Kroenke’s Lavish Spendings
On Saturday, Arsenal fans were busy marching against the club’s board chanting “we want our Arsenal back.” They questioned board’s spending and wage policies which prevent them from signing or retaining star players. They thought march will have a impact on Board. Really?
While the march was going on, shareholder Stan Kroenke was finishing an £80million deal for a Montana ranch 5000 miles away. It is 124,000 acre site – enough to fit 71,000 Emirates Stadiums in it. Wow right? Not so wow news for Arsenal fans.
