No its for delegates only. They will publish the results, here are the questions AST will put:

AST questions to Ivan Gazidis at tomorrow's Fans Forum
In recent weeks many members have contacted us expressing concerns and posing questions about how Arsenal have handled the re-appointment of Arsene Wenger and the summer transfer window.

We have therefore consolidated these views into the following questions for Ivan Gazidis at the Fan's Forum. We will update members on the answers provided:

1. Can you explain what you expected to achieve when you talked of being a 'catalyst of change' at the Club in the spring. Who or what prevented you from subsequently doing much?

2. In light of the poor team performances, not making the champions league, flat commercial revenues and a mismanaged transfer window will you offer to forego any bonus this year?

3. The AST has previously commissioned independent governance reports into how Arsenal was run. That report made several key observations including that their was not enough strategic planning, that the Board did not have enough of the right skill sets and that too much power was concentrated in the hands of the manager leading to a lack of accountability. Please can you comment on the governance arrangements at the club including on why it is possible for the manager to be reappointed against the wishes of the independent members of the Board and also on when Arsenal will improve their governance arrangements including through appointment of new Board members?

You can read the independent reports commissioned by the Arsenal Supporters trust on governance here

4. AST analysis shows there is plenty of available cash for strengthening the team. The last transfer window could have seen almost £100m net spent on players. Please explain why these resources weren't invested in the team.

I wouldn't get up too early



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.
