The majority of Arsenal fans would want owner Stan Kroenke out of the club before manager Arsene Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis, according to our poll conducted on Twitter.
Arsenal’s majority shareholder has never been very popular with the fans and could soon be facing protests throughout the season. When asked which one of Stan Kroenke, Ivan Gazidis and Arsene Wenger they would want out of the club if they could choose one, the majority of fans voted for Kroenke.

This is likely down to the recent revelation that Kroenke doesn’t plan to invest anything in the club despite apparently having the hunger to win trophies. The Arsenal owner’s actions have often contradicted any public line from the club about his so-called ambition.
Having not made any major changes to the club or invested a single penny, any talks of ambition falls flat. His methods have Arsenal fans concerned about the future of the Gunners.
Since becoming majority shareholder of the club, Kroenke has backed Arsene Wenger, handing the long-serving French manager a lot of power over the club, something which is hurting us now, I feel.
His dedication to the manager ensured that he received a new contract last summer despite Arsenal finishing outside of the top-four of the Premier League last season. Wenger himself may be a problem, but the problems start from the very top.
