Stan Kroenke’s Latest Purchase Has Arsenal Fans In Rage Mode

The Arsenal owner has made a jaw-dropping purchase in his homeland which has left transfer-starved Arsenal fans fuming.

If Louis van Gaal is sick of hearing “attack, attack, attack” at every home game, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is accustomed to hearing “spend, spend, spend” at every transfer window.

Stan Kronke, the largest shareholder in the club, has finally dug deep and reportedly spent a cool $725m. Unfortunately for the Gunners faithful, it wasn’t spent on recruiting Messi, Neymar and Suarez. Instead, the investment went on a Texas ranch worth roughly £500m.

The 800 square miles WT Waggoner ranch represents “an incredible opportunity and an even greater responsibility,” the billionaire said in a statement. “We are honored to assume ownership of the Waggoner—a true Texas and American landmark.”

Arsenal supporters were up in arms, including infamous Gunners fan and perennial piss-boiler Piers Morgan.

Kroenke’s move has PR-wise gone down about as well as the Fenway Group’s plan to hike some Liverpool ticket prices to £77.
