Fans Give Wenger Backing But Not So For Kroenke

The Arsenal Supporters Trust annual survey result has been released with Arsene Wenger having the massive support of 77% of AST members that participated in the polls.

The annual survey is an important tool used by AST to form important policy positions; this is subsequently forwarded to the management of Arsenal FC to reflect the views of its members.

Questionnaires were sent to 1067 AST members and 636 responses were received which represents 60% of the membership. The responses are believed to represent a diverse spread of Arsenal supporters including shareholders, red members, overseas supporters,
season ticket holders and Arsenal Fanshare members.

While the results showed that Arsene Wenger still retains the support of a majority of the fans, the same can not be said of majority share holder Stan Kroenke who 75% of those polled said they are not satisfied with his vision for the club.

Rogue shareholder, Usmanov may have succeeded in making a case for his proposed vision for the club with the 5-page letter he wrote to the board in the wake of Van Persie's missive last Wednesday informing the club and fans that he will not be extending his contract; 82% of those polled believe his Red and White Holdings should be offered a place on the board of the club.

Also important is that 60% of those polled continue to support the club's contentious "Self-Sustaining Model" which dictates that the club is financed solely from revenues earned by the club without outside investment.
