Gunners Chairman Warns: Another Trophyless Season Could Be Ahead

By on August 3, 2011

Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has warned the fans the club could face another season without a trophy.

The Gunners have now gone six seasons without a trophy and Hill-Wood claims it has become increasingly difficult to challenge clubs with far superior spending power. He told the Daily Star:

“Some people have gone 25 years without a trophy and it is becoming more and more difficult with all the people with unlimited pockets.”

As for the price rise for season tickets, where Arsenal were already the dearest in the league, Hill-Wood said:

“People don’t seem to realise that VAT went up so we weren’t trying to make any money out of it.”

    1 usamanov is richer than abramavitch,
    2 i believe kroenke is as rich as abram
    3 FifA rules are not in place yet and as man city have found there are ways around it..legally perhaps not morally.
    4self-sufficiency surely means that you can manage a small debt..or a loss for a few weeks, untill your sales cancel your purchases.(mata and the cesc obstacle)
    5. we generate 4 million a match from the emireates…hardly peanuts is it!
    Phw, gazidis and wenger are the 3 stooges……interested in profits before a successful team…that much is obvious. Problem comes when players work that out and believe there is no ambition in this club and want to leave.
    I dont blame them at all. How does anyone expect cesc and nasri to be excited playing in the same team as muppets like squilacci and djourou.?
    in arsene we plummet

    Wenger and Hill-wood promised the fans that they’ll be very busy in the transfer market. untill now nothing has been done. does it mean that Stan, Alisher and the board have no money to fund new signings? then why hike ticket price if U cant invest. see what happened to River Plate. is Arsenal next? only time will tell

    these people are full of excuses. Now because there is a rich guy living next door you wont feed you kids because his pockets are deeper than yours? Get out of here. if clubs that are less richer than Arsenal can buy players why can’t Arsenal buy the players they need.
