You can see why Kroenke may be hesitant about throwing even more money at the club. He is not getting many bangs to the buck at the moment.

When a team is several places below teams that have a smaller wages bill its serious mismanagement.
A sign of players not worth they are paid, or the wrong players, or poor motivational skills of manager, or even a combination of two or three of these factors.



- 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.

I think were still paying the price of IGs management.
Merlion lays the blame on RSs leadership on another post, but I suggest that that fire has been going on for much longer.
IMO we've never recovered from missing out on the CL 3 seasons ago. Our club openly state we're paying CL wages and playing in the Euro L.
Too much sitting on the hands and not being pro-active enough from our board in getting our finances in order is more the point.
As for our owner having a reason not to invest? He never was/is going to invest.
Think back to when it all started to fall apart. Exactly the time when SS took control of our club.



Self sustainable is a word that rich people with short arms and deep pockets use.

At the moment, you are correct.
I've followed Arsenal thru the 60s, 70s, 80s till now and there have been many occasions when this has been the case.
Part of being a fan is the ups and downs of your club. It makes us all stronger to come thru it and find that oz of glory on the other side. It's why we do it.

Absolutely agree, but we are going to have to dig in for quite a while this time, unles the unexpected happens.

This I would suggest goes back as far as the move from Highbury.Its a tale of mismanagement and diabolical recruitment allied to the people running the club happy to stagnate whilst all taking fabulous wages.



Under new managment

David Dein.

Shareholder, Director and Arsenal fan on the board. He left and we started our decline.

I hate to blame Wenger again, I think this was his policy, but he used to pay 'social' wages. The kids got too much and the stars got too little compared with other clubs, thus the wage bill was high but along with other reasons, we couldn't keep our best players because the wanted more money in line with other big players.

Why would I disagree with that? Some of our nothing players were on too much money, some of our best players like Monreal were criminally underpaid, and it was down to Wenger. Open and shut case.
