    Lets be honest the commercial revenue of the club has never been at the levels of other clubs even under Wenger. A blind man could see Wenger needed to go when he did maybe even before that. You need to move on and join up with the fanbase and get behind the club and stop harping back to the good old days.

      Most people call it reviewing the history, and debating points of view, and welcome the chance to explore one view against another.

      A minority of people like to close down discussion, suggest that certain points should not be made, that debate should only focus on key points. It’s what the neo-fascists like to do. Doesn’t make you one, Matt, but your comments telling people what they should and should not debate take you to that zone. My approach, opens the way for democratic dialogue.

      Just a different style and approach.

    Matt, I do not accept that being an admirer of Mr. Wenger disqualifies me from membership of the “fan-base” any more than being a critic of Mr. Wenger disqualifies you.

    Tony’s full knowledge and appreciation of the Club’s history has been well documented. Clearly, he has a better perspective than many others of some of the “bad” as well as “the good old days”. You may not share his opinions, but it is ridiculous and insulting to suggest that he needs to “get behind the club”.

    Frankly, that the chinese market has problems does not surprise me. Whether it is political or economic setbacks.
    The loss of revenue is going to hit each team.
    And at some point, with revenues dropping we may come back to a football economy that is more balanced except for oil state clubs.
    But definitely it looks like the premier League is on a downward slope and that money is not growing on trees (or grass) anymore.

    Are Arsenal who own most of their stadium better off then some other clubs ? Most probably.
    I believe this coming season is going to be most interesting.

    So let us say that we follow Matt’s idea and join the fanbase (as he calls it ) . Then what ? We the fans come to the rescue of the club and give them money ? Our support the got for free !

    Ok , works for me as I love this club . And I need my fix ! And I probably may be able to contribute .

    So what are the rest of you lot going to do ?
    Write to your local elected officials/government for some aid ?
    Write to somebody or some parties that have your needs in their minds ?
    Sign those online petitions to ask someone else to save the club on our behalf ?
    Print moronic posters and fly silly messages of protests?
    Take to YOUTUBE , and the social media ?
    Organise extreme and violent protests ?
    Or maybe just bombard blogs and sites that are not playing by your playbook ?
    Or you can just write memes and deride those who don/t agree with you.

    I await the response from the fanbase .

    A man wanted to get married. He was having trouble choosing among three likely candidates. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see what they do with the money.

    The first does a total makeover. She goes to a fancy beauty salon, gets her hair done, new makeup; buys several new outfits and dresses up very nicely for the man. She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive for him because she loves him so much.

    The man was impressed.

    The second goes shopping to buy the man gifts. She gets him a new set of golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes. As she presents these gifts, she tells him that she has spent all the money on him because she loves him so much..

    Again, the man is impressed.

    The third invests the money in the stock market She earns several times the $5,000. She gives him back his $5,000 and reinvests the remainder in a joint account. She tells him that she wants to save for their future because she loves him so much.

    Obviously, the man was impressed.

    The man thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the money he’d given her.

    Then he married the one with the biggest tits.

    Men are like that, you know.
