Following our recent disappointments the blogs have been awash with requests for Arsenal to spend money big money, in summer. Apparently, it was our lack of spending in 2015 that has led to our current situation.

Is Governance the Problem at Arsenal?

Who owns Arsenal and how is it governed? Although many fans would answer that Arsenal belongs to us, the truth is that we fans are just consumers of goods and services from the club we love.
