Arsenal seem to be doing well on one front which is the commercial side of the club. How can we not be making profits sicne we are not spending much money on player transfers? If there is one thing Wenger has done well during his time in charge of Arsenal is make sure that the club is financially sound.

Forbes magazine has rated Arsenal as the 7th most valuable sports franchise in the world assessing the club’s worth. This comes of the back of Stan Kroenke’s takeover of the club. This list makes interesting reading as we are doing a lot better than some of the big franchises you would expect to be top of the list.
franchises Manchester United is rated number one, whilst Real Madrid are the next football team coming in fifth and then we are 7th. Being ranked the third most valuable football franchise is the world is great. And hopefully following our tour this summer to the Far East, we will generate more revenue.

Spurs and Liverpool do not even make the Top 50!!
