I think our supporters have been more patient than most other clubs.
Since we moved to the Emirates we have inevitably gone backwards with regard to having any chance of winning the PL.
Imagine the supporters of Man U waiting that long before starting to show their dissatisfaction with the club and manager who are responsible for the position…
I have noticed this season that the expectation levels have dropped, which I think was the plan by the board and Wenger, and if we do get a top four place, it will be greeted as some sort of achievement by the people running the club.
When Wenger was interviewed he used to say we will challenge for the PL title and we can afford the best players, now when he is asked about what his opinion is on the same subjects he either pleads poverty or says we can’t compete with the big money teams.
I think this acceptance of fourth place, and never competing for much more, is taking over, and it’s exactly what Wenger and the board want.
The pressure is off them, and they won’t have to spend much more than the bare minimum, while making massive profits every season.
This is what Kroenke wanted, and that is what he is going to get.
Arsenal football club, or as it’s otherwise known, Kroenke’s money making machine.
