Surely the fans need to rise up and make an effort to get rid of PHW. Total lack of respect for us fans and as already said treats Arsenal as if it was his and we just get in his way and must agree with everything they are doing. Lets start with getting rid of him.

Thanks Skizz, you are a saint. :barscarf:

As far as I am concerned, lets put pressure on them, each match we need to make our feelings known. I'm fed up of this, we can't just limit ourselves to moaning at AGM's

I don't often agree with this twat, but this sums it up well:

@piersmorgan That #Arsenal AGM in full: Wenger downbeat (with good reason), Gazidis clueless, Hill-Wood offensive, Kroenke pointless.

@10akhil: Spoke to Arsene who tells me that RvP was offered 300k by Man City. Wow.

THREE HUNDRED FUCKING GRAND A WEEK??

@10akhil: Arsene told me that a overseas tour is not good prep for the start of the season but has to be done for commercial reasons. #afcagm

@10akhil: Wenger said he does not regret taking pires off in 2006 final but maybe taking Cesc off from Flamini was a mistake.

Every year this seems to get that bit more confrontational, but they haven't got the hint yet that people are genuinely unhappy.

Wenger and Gazidis are decent public speakers, tell people what they want to hear to placate them, people are now against Gazidis as he has no history of success to fall back on, Wenger obviously does and therefore gets an easier ride. Even those who now desparately want him out (myself included) would prefer him to wake up and turn it round (not going to happen but I wish he could).

Hill Wood is an embrassment, bad mouths anyone who slightly disagrees with his opinion, I know there was some sort of agreement when Kroenke took over about him staying on but for the sake of the relationship between the club and the fans they have got to find a way to get rid and fast.

Kroenke doesn't seem to know what is going on, the dividends issue is also a worry and I won't be surprised if that coincides with the new commercial deals that are on the horizon, thus negating their impact somewhat (which we have been led to believe will be our great salvation).

It's never going to happen that all of them go at once, but the short term should be to get rid of Hill Wood and Wenger. People might think that Kroenke and Gazidis are a bigger problem than Wenger but the only way to prove if he is the main problem is to get rid of him. Wenger is too set in his ways, even if Usmanov came in I'm not convinced he would sign the top players we need. If the next manager also fails to invest appropriately then that is the time to go after the baord big time to force change.
