The Kroenke Problem

Postby Big17 » Wed Aug 24, 2016 8:42 am

A few people have made some good posts over the past few days on Stan and the current situation we are in with the board so I think it's about time a thread is made for this goon.

This is also a very good read!

Kroenke is going nowhere until the club stops being the money spinning machine that it is. This is literally the MOST futile of protests.

We all want this puss-filled maggot out of Arsenal FC. But what are the chances? realistically?

Something drastic is required for him to sell his stake in the club. What could possibly make Kroenke be willing to relinquish control of such a profitable PLC that happens to play football every now and then?

Wenger out, Hodgson in. In two seasons, we'll be in the Championship. Usmanov and that Nigerian billionaire join forces to buy out Kroenke's shares. Simeone appointed in 2019 after losing a third CL final against Madrid.

And then I woke up.

Kroenke is the majority share holder of one of the most lucrative entities on planet. He ain't going anywhere.

Pretty much

It's just logical:

In order to create enough fan unrest, sadly we need the majority of the turds that chant wenger's name to wake up and smell the coffee.

They have clearly proven that absolutely no amount of rationale or utter embarrassment on the pitch will change their mind on wenger.

But the hope is as soon as he is gone there will be no point to their blind moronic support for Arsene FC. It should hopefully go back to Arsenal FC. And assuming the board are also a fundamental problem and go for a shit manager and don't give them financial support in transfers, then our league position will get worse. At which point you'd think the majority of fans now start protesting every game, the media bubble against kroenke et al grows etc.

Some problems I foresee however:

1) It would need to be a majority protest on buying merch/going to games as well, cause most likely Kroenke wouldn't give two shits if we're a mid table club with unhappy fans as long as revenues are intact.

2) Wenger may well not f**k off for another 5 years. Even if we dropped out of 4th place this year, who can put it past that slimey cu*nt from spinning it off as not that bad given his impecable 16+ year qualifying record before it?

3) Even if wenger is gone. It may turn out that his moronic supporters were actually not blindly following just wenger, but also fanboys of the board. And so whomever is appointed by the board as manager, no matter how bad (or even worse) will again get the unwavering blind faith of said morons for another decade.

All in all it's a bit doom and gloom. I mean the world population is sadly composed of a majority of absolute shit heads, but sadly our fan base has been allocated a disproportionate amount of these shit heads...

Good post, but you missed:

4) Alisher Usmanov sells Red and White holdings 30 odd % to Kroenke, and joins his mate at Everton, leaving Kroenke with close to 100% ownership of Arsenal. This is a very real possibility, with Usmanov only today releasing a media statement that he is fully committed to his Arsenal investment.

If this happens, we are truly f***ked, and he (Kroenke) will strip this club of all its money, and Arsenal will become like his American investments.

Really, AW should have gone years a go. A lot of us wanted it, and if it had happened, we'd already be long down the road of trying to get rid of the board and Kroenke. Now? It might be too late. The damage might already be irreparable if Usmanov sells up to him.

The only hope we have at this point is the enmity Usmanov holds for him (Kroenke) and the board. He might also cut his loses though, and just sell up and move on... who knows what will happen at this point?

For over a hundred years we've been owned by rich families. Right from Henry Norris and the Hill-Woods through Kroenke. This isn't going to change. The fans have no impact on who owns the club and never have. So this Kroenke Out business is moot.

1 year and 2 days since you decided to "grace us" with your presence here. Your posts are shit, your opinions are shit. This isn't going to change. You're literally pointless. So this 'you posting here' is moot.
