Our Self suffcient model during this pandem

As we all know Arsenal football club is run on a self sufficient model, unlike a lot of clubs.

Kroneke is happy for the club to run itself without putting any of his cash into the club but with this pandemic our budget will take a real battering.

We'll lose millions on matchday revenue because of empty stadiums and failure to qualify for the Champions league will see that money lost as well

Rumors Mikel Arteta has been told that he will be limited to free transfers only which is a joke.

Heres who is available to us:

Ibrahimovic
Cavani
Mertens
Willian
D.Silva
Pedro
Fraser
Gotze
Lallana
Chiellini
Kurzawa
Meunier
Vertonghen
T.Silva

Would any of these lot bring us up a level?

I guess with furlough Arsenal could get one or two of them 🤔

In all seriousness, huge wages for old players isn't the way to go. Maybe one, two max but all you're getting is a stop gap, at a huge cost. High risk as they have to adjust immediately and have no resale value if they don't work.

Mertens is the only one I'd risk tbh

Gotze at only 27?

Gotze wouldn’t adapt well to the PL.

We were linked with Meunièr last Summer

Could sell Bellerin for decent money and replace with him but dont know if he’s any good or not anymore if he’s available for free

And I’d take Cavani if his wages were reasonable

Let's be honest if he was the gotze of old it'd be a no brainer. He has declined but it's hard to tell how much.
He seems to struggle to play lots of games in a season but his talent was incredible.

The PL is tough. Would his body handle it? I'm not sure. Easily has the talent to succeed.

Im expecting players to be sold. Possibly Ozil and Auba if buyers can be found with only some of the money for them made available for purchases. Any money we do spend will not be spent particularly well and we will come out of the transfer season weaker in comparison to the teams around us than we are now.

This is how I see Arsenal under Kronke's ownership and nothing has happened to change this view.

Our self sufficient model can't be held up as Stan's golden excuse not to put money in, AGAIN. Next season FFP does not apply for the specific reason of getting the billionaires to put their money into clubs.

The self sufficient model is not fit for purpose, certainly next season. Especially with Newcastle about to be Saudi owned. The Arsenal brand is fast becoming a joke (if you don't think it is already) and we're as close to free fall as we've ever been. Can't see any financial worth for Kronke in AFC remaining mid table. Bargain buying to scrape a top spot simply CAN'T get us back in the mix. Not with yet another cash cow Saudi owned team on the way. Stan has to plough in a few hundred mil, or cashout now by selling up to someone who will. Otherwise he's going to start losing money in hurry, so far as AFC goes. We might just get lucky and get rid of him and get an owner who actually cares about football and his club.

Afc,
Don't think that anyone on your list would make a big change to this very boring team.

I would like to see the Gunners attempt to get Jack Grealish, who would at least light a fire under this team, rather than continuing to look abroad at some of the overrated imports as they have done in the past.

I doubt if management(?) will change their ways since they seem to have signed onto the Albert Einstein definition of insanity, by repeating the same old mistakes of the past and expecting a different result!
