A variety of prominent Arsenal fans’ groups state “immediate action” is needed to halt the “alarming and desperate state of things” at the club.

In July, they called for owner Stan Kroenke to “renew” the Gunners.

Arsenal are eighth in the Premier League, 8 points adrift of a top-four Champions League qualifying spot.

” It seems like the club is rudderless and floating aimlessly, not sure of its destination,” said a declaration from the fan groups.

The collective of fans state they are backed by a petition with 120,000 signatures.

Kroenke initially invested in Arsenal in 2007 and ended up being majority investor in 2011.

The Gunners have actually not won the league because 2004 and their latest successes featured FA Cup wins in 2014, 2015 and2017

The supporters’ groups said that, while problems raised in the July letter “have actually not disappeared, it is the total alarming and desperate state of things, on and off the pitch, that need urgent action and take precedent amongst our concerns”.

They added: “Until the club, especially the senior management structure, is running efficiently, successfully and ambitiously then few other problems can, or will, be sufficiently fixed.

” The last years, notwithstanding the FA Cup wins, can legally be viewed as lost years, both on and off the field, when the group has not only stagnated however actually regressed.

” To date, that is the legacy of the ‘Kroenke years’.”

BBC Sport has actually called Toolbox for remark about the letter.
