Pleased to learn some more sense in the new era, from Raul Sanllehi, who stated that players contracts will no longer be allowed to run down, contracts normally for 5 years, should be reviewed no later than as they enter the third year of the deal. Gazidis and/ or Wenger cost the club millions as they allowed deals to run down and we either disposed of players for cut price deals or they left on a free. Hopefully, Ramsey and Welbeck will be the last players to go for nothing, which will cost the club an absolute fortune, both in lost sale fees and replacement costs.
In addition there is now a 15 man executive committee in place to make major decisions.

{Ed001's Note - how has Welbeck cost the club a fortune? Who would pay anything for him? Even if you put aside the fact he is like bambi on ice, doesn't score very often and has the first touch of Usain Bolt on a trampoline, he is injury prone and overpaid. He should have been out of the door years ago for being crap.}

Hi Ed, that's a bit harsh! Welbeck is a 27 year old current England International and if Arsenal hadn't let his contract run down in today's inflated market he must be worth an absolute minimum of £15m, probably closer to £20m and on a good day £25m.
I also stated that it would cost a fortune to buy a replacement and English players that can play in all 3 forward positions are at a premium, a minimum of say £25m, probably more likely to be £35-50m. A foreign replacement could possibly be bought cheaper £20-30m. So the fortune I speak of in lost sale fee and replacement fee could easily be calculated at a combined minimum of £35m.

{Ed001's Note - hardly harsh. Welbeck is a donkey and it is an utter joke that Arsenal paid anything for him. You clearly have no idea how this works if you think you can factor in costs for replacing a player that spends 90% of the time injured. If you are going to be silly about it, factor in how much will be saved on insurance and treatment.}

The Club has been run very poorly on and off the pitch regarding players being allowed to milk the club financially and get away with giving performances that would embarrass a Sunday league team with a hangover repeatedly season after season.

The club have wasted no time in putting things back in something resembling a professional football club where the players work for the club rather than the other way round.
The club has said it's determined to bridge the gap with fans and listen more to the fans views opinions and ideas of how to make the Emirates a more exciting place to be on match days and create formidable atmosphere that makes it not only more enjoyable for our fans to be in but for our players to play in and of course more difficult for our opponents to come to.
So far the new regime have been much more open and honest than the last one so I actually think they are serious about getting a better relationship with the fans which will be brilliant.
No I don't suppose they will drop the prices but it they deliver a better product and experience then at least it will resemble decent value for money much more than it has done for quite some time.

Ed - I...….

{Ed001's Note - I really can't be bothered with you. I think from now on it is best another editor deals with your nonsense and fantasies. I have no interest in even reading what you wrote so I will just delete it in case there is anything bad in there in response. I am sure you will be telling everyone you are right, and then later you will start a whole new thread to tell everyone how right you are etc. From now on somebody else will have to put up with your poorly researched five minute Google ramblings to tell everyone how 'intelligent' you are.}
