Fans will ask Gazidis whether he will be getting a bonus in light of poor team performance, and why there has been no ‘catalyst of change’
ARSENAL’S disgruntled fans will have the chance to grill chief executive Ivan Gazidis before Saturday’s clash at home to Bournemouth.
Around a dozen fans will have the chance to meet Gazidis at Highbury House in what is sure to be a fiery encounter.
The meeting has been co-set up with Arsenal Supporters’ Trust, with a list of questions that will be asked already emailed out to their members.
Gunners fans are already fuming at how the team have started this season.
They snuck a 4-3 win in the season opener at home to Leicester, before they went and lost 1-0 to many people’s favourites for a relegation scrap, Stoke.
Then followed the humiliation of crashing to a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool, that has led yet more calls for the South African and boss Arsene Wenger to leave the club.
Back in April, 52-year-old Gazidis promised fans that there would be a different approach to how the club would reach their targets.
He talked of how there would be a “catalyst of change” – with fans bemused at how that has, or as the case may be, has not manifested itself.
Wenger was handed a new two-year deal, and despite rumours that a director of football role was being looked at, this never materialised.
It led to huge protests against Gazidis, Wenger and the way the club was heading before, during and after Premier League games last season.
The slogan “Time For Change” became the moniker for the anger.
Arsenal of course failed to qualify for the Champions League, although they did win the FA Cup for the third time in the last four years.
One of the questions to be put to Gazidis is why nothing has really changed from the old regime.
While fans will also ask him if he will “forgo any bonus this year” in light of “poor team performances, not making the Champions League, flat commercial revenues and a mismanaged transfer window”.
