Kroenke to face fans
Arsenal fans have learned that a representative of the ownership will be present at the club’s Fan Forum this afternoon.
The vice chairman of Arsenal Denmark Peter Høst confirmed on Twitter that the owner Stan Kroenke’s son Josh Kroenke would be attending the Forum.

It will come as little surprise to Arsenal fans that Stan Kroenke himself will not be in attendance. His son Josh has been the most vocal of the KSE ownership since their acquisition.
Many including CBS’s reporter James Benge offered up his view to suggest this is the ‘bare minimum’ which should be expected from the Kroenke family.
Josh Kroenke speaking to supporters is the bare minimum that is to be expected of him and his father. It should not take moments of deep supporter disappointment and unrest like this week or the We Care Do You movement for it to happen.

What the Fan Forum will reveal should hopefully provide some insight into how the KSE ownerships stands on the past week.
Campbell wants Kroenke apology
Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell has asked for the KSE ownership to release an apology like John Henry published for Liverpool fans.

Campbell claimed that Kroenke does not care for Arsenal in the same way that he does as a supporter.
“It would definitely help if Kroenke did an apology like Henry,” said Campbell
“However, I think the ship has sailed with Kroenke. I do not think he can get the fans back onside. Nobody is going to listen to him, especially not our fanbase.
“When he had a chance to speak he stayed silent. I cannot see an apology making any real difference to be honest.
“I wanted Kroenke out before this because for me, he does not care about Arsenal football club. I am a fan and he does not care about Arsenal in the same way that I do.
“But whether I like it or not he is the owner of our football club. If he could sell it tomorrow I would be happy but will it happen?”
Whether an apology comes this afternoon is likely to be forgotten as the man himself Stan, will not be present.
