peter I will answer each of your list
if you opened yours eyes pete you would know that I have clearly stated things are not right with wenger's managerial reign, not only in recent years, but even in his successful seasons, he has always under acheieved with his Arsenal teams,
And I clearly blamed AW for the mess end of last season, the mess last summer, the mess early season, the mess jan window. He is at fault for the squad we have, the tactics we use, the wages we pay and who gets what(self sustaining only means the club want wages to be somewhere between 50 and 60% of turnover, its wenger who wastes much wages on having over 70 players - about 20 too many - its wenger who wants the mid-earners close to the top earners, - its wenger who sticks by his heirarchy of selection
I have never stated everything is alright with the team, but I can understand why a numpthy like you would confuse someone saying things are not as bad as some make out, with that meaning they are saying everything is alright. Heirarchy of selection, a total belief in the teams tactics and carrying injured players in the squad are major problems, also it seems AW can not keep the squad motivated.
The Boards stadium investment
the one thing that everything is alright with, fantastic stadium
Selling short the fans
As stated many times, its my view Wenger has underachieved, and should have won a couple of trophies in the last seven years, so yes he has sold the fans short
The board has sold the fans short with their 6.5% ticket price increase, again something I have been very critical of, but as long as demand outweighs supply then this is the sort of thing that goes on in life.
One point other than your list, going on recent comments from Wenger and Usmanov, even if AU gets on the board, things will not change, wenger made it clear he is open to Usmanov getting on the board - as long as he don't intrude on football side of things - and usmanov has stated he things AW is a genius of a football manager - so not sounding like he would look to change AW approach if he comes on board.
So apart from the Emirates Stadium being a complete success, your basically not happy with AW management, team performance and selling fans short. I guess that makes you a JUlie, Tom and a Troll?
