They are different things RFA, but don't miss the chance to take time out and enjoy the good stuff which right now happens to be going on out on the pitch and in the stands. Believe me, to be part of that at the Sp*rs and Milan games was something else.

And have I never suggested that the only way forward is the status quo or sugardaddy route. I just put forward some alternative ways other clubs do their business and by whom and suggested that ours isn't nearly so bad by comparison.

The notion that shareholders have taken money from the Club is wrong. They have made money from being shareholders of a business listed on the Private Stock Exchange. It's not the Clubs money and doesn't affect the financial figures the Club produces. Whether you like it or not, stock markets exist for people to buy into and make the most of. Personally, I don't like them, but there it is.

As for saying the only reason we moved to Ashburton Grove was so the shareholders could make loads of money? Whose idea was it? Arsene Wengers. Not anyone on the Board at the time. And the Club spent almost everything it earned on getting the Stadium built.

And the Highbury Square and other projects have paid off a large chunk of the debt which is down to a third of what it was a few years ago.
