I read that the other day Ivan and Arsene were having a chat on the training ground, and it got me thinking.
What were they discussing leapt to mind, but also, who was The Boss. This led me to my question: What is Arsenal Football Club.
An Institution? Certainly. A Business? Again, certainly. However the bigger question is how is it really structured, and what kind of structure would YOU like?
You have Fan Power at a Club like Barcelona. You have the Dictatorship Model at Chelsea with whatshisname stomping around getting involved in everything, or so it appears. Arsenal also have a solitary owner (effectively), but one who we reckon lies pretty low, ceding power and day to day running to others. Is that Ivan or Arsene?
Where should ultimate power rest, Owner, Chairman, Manager, Fans? I see pro’s and con’s of all models.
