Cashburden Grove? I Don't Think So
Those of you who 'enjoy' a visit to other Vital sites will have noticed the editors of Vital Chavski and Vital Spuds often refer to our spanking new stadium as 'Cashburden Grove', suggesting that our move to Ashburton Grove was one that will cripple us financially.
Well upon release of Arsenal half year financial results (the first since the move) I think it's safe to say that the respective editors will have to find a new nickname for our stadium.
The figures are impressive to say the least.
Compared with the figures from the same period in the previous season the club turnover is up to £100.8 Million from £57 Million & the operating profits are up to £20 Million from £8 Million.
You can read the full interim document here.
Even though we have only been at our shiny new home for a short space of time, it's plain to see the reasons why it was so important to make the move as the club's ambition to take our standings to the next level.
So any comments made from here on in can be presumed as jealousy after their well thought out statements have been proved to be a far cry from what they would have you believe.
