 29% of the club does not have a seat on the board is it because the board don’t want usmanov finding out they are lining their pockets ? A lot of questions need to be answered and its very worrying for the clubs loyal fans….
