Arsenal fans still unhappy with club ownership
An end-of-season survey shows Arsenal fans are still not happy with Stan Kroenke
Arsenal fans are still unhappy about the way the club is being run under American Stan Kroenke, according to an end-of-season survey that was released on Monday.
The Gunners have enjoyed a positive 2013 so far on the pitch after their late push to Champions League football saw them finish fourth in the Premier League ahead of fierce-rivals Tottenham Hotspur, but off the pitch, things aren't as rosy.
Despite Kroenke promising manager Arsene Wenger over £70million to spend in the summer, the majority of Arsenal fans are still not happy with the American being the majority stakeholder.
With the healthy transfer budget given to Wenger, the manager is lining-up bids for the likes of; Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Real Madrid's Gonzalo Higuain, Everton's Marouane Fellaini, Bayer Leverkuson's Lars Bender and also Queens Park Rangers' Julio Cesar.
At the end of season general meeting, Kroenke revealed that the club are in a strong financial position and he admitted that the club are finally ready to compete with the big-spenders in modern football, but despite the promises and the positivity, the fans are not feeling the same.
In the survey, it was revealed that the majority of fans are not happy with the direction the club are going especially since their move from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium back in 2006.
Almost 3,500 fans filled out the survey for Arsenal Football Club and a whopping 84 per cent said the board were not running the club effectively and 87 per cent thought the Kroenke regime was not beneficial for the club.
The fans also expressed their feelings about the club's ticket prices and also the lack of atmosphere created around the Emirates Stadium on a match-day.
Tony Adams made a recent dig about the club saying they lack football-people and only have business-people involved within the club and that is something the fans tend to agree with.
