armchair wrote:Quite a few posters seem to have become Wenger Out in season 2011/12. That's like a whole 7yrs after Wenger had last won the PL. My feeling is they were late to realise he was done but hey, everyone is different and some are still Wenger In even today.
Some of these posters are giving Kroenke pelters for "keeping Wenger for 13yrs"
Firstly, he didn't keep him for 13yrs. It's been 6yrs since Kroenke became majority shareholder. In that 6yrs Wenger has won three FA Cups. (Not to mention the glorious 4th place trophy)
I do find it strange that those Arsenal supporters who became Wenger Out in 2011 allowed themselves 7yrs with only one trophy (FA Cup 2005) to become Wenger Out, yet they don't afford the same to Kroenke (who isn't a supporter), and in the 6yrs since he took over he's seen Wenger win 3 trophys.
Also seems strange that Kroenke is criticised for not sacking Wenger but Usmanov would be fine to give him a new 2yr deal?
Here we go again on the Kroenke love train, just because you fear your man might keep Wenger then you will have to conceed he is as much the problem as Wenger himself, although I'm sure Wenger will still take 90% of the blame even then.
I have been Wenger out since 2008 and the collapse at Birmingham, I could tell there was something fragile about the team (apart from Eduardo's leg!), took loads of abuse for it as well as until around 2012/3 most were AKB's, since then it has slowly gone the other way and I think last season finally saw it land slide towards Wenger out but we got out of jail finishing ahead of Spuds so it should have been worse.
Kroenke has been involved since 2007 I believe so 2011 is somewhat selective anyway, he might not have had a majority then but he certainly should have had an awareness of what was going wrong with the club, then again he didn't give a toss because his man Wenger saved him $$$, he's had a decade and he needs to f*ck off just like Wenger, but he won't, and for some reason people defend him?, gob smacked, then again most were AKB's for a long time so now it's SKB's?.
Usmanov would demand Wenger made us a European force that competed for the title in the same way his fellow oligarch at the Chavs has done, that has got to be better than a mute profiteer who only cares about "his shares", or is it the old but this isn't "The Arsenal way"?.
