I think it will do the club good to have kreonke take over, the arsenal board have been too stubborn and put us in more debt with highbury square. By april next year we will have big problems as that debt is due to be paid. Kreonke for Arsenal!

Look, the problem is not money, the problem is Wenger. Even if Kroenke pumps bazillions into the team Arsene will not spend it, we'd have all the downsides to a new owner (debt, tension with the manager, ludicrous tie-ins with his American franchises, an owner who cares about nothing but money) with none of the upsides. While Wenger is in charge (and its going well now so this may explain Kroenke's caution) Arsenal will NEVER spend massive fees on players, so why do we need this takeover? Only if Arsene was leaving would this make sense, a Mourinho-esque manager would sweep in and replace half our first team with top-class buys and we'd be winning things again. But neither of these things will happen. I love Arsene to bits but we will never win another trophy under him, and this takeover is pointless till a manager willing to spend (and demonstrate ambition to the rest of the team such as Fabregas) is in place.

I completely agree with Marks comments above. It should be 100% benificial to the Arsenal team especially if you can find new funds to better the team as well as support Arsene in his beliefs. What we dont want is yet another club (like man u ) to be instantly crippled with debt overnight but i dont think this will happen with Arsenal as hes gradually bought shares with his own money so far and hasnt needed any sort of loans. The premier league is a tough place to be now and i feel that if clubs dont have GOOD foreign investment then they will surely fall down the league.

This was always going to happen. Being an Arsenal supporter, I am all for it as long as things remain the same in respect to wenger and what he does. He might be able to help pay off our debt or invest in new players? As long as he doesn't saddle us with more debt then things should be all good. People have been saying what kind of effect this would have on the team and the way I see it, this shouldn't be a problem for the team, it is the boards problems
