“I know the ownership is much maligned. The Arsenal fan base want the Kroenke’s out. That is only because we have been extremely poor in recent seasons.
“When the team starts winning games, supporters realise that they have spent money. Maybe they have put the money in hands of people who haven’t spent it wisely but they have spent money.
“It is good that they can come out and talk to the fans. Things are slowly moving in the right direction now. There is foundations at the football club.
“I thought it was a pretty smart move from Josh Kroenke. He spoke really well.
“At the end of the day, whether people like it or not, they are the owners of Arsenal football club. They are in it for the long haul and they are not going to sell. They feel the club now so watch this space.”
