But speaking of the board as well, I think another problem is your club's wage structure. For a "top club" with "top players", Arsenal supposedly doesn't pay as well while I rememberd reading something about Gasidis getting paid a lotta dough and even got a pay raise.
I won't have too much problems with having Usmanov. It's not like we need tons of investment like City and Chelsea needed when they first came to the front. We just need a strong figure upstairs that can remind the manager what Football is meant to be. At this stage, he have an accountant managing the club, with corrupt shady officials in the director's room.
Yes, the wage structure is such a joke. The other day Wenger came out and accounted that we have a "socialist" wage structure, and it was amazing that somebody as wise as him could even think of saying such a thing. We should be paying top players 150+, with the squad players 50k, and the reserves below 30k, but as Arsenal--Ramsey earns the same as Cazorla, with Diaby earning more than Arteta.
