Kroenke could come under fire at AGM

Arsenal's majority shareholder Stan Kroenke could face tough questioning from fans during Thursday's annual general meeting (AGM), according to the Guardian.

Stan Kroenke: On brink of Arsenal takeover
Kroenke recently said he is hopeful manager Arsene Wenger will sign a new contract.

• Cross: Arsenal tradition
• Mangan: The Invincibles

The newspaper reports that a number of supporters' groups are unhappy at an alleged failure by Kroenke to hold a single meeting with them outside of AGMs in over two years.

The Arsenal Independent Supporters Association, the Arsenal Supporters Trust, the Black Scarf Movement and REDaction have all written to Kroenke, it is claimed.

Before his April 2011 takeover, Kroenke, in a formal offer document, "made it a priority to meet with supporters and fan groups in formal and informal settings."

A clause in the document read: "He recognises that fans are at the heart of the club. Their opinions and involvement are important to him.

"Mr Kroenke fully expects himself, the Arsenal directors and club executives to continue to engage with supporters for the long-term health of the club."

Given a lack of contact from Kroenke, the Guardian anticipates that supporters will raise the issue during Thursday's AGM.

However, an Arsenal spokesman said: "It's a well-known fact that as a club we engage with our supporters more than any other major club.

"There are regular meetings with the chief executive and senior executives and ongoing dialogue at all levels."
