Clear lack of ambition by Arsenal Board by RJK
The Arsenal Board and the Manager are taking the fans for granted. They forget the team is only there because of the fans. They continue to charge top dollar for replica shirts, memorabilia, gate charges, meals and drinks yet they are unwilling to change a philosophy which has failed time and time again (8 years now).
A great physicist, Albert Einstein once said ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity’. Why is the board not signing a world class player to lead the team to trophies? Falcao from Athletico Madrid is one such player. For 45 million pounds which is a par figure for top players now he can bring 40 plus goals leading to trophies.
The fans patience is running out and a tipping point is nigh. Arsenal will definitely be a permanent mid-table side at this rate. The lies and excuses given by the majority owner and board of their ambition will soon be seen for what they really are. Financial fair play will soon come in but Arsenal will still remain behind the big teams. Really there is no way Uefa will run a champions league campaign without Real, Barca, United, PSG, City, Milan, Juve, Chelsea simply because these BIG SPENDING TEAMS bring in the sponsors. Financial prudence is always welcome but the odd big signing for 50 million pound would not do much harm to the team.
That money can be easily recouped by winnings and replica shirt sales. The fans are not asking for the board to sign Messi for 150 million pounds. Iniesta for 25 millon can do wonders, a proven World Cup winner!, Falcao for 45 million is surely worth the risk?
For how long does the manager want to buy 17 year old unproven players and expect to compete with Barca? Yes buy your 17 year old winger, promote from the youth team, but those players will need a star player to hold their hand and guide them. The Arsenal board must shape up or risk losing fans. They will soon struggle to get 20 000 fans into our Expensive Stadium where no trophy has been won since we moved.
I have no experience in running a football club and I do not claim to have, but those who do and are in the positions must now stand up and lead the club back to its glory days. The day I get an audience with a billionaire, my first proposal will be to buy Arsenal and really bring back the club to the group of big teams.
